    It's like they think they are original with the Classic is gonna play out topics, go to one of the other 40k posts and post there
    Same with the BfA ones, we have a year (prob longer for classic) lets all mellow out man.

    More like:
    1.Classic servers launch
    2.They are plagued by bots/goldsellers and blizzard doesn't do anything
    3.Game loses a lot of players because of 2.

    While i really want classic servers to succeed i'm afraid they will be destroyed by todays agressive chinese botters/goldsellers like most new mmos.

    Blah-blah-blah.

    Gear matters as much as ever, hint: You won't down content without it. Just look at the amount of min-maxing and theorycrafting and simming that goes into gear these days and try to say "Lul it mattered more to raiders in Classic coz resistances!!"...

    I think that's one of the reasons Classic doesn't interest me. I've tanked more than enough Dark Coffer runs to last me a lifetime...

    I really doubt people will be clearing naxx in 9 months. It would take nearly that long to gear a virgin raid in MC.

    Classic will settle for steady, dedicated tens of thousands of players, for a very healthy server for a full cycle, which i expect to last between 2-3 years. After that, say, 3 year mark, interest will fade a bit since it was a complete cycle, and they will either start a new cycle (think Path of Exile league, think Diablo 'season, think 'cycle') if interest is high or do something crazy like convert to TBC.
    Sounds closer. It will probably be a great pressure release valve for the community too for people that just don't like what the game has become.

    .
    If the server launches with Naxx 40 open, it'll be cleared well within the 9-month mark. The amount of seasoned players knowing Classic in-and-out and speeding towards max level and gearing is not to be taken lightly.

    It'll be especially funny if Method decides to gun for the "World first Legacy kill" of each Classic end raid boss.

    Not really, no.

    But you keep on doing you, if you want to call yourself "Idiot" and believe that gear somehow doesn't matter to players as much these days, if not more given the balancing, titanforging etc etc, then that's your right.

    1. WoW Classic is released.
    2. Players OVERWHELM the WoW Classic server. There is far MORE interest in WoW Classic than they anticipated. The initial Classic playerbase is something like 65% of the retail playerbase.
    3. The zones are congested and packed. It becomes difficult to level simply because you wind up with a queue to kill certain quest mobs.
    4. The people who vault ahead of the pack are those who ignore pretty much all quests from 1-25 and just grind. They hit 25+ ahead of everyone else and then get places like Arathi Highlands or Thousand Needles to themselves, which means they can now quest and pull ahead even FASTER.
    5. Blizzard decides to take no action regarding congested zones, adopting a policy that "the people wanted a vanilla experience and this is part of it."
    6. The Classic playerbase drops as people quit because they won't tolerate congested early zones. However, this is balanced by some people quitting WoW altogether, even retail. So the playerbase drops to something like 50% of retail.
    7. After a couple months, WoW Classic begins to settle in. Players adopt a policy of switching to Classic every time there is a content drought in retail.
    8. Every time there is a retail content drought, people play Classic and realize that, for some reason, its just more FUN and INTERESTING. They have a reputation in the Classic community to defend and protect. They MATTER. The gear and accomplishments seem to MATTER in a way it does not on retail.
    9. With every content drought in retail, Classic actually converts people to exclusive Classic players.
    10. 6 months after launch, the Classic population is about 75% the size of the retail population.
    11. 9 months to a year after launch the Classic population is roughly the same size as retail.
    12. People begin to regularly clear Naxxramas by now, with the PvE content complete, people quit WoW Classic. But thee people also feel retail is somehow inferior and do not return to retail.
    13. The WoW Classic population hovers around 80%-90% the size of the retail population.
    14. At this point, with the PvE content complete, the WoW Classic server begins a permanent transition into a PvP server. WoW classic becomes exclusively the place to grind rank 14, or play Arathi Basin, WSG, or especially old Alterac Valley all day.
    Maybe get a blog somewhere m8

    A simple view of the specs and how they react to certain items (never mind that certain classes NEED certain profession to provide them with things gap-closers) is enough to show you how much gear matters in Vanilla. I am not going to go into tanking because that's another can of worms. Never mind that certain specs are trash until they are gear-capped. Gear in Vanilla is absolutely everything.

    In current WoW I can go in and kill a mythic boss with just the gear I have. In Vanilla if I lack some dumb item like the Onyxia Hide cloak or whatever I will wipe. Cretin.

    When I said 9-12 months for Naxx, I meant the general public having it on farm. World First kill will be sooner.

    Not sure if you are implying to others what is FUN and INTERESTING or just plain insanity.

    Of course you can go in and kill a Mythic boss with the gear you have, either through getting it via progressing the raids and getting appropriate gear, or by purchasing a boost run.

    Gear these days might not make a bad player good like it could back in Classic, but it matters as much as ever for the content. The fact that you can't present your wrongful point without resorting to petty insults, says it all. Even the very best players of the game, can't go in and kill Mythic bosses without getting the appropriate gear.

    I'd like to go on record guessing that 65% of warrior players quit before level 30
