Can Classic World of Warcraft Hold Up in Today's Market? -

    No it will not, it will be a game for fanbois who haven't settled in other MMOS yet. My WoW account is from 2004

    In the short term, I think it'll be successful.

    In the long term? I doubt it will be a big thing, but I've learned never to say never.

    Now, the clever twist that Bliz might pull off is to take Classic as a foundation and then develop it in a completely different direction.

    One could perhaps call it "Hardcore WoW" or "Old-school WoW" - something like what we might have hoped for once, long ago.

    I think the core elements of Classic WoW are solid enough to expand upon, and I always loved the world building and the engine.

    They could go crazy and turn it into a full-loot world PvP thing - or some kind of sandbox MMO set in the same world.

    The sky would be the limit, but it obviously won't happen - as Blizzard was never really a creative company, and these days they're all but dead in terms of innovation or boldness.

    After seeing the beta? No way.

    The other thing I don't get about these servers though is that there's no avoiding the inevitable progression/end of the ride. Eventually the game you're playing will become the retail why bother? And even if it never moved beyond X or Y're not going to get new content why bother?

    This is the falsest of false dichotomies.

    The way they are actually going to handle it (or so they've hinted) is this: When it's time to progress the timeline, they may leave out certain so-called "quality of life" changes, most importantly the ones that contributed to the overly casual nature of modern WoW that Classic players despise.

    Just imagining the Legion expansion under a Classic ruleset seems amazing to me.

    At first I though you are a bot, necro-ing this thread.

    BUT, that line over there, for some reasons, brings me excitement. Legion for me, is one of the best x-pac. So yes! I'm all for it.
