World of Warcraft’s Legion testing will return with a new build and new content

There’s still no word on exactly when the test servers for World of Warcraft: Legion will come back online following the winter break, but we can at least be certain that when they do come back it’ll be with bells on. A tweet from a Blizzard employee confirmed it yesterday:

What exactly the new content will entail is unclear, but there are lots of possibilities; the original test servers were capped at level 104, featured only one spec for the majority of classes, and didn’t feature Shaman at all. With no ETA, don’t bet on finding out this week; next week doesn’t seem tremendously likely either, but who can say?

rottenrotny   Blizzard is shilling for press. It’s working because the article here.  

Their whole business model is screwed. In the big picture, WoW has generated so much money it is shocking that they continue to demonstrate poor planning and lack of delivery. When they make the announcements that they won’t have content draught and less time between expansions – it’s pretty darn clear they know what is needed. 

So, with all the billions in revenue, you would think they would have put money into building out a proper process to deliver and maintain their subscriber base.

Honestly, whatever. 

I think this news site rocks. Love it, check it every day.  With that said, this is an extreme limited access event. So a few thousand people get access to alpha again… 

I assume that they gave all the bloggers access so news like this would be generated. Likely at an attempt to stop the bleeding subs.

I love how they’re just trying to pretend they didn’t miss their “beta this year” comment or are just ignoring it hoping all the white knights and fanboys will forgive them for it.  Who knows though maybe in this new build they could put some more effort in and actually make the artifiact quests unique rather than sharing some mobs and locations between specs/classes.

rottenrotny It just says “gimmick” to me and not much else. Like they were trying to find a way to use fewer man hours and less effort to make an expansion, while making it seem like it’s the players who benefit.

Sorry, but I just have no interest in keeping the same weapon through an entire expansion. As I said, I really enjoy upgrading my gear in RPGs and seeing new weapons and in general just changing things up a bit (sword to axe to spear etc). It is (or used to be) an achievement to get a rare weapon or a unique-looking weapon that complements your appearance. Now everyone walks around with the same weapons that might look slightly different as they advance? I’ll take a pass.

Companies tend to favor audience in place of loyalty. Especially when half your player base quit due to lack of content among other problems plaguing WoD.
If we had only stayed in Pandaria.

Sometime at blizzard had the brilliant idea that less choice is more fun.
Also pigeon holing is into few transmog options for artifact weapons as well.
After 11 years of being able to do so, shadow priests and fire mages will no longer use staves.
And there are more..

10 years subbed and not one alpha/beta invite.
I don’t stream while making dumb noses and never shutting up with 1000s of followers. Alas, I’m just the former professional QA tester guy who’s been there since the beginning.

Sorenthaz Avarius I won’t apologize for having a different preference than you. I like variety, simple as that.
