I heard that they don't actually have any old data from those days because all of the mechanics and numerical values were handled on the server side which got wiped since they didn't need them.

The private servers that you see are merely interpretations of what it may have been like, but it's hardly accurate.

So what Blizz probably doing is redesigning everything by looking up wowhead and the like to (hopefully) make it as authentic as possible.

No source, so take it with a grain of salt.

But if they did have full data on vanilla (besides client stuff like models and textures), don't you think it would have been out already?

Credit for being retarded?

The point is that they can never recreate vanilla properly because no one knows all of the values.

>>16528259

And why would they store stuff like HP, armour, spawn rate, density, item drop rates and damage values of a level 10-13 kobold (all of that stuff was handled by the server)?

For future generations?

That kind of forward thinking didn't exist back when Cata came out and they remade the whole world.

>>16528264

I don't give a crap about classic and it's going to be about as accurate (or likely even less) than what you got on something like Nostalrius because they have to make it more accessible for the current year audience.

like every other private server it's going to be based on 1.12 with progression.

>>16528255

==SUPPOSEDLY== They have a build of 1.12 laying around but nothing else. I say this SUPPOSEDLY

They're going to fuck this up, let's not lie. However classic will be a boon for the private server community if they truly have working 1.12 source. With classic being there they'd have more documentation with an actual client. It might lead to scrapping cores that you know but would in the long run end up creating a closer to 1:1 of the actual product in terms of mechanics

Because they want Battle.net integration, with your bnet ID, your friend list, their shitty launcher/chat program, and all that shit rolled into the experience. It's why they won't release a D2 remaster: they don't actually have the source code for that, and thus won't be able to let players who own the original D2 play with the D2 remaster.

>>16528255

They said they had all the information laying around and that when they initially tried to copy paste a version of 1.12 on their live architecture, everything worked well on the first attempt. I have no idea which streamer gave you your opinion, but he was wrong.

Played on Northdale, was a pretty good run before i quit after tier 2. I never was able to get past tier 2 in real vanilla because my server was bunk but I wanted to see if I could. Spent too much time playing up through tier 2 though it was fun on a pserver, so I quit figuring the ease with which I handled those raid tiers would mean that tier 2.5 and 3 wouldnt be too difficult. My guild is just about to down KT on ND so while i'm not there im satisfied that I could have.

>classic will be a boon for the private server community

Except servers are literally shutting down in response to classic launch. And the servers that do exist will have <500 people playing on them.

One of the things that saved pserver vanilla was the fact that they were global servers which meant that the world constantly had 10k+ people on them. This was great for recapturing the vanilla feel imo. ND launch had 14k people out the starting gate which was honestly an amazing experience, but they are going to "layer" the entire launch up until kazzak comes out which is fucking insanely retarded. Not to mention their phase system for content release means that DM will be out on release which makes MC even more trivial than it already is which destroys the joy of early game progression. In an experienced guild they will be able to steamroll MC within first week of launch in quest greens anyway, but the baddies will have all the DM loot they need to down MC content making the already trivial first raid tiers even more trivial.

Pservers are incredibly close to actual vanilla values, and the blizzard folks scoffing that they pserver people didnt crack some arbitrary variable to define where onyxia's breath rotation came from reeked of an increasingly nervous dev team who realized their game was very successfully cloned by enthusiasts.

On actual retail vanilla players were far more casual and laid back than autistic pserver spergs.

On my server there were less than 40 people on each faction at 60 by the time Dire Maul came out, and only one guild had even downed Rag by the time BWL came out.

Most people dicked around and enjoyed the ride. Instead of grinding hard to 60, you explored and did crossroads raids at level 30 for the hell of it, and when you finally did get to 60 you'd raid Ogrimmar instead of Molten Core.

Pserver fags who play 100 hours a week and only care about raid progression are the cancer that will ruin Classic WoW as well.

They also have to redo their server/client architecture due to massive changes that were implemented later. The vanilla WoW client downloaded and installed the game in a fundamentally different way than the modern client. After that they spend a bunch of time deciding what new features they're going to port back to vanilla, because they don't think people want a genuine vanilla experience.

My main issue with the more popular private servers was that they were overpopulated. The game wasn't designed to handle over 5k players online, much less 10k, much less 10k crammed into the starter zones. Even 100 players in the starting areas feels like way too much. As such, I fully approve of layering, especially if the alternative is to do stupid shit like leveling through exploring or making groups to kill lvl 5-6 mobs at lvl 1. Also, all of vanilla content is trivial. MC will be cleared in the first week or two because it's a fucking joke. Any guild with half a brain will aim to underman MC to get extra loot/bindings.

15$ is a price paid with the understanding that a major portion of Blizzard's profit goes towards creating new content. All of vanilla's content is already created, they don't have an army of artists or GMs to pay. This means that the 15$ a month price is more than what should be asked for. As for myself, I'll reluctantly pay that if means being able to play vanilla without chinks, buggy mechanics is there a single private server that has every Warlock spell and pet ability working properly? or just Rage generation numbers for Warriors/Berserker Rage?, corrupt GMs that sell gold/characters and create items, or the server randomly closing after a few months and thus invalidating my time investment.

Vanilla wow had overspawning for starter zones. Goldshire abbey had a respawn time of like 1 second on launch, but as soon as you went into the big world, spawns went back to the normal 5 minute+ timer.

Bullshit, unless you are a euro whose WoW release was delayed by three months compared to the NA release. That or your server was completely dead. Vanilla release was late Nov 2004, 1.3 which is DM was March 2005. That's plenty of time for even the mild nolifers to hit 60.

>Pserver fags who play 100 hours a week and only care about raid progression are the cancer that will ruin Classic WoW as well.

Raids are insanely easy. The real fun comes from the raiding guild rivalries that form on a server. Waiting at the BRM gates for your rival guild to show up during their raid time (after you quick clear your raid planned for that day) was incredibly fun.

>>16528641

I did MC before MC actually released back in the day. For those who aren't aware, you could actually zone into MC in 1.0 before the 1.1 release of the raid. The trash was heavily overtuned so the first pull which is two molten giants were incredibly tough and about all we could handle at the time since it was intended to be overtuned to prevent player intrusion. We farmed these two giants for t1 belts/bracers before 1.1 released. It was pretty fun. This is my experience playing real vanilla when pre-1.12 talents made things actually difficult. I agree that 1.12 talents made early raid tiers trivial, DM loot even more so.

>>16528680

Honestly, the only real problem with the high server pops of pservers came from the devilsaur mafias that formed (which were cool emergent properties tbh) and the really really campable vanilla black lotus spawns. To do any sort of t3 raiding you need to have 40 players flasked, and you only realistically got black lotus from AV pops. Unless you can AV queue hunt like you can on pservers, black lotus is going to be an absolute nightmare unless its instantly tradeable which is what I think is going to happen.

Also reminder that average 60 time back then was closer to 14 days played back then due to combination of lack of knowledge and lack of desire to focus grind to 60 instead of enjoying the ride.

>raids are insanely easy

You remember the raids as easy because pserver fags enter all overgeared with 1.12 talents, flasks, and having done the raid 9000 times before. When you go in with partial greens/t0 and having to take along level 59 people because that's all you can scrounge up its a lot harder. People people rarely used consumables like flasks back then. First time we used flasks was for our first rag clear. Not to mention most raids were both hilariously bugged and started with higher stats before being nerfed down for later versions like 1.12.

Also if you actually played classic, you'd know that Molten Core trash dropped t2 gear and not just t1 belts/bracers.

To reiterate: I played vanilla from open beta through WOTLK & I played Northdale.

I can tell you havent raided because raiding is insanely easy AND you require flasks. These aren't opposite thoughts. t3 raiding requires inordinate amounts of consumables but that does not make the encounters themselves difficult. The things that made naxx the difficult thing that it was was the brick wall of 4H and the 8 tank requirement and the need for frost resistance for saph.

>the first pull which is two molten giants were incredibly tough and about all we could handle

Please reread what I said. MC released in 1.1, but you COULD access the instance in 1.0 where the trash was overtuned compared to release because they were trying to keep people out of the zone. However you could kill the giants to get t1 drops like we did. Molten giant loot tables only have t1 belt/bracers you mongoloid, so your point about t2 drops is irrelevant.

Gear doesnt matter one lick in early raid tiers. The only thing that matters is that your group has mana potions. If you have demonic runes and major manas being used on cooldown, then your mp5 on average is greater than if you were in t3 gear without using consumables.

>rarely used consumables like flasks

I cleared BWL in vanilla but AQ40 is where my vanilla guild broke. We absolutely did use flasks. I cant speak to your server because it sounds like a dead server, but mine was a random med pop server and we definitely flasked up the tanks.

There was only one raid that was nerfed and that was Cthun, so I don't know what you're talking about.

This is absolutely true. Last few days some IRL friends who never played wow before started playing on a private server and asked me to join. They were just fucking around exploring shit and having fun, me on the other hand just wanted to go to max level and minmax shit. The old feeling just wasn't there, I knew every nook and cranny of the world and every mechanic. All the fun has been sucked out of it for me and it felt like a job. Worst thing is that 90% of people on pservers are like that. I wish i could play a mmo for the first time too and have fun.

Molten Core dropped t2 loot early on. It was nerfed later to drop only t1 stuff after a few patches. Saying gear doesn't matter but flasks are required is also contradictory. They're literally 2 means to the same goal of not having your tank die in 1 hit, and getting enough dps to properly burn down bosses like rag before you're overwhelmed by lava spawns (which oh, was another thing that was nerfed if you actually played the game. Original Rag shitted those things out like crazy)

MC always dropped t2 gear. Rag drops pants. If there was t2 gear dropped at another point we never encountered it because it must have changed rather quick. Farming MC trash in 1.0 always gave us t1 belt/bracers.

You're misunderstanding what I'm saying.

Tier 1: No flask or gear requirement. Consumables required.

Tier 2: PreBiS / tier 1 gear requirement, no flask requirement (Until Chromaggus, then tank flask is helpful). Consumables required for early clears.

Tier 2.5: Flask recommended, but not required until Cthun. T2 gear required. Consumables recommended.

Tier 3: Full requirements. Consumables mandatory.

DM loot was better than t1 loot for many classes. I know that as a priest there was only a few pieces of t1 loot that were worth using and that was only until BWL patch when the itemization for t1 changed and pretty much every t1 piece for priest becomes awful besides maybe bracers.

Lava spawns were a joke of a mechanic. I did it in vanilla as a tank and in a pserver as a healer. They were not overwhelming. A properly FR geared tank tanking lava spawns takes next to no damage at all. The only danger from lava spawns comes from one or two going around burning your raid's mana with their aoe mana burn. So from a healer perspective I just stood away from them. They were not as difficult as you imply.

pick one. also you're talking about post nerf spawns.

pre-nerf they spawned like 2x as many

Not to mention there was barely any worthwhile fire resist gear till they nerfed rag around BWL release. Other bosses also had majorly bugged mechanics, such as Garr going into perma-erage mode and respawning the adds, golemagg doing like 2x damage pre-1.4, etc.

And yes Molten Core originally dropped both t1 and t2 sets. This was changed in patch 1.4.

Actual vanilla WoW at launch was radically different from the private server experience that you're basing your assumptions on.

Idk what DM loot has to do with any of this, since the majority of people were raiding with half t0 half random shitty items anyway. Very different experience when tanks were constantly getting crits and crushing blows since they were running around at 300 def and no resists.

Listen, since youre being purposely obtuse I'll spell it out for you simply. The better your raid team is, the less you need gear to carry you through raids. Our tank did our first clear of MC on ND with a 2 hander (aka no shield). So FR gear for the tank becomes useful the less skilled your group is, but is hardly a requirement like it is in later raids. People get the gear anyway even if it isnt required just to make the time requirement for raids less so. My guild does MC in 30-45 minutes and we just run through without stopping to drink once.

Cucks tend to overlook that this WoW game isn't just a "subscription" service product. It use to require you to buy the base game which use to run you around $40 then you had to buy the subscription fee which is still $14.99 per monthly charge, in total costing you roughly $55 then ontop of that they'll release "expansions" every 2 years that'll cost you around $60, aka more then the base game.

So, every year on concurrent sub fee alone you'll be spending around $179.88 and when an expansion is released that year you'll then be spending $239.88. In other words: your spending more on a single video game in one year then most fucks would during a steam summer sale. Now add up how much income the company would receive from only 1k active subscriptions and you'll get why the company hasn't shut down the game even after the backlashes of WoD and Cataclysm expacs.

On the tanks, sure. At least for progress. On DPS or healers? Hell no. Every now and then some DPS would use a flask, but it was a rarity. Even using elixirs or major mana potions was rare unless it was progress and we were close to a kill. You were expected to use health pots and bandages to save your ass, and greater/super mana pots on harder fights.

>>16528920

Only Rag "required" consumables. Rag and Geddon needed the tanks to have FR gear and good defense gear. BWL required tanks to have a decent amount of MC gear, as well as your DPS to be in blues with a few epics.

>>16528961

This, but the raids weren't that difficult even with the shitty talents. Players just weren't as proficient.

Alright retard, listen up. You're full of shit. I'm sure you feel cool that your 'elitist' pserver guild managed to down MC with shit gear and that somehow gives you the entitlement to flex to us that you managed to be awesome in a game like 15 years ago (when in reality you probably just learned to touch your peepe). But some of us actually happen to be older and have played the game back then, and we can tell you that MC was fucked. Like, actually fucked. You downed some gimped shitty bootleg version of the instance. Congrats. Here's your silver star of achievement. Now let your boomer dad tell you how it was:

Vanilla Molten Core was fucking trash.

I played a Warlock. Nobody wanted me because my class was fucking useless aside from spawning people into raids. Dots took twice as long and did half the damage. I was two free kills in world pvp. RAIDS HAD 8 FUCKING DEBUFF SLOTS WHICH WAS ABSOLUTELY FUCKING GODAWFUL.

Elitist Jerks weren't a thing for another 6-8 months. Thottbot and Alakazam were just now starting to index and catalog what was in the game. Half the classes were woefully shit because blizzard had NO idea what they were doing and gear itemization was a dumpsterfire. Cloth gear with agility? fuck yeah! why? who the fuck knows!

Players at best had a general idea of what to do from guides on blizzard's forums, which were a complete cesspool of retards (that tradition still stands). There was no way for anyone to reliably test damage, so most players winged it. We had half working specs. Everything was complete trash that Blizzard was majorly reworking with every patch. Your class could play completely differently from patch 1.3 to 1.4.

By the way, you can LITERALLY check the patch notes and see the changes. https://wow.gamepedia.com/Patch_1.4.0

(and yes, MC did drop tier 2 stuff)

So yes, Molten Core was harder. No, you weren't better than us. Yes, we didn't know what we were doing, but neither did Blizzard. There was nobody around to hold our hands. Things were constantly changing and everyone winged everything. That was part of the fun and charm of the game.

The fact that you think you're some cool guy flexing on everyone for 'clearing' Molten Core in retail proves just how much of an absolute zoomer shitter you are. Sit down and shut the fuck up.

WoW has always been a game that was designed to be an 'easier' game then everquest but with more focus on 'instance content' and with less difficulty with everything else since tigole the jew thought the more instance content you add in a mmo, the better. Everything else should just be a fucking park since it's just filling until the instance content. That's why you keep seeing more instanced content in the game, instead of the opposite.

>making the death mechanic more punishing.

The biggest feature for the game for the kiddies has always been the fact that death wasnt that big of a deal in it. The moment they make death a big deal in the game like it was in everquest would result in a disaster worst than bfa since for most wowfags 'death' is already punishing enough to them.

No, Warlocks were fucking bad for the bulk of WoW. It was only halfway through vanilla WoW when spelldamage gear got big, and it took way longer before they doubled Warlock DoT dps and made death coil a lower cooldown with a special fear. Warlocks were legit free honor kills. Before the death coil buff they were just fucked whenever they got meleed cause aside from channels they don't have any talents to prevent casting loss from damage. And thanks to soul stone they were indeed two free kills instead of one, although you only get 50% of the honor the second time you kill someone. Warlocks were totally shat on throughout vanilla WoW, and even in 1.12 there are so many ways to rape a warlock without even trying. Just a Barov Peasant Caller will do it. Or really anything that spawns a pet if you do damage frequently. It's easy to shut their casting down. An overgeared 1.12 warlock might do actual DoT damage but for most of the game all your damage sucked ass.

The stuff he's describing is super familiar to everyone who played a warlock during vanilla. It's not just the experience of bads. Warlocks just didn't have the tools to be good when fear got nerfed like crazy and warlocks got nothing to compensate for it. Warlocks were just fucked. World of Roguecraft is nothing but a giant angry warlock vid explaining how fucked warlocks were and how retardedly OP rogues are because rogues kept pretending their class was fine and all the others needed to L2P (and they kept begging for more fear nerfs), so WoR was made to shut down the criticism that rogues were in a bad spot and everyone else needed to L2P.

PvP balance was just super fucking awful in WoW, especially for warlocks. Paladins had a shitty time too but where warlocks are 2 free honor kills, paladins are 0 free honor kills because bubble+hearth, and paladins take forever to kill.

How hard could it have been to just put something you already have made onto a couple official servers to see how receptive people are of it and seeing if its viable to put more resources into it?

At the point of 1.10-1.12 I think most everyone kinda got their shit together and warlocks finally got decent on meters.

PvP wise we had one sweet spot with Nemesis gear going into AQ where Soul Link just made you a fucking tank and a bane to all casters. Destro nuking also worked on warriors, rogues, and hunters.

We did eventually shine for a while, but yeah, definitely not for the bulk of vanilla. Which is why classic WoW should be fun. Because you can actually play a viable class from day 1, with properly itemized gear.

The only downside is that you miss out on the hijinks and the fun broken shit like windfury proccing itself and prolapsing buttholes in pvp. I never witnessed the shaman + sulfuras memes but I want to believe.

The wow team was making shit up as they went along. In general a lot of game devs never learned the basic shit you would have learned writing software for a bank of something. At best they would dump the source to a burned CD or tape backup and then it got lost after a while.

If you learned to write software outside of game company you could make more money working fewer hours so there wasn’t a lot of cross pollination.

I wouldn't say estimated, they used the source as a basis and ported mechanics and stats to the newer legion code which is just for things like rendering, connectivity to the server, etc.

I mean it's just about what private servers did, and those are also just estimations. You can already see this from the beta with out of combat regen and the like, they're way over what a lot of people remember.

Didnt see your reply because you didnt even quote correctly. Let's address your points.

First of all, my account is so old that in the Battlenet transaction history it doesn't even list my purchase of the collector's edition of vanilla wow. Added pic for proof.

Now let me tell you how Molten Core actually was instead of the retarded boogieman of an instance you make it out to be. Vanilla wow raid comps pre-debuff slot increase always brought TWO warlocks for curses. No raid in the fucking WORLD worth anything would let their warlocks dot up any raid boss, so you gave yourself away as a retarded shitter there. That's like saying a hunter would Serpent Sting a boss, give me a fucking break.

As for my credentials, I cannot find any proof of my original character, a night elf rogue on the Azgalor server. That is who I did all of my early game raiding with and he isn't even available to be found on warcraftrealms. However, the guild page for my original guild is still up. You can find that here: http://pias.dkpsystem.com/news.php They purged the old forums of a lot of the posts that were on there so my forum history is not available and neither is my name in the roster because its like 15 years ago, but that was my original guild. Interestingly, a paladin from my guild, Karmerr, was the one who did the reckbomb on kazzak that got reckoning hotfixed.

As for your claim that without EJ, no one could have optimized, that's a fucking joke. Mages were arcane very often back then until people realized how good frostbolt spam was, but in either scenario they only spam 1 spell over and over and over. You didnt need EJ unless you were a drooling retard. Warlock rotation? 111111111 shadowbolt spam and getting talents that made that better.

The oldest character of mine that is listed on warcraft realms is the SECOND character I made who I OTd BWL with on a different server. Pic related. So yeah, I raided in vanilla and I raided again in pservers. IDK how to check blizzard account history any further than what I provided so if I can fact check myself I will. I sent a request for my personal information from blizz so it should be back within a week. If the thread survives I'll update it.

Back to the original point, molten core was a fucking joke and you sucked dick and every single inch of your post reeks of a retarded shitter who had no idea how to play the game yet pretends that everyone had the same difficulty with the early raid tiers as he did. It wasn't true. You just sucked and your shit was all retarded.

>Windfury proccing itself

Sure it was nice on Shamans, but where it really shined was with WF totem and Warriors in 5 mans. An Arms Warrior with WF totem was spamming Cleave/WW with every attack, and spamming Hamstring (for more WF procs), WW, and Execute on every GCD. You had infinite rage and did more dmg at 40 with a Whirlwind Axe than most people did at 60 with tier 1 BiS gear. I remember doing a SM run way back in the days with 1 Shaman and 4 Arms Warriors, and the run was basically just that: us Warriors just kept running forward while the Shaman dropped WF totem, healed, and drank. The way I've described how it looked like to others was that we killed shit faster than a GM would using Death Touch.

Shit was hilarious.

Fuck Vanilla. If you were a rogue, mage, warrior or priest you had a blast, everyone else not so much.

For example I was an Alliance Warlock, and our only "defense" until Death Coil was Fear.

>entire Undead race had Will of the Forsaken, a 30 second fear immunity (also it was the most popular Horde race at the time)

>Warriors had Berserker Rage giving them a 30 second fear immunity

>Shaman grounding totems ate up any non-direct damage spell and still put the target on diminishing returns (hurr you could wand the totem - fuck off)

Just imagine the fucking despair at seeing an Undead Warrior who has a full minute of fear immunity. Or better yet, I'm sure the videos still exist - go watch World of Roguecraft.

But how about PvE?

>There was a limit on debuff slots, so playing an Affliction (DoT) heavy style was out

>Mages had rolling ignites creating massive damage for them, and thanks to debuff limits it was better for the raid if your only debuff was Curse of the Elements to boost the fucking mages, making you a token

So what was good?

>Mages and Druids were free kills in PvP

>The Dreadsteed vs everyone elses shit mounts

>With Searing Pain and high shadow resist gear I was a tank at the Twins in AQ40.

But does a shiny mount, or a unique fight justify getting cucked in raids or shit on by an entire race? Fuck no, and fuck Vanilla.

It was 20 secs until 1.6, then it was 5. Not to mention you could have speccd imp howl. If you're a warlock, you should have varied your pets and pulled out succy for seduce on warriors since they have tons of fear immunes. It baffles me how people ignored parts of the game then blamed balance.

Mages only went fire in AQ40 so you had two whole raid tiers of dominance, then mages shined in aq40, before warlocks dominated tier 3.

I'd agree with you, if there weren't a 99.9% chance that they'll take a huge shit on classic a few months after launch when everyone has sunk time into their characters and guilds. If there was any hope for them to not ruin the game and make mad shekels like they did for the last decade, it died with the fact that 'classic' isn't going to be a 'no-changes' experience that's unable to be paid for with tokens. As soon as it was proven that they had their battlenet hooks in the game it has become an absolute certainty that they'll repeat their past choices simply because it made them filthy stinking rich doing so. Is this the right decision from a business standpoint? Absolutely. Will the jewish overlords ruin the game because of it without a care in the world? Absolutely.

Will classic have a cash shop later down the line? Yes.

Will they completely change the retail version of the product if classic is more profitable? No.

The company is just hoping that adding Classic will boost subs for the WoW product as the sub count has only declined throughout the years. If WoW classic isn't profitable they will stop their support for it just like they did with Heroes of the Storm Esports. The company only cares about profits right now, they don't care about player feedback. Complaining about something isn't going to change their mind, if you want this company to understand you'll need to speak with your wallet. The blizzdrones will always support the company no matter what but their a small majority now due to them dying out both literally and figuratively. Change for companies like blizzard only comes when it hurts their bottom dollar.

Only thing that worries me about the current client polish is that they may have already fixed some of the jank aspects of vanilla.

I don't know if they'll fix alliance priests mind controlling Saurfang for the lulz or warlocks enslaving blasted lands demons. When I quit playing in Wrath, practically every elite undead was immune to being controlled by death knights, and I haven't played retail retroactively to check if those things are still possible.

The issue with how strong town guards are needs to be addressed too, because those could've been mind controlled as well. There were also, for example, grief spots in gadget where mages could nuke people in towns without guards reaching them.

People have played enough vanilla pservers to get the leveling down to a few days and MC will probably be cleared in the first week.

It's not hard to imagine why, it's because markets are an ecosystem. The video games market is composed of developers/publishers that look to what is and isn't successful as a guide on what they should be doing. Bad behaviour (like what Blizzard does with shitty balancing, micro-transactions, poor core game design, etc.) is a bad thing to reward with purchases because it tells other companies that they can get away with it. Very few games, particularly ones from big studios, are developed in a vacuum.

If people pay money for mediocre shit and say "it's not that bad" then the mediocrity becomes the new standard, and it will only push farther and farther. Years ago, the idea of getting charged out the ass for minor cosmetic upgrades (on par with what would once be included as bonus content) would be ridiculous, but people accepted it at first and then it only got worse to the point we're at now. It's the same principle elsewhere. Look at how they made Diablo 3 a bright, technicolour mess balanced around being a pseudo-MMORPG rather than the grim, dark hack & slash game that D2 was. It's because they were trying to copy what they thought made WoW so popular and apply it elsewhere. That's why people are upset, it's because they're watching millions of retards funnel insane amounts of cash to reward mediocrity, and they know that it's going to have a knock-on effect for the rest of us and things will never improve. Because companies don't have to improve if they're making loads of money for half-assed work.

This. And If you played a priest you would end up in ZG and MC around level 57. It wouldn't be common to sperg on flasks until Burning Crusade. Classic has somewhat of a reputation for hardcore raiding, but that was mostly AQ40/Naxx, the real hardcore raiding times were Burning Crusade. Which was also a very comfy Addon, everything looked like the devs were dropping acid.

No man, in the first days of WoW noobs (which was like 60% of your server) believed paladins were a tanking class. I think even the strategy guide referred to paladins as a tanking class. You had so many people for who WoW was their first videogame.

Was 20 seconds, then 5. It was originally permanent in beta though. And it can be used while CC'd to break out of 'em.

>Warriors had Berserker Rage giving them a 30 second fear immunity

10 seconds, but it can be used to break out of fears. Warriors can gain 20 seconds more fear immunity with Death Wish (fury warrior) and 30 seconds with Recklessness (1hr cooldown). If a warrior pops Recklessness your warlock is just dead.

>>16533435

>It was 20 secs until 1.6, then it was 5.

By that time they DR'd the shit out of it (they went through several successive patches of nerfing fear) and added PvP trinkets where damn near everyone could break fear with it.

>Not to mention you could have speccd imp howl.

NO YOU FUCKING IDIOT. Imp. Howl was a Burning Crusade thing. Did not exist in vanilla. If you ever played a warlock in vanilla you'd've known their spec, SM/Ruin, has no imp. howl.

>If you're a warlock, you should have varied your pets and pulled out succy for seduce on warriors since they have tons of fear immunes.

Succubus is not a popular PvP pet on alliance man. Will of the Forsaken breaks it. It works on non-undead warriors and then you maaaybe have bandaging time if you ain't bleedin and mortal strike still fucks your self-heal. But you can make some distance, cast curse of elements, trinket, and soul fire him for big damage & then DoT him. He'll probably die (if u have spelldmg), but not before killing you. Thing is, like half the horde is undead (druids & rogues could trinket too & good shamans had f%$#ing tremor totem), so alliance locks don't use succubus for world PvP much.

Btw fear, seduce, and howl of terror were all on the same DR by then.

Paladins were trash healers too dude. They didn't have a cast time reducing talent. All they had was mana efficiency, which was cool until the regular healers fixed their mana problems, and 50% heal threat, which was cool until tanks learned to output threat properly (besides who cares you're a paladin your healers should all have salvation anyway). Other healers had heals over time, party heals, and higher performance instant heals.

Don't forget all the blues adamantly refused to explain how WoW mechanics worked because they didn't want to reward theorycrafters or shit. People had to exhaustively test their abilities against random monsters to figure out how threat worked, how defense worked, how weapon skill worked, how stats like spirit and agility worked. Blizz refused to tell how anything worked so players had to figure it out for themselves. Eventually they started giving small bits of info here and there.

>Half the classes were woefully shit because blizzard had NO idea what they were doing and gear itemization was a dumpsterfire.

GG. So much fucking forum rage, and shitty CMs dismissed it all as whining crybabies. There were a lot of players who wrote in-depth, analytical write-ups on the state of mechanical balance and relevant issues, players would bump that shit, and blizz would ignore it all, never to read it. If you were on the class forums you remembered the names of Eyonix and Caydiem and it was nothing good. Blizz was fucking up royally left and right and CMs weren't actually fostering dialogue between devs and players as their job nominally indicated they would but stonewalling it and talking down to people. Caydiem got outed as a liar once people found out his main and he got ridiculed to death because he was a fucking noob casual pretending to have been a raider. No doubt Caydiem's idiocy factored into the feedback he relayed to the devs about game balance because CMs were constantly cued in on that shit and they always fucking dropped the ball so hard. CMs were hated, and with good reason too.

But then some masochistic cunts ruined it for the rest of us by demanding the tree be buffed until it was mandatory for min/maxed endgame content and the only way priests could farm for mats after that was waste hundreds specing back and forth or rolling whole new characters.

Mark Kern has done a couple of streams playing the classic beta super casually while retelling dev stories about the making of original Vanilla. According to him, they always had the game code, but they didn't have a lot of numerical server-side data like spawn placements and various damage numbers. All of that stuff they had to rebuild, which they did originally by looking at Nostalrius' numbers until they came up with a better way.

Blessings & auras. Paladins were buffbots with ez heals. In the early days when everyone had crap gear with no +healing, bad mana/5, and tanks that couldn't hold aggro, paladins were good healers too.

>And to some extent, that's a good thing. You don't want an extreme where there's no information anywhere and everything is obscure, but you also don't want every mechanic explained in details

You do. A lot of builds and strategies depend on subtle mechanical interactions.

>Anon…

Wrong as fuck m8. Trouble was, it was garbage for most of vanilla. If Drain Soul didn't kill the mob with its own tick, IDS would not proc. Then when they addressed that it still wouldn't proc if a source other than the player killed it, like your pet. Finally they just made the damn thing proc if the target died for any reason while being drained. That took forever. Warlocks sucked in vanilla.

>Hell, most players on private servers don't realize that now.

Because you don't need it anyway. Life Tap + Bandages works fine, and you have Drain Life and Siphon Life anyway. If you're UD you have Cannibalize too. And with 1.12 mechanics health/5 (like demon skin & demon armor) finally works in combat.

Lightwell and Spirit of Redemption is still fucking useless though (SoR can be useful in PvP I think). Agree that respec fee sucks ass. One good thing about playing a Warlock in vanilla is that you never ever needed to despec from SM/Ruin. It was your raid spec, your grind spec, and your PvP spec.

>or rolling whole new characters.

Yeah that's that way to go. Pick best grinding class, give it gathering professions, and just grind on it. But you'll still want to spec out of raidspec with your main if you want to use that raid loot in PvP.

Depends on class.

I prefer Orc for Warlock, Undead for Rogue and Mage. Also class strength changes depending on gear level. At low and mid-geared rogues are annoying so orc racial is great, however later on Warlocks and to a lesser extent Spriests become gods of PvP so Undead racial is more useful.

>>16550539

>paladins being great tanks in TBC

They were good on one fight. *One*. 1. A single fight throughout TBC. Morogrim Tidewalker. And the pathetic thing is that a HOLY PALADIN in a mix of defense/healing gear was better at the job than a Prot Paladin was. Everywhere else, Warriors and Druids were better.

>but muh Hyjal trash

Prot Paladins were EASY to tank with in Hyjal. But they still were far worse than Warriors/Druids, and they generated a hell of a lot less threat, and they took a hell of a lot more damage, and were a hell of a lot more useless when the boss rolled around. Sure, they worked, but you could also have Moonkins tank Gruul and Rogues evasion tank Mother.

>but muh heroic 5 man tanking

Setting aside the fact that Paladins had to drink after EVERY SINGLE PULL and made the run take two to three times longer than with a similarly geared and skilled Warrior/Druid, you have to understand that Paladins usually would wind up taking around 50% more melee damage than either Warriors or Druids. Why? Compared to Warrior: no Demoralizing Shout, no Thunder Clap, less raw damage reduction. Then you have no Spell Reflect, no Disarm, no interrupts, no movement skills to kite with. Compared to Druid: no Demoralizing Roar, laughably low armor/HP pool. Then there's no self-healing between pulls or pre-healing before pulls, no interrupts, no defensive cooldowns that don't drop hate. But you're gonna say "but muh threat!". Well Paladin threat is fucking shit. Even if you slap Salvation on every one in the group, it's still magnitudes worse than what a Warrior or a Druid will do. Every DPS spec will need to hold back or pull hate. And if they do pull hate, LOL SHITTY PALADIN TAUNT THAT DOESN'T WORK HALF THE TIME BECAUSE THE MOB USED A RSTS SKILL WHILE YOU CAST YOUR TAUNT. And you can't pre-emptively taunt mobs with Paladins to prevent hate loss from being CCd by stuff like Gouge like in Mana Tombs or Scatter Shot like in Old Hillsbrad.

Fuck Prot Paladins in TBC. And anyone who thinks otherwise is either being contrarian, has never seen a halfway decent Warrior tanking, or is playing on Warmane where dungeon/heroic/raid mobs do 50-75% less dmg than they should.

As for the changing balance in Classic, they'd need to make Classic into a powerhouse and a huge money maker. Then they'd need to make separate realms with the changed Classic experience. I don't see any Blizzard going that route because "it'd be confusing for our players if we had Classic realms and re-imagined Classic realms!". And finally, fuck Prot Paladins.

All they had going for them was shadowmeld and then hope nobody looks your way because with your super low racial stealth level (which breaks if you move), you're merely hard to spot from a distance, but still visible if someone pays attention.

IIRC they did a lot of weird shit late in beta. I think that's when the EQ idiots took over and the original wow designers left? Anyway, really late in beta they suddenly wrecked spirit, wrecked paladins (paladins in vanilla are a melee class with zero attack skills and no charge/sprint), removed invis from mages (shame imo, there were better ways of handling that, like making it a short duration on a 2min cd and adding it as a second 31-point arcane school capstone), and did a bunch of other stuff I don't remember.

You clearly played with retarded Alliance tankadins that could not talent properly. Until T6 gear Feral was objectively the worst tank as they could not pot/hs reliably, had shitty Swipe as only AoE and had no real damage reduction abilities that Warrs & Pallies had with former having dmg reduction from def stance as passive + LS/SW as active while the latter had similar dr from RF as well as passive shield wall from AD whenever their hp went below 35%.

While you are right in saying that Prot pala had less DR available in comparison to prot warr, it was not as bad as youre claiming if they had proper spec (aka 2 or 3 points in Pursuit of Justice depending that reduced their chances of getting hit by any spells in the first place).

Most likely you dealt with retards who either had horrible spec (aka 5 points wasted in Reckoning while having 0/5 Ardent Def in case of squishy shitters or 0/5 in 1h specialization that boosted all of their dmg) or did not use the BoJ libram. That BoJ libram actually made geared tankadin better than prot warr for many boss fights since it allowed them to be uncrushable for lot longer than Warrs (8 charges of HS in comparison to 2 from Shield block). Other shit you complain about (aka low armor/hp) is result of bad gearing choices, since it tended to be on par with similar geared Warr with main difference coming from lack of stats from having libram instead of ranged wep. Your alliance is showing since Belf Paladins had 2min aoe silence as racial that gave them mana from their other stackable racial which allowed them to keep on going for long periods of fight. Even for alliance the "drink after every pull" is retarded hyperbole unless you were dealing with literal brainlet that did not know to use downranked version of consecration (rank 4).

Tankadin also had advantages that neither Feral or Prot warr had, such as ability to cleanse everything but curses from themselves (or others) in 1 button ability on top of being able to ignore roots and any other form of movement reduction shit in form of freedom. In 5mans the blessings & particularly Salv mattered lot more until you could just cheese everything with IQD badge gear as Tankadins did not need mandatory pocket ccs to be able to hold aggro like Warrs & Druids did.

tldr: You are butthurt alliance player shitting on class because you played with retards that could not play Tankadin properly.

>feral gearing

Ferals could come fairly close to the armor cap in T5 gear, on top of having far more avoidance and HP than Paladins or Warriors. They got crushed more during raids, but against most bosses Feral Druids would tend to be less susceptible to burst damage compared to Warriors. Warriors had the issue of dying to Shield Block right as the boss hits > boss attacks > boss attacks before Shield Block is back up and crushes, a scenario made even worse when factoring parry haste. Paladins tended to be less worried about getting crushed or parry haste, but they needed to sacrifice a ton of stats on getting uncrushable. Usually in the form of less HP/armor/avoidance.

>not being able to hot/HS reliably

They were able to handle that by turning off auto attack and using pots between boss swings.

>Swipe as AoE threat

In heroics, it didn't matter too much since you absolutely wanted to avoid fighting multiple mobs at once, which is why CC was so important in TBC. Swipe was worse at AoE tanking once you were grossly overgeared, but Bears made up for it by generating stupid levels of threat on single targets/tab targeting with Maul and Mangle. My experience is that Bears generated far better threat than Paladins outside of pure AoE situations like the flowers at the end of Botanica or the tables in Moroes' room.

>no flat damage reduction

That didn't matter until late T6 and Sunwell, at which point Paladins and Warriors could hit/get close to the armor cap under Inspiration. Before that, Bears simply took less damage per hit.

>Ardent Defender

It rarely saved a Paladin's life, since it only kicked it after the Paladin was below 35%. The Paladin had to be below 35% health (with their lower health pool) AND they had to survive the hit. It was one of those things that looked better on paper than it did in practice.

>Paladins having less DR than Warriors

Paladins get 6% DR from Imp RF and 4% from Spell Warding. Warriors get 10% from D.Stance and 6% from Imp. D.Stance. 4% difference for physical damage, and 6% for magical damage. Both are very significant numbers when it comes to tanking.

>Pursuit of Justice

Having 2-3% chance to avoid spell damage is pretty insignificant. Evasion becomes better the more you have, but is also worse the less you have. Going from 0% avoidance to 3% avoidance doesn't mean much. The way I see it is this: if the dragon breathes fire on the tank for half of the tank's HP every 10 seconds, healers will have a heal queued up to land on the tank as soon as the breath goes off. Having the breath be resisted generally won't mean much. I can go into more specific details on why it doesn't matter much, but it would be a case by case basis.

>talent choices

Non-sequitur. Poor talent choices don't have much of anything to do with Prot Paladins being played perfectly being worse than the other two tanks.

>complaining about low armor/HP

Like I said above, Paladins had to sacrifice more stats to reach uncrushable status than Warriors did. A Warrior was able to be uncrushable, while being able to use gear/gems/enchants with more stam and armor on it. In other words, once Warriors became crit immune, they could start stacking armor/HP/avoidance without worrying about threat. Paladins had to get a fair amount of block rating, while wearing some spell power items. Result was that Warriors had more bonus stam on their gear, more base HP, and could wear gear with bonus armor, while Paladins generally had to make sacrifices to tank effectively.

>Blood Elf Paladins and mana

The amount of mana they gained was a drop in the bucket compared to how much mana Paladins spent and received from healing. I never noticed a difference between the amount of time BEs and Alliance Paladins had to spend drinking. And the drink after every pull is neither an hyperbole or a meme, it was a reality that Prot Paladins had to drink frequently in heroics. Even with SoW/JoW/BoW, and conservative use of mana, Paladins still had to drink every 2-3 pulls on a good day, or every pull on a bad day.

>Prot Paladin advantages

Of course they had advantages. Druids had advantages over Warriors, and Warriors had advantages over Druids, and both had advantages over Paladins. The issue was that Paladins had generally weaker or more niche advantages, on top of being generally weaker in terms of survivability.

>Salv mattered

Warriors and Druids generated so much more threat than Paladins that Paladins had to rely on Salv to compete. Especially on single targets.

>mandatory pocket CCs to hold aggro

You needed CC to survive in heroics. Even T6 geared tanks needed CC in most heroics in order to not fall over dead. But I do agree that when you were grossly overgeared, and on the pulls where CC wasn't a requirement, Paladins had an easier time getting initial aggro on multiple mobs than Warriors or Druids did. And I said easier, but I didn't say they were better at it. It just took a hell of a lot of work for Warriors and Druids to do it well. But when Warriors and Druids did it well, they were better than Paladins. It's the same concept as tanking Hyjal: you had Prot Paladins do it because it was easy, not because it was better.

PS: I played an Alliance Paladin for most of TBC. I healed and tanked, both 5 mans and raids. Then I rerolled Warrior to main tank for a friend's Horde guild. The difference between tanking as Paladin and Warrior was astounding. I already knew Paladins were shit from trying to tank with them, both before and after the multitudes of talent improvements that Paladins got throughout TBC. Similarly geared Warriors just took less damage, died less, and generated more threat. You're not the first person to get upset at having Prot Paladins being called bad in TBC. Tank balance was a complete joke up until I quit in Cata, and from what my friends who kept playing, it was and still is a complete joke up to this day. Warriors were the gods of vanilla, Warriors and Druids shared the domination of TBC, Death Knights broke Wrath.

>I forget, but a lot of trinkets do not cover seduce afaik.

Trinket vs Warlock list:

Warrior: None

Shaman: None

Hunter: None

Rogue: Both Fear and Seduce (Rogues really needed buffs against Warlocks)

Mage: Fear only

Priest: Fear only

Warlock: Both Fear and Seduce

Druid: Both Fear and Seduce

Paladin: Fear only

Note that on any given PvP server something like 80% of horde mages and priests are undead, and thus have WotF. Shamans have Tremor Totem (which breaks fear and charm effects in an aoe in regular pulses), Grounding Totem (which will cause your CC to fail and DR anyway), Earth Shock (which will interrupt your cast), and Searing Totem (which can inflict enough casting loss to make it impossible to cast fear anyway if the shaman does damage rapidly enough). Also the initial pulse on Earthbind Totem can be used to knock rogues and succubi out of stealth/invis by debuffing them. Warriors can also be undead (they usually aren't) and have Berserker Rage / Recklessness / Death Wish (if Fury) for fear immunity, but have no way to get charm immunity without playing undead, unless you count Skull of Impending Doom, Restorative Potion, or Shadow Reflector trinket (if they are insane Crystal of Zin-Malor trinket can also be used, but that stunt only started catching on in Burning Crusade when combined with resilience and a HoT the damage would become negligible, and in early WotLK Blizz removed this trick). In group PvP Paladins can become effectively immune to seduce by spamming Blessing of Sacrifice (and they can become immune to everything with Divine Shield). In solo PvP, they would die regardless of whether or not you used a Succubus. A hunter can do damage rapidly enough (combined with their pet) to make a warlock unable to get off fear, but against Seduce their only weapon is to have their pet intimidate (BM spec) the succubus and stun her out of the seduction channel, although she can re-seduce.

If you're playing Horde Succubus is viable for world PvP. If you're playing alliance, it's not.

Addendum: It's fun to note that Warlocks have one of the most worthless PvP trinkets, as theirs removes fear, charm, and polymorph - all CCs from classes warlocks do not need trinkets to win against (esp. if the Warlock is undead or running with a Felhunter or Succubus or equipping a Spellstone) - mages, priests, and other warlocks. The mirror matchup is one where both sides will have the same trinket anyway (and the UD warlock has the advantage). The only matchup it can really improve is when you trinket out of a Warrior's Intimidating Shout (assuming you're not UD in which case you don't need the trinket at all).

The guild that hosted the run was hyped up at "becoming the with the fastest MC clears on the server!". This blatant display of ignorance has been a common re-occurrence on every private server I've played on. I'd say that less than 5% of the players I've ran into on private servers were above decent.

Yea i call bullshit on that one, same as Nost claiming they had 15k people during their peaks which majority of people with brain know its impossible on a vanilla server (core shits itself when it goes over 5k people and shuts down when it reaches 6k players).

After Nost betrayed their own playerbase and later on gave the core to Elysium we saw that they were using 2.5x multiplier for the server population meaning they were faking the population numbers.

>Pservers are incredibly close to actual vanilla values, and the blizzard folks scoffing that they pserver people didnt crack some arbitrary variable to define where onyxia's breath rotation came from reeked of an increasingly nervous dev team who realized their game was very successfully cloned by enthusiasts.

Ndale doesnt cash shop like Warmane though. The mods of Ndale 100% were paid off by the guild Progress though.

As for population, Ndale has a huge international population. You dont ever see 14k online at one time anymore, but on Horde, the massively outmanned faction, the massive cities were bustling like crazy at all hours because each region going to bed meant the next was coming online. The chinese presence was enormous for example. Probably equal amount EU/NA + CN so the 14k makes sense.

It has big pop but defo not 14k, first of all Mangos core cannot handle more than 5 to 6k people unless the developers put shitload of money to push the core even more, second of all if they did the first thing your view distance would suffer, with 14k people online you wouldnt be able to see more than 12-15 yards infront of you in open world.

Subscription fees in games are an extremely archaic system and needs to die already. In the past it was understandable when internet speeds were limited and the hardware was weaker, but now it does nothing but pad the annual revenue for the publisher while providing nothing in return for the game itself. The only other game I can think of that has such a system at the moment it is Final Fantasy XIV and when I ask why people are okay with paying for it, they say it's either worth it or that it keeps the quality of the playerbase high which is a fair point and well made.

It feels that every consumer industry is attempting to move away from ownership and instead offering subscription based solutions for their products as well, even in fucking cars demanding some sort of retarded subscription service while making maintaining them harder and more difficult for the average customer.

Companies are slowly trying to phase away ownership and independence of their products; most products now come with a chain that shackles them to the seller, which the company then yanks when they want more money.

TL;DR convenience has a subscription fee, don't fall for it anons

I wouldn't say the 'best' system, but out of all of the systems thus far it has been the most fair. Considering that company selling this shit is inclined towards making more money consistently, I'd ideally prefer to appeal their sense of rationality over immediate greed by offering a steady trickle of shekels for a level playing field offset by my own in-game effort, than a free-for-all wild wild west of p2w (i.e seeing who has the most money to throw at a company so that they can completely ruin the distinction between fantasy world and reality right from its inception)

Ideally you need to find a system that favours equal opportunity from the start for the players involved, without being a massive waste of money for the company behind it. The truth is that it'll never happen because the system is tailored to where the money is. That speech given by dice years ago about the free battlefield title explained to a t. that people a) like to buy advantages, and b) liked it about 700% more if they could buy them without their opponents being explicitly informed of their advantages. Meaning the reason this cancerous shit exists is because people are fucking scum who can not, and WILL not permit a system of merit to exist even in fantasy.

Not hyped because I've played classic on a pserver for quite some time anyway but still it's the best thing happening to WoW since Burning Crusade and I'll probably play it at least a little because it comes out when I actually will have time for it.

Classic was cool because you were actually doing shit in the world rather than bouncing from one end of Dalaran to the other one while waiting for raidinvite and shitposting in /2 and /4

Just a reminder that anyone complaining about dire maul is a complete retard as in Vanilla, Rag wasn't killed until over a month after DM was released.

Meanwhile they ignore 1.12 talents, nerfed ubrs/stratholme/scholo, and the increased xp that world mobs give. These things are what will trivialize content. Back in the day, mages couldn't even AoE level the way they do now on private servers, as arcane explosion had a 1.5 second cast time unless you put 5 talent points into it.

The reason people complain about DM being on launch is that it partially invalidates the other dungeons. You get your the 2-3 items you need out of Strath/Scholo/LBRS and then spam run DM with a dash of UBRS. And BRD forever if you're melee.

>Subs are by far the best system for MMO.

No, they're not.

The modern day audience for MMOs only pay for a month or two then stop because they'll usually have accomplished what they wanted too by then. But in that span of time you'll only roughly have an extra $30 per person playing on your sub only product. So if you have like only 10k active subs for 2 months, it'll be below the million mark which isn't good if your product does essentially cost millions. Meanwhile the Buy to Play model with a cash shop is both alot more profitable as creating 'content' for the cash shop is almost as easy as changing textures on already existing models and it's alot less expensive for the modern day audience due to them actually only needing to buy the game and any 'expansions' released that year. Most of the revenue earned in a year will ultimately come from the cash shop though, mainly whales who spend ridiculous amounts per month with the most profitable things being "Battle Passes", "change tokens" aka name/ race changes, and Housing crap. If you release an expansion for any game you'll always see an uptick in pop count, regardless of what product it is. What really matters is how many active users per year you have, since the more active users you have the more revenue you'll have. But if your products pop count is below a certain mark then investors will jump ship and so will the players too, so this is why such a thing isn't normally advertised. As of late though there has been a growing trend of users not wanting to pay for a sub fee so game companies have now resorted to giving them rewards for being subbed in their sub only game, from FFXIV veteran rewards to even WoWs dreadwake mount. The sub only mmo just isn't that appealing anymore to the modern demographic, everyone wants to just buy the game and play it. That's why the "best" system for mmos is the b2p model as you're still allowing users to just buy the game and play it (just as they wanted) but your also earning a steady profit from your cash shop. I'm aware cash shops are a plague but the fact is, is that whether you like it or not they are a very profitable feature to have in your online product in this age of gaming.

>>16595664

Sheeps would pay the sub price gladly if the game was popular enough, even without any cosmetic microtransaction fuckery. The problem is that nobody wants to invest either the money or the time into making a truly great MMO. Why waste 10 years of development time and hundreds of millions of dollars to make an MMO when it has a chance of failing to be the next WoW? Better to go with the asset-flip mentality: have your devs and engineers shitting out a fresh game/expansion every 8-10 months, and then have your artists make new skins and models all year long to print money for the company. Devs can get as starry-eyed-doe'd as they want, they'll quickly have to face the reality that making the type of MMO that would make gamers willing to pay a sub fee takes a tremendous amount of effort.

Do you realise private wow servers are merely emulations of the real thing? Just because they have sniffed packets exchanged between server and client doesn't meant they have the source code.

Not him, and obviously they're emulated, but after years of progress they're easily just as good as the retail vanilla back in the day, both in scripting and in mob values.

All of the content in 'classic' wow is just WoW questing with some pvp tossed in and only 4 raids. The rest of it is just Instanced Dungeons which in total is 28 and nearly all of them have quests tied to them as well, along with the quests being tied to your class too. There was alot of fetch quests as well, mainly created as either a filler quest or a quest that's designed to lead the player to another spot/zone.

If I recall correctly there was about 1000 total quests in 'classic' by the end of it, give or take. By the end of Wotlk the end eventually got creatively bankrupt and the quests they were officially adding in only made this more evident, especially when they add in a quest named 'fetch'.

> WoW. Why should I?

No, it's not worth even playing since there is other mmos in the genre that do a better job as a mmoRPG then this shitshow ever did. Your going to be seeing some massive hyping by blizzdrones soon for Classic WoW because they're on a massive Nostalgia high. But this high will crash hard after the classic re-launches, You'll also be seeing a few streamers playing it during the launch as well who 'might' have been paid to play it by the company.

Classic is less about the content and more about the social aspect. Most of the raid fights are pretty bad, the quests are boring, and the combat is pretty mindless unless you're a Holy Priest 5 second rule or a tank. The dungeons are varied and interesting, and most of them are more than just trash filled hallways connecting boss rooms together. The group PvP is amazing, and is surprisingly well balanced. But in the end, the only selling point is the MMO part of it: you get to know the people on your server and they know you. There's a certain familiarity that forms after a while, which turned the original WoW servers into small communities. If you don't care about that and you'd rather queue for your dungeons, then don't bother with Classic.

>>16612454

>easily just as good as the retail vanilla

Oh please. Nostalrius, Elysium, and Kronos all had a ton of issues which made them quite different from what vanilla was. The biggest one being the huge population of these realms, which went against the community building aspect of vanilla.

I was looking for a video for Brutallus quotes, and saw a kill video from the Warmane TBC server. The difference in tank damage between that Warmane server and the actual TBC experience is crazy. First video is Warmane, rest are actual TBC videos. Saying that private servers, either vanilla or TBC, are close to what we had on retail is disingenuous.

No significant ones. Several years ago Elysium/LH and Kronos weren't as great, but nowadays there's nothing wrong with them.

The huge population issue is real, but it's only on LH; Kronos usually didn't exceed 3-3.5k people, which was about what most 'High'-pop realms had during peak times in vanilla. I played on Laughing Skull (US) back then, and remember quite clearly.

Next, by linking to warmane, you're the one being disingenuous here. We were talking about vanilla, not TBC. It's well-known amongst the pserver community that tbc servers were notoriously shit. Gummy's server was pretty good, and nowadays allegedly Netherwing is decent, but other than that there haven't been any non-shit TBC servers. You can't link to TBC servers in a discussion about vanilla servers while simultaneously claiming the person you're arguing against is being disingenuous; you're the only one who is.

I made a Hunter on Chink's Hope a few weeks ago because I was bored as fuck. Growl was retarded, I just couldn't pull aggro off of my pet, no matter what. I ran a Deadmines, and used a single Growl on Captain Greenskin when he was at 20% health and my pet pulled aggro - and I had my pet attacking the adds until they were both dead. Last I checked, mobs on Kronos and Chink's Hope still had their swing timers counting down while casting, which meant that casters mobs got instant swings off as soon as they finished casting. Mob pathing being shit, skills not working properly/having inaccurate values, mob damage being off Kronos was infamous for this, elites in RFK/RFD/SM hitting for 20-30 dmg, and worst of all Paladins on Nost having AP scaling on their spell. I had too many arguments with retards crying about Ret Paladins being good in vanilla and pointing at Nost as a reference. "No you're wrong and you're shit, Ret Paladins were amazing in vanilla, look at how much DPS I'm doing on this private server!".

>Netherwing is decent

It has a built-in half second lag on actions. I had 250-300ms back during vanilla/TBC/WotLK, and I can say with absolute confidence that TBC was significantly more responsive and smoother to play than that piece of shit Netherwing fake lag. Also,

>Netherwing is 100% scripted, come play on our server

>mobs in Mana Tombs are fighting each other

>every dungeon has multiple major bugs

>stuff they advertised as working flawlessly didn't work at all, most notably the Gnome ganking quest in Nagrand

In any case, I was making a broad statement about "private servers being accurate", which in my experience is laughable.

First, go make a hunter on Kronos real quick, because I have a 60 hunter there, and I can pull aggro with a single fucking multishot even after my pet building aggro with growls and attacks for 10 seconds.

Next,

>Last I checked, mobs on Kronos and Chink's Hope still had their swing timers counting down while casting, which meant that casters mobs got instant swings off as soon as they finished casting.

Fair enough.

Next,

>Mob pathing being shit, skills not working properly/having inaccurate values, mob damage being off Kronos was infamous for this, elites in RFK/RFD/SM hitting for 20-30 dmg

This shit again? Several fucking YEARS AGO, some mobs in RFD were tuned improperly. They've been fixed for years, and yet the one fucking video made by the guy way back then still gets brought up as evidence today. Are you actually joking? No, the values aren't inaccurate. 99% of the whole

>waaah kronis is inaccurate

shit comes from the fact, admitted by the LH devs, that LH overtunes its' content on purpose to make it harder. They've explicitly stated that they do this, and then when LH players come to kronos and see it's not overtuned anymore but just tuned normally, they cry out 'undertuned' because they're retards who can't form a single logical thought.

Can't confirm the ret pally issue on LH, but it doesn't work that way on kronis, although a ret pally with hand of rag and t2.5/pvp set can still destroy people decently. Without gear though they're just mobs.

Next, you'll notice I said allegedly when I brought up netherwing. I played it to level 12 and gave up because it kept crashing the entire first week, and never went back. That's why I used the word 'allegedly', to indicate that I hadn't tested it myself.

And regardless, you cannot use tbc private servers as evidence in an argument about the accuracy of vanilla servers.

That's my point, Chink's Hope, Nost, and Kronos all have inaccurate values. Kronos is too little, Chink's Hope is too high.

>Ret Paladins

That was on Nost, I don't know if it carried over to Elysium/Chink's Hope.

>Netherwing

And that's why I corrected you, because I made the mistake of toughing out the crashes. I was one of the first to hit Outlands and realized that the server was in a state so bad it should have been laughed at if they had said it was an alpha test, as opposed to an actual launch.

You claim that Kronos is too little; while perhaps there are some negligible variations, they sought to have it be accurate to retail vanilla, whereas LH intentionally overtuned it, so the two aren't the same. And I disagree that kronis is too low, based on having played vanilla back in the day and watching plenty of videos comparing it when I started playing again on kronos.

I mean your one example of the RFD mobs, I remember that. It was already fixed by the time I had started playing there, and yet people still kept bringing it up. If Kronos was really undertuned, and not just in the minds of some retards, then it would take no effort for them to have found other mobs who were similarly bad, and video it, and yet it's only the one video from RFD which gets posted over and over.


f5f23d  No.16613040

>>16613026

It doesn't matter if Chink's Hope's numbers are intentionally wrong and if Kronos' numbers are unintentionally slightly wrong. They're wrong, and it's easy to notice. When I played on Kronos, you didn't have to CC for 5 mans and the healer didn't have to sit down and drink, at least for the most part.

I don't know what you're talking about with RFD mobs though, all I know remember is that like every other dungeon on Kronos, it was a bit too easy. My memory of what vanilla was in 2005 is this: if you CCd properly, you usually didn't have to wait for your healer to drink. If the Warrior was 2h tanking, if your group was bad, or if you didn't use CC, then you frequently had to wait on the healer to drink. On Kronos, you could 2h tank without needing the healer to drink much, if at all. All of this is for the leveling dungeons, up to and including BRD. I didn't do enough of the 60 stuff on Kronos to remember well. Except for the Hunter boss in DMW, who was a nightmare to fight when DM came out, but was a total joke on Kronos AND Elysium/Chink's Hope.


af5c83  No.16613058

>>16613040

If you had a good group in vanilla, and your healer had decent gear for his level, then drinking was a minor issue and healers didn't have to as much. Otherwise, they did. That's how it was then and that's how it was now on kronos in my experience. As far as dungons and bosses go, there's plenty of videos from back in the day which show how things worked, in addition to some level of documentation from archived pages and such. But I guess your subjective opinion of

>I remember this game being harder when I played it back then

is more relevant, even though it's basically like saying

>back when I was 10 Yoshi's Island was so hard, but I went back a week ago and beat it and it wasn't a challenge at all! Clearly the game itself has changed.

I wasn't talking about having a good group, I was talking about random pugs. The dynamic between a group where all 5 players are good, and a group with 1 good player and 4 awful-to-average players is night and day. Hell, the difference between a good tank and a decent tank is huge, insofar as healer mana is concerned at the very least.

>my memory sucks

I'm one of those freak of natures with amazing long term memories that can't remember what today's breakfast was. And besides, the few existing videos of actual vanilla leveling dungeons showed how much damage tanks took to some extent. Which was more than what tanks on Kronos took.

Vanilla WoW cost around 40 million to make over 5 years and had ~400k subs on launch, do you really think the company would have enough funds to pay all those people, server upkeep, to update hardware and continue pushing out content if it was F2P model?

Look what happened to BDO as example, game was B2P and had cosmetic shop but no content, they had to introduce P2W bullshit into the game to have enough funds to dish out new content.
