Blizz needs to bring out Classic Wow Servers

That's why there are 1.12.1 private servers. Choose one that fits what YOU like about Vanilla.
/start rant
The only reason people want Vanilla back is primarily because they want what THEY loved about it back, but they want it back, AND to keep the knowledge they've learned over the years of PLAYING. The secrets they DIDN'T know back then, they want to know, so they can exploit it or something to that effect. Nobody REALLY wants to farm trash in MC, or collect Silithid Carapieces for days on end, they want it back where THEIR class or spec was overpowered, or they want to go back to a point where fellow guild members or IRL friends made it bearable. You all know as well as I do that most things were a pain in the a** back then, and many people didn't like it. However, people reflect back, and they remember good times because of the people and the community. Nobody REALLY wants Classic back, they just want what THEY, as an individual, LOVED about Classic.


So laughably incorrect.

It's quite shocking to see people who feel this way be so heavily put down by the gamefaqs community. Not to mention the ironies, circular logic, and hypocrisies present in their arguments. Might I just add; what is the problem if I prefer classic? Why must someone find a reason to challenge that?

It's because they don't like that in that environment they can't "be the best" for whatever reason. Be it time, skill, patience or whatever. They don't want it to exist because they won't be able to do it.

Of course this post will be met with, "no I just don't think collecting resist gear, flask mats, etc is fun"

Thing is, if you don't like it, you don't have to play on it. Why tell those that want it they can't have it?


Besides is farming for raiding mats and resist gear etc in Classic really that different from the dailies you do all day now?

Not to mention, within this single thread, there are already conflicting arguments about where in the games life these servers should even be.

You'll have the "BC was the best, but only first patch!" vs. "No, barebones WoW was the most challenging, I want that one!" vs "I really liked wrath, and if they get a server I should too!"


Not only that, but you have conflicts within those subsets. There are some that say, make it just like vanilla, warts and all, and then you have DaedalusEx who said he wants the QOL changes only.

They're walking around in T14

OK, where's my free T14?! I only have one piece and that dropped of the Sha of Anger.

Only thing I miss about vanilla is the old honor system and world pvp actually existing.

WoW was fun back in the day because it was the only MMO that was out,

Lol, what?! Was this kid born yesterday?

Not only wasn't WoW the only MMO out (for years), it has always paled in comparison to UO and especially Everquest (the first). Handholding and casual MMO does not make a better game.

The whole idea is funny because lets say tommorow Blizzard is like "alright, we are making 3 classic wow servers and 3 bc servers!!"...People would be like, omg this is so awesome!!..Then they go to play it and the forums blow up. "Hey this vanilla server is cool but rogues are killing me in one stunlock. Please fix!!"...etc etc..It would just turn into people exploding about what should be fixed..All the while the game we are playing now is vanilla, just with all the things that were needed to be fixed.

With added issues that need to be fixed but F it. Thats the process.

Classic WoW + Achievements may actually be quite enjoyable. Though I imagine lack of updated content may make the formula get old within a year.
