Why not? Just merge patch 2.3 and 2.4 and have a 16 week break.

We know PvP and PvE is created by two separated teams, so there should be enough time to finish 2.4 until august. Then the PvP Players will be happy again (depending on the PvP content ;-) ).

I'm no PvP Player and I can count with my two hands how many raids i've done. But I like this game and I know that this game will only be a success if there are enough players who p(l)ay. I can understand that the PvP players are frustrated because the last PvP patch was in dezember.

So just merge these two patches and tell the community that there will be a 16 week break instead of a 8 week break before the next patch comes and we will understand it. Only a few people - the ones who will always complain - will complain.

What do you think? I think that there is much content that could be released in the next time but to hold the 8 week cycle that content is hold back. That's also why I think it is possible to finish the PvP content until august

Sure, they could do that.. and then they would have everyone cry and throw screaming hissys that there was no new content for 16 weeks when they said there would be new content every 8.

This might be a silly question, but could they bump up the PVP content to the front of the que to get it out first?

#1: Do you honestly think, that it is technically possible to fulfil your wish ? Do you believe, that those guys at Austin are just sitting around waiting for patch day, having the code all done anyway ?
#2: The vocal minority of paid complainers will be the start, but then everyone and their cat will start threads asking "Bioware, youz R teh failz! Y U NO bring patsch???111"

More like finish 3.3.
You realize how far in advance MMOs are in relation to what actually goes live, right?

I doubt if they are deliberately holding back PvP content. I am sure it is not done or tested - they have no reason to withhold it.

I am sure people would give them a pass if they said "Hey all - we have patch 2.4 ready so we are going to deploy it immediately. This means there might not be one in August"

That would only be 3 new WZ maps and maybe 5 OPs. Doesn't sound that hard. Go for it.

Not a chance. I would bet money that if they released 2.4 early people would be posting rage and unsubbing topics in august about there being no update
