Nostalgia is great, until it isn’t. Even if they manage to get every detail exactly right the one thing that they can’t do is recreate the feeling you got the first time you played. Why? You are not the same person now that you were then. People often forget this fact when they are thinking happy thoughts about a past experience. So basically players will be experiencing a game that they played 13 years ago but at the age and life experience they are now. Maybe it will be fun and exciting but it likely won’t be the same and I wonder how long it takes for the magic to wear off. I know I will check it out. I started in early TBC so I remember with disdain walking until 40, everything taking a long time, quests that were grouped in a very inefficient manner in each zone. For all the bad though, it was fun and I can’t wait to poke around inside classic WoW for a few hours. I think a lot more people will treat this as a curiousity and not much more. It will be like a museum, sounds like fun and is for a bit but there is a lot of walking and it’s hard to find the exit.
I dont know which has more love the next expansion or the return of the classic servers
I hope that this is done right. People asked for Vanilla, not Vanilla with chocolate syrup. Fix bugs and exploits, but keep it how it was back in 2004-2006.
Have a friend that quit in BC that might actually come back for this.
I hope they will do it classiclike entirely. Otherwise it isnt classic
Only two things will make me wanna play Classic: Updated graphics and Account Wide mounts.
I'm really looking forward to Vanilla servers because the wailing and whining and gnashing of teeth will be EPIC! :-)
Vanilla, HERE I COME!
Blizzard caved to the whiners..Classic should have been left in the past..
Gonna be interesting if they mix modern QoL changes to the classic server or if it will literally be an exact replica of back in the day.
I've been waiting a long time for classic servers. Very excited about this!
I literally rolled a Vanilla toon on a private server not long ago, now I have no motivation to play it with the Blizzard servers coming out!Also, if they make the stuff account-wide I will actually cry. I hit 80 just as Cata was released and in my noob state didn't know ZG existed and was getting changed, so I never got the ZG mounts and they are some of the only mounts I don't own, at a collection of 418 or so...
definitely wanna try it. I miss old day/night, reading quest for location
I cried when this was announced. I miss the old Kalimdor.
It's only a matter of time before WotLK server
I'm so happy they're finally implementing classic servers! I can finally see the old world since I started in Cata! I'm also really happy for the people who want to relive and recreate their memories from 10+ years ago.
I really hope they won't connect them to live servers, as in obtain tier 3 on classic and have it on live for example (even though that's already obtainable via BMAH). Classic should have its own closed circuit.
Been waiting for this for years <3
