Cata + Pearl Harbor coincidence?

Postby Shyrtandros » Tue Dec 07, 2010 9:54 am

As the title suggests... Many people have already made the connection but tons of people just haven't noticed or deny the possibilities.

Today (launch day) is of course Pearl Harbor Day!

There are some people that believe that Cata was planned to launch on this day for the symbolism of "Goblin island being attacked from the air, ships being sunk and thousands of them dying".

Several others (Including alot of blizzard peepz) say that it's just purely coincedence... they have done tuesday releases before and theres no real connection.

Thoughts?

Everything is a fucking conspiracy.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

Yes, Blizzard planned this on purpose. Obviously.

Child Bearing Hips. It is a standard trope here as the search function will reveal in all its hideousness.

It was planned as much as 12/7 was the earliest tuesday that they could push it out on correctly.

I don't believe for one second that they tried to make a connection between the attacks on Pearl Harbor and video game green skin goblins being massacred.

Cataclysm was originally scheduled for a November release...

*dons tinfoil hat*

...and so was the attack on Pearl Harbor! They had to delay it because the beta version of Japanese forces had too many bugs and unfinished features.
