    You cannot avoid goosebumps after the rewinds finally conclude and you get to see the dwarf traverse the snow and look over the horizon to reveal the glorious capital of Ironforge. Music and all.

    It is really something for any vanilla player.

    First EA steps back the microtransactions, now Blizzard is looking to release classic servers? It ain't April, Suzie! What gives??

    I'm curious how they'll do it, like if they do servers on a expansion by expansion basis. I personally liked Cata (I only liked MoP for Timeless Isle). I'm also surprised there aren't at least 30 posts already about this on here.

    I might actually give WoW a shot. I hope the classic servers won't allow any veteran rewards etc.

    Is it wrong that I'm actually far more excited about this than the expansion? \(^_^)/

    They could do a smarter job.  Rather than progression server, and expansion server.  Say you play  on Vanilla Silver Hand, they can  open up a TBC Silver Hand and you can copy your character onto that and those who want to stay on Vanilla Silver Hand can do so.  And Yes, allow you to have your character on both if you want....Hence the copy rather than transfer......

    i wonder if you can pay just for vanilla servers - my guess is no
  • WalkinGlennWalkinGlenn Member UncommonPosts: 143
    I wonder if it will be legit vanilla or their own bastardized version of it.

    I would like to see a function similar to the current level boosts. At character selection you would highlight a character and then permanently opt them into an expansion.

    When you're ready to move on from vanilla. Highlight TheDude344 and click 'The Burning Crusade' Then you get a pop-up 'TheDude344 will now have access to The Burning Crusade expansion and all subsequent content up to Patch 3.1400. This change is permanent. Are you sure you wish to continue?'

    This would allow me to experience expansions at my own pace.

    I bet they wont have the classic pvp system where only 1 person can reach grand marshal per week.

    Very surprised that they're playing the vanilla card so quickly. Figured they'd wait until the game was on its last legs.

    Hopefully not, that was one of the worst systems ever.

    Never know.  That would make it feel vanilla to me rather than the change they made near the end of vanilla for the tbc expac.

    I don't really care about Vanilla servers that much but it's WoW you're talking about... It's not an ordinary mmorpg. It is never too late. I can literally link you dozens of forum discussions from other websites, videos form youtube etc just posted days ago about how they want an official vanilla server. It's never too late for WoW.

    Pretty sure that if they are doing everything as it should be then the old PvP rules will apply. Btw 1 GM per week wasn't the issue, but the fact that you needed to be first for the week to get it was what was tough. If people weren't willing to pass it to you it was really hard especially back in the days where there were no cross realms and if you weren't in the best PvP team on the realm your chances were slim to none, however I'm sure that they will keep the dungeon finder and cross realms, so things should be different.

    Why would they when they can say they are hosting it and they need to make you pay specially for it separately and not part of the WoW subscription so people will pay double to play WoW. Win ,win for them.

    I am excited for Classic servers ... but has me wondering if that includes the graphical upgrades or are we getting a true 2004 server? Either way .. I am exited to re-see the old world again.

    Where does it say that ... What is your source? Is this just speculation?
