I'd love for classic to become a place where they brought in their cut content and saw out the entirety of their plans from back then. Like if they somehow got to WoD, they could give us Farahlon and the Shattrath raid they planned on. If they do that and add the Abyssal Maw to Catassic/Classiclysm, hopefully they copy paste it into retail too.
For Classic Plus, I'd personally like something like Classic Reforged or remastered.
I enjoyed the Soul of Iron challenge very much. Cata's changes to the leveling world removed the sense of dangers the leveling world had. So I don't think a Soul of Iron in a theoretical "Cata Classic" would be interesting of have any sort of challenge like Season of Mastery has.
I think people have forgotten blizzard publicly released the name and email addresses of every player who posted so they wouldn't have to moderate their own forums during cataclysm. What they did was incredibly dangerous and is now illegal in many states and Europe. There was also a blizz employee who did it first to show how safe it was, and he was driven from his home and had to change his name, then blizzard went ahead with the change anyway.
I think the obvious answer is to let us copy our classic characters to retail at some point, or give us the option to continue with Cata Classic and beyond or retail. I for one am not interested in Cata Classic and don't really want to play retail unless I can copy/transfer my new main from classic there lol.
Too many changes. Cata is not "Classic" anymore. Fun or not, it changed everything that went before and was the start of the modern retail era.
Fork the game and make a wow-verse with a new side story to WoW that isn't following the original path. Make a game that keeps the spirit of the first 3 expansions. I would definitely play a new WoW that is more like the first three than retails.
what I would want is for all my friends from those eras to still be playing, minus that, nothing else would get me back and considering that sadly one of them has passed on that won't ever happen
Picture this: You are fighting Arthas in ICC, in the first week of the Classic+ prepatch. Arthas kills the raid at 10%, Tirion breaks free and swings at Arthas. But the Lich King is prepared this time, and death grips him away. Like he knew what was coming. Arthas removes his helm and breaks it in half, causing the sky to rip open. Torghast's spire looms above. Arthas is tired and injured, so his Valkyr whisk him away to the sky above. Confused, Tirion recovers and rezzes the raid. He stares into the sky. "What *is* that?"A winged Uther glides down from above, also with a puzzled look on his face. "Where's Arthas? He was supposed to be here!" Bolvar pipes up, still struggling in the chains above the Frozen Throne. "He's gone to claim a bigger crown."
For many "Classic" ends with Wrath, but personally I'm really hoping they'll at least keep going until MoP.
I honestly hope they don't do Cata Classic and beyond. Much more interested personally in a Classic+. I want to see BIG changes for vanilla. That foundation is just way too good.
The vast majority of the classic community does not, in fact, want RDF removed. They want xrealm functionality removed from it at most. The decision to remove RDF was based solely on greed - who needs to pay 40 bucks for a lvl70 boost if they can dungeon spam their levels.
