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.

      The new Battle.net is almost upon us! The long time beta is coming to a close and going live for certain NA regions now, with a full release coming in the next weeks as well. Check out the official post:
      Battle.net (source)
      We’re getting ready to roll out the biggest front-end upgrade to Battle.net in years.
      Battle.net has been a huge part of our history going back to the release of the original Diablo in 1996. We’re proud of how it’s helped people connect and play Blizzard games together quickly and easily. With the latest release, we want to welcome players of all ability levels and make sure they have a smooth time navigating the app. 
      Those of you who’ve been participating in the beta are already familiar with these updates. For everyone else, you’ll see some major changes when your client’s patched from the live version of Battle.net to the new version:
      Improved navigation and layout—you can now favorite your games and arrange them for ease of access A much more expansive layout for news and game content in full-page view A revamped social pane so you can better see your friends and what they’re up to on each game tab  Major accessibility improvements—we’ve added the ability to navigate most of the app with your keyboard, increased our screen reader support, and improved the color contrast A new, consolidated notifications hub for messages and download status
        The new patch will go out to parts of North America first so that we can ensure its stability. We’ll roll it out further in the weeks ahead, including to other player regions. 
      This is just the beginning of new features coming to Battle.net; we’ll keep iterating, improving, and adding to the app over time. We’d love to hear your feedback once you’ve spent some time with the new app, and you can share your thoughts on the forums.
      Go play some games and have fun!

      The launch of Shadowlands was extremely successful for Blizzard. The new expansion became the fastest-selling PC game in history for 1 day, and ATVI stocks reached all-time highs.
      The current share price is $89.39, according to Yahoo.

      Blizzard France employees are going on strike against the planned Versailles office closure on Shadowlands launch date.
      On October 6, we reported that Blizzard would be closing their French office in Versailles, which employs at least 280 people. The first strike as per the recommendation of their union happened on October 14.
      A new call for strike against the planned Versailles office closure at Blizzard France is supposed to occur from November 24 onwards. 
      The union calls for an abandonment of the closure, diversification of the Blizzard activity in France, and investment in the care of psycho-social risks.
