    You cant even compare the 2 realy..

    The entry for retail is significantly higher and much more stresfull.

    Whereass classics entry is about the same as level 1 candy crush.

    And in retail, U can get the same if not better gear by entering 5 mans with close friends. Which is more fun then being part of a large team where your just a number realy,

    Quality retail is definitly so much ahead of classic, it cant even be compared lol

    Just looked at both Blizz forums and MMO-Champ, there is not one troll post on the front or second page of either. Why are you lying?

    Definitely, Classic is booming whilst retail is a ghost town. Pretty obvious.

    You must be blind or have unrealistic standards of what trolling is.

    I counted about 25% per page.

    People should be somewhere if over 75% of them stopped raiding.

    What’s that say when 25% of classic > retail for raid player counts?

    I guess we just have to expect rabid classic haters and rabid classic fans throwing bullshit at each other for as long as both versions of the game exist now

    No it's not, sorry dude. Doesn't mean that Classic is any less fun.

    https://www.classicqueues.com/

    Shutting down... for now

    Unfortunately, for the forseeable future ClassicQueues will be no longer be active. I've had a lot of fun with this project and I've learned a lot of things, but unfortunately at this point it doesn't make sense to continue for a variety of reasons:

    Lack of Queues - There simply just aren't that many queues any more. Thanks to server transfers and players dropping off, queues are not as common now.

    Difficulty of maintaining the Queue Parser: There have been multiple minor updates to the game client that have affected my automated queue parser. There is no API that I can interact with, so this parser has been manually driving the game client and parsing screenshots. In some cases it has broken it completely, in other cases it has introduced strange behavior that is difficult to reproduce or account for. Due to the nature of the program, it is very difficult to test without servers with queues - This wasn't a problem at launch, but now with the rarity of queues things are much harder to test.

    Cost: I've been maintaining two WoW subscriptions and paying for AWS hosting costs in addition to my current subscription as part of this project - At this point the cost doesn't make sense for me to continue on with with the lack of queues.

    That being said, if there is ever a large content patch that re-introduces our favorite Queue feature, I'll be excited to get this site operational again.

    Goodbye for now!
    Queue guy literally repeats how there's a lack of queues in Classic aka players dropping off.

    I just got a Rejuvenating Gem in BWL. The healers in my guild used this thing until the Illidan trinket dropped for them.

    It felt better to get that gem the other night than it has to get anything in retail in 10 years.

    If you exclude LFR, sure.

    Good for you, to me that's just sad as you won't get to experience an upgrade and your gears now stagnant due to poor itemization.

    Which is what I said a few pages ago about how the big issue with retail raiding is the gear has no value due to multiple tiers of each item, and how seasonal it is thus giving it a short lifespan.

    The gear in classic has more value and that’s the appeal. It’s why it’s worth dealing with the social structures of 40 man raids. And the gear has value in pvp too.

    You either have it or not, and the only way to progress is to climb the ladder higher and higher which is more appealing from an rpg stand point and allows growth and reward

    Vs retail where it’s built like diablo 3 seasons and gear is just a a boring # increase and you could have multiple tiers of the same exact item, devaluing them all

    It’s better than having to replace it with the same item with a higher #, or having to hunt it down next season, and the next, and the next...

    There’s nothing wrong with huge power bumps and gaps in an mmorpg, and haves and have nots.

    Having a badass powerful item never gets old in any game.

    Even tho I’ll have my ironfoe for nearly a year when I likely get thunderfury, it will never get old or boring.

    Prestige, and power are important in an mmorpg just like life. Wow classic tries to create a world, where as retail is front and center that it’s just a game and don’t worry if you fell behind because next season is almost here and then you’ll be on even footing again /eyeroll

    But there's no prestige in getting an item from easy content. You did an easy 5 man and now u hae aace better than raids till you get thunder fury that will be with you till the game dies and won't get anything from the harder content for that slot at all. Your char will have gear from easy content for its entire exhistance because of broke itemization, that's worse than titan forging it's just bad design.

    The point of an mmo is the perpetual treadmill without it the game stagnates and dies. There always needs to be a new goal, and there needs to be greater prestige from that harder things than the easy and no one should want to be carrying about some mace from a 5man when clearing several tiers later, that's just arse.

    Nice try. But when an upgrade like that is worth it instead of loot pinata in BFA, I'd rather play Classic.

    AS much as I want retail or 'original wow' to dominate classic: I personally believe classic deserves its time to shine

    Now when SL or ShadowLands releases.. I hope it destroys classic hahaha

    I played classic and loved the leveling experience but the end game is too lacking. I went into classic with the opinion I would prefer BC and left it eagerly looking forward to BC being released. For the mean time I am playing retail when I need a WoW fix, but I do have plans to go back and level some more characters on classic. Far as classic end game, there are numerous problems and asking Blizzard to fix them would destroy what Classic is to the people it is intended for. I started in vanilla, but I never did end game until BC, and as a result I don't care for the end game classic has to offer.
