No, the "Classic" chat option doesn't return it to the way it was. All it does is get rid of the always-visible line that you type in. And my dislike isn't primarily over the new look of the chat box-- it's over how chat functions now. If someone whispers me to sell me gold, that becomes the focus of my chat, no matter what I was doing, as one example. Blizz's vision, as explained by a Blue, was that we'd have all these separate windows open on our screen for each of the various conversations we're having. Therefore they decided we didn't need to have chat stick to whichever channel we manually selected. This has created problems, and again, it's all because someone decided that WoW needed to become a chat client. That's probably great for some people, but for those of us who log on to play the game rather than to use WoW as a way to network with people, it's more of a pain than a pleasure. Is it the end of the world? No. Does that mean everyone has to pretend they love it? Again, no.Roscoe, if you're one of the people that likes it, that's fine. That in no way makes any of my points invalid. I'm pretty sure the guy who says, "I disagree with you, so you're talking out of your ass", is the one who's actually talking out of his ass. Or, simply is one.
