I love the idea of vanilla servers. I just hate that we'll have to wait for potentially a couple of years before they're live. I hope they release the game exactly what it was back in the day, no changes.

Hoping it'll be one of last, pre-TBC patches. There were some nice UI cleanup work they did for TBC I would not mind seeing. I probably doubt it'll be a one-to-one. I could see a good handful of UI improvements across the board that we see in modern WoW actually, especially being able to chat with others through the Blizzard app is probably a plus, oh and the LFG system.

Has there been any official word on how they'll 'sell' it? I'm thinking the sweet spot is F2P up to level 20 (quite a bit there with the old leveling speed) and $5 subscription for the whole thing. They could even make special deals through Twitch Prime making it free with your Prime sub. Just floating ideas.

Today Blizzard posted a teaser, but didn't say what it was. It looks like classic wow, as all the old npc's are in the right place in the starting zones. But everything is in High-def, with shadow textures and high def exclamation marks. The footage is not from a private server and it's not legion either. So people are speculating that this is the alpha version of classic.

dang.. i remember each of those starting areas lol.  i loved the boomstick gang when you come out of the dwarf area.  and the spiders in the elf starting area used to be HARD and that first undead area outside the starting zone, human one.. that damn farm with Princess and then HOGGER.   course i was usually a priest so everything sucked for me to kill.  so were the undead's punkin patch quests with the scarlet dudes? troll stuff on the islands gah. the tauren one just was sad from what i remember.   that whack a peon one always cracked me up cuz it was right outta WARCRAFT "Work Work"

hahaha.... people are gunna HATE the long ass runs as level 1s to get to towns.  that locked tunnel from loch modan.  i'm almost gleeful at the pain and suffering to come. :O  i think if they can preserve the COMMUNITY that each server had, that's one of the things that made it all so memorable and will make the pain worth it.  even your enemies were your friends in the long run since you'd end up knowing them well, battle after battle.

Looking forward to Stitches!  why they dumbed him down is beyond me :/   one of the few things you could do for a change of pace once you hit 60 and weren't running MC or Zul lol

No official word, but rumor has it this summer or a few months after BFA.  There are huge discussions and fights on Reddit about ever little thing.  There will be a lot of compromising to satisfy everyone, and people will still complain.  After leveling characters these past 2 years since I left STWOR and Guildwars2, on private servers such as NOSTRALIOUS, KRONOS, VOA, LIGHTS HOPE, WARMANE and a couple more I can't think of, and yes some to max level some only a few dozen levels......
I have absolute confidence in my leveling skills in both VANILLA and TBC
so bring it Blizzard
I'm up for the challenge.
