Oh man US fell behind here.

We got to step up, losing to China while they have plague crisis, going undeterred. Tough people there.

Great job on encouraging speedrunning through basically all of the content in this game, rather than just enjoying it.

At this rate, Classic won’t last long.

fake news. WoW classic has leveling content which is the bulk of classic. Retail has 0 leveling content.

So every Super Bowl game is composed of the same teams and players making the exact same plays each game?

If there are Blue posts listing World First, I think Blizzard says otherwise.

Kaivax i`m just discouraged you have nothing better to post
i guess you dont realize the negative impact this have on the game
classic is all about the journey not speed running and min max
terrible from a blizzard staff posting and highlight this /facepalm , all content are clear 15 year ago anyway

this is the main issue most blizzard staff have any clue about vanilla
