I am still not sure why Current players think that Classic is made primarily for those who have no interest in Current, if that was the case they wouldn’t havebundled the Subscription.
Think about it.
Blizzard in the past has time and again showed/said that they were a ‘data-using design’ company, meaning that they look on collected data and then make a decision based on that, with their particular goals in mind.
To give some examples:
PuG stomping premades were an issue than didn’t make much sense anymore after they ditched the old Ranking system, so for a time in TBC they put Premades in seperate queues. Turned out those people stopped p(l)aying in greater numbers than started doing BG’s again, so in they went again.
Similar how Expansion Capped/‘soft XP Lock’ characters were first kicked out regular BG (not Arena) queues in 3.3 (when the XP Lock was introduced) leading to people ending their (often second) Vanilla/TBC Account sub. China and Blizz got into a row over skeletons and stuff, China closed WoW down, and voila, allowed back in where the Soft Locks - till China and Blizz kissed and made up around Cata start, and away they go again.
due to all the Loot and poaching drama, and logistical issues, (uppernlevel) Instances were very rarely used in Vanilla (according to the BlizzCons at the time, only abt 5%! of the player base at the time). They looked at the data - holy crap, 5%?!? - and then made the decision to increase that %, eventually leading to more and more ‘QoL’ and rushing mechanics (instead of going the other way round, an option as valid if not more).
In general it would be handy to know as exactly as possible what your playerbase is doing, right?
But nope, they chose to intentionally murky the data by making it One Sub.
Why would they do that, if they ‘just wanted to give more bang for your buck’?
To me it makes me wonder, especially given how they / their green lackeys adamantly refuse to answer straight up questions from customers when their public words and actions don’t match.
(Could give more examples of the later but this post is already long as it is).
I’d worry more as Classic player on what your shekels are being used for etc. than the other way round, many signs say that Classic is nothing but a ‘pacifier’ for so-called ‘content draughts’ in Current.
