Because people know Blizz can take their time and release a game that had most content people expect. I would not say BW as proven this IMO, so people want it ASAP to have access to the content they expected in release.

1.2 is a huge step forwards in a game that's still in it's infancy, to suggest that they've held 1.2 back to string people along and get them to re-sub is just tin-foil hat talk.
/agree

Lol. D3 is going to be garbage, thats why they give it for practically free if you do the annual sub for WoW.

Most MMOs have several patches worth of additional content in the pipeline prior to launch. That's not what's taking so long.

This is also a major class-balancing patch. This is what's causing the delay. It's much better to get this done right the first time than spend another two months patching weekly trying to get the classes in line.

They are releasing Diablo 3 without PvP to get it out there early (but still late). I think they're shooting themselves in the foot.

Actually, it's the other way around. That promotion was added right as the game hit it's pre-expansion dead zone. We won't see new content in WoW until November. People are goign to get restless because Dragon Soul isn't good enough to hold people's interest for a full year. As a result, they came up with this promotion to discourage us from cancelling our subs during the dead period.

It worked amazingly well.

What's amazing is they developed WoW in less time than it's taking for D3 to come out.

my account expires march 30

if 1.2 isn't out by then, i'll have no reason to renew and i won't be looking back. i'm not going to pay for another month to see if 1.2 is worth my time or not.

it's too bad; it seems they have the cycles and resources to support the game, they just pick the wrong stuff to tinker with.

instead of adding content they should have been fixing the glaring bugs and massive class imbalances.

i was in a warzone last night with 7 inquisitors and 6 consulars.

this game is beyond saving at this point.

Lol, tin foil hat talk.....so true. There certainly aren't a lack of conspiricy theorists in these forums where Bioware has some sinister purpose behind everything they do, or don't do.
