Technological progress is driving the world tirelessly into the future, but this year saw many hit the brakes and go old school.
The drums of war are thundering, and the Alliance and the Horde are battling it out once again in the old world of Azeroth. That’s right, Blizzard Entertainment has recently launched World of Warcraft Classic bringing together all the characters from over the years into a striking recreation of the original pre-Cataclysm fictional world, and people are loving it!
It all began when the player community started running their own private servers with older versions of the game, but which got shut down as unauthorized servers. Backlash ensued from the WoW community, ultimately driving the developers to seek out a solution that would satisfy both sides.
When WoW Classic finally went live on August 26th, it saw hordes of people lining up to play it with waiting times of up to several hours just to log in. Not to mention the sea of players waiting for you in the starting zones once you managed to get in!
Swarms of people flocking to get their hands on the same thing… Hmm, sound kinda familiar?
