    cant wait for all day Alterac's again


    i did a 16 hour Alterac once start to finish.
    I had so much fun when we finally won. Getting 1 point per kill. Seeing your nemisis guild on the other side log into it after they were done raiding to feed you fresh kill points.

    Valholl the undead shadow priest shall rise again!

    Raiding vanilla in a group of all warlocks with my shadow dots was hilariously fun.

    People are looking at this from the wrong point of view.

    1.  Success or failure is moot.  

    If players choose to hop over to a vanilla server instead of dropping their subscription and waiting for some new content on the current servers... Blizzard wins... subscription is a subscription.  

    If players choose to hop over to a vanilla server and decide that they don't care for it anymore, Blizzard has convinced these people why they really weren't looking for vanilla WoW.  It redirects them back to the current servers, or away, which would have happened anyway.  So no loss, no foul.

    Blizzard is still going to be running servers of SOMETHING.  Blizzard only really cares about the SUBSCRIPTION.  Blizzard has already put time energy and money into bringing older versions of games into the current era with success.  I predict classic WoW will be classic in that the storylines, talent trees, and world will be, content wise, that of classic.  I don't expect the graphics or models to be classic.  I also don't expect the classic version to be ready for a while... it will be in the works, and likely has been in the works for quite some time.

    If you really think about it, Blizzard is going to copy their own work.  Copying is far easier and quicker than creating something from out of thin air.  Ask any artist which is more difficult, drawing a exact replica of something or drawing something that doesn't exist anywhere?  I can assure you, copying something is a 1000 times easier.  Other companies try to clone WoW... they take the basic formula and then try to change it... that's designing anew.  In this case, there is no redesign, it's just do.

    What a waste of fucking time.  Stop living in the past.

    Are you implying there is a video game that isn't just a waste of time. It's what games are for. Entertainment purposes which is by nature just to make for a good time. You're not meant to be curing cancer or saving the world from some extraterrestrial called Zod. It's a video game and totally different than WoW currently is. But your comment however is definitely a waste of time and so is mine. So thanks for that

    It's in the very early stages. Going to be at least a year or more most likely.

    Executive Producer J. Allen Brack was reluctant to give the publication any specifics on a timetable, saying that the project was just announced, only basic infrastructure is in place, and that the team is forming.

    They should charge 30-35 dollars a month for the "Classic" experience LOL.

    They already have all the assets to do any server that they want. They have just stayed stubborn up until recently and found out that there are more people that want classic than subs that they have now which is what 5 million. Not anything to sneeze at, just a lot lower and going down compared to what they have done in the past. Actual number is not known as they stopped posting the numbers when they kept going down. If they would just listen to their player base, they would make them as close to vanilla as possible. IF....they decide to add servers per expansion, they need to make them as close to the expansion as possible. This all includes game mechanics, talents, and UI as well.

    If they truly revert the game and not just basically cap what you do based on expansion and keep everything just like it is now (mainly the talents), they might start getting my money again after being away since 2015. Joined the fight in 2006 and really miss a lot about those first few years up until LK.

    Now dear Blizzard it is  time to release server list(fast) so we can start theorycrafting which server we pick etc and can start building our guild sites,recruitment etc,thanks in advance.

    They are nowhere near "server list" status. They are still in planning stages.

    You are probably going to have to wait a year or more
    You seem salty about people being super excited about something. Happiness an issue for you or something? 

    That dude is an entire bag of salt thats been thrown in the dead sea, pulled out 80 years later and had salt sprinkled on it.

    "to play in classic server u need pay extra 15-30€ each month"



    Why? Did you expect it would be FREE?

    The ONLY reason Vanilla WoW servers were a hit, is because they were FREE. They said they wanted Vanilla, but what they meant was FREE. I hope there ARE paying customers that will keep this afloat. "Thar she blows!"

    Mom: We don't talk to Priests.
    As if it could exist, without being payed for.
    F2P means you get what you paid for. Pay nothing, get nothing.
    Even telemarketers wouldn't think that.
    It costs money to play.  Therefore P2W.

    For anyone expecting this to be 100% authentic vanilla WoW - you are going to be in for a rude awakening.



    This will be Blizzards version of what they deem "classic" so set your expectations straight



    Blizzard has the Best People (S.T.E.M.) in the industry. They have probably been working on this for a long time.

    Actually the only reason I played on private servers was because Blizzard did not offer official ones. Now that they will it's going to kill the private servers. People don't play a 13 year old game just because it's free.

    Specifically not when there are also servers with objectively more content (any of the private ones that had expansion content and were just as free).

    Judging by the excitement of this, I hardly doubt it is too late. Not that I don't think it will be any less of a complete bomb after everyone takes off the rose-tinted glasses, but I always thought that.

    Now is just the test to see if these people who claim they want a vanilla WoW server will put their money where there mouth is.

    They will even the throw back servers for EQ do very well and they are p2p also. In fact they have the biggest populations of almost all the servers. Judging from the response on this Blizzard will need at least a few servers IMO.
