    I hope they make the difficulty as it was in 1.12.1 or around that time.

    They are doing it full vanilla style too, no cross server, no raid finder no ez mode. But some QoL improvements sounds awesome.

    Where the old BG WoW crew at?

    Wewtaru, Berticus, Kuai...

    Or even people that used to play on Azshara, <ThoseGuys>, Fentre, Bahngo, Steve...

    I hope it's soon so I can stop playing on Elysium/Lights Hope.

    Shits so easy to implement. Make it exactly like the current private servers, they have it right.

    idk man I realize that rose tinted glasses are nice and all but I don't think I can live without stuff like the transmog system anymore.

    I still have ptsd from grinding to R14 in the original PvP honor system. Hardcore raiding back then didn't have shit on that 4-5 month daily grindfest and I had a dedicated team that ran with each other daily.

    Highly doubt they’d want to cannibalize their own expansion sales. Unless those servers are unlocked when you purchase the expansion..

    There's nothing rose tinted about it.

    Hop on lights hope, vanilla is a blast. It's so fucking hard lol.

    The friends I play vanilla with were all discussing models they could incorporate that would force people to sub, net a profit, and not cannibalize their current product.

    We thought of a "premium" wow subscription where you pay 1-2$ extra a month for Wow plus vanilla content. We'd all pay it happily.

    You wouldn't get all of the 20,000+ people playing vanilla for free, but you'd have a chance to bring in some of the millions playing retail live.

    I dont think thats the best way to go through it, I think having it included in the WoW sub, gives sub an extra value during content droughts or maybe the game becomes a crazy mess and you want something different.

    Wouldnt it be more difficult if they kept it at 1.0 balance? Your raid's dps being a fraction of what it should because of 8 debuff slots.

    What did you have in mind? Because any QoL can change the whole tone of the experience.

    Like even if the gameplay was the same, a Party finder system (not LFG), would be so different because thats just a different social experience than spamming chat channels.

    Never played WoW, like ever. Might give this a try when it comes out, just to experience it how it was when I couldn't back then. Probably won't like it but if I ever get on I'll bother you f**ks for some advice.

    It was a game you had to play with others, vs a game you don't need to play with anyone, due to LFG, unless you want to do Mythic raiding. I think the only QoL stuff they need would be map and quest locator and transmog improvements; everything else, assuming they actually have the code base to work with, could be like the old days. I'd love it if the old AV came back because that was a lot of fun; the only real 'war' I've felt in-game.

    If you guys want to try vanilla just go to lightshope.org

    And 1.12 is best wow. This is what they should use.

    Add-ons work in vanilla. Get questie and cartographer and you're set. Maybe postal. Don't need any other qol changes.

    Oh gotcha. I'd imagine the vanilla community would nerd rage over like, quest tracker stuff like how FFXIV/WoW is, but ultimately that's not what makes Vanilla special imo, its the social/community functions.
