Why wait when there are private servers available now? I don't understand this logic.....
They are free to play, and you know that Blizzard is going to have the economy screwed up due to the inevitable purchase of WoW Tokens.
I've played these servers earlier this year. They are fun....for a little while. Then you realize the questing system has you going ALL over the place just to make a tiny bit of progress. Then the gear you acquire is the (obviously) the same old crappy graphical stuff you've ignored for over a decade, because it is so lackluster. The talent trees, which I've missed, unfortunately do not inspire. You end up doing the same old builds you did a decade ago.
Look, I like classic servers and progression servers. I do. But WoW Classic is just the same as it is now, only more "irritating". Whereas something like EQ Progression servers, and classic private servers offer something not available today.....original gameplay.
I find it hilarious that the company that made the dang game takes 1.5-2 years to release their Classic servers, when fans (who probably do not get paid to do so) did it in their spare time in WAY less time. I would forgive Blizzard if they were doing something to the new servers that could accommodate that long wait. But as far as the beta showed, they are not.
