I only see those ads maybe 1/200 times of starting the launcher.Normally just says "Something went wrong"
I' am 98% sure prepatch and release dates are correct. And this is why:1) they do these date "Leaks" due to marketing reasons. too keep people hyped2) Cause microtransactions they keep date secret as long as they can because: a) People won't farm gold and other grinding items as much as they would do with knowing real dates. b) the most important thing is Level boost. they can say " yea prepatch was 46 days. now it's 2 weeks cause everyone knows how to play + we tested everything" yea sure... tbc average player is in his 30s so they don't have as much time as they used to it + now they have money + they feel nostalgic to tbc. but real reason is less time they give us more level boosts people will buy.3) all PTR is mostly done. they almost tested every aspect of the phase 1. now they have a lot of time to fix bugs until June 1st.
It's June for sure. They even said so to investors: https://clips.twitch.tv/SassyArbitraryPrariedogPRChase-YvRkgGglfcBBh2YT
