World of Warcraft: Classic is successfully letting some players reconnect with old friends

We remember, to our detriment.

This is just plain nice to see. Regardless of anything else going on in World of Warcraft: Classic, it’s good to see people finding old friends and re-establishing connections that had been lost with time. A piece on Kotaku dives into the community rebuilding connections, laughing at the silliness of old drama even between players that used to be locked into bitter fights over things like loot and raid groups. That’s a full-on positive effect of having WoW Classic around.

Of course, it’s not perfect; the article is spotlighting a specific Discord group dedicated to helping old friends reconnect, so it is entirely player-run. And some of the players interviewed have noted that friends have returned to the game only to leave shortly thereafter, since the game is… well, still the vintage grind from years ago. But hearing about someone reconnecting with surrogate fathers from 15 years ago is just plain heartening, no matter what. And please, do let us know if you’ve reconnected with any old friends in the game if you’ve gone back.

While ostensibly it would be great to connect with the guys and gals from Bad Moo Rising (Eldre’Thalas) and just sayin’ hey…I’m making NEW friends in Classic that are great. Havin’ a ball.

I began my guild with 4 folks who were all very different and yet my first WoW gaming “family”. I miss them all very much. There are certain places in Classic that I have revisited and memories come flowing. -yeah and some tears as well-

I do not think they are still playing. I’m not sure. However, if by some fate of luck, if Lingard, Japhsette, Aysha, or Jediah happen to read articles here on Massively OP, I say to all of you-I dearly miss those hilarious times we had together learning how to play.

I would pay any price to travel back in time and run a few dungeons with these folks. They say you can never go home, however, here’s my wish just the same.

– a toast dear friends- to our adventures and our friendship!

Haven’t reconnected with anyone yet but then again I also am on the wrong server type for it (my old Human Warlock was on an RP server while I’m currently playing on a PvP server in Classic).

Oh, yeah, reconnected with maybe 1/4th of the people from my vanilla guild. We’re not all playing Classic together, but it was the catalyst that got us back in touch. And now we’ve got a Discord running to help us stay in contact regardless of what happens in Classic.
