    If you are a true Classic Purist then you can not play on your current PC.

    Since these "purist" keep making comments and raging about the most small changes some may want to the classic servers. They clearly don't realize they are not "purist" at all.

    Unless you are playing the classic server on a Pentium III/IV computer and 1GB-2GB of DDR ram while running on Windows 2000/XP then you are not the purist you claim to be.

    Edit: Also you will have little addon support and can only use addon's that worked back then.

    More importantly, play on a single 4x3 monitor , no dual monitors.

    LOOOOOL. Every time I'd go to Ironforge (the true Alliance capital in Vanilla imo), my computer would lag so hard I'd end up falling in the pit below the bridges. Getting to the AH or the Bank was a nightmare. I spent most of my time in the PVP area anyway.

    And that's when someone suggested upgrading from 0.5 to 1 gig of RAM.
    Lol, those memories.

    I agree. You should play on a PC that lags during raids, or you should have to pay several hundred dollars the incur the financial burden that was Old School raiding.

    I kept my old computer just for this day, hoping it would come! Can't wait to break out my Pentium 4 Northwood system again!

    I'm gonna attempt to chemically induce amnesia so that the experience will be new, if you don't you're not a purist and can go play retail, classic obviously isn't for you :P

    According to your avatar thingy your profile is 5 years old. Thats 1865 days in total.
    According to your avatar again, you have typed 29.978 posts. 29978/1865 = 16,2 posts pr day for 5 years straight!!

    Thats truly amazing, but holy !#!# this post is dumb af.

    People who play retail wants the same experience back then not some modified version with QOL changes.
