MMORPGs are better with friends, and nobody should suffer Barrens chat alone. If the upcoming World of Warcraft Classic has you pining for the company of old friends circa 2004, then let the folks at Blizzard help you rekindle those flames.
In a silent and pretty dang wholesome move, some forum threads were opened up to facilitate reconnecting old friendships forged in the original World of Warcraft, letting those players enjoy each other’s company once again in Classic. The thread tree has three branches: one for each of the two factions and a third looking for new people who they haven’t met yet, so if you’re hoping to make friends in advance of the classic server launch, you’re not left twisting in the wind.
Judging by the response numbers in each thread, we think the move has been pretty readily embraced by players, so maybe your old mates are hiding in there somewhere. It’s certainly worth the look.
