    I assume they wont let that happen but then again classic wow is technically is an added bonus and free game to play if you have a sub,

    It might be that they will only allow you to have 1 classic wow account per battlenet because it wouldn't make sense if they dont.

    Imagine this, I create a battlnet account purchase a sub then proceed to play 10 wow classics under that one battlenet....
    I would love for it to do that but honestly do you think blizzard will let that happen?

    No, you'd need to pay for 10 subscriptions to have access to 10 Classic accounts.

    How would parents, with minors on the same Battle.Net account, handle this then? It wouldn't work how you describe.

    I have no doubts that Blizzard will allow access to Classic the same way we saw during the BlizzCon demo, with the exception that WoW accounts without a subscription will either be unable to access Classic, or be restricted to a lower level (similar to how trial accounts currently work in retail).

    Again, if you want access to Classic on X number of accounts, then you will be paying for X number of subscriptions.

    Yeah i just opened my bnet and check this out, you are 100% correct,

    I have multiple wows on my bnet and for each wow i have a classic wow options

    BUT on my new bnet i only have 2 wow accounts and it seems i only have 2 wow classic options

    so yeah, technically if you multibox wow current expansion then you could multibox classic wow.

    mmmmmmmmmmmmmm i wonder if it will be worth it multiboxing wow classic?

    dont they strip many of the stuff that made life so MUCH easier

    You don't need to have paid for the current expansion, you simply need a $15/month subscription active on an account.

    But they add back follow in Battlegrounds and the possiblity for powerful addons to assist, remember Decursive. As I recall this addon put buttons on the screen that both selected what spell to cast and who to target it on for the purpose of removing debuffs. Imagine something like that assisting with a dps rotation, or doing optimal healing, etc. (bound to the same single key of course, Decursive was a list of clickable options so you could choose which/order/etc)

    This is all assuming it really is 1.12 and not 1.12 + some modern changes that made the game "better" but didn't really change the core of classic. See follow in PvP, addon changes, Vanilla wasn't stable for long enough, but if Classic is around for years, addons will get powerful without restrictions on dynamic targeting, dynamic spell selection. We'll just have to wait and see exactly what happens.

    Blizzard has already stated that add-ons are going to be using the modern API, and it was specifically mentioned in the BlizzCon Classic panel.

    Understandable, really. With the old API you could create bots with complex decision making to nearly automate gameplay.

    On the other hand, there are a lot of functions in the newer API that that will make things much easier for boxers. The UnitDebuff filters, [nochanneling] conditions, castsequences, etc.

    I wonder if it will just be the current API or a "tweaked" version with some functions disabled to make it more classic-like. Having access to some of the newer addons would completely change the way classic was played. We'll likely need a whole new version of "Jamba" and the ISBoxer addon.

    From a business standpoint, I can't imagine they would want to support two different client APIs. Content and rules would be much easier to maintain independently of the actual client/server mechanics.

    In the demo the gui/api was using newer api with the old gui pasted over the top. And newer stuff was simply turned off. Saying that it was usring a WOD client it seems.
