Q: What are the plans after Phase 6? More content for classic or moving to TBC?
A: We’ve done most of the hard work by bringing back 1.12 so progressing to Burning Crusade would be a lot easier for us. Our plan is to identify everything we need to do should we ever decide to go this route. We want to be sensitive to the desires of our players. Some may want BC and some may not. We’ll be following the Classic community closely to help determine what our next steps should be.

What do you guys think about this answer?

I really hope that if they go down the route of re-releasing TBC and WotLK that they do it on separate servers where you can copy your character, otherwise we'll just be in the same situation 10 years down the line where people are asking for Classic servers again!

It's also kinda funny that Classic isn't even released yet and people are asking what's coming next. LoL

There is a huge following for TBC, slightly less so for WotLK. I think this is a safe and easy option for Blizzard to make money. I hope it is a separate server, but I also hope they try to develop a separate classic+ server in the background while they release these easy cash cows. Classic+ has more potential but more risk than the expansions. I'm excited for whatever they decide. I really enjoyed TBC, and if done right I could really enjoy Classic+.

Time will tell.

I would like to get TBC and stay on it till the end of time. :biggrin: For me it is best time of wow as I do not like vanilla THAT MUCH. I also do not like WotLK. For me this is the best mixture of skill/time sink/meaningful lore/QoL features/pvp/pve time of wow. It is not perfect but for me it's as good as it can get.

I love TBC and all but yeah its easily predictable that if they do that, there'll eventually be people wanting classic again and probably going back to private servers. So the option of just expanding upon the classic world would be something i'd be more curious about, although I'm not sure that's a good idea in Blizzards hands, could potentially turn out like the shitshow that bfa is if they implement all new ideas.

I'd be down for Classic + TBC. Separate servers, same characters. Basically continue where you left off but keep your classic character in a time capsule.

As long as TBC servers don't overwrite the Classic servers we're getting now I am ok with it. It will fragment the playerbase if they go that way but I can live that.

This. Leave classic servers as a museum of vanilla wow and add a TBC servers. Later on, if its popular, there could be other servers with classic+ (but I dont think they will go that way).

I will probably like a Classic + not just TBC again.

I liked TBC but I will prefer a Classic +, some element of TBC can be good in it.
What I'm thinking is to continue the 1.XX patch without disrupting all the classic world.

  • New class / race combo, not a bad idea to add more diversisty in the long run with some story to it.(instance/raid etc...)

  • NO flying mount, but a water mount can be interesting if they maybe open more dungeon or raid in the sea ?

  • No desctruction of the classic world

  • Arena, but within the classic rank system or in symbiose with it and the faction side of it.( Can be accessible only when you reach XX rank, this mean that just the elite warrior of each faction can combat for the honor+ and bring something to the classic battleground with it ? )

  • No more leveling, level 60 is the max that's it, this way all the raid instance can still be interesting to do and farm for some good item.

  • Opening new instance and raid, to add new stuff and history to maybe bring balance for "meme" classes or just some new challenge.
  • But In the long run we will see the population of Retail VS Classic.
    What the company will decide to continue or disrupt ?...

    Exactly.
    This is what they should have done in the beginning instead of forcing players who paid for one thing, to be paying for an expansion that they didn't necessarily want or ask for to continue playing with their friends or just enjoy the gameplay.
    I've played a lot of Wotlk, and I still do. Burning crusade would be a new experience for me because I joined mid-thc.
    Keep the expansions seperate from each other I say, Copy the character progression database from classic to TBC for players that want TBC, It's simple.

    WHAT IF they recreate/re-release TBC but without a lot of the major changes. i.e Flying mounts. Imagine a Classic2 so to speak, new races, new balances. This will most likely not happen, but it's a cool idea.

    I'm all for TBC, but being able to fly is "meh".

    It will probably be TBC. Players will want things to do after all vanilla content is cleared. And it's easy money for Blizzard.

    I would definitely be down for this, however, I'm not sure the classic dev team would be up for this. A lot of the TBC world was created with flying mounts in mind. Take out flying mounts and they would have to redesign a lot of the world.
