I doubt it. World of Warcraft Classic feels more of a rerun, not a reboot.

As I said in another topic: how exactly do you propose that is going to work when Retail had already touched on nearly every piece of Azeroth at this point?

Or are we going to pretend alternate Classic would never go to Outland or Northrend? Or that Deathwing would be written out of the lore, the Broken Isles, Kul'Tiras, and Zandalar would be forever ignored, and Pandaria would be forever hidden in the mists, and Y'sharaaj just wouldn't have existed along with the other Old God's.

Classic can't really go in a different direction as modern without essenially ignoring all the established story hooks that were set up in both Classic it's self, as well as WC 2 and 3.

Maybe do all that s*** but keep the classic gameplay style

Idk how they'd pull that off though

I'm sure they could bulls*** something up if they really wanted to go that route, like Classic versions of Quel'thalas and Gilneas, with Quel'thals being entirely wiped out by the Scourge and Gilneas being a huge madhouse of uncontrollable lycanthropy. The lore discrepancies are the absolutely lowest rung on the ladder of hurdles. I'd be more concerned about whether they're even employing anyone who knows how to keep content in-line with Classic, and how they go about handling it.

But I don't care either way right now, if there's new content or not; I'm in the honeymoon phase.

They should do Vanilla, BC and WotLK unchanged... and then re-design the game from there.

I don't know, I'm just having a really hard time trying to play Classic without knowing that the game has a future.

At that point Blizzard will be effectively making two games and that amount of resources and manpower I have doubts they will dedicate. Of course I don't know what size of team worked on bringing about Classic.

Nothing wrong with that mindset. Personally I'm treating the whole thing as if its like Valhalla. We're just here to keep playing and fighting til the day of Ragnarok approaches.
