    I hope your right. I am not going to get my hopes up too much as this is a sore subject for Blizzard and we all know how stubborn they can be, but official legacy servers are looking closer than they have ever been before.

    Sad to think that WoW (and the games industry in general tbh) is so pathetic at the moment that a large amount of consumers would rather play a 10 year old product than a current product.

    I honestly doubt this will become anything. It just Blizz trying to save face now that legion is coming out, and the movie. I honestly hope for a LEEEEEGIT vanilla server but i doubt it will ever happen.

    I thought it was pretty obvious that they ran out of ideas after WotLK.

    zomg... I dont know if i want a legacy server.

    At the same time i would love it, but seriously the game was so broken back then, many things are worse now but A LOT of things were really bad in vanilla as well. Im still sure the real problem is Heirlooms and the xp boosts

    They wont release legacy but Blizz can learn from this.

    Convenience changes in general killed it for me. Flying mounts were the start as it got you from A to B while being able to avoid all the mobs/players. Then we got faster levelling through boosts and heirlooms which cut the time you spent adventuring with other players. Then you got dungeon finder which made the whole game outside of town pointless. The you got garrisons that made all content outside the garrison pointless.

    To an extent, the inconvenience forced socialising with your server, and that made the whole vanilla experience for me, as you knew everyone on your server and everyone's actions had consequences. Bad rep as a loot ninja, good luck ever getting a group. Today's convenience changes I feel turned the games community into the toxic mess it is as there is zero consequences for being an asshat. Sure it made the game more accessible for people with less time to spend playing it, but at the same time it killed the community feeling and opened the door for toxic behaviour.

    I think the best we can hope for is a fresh realm with no xp boosts. As nice as it would be, it will still fail due to flying mounts and other convenience items that ruined the community feeling. I really hope they just do a vanilla server and give us what we want. :(

    Yeah I don't care how many k-pop fans love Starcraft II or countries that have it as their national sport, but I still rather play Warcraft III and that's like what, close to 15 years old now?? :D

    The best possible news would be "we are going to dicuss how to...further down the road" and then insert..soon tm.

So if you played there you can continue from where you were at, these servers will open tomorrow at 17:00 i belive.
    They will also be releasing a totally fresh server sometime next year, they will have more info about this on the 25th.

    Yeah timing is kinda bad, but i guess the staff wanted to release it at a time when they can monitor and ??? it properly.
    Ill be playing with a few friends on the fresh server, as horde! Catch you ingame m8

    Won't this just get shut down like every other private server,, its not exactly subtle.

    Well its allways a possibility, but from what ive understood is that the servers are in Russia so i dont think they would care too much about getting mail from an American lawyer.
    But you never know whats gonna happen, but it seems that even if it does get shut down when the new server opens you can start where you left off.

    I'm thinking like "how long does one usually play an mmorpg these days, 3 months tops unless its good-old (live) wow that you never really abandon?" Right so if they shut everything down after half a year or whatevs, one will already have quit. Start is tomorrow, I am tempted but noone else is :(
