If you’re going to keep rehosting classic, how about a version with the crusade patch on it? All you need to do is disable the new profession, races, and portal to outlands. Now THIS would be a version of classic that might actually survive long term. As it stands though, you are just creating more shovelware realms.
“You aren’t good enough? Aren’t dedicated enough? You don’t get the gear. Period. Stay in Outlands.”
-What you’re saying isn’t specific to classic. Feel free to stay wherever you went since you haven’t posted in months.
“World’s first rank 14 takes skill and dedication.”
-Dedication maybe but certainly not skill. It’s just a time sink. He who has the most hours to waste is most rewarded.
“I’m not entirely sure what you’re asking for here like are you saying have it be a permanent prepatch?”
“In this thread people who never earned rank 14 cry in an attempt to get the system changed so they can.”
-The rank system was garbage. Just own it. There’s a reason why it was deleted with crusade.
“all i want is the ability to que anywhere so i can farm while waiting. Also, horde and ally all in the same que, stop these 40 minute que timers, just mix the teams”
-If queues are fast there’s no need to queue from everywhere. Also, crusade has mixed BGs now, on all types except AV.
“What about the new areas in Azeroth?”
-The new quest areas would be a positive.
“part of me wonders what will happen at the end of the season of mastery though”
-It is believed they will dump the characters over to the original classic realms but Blizzard has made no official announcements yet.
“Drain, your bad opinions aren’t this important.”
-They didn’t need to split the playerbase for SOM either, but it still happened.
