During WoW Classic’s early demo days I called the game “the hell we asked for.” Compared to modern World of Warcraft, with all of its conveniences and shortcuts, yeah, it is hellish. But it’s also filled with like-minded players willing to band together to see it through. It reminds me of the neighborhoods I lived in growing up in the pre-internet age when I knew my neighbors’ names and everyone was willing to help each other out. It’s an amazing feeling.
Oh man, sometimes I really miss World of Warcraft. I probably spent 10.000 hours in this game between 2005 and 2010. Easily my favorite game of all times, and a large part of that are the people I played with for many years. Even the new classic servers can’t bring that back.
