Blizzard Sending Out New Surveys About "Classic" Version of The Burning Crusade

Recommended Posts

Blizzard is sending out new surveys to players about Classic Burning Crusade via mail!

Back in March, Blizzard sent the first Classic TBC survey to players via mail. They wanted to find out how the transition from Classic to Burning Crusade would be handled. Now, it appears they are sending out follow-up surveys.

Blizzard is asking via mail how interested would players be in a "Classic" version of TBC, and if they would simultaneously play 2 Classic versions of the game. One interesting question that appeared in the survey deals with a WoW Classic "reboot" realm where the game is as it was on Day 1 (e.g. all players start at Level 1, Molten Core and Onyxia are the only raids available, etc.).

Summary of All Questions

  1. How interested are you in a "Classic" version of The Burning Crusade?
  2. Thinking about your maim WoW Classic character, would the character you create on this new "fresh start" realm become your new main character or would you play this in addition to your main character?
  3. Where do you think you would spend more of your time?
    1. A new "fresh start" WoW Classic realm where all content is reset to Day 1.
    2. The Burning Crusade Classic.
    3. I'd play both equally.
  4. How likely are you to play a "Classic" version of The Burning Crusade?
  5. If World of Warcraft introduced a new WoW Classic "fresh start" realm where the game is as it was on Day 1 (e.g., all players start at Level 1, Molten Core and Onyxia are the only raids available, battlegrounds are not yet available, etc.) and content unlocks/progresses over time, how interested would you be in playing on that realm?

I think Blizzard is going to have to come to terms with the fact that "Classic" rereleasing was a one time thing.    But obviously the bean counters want to try to milk subsequent expansions.

TBC "Classic" might kinda work but it'll just get more ridiculous the further they go.    Only some players want to relive those days and diluting the "classic pool" with other expansions is just going to result in a dry well at some point.

I for one am stoked for the 2028 release of Classic MoP.

I couldn't disagree more. Me and my Classic guild are very much looking forward to TBC and hopefully WotLK.

I know people would like to see a Classic TBC version, even a Wrath version.

But as a separate version or as classic being turned into TBC? It might spread player base way too thin, either classic could suffer due to this or both (some staying with classic, and not enough going into TBC).

It is very likely that the same people who wanted classic want TBC - They were not so far apart from each other. There was tuning to stats but it was practically the same game just more polished.

I think people would even go as far to say that TBC was the pinnacle of WoW. In terms of them really fine tuning what classes do.

Yes this will dilute the player base. But hasn't it always been diluted?

With 40 servers currently that wouldn't be a problem. Characters could simply transfer to the populated servers and the game would still be active for anyone wanting to play it.

Yes TBC was epic although the PvP system was way better than classic's torturous rank decay system for common people with lives.

I would play TBC like nothing else. That was the key time of my WoW gaming peak.

      Omar Gonzalez, one of the "creators" of WoW Classic, has left Blizzard for Dreamhaven.
      Omar Gonzalez was a WoW engineer responsible for the early advancements of WoW Classic. Omar locked himself away for a few weeks and created an early prototype of Classic, which had a ton of bugs, as mentioned by Ion Hazzikostas in the Wowhead interview, but the game was in a pre-Cataclysm state and had all the original skills and talents.
      This made the team feel confident about re-creating the Classic experience.
      According to the latest reports, Omar has now left Blizzard Entertainment and joined Secret Door, one of Dreamhaven's studios owned by Mike Morhaime.

      Activision Blizzard apparently plans to lay off even more of its employees and consolidate its EU publishing offices to the UK.
      Activision Blizzard's CEO Bobby Kotick is set to receive a $200-million bonus. On the other side of the spectrum, the company recently laid off approximately 190 employees who worked in the Esports / live departments due to the ongoing pandemic.
      Further layoffs are imminent as the company plans on consolidating its European publishing functions to a main hub in the UK.
      According to Games Industry, the layoffs will affect Activision Blizzard offices in Germany, France, Spain, the UK, and 2 offices in the Netherlands.
      The cuts are said to be limited to publishing functions and won't impact development, live ops and customer support representatives.

      Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick is set to get a massive bonus in the amount of around $200 million, on top of his standard yearly salary in the tens of millions, as the CtW Investment Group called out in a statement criticizing the bonus. The report comes after a recent layoff round at Activision Blizzard, in which between 50 and 190 employees were let go.
      CtW is an activist investor firm that focuses on holding directors and executives accountable for what they feel is irresponsible and unethical corporate behavior and they've issued a statement criticizing the bonus, as reported by GameSpot.
      The reason the bonus for Kotick will be so high is apparently the "Shareholder Value Creation Incentive" provision in his contract, which (basically) states that if the company's share price is at least twice the amount it was at the end of 2016, and holds that price for at least 90 consecutive days, he gets the cumulative bonuses from several past years. This has already happened, as Activision Blizzard has done very well during the pandemic, and so the $200 million bonus is set.
      You can read more about the matter over on GameSpot.

      Jason Schreier reported that Activision Blizzard has laid off approximately 190 employees who work in Esports / live event departments via Twitter.
      A Blizzard spokesperson talked to Bloomberg and revealed that players are increasingly choosing to connect with their games digitally. The e-sports team had to adapt to the changes due to the pandemic's impact on live events. As a result, Activision Blizzard Inc. fired approximately 50 people.
      Placeholder for tweet 1371907443396124676 Later, Jason Schreier said that the number of employees that have been fired is far greater, and estimates say it's 2% of the total staff, which translates into 190 people, instead of 50.
      Placeholder for tweet 1371946511832125443 According to the latest report, dozens of people were impacted, not just employees, in live events. In addition to 90 days severance and a year of health benefits, laid-off staff received $200 Battle.net gift cards...
