This page has details on what to expect, including a new level cap, new dungeons & raids, an included character boost, and new social options. This video announces World of Warcraft Classic. They say to stay tuned for details. In the meantime, word is: "We’re pleased to announce the development of a “classic server” option for World of Warcraft. We’ll have more information to share in the future."

You're right though, you're just aggressive all the time.

No, I just don't let people like you escape without a taste of your own medicine first. It's not my fault you don't like what you see in the mirror.

Ugh. THis expansion seems pretty lame compared to....well, any of the other expansions. No new race. No new class. But you can sort of play WC3 inside WoW now, so...yay?

I don't know, Warlords of Draenor was offensively bad in so many ways that this at least seems like an improvement in the passion department, if not the feature one.

They've gone Everquest. Endless new expansions with no new tech. I think it's about time for WoW 2.

Leave him alone and go make your shitty videos that no one watches.

You bring passive aggressiveness to a new level. Literally in all your comments -- at least the ones I come across. There's a good to fair chance you have been bullied a lot in high school? I can imagine that such a hardship is the kind of ordeal that scars you. Your scar tissue is the seething anger that projects itself online -- where you are anonymous, and nobody knows you as the broken kid.

Get help.
Even though it's true does not make it any less sad.

I do care for yours. Ergo earlier analysis and suggestion.

You're right though, you're just aggressive all the time. Not sure why passive sneaked in there.

No, that's not passive aggressive, that's just aggressive. Learn the difference. You were being a dick to El Pit and I was a dick to you for it. Sorry that triggers you 'special snowflake'. I don't care about your feelings or existence.

He's making good points, kiddo. But I guess the name-calling triggered you real good, didn't it? You've got the skin of a snowflake.

I'm surprised that they haven't at least reduced the subscription fee. For me, I always buy WoW expansions and play it gleefully for a month, which is a shit ton of content, no doubt - but they haven't been able to hook me into paying subscriptions for back to back sequential months, in probably a decade.

I'd look forward to rolling a toon or two on a classic server, though. Cap at 60, Azeroth only, harder to kill mobs, slower progression. It was definitely a different beast then than it is now, it actually sort of seemed like a world (a real MMORPG) instead of a bunch of random zones all slung together...

Only a moron would think I was talking about that.

"Scammers", "morons" - and you take your assumptions and interpretations and discuss them instead of what others have written and then you call those people out on your own assumptions. Class act!

Ignored from now on.

Hmm... Lets look at my original quote:

"We want to scam our way around paying a subscription fee!"
Talking about people using an emulator to play WoW.

You then said:

Yes, I it is absolutely "SCAMMING AROUND A FEE" like the whole Guild Wars 1/2 is "SCAMMING AROUND A FEE"... LOL!

Which references a game without a subscription fee. Clearly not what I was talking about.

Perhaps you shouldn't talk about discussing what others have written because you weren't actually talking about what I was.

But I then responded, elaborating on what I was specifically talking about. And mentioned how you said you don't play subscription based games, which is fine, except that the games you would be playing (GW1/GW2 for example) are still legitimate game copies (not emulators).

Of course, you didn't mention any of that in this reply either. But keep making non-points. *thumbs up*

I simply don't play subscription games. If ActiBlizz doesn't want new people to play WoW - it is their decision. Whatever, I got other games to play without monthly fees (you know, those few games out there for SCAMMERS... Like pretty much 99% of all games available. Hilarious.).

Obviously, I'm not talking about GW1/GW2 type things that are built on the F2P model. Only a moron would think I was talking about that.

Blizzard charges for WoW. People created server emulators under the guise of "We want to play original WoW because that was the glory days!". More like, they wanted to not pay Blizzard their rightful subscription fees. Which is why most of those people won't sign up for the classic server. Because I can almost guarantee that Blizzard isn't going to put it out there for free, when it would compete with their own product.

What good is them going F2P with Classic? What could they possibly offer? They can't add loot boxes and such, as then it wouldn't be the classic experience... so there would literally be no way for them to make money.

You don't play sub games. Good for you, but you're still playing legitimate copies of games.

Oh please. "They want to charge for an old game!" There was a demand for the game. No one is twisting your arm. If you don't want to play it, no one is forcing you. As far as the subscription model for any game... they should do the continual updates, fixes, and maintenance free of charge? You know what it takes to support multiple millions of players?

*sheesh* Millennials!

 
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.

So GOG should stop selling older games?

Why? You still get value out of playing it so its still worth something. People just don't want to pay and used emulated servers because they could.

A better argument would be that they can make their business model on microtransactions but I hate that shit so I would rather they just charged me an honest dollar. Old or not if its fun then its worth money to me.

Ha. I never explored WoW with its major changes. I only played its original vanilla WoW.
