    It's not really an accusation if it's true. Blizzard wanted the hype train and they got it because of it.

    EZ free PR for them.

    Decursive started in Vanilla, practically a required mod before MC even came out. (Yes, I was a food and water and decurse mage bitch :p ).

    I would have been very surprised if Blizz didn't give out invites to the big streamers. We are looking for the biggest audience who can find the big and small bugs, so who better?

    And I'm still pissed that I didn't get an invite, god damn it Blizz I was there on day one you're breaking my <3

    Meh, never used it and never heard of it until now, although last time i seriously played was wow vanilla raiding naxx. Shrugs.


    After that, i feel they should have opened up the closed areas of azeroth as new zones and kept the same level cap and the zones fill gaos in between other areas. Eg hyjal could be equivalent to eastern plaguelands with its own instance on par with aq40 or something.

    #NO CHANGESSSSSS

    But seriously, internally I'm sure Blizz have labelled Classic as a project with little costs / high returns.

    Sure, there's the initial costs of making servers / game rebuilding / etc, but if people are keeping their main sub to play Classic (or flip between BfA during quiet periods), it'll pay off long term.

    Wonder if it's going to be a true classic with massive server lag and chain disconnects :)

    and getting in trouble at work for needing to constantly f5 your guild's web forum on work computer, asap after raid signups were listed each week - to get in first for the couple of available druid raid spots before they disappeared :D

    ahh, (retrospectively-and-probably-incorrectly-remembered-as-) good times.

    one of the better qol issues missing in classic is faster respawns of mobs in starting zones and more than one person tagging a mob. At least in the first days/weeks people are going to running in circles finding that one last wolf to kill. Even worse if you're not a ranged class of some sort. Same with named mob, you'd better have an instacast and be quick. It'll be chaos at first.

    Yeah. Best to go groups of 5 for mob tagging with friends.

    It also forces you to group up with new people and perhaps become friends with them, and thus community starts to form...

    GL grouping when you're in the barren's, i'm sure people are going to put in extra effort for Barren's chat to be next level when classic is released.
