World of Warcraft Classic: CoT group

Hey all.

So I played 2 games a lot. CoH and WoW.... Blizzard has listened and is bringing back a classic server. I will be playing it.
Its the game I plan to play until CoT comes out.

Anyone else taking a dip into classic? Maybe make a "TitanCity" guild to get together in a game while we wait for our new home to be built.

I was thinking about that. I thought the vanilla hunters were the best hunters. Are we thinking Alliance or Horde?

If I had to hazard a guess it would be:
Locked (but unlockable) AQ and beyond content but quality of life patches up to release of cata.

I'm just wondering if I'd be able to do my old demonology Warlock back in the days of burning crusade/Lich King.

Also would a person need a subscription?

Also also we haven't picked a side. If blood elves are in I say Horde!

blizzard always requires money... but they provide stability and highly polished products.

I dont care what faction... I had thousands of hours dumped into my Undead priest so I wouldn't mind trying alliance out or just trying a different class on horde.

The thing is ... until those servers open ... they're vaporware.

When will they open?

What is Classic WoW? Wouldn't that mean, not playing awesome Blood Elves, no transmogging of outfits?

Depends on what Blizzard is

Depends on what Blizzard is planning to backport into vanilla, but it does mean playing the 1-60 game that existed before Blood Elves and Dranei got introduced ... meaning that Paladins are Alliance only and Shamans are Horde only.

I know nothing about WoW, I

I know nothing about WoW, I might be interested in getting into it if it is customizable and fun, and if it is relatively pick up and play. Also depends on when it will come out because I have classes every now and then throughout next year.

One of my problems with WoW

One of my problems with WoW is that, with a few exceptions, Everything is Ugly! Blasted deserts, people living in slums, or sewers, open strip mines and everywhere you go, people destroying things, instead of building or creating.

Be Well!

1) Wow is not about

1) Wow is not about customization... its about shiny shiny loot
2) Fun depends on how you like to play. Classic WoW is time = stuff... usually

3) Yes they are doing 1-60. They have not answered if they are doing paladin/shaman exclusive but DID say they were going to try to replicate the experience authentically. Which would also mean original races.

4) It seems a 50/50 split on if ppl think they will keep current models and animations... or try to datamine the old stuff into workable.

Loot is primarily gear and

Loot is primarily gear and currency (gold), so weapons and armor. It's also the primary driving force for engaging in dungeons. You get better gear which makes your character more effective. Your gear is your outfit, of course, and the "transmogrification" (which allows you to make your gear look like something else) to which Brand X alluded was not available in the original game.

If you want to play vanilla

If you want to play vanilla WoW, you can do so right now (for free) on Light's Hope, which is running private, not sanctioned by Blizzard, servers that offer an authentic vanilla gaming experience.

I vote with my wallet.
I stopped playing WoW when they removed what i liked in it
I will start paying for it again as soon as they put it back

Sadly even though I was voting with my wallet... CoH is still not being offered in a "classic" state

I might be tempted if I can role play my Troll fortune teller!

I’m more role player then raider. Think I still remember my WOW info. Had two level 90s.

--------------------------------------------------------
Personal rules of good roleplay
1.) Nothing goes as planned.
2.) If it goes as planned it's not good RP

I think Vanilla WoW cam at

I think Vanilla WoW cam at the time when MMORPG was still struggling to find its own identity.

Games like Everquest were really just roleplaying games put into an immersive 3D environment. WoW took the best ideas of them all and put them together into a smashing success. But it was still just an RPG on a computer, and it had to grow and evolve into something else due to its own success.

Now we see the results. You can't design a game to be an RPG on a computer anymore, for good or ill. The gameplay is paramount now, with story coming in a distant second. Solo players are the standard design experience now, and dependence upon a party like a table top pen&paper game is reserved for raids and dungeons. And games like GW2 tried to do away with that dependence, with limited success.

I think it would be refreshing to go back to vanilla wow and relive the days when role playing mattered; when class choice and race were decisions that mattered. When character decisions made a difference in game play.

Potential Titans:
Trap Spider - the little spider rides a big robot
Thunderbird Priest - conduit of the Thunderbird spirit
Lovebot - programmed to love man, gives tough love to mankind
Schwarzchild - singularity-manipulating time traveller is lost

It's difficult to have a

It's difficult to have a proper RPG when said game is also an MMO. It's hard to get a story to fit when "you are the chosen one, what? All those other people? Uh... They're also the chosen one... Chosen ones... Chosen many... You know what, don't think about it. Take this letter over there." Hard to make anyone feel special when everyone has to be.

FF14 does a pretty ok job, it at least acknowledges that other player characters exist in the story...

As for the gameplay aspects some people just like playing solo, so I have no problem with things made soloable that are made easier with teaming. As long as it's not done how Neverwinter was done on launch: can do all quests solo, do them multiplayer you get the same XP only split for your party, with no additional enemies or challenge than solo.

MMOs are a tough nut to do really right by me. Too many rely on quests that are just kill x of y or obtain z items... Maybe CoH spoiled MMOs for me a bit with missions that felt like they mattered, defeat all enemies in this place, save the hostage, get the thing. All quantifiable things it's not like "thanks for taking out those ten bandits now our village is saved!" When all around you the bandits are still there and the village is still on fire.

After playing Light's Hope a little bit I have to say, it's a bit like I imagine it'd be to time travel back to the '80s. It'd be very cool, but then you realize that the only "hi" you've got is hi-fi audio, 8-bit graphics are pushing the envelope, and remember to ask to be seated in the non-smoking section. Mobile phone? You mean, like, it has a really long cord? Excuse me, the inter-what?

Ha! That reminded me of watching Stranger Things. They did a great job of capturing the 80's feel.

Is the 2018 beta for COT possible? is the alpha still on track? They have a huge job here and we really dont know how far they are from having something you can log into and see. wow classic will probably be here long before opening day, its mostly already written and blizzard has a large full time staff to finish it. Looking at the different projects, I am kinda at a "I will believe it when I see it" stage. I know it takes time to do this, I cant imagine being at the stage when you have to commit your self to going full time and leaving your current employment behind. Thats a tough thing to do. I am keeping busy in swtor, but I would switch in a second given the chance.
