For discussion of World of Warcraft: Classic only.

I'm really excited about this release. I originally played WoW in its golden age between Early 2005- Late 2007 and stopped playing a few months after Burning Crusade released to focus on university. Classic should be a nostalgia trip of epic proportions (especially now that I don't have to choose between playing and studying!).

Release August 27th

On that note: Who will be playing? Did you play between 2004-2007 and is nostalgia pulling you back? Is anyone interested in forming a guild?

Played in beta/release, as well as end of BC, and have been playing from roughly cata -> now, albeit very casually with the GF and her bro. Raided back in the good 'ol days though. Was fun breaking into MC for the first time. I still miss talent trees, and I still think blizz made a mistake dumping the early beta 'skill points/AAs'. I thought that was a fun idea.

Unsure if we'll do classic, maybe!

I'm not sure I understand the point of this. Isn't WOW still going? I played it back in the beginning but it was incredibly grindy/time consuming.

It's not for you. Vanilla WoW may as well be a different game from what wears the title today, for good or for ill. Azeroth was a pretty dangerous place in the olden days. You often needed the help of others, not just for instances, but even things as simple as completing quests in the overworld.

Without help, even retrieving a medal from a den of angry Murlocs can be a dangerous endeavor. But help people you would, so that there would be those on your friends list who could and would return the favor when you were in the same fix. It fostered community in a way modern WoW doesn't, and was richer for it.

I know it's not for me. I don't have the kind of time or desire to play an MMORPG. I was just curious as to why they were releasing it.

There's been an enormous demand for it for a few years now. Most people miss the community and RPG elements of the game which the retail version has deserted.
