    Argus was 7.3, the equivalent of Nazj was Broken shore and we could fly there, I bet there will be no flying in 8.3's zone.

    (And by equivalent I don't mean size or content, just release time)

    Some will eye roll, some will agree, some will call me crazy, but i'd bank on classic out populating BFA no problem. The expansion post BFA though, i doubt it as they will come out swinging to win back lost fans over the last few expacs. I hope so at least, it isn't like i want WoW to fail i adore the series and want whats best always for them and hope the expac after BFA is the best ever. fingers crossed
    At least you're honest. I think you're crazy for predicting that Classic will have a total population higher than Live, but as you said, we'll see.

    It may push pretty high at launch, but it'll drop drastically once the nostalgia wears off, vanilla was only good for the time, it's not a very good version of the game.

    I....wow you are really stupid. BC, wrath, cata, mists all had worse launches by a long shot. The bugs were WAY worse on launch day than they were for bfa, and 90-95% of the gaming population would prefer world quest to what you had to do for old rep. Grind mobs for 5 rep a piece? Fuck. That. Shit.

    Then you try and compare argus to the 7.2 zones when....wait for it....those are not the end game zones. NO end game zone has ever had flying accessable in the final zone. Not bc, not mists, NO ONE. If you had wanted to make the correct comparison, we both know that you should have used the annoying island below dal to compare to the 7.2 zones, but if you did that you wouldnt be able to shriek and whine about flying. At least try not to lie so obviously when you "argue" your point
    Never believe you have seen the peak of human stupidity and ignorance, or you will constantly be surprised by the new levels the reach almost every day

    I mean, we are on easily the biggest wow forum (outside of the official forums) in existence, and even here, the Classic subforum gets about 5-20% of the traffic the regular wow discussion forum does, without even including all the other subforums about the modern game (classes, pvp, raiding, lore etc.)

    I'm not trying to be pessimistic about 8.3, I'm just trying to draw parallels. In Legion they also got a new dungeon in 7.1. We're getting ours in 8.2 along with flying. It's gonna be different in terms of relevance in my opinion.

    How does forgetting stuff from over 7 years ago make me stupid? Do I sit and recollect everything everyday? No. I can't remember the bugs from every launch and also the rep grinds weren't as bad, so that means BFA worse because bugs + bad, they were compounded, I don't think your rage can allow you to comprehend that formula though.

    It isn't a 1 for 1 comparison. I'm more comparing the first dungeon releases. I literally said one sentence about flying, just using it as a nice treat we're getting along with the dungeon, I don't understand how that's shrieking, whining and lying and "arguing". Who am I even arguing against and what are you talking about??

    If you wanna pick an online fight about nothing, why not just go to Youtube comment section?

    It's not your memory that made that post bad, it was that you stated your memory as undeniable fact, and then when on to make some false equivalencies. Maybe throw in a caveat next time such as saying that is how you remember it?

    I mean, why would you say something dumb like "BFA had the worst launch of any of the expansions, there's no question about that." if you can't even remember previous launches? Also why are you acting like remembering a basic event is some extremely tiring and involved process you have to do daily?

    WoD start was atrocious. Lots of bugged quests in the starting area, especially in the highest populated realms. Friends had to realm transfer to even play the game. Compared to that, BfFa launch has been pretty smooth.

    Oh, remember the WoD opening? With the dark portal? The atrocious lag? It was so bad Blizz offered 5 days worth of extra time to every active subscription.

    i bet you that 8.2 includes only new zones , naga invasions giving catch up 400 itlv gear and long 8-10 weeks time gated questline at the end of which you will unlock both flying and dungeon .

    new raid will come in 8.2.5

    It's all facets of life.

    In work, politics, gaming etc. People just like being right, and want people to be wrong - they don't want the problem to actually be solved.

    Agreed, well said.

    I would say they DO want the problem to be solved, but they want much much MUCH more for the "wrong" party to admit they're "wrong".

    My sentiments exactly. I just don't think the max population during that time frame will come close to the Live server population.

    That is partly because one game is released and in full force and the other is an upcoming re-release. The traffic will increase significantly on launch. Also, there is not a lot to talk about, at least for old timers, most of the stuff is known and since Blizz plans to launch as close to classic as possible I have no reason to go there. And I will play Classic a lot.

    Bethesda released Morrowind for free for the Elder Scrolls anniversary, so I downloaded it and fired it up. It was disgusting. A few hours later after mods I tried again, and there's enough nostalgia to be pretty damn cool, but it also has a nice fresh coat of paint to make it enjoyable. Vanilla won't have that fresh coat of paint, and I can't imagine more than a few diehards getting much enjoyment out of it for the amount of time investment needed.

    They aren't going to publicly act like the expansion is failing. It would be bad for business.

    Outside of Classic forum communication is non existent, only info we have is directly from Ion with vague promises, 8.2 PTR is not up for a MAJORRRR game changing patch, Lore has been dead silent except insulting people on the forums, devs have been afraid to communicate bugs when reported/confirm them.

    The list just keeps going. Every single thing I see Ion listing out was reported far prior to BFA even launching but how many had to quit and get fired before he decided to put his hubris aside and admit something is broken?

    Nowhere in his interviews is he addressing the casino that is BFA right now and if anything has embraced it even further in dev Q&A's which are few and far between. Where in the hell are the class devs? People are beyond pissed right now about class design and the pruning but there is nothing. Who in the hell looks at prot warriors in MDI right now and does not thing that is just broken and crowding out other tanks that need buffs?

    Guilds have been turned into glorified raid log communities as people are just disillusioned at what is going on right now. Where is the 8.2 hype on the PTR? Atleast then you could get people motivated to stay with the game and not just give up.
    It's not failing, it's actually their top grossing game atm.

    Just because you see a lot of forum crybabies doesn't mean the game is dead. Majority of the people complaining on the forums don't even have valid argument for which why they are complaining about. I've seen it go as far as people complaining that allied races are not buyable with a credit card. Yeah lets not listen to forum QQs.
