unfortunately the title of this thread gives completely the wrong impression of what Blizzard actually said in their reply
Over the years we have talked about a “pristine realm”. In essence that would turn off all leveling acceleration including character transfers, heirloom gear, character boosts, Recruit-A-Friend bonuses, WoW Token, and access to cross realm zones, as well as group finder. We aren’t sure whether this version of a clean slate is something that would appeal to the community and it’s still an open topic of discussion.
they are not talking about doing legacy servers and recreating a version of wow that is actually fun to play
they are talking about live wow, so wod and legion, but modified so that heirlooms, lfg, paid character boosts, wow token and cross realm do not exist
so basically live shitty wow with live shitty class design and live shitty garrisons/order halls, but you have to pay real money to play on it and you can't buy character boosts or level with heirlooms or group with people on other servers
imagine a ladder where you could see teams, and if you clicked a team you could actually see their match history and rating history to see where they got their rating from. maybe you could even click individual games on said rating history graph to see who they played against, what comp, and stats like how much damage was done
I've been asking myself this a thousand times myself when reading through all the blizzfanboys on youtube
because they see how dead live wow is and think that someone playing on a private server = someone not playing on live, therefore private servers are killing live wow and if all private servers get shut down, wow will have 10 million subscribers again
Wait are you for srs? They are removing old models/animatios
old models option in legion = current old model faces stretched over new model bodies + new model animations
easiest way for them to get all those shiny new ability and spell animations to work - obviously they could have just left the old models with old animations, but thats clearly something we all think we want, but we don't exDee
rip undead male cast animation 2003 - 2016, you will be missed
I still don't understand too, even if TBC could be the only "legacy server" i would like to play.
If it's exactly like back in the day, and if it's mainly for PvP, there is something wrong.
You will play the season 1 without dr, without universal trinket (shaman can't trinket a sheep), with some class having no resilience on their gear (paladin), with pom/pyro mage being able to one shot you, while sheeping you for 50 second...
Then, during 3 next seasons in TBC, we saw no huge change at all, the 4 OP spec stayed OP until the end, and 2v2 being an important thing, increasing the OPness of the 4 previous spec.
Perhaps when you played rdruid, your class interacted well with others, sure, you could play with any other possible spec and make it viable. It was extremly common to burst down a rdruid as double dps by using everything, and then die to the SL/SL warlock who took 2s to click each of his spell just because his class was "well designed".
TBC is for me extremly good memories because it was the first arenas and shockadin spec was fucking fun, but then i remember that thanks to no changes at all during all the xpac besides PvE gear, the fotm was even worse than now
I'm maybe wrong, but this is my feeling.
the point is, absolutely everything you listed here is 100x more fun then wod trash gameplay and 1000x more fun then wod v2 legion trash gameplay is looking currently
(obviously that's my opinion before you type another essay on why I'm wrong - but I'm clearly not the only one here that shares that opinion)
why should this girl doing nothing in a call with mitch be competing with cdew for viewers, and winning
what makes you think they are competing for the same viewers? if people want to watch tits and hear a female voice over the internet, they will go to a stream that offers that content, regardless of the game title at the top of the stream
its not like World of Warcraft is only allowed a fixed number of viewers, and then they all have to choose if they want to watch Cdew or watch tits
