    It's nice to see people being happy about Classic and I hope most who plan to return to the past will get what they seek and enjoy tremendously.

    yeah...the almost child like giddiness most of those guys are displaying as well as their obvious passion is perhaps the single best "selling" video / cinematic Blizzard ever produced and it speaks volumes about Classic as a game worth playing.

    There's a certain charm, for lack of a better description, to the original game and how it played missing from subsequent iterations.

    I worked at Blizzard from 05-12. It makes me happy to see these long time vets I saw daily that were instrumental in the growth of the game getting to sit back and have some fun talking about it.

    These guys poured their heart and soul into the work they did. Keep in mind though, that the people working there now are doing the same thing. Ion and his team are just as committed to WoW as Jeff, Tom, Alex and the rest were.

    I'm so thankful to watch this video, see them play this again, and to re-join them next week in WoW classic.

    It's time to go home again!

    ps - to those in wow retail, keep on <3'ing it. Seriously, there's plenty of WoW for us all.

    Unless I missed something, Alex still works on WoW.

    Yeah I'd normally be among the first to call them out on emotionally manipulative marketing like this, but I feel they're being genuine. They made something special, and getting to return to it 15 years later is enough to thaw the iciest heart.

    People happy about something they worked on being a huge success? This cant stand. Must find alternate motives to making this movie and look down on them.
