    It will be lucky to keep a healthy population. No way its going to draw in more then the players of retail. People will realize all of the QoL things added in over the years that were wanted for a long time and realize that vanilla wow isn't as grand as they thought.

    classic will have people playing it until all the classic patches have been released, then there is nothing more to do and players will eventually stop playing or return to retail. So about 2 years then classic will be dead

    Most players will probably just level a character to 60 (If they manage to get there) and quit once they realize that vainilla endgame is garbage.

    Your avarage wow player will not join a 40 man raiding guild. There is no content in vanilla for casual players (most players are).

    Clasic is niche. Many players will try it out, but only the nostalgia tinted glasses players will stay. Casual will realize that retail has muuuuuuch more to offer

    They talked about releasing additional content if community wants it, so i don't think it will ever run completely out of content

    Which is ironic when you think about it, everyone whinged about sitting around doing nothing, and soon enough they will have plenty of it.. lol

    One thing though I think those days of people going ooh and aah at some decked player are pretty much long gone..

    Gonna need some sources on those numbers. Everything from official sources points to that as being factually wrong. Most players now a days are casuals and there is a lot more for them in BFA then classic.

    Only if we have an WoD like expansion where the devs just jump the ship and starts to work in the next expansion.

    Q : Will Classic(and beyond) overtake Retail WoW? A : Depends on the next expansion, if it's garbage or meh(which it will most likely be) - 100% Yes, it will overtake and WoW will follow OSRS route.


    Q : Will Classic(and beyond) overtake BFA? A : Absolutely, in fact - there's nth to overtake, even tho Bfa players prefer to think that they are majority(sweet sweet dellusions), but in reality they are extreme minory(1.5-2.0m subs/of 10-12 potential playerbase).

    I'm glad we've moved on from that shit in retail.

    Yeah retail is a niche market, but that's okay, retail and classic can still live alongside each other.
    No need to bash each other.

    They'll play it for a few months and get burnt out once they realize it takes 40 people to raid and hours of grinding for consumables.

    No, maybe for a little bit. Counting months, but it will get old and people will complain about the grind like they do now, since the grind was WAY worse back then for almost everything, a small majority will stay after a population boom at launch if people don't get tired of it on beta. But I don't think Old WoW can overtake Modern WoW just because how the market and majority of gamers have changed with the times and how certain things are more favorable now then they were back then.

    I do think there's a small chance for Classic to effect current WoW though in design philosophy and ideals, depending on how good it truly does.

    Since this is the general, I won't mince my words. Vanilla took the world due to a perfect storm of factors that have been thoroughly analyzed and cannot be reproduced as-is. It lured in amazed new players discovering the genre to a game that was very superior at the time, and massively marketed.

    Classic will be nothing like that. Its community will be mostly comprised of old, jaded, nitpicking people. Not amazed newbies.
    Classic will have a very solid core community, but its appeal to new players will be weak. It will not skyrocket.

    However, Retail may very well collapse. This is still possible because Blizzard has obviously lost its touch. Classic would then be the more durable WoW experience.

    i hope it does great and has a solid population that sticks around, but i don't think it will pass current wow. im sure there will be huge numbers at first, just like any expansion release.

    Different time, different market.

    It was new concept back then. It was entire new type of game advertised for masses. Everyone tried it, not just gamers. There were MMORPG games before that, but they failed to be casual enough for non-gamers to try it. Vanilla WoW hit sweet spot that made it so popular at that time.

    This time its for gamers. Its not new innovative casual friendly game. It won't reach mainstream non-gamer audience, so it is a niche market.
