Second Source Allegedly Confirms The Burning Crusade Classic Beta in March 2021

Recommended Posts

DBF6X0b.jpg

Nano from the Nostalrius project is back with a second source that allegedly confirmed that Phase 6 and Naxxrammas are planned for early December 2020 with The Burning Crusade Classic Beta launching in March 2021, and we also find out that TBC Classic may launch sooner than expected.

Barrens Chat reports that Nano had a second source confirming Phase 6 rollout and details about TBC Classic. Obviously, nothing has been officially confirmed yet by Blizzard so take the rumor with a grain of salt.

So I kinda don't get the point of WoW classic anymore if it will get expansions as well. Sounds kinda dumb to me just re-releasing expansions again. Everyone liked Wrath of the Lich King so they should go with it at start.

I wonder how they are going to do it. Separate servers for BC, while leaving Classic intact? Allowing people to migrate? Feels like this would spread player base too much.

that's a very closed minded thing to believe, like you think everyone liked wotlk more than vanilla/tbc which is just factually incorrect

either way, I think that p6 in december is hella early and probably not going to happen. I think some servers still do not have the gates open, or at least only did very recently. p6 is probably in january

I started playing in late Vanilla and have played every expansion; TBC was my favorite expansion by far.  It was effectively Vanilla with much needed bug fixes and systems improvements without doing a full overhaul like WotLK and Cata did.  Back in TBC I thought it was awesome how we were effectively the antagonists.  We were invading Outland and we were toppling Illidan who we thought was a Dictator despite him actually being on our side.

I like how we are the a-holes in TBC.

Just to carry on the 'hundred different perspectives' thing, I thought this soft retconning of Illidan and the demon hunters was out and out the worst thing from Legion. 😄

I'm going to guess separate servers with character copy for level 60s.

Burning Crusade was when I started raiding. Overall, I liked it, but some of it's systems and balance were rather wonky. 

Many of Illidan's actions can't be considered good, using broken draenei as slaves and forcefully converting more orcs into fel orcs, among other things. Wouldn't call him a good guy back then.

Of course, he is not. He is an anti-hero, chaotic in nature, and his motivation cannot be seen in TBC. The only thing we know of him at that time is his hunger for power. 

And to be honest I wouldn't call Legion storyline a retcon. It feels more like his actions was given context. 

I don't want to go to extremes, but let's just say that his ultimately good goal does not justify his actions.

Maybe official Lore but I played a Night Elf Rogue with the Blindfold face option in Vanilla back in 2006 because what I really wanted to play was a Demon Hunter.  Night Elf Rogue was the closest thing.

Gotta remember WC3 was still recent and Illidan was a Tragic Hero not a Villian.  Even At the Time it was very Weird to the Player base that we were going after Illidan.  Even end game story in TBC doesn't make you feel like you are the good guy.

It really wasn't a Retcon in Legion, Legion just nailed it home that we were the bad guys canonically in TBC.

Burning Crusade was waaay more interesting for me, rather than this Wrath thing.

So they will roll out over Vanilla? Why not make different servers, for different games. This way if you want to stick to Vanilla, you can. I'm waiting for BC myself tho.

How is it soft retconning? He always had good intentions.

      Rob Bridenbecker, Executive Producer and Vice President of Classic Games, posted an update on the development of StarCraft II, and Blizzard will no longer produce for-purchase content like Commanders and War Chests. Season rolls and balance fixes as well as esports events remain unaffected.
      (Source)
      To the StarCraft community,
      StarCraft is one of a kind, and we’re committed to making sure that those of you who love this universe like we do have a home here for many years to come. With that in mind, we want to let you know about a development change we’re making for StarCraft II as we continue supporting it for the long-term.
      As many of you know, Blizzard continues updating its games long after the initial release—some of you will remember that we were actively patching the original StarCraft more than 10 years after it first hit store shelves. This year we celebrated 10 years of StarCraft II with one of our largest-ever patches, with massive updates to the editor, Prestige Talents for Co-op Commanders, and gameplay improvements delivered to players worldwide.
      We’re going to continue supporting StarCraft II in the same manner as we have with our previous longstanding games, such as Brood War, focusing primarily on what our core and competitive communities care about most. What this means is that we’re not going to be producing additional for-purchase content, such as Commanders and War Chests, but we will continue doing season rolls and necessary balance fixes moving forward. On that last note, we’re not planning a Q4 balance update given that we did one a few months ago, but as always, we do plan to continue doing them as needed in the future. StarCraft II esports, which is part of the highest echelon of professional competitive gaming, will also continue going strong as it has been through our partners ESL Gaming and GSL.
      We know some of our players have been looking forward to some of the things we’re moving away from, but the good news is this change will free us up to think about what’s next, not just with regard to StarCraft II, but for the StarCraft universe as a whole.
      StarCraft is core to Blizzard, and we’ve learned that it’s a game that can change the lives of people who devote themselves to it, whether as a player, content creator, streamer, or member of the community (or developer). The outcome of each match is in your hands 100%. To become better, you have to look inward, be honest about any flaws, and dedicate yourself to improving. StarCraft teaches us that that process of improvement can be a reward in itself, and it’s certainly taught us a lot at Blizzard over the years.
      You are one of the most passionate, creative, and dedicated communities in all of gaming. We’re eternally grateful for your ongoing support, and we’ll keep you updated on any and all plans we have for future voyages into the Koprulu Sector.
      Uhn dara ma'nakai,
      Rob Bridenbecker

      Activision Blizzard is planning to close down Blizzard offices in Versailles, and so the union representing Blizzard workers went on strike, and we have players joining the strike in-game.
      French streamer ZoltanTV shared a screenshot of players protesting against Blizzard EU in the game. Even though I fail to comprehend how paying one's monthly subscription to a company that you protest against counts as protesting (I obviously mean the players here not Zoltan), but here goes nothing!

      According to Bloomberg, Activision Blizzard informed employees Tuesday morning that they will be closing their second-largest office in France.
      Activision Blizzard has many offices worldwide, and the French office located in Versailles employs at least 400 people, most of which provide Customer Service for EU players.
      Originally, the company planned to relocate half of its employees to London. However, due to Brexit and the ongoing health crisis, Bloomberg reports they have completely decided to scrap that idea and close the Versailles office.
      It's not clear how many people will lose their jobs and how many will be allowed to relocate to different offices, but French labor laws force companies to negotiate significant compensation packages for employees caught in mass layoffs, according to Bloomberg.
      Apparently, the French employees were told they would learn more information next week, and an Activision Blizzard spokesperson did not make an official statement just yet.
      You can read the full article over on Bloomberg here.

      WarCraft 3: Reforged was always hoped to be a platform for potential mod remakes of the earlier games and much more creativity besides, but after the very rocky launch that seemed to fall to the wayside a bit. But now we have a really great project to look forward to, as Chronicles of the Second War, a WC2: Tides of Darkness remake is in testing and already has 4 missions ready, as well as a cool trailer!
      You can download the mod, for now featuring just the first 4 missions over at HiveWorkshop!
      A dedicated team is working on this awesome project and have already done a whole lot, from the new unit models, campaign implementation and so much more. You can check out their aims, features for the mod and everyone involved below:
      And here's a slightly earlier  video showcasing the Orcs:

      There have been some rumors going around recently about a potential second Warcraft movie that may be in development. These were somewhat vague and just mentioned that the production company for the first movie, Legendary Entertainment, were "already discussing" the next Warcraft movie behind the scenes and that it would wipe the slate clean and start the franchise over. The next rumor had a little more weight to it, coming from a relatively reliable "scooper", Daniel Ritchman via Movie Web, and claimed that the second movie is actually already in development. All related articles mention the poor critical and audience receptions of the first movie, as well as it's success in China and high box office returns from overseas.
      Now all of the above rumors were a little under our benchmark, as it's all very vague, but something new came up today which definitely got our attention, as first noticed by Wowhead:
      Metzen was also involved in the first movie, co-producing it and being an un-credited writer, and he also had a cameo appearance in it as a turbaned perfume vendor in Stormwind. Whether his comment was just as a member of the public and obviously interested in seeing more Warcraft or he knows something more about this rumor is unclear, although it seems difficult to believe a project like that would be made without his knowing about it. In any case, his mentioning it definitely made us a lot more curious.
      We've also recently seen some community wishes for a potential Lich King movie, with Henry Cavil as Arthas (with some posters whipped up as well), which definitely got everyone's vote for the next attempt at starting the Warcraft cinematic universe, and it seems pretty likely that regardless of which iconic storyline they choose to adapt, Metzen should be involved to some degree. The first movie's director, Duncan Jones, previously both shared his own plans for a potential trilogy, and commented on the fact that a sequel wouldn't be happening as far as he knows, which is true even if the above rumor turns out to be true.

      NOT part of the rumor, just a fan interpretation.
      So, what do you think of the rumor? And which part of the Warcraft mythos should be covered in this potential re-launch of the brand on the big screen?
