WoW’s Burning Crusade Classic Pre-Patch Delayed For An Authentic Retro Experience (UPDATE)

I mean, it’s probably delayed for *ACTUAL* reasons, but this is what I am telling myself – UPDATE: Further delays!

For those of us Aussies that brewed their morning coffee prior to 8am today in preparation for The Burning Crusade Pre-Patch, sad news has come in the form of a tweet:

In Aussie terms, this means the 8am expected release is now 11am. UPDATE: While no tweet has yet announced it, there has been an update to the ETA on the WoW login screen:

That new ETA is 3pm AEST. (Now confirmed via tweet)

I am no technical expert, but I can absolutely imagine the undertaking of trying to concurrently update an environment, while also maintaining two other instances of those environments …in short, something going wrong or an unforeseen contingency rearing it’s head is hardly surprising.

For most, I can imagine the reaction is now similar to the following:

Patience is a virtue

For others, they are likely just working to make good use of the extra hours of free time.

The Burning Crusade Classic releases 2 June AEST/NZST, The Pre-Patch hopefully releases at 11am AEST. Make that 3pm AEST.
