    World of World of Warcraft Classic has gone live

    But it is so popular that there are reportedly hour-long queues for servers.

    Re: World of World of Warcraft Classic has gone live

    I jumped in for about 45 min last night, before the world server crashed at around 11:45...managed to get to level 2 before that happened, I forgot how hard it is to tag mobs as a mage when its that busy

    Looking forward to getting back into it tonight - I really enjoy the original game mechanics, e.g. proper talent trees, more sensible levelling times, no built-in quest radar, weapon skills etc...but one thing I have been reminded of is just how inferior hte original blizzard interface is compared to modded UIs. Luckily most of the mods I used to use back then have been remade for classic, so just before the servers died I was able to get tha tback up and running which makes a huge difference! Not decided yet if I will stick to my "classic" mod setup or install the classic version of ElveUI just yet.

    Either way I expect the experience to be improved tonight as Blizzard have added more shards and spread the playercount better, so should be fun! Note I didn't see any queues at all on pyrewood last night, but that may be because the server kept crashing

    edit: the queue times seem to be highest on the PVP realms. I find that a bit odd, given that PVP in wow is an awful, boring, tedius waste of time for players and developers. The PVE servers seem to be OK.

    Ah yes, Classic, back when the Horde weren't responsible for most of the horrors and hatreds throughout Azeroth!

    Alterac Valley is the 1.12 version, meaning no reinforcements and you have to kill Drek'Thar or Vanndar. Back in the days of 2-6 hour Alterac Valleys because it was a proper war and not this namby pamby reinforcements trash

    You used to be able to play in the morning , go to school/ work and come back to the same game.
    Original wow was so amazing and then they got all the micro transactions and dumbed it down.
    Remember when getting into Molten Core was amazing and you had to farm all that dark iron plus heart of the mountain.

    No idea if they changed but early days you were server bound so they existed as real communities, where you got to know people.

    Not sure id have the will or interest to time sink all over again. PvP should be fun though.

    WOW gave me some of if not the most amazing gaming experiences ever, its only sad that there werent lots of competitors and MMOs to have evolved into something amazing in the 13 years since.
