    I can't believe people are not burnt out on this game....The thought of leveling yet again in that game is terrifying to me. I did so many quests in that gmae that by the time I left I never wanted to see a quest again.

    Its going to be nice for this be released. that way I wont have to hear to much talk about classic going forward. it will be awesome for a bit, then people will leave it behind very quickly. Classic is not for me and I cant wait for it to be out.

    It's like people can't move on to other games. I'm long gone to other F2P titles. This WoW Classic stuff just shows how addicted WoW players are and will be getting bloodsucked dry until empty husks. The best thing Blizz can do is delay launch, it will actually help the addicted.

    People have different interest. I can actually play classic Everquest for months and would still be on P99 if not for the way the server is unfortunately locked down by certain guilds in end game. There is absolutely nothing wrong or critique worthy for the addiction people have to a certain play style. Why should anyone's play style or choice of game be a subject for ridicule.

    Do these players have an impact on the games you play or are you of the opinion that if not for WoW other games would be more successful. 

    There are so many things in life where we indeed do cling to older themes and choices but that is why there is so much variety and spice in our lives.

    As a TBC baby I am kinda confuse on Vanilla, I thought people hated WoW since it introduce the whole solo mindset thing to MMOS "single player killed the MMO star" but people seems excited for it too come back , it be nice to have someone explain what the excitement is all about. I will be trying it as an X Shadow Priest (haven't decided on a faction)because I am a contrarian but it not going to hold me for long. At the end of the day its still going to be the same world I already explored in TBC and Wraith and I was never the biggest WoW/Blizz fanboy. I will ride out FFXIV till Pantheon launches.

    If you dont have time to play a game 5 to 10 hours a week then go do something else. .
    5 to 10 hours a week, what are you, a filthy casual?  ;)

    I used to raid 4-5 hours a night, 5 days a week, with similar on the off days to farm raid mats.

    All while juggling raising three children, working 50 hours a week and managing to stay married (was touch and go there for a bit)

    Most worthwhile MMORPGs can't be effectively played in much less than 15 to 20 hours a week, well not if reasonable progression is a goal.

    If I decide to try Classic most definitely won't be raiding again, perhaps I'll seriously give PVP a go.

    Check out TAKP EQ server. Its based on the PoP locked mac server, currently in Luclin and a ways off from PoP. Guilds there are on a raid rotation so everyone gets to play, and people are really helpful.

    I think players will be disappointed because the build up has been so huge, expectations will be beyond sky high. So to avoid disappointment, skip the hype, don't talk about it all the time and let rip once play begins. :)



    Actually I've played Vanilla on P-Servers around the beginning of 2019, I've been exclusively playing Vanilla since the end of 2012 or the beginning of 2013. I haven't played any other version of WoW so I don't really have any expectations.

    My only hopes is that the Blizzard experience won't be like the P-Server ones - botters, Chinese farmers, gold sellers, intrigues between the community and the staff members, corrupt staff members selling gold, characters and whatnot, rollbacks, server downtime, the danger of the server shutting down at any given time, DDoS attacks, etc.

    I expect when I pay for the premium experience, it will be exactly that.

    100M+ people did move on though (based on AB saying they had 100M accounts a few years ago).

    The unanswered questions are:
    1. How many will come back and what % of them will stick around longer than a month or three.
    2. The impact on "current" WoW; Will it turn into a ghost town? Will people who are not interested leave as a result - disruption of guilds, raid schedules etc.? Will players that leave current for classic return and if they do will they be happy? 
    3. The impact on the cash shop.

    I suspect Blizzard will see how it goes before deciding their next steps. I absolutely expect Activision Blizzard to say in their quarterly report after launch that there has been "huge" interest - whilst not providing any numbers.

    Waiting to play a re-release from 15 years ago (yes, I know it will not be the vanilla version). This is beyond comical. I love it though.

    Progression servers have been popular in MMOs for over a decade now, and remasters/re-releases of old games are very common.

    Ahh well its not for you then. I enjoyed Luclin and PoP as they had things to do other than wait around for raid nights. P99 is great but the fact that youll never get to actually do anything but level and stand around sucks.

    Ok

    This is a different baby all together.

    "single player killed the MMO star" 

    Wow at this point of time, was a full group game, bare in mind you cant pull more than 2 mobs and expect to live unelss your overlevelled against them. Doing 'elite' mobs solo YOU WILL DIE this game makes you group, the amount of quests that were in this game, that involved groups is important.

    I will be trying it as an X Shadow Priest 

    Dont expect a shadow priest to be anything like you remember, in fact in raids or groups you will be expected to heal because apar4t form Wanding things ot death your dps aint that much D:

    its still going to be the same world I already explored in TBC 

    IOts not the same world, this world has no flying mounts, the map hasnt changed some areas you never visited when you started the game are key areas in this version, you will spend most of your time on foot, and because of that the world is sooo  much bigger and more lively. You will meet players , you will talk to players. 



    WoW did have issues, and as its evolved it has become a solo style mmo (group finder etc) but in this iteration, it was far far from it.
    Just dont go in thinking its a 'walk in park' you will see how it isn't.

    Nothing comical at all. People are excited for something that hasn’t been accessible in a decent form for years. Seems pretty simple to understand.

    On my server you can get full max duration buffs from friendly folks, and most dungeons have room. Can also box up to 3 characters which is fun and extremely helpful. I had people not even in my guild help me finish my epics.

    Multiboxing is playing multiple accounts without any form of automated key input or mouse control. As in you are basically playing multiple accounts generally by ALT tabbing on a single computer or in some cases on multiple computers.

    Not to be associated with people who use macros of any kind which is BOTing and the plague of online gaming.
