    View numbers were carried by two streamers whose audience literally watches them eat fast food and do gardening. And one of them was explicitly against classic until 2017 when he saw an opportunity to easily earn money and joined the hype train. Being a classic fan is a meme at this point.

It was as if someone hurt them physically and felt the need to rage in public.
    Yeah as if it was totally one sided back then. Both sides were full of assholes making outlandish claims and insulting the other side. People that wanted Vanilla got Classic, we'll see how well it does after a few months. That is what I'm curious about really.

    That shows the value of classic for people. I think this game might just have been revived at last.

    What I'd want blizzard to do now is to actually advertise classic a bit more so we can have young people joining this game.
    Nobody ever argued that there won't be a huge surge of players flooding the classic servers upon launch.
    The only question is how fast and how steep will those player numbers decline in the months after.

    Who is Asmongold again?
    Sorry, it's so hard to keep track of who's youtube important nowadays.
    If World of Warcraft has taught me anything, it's that teaching a crowd something is far harder than teaching individuals.

    Young people are going to give up, they don't exactly stick with things for very long.

    Launch window views aren't much to go on.



    I took this screengrab when BFA launched, FWIW. It was doing huge numbers during the launch window.

    Honestly Twitch viewership isn't the most ideal metric anyway. If Asmongold and Soda weren't streaming the numbers would be way lower. Individual streamers have a huge influence on who is watching what. Also, people watching doesn't directly correspond to people playing.

    at last someone with some sense,ive said this before all streamers care about is viewers and money,there would stream shit if it got subs,when classic launches it will have big numbers untill the grind sets in an then numbers will plummit.and i will tell you now no big streamers will touch classic with a long pole,once again blizz lets its true fans down.

    Why would any young people be attracted to join Classic?

    The primary appeal of Classic is nostalgia. They should be focussing their marketting efforts on people who played, and enjoyed the original game.

    The same reason young people played WoW back in the days, it's a good game. It's a timeless classic, young people still enjoy LEGO, it doesn't need to change, classic is the same. There will be plenty of young teenagers playing classic.

    You have the real OG's who ACTUALLY care about it and have already stated will NOT be streaming when classic launches (soda for example) anything else is just inflation, of course it's "popular" on twitch it's been hella hyped, it will settle down just like all the others

    I am a bit bummed about this phenomenon. I hope layering works out really well (or Blizzard has some other plan for server health other than paid transfers) Classic really isn't meant to be THE NEXT BIG THING. It is supposed to be a little more niche -- with strong, healthy communities made up of people who actually like traditional MMORPGs.

    Asmongold is forming a raid for Gurubashi Arena. Its going to be quite an event.

    Payo and Sodapoppin are making a counter group.

    The drama is real. I have multiple streams open atm

    My favorite streamer Payo killed Asmongold...priceless but they lost the fight

    Classic will be a moderate success with a high peak then level out at an average number of players. The twitch viewers will be very high for a week or so then decrease dramatically before spiking in AQ events or MC world first etc. Many of the most well known and big games made by the juggernauts of the industry do this. You cannot determine Classic's success at this juncture or using this twitch metric it's nonsense.
