But remember, you think you do, but you don’t. Nobody actually likes vanilla it was all just nostalgia /s

I never played in Vanilla, and I love classic. I really just like how leveling feels and &*!@ in it. I started mid-late wrath, a month before they introduced the LFD system

Actually I don’t like Vanilla that much for the most part. But I do like that I don’t have to hurry and complete stuff or they reset, or new expansion comes out soon. So basically I play it more for the pacing than it’s core design.

It’s my first time in Vanilla and I’m loving it. The increased level of difficulty attaches more value to the progression, and every little thing seems to really matter.r
And the best part im my opinion is, now we’re more in touch with the world of Azeroth.

This is my thing right now. I was able to take down three bosses in Mythic Uldir before I quit for about 6 months to wrap up some large projects at work. I came back and the heroic dungeons are dropping gear that are upgrades for me. It felt super weird since I put so much time into it not even 6 months from then.

Happy that Classic is a bigger success than Blizzard stated.r

But is Time Watched even a strong indicator when view bots are bought so cheaply? You can buy endless watching of your streams by hundreds or thousands of “viewers” for just a couple bucks now.r

I dont doubt the success of Classic or that tons of people watched it but I cant really take Twitch streams as infallible evidence with how easy it can be falsified. Its a tainted source.

Thats because that WAS the WHOLE game then.You did not have to level through it more than once and still have things to do until BC came out. The more levels we gain, and have to grind out to play the latest and greatest new expansion, the more trivial those old zones should become, and current retail players should never have to go back to vanilla pacing for an alt, or to level a new race.r
r
Again, vanilla WoW was the ENTIRE game, so of course its going to take an insane amount of time, and rewards will matter. Thats all of the game you had from 2004-2007 if i remember right.

I would argue yes, because based on your statement it would imply that view bots are unique to wow classic streamers and it almost certainly isn’t. Maybe can’t use the actual numbers as gospel, but the fact that it’s viewed more than other launches, is something you could take.

True, and that is one of the reasons people are enjoying Classic, besides the mentioned reason of nostalgia.
