Remember way back in the WotLK days when (unknown to us at the time) New Blizzard said that 100+ character open-world battles in an MMO where technically impossible? I believe they said that the same day EVE had a 1000+ man battle (so a random Tuesday in New Eden).
Now New Blizzard is back and telling us it would be really technically difficult to put up a vanilla server. You know, the same vanilla servers that exists right now, run by small teams of volunteers and amateurs. It’s one thing for New Blizzard to assume what CCP does is some technical magic, but now they can’t even do what some amateurs are doing? Somewhere in a cave the folks at SOE are laughing.
This line is pretty great too:
One other note – we’ve recently been in contact with some of the folks who operated Nostalrius. They obviously care deeply about the game, and we look forward to more conversations with them in the coming weeks
Like you know the first question was “so… can you show us how you got old WoW to run, we can’t figure it out”. And then the guys from Nost started talking and it was glazed-eye city at New Blizzard. Total clownshow.
And as predicted, New Blizzard is going to cut their entire face off to spit their nose with some butchered understanding of ‘classis’ WoW. Yes idiots, I want to play the hot garbage that is Cata+ content, with current abortion class design. Oh and can that sweet suffering take longer? Yes? Thank you! (said no one)
This is just more New Blizzard protecting their ego, because if they do put up these abomination servers, they won’t be popular for very obvious reasons, and the idiots can say “See, we told you no one wants to play vanilla! Come join the few dozen actual people playing current WoW!”
It really is a total joke.
