makes you wonder what will shift from one to the other?
I am definitely going to miss walljumping. Getting to some of those places was an art form, a tradition. Showing other people how to get there was also special.On the topic of sharding.. I really hope they don't do it. If rather have the servers be rough at launch than have sharding in place. Sharding takes away from the community feel.
It's interesting that they're looking in such detail at everything (for example the lightning!) to deliver the most authentic experience ever! Sounds like the Blizzard I know and love =)
The people asking for cross-game transmog are ridiculous. This project is not for you, it's for people who hate the direction they've taken retail and want to return to a time when the game was something worth playing. You can keep your transmog where it belongs and stay on retail where YOU belong.
Still not thriled about classic, but will give it a chance (again :P )
This project is a testament to the fact that Blizzard listens to their customers; eventually, if enough people want something, they will at the very least address it. The fact that I think many players who ask for this aren't prepared for how tedious it actually is remains a completely different story altogether.
What is “sharding”?
Are they planning on having Classic WoW using today’s graphics or go back to exactly what they had 14 years ago?
I started playing during BC so I never got to experience Classic WoW. I’d love to play it and see what it was like with 60 being the max, epic gear hard to come by, no flying, mounts and riding harder to get... it’ll be interesting to going back to a time when so many players were running everywhere.
Cool interview. I personally don't have a problem with the possibility of sharding, especially if its for the purposes of helping with server population issues.
"And items that you get in Classic WoW will not be transmoggable by your characters in Modern WoW"No invisible chest for me. R.I.P.
"but services like Realm Transfers could be added in the future." please no
still sad that we cant get anything 'sharable' between classic and modern. like, i wanna be able to get unlockable old transmog and the like.otherwise, i do kind alook foreword to maybe playing a char or 2 on classic
I hope they start talking about weather effects, Its important!
Looks promising for real, but the game back then was waaaay different compared to the game right now. Not so sure it will be good move but we will see.
Looking good, lots of good memories for vanilla from reading this. Sadto see no items are transmoggable.
The old pardals :D
TBC should definitely be the follow up, but hopefully they won't be adding any completely new never before seen content to classic, it needs to stay true to the original.
