Wanted : "Bear and beer"!
I have always wanted to play Vanilla wow but I never got around to going on a server.
Very interesting idea, can't wait to see what it looks like when its ready.
As interesting as it would be to having items and achievements earned in Classic being shared with actual WoW servers, I don't think I would like it. Classic WoW should remain a separate entity to the live servers and keep that border there. Maybe some where down the line there could be inclusions but not at the beginning.
I have always regretted I hadn´t started to play a year earlier (started in BC) to experience the legendary vanilla...now it seem I´ll have a second shot - can´t wait for that!
I played some vanilla and a lot of TBC. People are romanticizing Vanilla. After a decade and a half (eternity in tech world) of countless upgrades to the game people will taste what a 2004 game feels like and drop it the first month.Honestly, if I were blizzard I would do an alpha with stock vanilla to gauge interest - before they invest time and money into modernizing an ancient game.Also, TBC was way better than Vanilla :).
hope it will be in the standard subscription, because I certainly want to try it at least even though I don't really miss that ol' time
I wonder if they're doing this because 1) It's a real desire for a large proportion of the community. 2) An experiment to see if it draws the "if you could play vanilla I'd play again" people back, or 3) To shut up all the "Back in Vanilla it was better because........" people up by showing them the reality of Vanilla vs the Rose tinted specs. Perhaps a mix of all 3. Whatever the case I'll definitely have a go as I didn't get to start playing till WotLK.
I'm excited to go back and play classic wow.
Cant wait for this!
Yep gonna try this anyway, but doubt people will be playing on Classic as much as on current content. Memories should remain memories. And no-way I'm going to connect to the game with dial-up!Implementation of Classic option could overcome some burn-out between expansions
Not sure I'm ever going to play on a classic server, but its nice to see that those who've been wanting this will finally get this wish.
Vanilla was the most fascinating time in Wow. Would love to head back there to defeat some old challenges.
I don’t think we can get any account wide content but instead we could get some kind of reward for reaching max level on vanilla servers
I can't wait to finally get Benediction!
There's so many things to consider here. Should old bugs and exploits be fixed, for example? Or would people prefer the game being as close as possible to the original?
So cool to see that they've consulted with the Nostalrius admins about this and even played with them. I give Blizzard a lot of credit for this. Very cool.
