Most of us didn't receive the survey but found out about it from a friend or guildie. I'm curious as to which way people are leaning thus far.

Personally, I do not want the existing Classic servers to progress to TBC servers. They should remain as is, and we should be given the option to transfer or copy our Classic characters if it goes in that direction. However, this may be an unpopular opinion but I think everyone should have to start TBC level 1, just as if you were leveling in a new Blizzlike private server.

Well, I'd like to be able to copy my characters. I'd like to keep it on the same server in WoW Classic and then be able to copy it to a TBC server.

I voted none of the above. I want an option to copy my characters to a TBC realm, and I want my current server to remain Classic. I want to continue copies of my characters going forward on new TBC servers.

Fresh level 1, those first few weeks of a new realm are always amazing

Agree with this - plenty of people will want to do the Draenei and Blood Elf starter zones again too. Although I predict that those who do will drop their starter toon in favour of a level 60 transfer when faced with the grind again Smile

I don't think they will do copying so I chose the next best: continue playing while server progresses to TBC. Transferring to a TBC server is fine to me as well, comes down to more or less the same thing IMO. I really, REALLY don't want to have to start at level 1 again. If they do it anything like original TBC they will push the 2.0 prepatch around 2 months before the actual release so those wanting to reroll Paladin or Shaman will have those 2 months to do so. The whole point of playing an RPG is character progression. When TBC comes around I don't want to lose my character! It has all the cool outfits I've kept during my journey thus far, the professions, mounts. That would all be lost with being forced to level from 1 again (or 58).
Screw fresh servers honestly, had way too much of that shit in the private server scene already. I rolled on Classic because I was led to believe my character would not be ditched with the release of a new FRESH meme.

Out of the options (I know there's a None option that I can make up my own), I like the idea of logging in and going to the dark portal to start my journey in Outlands. I chose #1 I guess, the server I am on turns into TBC and I have the option to transfer back to a Classic server if I like to stay in vanilla version. Figured most people will continue the journey so vanilla classic servers will have a decrease in population. Would make sense to have the Vanilla people jump to servers to make them feel more populated by only having a few up compared to what they have now...either way option #1 or #2 either TBC or Vanilla will break up there community a bit if they don't communicate where they are going.

I think starting at level 1 is the worst for me. I took a long time getting to 60 so going from 1-70 will take forever compared to 60-70, plus I already did the 1-60. I rather not do it again unless its a new character. Kinda attached to the guy I have been playing in Classic now. It will feel more epic to me to take him to outlands and continue the journey! That's how it was in 2007 so I like that option best! Instead of a new level 58 guy with nothing but grey gear and couple runecloth or a level 1 mutation of my beloved Nyxt!

To be honest, I don't care what Blizzard decides, as long as TBC gets re-released, I am all in on TBC! And if they pick the worst option so be it. But if they repeat it for Wrath I will not do Wrath...no love for wrath. Nothing against wrath but vanilla and tbc are my babies!

Wow thats exactly how i feel, damn maybe your my alter ego account and i dont know it yet!

Yeah i came to classic cause I had bad experiences with private servers with loss of progression, loss of character or just plain server gone forever. Coming to Classic I expected that my character would live on forever and i would never loose my progression and stuff. I have put alot of work into Nyxt! My full time job is not WoW, if it was maybe I would feel differently.

Starting from lvl 1? I honestly hate this idea. We have current vanilla classic to lvl up toons, if TBC drops I personally sure as hell don't want to be forced to re-do the content I was doing in the past year(s), depending when TBC drops, just so I can get to new content (yes, even with the nerfs vanilla areas received).

I'm also pretty sure most people would feel the same way, I don't see this happening. Imo it'll either be copy your toon to a TBC realm or the other way around, copy it to a permanent vanilla realm as current ones progress to TBC.

I don't see why they couldn't offer some TBC realms where players cannot have existing toons and everyone starts from level 1 in addition to a copy/transfer option.

I voted option A but what I actually want is to copy my existing characters to a new TBC realm, and my current realm stays a classic realm.

Honestly,
I think it should be like the release back in the day. Option 1 is closest to that progress what you have. If you don't want to, transfer to a classic realm.

Exactly this option is what I miss. This would be grand.

I voted option A but option D also appeals to me...albeit for reasons not super relevant to TBC. I love fresh servers where everyone starts over. The game is so fun then and everyone is all levelling and working together to make it to 60 or whatever cap is.

I don't think it's the best option for a TBC launch as making people re-do vanilla content seems harsh. However, part of me hopes that Blizzard do at least do fresh servers as time goes on kind of like how Everquest does with fresh servers for people who want to start fresh all over again back at phase 1. It would be great for people who missed the original classic launch as well.

Id like option 1 and 2, and voted for 1 as it will be easier long term and for guild coherence.

Options 3 is already pretty bad, because people will just pick metaclasses and you will loose alot of cool stuff and money. In addition it kills the TBC thing with "new shamans / paladins need to start lvl1" which is important in my opinion, so players can learn to play these Razz

Option 4 is the best way for them to lose my subs, I want to keep my achievements.

That said, at least in my guild most voted option 1 or 3 with the majority on 3 :confused: I hope its not what we get...
