World of Warcraft updates patch 9.1.5 with a release candidate and delays the Sylvanas novel once again

Scamp.

Oh, Sylvanas, everyone’s favorite character in World of Warcraft (citation needed)! That lovable scamp (citation needed) has had a longstanding and consistent character arc (citation needed) that the next novel, helpfully titled “Sylvanas,” will no doubt help to cement and improve (citation needed). Unfortunately (citation needed) fans will need to wait a little while longer to actually read the novel, as it has been delayed by a month to March 29th, 2022. Speculation about the reasons behind the delay vary from a desire to come out near the next planned patch to supply line issues causing troubles with physical printing. Hopefully it’s worth the wait, though (citation very needed).

For the fans who don’t particularly care about novels but do care about actual updates to the game, we have good news; the latest version of patch 9.1.5 for the game has been flagged as a release candidate, meaning that the patch is probably not far from releasing to the live servers. An official date has yet to be announced, but it does indicate that the bulk of the work planned for the patch is most likely finished. That means some forward motion on actual content seems likely (citation needed).

Read the Shadowlands novel, wasn’t bad. Might check out some other ones.

Eyy, might get two whole patches this year.

The WoW reddit is a mess right now when I’ve peeked in. Like, I don’t think I’ve ever seen them so down on the game, not even during the worst of WoD or BFA. Someone pointed out that the game has been patched twice in two years – the final patch pre-Shadowlands and 9.1. Yeah there’s an expansion there but man…that’s wild.

We’re right in the traditional expansion announcement timing for the next expansion with only a single content patch out (that wasn’t too popular), a minor patch coming, and precisely zero information on what will be in the second content patch, if it’s even coming.

I get covid and all, but by now Blizzard should have figured out how to improve processes to get back on track. Almost every other MMO studio has figured out ways to keep up content without huge interruptions by now, and Squeenix is releasing a whole bloody expansion.

Honestly, the WoW team seems like a disaster on the leadership front and I have no clue what the hell is going on. They need to spend less time communicating about changes to jokes and flirts and more time giving players a reason to stick around and believe that there’s a future for the game, and something to look forward to.

After a certain point COVID simply can’t be an excuse.

We’ve seen other studios impacted by COVID and none are anywhere near as bad as Shadowlands has been.

I have been saying that the leadership of this team is terrible for awhile now. But, that is an issue that they must contend with, and it is their product and they are the ones responsible for the financial results that their product generates.

My god, just release her from this miserable word-prison already. She suffered enough.

Maybe they needed to do a rewrite to de-sexualize her.;)

I feel like someone went into the reunions and said “let’s see how much we can ruin her and still sell xpacs based on her.”

Don’t tempt them, you know Danuseur has a folder full of isekai slash fic where she comes to earth and marries him and Ion keeps having to kibosh it during meetings.

I’m gonna probably get destroyed for this, and I’m not even a slash fan (through I enjoy Isekai!) but, um, slash fic means something entirely different than what you seem to be talking about here. It’s exclusively m/m pairings and often ones who are not “gay” in the original mefia. Just being that person. Sorry….

I thought you meant Christie Golden for a sec there before I realized you meant Sylvanas. :D
