There'll be a stress test on July 25-26, but that's about it.

The next time you'll be able to play Classic will be when it's released.

To be clear I am talking about Blizzard, not WoWI. Even if my account was flagged for alpha/beta, I would have had to be subscribed to develop Classic addons; to have physical access. This appears to be an immutable requirement of Classic.

This means that even after launch one will have to subscribe to develop addons for Classic. I wouldn't be surprised if there is a PTR later, but launch won't have that benefit.

Hopefully there is a non stress test open beta where this can resolve itself.
