It's coming Smile i can feel it bounce

They announced that therer will be a full hardware upgrade of all the servers in the end of the month. They don't talk about TBC, but, we can safely assume that it is the first step towards TBC upgrade.

i check the official websites carefuly.

Absolutely no dates have been announced yet.

This annoucement is official but it is only for hardware upgrade. They say that all the hardware is ready and they will update it starting the end of this month. No mention about TBC, but, i personally think that the TBC upgrade will come soon after.

Now lets hope the hardware uopgrade will go smoothly Smile

I guess they are taking extra care to prevent any data loss (accounts)... And i prefer they do so LOL.

it'll probably take longer in china to upgrade to full TBC since they may have more on their hands than just technical upgrades, they have to think of distrubution, marketing etc. we'll probably have to buy a new cdkey for the upgrade.

I'm pretty sure those terms are already decided between the9 and blizzard. I know the major problem that caused this late realese is that they had problems fiding a financial agreement for TBC and that they had 1 year conflict before they finally signed an agreement (december 2006).

TBC WILL COME OUT THE FIRST OF JUNE IT HAS BEEN SAID BY A GM ON MY SERVER.

First they have upgraded page 4 and 6 now 1 and 2 and than 3 and 5 they have done that to increase the capacity of number of players playing at the same time after page 3 and 5 out there will say the date OFFICIALY which is planned to be the first of june but they dont say it yet cos they are not 100% sure. When the 6 pages upgraded there will just have to press on a buttom and there will go the PALADINS to be the first DPS machine and at the same time have plate so not die in one shot and if low health you can heal!!!!

I would hate to be anither class

I read tons of posts like this in many forums and some of it was announcing TBC for months before now Smile I think it is safer to wait and see when they will announce a date officially. 1st of june is a possibility... But i'm not sure.

Paladins were not, and will never be #1 DPS machines.
They are g*y "wannabe" Warriors without balls, who bubble everytime their HP gets below 50% and heal.
oh, and yes, they dont get one shotted, but 2 shotted by a rogue/mage combo of the worst human quality. they give you a hard time at first, but when you know at which point they bubble, you have them dead sure.
they all seem to be running mods for HP warning or have some routine. each pally bubbles at more or less always the same HP. not all pallies at the same HP level, but each one always at the same level for himself.
i saw few exceptions. the when my silence kicks in.

another funny way for a pally:
SHEEP -> rogue hits, gets one combo point
re-SHEEP -> rogue hits, gets second combo point
re-SHEEP -> rogue hits, gets third combo point
re-SHEEP -> rogue hits, gets fourth combo point
re-SHEEP -> rogue hits, gets fifth combo point
re-SHEEP -> rogue goes Coldblood, mage pops ....nothing in my case, just some crit stuff...

And here we go with a mage + Rogue , both of them probably critting (one for sure), hurting a pally REEEEEEEEEEALLY bad, re-stunlocking him directly afterwards, silence, die. (if he lived through 2 crits, of course.)

I'm way past even trying to speculate now. We'll get it when we get it I guess. All the more time for me to level my horde characters Smile

HAHA first of all you are thinking of a 2 vs 1 fight which a paladin would still win however in a 2vs 2 fight with 2 pallys vs 1 mage and a rogue you would get owned SO BAD we will both fisrt go on the mage no need to try sheeping us cos the other paladin would just cleanse dont try to sap us cos we would ether shield or use are BG trinkets, we would use are blessing of freedom which mean you wont be able to slow us we would just stun you(dont try to blink cos we have 2 stuns each) and like you wear cloth you would go down in 5 sec than we would just heal go full hp than kill your crapy rogue. Just for info on the EU server the best 2vs2 team is a paladin and a paldin the best 3vs3 is a paladin a paladin and a paladin and the best 5vs5 is a paldin a paldin paladin a paladin and a paldin

And another import info is that paladin in TBC are #1 in dps if specced in DPS the best in heal if speacced heal and the #2 best tank if specced tank but the #1 offtank cos paldins are way more proteced than warriors however than cannot keep aggro

I never played a paladin and never will, however the way naklin put it just doesn't make much sense, how can you sheep and re-sheep more than 3 times without diminishing returns kick in which making the paladin immune to sheep or any crowd control?

Also although I haven't played a paladin I've read up on message board and yes dilou is right, paladins are VERY strong in team battles, specifically the arena 2v2 or 3v3 fights.

Trow in a paladin in any team and it seem like you got yourself an uninterruptable, bubbleable, plate wearing, two hand weilding healer for your team.

Although the paladin doesn't have any augmented attacks (aura asaid) for his attacks, that is: he mostly just auto attack, do not underestimate the power of auto attack. I can't tell you how many times my druid was out of mana to swift and cast only to crit for 600 white with my mace, it doesn't seem like much but it was enough to kill most of the targets with their HP that I already grind down with cat and bear forms.

now tell me that's not advantage.

I think it's impossible to determine the outcome of a fight like this. Some players are just damn good at PvP, while others (like me) aren't that good.
