So... Is there no way for me to pre-order a COLLECTOR'S edition from somewhere? Because having to hunt one down on/after release day doesn't sound like fun.


Thank you!

Can't wait for this pile of poo of an expansion is put to bed.

Comes out two days after i start college. I'm sad :( no race to realm first
Is the collector's edition going to be available for preorder on Gamestop.com? I see it on Amazon, but apparently they don't do release day delivery. I preordered the Cataclysm collector's edition from Gamestop and got it delivered on release day. Currently I only see the standard edition available on Gamestop.
Hmmm it comes out pretty close to my fall break I like this. I like this a lot.
Really? You're launching it on Yom kippur?
It's my bday too!
They could put it the week before. Oh, but that puts the pre-launch event right on top of Rosh Hashanah!They could move it the week before that. Oh, but now we're on 9/11. Can't do that.Move it the week before that, but then the pre-launch event sits on labor day. Family BBQs will be ruined.They have to release it some time, and they just can't accommodate everyone.

I mean rosh hashannah isn't a very holy day honestly plus that's just the pre launch event and although people enjoy it it isn't as big as the launch. What about a week after? Could they seriously not have put it then when there isn't anything? The problem is they can they just don't care enough about a minority group to mind them. If this launched on christmas flame war about. Yom kippur? Lol get over it who cares? I'm not even jewish but it matters guy.

The day before, actually. Do you have an alternative?

Cant wait! :)
I wonder how much crow everyone who said it wouldn't be out until after Thanksgiving have eaten so far?

Roughly 8 years of WoW history told us it would be out mid-Aug to mid-Oct.

Can't do it then. It would be insensitive:

2nd October, 1968: More than 25 people have been killed during a vicious gun battle in Mexico where Student riots threaten Mexico Olympics. Thousands of students had gathered to protest against the military occupation of the National Polytechnic Institute.

2nd October, 1976: Hurricane Liza strikes at La Paz, Mexico leaving many hundreds dead and many thousand homeless as the hurricane breached the Cajoncito River

2nd October, 1985: In London and Liverpool gangs of black youths are continuing to fight with local police forces and rioting in areas where racial tension is at it's worst. The youths are making gasoline bombs which they are then using to firebomb shops in these areas.

2nd October, 1985: The actor Rock Hudson died in his sleep

2nd October, 2002: The first victim of the sniper attacks in the Washington, D.C. area, is shot and killed in a grocery store parking lot.

2nd October, 2006 : Charles Carl Roberts enters a one room Amish West Nickel Miles School, takes a number of hostages and kills four girls before committing suicide
One day before my birthday. Nice.

Sweet, at least 1 month till the release gets delayed :3

They don't do that.
As many have already asked.....

Will Blizz be -

A) Authorizing internet retailers (ie; Amazon) to ship with Release Day Delivery (or release Day -1, which is obviously preferred, for obvious reasons)
B) Allowing those who ordered a true CE the ability to download prior to launch and use a code to access, for the 24-48 hours until they get their physical copy
C) or Some other method to not screw over those that want a full CE and only option includes Shipping. Getting a UPS delivery at 7pm at night on launch day just doesn't cut it, (ie; please authorize retaielrs to ship and have Release Day -1 arrival, since we could at least be able to play at true launch like those that use DDE)
Pacific time launch.

You guys aren't getting any ahead time unless you consider it being like 3 am and have half a shot at a few hours of sleep ahead of time.

Me? Install. Go to bed. I can't stand to try to play right at the launch. Laggy.

They actually get an advantage because it generally starts being sold at 12:00am local time.

That means they can get MoP and get home and have it installed before it goes live.

Here on the West coast, it starts being sold at the same time the servers go live.
