Return to the Past with World of Warcraft : Classic
“Some say you can’t go home again. They lack vision!” Words to live by proven true once again as Blizzard unveils an announcement noone thought they would actually go through with:
World of Warcraft Classic Servers!
For those who may not have understood the announcement, World of Warcraft : Classic will be a recreation (with a few minor fixes here and there) of the original base World of Warcraft experience, all the way from the distant past of 2004!
While fans have made unofficial copies of vanilla servers for years (regardless of the illegality), Blizzard has always remained firm on the stance that the interest simply wasn’t there. It seems they`ve changed their minds however, as this announcement shows.
“We’re committed to making an authentic, Blizzard-quality classic experience,” Ion Hazzikostas explained, before giving the unfortunate news that the classic servers will take some time before they’re fully functional.
While not much else is actually known about what WoW :Classic will have in terms of content (presumably the entirety of the base game , up to Naxxramas) there is sure to be a large amount of speculating from the fanbase. Many older veteran players of the MMORPG have fond memories of this period in their lives, so Blizzard will have a lot to keep in mind in terms of balancing, bugfixing, and fine-tuning elements such as raid-sizes, spell ranks, or even which races get which classes.
