Hm.Nutty thought. With some people speculating that both races could be neutral and with the issue of player retention looming and Blizzard looking to make money in different ways with things like faction transfers...What if the big announcement isn't ONE expansion but TWO?Two paths to level 90. Two new races available to both factions. Two boxes.Thing is, paying $50+ for an expansion may scare some people off if all they want to do is continue progression.So here's the idea:Two $35 expansions.The Great Sea opens up TGS zones from 80-90 and unlocks Goblins for both factions.The Emerald Dream opens up ED zones from 80-90 and unlocks Worgen for both factions.Get one or get both, Cateclysm Green or Cateclysm Blue.The net effect is:$20 more from completists than a $50 expansion would yield. And likely some achievement/mount that comes with getting both.But for anyone who wouldn't pay $50+ just to keep leveling existing alts, Blizz keeps them onboard with the $35 price point.And from a design standpoint, it probably means that you'd see less of the newer races so they don't drown out the old ones the way Blood Elves did, since you WOULD have people who only get HALF the expansion.
