So, basically, there's no one that has more than a fleeting interest in this and the whole thing is completely pointless? I guess we all really do think we do, but we don't.murph0613 said:There are a couple groups of people who will be interested in WoW: Classic.
1. People who didn't play and want to see the "world" pre-Cataclysm.
I am in this group. I will be interested in seeing all of the changes, both in landscape and questlines, that were either changed or retired. Most of us are current players that didn't get to play Vanilla when it was current content. I believe this group of people will have only a temporary interest. Once we've seen all there is to see, we are done with Classic. Our main game will still be current expansion WoW.
2. People who played Vanilla and are disappointed with the changes in WoW since "X" expansion.
These are your hardcore folks who liked farming for arrows as hunters. The complexity and pace of Vanilla was where they liked it, and they immediately got butthurt when Blizz created expansions and "dumbed down" the content so more people could access the game. They are still secretly fuming that they had to jump through endless hoops to get gear or titles that are now practically given to new players. They want the world the way it was. Some of them may be satisfied with WoW: Classic. My guess is, their interest in it will also be short-lived. There just won't be as many people to dominate as they were used to. Many of these in this group are elitists.
3. People who were good at taking advantage of other players.
This group will be sadly disappointed. Any changes forthcoming will certainly close all known exploits and vulnerabilities. That group will likely not be happy with Classic, especially when they find out that they will have to pay for it. Blizzard will never allow their IP or servers to be compromised in the ways it was in the past. It would be foolish for them to accept that, and foolish for people to think that would be OK. This group of people will be short-lived as well, and this effort may result in many banned accounts. Blizz is pretty serious about their TOS.
The team and their families got literal death threats over this, Sean go the worst of it. That was not deserved in any way.klash2def said:Sean Murray and Peter Molyneux from the Fable/Black and White series have a lot in common.. i remember reading somewhere they are actually neighbors and good friends. I gotta find the article but this would explain a lot if Sean is getting advice from Peter.
I am not one of those people who wishes a company shuts down because they messed up.. that creates tons of hardships for people. I do hope they are able to deliver ALL the things they promised to people, there is no way to cut it, Hello Games/Sean lied to us and deserved all the hate they got. They have to take big steps if they want to win that consumer trust back.. This is a step in the right direction yes but not enough for me to return personally. I applaud them for continuing/trying to fix their wrongs though.
Let me also say NMS isnt a BAD game, its just not the game they promised. I feel like this would have turned out really differently if they said "HEY this game is in Alpha and we hope to add ABC to it but you can play now as we continue to develop it." and make it a 30$ price tag not 60$.
For myself and my friends to return they need to add the things they promised.. IE: Different Ships, Crafting (fix it), Day/Night Cycles (true it), Multiplayer (add it wtf are the orbs).. to name a few
