    I'll be playing it; I already am.

    I don't think that it will be released in late Nov. though. I just don't see VU Games releasing Half Life 2 then a week later turn around and release WoW. Possible but improbable.

    Also, we're awaiting at least one more patch before open beta as we still need to test Paladin and Hunter talent lines.

    My guess is patch next week; open beta a week after it's release; and probably a retail launch at least in Jan. '05.

    I will be playing it! AoW, I'm gonna be a NE Druid nd my friend will be a NE Hunter. Maybe we can group some time. Well, at the local EB Games it's supposedly out on Nov. 3.

    I'll be playing once the full version is out, hopefully before Christmas, but I can wait. (Just) :D

    open beta will most likely be out before Paladin talent lines are released and Hunter lines are tested. Paladin's really need the most work.

    Open beta will most likely open this week, for registration at least. it was supposed to open last week, but you know blizzard and sticking to schedules.

    as for a jan. release date, highly unlikely as Blizzard has quoted all retail stores on a Nov. 15th release date. local stores already have boxes containing the pre-order books. remember this game is a constant work in progress and will change drastically from retail, so blizzard can release it unfinished, i know i'll pay.

    Maybe. I've never played role playing games like that, but I love the warcraft universe so much that I might try it. The monthly fee is a real turn off though. I'd so much rather pay more up front and then not have to worry about a charge every month.

    Just a little FYI... Half Life 2 ships on Nov. 15th. There is no way VU, who publishes both games, is going to nerf sales by releasing both titles on the same day. It's like releasing two top movies on the same weekend; it's just not smart business.

    The game is NOT ready at this point. Maybe there is an internal build that is GM ready and already being duplicated because that would need to occur in order to get REAL boxes on the shelf by Nov. 15th. Again, not happening.

    The pre-order boxes have been around since Sept with the free novels; nothing new there. Sorry to disappoint everyone but they really aren't ready. Heck, the servers have been acting up the last two weeks so this is probably the cause for the open beta delay.

    Even though the world of MMOs always change they must release a stable retail build in order to generate the most valuable assest required for a successful MMO: monthly subscribers.
