WoW Classic - Burning Crusade Official Blizzard Survey
Yesterday, players on Reddit began reporting that they received an official survey from Blizzard asking questions about a hypothetical Burning Crusade Classic Server. The questions asked are listed below. Thanks to soramac on the classicwow subreddit for the photo!

  • How interested are you in a "Classic" version of Burning Crusade?
  • Thinking about the potential ways a player could start a character in "Classic" Burning Crusade, which of the following would you prefer most?
    • Continue playing my current Classic character on my existing server as it progresses to the Burning Crusade expansion, with the option to transfer to a Classic server that will never progress past level 60.
    • Continue playing my current Classic character on my existing server that will never progress past 60, with the option to transfer to a Burning Crusade server.
    • Start a brand new character from Level 58 on a new Burning Crusade server.
    • Start a brand new character from Level 1 on a new Burning Crusade server.
    • None of the above

March 27, 2020 will be my final day as Diablo Community Manager, and at Blizzard Entertainment. I’m not leaving for any ill reasons; my team here has always been understanding and kind, every developer I’ve had the honor of interacting with has been delightfully passionate, and the decision to leave was ultimately mine alone. I have an opportunity to explore a new and very different adventure, and if you’re curious about that, I’ll share more about it on my personal channels. Sometimes, opportunity presents itself and you just gotta roll the dice.

What I want to focus on is expressing my gratitude to this community. For welcoming me when I stumbled in at the announcement of Reaper of Souls. For making me feel at home as I was trembling on livestream, fighting stage fright while introducing the expansion to the world. For all the smiles, high-fives, hugs, and selfies at conventions (especially BlizzCon). For the absolute conviction and passion for Sanctuary that I see in every player’s post, whether it’s excitement over the latest Season or constructive criticism for your favorite class. Regardless of highs and lows, this is one of the best communities out there, and the heart of it is warm, caring, and filled with people who just want more Diablo.

Thank you for permitting me to be a part of your community. Thank you for reading my weird blogs and tolerating my terrible puns and memes. And thank you for staying awhile to listen. I’ve had an incredible opportunity learn and grow as person that I’ll carry with me the rest of my life, and I can’t wait to delve the depths of the Burning Hells and face down the mother of Sanctuary alongside the rest of you.

Lastly, rest assured that the Diablo community will be left in good hands. I’ve spent a fair amount of my final weeks here preparing to pass the torch to those who will follow in my footsteps and working with the team here to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible. You won’t be left unheard or unacknowledged, but please be understanding while the next folks get settled in. We’re all here to battle the demons of Hell together, after all!

I’ll see you in Sanctuary, adventurers.

    They can't send out shit like that and expect it not to get shared.
    They are well aware of this fact since many years back by now. It's probably just legal speech so they can play dumb until they've got something to announce.

    What rule? Nothing is enforceable. Just like with the "stay at home orders" that these states are doing in the US. They are requests, nothing more.

    It is an implied rule to not screenshot, link it etc.

    We had surveys before that eventually came true, so classic TBC definately seems like its going to be a real thing. Looking forward to it.

    Why would you BIS a 60 then have it obliterated stats wise by Slave Pens.

    Anyone that would migrate an effort like that from “Classic” for blues and greens is just plain dumb. For PVP ranked players.... you have to be 100% insane to do that to a BIS rank 14.

    So far.

    All progress to defeat the virus has happened in countries that aren't above serious enforcement. The real question yet to be answered is where does "21st century western first world dignity" end, and the need to make sure that that society still exists on the other side of the pandemic begin? We literally don't know that right now.

    You wouldn't. You keep your 60 that you BIS'd on a Classic server that never goes past 60. So when you want to do Classic stuff, you play the Classic server. When you want to do BC stuff, you log into the BC server and play your dude there....or don't and just stay on the Classic server with the crowd who prefers Vanilla.

    "Brandy Camel Leaves Blizzard", this is a nice way to put it. What community managers actually do?

    I started in TBC and as much as I loved it, I have no desire to relive it, don't have the time or energy to invest in that grind again. So just like classic it's a pass for me. But hope it comes for those who want it.

    MMO-C doesn't really have reason to not tell their readers about it at this point. Wowhead had already posted it too and there are dozens of threads on the official WoW forums discussing it already that aren't exactly being taken down. Not to mention some of the WoW youtubers already started posting videos about it like 10 hours ago.

    You can't send out a random mailer to people and say "don't share this." If you want that to work, you have to say "I'm gonna give you something on the condition that you don't share it," get their agreement, then send the thing.

    There is no such thing as an implicit NDA :P

    You honestly believe a phishing attempt is going to enforce its own NDA?
