They almost got me, but not in the end. Right around 3 p.m. yesterday, just before the servers went live, in spite of my determination not to play (because I’ve already got a bunch of classic MMOs I’m happy with!), I started poking around my guild’s chat to see who was going for WoW Classic. I’m incredibly lucky that my guild remembers vanilla WoW all too vividly since we were all there together at launch, and not many are anxious for round two. Here was me. And then they did this. One of them recommended I just live vicariously through a streamer rather than hand Blizzard $15 just to get to stand around and gawk at the borky launch experience just to say I did it. He saved me! Thanks man.
But you folks… well, enough of you clearly went ham on WoW Classic that the servers did that MMO trainwreck thing they always do at a launch. We saw queues over
24,000 30,000 people long on some servers, server outages, new servers coming up, and lag… so much lag. Holy crap! This is awesome!
Now that day one is over, ‘fess up: Did you fall for WoW Classic, and what do you think so far?
