    WoW Classic will be based upon a ‘vanilla server’

    Too little, too late. I played WoW for years in the early days, ran my own guild, conquered Molten Core etc and while WoW has improved in ways over the years as it catered for more casual players, I think it lost that edge that made great items difficult to obtain. These days you can trip over and find an epic in your bag.

    They should have done this years ago. Time will tell how it pans out but I can't see myself returning to it as moved onto other things.

    Even though saying that I play new expansions when they come out for like a month lol.

    There's definitely a market, Blizzard have issued cease and desist orders against 2 different player run 'unofficial' vanilla servers in the last 12 months. In the second case they stated they wanted to work with the people organising it. This appears to be the result of that work.

    You could be right but I was talking about my own personal thoughts on it not saying there wasn't a market for it. Was referring that for me it was too little too late.
