BlizzCon tix holders can download (but not play) WoW Classic’s demo right now

If you look to your left, you will see a sad person.

BlizzCon won’t be here until late next week, but ticket holders can get a jump on the two-day convention by downloading the hotly anticipated World of Warcraft Classic demo right now. Note that we said “download” and not “play” — this is strictly a set-up situation and not some sort of wild head start scenario. You can access the download through the standard Blizzard launcher, provided that you have a ticket tied to your account.

“We’re incredibly excited for you all to get your hands on the WoW Classic BlizzCon demo next week,” Blizzard said, “and to help make things as smooth as possible, we’re making the client available to download for Virtual Ticket holders starting today.” The studio noted that regular ticket holders who have added the virtual code to their account may also engage the download.

WoW fansite Icy Veins has a preview of what to expect when you boot up this virtual time machine. WoW Classic’s demo will run on Patch 1.13 and feature multiple realms to handle the expected influx (and outflux, when everyone gets booted for playing too long).

I think more people will be playing Classic then BfA.
Dint played it yet but looking at all the youtube channels it doesnt look good at all.

Some say its so bad they just cant stand it anymore let alone play it.
Maybe its time for Blizzard to really start looking to create another mmo from another franchise they have or create a totaly new one.

I don’t see an option to download it on the launcher. Where should it be?

This sounds like it’s definitely going to give people a true Vanilla WoW experience, alright. I remember when the original open beta for WoW arrived and everyone was crammed into Darnassus, fighting over the same few grell and spider spawns. It really did take days to finish those first several levels — not because the content was particularly hard but because other people were killing everything the instant it spawned.

Obviously, melee types had the most fun because they weren’t stuck hoping that the mob wouldn’t be killed by someone else before the cast timer finished.

Good times. :p

From a blue:

If you don’t see the option to install the demo right away, don’t worry – you’ll still have plenty of time to download the client before the demo goes live during BlizzCon next week.

Figured the client would be available a week early or so or it’d be an onslaught, with barely an elected few able to be done downloading before the event wraps up.

Haven’t seen datamining yet around, did they encrypt the code or it’s just yet to get out there?
