    I played Vanilla for over ten years. Because it was new, and an exciting time in MMO history to be apart of such a hugely successful NEW mmo (which was still being developed). You can try to recreate the servers - but you cannot recreate the true experience, and that's what people are going to get hung up on. A lot more mattered than just "the mechanics" of the game. It was a particular time in gaming history where expectations were much, much lower than they are now.

    Free with no real hardware requirement.

    Also, a very large portion of the old runescape "active players" are actually bots.

    And as has been said, I don't think I'd call 100k players "Successful" compared to WoW.

    For what old school runescape is I'd say it's succesful. It has a very low budget and the gameplay and graphics are super outdated. Im saying despite how aged the game is It's doing better than anyone would expect it to. Wow has moved so far away from what the original creators of the game envisioned it isn't even the same game anymore. It's just get to 120 on our railroad, do mythic+, follow minimap icons for killing stars and kill bosses in raids. Professions only have a couple items you can make now and are completely streamlined without having to level them up from past expansions so old materials become useless. No one needs to go back and mine copper ore in durotar anymore. They just go straights to BFA mining. But for what? Their blacksmith can only make BoP stuff that is irrelevant by the time you can craft it.

    At least in that game getting levels actually matters. Professions, quests, slayer, etc are all interwoven to create a whole game that depends on all its parts. The gameplay itself can be boring, but you have so many goals and different paths to prioritize "should i get herblore up to 50 to access this quest so I can unlock ability to use *blank* or should I level my combat? Should I raise my magic for access to higher alchemy and more teleports?

    WoW Is just "get to 120, increase item level, do esports"

    From what I’ve seen and read already it’s not very innovative, the basic idea is there but the way they are doing it is …well, boring AF.

    Everyone will have the same Essences none are class specific, they could have made them like the Legion Artifact traits, but I guess that was too much work for them, hell, they could have used the same Artifact traits as legion, at least something interesting. but no this system is boring as hell.

    There will be straight off the bat , one best Essence for casters, one for melee, one healers, one for tanks, one 2nd best for… etc etc and EVERYONE will use those, everyone will have the exact same offensive ability the exact same defence ability etc, sorry it sucks, its boring, it lacks innovation, as obviously been designed with very minimal thought, it’s nothing special when everybody has the exact same thing.

    What’s happened with Developers actually being developers this is just basic boring C**P
