    No Man Sky had a lot of hype going into it as well ;) There is also PLENTY of negativity towards it. Look at this thread. Look at comments other then ones who agree with you. Look at the thread with over 50k posts on reddit.

    Ahh, so you're banking on Blizzard completely misleading their player base into what they plan on releasing, right up until they actually release it, to prove you're right.

    You'll have to excuse some of us if we don't put a lot of faith in that position.

    No, I am banking on players drawing conclusions and creating their own expectations ;)

    Personally I am salty. I don't care. I think people who want Vanilla servers don't actually realize it is not want they want in the long term. The reality is closer to them wanting to play a game that simply does not exist anymore and will not exist since that was also a moment in time that does not exist anymore. Does not matter if they reproduce the same content that was in the game, everything else has changed. Games are just...better now. 
    Your first mistake was attempting to tell others what they like.
    I love it when people use the rose tinted glasses bs as if just saying it makes it true and as if people really like what they don't like because it's what? newer? lol Why can't I make you see what you like sucks or whatever.

    I understand that perspective.  Players always do.  But, Blizzard will likely communicate planned specifics as soon as they have them nailed down.  It's not really comparable to the NMS situation (at least, yet).

    You realize there are more than 100,000 active accounts on a single private Vanilla server, with players who continue to play Vanilla to this day . . .  It's a different game than modern WoW, and some of us prefer the classic version.  Like so many others, I played Vanilla WoW for years and still didn't finish everything I wanted to finish.  There are still classes I would have liked to play.  There is at least 2 years of content for me just in Vanilla, and another year or two in TBC.  By contrast, I find the current version of WoW completely unplayable.  I unsubscribed and will not re-subscribe until Classic is released.  You should consider the possibility that other human beings have different thoughts than the ones you have when presented with the same information.

    "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!"

    "Thar be Whales here!"
    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.

    They don't - that's not the only reason. However slap a $15+ monthly cost and suddenly guess what - a lot less people are willing to play.

    Cost makes a difference - always.

    Are you saying this is what you would do?  Or is this more what those other people would do...


    I am saying in general - if there are 2 options:

    1. Free version of game (from a somewhat unreliable source like EMU server)

    VS

    2. Pay version of the same game from official company that is fully supported by an official game developer


    Cost makes a difference, there will still be people not willing to pay and just continue to play for free on EMU server.


    That's my point, the reason why people are playing WoW vanilla EMU is both because it's free and because there is no official version.

    Cost is always a factor

    And how many of those 100,000 "active" accounts are people who are paying money to access that illegal server? ;)

    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
    I think that will be part of the draw/problem ....

    I think Blizzard will get the game as close to Vanilla as they can.... so when you got no mount till 40 and got to run everywhere... no BG instant queues....

    Then when people start bitching..... they will say... "you wanted vanilla"

    imagine, they have the power to create a new story line much different from the current one...it all starts in vanilla WoW, where does it go from there...they could reinvent a whole new direction with the game and actually end up with two separate story lines, the current and the new...doubt it will happen, but it could =)

    Vanilla is going to be far, far more popular than people here are even considering. It will be much, much more populated than those private servers. I'm laughing right now at the people who think this is nostalgia.

    I honestly would not be surprised that Vanilla WoW got so popular, that they start creating expansions for it. Almost like an alternate reality or separate time line type of deal. Except this time (Hopefully) they do it right. Ok, that is wishful thinking, but the vanilla WOW servers are going to be very popular.

    Or maybe WoW 2 with vanilla WoW features and gameplay. I don't think vanilla servers done right will have fewer than 1 mil players.

    I'm just hope they don't use the new character models.
    I hope they give us the option of old and new like they do in current WoW.  I'd personally prefer the new graphics, but I hope players like you have the option to change it to the classic look.

    Ok so where is your source for this or are you also just farting in the breeze like everyone else in here?

    On topic: Having never played WoW I might give this a whirl since I have no MMO home right now.

    Vanilla version of the game is not compatible with their current infrastructure thus likely they will run a classic server as some later itteration and make adjustments from there.

    Oh wow. Well this got me excited. I wonder how far that actually is?

    Gotta admit I was surprised to see them doing this.
    I guess Blizzard wants those fortunes that nostalgiacs with deep pockets are throwing blindly at any Kickstarter game that promises old school these day :D

    My SWTOR referral link for those wanting to give the game a try. (Newbies get a welcome package while returning players get a few account upgrades to help with their preferred status.)

    Just little tip for anyone going to play. If blizzard brings in the warlord system, if they are Battlegrounds with a queue system. All have to do join a server that your out number from other faction then get instant queues. Then can hit high warlord if you play a tons will take a bit making more honor or as much honor as a premade groups, and you don't have keep winning as long the queue are short. Pretty much no skill needed how broken faction are.

     I would expect Blizzard to have LFG/LFR and Multi-server, I would not expect things like ninja to be any more of a thing than it is today because of it. The days of policing your server or things limited to your server are over.
     Them bring Vanilla WoW back is great, but you have to expect it will have certain updates from todays version ...

    They won't add LFG/LFR to the classic servers.  Those are fairly consistent complaints with current WoW by legacy players so it'd be really stupid for them to add those "features" to classic.  They'll probably stick with the method that was around at the time.  You could flag yourself as "Looking for Group" and anyone could search a zone to see who had that status and then message you asking if you wanted to join their group, etc.
    Yeah I highly doubt that they'll have LFG/LFR on the classic servers. That was one of the biggest convenience features ever added to the game.

    That is going to be a contentious feature because I think there are a lot of people who like a lot about classic gameplay enjoy grouping tools and there are a lot who don't. 

    Personally, I hope classic to them means a blend of "vanilla" through Wrath. Wrath was really my favorite period of play. I wonder what "classic" means to Blizzard. Does it mean early vanilla, late vanilla, and will that mean features and content from BC and Wrath? Classic can mean so much and even Vanilla had some different states.

    Someone said they can't see less than a million players for classic "if it's done right". There are so many different groups of people that the singular phrase "if it's done right" is code for "if it meets my envisioned feature set". I think all of the indie retro mmo reboot studios are going to face a lot of that when they release as well. I hope people temper their expectations a bit for all of these releases.

    How long til WoW is on consoles? Vanilla would seem a pretty decent candidate for it seeing as you didn't have so many skills to cycle through.
