Thank you for listening to the community in regard to the season of discovery announcement. I appreciate the open mindedness to whomever gives the green light to these projects. When the idea of legacy servers was shot down many years ago it looked bleak for us vanilla enjoyers. At that time, I was a private server refugee on Nostalrius. When the day came when Classic wow was announced it made me realize that there is some way to have our voices heard and I thank you all for that. I don’t know what’s in the works for the future of wow, but it seemed to be hinted by Chris Metzen that a conclusion was on the horizon. This got me thinking that perhaps an entirely new version of wow was being brainstormed.
Lend me your ears once more. I feel the future of wow will determine the future of the mmo genre. Just as how original wow revolutionized the genre and internet way back when, a new wow could do the same. In order to usher in this new golden age of gaming, a brave company(blizzard) will have to make the investment in developing the technology where everyone can exist in one world. I dream of an mmo game where everyone is on one server and can interact with each other in one place with little to no lag. Yes I know it’s unrealistic, but it is a vision of something great that would undoubtedly change the way gaming works. Imagine the millions of wow players all in one Azeroth. Imagine no more having to deal with dead servers, capped servers, layering, and any other technical problem that has become a barrier.
One day this idea will manifest and when that days comes we will experience next age of gaming.
