    New info from MMo-c interview

    9EBB0B7C-1346-45EC-9E08-11A88F5951D2.png

    New term “Chromie Time” used

    Specific expansion Zones will only go to a certain level, if you are in chromie time, they scale to 50?

    "If you aren't in Chromie Time, zones will only scale up to the cap for that expansion. You can still level that way though!"

    Meaning that even if the ability to talk with Chromie is locked as a F2P restriction, we can still wander in the world "the old way" and level through it / being capped and do quests where we have the level. Sounds nice!

    No stat squish but potentially being level 8 or 9 with a f2p cap of 10... sounds fairly promising for not having to re-gear much too.

    That would depend on your term of “veteran account” vs “new account” in the context that is shown.
    I surmise Blizzard is speaking of a “veteran account” is an account that has already been established. So no, Blizzard isn’t directly acknowledging Veteran accounts (non paying old subscribed accounts) in that vernacular. They mean “seasoned” accounts.

    Long term Trial accounts( all twinks for that matter) are a drop in the ocean when compared regular subscribers, few thousands compared to millions.
    Many of the Trial account restrictions are put in place because of spammers, gold sellers and what not. Not because of people playing them as Twinks. Most of the restrictions existed when the level cap for Trial was level 5.
    It is a rare day, a rare day indeed, when Blizzard acknowledges our type of gameplay. Very very very few subscribers play the way we do. Practically anything that Blizzard does to affect our type of gameplay comes as a result of other changes. Very rarely are changes made because of us. That would mean acknowledging our type of gameplay. Our numbers are too small at this point to even bother.
    At any rate, every major patch bring exciting changes. This one is no exception.

    /cheers

    Kinda weird that you will be able to lvl from 10-50 only in Cata zones compared to 10-50 in all Eastern Kingdom/Kalimdor zones. Like either they’d have to drag out the 5 Cata zones or make lvling in general really fast.

    " • Significantly faster Leveling "
    I believe the estimate he mentioned was 70% faster (before heirlooms)... add 'looms to that and you'll be leveling at literally twice the speed of what the zones were designed-for! :eek:

    Hmm, well I guess Classic gave people the opportunity for enjoyable leveling. And even though it has been a gradual change, retail will just be 100% about endgame in 9.0.
