So we know the game mode is working. There might be some glitches, but what doesn't have glitches? But a company saying a blanket statement of when something will come out is not enough for today's consumer. We like solid dates. I'd be much happier if the game mode came out when they said with glitches than if it didn't come out until a good bit later than intended and perfect (Which perfection is impossible to achieve).
I love me some LoL, but when a company says soon or late August I expect soon or late August, not mid September. Blizzard lost a lot of respect when SC2 went from 2 years later to 12 years later. It's bad business.
A) they never said August. PAX ended what, August 28? it was NEVER going to be released in August.
B) they said "definitely not" 1 week after PAX, and "no comment" to 2 weeks after PAX. so that means 2 weeks at best, 3-4 weeks probably.
C) 2 weeks after August 28 is September 11. AT BEST, they will have it out then. and even then, that's extremely doubtful. Personally, I'm betting on either the 13th or the 20th.
D)the 7th of September is not mid September.
