WoW – Siege of Ogrimaar for 8 more months!

Patch 5.4 which contained Siege of Orgrimmar was initially released September 9th, 2013. With the announcement of Pre-Orders and the more likely potential of a Fall release over the hoped summer or spring release of Warlords of Draenor, it looks like we could be looking at 12 months (September 2014) or more of SoO. Members at blizzard have said they were unhappy with over 12 months spent on the last tier of raiding (look back to Icecrown Citadel which lasted almost exactly 12 months (Dec. 8th 2009 – Dec. 7th 2010[release of cataclysm]). Ruby Sanctum, a very minor content patch, was released on June 22nd, 2010.

My question is, are we going to see another 12 month period (or more) with no major content? What is going to keep players sub’ing for the next 6 months if nothing new is happening in game?

You can try and use the argument ‘well only 10% of the population actually raids so that 90% should just go raid!’, but that is invalid partially because it is based off of old numbers and what if that 90% genuinely doesn’t enjoy raiding? If there is literally nothing changing in the world, what are they going to do? What are pvp’ers going to do? Just enjoy yet another pvp season with the same gear (if you don’t know they just swapped colors on pvp gear for this current season and raised the ilevel), same arenas, same bg’s?

Sounds like this is gonna suck. lol
