I wonder if it'd be possible to transfer characters from the Vanilla server to future expansions as they released them. After TBC and Wrath they could even come up with new expansions using the classic systems, similar to how Oldschool Runescape expanded on the game from 2007. The Ethereal expansion fan concept that's been popular on the WoW Reddit recently would be perfect for that.
This is fine and all, and I'm very excited for Classic, but at some point I do get concerned about population fragmentation. We're no longer dividing up huge numbers like 10 million people. It's probably in the 1-2 million range, and only a small percentage of those will play these other servers full time. I guess it doesn't take *that* many to make a world populated, but fragmentation is a serious issue they'll need to consider. I almost think it might be more interesting to simply expand Classic into TBC - not a separate server but just progress through it all. I'm sure that would upset some Classic people, but really, do you want to stay 60 forever?
Excellent, it will just be for 1 or 2 servers but wotlk was the best, I'll gladly level up again. That said if it were to happen it will take a few years at least, till then it's all private...
I get Classic but why TBC and Wrath. Like why don't we just remake the game while we're at it. I think once people get their hands on Classic they are gonna realize that it wasn't what they remembered or thought it would be for those who didn't play and thats the end of that. Alot of people have selective memory and don't remember the bad as well as the good.
As a Legion fan, hope to see relaunch of this expansion in future. Even though I understand it would take many years.
Well Seprate Servers are the bad idea i wish they expand classic to different Direction and Alternative Story Because Every New Expansion We dont know what will comes like exploration Professions rares new items etc but for classic (we know everything)>>>tbc (we know everything)>>wotlk (we know everything) so most players will be get bored after they hit max level and everything they want but if they move the story to different direction then all will be exited what will be next and new zones
I would actually adore WotLK. It's my sole favorite expansion out of them all.
OMFG I cant wait for Legion and BFA legacy server, the xpac after BFA is sooooooo bad i wish to go back to bfa
When all else fails reboot your franchise? I like the idea but I would rather new content.
Well that was expected and welcome. Vanilla will be okay but it had so many flaws, BC and Wotlk are the golden middle where the game was still in its original state but had advanced features and designs (complex boss fights, advanced class mechanics, etc). And from Cata and onward it was something different...
I mean, this is great and all. I am happy that people that never got to play this content will be giving a chance to but I don't think constantly focusing on rehashing old expansions should be "ok". Based on the FORBES article with Brack, WoW Classic and Diablo are a main focus. Honestly, re-releasing a 15 year old game should be a priority when your current iteration of the game is going to @#$%.
