More details over at PC Gamer.

...Brack is clear that using modern server architecture doesn’t mean that these Classic servers will have the same features that current World of Warcraft does. There won’t be cross-realm servers or Looking For Raid and Dungeon Finder automatic party matchmaking...

I'm hoping they just do a progression server like EQ does now, where you move onto the next expansion after a vote or set amount of time.

Personally I always found that pointless. Eventually you just end up in the same exact space people claimed they didn't want to be in.

DAoC used to have classic servers and then one day they decided to group us back with the TOA cluster because it was pretty much dead... as opposed to making people on the dead cluster come play by our rules. That was when I said good bye to DAoC.

Then again I'm not sure how long people that have claimed they would play Vanilla will actually play.

It's tempting for me since I never played WoW. I always see it like now it's pointless for me to even play since the game is so old and people have so much gear etc.

Even if they went slow and only took 1 year per expansion that's still 3 years until I get bored. I mean, I've already been playing on Nostalrius/Elysium/Lights Hope for a year and a half and I'm ready to give it a go again for official servers.

There is effectively a gear reset every single new expansion as people need to reach a new level cap and get new gear again. As for the current expansion they always implement catch up mechanics for new or returning players to be able to get up with the veterans in a short amount of time. The game can be played casually or hardcore, and really the gap in gear between the super hardcore and casuals isn't so great and you'll still be able to see all the same content.

Vanilla wow was a whole different story and you pretty much had to be a hardcore player to get to see any of the endgame content.
