I was rather skeptical when Jay tweeted that it was coming very soon. Blizzard has a long-established company policy of not promising ANYTHING on ANY timescale until they know with 99.9% certainty that they will meet whatever time they state publicly. This isn't the first time Jay has apparently disregarded this.
isn't this pretty standard procedure, especially from jay wilson? -.-
what "complications" can stop a blog?
Imagine your family tells you you're having a delicious roast for dinner some time this month, now lets say that the roast was scheduled to be eaten this week. Your siblings/father/mother/whole family say they cannot make it to dinner tonight so therefore the roast has been pushed back to a night later in the week and instead of having some gravy with the roast you're going to have some applesauce because your father doesn't like gravy (and what he don't like aint welcome!) Now because of this change in topping for your roast you have decided to add or remove certain side-dishes to the roast, adding or removing some vegetables to suit the applesauce. Because of this change it has also pushed back the night of the roast because you don't have the ingredients to suit the applesauce (and it just wont be right to have the wrong vegies with applesauce!!)
Now translate what I said into development talk. Things can go wrong in the production. They don't want to put out information that isn't actually correct! I can imagine that they don't want to release the blog or information on the blogs release when they feel that certain things need a bit more tweaking and adjusting.
That being said, hurry up blizz!

Bashiok - Blizzard Representative - 08/01/2011 -"So how many skill combinations are there now? Well taking into account 6 active skills, all the rune combinations, and 3 passives we currently expect each class to have roughly 2,285,814,795,264 different build combinations."

It's too bad he doesn't read this. But Blizzard, you need to replace Jay. He's toxic for your company, and literally does one thing. Dissapoint us all with his 'news'. PvP was at least playable before release. (Blizzcon) There's no excuse to have kept us waiting this long. I've invested $60 dollars into promises that aren't met until after I've lost so much interest in the game that I stop checking.l
