Zan - while you make that sound like Blizzard could do anything with an expansion, as you pointed out WoW 1 is quite successful - and there is no way they would kill the goose that laid the golden egg.However there is a ton of stuff that could be advanced: completely different set of races, and race alliances, totally new set of classes and dump some existing ones, new graphic engine, no one wants to level to 110+, old world content is a wasteland, etc.So at that point they could do an EQ2 and hit the big reset button. I don't think EQ2 necessarily failed, you just have to remember that WoW came out around the same time and stomped it. Next generation to Blizzard I would guess would actually be years from now. I don't think Starcraft could have the same mass appeal as Warcraft, however it's quite possible that Blizzard would be alright with making only half of the gigantic mountain of cash they currently sleep on.
