Patch 2.4 this week
Via WoWInsider comes the confirmation that patch 2.4 will arrive today on the US servers, and tomorrow on the European servers. I'm certainly going to discuss what I like and dislike about the patch in the coming days. But here I am just going to state something very fundamental: This patch is very essential to World of Warcraft for the simple reason that it adds more content. A lot of people suffer from WoW burnout, and have either already quit or aren't playing all that enthusiastically any more. The Burning Crusade has barely enough content to last the average player one year, but certainly not enough for nearly two, if we assume that Wrath of the Lich King won't be out before Q4 2008. Patch 2.4 is not so much patching the game but more patching the gap between TBC and WotLK. And that is a very good thing.
