    They said they made too many changes and don't have the original version of the game....lies ?






    In an interview with the CEO he was saying they are going to have to do a lot of reverse coding to get it going. They have the plan in place and are sure they can do it but I got the impression they were only just starting it. I wouldn't expect it any time soon.



    Honestly, Blizzard wouldn't announce something like this until it was close to implementation. Heck, they were ever talking about it last year but were under sure as to how to structure it in terms of how releasing would go and such.

    They said "Please bear with us, it's gonna take some time". I wouldn't expect to see classic servers before the next xpac launches.

    I came from SWG and CoH in to vanilla WoW... it was pretty much a stone age cave-painting compared to those games and i dropped back out quickly. Came back for BC a quickie... Dropped out again before even getting out of the first area. Came back again with WotLK being pulled in by my better half. 

    I have 0 interest in a classic server but ii am still humble enough to congratulate those who want such a service. 


    I had a completely different experience. I went into both EQ2 and WOW at launch after about a year and half of not playing any MMOs. I dropped EQ2, loved vanilla WOW and stuck around there for a few years through BC and going back after every expansion for a while except the last one.

    I'm actually looking forward to the next expansion more than I am Classic but I'll probably sample it just for the sake of nostalgia. Whether it holds my interest is a totally different question.

    It does blow a hole in the argument that running private servers doesn't step on the business toes of Blizzard.

    Not if billy doesn't come back.  They didn't have his money so....
    I mean whatever excuse people use to continue of free pirate servers, they can't use the argument that it's okay because Blizz doesn't offer Vanilla therefore they're not taking money from Blizzard's coffers. Now that Blizzard offers a "Classic" experience running pirate servers does step on their revenue stream.

    Count me in, i'm 33 now and i was 20 back when i started vanilla. I'm a bit older and with 2 kids but i will no doubt play this.

    Just too many memories in Vanilla to not go back and experience it, i long for the days of creating my own 5-man dungeon group and riding out to the dungeon whilst having a talk with the group. Also questing was a ton of fun and i really believe this will do more good then harm...if people wanna experience vanilla then let them.

    i will rebuy the game when this launches.

    Looks like we finally can put the Blizzard supporting vanilla WoW debate to rest.

    Nahh, they can buy the boosters and bypass all that old content.

    (Yes that was sarcasm)

    Cool. I hope they stay away and we can have a place of our own that isn't called Get Me Outta Here Gardens or Altzheimers Acres.

    Why do I get the feeling this is one of those situations when a parent finally gives up but later on would say "I told you so"

    That is precisely the situation. It will be funny when the classic server players are demanding TBC a few months in.

    It takes 2 weeks to hit 60 in vanilla, the people complaining about a grind must have never played EQ. I agree the grind in WoW is a joke in comparison.

    So, did ESO have a successful launch? Yes, yes it did.By Ryan Getchell on April 02, 2014.

    its going to be a funny thing when the launch of  Classic WoW crushes the sales of WoW expac and whatever other game is unfortunate enough to be on the same release schedule.

    I played for about a month or 2 last December on Elysium server before quitting. I basically quit not because i wasnt enjoying the grind but i knew the servers would't last and it would have been very frustrating to lose all that progress and time.

      Im more excited over the announcement of Vanilla servers than i am of the bland looking expansion

    Just remember and prepare yourselves.... the the classic servers will not be exactly like vanilla wow.   It would be hard for the devs to make it as it was..... there will probably be a few changes.  good or bad? 
    Make PvE GREAT Again!
