Smiling ? It might be japanese laughing at your test results.

1- The time frame rishab gave isn't fully accurate. He said at least a month but it's actually closer to 3 weeks
2- The "soon" word is a meme, I'm pretty sure everybody knows this but the reality is that some people just want to believe other things. For the amount of content coming in this patch, a month away is "very soon". Most other major patches had been announced to come soon and took about 3 or more months to be finished, thus saying "very soon" is consistent and gives out that players won't need to wait as long (compared to previous patch announcements)
3- We didn't kill the playerbase, if you want to compare player count pre and post announcement it's about the same. People know by now how long seasons usually last
4- While such an announcement drops the amount of donations until next season, it's still the right thing to do. It would be frustrating for a player to get TG and spend it to find out "surprise patch" will come out the next day. Additionally, it's the price you pay to get the word out and build the hype for the new season

I like your way of thinking, here have a cookie.

Will definitely wait for the patch and play my ass off as soon as it comes out.
