Are these seriously not being released until 4.3?
The Throne of the Tides expansion set releases tomorrow, Tuesday the 11th. Both players of the TCG and players of the MMO cracking packs for singles and/or loot hunting will be popping these out of boxes and attempting to redeem them almost immediately. 4.3 is probably weeks away... do you guys have any idea how bad for business this is? How do you explain to a customer that's just bought a pack "Hey, nice job cracking your loot card! But, uhh... you can't use it for a few weeks, (months?) sorry."
It takes absolutely no beta testing to confirm a loot card is ready. It's probably some of the simplest updates possible. The TCG deserves more respect and consideration than what it's currently being given, and the time and effort to release something that would implement the pets for this set is not something anyone would complain over. In fact, it would not only save people yelling in the forums about "Why my pet isn't available yet!?" but it would save ENDLESS complaints for both store front owners trying to support this game, and online/ebay merchants involved in this game, as to why the product they're buying doesn't even work yet.
Seems like a mighty simple fix over a very big issue. And while some of you might not consider it as such... let me assure you, if you're involved in this TCG and/or the market, it is. It really, really is.
