Don't get me wrong -- the game is going to change. But that's kind of the point. And we're not going to start Mists of Pandaria and suddenly think, "Wow, this game is radically different!" The story, lore, and feel will change, of course, and various mechanics are getting overhauled. But the game we love? It'll still be there, still built by the same people, still riddled with jokes and iconic moments. I promise, we'll survive.
