    Got mine, Tekken.
    Can’t wait for the 27.

    By the way the two EU PvP Servers were still full 2 hours after the opening of the Servers.
    That’s a good sign.

    As I recall the epic battle for Tarren Mills was long over by 1.12 but maybe not, I was traversing the depths of AQ40 at the time.






    People would keep doing it sometimes for nostalgia reasons, but yeah, once we had actual battlegrounds to play in, Tarren Mill vs Southshore stopped being a thing.






    Well good thing Honor system isnt til phase 2 and BG's dont come out til Phase 3

    If I can't get my names, I'm canceling my sub. Classic was the only reason I was sticking around.



    This is embarrassing of Blizzard. This is a joke!


    Look at it this way. Looks like WoW Classic is more popular than people expected.



    For a month or two. Then the rose tinted glasses have fallen off and Classic will be dead, like every other Classic server out there.

    There are going to be some very disappointed players out there if they don't realise they have to do this. Good luck getting the names you want!

    Only the L337 kids will be disappointed, because they cannot reserve names like Legolas139858654 or any other super original name out there.

    I never ever had any issues reserving a name I wanted in any MMO.

    In 2004 players were far more likely to pick one game and stick with it long term, today most are hoppers, playing multiple titles in short spurts here and there.

    Within  few months many will fall back into their pattern and sub numbers will decline substantially.

    I have a friend I game with who is as "Joe Six Pack" as they come, (not referencing his abs btw)  :) and he didn't believe me when I told him last night not being able to reserve a favorite name angered some folks to the point they would rage and consider not playing.

    It is a bit silly when you put it in perspective of the scheme of things, first world problem for sure. (but then again,  most gaming related issues usually are)

    Runescape's classic version (Oldschool) boosted the total population by alot; and Classic WoW will probably experience it too in a much bigger way. I'm probably going to hop back in after so many years.

    FOR THE HORDE.

    You can't compare that, since its a Free game and doesn't require a subscription. Not to mention that Runescape classic launched on mobile as well.

    I'm talking about the launch of OldSchool RS which is really the only game you can compare Classic too (cant think of any other games thats been around 10+ years that launched a classic version of its game). You actually did require a paid subscription to play Oldschool; during the initial launch which brought back many old players to the game. Myself included. WoW will probably see a large boost in returning players. :)

    Best to go with names using foreign characters like accents, umlauts or such, then no one can easily report you. (Or easily spam you)

    Another good one is 1l1l1l1l1ll1ll111ll, in most games all looks like the same character.

    ;)

    That remains to be seen doesn't it? Pretty simple to prove too. We just wait.

    As far as the whole "rose colored glasses" statement, the correct way to look at it is "some people look through rose colored glasses ..."

    Because "some people" have great difficulty imagining anything other than what they can see through their own lens.

    So sure there will be people who will play for a month or two and their are people who are really going to get into it. But maybe they are a smaller group?

    I suspect there will be a contingent of players who want it to be like a progression server (is this the correct term?) where they play and then the servers get updated and keep getting updates until they are in the current iteration.

    Perhaps they will wake up before they are disappointed. Or maybe that's what Blizzard plans? Don't know.
