The delay of announcement has no effect on the expansion schedule, and we are still sticking to our commitment of launching it this year.
Once, on April Fool's day, my wife intimated that she was interested in a certain activity.
She made innuendos about it all day.
Right before, she said "April Fool's, I'm not really in the mood."

BioWare - we DO NOT CARE about whatever subscriber perk you're trying to put together. I promise. I bet if you polled the entire subscriber base, and asked them whether they would like you to stick to your original idea of telling us about the expansion tomorrow, or if they would rather wait a few weeks to find out about the mount (that no one will use because we're all special snowflakes,) useless in-game item, and four days of early access we'll get - I'd be willing to bet on 100% unanymity for the former.

Soon™ was lame back when Blizzard came up with it, but continuing using it after all but promising new information (by tomorrow) is even more so.

It's sad, because something longer than the "teaser" we received would probably make many of us happy until a larger announcement. As of right now, there doesn't appear to be anything at all to look forward to (ok, Dragon Age is out soonish so I guess there's that), and that's supremely disappointing.

I'd be happy and/or surprised if the "Something really nice" was a BUG FREE Release...

Yea.. I had a laugh as I typed that as well.

I agree with a great many here: Don't show up at the last minute and tell everyone "Wait 2+ more weeks" we have something nice to give you as well. It's really annoying and the last time you delayed something for "QA and other reasons" we got shafted.

LONGER is not really better when it comes to MMO's... you guys need to suck it up and stick to dates you promise.

+1 on INFO now, goodies later.... cause if the INFO is so crappy we need a gift to make it suck less then it's not really a whole lot of anything worth mentioning.

I respect your love for secrecy, but please give us at least a date for the offical and full release. As you stated, this date should already be set, so why not tell us? At this point it might be anything between November and late December. People might want to take off or have to decide when they might want to renew their subscription, so holding vital information back does not seem the wisest choice to me, from an economic standpoint. Anyway, I think you guys over at Bioware underestimate how much this bureaucratic kind of secrecy hurts the community and the overall success of the game. It might not show in Cartel Market sales, but we already had no information about the expansion for half a year and this does sound like a good thing for the future of the game. After everything that got delayed this summer and everyhting you keep us in the dark about... I believe a change of policy is needed.
