    If blizzard takes a dump on the purists will you be satisfied?

    It's simple. Will you experience joy if changes are made?

    I will be satisfied when WoW: Classic will be fun game. I really don't care about "purists" and their feelings.

    I actually hope everyone will enjoy WoW: Classic, no matter what is their dream "WoW: Classic" ..because frankly, when reading forums all over the internet, there is no unity. So hopefully Blizzard will hit that sweet spot, where most people will be happy.

    Classic is a very niche experience,even with QoL people who aren't part of that will not enjoy it
    With QoL purists will not enjoy it

    the only way it could possibly work is to make it pure classic,exactly the game servers like Nostalrius provided
    Blizzard is trying to get those players while killing those servers,if they do it any differently they will fail

    I will be happy as long as its a restrained dump. Small tweeks to specs and small QoL changes that will make the game better but doesnt destroy or affect the core game mechanics, exploration, or social structure.

    Anyone who thinks WoW Classic is going to be closer to a 1.12 Vanilla realm than a WoW HD with various improvements are deluding themselves at this point. There will be Visual upgrades, and there will be class balance passes (thank fucking christ) but the game play systems will be left largely alone. Still expect days of time to reach 60, comical farming time and drop rates, vanilla style questing, a distinct lack of QoL nonsense. But expecting their to be no improvements is ridiculous. At its core WoW was broken. I expect a lot of what was broken, namely class balance will be fixed.

    Unless you want to play a game where only warriors, mages, rogues, and healers are playing end game.

    Blizzard currently has a retail for non-purists. If they fuck over the purists, people who aren't paying customers, and instead just make a side show for all of their current subscribers, then subscriber numbers and box sells won't nearly be as high. So, business 101, will have to teach you what the right decision is.

    If Blizzard deviates from the original design of the game, they may as well scrap the whole thing.
    I think vanilla fans realize that this is a very niche thing. You lose that crowd, you lose everything.

    I will probably fake rage, pitch a bitch, but really not care too much.

    If they modify vanilla then people will keep on asking for a vanilla server.

    Then I would just end up chanting, "You think you want it, but you don't".
    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!

    This. I want good game in spirit of old WoW, not necessary carbon copy of old WoW. I won't be playing for nostalgia. Furthermore, I think playing for nostalgia is wrong.

    It should be played because its good old MMORPG instead of theme park railed arcade we have in Legion, not because of old memories.

    This. People asked for Vanilla, not for Vanilla with perks. If people need them, maybe Vanilla wasn't as good as they remember.

    I'm happy whenever Blizzard takes a dump on ANY niche group in WoW.

    If they do i will just vote with my vallet and unsub totally , simple as that, won't do any shitstorm on forums etc., because i don't give a damn about couple of pixels.

    I don't really care what they do with it, because even if I play it I will only dabble.
    Personal opinion: they need to leave out all QoL changes people want. Updated graphics are fine, bug fixes are fine (game crashes/etc shouldn't exist); however, people should get vanilla as that is what they have been pining for all along. To ask for QoL fixes and stupid things like that take away from what vanilla was and shouldn't happen.
    You asked for it, you should get what you asked for. To ask for more just shows you aren't into vanilla as much as you think you are.
    I never played vanilla, but if I had a chance to I'd want to play it as it was, as that is the game I've heard about over the years.

    You don't realize that asking for it to be pure is asking for more. They are entertaining the thought of classic servers and EVERYONE (even the purists) want more!

    Be happy they're even working on something classic! And realize you don't dictate how they do it.

    Speak for yourself. I want the least QoL changes that didn't happen in Vanilla. They haven't said any of that. Just that the server was announced and in the works.
