Yeah, came up in the other thread.
I think the analogy to PvP is not correct.
Yes, it might get even further delayed, but two things should be considered:
1) As has been said in the bluepost, although the general mechanic of NT has been delayed, some of the encounters still are included in RoS.
2) PvP wasn't included because they need to get PvE right at first, and balancing that is already quite hard. Balancing the game around PvE and PvP at the same time is like open heart surgery. I'd rather them get one thing perfectly right than two things kinda "meh".
I personally think the expansion has already loads of interesting new content and this is not something that'll make me go "OH NOEZ, I'M NOT GONNA BUY ROS NOW". It would've been a nice addition, but it could've easily put me into choice paralysis (Nephalem Trials? Nephalem Rifts? Bounties? Story Mode? What the hell should I do now?)
I generally agree with all of this, and I'm not really all that bothered by it being delayed. It's a little annoying, but it is what it is. I just wasn't sure if it had come up anywhere else on the forums yet, that's all. I'm sure some people will see this as reason #847 that Blizzard sucks and RoS will be a waste of money, but honestly I don't know why those people still visit fansites.
