    so people are just going to play the game all over again? and clamor for xpacs to Classic? and then so forth? that's dumb.
    10 years from now.... "Hey Blizz when are we getting Warlords Classic xpac" ….sounds pretty stupid to me.
    I'm not playing the game all over again...I have already walked that road

    For real if they do it, they should stop at TBC. Everything went bad when WOTLK came out. If WOTLK had so much subscribers it was thanks to the momentum created by TBC. The mindset used to design vanilla was what people loved. Then they slowly shifted to a "modern" mindset which ultimately led to BfA. People don't seem to realize that WOTLK was the beginning of the end.
    - Too much levels
    - Different raid level
    - Different raid size
    - LFG
    - Corrupted PVP where every fuckin class had 2-3 bubles/ice block/vanish/deterence... and death knight ruining the classic fight synergy with their death grip and AMS

    Wrath. That's the last "Vanilla" expansion before errr'ythang went fuckery up with Cataclysm. I hate Cata for a ton of reasons that didn't need to be done. Dungeon 0.5/1 sets, Warlock/Paladin mount quests, getting rid of Shendra'lar faction, Benediction gone, etc. Cataclysm is what the world we're in now is like with phasing and all that. Vanilla WoW didn't have that.

    That said, I liked Wrath. Specifically the Crusader's Seals for BoA gear. I farmed the shit out of those seals to get all the BoA gear I could. Plus I loved how the LK was almost always around in any zone you were in while questing.

    My realistic guess is Wrath, which I think is where they'd stop. My hope is that they'd just make at least one set of servers (PvP, PvE, RP, RP-PvP) for every expansion.

    I REALLY hope they stop with wotlk, what came after is not really wow anymore

    TBC.
    wotlk killed dungeons.

    but, it must be on seperate servers.
    either copy a char, or brand new start.

    cause i not going to play classic, unless i know for a fact that the character i make will stay level 60 forever.
    they REALLY need to answer this asap.

    They will do whatever they project as a financial boon. It's not difficult for these projects to succeed, the private servers retain massive players with nearly zero marketing involved, and spreading only through word of mouth.

    It's not like developing an entirely new game. There is lots of work to do, but it is not as much as launching an entirely new title, so it is easy to get a return+subscriber boost from it.

    I see TBC/WoTLK being done, but who knows? It's honestly plausible we'll see a classic+ or TBC+, but probably not.

    I’ve said this for a couple expansions now: they should be keeping servers for each current expansion as they release new ones, even if they don’t release them to the public yet. Imagine 3 years from now they can could just be like “haha! Legion server is out!”

    It would be amazing if they reimagined a new path from classic into an all new expansion. I'm sure the player base will warrant the resources. They could change the story line into an all new direction. With the retrospect of 15 years I bet there are things they wish they could do a different way.

    or there wont be a reason for me to play.

    i dont need a virtual reset timer on my progression.

    any dungeons/raids will be for level 60, but of course more difficult. requiring better and better gear.
    i could see professions going over 300 though.
    and maybe some new battlegrounds. brand new.

    so any progression will not be 2.0 ... 3.0 ..etc
    but rather, 1.13 1.14 ...etc
    it's highly doubtful they will focus resources on making new content for a classic only server compared to spending those resources on highest live expansion or next expansion. classic realm will probably have 10% the population live realms have, at best.

    if they make a TBC realm I'd expect them to offer a free one-way transfer of your classic server char to this new server. so either keep it at 60 on classic realm, or progress further on the new realm.

    I'm surprised at the amount of people who are praising Wrath and shitting on Cata. They're extremely similar in what they did for the game.

    Ideally keeping the Phase the character is on. Wouldn't be nice seeing Naxx geared characters on a restart server.

    Doesn't matter where it end, the important thing is that it's not FORCED like TBC was.

    I wanna play classic forever, be 60 this autumn, in 2 years and in 10 years. Don't touch classic!

    They'll almost certainly just give you the option between staying on classic or moving to a TBC realm of sorts. (Or moving to a pure classic realm and upgrade everyone else to TBC by default)
