    I am not happy about this news.  I really thought this was going to be a July release, early June latest.  Late August is ridiculous.  Its like all the companies making games that I am interested all conspire to have years long stretches of nothing for me, then a small window far in the future where they all plan on releasing the games I want all at the same time.  And then they all laugh and high-five each other and throw darts at a picture of my face.
    Yes I bet they all think of Blamo2000 on mmorpg.com when deciding what date they go with. 

    In all honesty though I would rather this launch be late August and stable, than a rushed June / July and have all kinds of issues. 
    Don't forget them laughing, high-fiving, and throwing darts at a picture of my face.  That's the really interesting and malicious part of the devs in this conspiracy and you just pretended like I didn't say something far more crazy than the part you focused on.  

    And yeah, I've heard this since the internet became big.  I, personally, would rather have access to a game I want to play much sooner with slightly more issues and bugs, than access later with slightly less bugs and issues.

    I'm not in the majority.  I know that.  But that doesn't mean my want is less valid.

    I'm one of the five people not excited by the news.  WOW Classic isn't what I'm looking for, which always was a FFA PVP server with some territory control.

    I really thought they one day would provide this option as prior to WOW most first gen titles offered such a server, but it never materialized. 

    Good luck to all those who are looking forward to revisiting their old homes.

    I think the pool of people not excited about it is much higher than five people.  Much, much higher.  I think there are far more people furious people are excited about a game they think is taking the broader mmo genre back instead of what they consider forward, or even just that it isn't implementing all the changes they've successfully yelled and whined to have put in games over the years (like cosmetic shops, achievements, etc) that don't seem to matter to a rather large population of people excited for wow classic, that it is breaking their brains.  

    But, I appreciate and respect the fact that this isn't the game for you and you could express it in a way that doesn't include telling me that you really know what I like or don't like.

    here's the thing.
    i too was a vanilla wow player.....my starting server back in 2004 was anvilmar.....
    my ending server was medivh. i to played with miss Lea who saved my ass more than once in the game.
    i also remeber when Final fantasy 11 came out in 2001 every one was playing that faithfully everyday after school...for yrs....until wow hit the scene!!!! then i watched ff11's demise.....they just never came back they went to wow and stayed .
    my point is going back is good cause u remeber how things use to be. but wow has come a long way!!!!
    and some of us want to move foward !!!not go back. i mean i get it....but i bought a 5k gaming rig to play the high end games comming out in 2020..not to try and run 32bit games that after playing games in 4k rezz for the last 2yrs that would be a wierd adjustment lol ...put it this way im sure most peeps would rather see wow run in dx 12 vulcan with new character models rather than in the old 32bit models. and call it wow 2020. now that would be exciting. but i do get it..........but its almost 2020 guys the tech age!! not 2004. i mean dont cha think its time to move foward. i mean my dad just bought a tesla 3....I HATE IT. i liked our old car....he said its time to move foward ...i said yea...right dad.

    The press announcement said the 27th as did the image we were given in the press package from the event. So I'm going with that. There's a link to the blue post with the time zone releases worldwide that people can make reference to.

    Given that 99.2% (yes, I made this number up) of the world launches Classic on the 27th and 3 time zones in the US launch on the 26th, I figured the 27th was statistically more accurate.


    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Three and a half months isn't long enough to test a 15 year old game?

    It won't be perfect on release, nothing ever is, but I'm sure it will have had enough internal and external testing by August.

    I got some real life friends looking to jump into this, too.  One is building a PC for to be ready when it drops as we speak.

    Interesting times.

    Remove the excitement for a bit and look at 2 main points: 1) the cbt 'phase(s)' are 'small-scale, focused closed betas (nothing really new),' 2) >>> Participants will also need to have an active subscription or active game time on their Battle.net Account. <<<. Tin-foil hat theory, they're trying to raise their quarterly numbers. If this was going to be properly tested, it would've honestly started earlier this year. Vanilla wow isn't exactly small...

    I played it on a gateway with onboard as well. I remember how bad it was loading into Orgrimmar and having it take upwards of 5 minutes to get to a stable 10 fps. It was beautiful.

    Hahaha he doesn't currently have a PC, only a work laptop.  So he was looking to get back into PC gaming, and is excited for WoW and some RTSs.

    Small-scale is a relative term. We have no idea how many people they'll invite or how long the closed beta will run. A couple of hundred players testing it over the next few months should be plenty enough to iron out most of the major game breaking bugs.

    Let's not forget that there are a lot of things that won't need to be tested for release as they won't be available until later phases.

    We shall see, it could be a horror show, but I doubt it.

    i started wow about 4 weeks before the first expat so im looking forward to signing up from the start, at least do a month, see if i still gives me the buzz it roginally did, i get the resurect Quazal the Shammy , back when shammies had places :D 
    Would be too much to ask if the servers were called their original names as well i suppose at least then people could join their old servers in hope of finding long lost contacts :disappointed:

    For the Horde..

    This post is all my opinion, but I welcome debate on anything i have put, however, personal slander / name calling belongs in game where of course you're welcome to call me names im often found lounging about in EvE online.
