From what I gathered in the last few days, it seems like the Classic hype is stronger than ever.
I've seen streamers who were absolutely adamant that Classic was just a Nostalgia thing and would not work in the long run, make a 180 degree turn, admitting they were wrong.
While others avid WoW players who recently quit BFA, like Sodapoppin and Asmongold were absolutely excited about Classic.
I also had a look at WoW official forums and people are raving about Beta, even the retail fanboys seems more open on giving Classic a fair go, whilst just few months ago there was a good amount of vitriol all over the forums against Classic and its fans.
I can feel a strong positive vibe.
I am pretty confident Classic would be a success, there isn't a Social MMORPG around these days, and there are many people who crave the return of more relaxed days when you'd level at your own pace.
I am also sure many kids will love this 'new thing' where getting stuff actually means something and feels like an achievement, something they probably never experienced in their young online gaming career.
Personally I can't wait for World PvP......Stranglethorn, I am coming!!!!!
