I'm thrilled for the people who have been wanting Classic WoW servers for years, and I'm excited for newer players to experience the game I fell in love with back in 2006.
Okay, I tend to be anti nostalgia as a rule.
Blizzard Entertainment officially unveiled their plans to launch WoW Classic servers at BlizzCon 2017.
I already wrote what my idea for Classic servers was, but I almost immediately changed my mind this morning when I realized what I really want for Classic servers.
Did you guys hear?
The year is 2006.
I've been thinking a lot lately about how mature WoW is, and how the game effectively pressed the reset button with Cataclysm to bring in a new audience and update the world to a more modern state (while moving the story along, of course).
With the introduction of Timewalking we've seen several Burning Crusade and Wrath era dungeons made relevant again, with a chance at scaling 660 gear and a chance to experience the dungeons with their mechanics at the same level as they were originally designed for.
Last night's Blizzard Watch podcast had some interesting discussion about world events, and it reminded me of something I'd completely forgotten about -- the elemental invasions. No, not the ones we experienced just before Cataclysm roared into existence, I'm talking about the old world elemental invasions that were added back in patch 1.4.0.
Would you pay to play on a WoW server that only had the Vanilla version of the game running?
