    I used to be that hyped but after the non-progressive itemization it kind of killed it for me. Blizzard have introduced item inbalances that did not exist at those raiding periods.

    I don't mind the 1.12 client as it's too much of a hassle to do otherwise. However, implementing progressive itemization is comparatively easy, even so that private servers implement and handle them very well.

    If all else fails, we'll at least have Star Citizen, right Bubby?

    Exactly, no matter how folks will try to slice it Blizzard wins out in the long run.. More so since they will only have to go till the release of Naxx 40 and won't have to add anything new to classic..

    For the live game. They said Classic would be included in a retail subscription.

    Not Beta access. Point to a source other than today's that said you needed the sub for Beta. You will not find one.

    Maybe sometime in the year 2125 that you might finally get to be able to play a finished Star Citizen..

    Bloody delighted at this release date.

    The kids are back to school, young people are back to school and herself will be off on holiday.

    Totally booking some time off work for this.

    "Beginning May 15, select WoW players will be invited to participate in a small-scale, focused closed beta test."
    I bet very coincidentally most of them will be twitch streamers.

    They will be back here after a month crying that classic isn't the real vanilla. Nostalgia is a bitch :'D
    they are to dumb to realize this. You can remaster a game, but not a feeling

    another thing people fail to realize is that this is a throwback to vanilla. Its not a wow restart. You get classic and nothing more. You won't get new content, new updates etc, Game has a rather limited lifespan

    The only positive I see is that I should be able to take a vacation on those dates. But IMO it's way too late.
    Also asking for subscription to opt for beta and reserve names is such a shitty move.

    Subscription based beta test. Nice

    Guys you dont need vacation for launch, it's not like you level to 60 in a week and start raiding. Relax. -.-

    Enjoy something for once and stop trying to power-rush through everything.

    It's a bit shitty.

    They could have at least said the Beta as well needed an active sub when announcing it.

    I think it just shows how passionate the majority are for Classic.

    Something you rarely see with current WoW these days.

    Going to laugh if I get invited for the beta tomorrow.

    Woot classic hype! Back to the future!

    Beta is not meant to get free game play, its for testing stuff. Names reservation is not meant for players who aren't planning to play. It makes sense to require subscription. Subscription will be shared between Classic and BfA anyway.

    Shocker.
    You have no leg to stand on here, buddy. After all, we have you and others throwing shade at Blizzard in a thread dedicated to how Blizzard is doing its best to create a better work environment for their employees.

    I'll never understand why the modern gaming era has this mentality.
    Simple. Take a good look in the mirror. People like you, hating on Blizzard at every single opportunity you get is the reason people have this attitude toward Classic and their more vocal supporters.

    Nowadays something has to fail for the sake of it according to some vitriolic people.
    Shocker coming from someone who all they do is spew vitriol at Blizzard, even when they do something right.
    I did a Necromancer thing. Check it out! All feedback welcome!
    Update 08/17: I changed how the Bone spec's golem mechanic works, as well as some other minor changes.
    I also did a Bard thing! Questions, comments and ideas, all welcome!
    Update 09/02: Apparently the mods decided to merge my class concept thread with an existing one.

    Sure, Ion, you are right.

    Very true, and it will be interesting to see how long it takes them to realize it.. I do have to laugh at those finding out that they need a sub to test beta, which if I remember right has always been a case since at least Burning Crusade, and probably vanilla beta before that..

    It is pretty shitty.

    Most games either do free weekends, a one time buy in to Beta or just random invites regardless.
