Which was only 243days before it finally got the prepatch for MoP. Historically. So rather than patches being "slow" to allow for more/earlier work on the expansion, patches could be "slow" because all hands are on deck trying to force out content, they're running behind schedule, and therefore likely are BEHIND on 9.0. Meaning a November release would line up with historical patch duration for a final patch. Add covenant abilities (one for choosing this covenant, one for your class). Would they release alpha AND the new raid in the same month..? Long Expansion (780 Days - MoP ) = 10/1/2020, Short Expansion (657 Days - WoD ) = 5/31/2020, Average Expansion (717 Days ) = 7/30/2020.

Feel free to correct me if I made mistakes and to discuss my opinion on this expansions duration.

I would really prefer that it was released in November if it meant a better experience. Did you guys see the female blood elves xD Oh my god, someone at blizzard really hates female blood elves, and both of the human genders. But I doubt that.
