[Blizzard] Announces World of Warcraft Classic - Page 20

post #191 of 250
I understand why Blizzard has been so reluctant to release it. Wile popular at first, it'll certainly lose its appeal and people will eventually get bored about doing same content over and over again. That's why they make all those expansions after all. People tend to hold idealised memories of their old times gaming (as anything else). Playing WoW Classic in 2018 may prove to be very far from what players remember.

It probably won't cost them much to maintain one server like that and it may become some extra attraction.

I imagine tons of people starting it out just to try and quitting before level 10, even less making it to level 20. But there is a large community of hardcore players who really want this. I just looked up vanilla private servers and I see over 10,000 people currently playing. So there is definitely people wanting this, even if there's no new content.

Current Legion content is pretty much done with except one more raid. After people have cleared it, there will be no reason for PvE players to log in anymore. I could see lots of people going to the classic servers as a time filler between new content.

These classic servers are not coming for some time. Probably even years. So it will be filler between BFA and whatever is coming next...maybe.

I remember buying this on release being a huge WC3 fan. . .

God was I disappointed, had no idea what an MMORPG was really. Had no idea there was an "end game" thought it was just endless grinding of NPCs with horribly unbalanced PvP

My little brothers however loved it and it sucked up years of their lives. I'll have to let them know

I ended up getting into SWTOR years later which was obviously just an ever quest/wow clone. Maybe i'll try out classic with them. Don't really want to mess around with guys who dropped thier childhoods into the game. Might as well just wait for a new MMO

Listening to the big wow community streamers who'v been championing this for a long time, they think Blizzard may make a Burning Crusade server after a certain point and restart the vanilla server. Giving the bored lvl 60 vanilla guys either a way to continue onto BC content or restart on a fresh 60 realm.

I can’t wait for this!
post #197 of 250
Guess I jumped the gun with the private classic servers, maybe I will get the itch again in a few years when I can stomach the grind again. I had a lot of fun revisiting this era of WOW though. BC would make me even more interested though as I saw most of the content up to BWL.

I hope that isn't true. Otherwise it won't be any different than what WoW has already been through.Releasing expansions and changing stuff is why there has been such a big outcry for Vanilla. Some people just hate what the expansions did to the game.

I really hope they don't wipe the slate clean after a certain amount of time either. That will kill off a lot of interest. The point of an MMO is not to have your character erased.

I don't think many people are willing to do seasons of WoW where it resets progress. It will take several months for an average person to hit level 60.

If you get bored of doing the same thing, just chose a different class or roll and it can be an entirely different experience. Then you still keep your progression on one character in case you don't like the new one.

So you want the server to just.. stop after all the content is released? I'm sorry but that's absurd. WoW isn't a sandbox, it requires a constant stream of content to keep it relevant, and this has been a part of its design since vanilla.

Either they should wipe after a certain time so that progression can start again, or update the vanilla servers to BC and introduce more vanilla servers for the purists.
