Can we get some reasoning behind this delay?

6.2 is all about storming Tanaan, the stronghold of the Iron Horde.

Why am I going to go to the Iron Docks in 6.2, which is after we have crushed Blackhand and shut down the Blackrock Foundry?

Also, why was this stealth tweeted from Bashiok and not @warcraftdevs?
LOL

Content wasn't ready. Simple as that.

I bought an expansion expecting content. Simple as that.
I like to think that this expac is so unsuccessful because Blizz sees it as just a placeholder for the next one that's getting most of their resources.
Where was the iron docks questing mentioned? Just curious.

Content is in a really weird place atm, we have raiders who really don't want or need anymore raid content, they seem to be pushing themselves into a corner of rushing out 6.2 and making exactly the same mistake they did in 5.2 in cutting a raid tier too short for most raiding guilds.

Everything it said on the box was in the box.

I find myself wanting more than we currently have as well, but if you expect more than what you paid for and only got what you paid for, you really have no one to be disappointed in but yourself.

Is that 100% confirmed or just an assumption?

Was in an interview I believe.

Lol @ the downvotes. Here's the interview...

Not surprising.

If you could find the interview, I'd be eternally grateful.

Edit: thank you

It'll Cost You a Raid Tier
Serves you right.
You talked to Bashiok.
unlike previous patches, 6.1 seems to have no title

6.1 seems to have no lore-related cinematic

6.1 barely adds any substantive game content

6.1 only adds a few upgrades or changes to existing features

WoD is the worst xpac for content, hands down.

Posting selfies on twitter and a BOA tab that was due at xpac launch is not content.

Blizzcon 2015 is near the end of this year. They would likely announce the next xpac at that point.

Wait time from that announcement until next xpac? Who knows.

WoD will be the longest-run xpac with only 3 patches (6.0.2, 6.1 and 6.2) over a span of 1 1/2 to 2 years.

We thought SoO ran too long...
The sooner this expansion is over the better. I used to think Cataclysm was the worst expansion. Now I'm seriously reevaluating that.

At least Cataclysm had a bunch of raids, dungeons, etc. This xpac is a complete joke.

Better graphics is about all that's good about it.
