    Better to experience the game first in a version closer to it's original glory days before seeing the travesty it is today 

    when will the WoW Classic Version start?

    I admit I did not hang at all on World of Warcraft. And yet, I find this game full of good ideas. But, unfortunately, I find them too little or even poorly exploited. So, I did not really have fun playing it. It was fun at first, but we get tired very quickly

    The thing is, if you have never played it then you have nothing to compare it to other than some random person telling you it's not the same, it sucks, ect.  I don't like it now, but I wouldn't tell someone who hasn't played it before not to try it out.  Plenty of good content to be had if you have never done it before.

    As far as the classic, I'm not sure I would someone new try that out.  Better to start with the current system and then try it how it was at one time or close to what it was.

    I'm not an IT Specialist, Game Developer, or Clairvoyant in real life, but like others on here, I play one on the internet.

    People honestly think WoW had 100m players. lmao, if that were true Blizz would be screaming that from the rooftops. 

    Anyways, I would say no, most people have started to leave WoW for games like ESO/GW2/FFXIV and a lot of servers are dead/dying.  The Free Trial (F2P) is alright, but doesn't really capture Endgame content (which is the real meat). People are saying wait for Classic, but to get a taste of the gameplay, play Northdale or Elysium (Classic Private Servers). The gameplay is much slower than Retail and it will take any where from 5-7 days (in-game time) to reach max level.

    I am still partially active in the WoW F2P community, but play mostly GW2/FFXIV, if u need a community or want to ask questions about WoW F2P https://xpoff.com is a good site.

    I played WoW from launch -> Wotlk; typically "quitting" at some point and coming back for the next expansion. I picked it up again for Legion and I loved it - the only reason I quit was because I simply didn't have time.

    Would I recommend people play WoW? It depends on what you want in a game.

    Do you want to raid and invest time analyzing how to maximize your class, understanding mechanics, etc? Then in my opinion, assuming BFA didn't completely change raiding, absolutely yes you should play WoW.

    Do you want to quest and experience a fulfilling leveling experience with a world populated with other players doing the same thing? Absolutely no, you should not play WoW. 

    It is a game that has been around for years; the focus is on end game content. As it should be.

    There's plenty to do if you've never played it. Plenty of quests and tons of story. Plenty of Achievements, Transmog appearances & mounts to collect. I'm not sure how much of it you would think is good, but there's a shit ton to do for a first timer.

    Gut Out!

    What, me worry?

    wait for the classic server. IMO. Vanilla wow is best (what is somewhat going to be the classic server)

    Try the free trial before you do anything. Also, given that you have no previous experience, the modern leveling might suit you.

    But if you ask me, you haven't really missed much. It's like missing on LoL or Fortnite. Not a terrible loss.

    A travesty to one person is a masterpiece to another. Ok, maybe not a masterpiece, but a comfortable and enjoyable experience nonetheless.
    Let's be generous and say WOW currently has 5M subs.  We heard several years ago over 100M gamer's have played WOW, so this means 95M+ are dissatisfied with its current incarnation as they aren't playing it.

    I stand by my initial assertion, he should wait and play a version which will be closer to the game most knew and loved, than one which is largely ignored by most past customers.

    No it doesn't. I loved the shit out of Ocarina of Time, but i played it enough and i don't play it anymore. Just because someone doesn't play a game anymore doesn't mean they don't think fondly of it.

    Others might stop playing due to no time, moved on to something else that caught their fancy, died, ran out of money. Simply put there's a million and one reasons and you're only picking 1 for all 95 million. That's astoundingly...narrow minded.

    It was amazing when it first launched back in 2006..

    No MMORPG ever made came close to its quality..

    Blizzard is a shit company now though..  All the good developers from Blizzard North are gone.

    If you've never played WoW before... absolutely 100%, do not pass go, do not collect 200 dollars, WAIT FOR CLASSIC.  It releases in August.  If you've waited this long, 2 months won't kill you.

    YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BUY ANYTHING!!!!!!!!!  Classic only requires a $15 sub fee.  That sub fee will ALSO allow you to play retail as well.  But I sincerely doubt you will actually want to play it. 

    Here's the deal.  Leveling MEANT something in original WoW.  Mobs didn't scale around you just because you dinged a level.  You venture into a zone designated for higher levels, you got owned. Gear didn't fall from the skies like skittles either.  You were a plate wearer?  A cloth item dropped that actually had better stats that you were wearing?  You equipped it.  Every little thing mattered.  Weapons skills, talent choices, gear, how you played, where you went... professions... yes, professions actually mattered.  Inventory space and gold were resources that you had to earn.

    Retail WoW leveling is meaningless.  Mobs are never likely to kill you unless you walk away and watch Netflix for 30 minutes while some mob beats on you.  You can literally level naked because gear doesn't matter.  Professions are a waste of time.  Talents are meaningless because only the level 120 talents matter and you can change your build willy nilly at no detriment to you.  Everything is basically handed to you on a silver platter.

    So if you like to play a game in which a brain is not necessary, other players are not necessary, just a valid credit card... Play retail WoW.

    If you want to play a game in which you want to engage with others, and where choices have real consequences, and like to feel like your efforts aren't just running on the hamster wheel all day... Play classic WoW.

    If you can't wait 2 months because you are bored shitless out of your mind, find a private server and play there for free.  They're harder to play than classic is, but as close to classic as you can get.

    Not quite the same.  Ocarina of Time hasn't nearly evolved as much as WoW.  And it hasn't had nearly the amount of post-launch content added.

    If you never played WoW before all the past wouldn't be a bother for you. It would be best that you stuck to current WoW.

    Previous WoW players? It's not time yet. 8.2 is just a rehash of Timeless Isle and Legion's Azuna with a Horde city designer gone nuts creating twists and turns everywhere. It's one cluttered MESS of objects to get stuck on -- you couldn't wait for flying FAST ENOUGH!

    Yes, the shock of playing an actually fun MMORPG with a real in game community could very well stun the modern player into a perpetual stupor.

    ... oh wait, that's the state they exist in now.
