    Re: WoW Classic

    Not everyone gets the beta invite even if they do sign up, at the last one I signed up to play the beta but didn't get in, have got in this time around though. So not sure if its just certain players or open to all now

    Re: WoW Classic

    Looks like it is generally open to anyone who selects "WoW Classic" for their game type in the battle.net launcher and hits install and play. Only wanted a few gig of space, but I didn't get to play. Maybe tomorrow.

    Re: WoW Classic

    To correct myself and a little late now it was open to all, level cap was 15 though I believe. For subscribers its open for name creation and that's it, 3 characters max for now until the official launch in a couple of weeks.

    Re: WoW Classic

    I would love to recreate my experience of playing vanilla WoW when I was in my Uni dorms but I know I'm looking back with rose tinted glasses.

    It's funny how Vanilla WoW was seen as the easy MMO back in it's release...

    I never did get to play, and am still wondering if I want to get back into the time sink that is WoW

    The modern game has lots of elements that put me off to the point that I stopped playing.

    Re: WoW Classic

    Agree completely, I do have the latest expansion and I am max level but it goes on once or twice a month for 10 or 20 mins at a time, everything is so basic now, every single class has pretty much the same abilities now, ie everyone has a shield, everyone can aoe etc.

    I can't wait for the classic release, having played it recently, no markers telling you where the objective is brings the game back to feeling like you are actually exploring and more importantly that you feel like you have achieved something. Just look at the onyxia or molten core attunements, long quest lines that paid off in the end.

    There have been some improvements over the years I admit which makes things more easier etc but in the end I felt it got too easy.

    My character I created was a hunter, saw ammo again for the first time in years and forgot that you need a minimum range to use a gun and was called by a level 3 wolf, good times I also missed where you would have to carefully work out who you were going to attack, a group of 3 mobs together was a definite no, you had to pick them off, in modern wow I would say you favour your chances running into a group of 10 or so.

    It is a time consuming game the original wow but thats what I liked about it, sense of achievment etc.

    I don't think I will go back to full time raiding, those days are probably behind me but I will certainly enjoy the journey to 60

    Re: WoW Classic

    Ahh, you're tempting me back now

    I didn't even bother getting the last expansion, and didn't finish the one before. I think area scaling to your level just made everything a bit meh. Like the whole game was aimed just at people wanting to endgame raid (which I have never had the time for) and character levelling should be over as fast as possible. Crafting had become pointless, taking the auction house with it.

    Re: WoW Classic

    Again, absolutely agree, I remember in original WoW my first time getting to Lakeshire but needting to go back to Westfall for something and encountered Duskwood for the first time, I probably made it 20 seconds into Duskwood before running out and finding a safer way around because it was above my level. That's what made a good game I think, now as you say everything scales with you, takes away any suspense of what you might encounter imo.

    Also everyone can now mine the same node! Or gather the same plant, gone are the days where you can see the hate in a players eyes as you got to that rich thorium vein first lol

    There aren't many servers for classic WoW not sure if they are adding some later but both pvp servers are full as is one of the two pve servers. I expect they will have to add more.
