63% of the people who responded to the subreddit's poll who plan to play Classic don't have an active WoW sub for retail.

Pretty interesting. It seems Classic will be bringing a lot of players back to the game.

For a couple months, at least, for sure. I just hope its enough for WotLK servers.

I don't see them dividing up the playerbase even further. If TBC or WotLK comes, I think it will have to be the Classic server progressing into them.

I don't think they'll 'progress' the Classic Servers to whatever follows. Now, progression servers like the ones we've seen in EQ, totally plausible, but there would be a never-ending s***storm of people being pissed about their server shifting into another iteration of the game when they were told that the product they're getting would just be vanilla content and nothing more.

So fresh and clean.

I resubbed right before the latest retail patch played for a month and now im resubbing on the 23rd. Retail.isnt doing it for me. I guess ill see if my love of Classic is still strong in a few weeks while im leveling.
It takes a man to admit his limits. It takes a hero to push passed them.

Im in those numbers. Stop at the beginning of Cata and will sub back next week for name reservation and cant wait to play it again. Just got a free lvl 100 boost today, ill probably log on my old main and play him while waiting for classic...

Maybe it was their masterplan all along...

I'm a part of that. I haven't played retail WoW since the end of Legion, I fell out of love with the game. I'll try a month of Classic and see how it goes but I am excited about the launch.

They said expansions aren't out of the question. I don't see how they'd be any less feasible than WoW Classic to begin with.

And it wouldn't "dilute" the playerbase. If someone doesn't want to play vanilla but they want to play BC or WotLK, I don't think they'd play vanilla for lack of an alternative.
