Of course the demand is high at the moment, because it is fueled by pure nostalgia and they are advertising it like the new coming, ironically. Blizzard knows how to utilize Streamers for their purposes.

I'm sure there will be lots of players in the beginning out of curiosity, but there will be a constant and sharp decline a couple of months later. Once the majority has satisfied their nostalgia hunger and feel the same annoyance from back in the day of unbalanced classes, abilities and items and the heavy time investment needed for the endgame, they will switch over to new prospects.

Did you ever think maybe some people like to invest time in endgame to acquire gear, rather then have it handed to them? Maybe feel a sense of accomplishment, rather then just entitlement? Guess not, but right now ALL their servers are full, and they need to launch new ones at 1pm, I think you underestimate the number of people that want a challenge, and a sense of accomplishment in their game play.

I don't have a problem with that per se, but when a streamer (this has been talked about in the forums) tells his/her followers to spit on people that buy the mounts that goes over the line, don't you think. I think there is a place for both versions if everyone would agree to just let people play their way without all the name callings, etc.

That crosses the line in anything. But I don't watch streamers to begin with, personally I think they are a waste of time. Never understood why someone would watch some loudmouth, idiot play a game
Personally I would laugh at how pathetic someone is to spit on me in a game, as if that makes any difference to me. I guess if you RP that would be different? I just want to have a game with challenge, not so easy there is practically no way to die. I don't condemn people or try to insult them or the game because it is not my type of game (which has happened in this post btw).

One games success does not devalue another game that others play. Personally I hate fanboys period.

**not to mention, but there are plenty of trolls in this game as well.

Yes, I have thought of people like that. There will always be players like you who enjoy investing a lot of time into hardcore endgame content and they can choose from a variety of games to fulfill their desire. I am not here to take away your personal excitement and enjoyment of what WoW Classic will be offering, I am happy for you and believe it or not I will actually look into WoW Classic for a short time just to compare it with my memories of 2004. Just consider that you are on a different platform here and your thread is the one trying to promote WoW Classic.

My point is that the general gaming variety and audience of today is not the same as the one from 2004. I doubt that the high demand which is artifically raised by feeding heavily into nostalgia and the massive promotion through streamers will be enough to keep the demand high for a long time without offering significant content updates. I mean, the lack of content updates is one of the main criticisms of SWTOR.

I barely have time to play this game so.... no. We tried WoW once when swtor had a the "maintannce period" and it wasnt that good. I mean, nothing against it, but its just not my type of game. It was easy to get into it, as its a swtor clone, but still, the graphics, mechanics and mostly importantly the addons make it really confusing.

Anyway, I said it before already, I would love to see swtor "era" servers like 2.0 or 3.0 I mean those patches when the game was still good!

At first i didn't know what the OP was going on about, but later in the thread it became more apparent it is a warcraft related thing. I've been toying with the idea for years if i should consider playing warcraft at any point, but it isn't like a big desire or anything of the like. however considering it is the vanilla experience in a way, it might give me the opportunity to figure this whole thing out that i've apparently missed out on.

I dunno, maybe i'll consider play this warcraft thing at some point.

At this point though i've had the most untraditional path into MMO games. i came through sim racing games and then just found my way to Star Trek Online and then to SWTOR. i no longer have any interest in Star Trek Online as the developers get further away from their product and more into hiring actors from the shows for nonsensical plots and silly mechanics instead of storytelling about their own game and their own game characters.

From what I understand, TOR's stolen everything else from WoW, so we probably will be stealing this too before long.

I never played it and I'm not really interested in playing it tbh, but I do look forward to the upcoming industry theft.

I leveled 2 characters to 60 in Vanilla and ran a level 19 Twink Guild in TBC, I subscribed to it to see classic and asked myself why am I doing this again.... Nothing new here Moving on now...

going to give Anthem a whirl I think, why not right? played everything else just about over the past 22 years 12 hours a day MMO wise. Even if I am disappointed ill still play Anthem. Mostly because ill have to spend $99.99 on it Lol

With the complete success of WoW classic, the fact that it is overshadowing even WoW retail, I think it has been proved quite successfully that people want a more group friendly, challenging game. I mean it has exploded. The number one issue I chat with retail WoW players and why they left is the same as SWTOR, they made it way to easy and solocentric. Who knows, maybe BW will take note and act on it, but i doubt it. I think right now they are up to like 35 servers all full all the time.

And as trixxie said, there are addons that can make the QoL better then this game, and more are coming. This is a movement folks, something other less popular games (ie: swtor) really needs to take note of.
