Three months

Warlords will go live in three months.

This information is so important that its communication demands a medium of its very own. I know I’ve been planning my “finding out the Warlords release date” blog since before Mists came out.

So three months is about 90 days, or three subscription periods, or another $45 for the same game you’ve been playing for the last year.

The months in question are September, October, half of August and just under half of November. September, October and November are named such because they began as the seventh, eighth, and ninth months respectively. According to Wikipedia; August was at one point called Sextili– I have no idea why they changed it. In the Southern Hemisphere, August is the seasonal equivalent of February in the Northern Hemisphere.

Thirty days hath September and November, but October is going to be a slightly longer month than usual due to its thirty-first day. It’s still unclear whether this extra day was intended by the devs.

I haven’t watched the cinematic advertisement yet. I assume it will be pretty but pointless.

One thought on “Three months

  1. Julius Caesar and Caesar Augustus were the guys who decided to rename the months of Quintilis and Sextilis in their own honour.

    And don't bother with the cinematic trailer. Here's the summary (to the tune of Monty Python's “Spam”):
    Orcs, orcs, orcs, orcs,
    Orcs, orcs, orcs, orcs,
    Lovely orcs, wonderful orcs!
    Lovely orcs, wonderful orcs!

    A final point. The release date is 13 November 2014. That's a Thursday. Not normally a server restart day.
