I think they're gonna do TBC

"Best thing to do" what are they going to charge 20$ again on top of the monthly fee? TBC servers would die before people even hit 70 who would sub to play TBC? you could count them on your fingers nobody is that stupid of course there would be a few clowns that would switch servers and transfer if it was free guess what that means? Blizzard loses money for what? to please idiots on reddit? i think after all these failures they have learned that doesn't earn them much

TBC = blizzard loses money
TBC = not happening

Yeah TBC much like Classic can be used to float people over to Retail.

I am almost certain Blizz will release TBC and WOTLK servers eventually :)

It makes sense for Blizzard as well moneywise.

I'd be surprised if Blizzard didn't take the path of least effort and highest gain and move on to a TBC re-release at some point.

I'm more curious why the OP is so angry though. Lots of anger over something that hasn't happened or been decided yet. :neutral:

Who pissed in your Cheerios OP?

I'm having a lot of fun in Classic at the moment. Decided to re-roll, so it'll be a while before I hit 60. Honestly, I've barely played WoW beforehand, but a "progression server-like" release pattern with future content and expansions might prove interesting. My question is whether they'll change around mechanics and re-balance things similarly to how the original/retail went, or rather instead attempt to retain the spirit of classic, whatever that may be in their eyes. Don't know, just some thoughts.

tbc makes the most sense - from a we want the lowest cost/effort to please our shareholders as much as possible standpoint. even if blizz does not have original gamefiles. combine it with new classic servers and also different classic servers that have much tighter patch release schedules something absurd like 1 year and define them as "world first/speedrun/season/ladder" servers or something similar.

If TBC release again I think it will be a good thing for eSport in wow.

It will be really strange to see "TBC Arena tournament" taking the spot, but that was the best moment for esport in PvP.

But hey, I'm sticking to classic for now will see in the futur what will happen :)

They spent alot of time getting Classic on the modern platform.
In my mind they did this with the future in mind, whether they do it or not, they made it easy to bring back other/all expansion with ease.
They did the hard/ground work to just plug in play other expansion with not much work because they did that bringing us Classic.

Plus much like Classic it brought back new/old players into the wow world.
Aka they play classic and love it.
Which makes them stay or they dont like it but re-try/try retail and maybe enjoy that.
Blizzard made another way to bring people back to wow and TBC can bring back a different crowd of people.

I'd play the shit out of a TBC server, provided I can keep my Classic characters at 60 and copy them over.

I would assume so? I'd be quite heart breaking that we can't transfer toons over.

Wow, OP is super salty, but for what? Probably knows that TBC/WotLK is the most optimal way for blizz to go with in the long run and doesn't like the idea.

This is, of course, the only logical speculation. It'd be naive to think Classic will just sit at Naxx forever. They will eventually move on to The Burning Crusade.

I will also offer an alternative speculation:

Blizzard COULD take the Jagex route. They could start implementing lateral changes into the game, new items, new mini dungeons etc. while keeping the core of the game completely the same.

As much as I'd like that, I hardly see this happening, especially with current blizz. New content would take time, effort and money, and clearly they want to spend the least possible of each, and that equals TBC+, WotLK+, and who knows what then. People seem to want the original trilogy back, maybe after 4-5 years they'll even want Cata back.

Anyway, for those 4-5 years, they're good to go.

You might be right but, i really would like them to take the Jagex route as well.

Something that would be cool would be fresh servers a while after Naxx. But I'd also play TBC, and I could also have a little bit of interest in Wrath. A problem I have with the idea of continually resetting fresh Classic servers, is people are going to fall off if the same content just keeps resetting. Feels like going from Classic > TBC > Wrath > Fresh Classic servers and start over again could be a good cadence.

Either way, we're talking a multi-year endeavor here. I'd be happy with either Classic+ or moving on with the next couple of expansions. I'm actually pretty happy to raid log at the moment, wait for BWL, and work on a couple alts in the meantime. The launch and initial bring-up of my main, securing a raid spot as an offtank, and getting ready to raid was a pretty taxing experience with lots of marathon play sessions. And it was incredible, and it was everything I wanted it to be. But I can't keep living that life and playing video games 12 hours a day every day. I like that my character has matured into a place where I can raid log, hang out with my new friends on my raid team a couple hours every night, and keep progressing that way without requiring the same massive time sink that it did up front. And if we ever get to a TBC re-launch, then we get to go back into another binge session of a couple months leveling back up, gearing out, and getting ready to raid log again. I like the time cycles involved here, kind of lets me stay fresh between fresh server binges.

How do you know that? Do you work for Blizzard?

I don't like the way how you judge the players who share their passion for TBC, we already released WoW Classic for you stop being cocky and respect others' opinion.

If you want to have some real fun go look at the older MMO-C threads about Classic after it was announced but before it launched.
