That's been a common reaction, but it's not like the different regions share servers, so I don't get it.

Blizz has a long and not quite so glorious history of xpac launches, and now they’re choosing to deliberately up the degree of difficulty?

I devoutly hope to be wrong, but my money is on Pira being closer to the pin here.

I suspect a lot of the reaction comes from people that don't necessarily understand that, sure.

I'm thinking more about the tidal crush of people that are going to be hitting the servers at 3-6PM as opposed to the normal sort of "soft" launch that comes with unlocking at midnight. I'm sure there's also some potential support nightmares from all the regions launching simultaneously rather than in phased approaches--so something that might have been discovered in Region 1 and subsequently had a fix worked on before it hits much later regions or whatever, but, yeah, a 6PM crowd trying to bulldoze into expansion is gonna be a bad time, i think.

a simultaneous launch in all regions.

There's absolutely no way this goes poorly.

BfA will launch at 6pm Eastern on August 13, six hours in advance of the official launch day in that time zone, so that there can be a simultaneous launch in all regions.

(The map graphic says at the bottom that August 13 is a Tuesday, but it is actually a Monday, as noted by many people.)

I really like the third one. I hope more of BfA focuses on those stories. The first two were more "meh". I am completely annoyed by Magni Earthspeaker.

Blizzard has released three comics telling stories related to BfA, all on the topic of troubled families.  The first two are pretty short, and tell us a bit about what Jaina and Magni have been up to.  The third one is longer and depicts a meeting of the three Windrunner sisters.

Like, warlock green fire went away at some point and you couldn't do that anymore.
Green fire is still obtainable - just the title that came with it is no longer obtainable.
