Alchemistmerlin, that's my guild which was featured, Spectacular Death. We're not what's called "vanilla WOW" because I'm 70, as are 3 others in the guild, and we don't want to go back to being 60's. I've encountered many people who look off into the distance and say, "Back when I was a level 56, before patch 1.5...." and we listen politely and decide that we are better off with a dead zone at 3 feet so we can shoot mobs in stairwells. I would wonder, what's considered "Classic WOW"? Have a server that's just the way the game came out or do you add some but not all of the patches? It could be argued both ways.Since the article ran this past Tuesday, I've heard from many people who like the idea of running the old raids even though the loot isn't anything someone 62+ is going to use. There are a lot more people than I expected who are interested in revisiting the "vanilla WOW", not for loot but for the experience of doing it. I think a "Classic" server would have a large target audience. Many people talk to me about the lack of lore in BC endgame content. Lore appeals to a lot of people, not everyone, but a lot. My officers and I are very excited at the positive response to what we're doing. What it says to me is that the game is big enough to hold people who only want "classic" content as well as the hardcore PVP raiders fully purpled out, BT conquered and bored and looking to WOTLK.
