Summer is almost here & we are all getting excited about Classic, but when will Blizzard announce?
I think they will probably do it at E3 on June 11th. That would be the most likely scenario. That said: I don’t want them to push the game at all if they are not ready.
I would rather wait until the end of summer to get the best version possible. I want everything to be right & not rushed.
I agree with this, and while people are speculating a May 8.2 release, I don't believe the 8.2 content has hit the PTR yet, and if that is the case It would leave less than 50 days of testing for a supposedly large content patch assuming it comes out on the PTR this week. Also keep in mind Final Fantasy 14 is releasing an expansion in July and I would be surprised if Blizz doesn't have something lined up to compete.

I hope not, since there's speculation that 8.2 won't be out until late June/early July. That's WAY too late for a beta test to start if they're sticking to the "Summer" window.
I think as soon as they announce the server list, it will give us a pretty good indication as to how far out it will be. I'm praying for June, hoping for July, worried it will be August. As a school teacher, August will really put a damper on my leveling progression.
