Wow is a joke, every version of it. Retail is the worst, the “classics” are not what we wanted/thought we’d get. Season of Mastery is a joke. This company has managed to screw up everything involving this game for the past 10-12 years. There’s no coming back from that.
I play classic TBC (and played vanilla classic, and will play Wrath classic) for the nostalgia. The games are somewhat fun, but not fun in the original game sense of the word. Could these versions of the game be awesome again, probably, but no one in this company has the foresight to make it so. It is what it is now, and will never be anything different. It’s time to stop caring about this game and just casually play it for nostalgia’s sake. Blizz doesn’t give a dang about you, what you want, what their legacy was, etc.
