Earlier this week, Blizzard responded to calls for a vanilla World of Warcraft server by suggesting it wouldn’t do a vanilla server but would consider “pristine” servers. Buried in the missive was a note that Blizzard had been in contact with the Nostalrius emulator crew, whose shutdown under legal pressure sparked the wider gaming community’s renewed interest in classic servers to begin with. “They obviously care deeply about the game, and we look forward to more conversations with them in the coming weeks,” J. Allen Brack wrote.
It now looks as if one of those conversations is happening sooner rather than later.
