    More importantly though. Why would a Classic+ expansion be any better than a retail one? Why couldn't it be the case that Retail gets an expansion or patch based on the Scarlet Crusade, and Classic gets the one where you go inside Uldum and learn about the cosmic powers.
    You don't understand. it would be Classic+. Yes, it would be develped by the same people that develop retail; and yes the story would be written by the same people that write the story for retail, but but but... it would be CLASSIC+!!!!!

    Obviously it's because Classic players are so adamant of what exactly they want and when compared to Retail.

    It works with Oldschool Runescape so i don't see why it wouldn't work for Classic

    and considering they want ogres and high elves as new playable races I can see how well it would go with retail players not getting them, especially ogres.

    OSRS and Runescape 3 are two fundamentally different games.

    Classic and Retail are also fundamentally different games . Where classic is all about the journey from start to finish , retail is "play the patch" in this huge world where you actually just visit the actual zone that the recent patch made relevant and you do the content there.
    Don't get me wrong i play both but there is a certain type of magic that classic has that retail has just gone too far into a direction , where it can't recreate anymore.

    classic+ would slowly cannibalize retail like it happened with osrs and rs3

    worst case scenario they would both die, and anyway I keep wondering what difference would it make if the content added to classic+ is made by the same people that make the content for retail

    Lmao, "about the journey". I guess that's why there was such a problem with raid logging.

    Tell me, if it's about the journey, what do you need + for? You are literally asking for patches to play while whining about how having patches to play ruined the magic. What do you think is gonna happen when you add Emerald Dream to classic? That people are going to ignore it and go hang out in Loch Modan and Thousand Needles?

    The issue is that they are so different that you cannot expect players to just jump over to continue playing. So Classic+ wouldn't replace Retail, it would just kill it off, leaving only the Classic playerbase.
    Blizzard isn't so dumb that they would do that.

    Do you guys think that blizzard should keep armor restrictions or not?

    Like keeping armor types for gearing(cloth, leather, mail, plate) but unlocking them for transmog.

    I think at this point with trading post having more cosmetic and thematical armor sets, it's time to pull the plug and allow players to go crazy with their transmogs, it would unlock potentially thousands of set combos.

    Also allowing by that the farming of old transmog sets on any class, no matter if its plate or cloth.

    classic+ can't be as bad as post legion retail because:
    1) the devs now know they made some mistakes they can't take back with retail but they can avoid with classic+
    2) metzen is now supervising the game. fidelity in a potential classic+ should be higher

    classic+ has a higher potential (in terms of players) than retail, but the latter currently has more players and stable playerbase who would hate to lose years of progress and would probably quit. It's a pretty tough choice for blizzard.

    yes, they should keep armor restrictions but they should also add more cosmetics accessible to everyone

    If you allow anyone to wear whatever, you might as well remove the categories altogether. Plate is objectively better because it has armor on it, so you'd have to generic all the types to the same armor level and at that point what is even the value in having different types if anyone can put on whatever and they're all the same mechanically.

    Assuming Classic+ is some new content for Classic Era that require at least to level 1-60 in old world before, in reality no one from retail would care and classic audience would tell it's shit, cause made by 2023 Blizzard, and 2023 Blizzard = bad. "Cannibalize retail" xDD

    The fanbase for full cosmic adventures in space for Retail is pretty small, so I doubt the argument that Classic+ and Retail have significantly different tastes for expansions is true either.

    As I said before. I assume there are people in Classic that would be down with an expansion to the backside of Azeroth, just like how there are probably loads of players in Retail who want nothing more than a World Revamp with Scarlet Crusade and a raid in Stratholme.

    The argument still stands. Why should any expansion only work in Classic+, and not in Retail? Even if it's only a patch, I imagine Retail players would love the Scarlet Northern "expansion" some players want for Classic+.
