As I am only interested in playing Classic Wow; I stated from before Launch in 2019 that Blizzard should designate the servers that WILL progress into ‘Classic+/TBC’ and servers that WILL NOT ever be anything but Classic wow. My advice went unheeded.
So now that we have once massive 50,000 player servers of 12,000 active at a time down to 25 players online (total) ghost towns Bliz is looking to the community for feed back.
Here is my idea. Try to keep it simple:
1.) Launch a small number of Fresh Classic lvl 1 server with no changes from the first go around. (no porting in, no XP boosts, let the server grow in a natural way. Maybe have a handful of PvP and PvE servers in EU and USA and Oceanic. (RPers can pick a pve or pvp and just make it their home)
2.) For those who don’t want to grind rank 14 all over again etc have merged servers of the players who paid for their characters to be saved. (got to give them a legit place else charging them was not right. I’ve lost money transferring into a balanced server only to have bliz ‘fix it’ and it’s no longer balanced… and couldn’t transfer back bc my old server was now locked. We’ve all lost money in this game. Move on.)
- make it clear at the time of the Fresh server launches that there will be voted on servers that you must pay to vote (one vote) and you get to move there reserve your name etc. And this server will be ‘tailored’ to your specifications (within reason) boosted XP, more gold, faster drop rates, haircuts, duel talent spec, less % decay in BG’s rating to get Rank 14 gear, no world buffs in Raids, no Xfaction BG’s,
you will get as many flavors of vanilla as you have ice cream but a consensus will emerge. And you’ll have a ‘good enough’ Vanilla with sprinkles for people who wish to customize their game.
Please post your thoughts on Fresh, Merged Servers, and Classic with Sprinkles as the topics. (This is not even looking at TBC. We don’t care. WE JUST WANT A CLASSIC WE CAN CALL HOME.
