After all the PR mishaps and layoffs Blizzard’s had since last fall’s BlizzCon, I wouldn’t have been too surprised to see the company delay WoW Classic. But that doesn’t appear to be in the cards: Recent bluename posts on the official forums seem to at least imply we’re still on track for summer.
So I’ve been thinking more about it, whether I’ll play it, even whether we might hire more WoW specialists to cover it. Because there are definitely things I miss! I miss the simplicity of class makeups, of humble questing, of basic dungeoning. I miss my classic prot Warrior and my idiot self who leveled her to 60 as a tank back then. I really miss the classic battlegrounds the most, though. Of everything we lost along the way, the feel of those creaky old battlegrounds and the thousands of hours I spent in them… that’s a temptation.
Are you still thinking about playing WoW Classic this summer, and if so, what are you looking forward to the most in that version of the game?
