    It's gonna be fun for a little bit , for me. But I have played on " Free " servers and I think it being free was the real draw for me to play them. I just imagine everyone looking for the " Group finder " and realizing they have to run to that dungeon =P

    I'm really excited to see the fallout on this from a design perspective. I actually agree with the "you think you do, but you don't" mentality. Players are going into this expecting the original experience and they are going to get a min/max pre-raid BiS DPS meter filled grind fest. All the magic of exploration will be gone with all the flaws and heavy grind intact.



    Disagree all you want. Come back and check this comment 60 days after launch when they start to merge servers.



    Your comment would've been logical if there weren't private servers that were thriving for years and years and the only reason they didn't have playerbases in the 100k was because they were never that polished. Even the best had plenty of bug and lack of proper oversight + a lot of people(like myself) don't feel like investing time in something that might disappear tomorrow due to a DMCA.

    Also I haven't checked other servers, but nostalrius when it was in it's peak was getting 15K online players 24x7... if there is even 1 servers like that for each zone(EU/NA etc...) that's more than enough, but I'm confident that the numbers will be a lot higher.

    @Geddon95405 - Rank 13/14 characters were doing naxx with PvP gear... not really sure why you'd say PvP gear won't have advantage. Both me and my buddies were raiding in Naxx when it came out with full PvP gear and depending on what class you were you could top the metters... For example full PvP hunter was the top dmg for the guild.

    "Your comment would've been logical if there weren't private servers that were thriving for years and years and the only reason they didn't have playerbases in the 100k was because they were never that polished."  and your evidence of that so that you are "logical"?

    Can someone explain to me if WOW is keeping Classic "classic" and not implementing anything new, for the most part, What the F*&%^ has taken them so long to release ?
    The reason it is taking so long is two-fold:

    1.  They are attempting to use their current backend to run the game which wasn't written for the code that they used back in the day.  This is like forcing square pegs into a round hole.  The debugging at this point is due to the incompatibilities between the two, not really in "fixing" the game.  The assets are really already there and have been for quite some time.  Hence the existence of private servers... they aren't trying to modernize the backend, they are merely running the code as it was run back in the day.  So yeah, you are waiting much longer for a game that already exists just won't run on their backend without mega bugs.

    2.  They will never release the game whilst they can squeeze some subscriptions out of BFA still.  So until there are no patches due out on the horizon for BFA, you're not going to see Classic.  Remember, your one sub allows you access to both versions of WoW so since they only get paid once, they're going to string this out as long as they can.  When the current raid tier is a ghost town, Classic is more likely to be released.

    All these teasers are just to wind you up for it's release which is most likely mid-late summer.

    I always get a good chuckle from people telling me what I want and why I want it.
    Hey now, these kids know whats hot!  They have their finger right on the pulse of the hottest and hippest popular games all the kids love watching videos of other people playing.  Of course they know what you want better than you do.  Stop being such a smarmy elitist and thinking you know what you like and want and why you like it and want it more than they do.  


    Blizzard's only concern with what people want is:

    "will feature x rather than feature y = more people or less people" since more people = more money.

    This feels more like WoW 2.0 than Classic. Sadly it also feels like I'm in Groundhog Day so I doubt I will be playing. I have moved on to other games like EVE Online, Runescape and Albion Online. But I'm sure this "new" WoW game will be popular.

    I also heard there was something called Layering in the Beta which is like sharding but over the entire world map instead of just the starter zones, which will last for the entirety of phase one, which could last a while if not be eternal. Blizz have killed their "new" game already as that is not very Vanilla WoW at all & I'm not interested in sharding / layering very much. At least EVE Online, yes a scifi MMO it's different from WoW I know, still theoretically has a single shard server.

    I hope there will be a toggle on/off button for "new" graphics , including char models and such. I don't see a reason why they wouldn't do this. And .. if my memory serves well , I think they did said that there will be an option like this?! ..



    No
    Why not?  If is a toggle on the user end and only affects the person who chooses it then it doesn't affect me at all.  I assume that is what they mean.  So I would pick "new" and I would see them instead but not others.  Personal choice that doesn't affect others shouldn't be a problem.  

    Wa min God! Se æx on min heafod is!

    In my opinion because of the slippery slope.  Add this and why not achievements?  That doesn;t affect the people who ignore achievements and is somehow fun for people who like them.  Then why not transmog you can toggle on and off?  And then why not guild banks?  That doesn't hurt anyone.  It just helps guild's organize.  And then why not dungeon and raid finders?   Skills really only are a time sink requiring you to grind for no reason, so why not remove them?  Everyone uses a cookie-cutter builds for raiding, so why have talent trees?  

    It comes down to trust.  No one trusts Blizzard enough to not completely gut and ruin Classic if they start down this road.  Its Pandora's box and can't be opened, regardless of how reasonable or harmless the intent seems.

    Blizzard has tons of games that have everything anyone not interested in Classic could want, like retail WoW.  It would just best for the two populations to stick to their respected sides of the isle.  Let the people who have a big stake in and desire for classic have classic.  Everyone else has all of Blizzard's current offerings and all their future offerings besides this one.  Just let us have this one thing please.

    I read a few years ago that WOW had overhauled their character models. Are they not using the new ones in classic? Those look horrid.



    Maybe have a read up of what WoW Classic means to people. Yes, the old models are not as desirable, to some, as the new ones, but that is the point.

    I loved the old models thank heavens they are not modifying it.

    You are wrong. The new models look horrid. They make the game look like some Disney MMORPG trash.

    The old models are the good ones. In fact all of the old graphics look better, because they have their unique character which is later gone and just looks generic Disney-cartoony.
    What?  It always looked cartoony.  That was part of the initial charm.  It looks more pixar now vs more snow white era back then though.
