Bros I hope I get into the same layer as asmongold
someone explain to me what layering I'm too retarded
>>462302962sharding but based because it's in a not shit game
>>462303475okay what the fuck is sharding?
>>462302882More like sharting amirite
>hp regen without eating>mp regen without drinkingJUST LIKE VANILLA OMG TY ACTIVISION
>>462303647More like layershitting
>>462302882wow is deead.
>>462304309SO MUCH SOI I LOVE IT I LOVE IT
>>462302882>making vanilla for twitch faggots who will drop the game days after releaseblizzard is dumb.
>>462302962Basically when you log in, you're put into a "layer" of the world. As it grows to "capacity" another layer is created that will then fill up with players until it hits capacity and another layer is placed on top of that. People won't be phasing in and out as the server tries to balance populations in zones, you're in the layer you're in. They will only be doing this at the launch of Classic to avoid having 50,000 people trying to kill the same boars in Northshire. Once people start to level up and spread out throughout the world, layering will be removed and everyone will share the same space.
>>462303536It's when you have flatulence while passing a deuce
>>462304778they even add layering because TWITCH TOURISM
>>462302882I thought sharding was when you go poopoo in your pants lolololollo
>>462304309Ikr?! I want to sip onions in game to better represent me!!!! Smh!!!!We should start a change org petition, this is an outrage
never heard of her
>>462304882can someone redpill this on me why its bad? I am an adult so I don't play mmos
>>462304960layering kills pvp and communities.see: CRZ
>>462304882I knew they would fuck it up somehow.
>>462303536wehn u shidded and fard at same dime
Are healers receiving the same ridiculous MP5?
Layering is a better solution than sharding or queues and all the doomsayers will continue to get blown out as Classic draws closer to release. It's not too late to stop being a retailcuck or FF14 tranny though. There's still time to realize that your shitposting won't change anything and to enjoy the game with everyone else.
HE FUCKING DID IT! /OURZOOMER/ DELIVERED ON HIS PROMISE OF BRINGING US HOME!
>>462304882I thought 50k people fighting over the same boar was part of the experience.
>tell you home faggots they're gonna fuck it up>get called a retail shill>they fuck it up
>>462304882Is this contained to your server, or is each layer a different server? I haven't played WoW in awhile, but I absolutely fucking hated the multi-server faggotry when it came to farming old world mats or rare spawns. Instead of just having a handful of autists on your server wanting to kill shit that stopped being relevant a decade ago, you had autists from a fuckton of servers.
Now that regen is from BFA this means Shaman, Pala and Druid DPS are viable in raiding.
>>462305258why are his eyes so fucking creepy
Remember when we tricked those retailcucks into thinking we cared about community? So based, bros.
>>462305487ELE SHAMANS RISE UP. #NOTIDE
>>462304882So basically each server is partitioned. Why not just make more servers and then merge them IF they become underpopulated?
>>462305308When the game first launched in November 2004, they didn't have millions of people lining up to get in the door. They had a slow and steady trickle. Why do you think the launch of every expansion through MoP was an insane madhouse? Because of the huge bottleneck at the start of every expansion's zone with millions of people trying to get through the front door. With layers, which again, they say should only be in place at the start of the xpac so you don't have 50k people after the same boar, it should prevent thousands of people in the same place crashing the servers.>>462305480No linked servers. If you're on the server Whisperwind, you will only ever see people from Whisperwind. If you're on Doomhammer, you will only ever see people from Doomhammer.
>>462305534He's a bit of a bugman. Not full bugman like some others, but he's got those bug eyes.
> infinite mana / don't give a shit about drinking to regen> mobs deal no damage> BFA animationsWOW SO MUCH HOME BROS TOTALLY THE VANILLA EXPERIENCE
>>462304309You're aware that there's a 5 seconds rule for mana, right?
>>462305308It is, fuck blizzard
>>462305258this guy cant even clean his roomwhy do people idolize a hermit
>>462305707Because each server can hold a certain number of people... but spread out across the entire game world. When the game launches the entire server population will be in one of six locations depending on what races they roll. It's 10k people each in six zones with the other 20+ empty... while later it will be 200-500 people each in 20+ zones.
>>462305710I googled it WoW had 200k players launch day.
>>462302882>barely killed a 3 levels higher rare with 2 people and using all cds and potionslooks ok
>>462303536Ten people in the same zone. Six of those people are miners, with only four ore nodes. The server hides the remaining players to you, and makes them appear in their own sharded version of the same exact area. The obvious problem is that you'll notice your computer eating resources, when the area seems dead. Because the server is actively telling your computer to hide the appearance of the people...when their stats and data are still very much there.
>>462305718>He's a bit of a bugman.hes 150% bugman
>>462305875I will never understand how people can look up to and suck streamer dick so fuckin much. Like what goes through these peoples minds. Ide unironically would love to meet one of these people who donates 10k a month to streamers and ask them why.
Daily reminder all mobs in vanilla had thematic armor and magic resist, so if a stone elemental would have more armor because hes a stonePrivate servers dont have this, all raid bosses have about the same stats. And people think private servers are blizzlike
>>462302882Why didn't they just fucking raise respawn rate, how fucking retarded could blizzard be, this is worse than sharing.
more like sharting am I right?
How is he doing double the damage of a mob 4 lvls higher than him with a 1 handed starting zone sword
>>462306039yeah i remember those dryads in Ashenvale being a bitch to kill on my mage.
>>462306039in blizz classic 5lvl can solo rare 9lvl
>people saying faster regen>BFA regen of all thingsI'm out of the loop, this isn't true is it?
>>462306221you mean 4 people?
>>462306179because he is THE GOD GAMER and THE face of Classic
>>462306179Why does he always look like he has double digit IQ?
>>462302882> bros, i have really dire news, a warrior and a paladin are shitting on OUR early game vanilla content, how can this be> in my vanilla i had to spend 10 minutes eating after every mobhave sex incels, game is great
>>462306179battleshout + might + human sword racial
>>462306089>this is worse than sharing.How?
>>462303475>It's in a not shit gameHold up
>>462305915And here are when servers were rolled onlinehttps://wowwiki.fandom.com/wiki/Timeline_of_the_creation_of_US_realmsSo all 200k players were spread out across all those servers. I'm betting Classic will have somewhere between 1-2 million people at launch.
>>462306179He's using a hammer looted from kobold mine. He has Battle Shout and Blessing of Might due to Esfand being with him.
>>462305258our guyworld first deadmine clear inc
>>462306179That is called a Heroic Strike, a Warrior ability which costs rage and adds a fixed amount of bonus damage to your next melee swing. The shittier your weapon is, the bigger the bonus appears to be.
>>462304309Was there seriously zero regen in vanilla or are you just a cunt? Wrathbabby here.
>>462306089The game has always had dynamic spawn rates. The more people killing mobs, the faster they respawn.
>>462304882nothing can be worse than CRZ, at least with layers the people are actually on your server and can be guilded/traded with
>>462306253People have been shitposting with straight up misinformation and lies since the first Classic thread. What do you think? Regen has ALWAYS seemed faster in 1-5 zones. Go do it on a private server right now if you don't believe me. Now that streamers are reaching the actual starting zones things are getting harder.
>>462306454Just a shitposter, try your best to ignore xir.
>>462306463yup you could only regen with water.
>>462304882So it's just instancing?
>>462306437>1 hand white weapon vs a melee armored mob 4 lvls higher than you
this is the "people" shilling for wow classicnoticed anything? *sips tea
>>462306614you also couldn't hit mobs that were 3 levels above you
>>462306674here you go anon
>>462306508Is that what people are using for reference? The starting area regen rates? Well, that's a relief. I remember well the regen rates.
Funny how people forget that WoW already had a system to handle heavy loads. Resources and enemies spawned faster if they're killed faster. So if 50 people were camping Hogger, Hogger would be spawning about 3 seconds after he died. Splitting the server is just them being too cheap to invest in better infrastructure. Instead of increasing the capacity of their infrastructure, they are just breaking it up into smaller pieces and selling it to you as "how you don't have to wait!"MMOs at their best were never about the fast burn. 90% of your time in game was either waiting or traveling. WoW isn't that much different, except they're trying to make everything faster across the board because all of you are fucking ADHD children. It's amazing they haven't replaced flight paths with teleports.
I'm watching Sodapoppin's stream and it looks like classic. Original animations, quite slow mana and health regen--which picks up out of combat. He runs out of mana if he wraths/moonfires mobs. He has to heal his warrior friend, despite being in a party, because they pulled several mobs. Look like home.
>>462305109Part of the experience is teaming up and coordinating with people if the zones are saturated. Also, multiple instances of the world = more resources = more shit being dumped into the economy. If someone is getting shat on in PvP they can just get invited to a different layer and avoid it (you stay on the same layer until you get invited to another group, which is frequent during leveling)Also, it's Actiblizzard who have already lied about how long it's going to be implemented. First, they said it was only going to be during launch. Now, it's known as "layering" and it's going to be for actual months of gameplay. And it will probably not ever be removed just because it's a product of the legion engine and making the game have an actual infrastructure again would require a lot of coding effort. Basically it kills the persistent world and also has detrimental effects on the economy and PvP

>>462306901>And it will probably not ever be removedIt won't. You don't invest that much time and resources into a design only to throw it away after a few months. Layering will never go away. Their PR team just told them not to say that yet.
>>462306179You do realize this is the game where even max level dungeon bosses spend like 3 seconds casting a nuke that hits about as half as hard as mage players nuke... right? Vanilla wow was considered ultra casual and ezmode and it was true.
>>462307038>armored mobThis isn't a thing.

>>462307157mobs like turtles certainly have more armor than normal mobs.
>>462307124What they will say next is this:>"You guys misunderstood! We meant layering would stay in the game as it was needed!

>>4623070984 yous, Why bother?but thanks, will remake for next homefags thread
>>462305707Because that would cost more money and activision blizzard is looking to make an easy buck here.
Was literally playing ‘alongside’ Asmongold on a private server. If anything, the pserver was more generous because I was finding a shit ton more bags and trash loot. Combat seemed about 90% identical in terms of difficulty, had I been with a paladin partner.
HOME, HOME, WE HOME, WE FINALLY HOMEEEEEEEEEEEE
>>462305249hah yeah im gonna love jumping layers to farm rares and black lotus. BASED blizzard.
>>462306874>Flight paths replaced for teleportsYou just had a kino idea anon. Time to flood the forums
>>462305707Shutting off layers is probably a trivial operation while merging servers isn't. You have to identify the server to shut down, kick everyone off it and merge the data into the new server, making sure there are no naming conflicts or anything like that. And this is before you consider resource efficiency from a purely cost standpoint.
>You nostalgiacucks will NEVER EVER get vanilla*Classic announced*>Ok, well, they just did that to shut people up. They're not actually gonna do it.*Updates come out about development*>Alright, but they'll definitely ruin it with things like LFR and cross realm zoning!*LFG, CRZ, cash shop, etc. all deconfirmed*>W-well. they're lazy and definitely won't recreate the game right*BTFO private server values, go the extra mile to implement spell batching, old energy regen rates, debuff limits, etc.*>Loot trading and sharding will kill Classic!

>>462307156Coming from Everquest, I remember being amazed at 2 things. First, how retardedly easy it was because dying meant nothing at all (In Everquest, if you died, you lost as much as 2 weeks progress depending on your level). And secondly, it was irritating as fuck that monsters never missed. The formula was completely different than Everquest where hits and misses were a lot better in tune with your stats. And the enemy's stats. All mobs had different hit and evasion rates, and got morale boosts as more and more dogpiled you. If that happened in WoW, kiting would be non-existent.
>>462306725They're all wh**e>this is theunlike you
>>462306330Because the average american does. There are only like 15 countries in the world that has an average IQ above 100 and america is not one of them.
>>462307186DELETE THIS RIGHT NOW
Playing the beta is fun and nostalgic but I'm not feeling like it's worth the hype.
>>462307714NOOOOOOOOOO DELETE DELETE!!!!!!
>>462307748Nooo vanilla was the hardest thing ever I know this because I started in WotLK which was the BEST xpac!!!
>>462304716Your game is dead too lol
>>462307186Do enemies not dodge at all? No missed swings?
>>462307996It's literally e-celebs and streamers hyping it up because they get paid by Blizzard doing so.
Never played a Paladin in vanilla (Rogue & Shaman player, stopped playing in WotLK), going to play one in Classic, what am I in store for?
>>462308157Wearing cloth and being a healbot. Unironically.They cant tank and cant dps.
>>462307996Most of the people hyping it never actually played between 2004 and 2006. Those of us that did really don't give a fuck. I quit playing around 2009. And I have zero desire to ever play an MMO again in my life.In fact, I'm pretty angry at Blizzard for trying to bait old users into the hamster wheel. Most people can't balance their lives and MMOs at the same time. Blizzard is basically a bunch of drug dealers say "Hey, come have one more taste, for old time's sake." and it's just really scummy. They waited to play this card until the last minute - when the knew WoW was going to shit. If they really cared about making players happy, they would have done it 8 years ago.
>>462302882But classicfags are saying layering is the same shit and that they won't play it because it's thereWhat a stupid image
>>462307996Did you have to have a sub to get in?
>>462308157playing with one hand
>>462305940>The obvious problem is that you'll notice your computer eating resources, when the area seems dead. Because the server is actively telling your computer to hide the appearance of the people...when their stats and data are still very much there.That's not how it works at all. It's separate instances.
WTF DUDE ASMON AND OTHER DUDE DIED TO A LVL 15, WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!
>>462308285I have a sub yeah.
>>462306330Because he has double digit IQHave you ever seen his room?
>>462306852It scales off weapon damage
>>462306874>MMOs at their best were never about the fast burn. 90% of your time in game was either waiting or traveling.unfortunately the majority of people can't do that anymore. when we were younger and only had to worry about school it wasfine, now people have jobs and they don't want to spend the majority of their free time doing that stuff. mmos don't bring in kids anymore, they'd prefer to session based multiplayer games now, so developers have to change their mmos to target the working people that don't have the luxury to spend 90% of their game time walking around or waiting for something
>>4623077482 weeks is a bit of an exaggeration. If you died in a common leveling area at a high level you could almost always get a nearly complete rez and even if you couldn't it took like 5 or 6 hours tops with a decent xp group.
>>462307186The fuck is this? They should be doing more damage than that even at such a low level
>>462308224>>462308321>>462308435I'm going Rogue again, fuck this.
>layering is ok, it doesn't even matterwelcome home, OH NO NO NO NO NO NO
>>462305109>can someone redpill this on me why its badBECAUSE IT WASNT IN ORIGINAL CLASSIC
>>462308510You die on a hell level with no rez, 2 weeks easy.
>>462307748easy/hard is a gross oversimplification though. In many cases Warcraft has a higher skill ceiling, while Everquest has a higher skill floor and is far more punishing. You can be a complete shitter in WoW and still progress. In EQ, if you fail at a baseline competence you'll be fucked and will be lucky to make it past level 20 without rage-quitting. EQ also has no bumpers and safety rails like WoW. If you accidentally hit the attack button when talking to your level 60 class trainer, you'll be killed instantly. In WoW, you're not even allowed to attack your own quest-givers and friendly-faction NPCs.On the other hand, most classes in WoW are more complex than most EQ classes. There are a lot more abilities, a lot more decisions to make, the pace of the game is much quicker, and there's no godlike crowd-control class to solve every multi-mob situation (Enchanter). Playing a class to optimal effectiveness is harder in WoW, and coordinating a team to optimal effectiveness is also harder in WoW. The difference is that for most of the PvE game, WoW doesn't demand anywhere near optimal effectiveness. Meanwhile, in EQ making any significant mistake is likely to lead to death or a full wipe.
>>462308985It's literally a better queue system. Debate me.
>>462307748>first MMO experience was UO private servers>could potentially lose fucking everything when someone kills you or if you die and someone finds your corpse before you get to it>thieves could steal your shit in "guarded" cities toowhat I will always remember the most from the first time I ever played wow was how I shed a tear when I discovered what food and water were for and how that killed the downtime, something already ingrained in my brain after a few years of MMO hoppingand also leveling through quests alone and being able to do so on my own
>>462307186Caster mobs at this level always did low damage retard. Same thing with the imps in Valley of Trial. They never did fucking 15-20 damage with their fireballs, they always did regular 4-5 damage.
>>462308985Know what else wasn't in classic? HD resolution. >WHERE'S THE NVIDIA AD IN THE GRAPHICS MENU!?
this isn't vanilla, it's vanilla BFA edition.
Wait I thought they were only doing that cross realm server shit at the starting zones, did they change that?
>>462309294There was never going to be cross-realm anything, Are you retarded?
>>462309294yeah it's everywhere for the entire first phase at least.
>>462305308yeah, well, you think you do, but you don't
Face facts retailcucks, Classic leveling is harder than any mythic raid encounter.
WTF DUDE ASMON ALMOST DIED TO A 1V1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
bros....this isnt home....
>>462309147>far more punishing.Discipline and Skill. WoW takes no discipline. You can fuck off and listen to the radio during raids because minor slip-ups won't change anything. That wasn't true in Everquest. You needed discipline just as much as skill. If you slipped in front of a mob for a split second, you could wipe the raid.
>>462309405Crossrealm BGs are confirmed lmao
bros....we're finally going home....
>>462309294it's "layering" aka sharding, and it's in.
>>462306365Dude, WoW plain didn't work for like a week straight. The launch was a disaster.
this will never get as popular as old school runescape
>>462305707Why make more servers knowing you're going to have to merge them in a week after everyone has spread out across the world, instead of having an automated system that does the same thing by instancing a single server?>>462309294layering is the polar opposite of cross-realm
>>462305905But I want thousands of people in each starting zone
>>462309147>there's no godlike crowd-control class to solve every multi-mob situation (Enchanter)As someone who's main was an enchanter, you're grossly oversimplifying their role. They had to tash, slow, mez, and before KEI buffing clarity every 6 minutes. The only reason WoW doesn't have "godly crowd control" is because you're able to tank 30 mobs at once. In Everquest, each additional mob was 25% stronger than the one standing next to it. By the time you 4 mobs on you, fuck it, you're dead. Mez was essential.
Everyone who is bitching about layering now: you won't need to worry about layering in a few months after the hype dies down and people hit that level 30 slog to 40 and quit. There won't be any layers because there will barely be a few thousand people playing at a given time. It's fine.
>>462309630Why do you think they need layering?
>>462309602Except those were actually in vanilla.
So this about the perfect time to get into WoW for someone who has never played WoW, eh?
>>462306365>I'm betting Classic will have somewhere between 1-2 million people at launch.Depends on how they price it. If they try that $60 + $15/month shit, it will be less than 1mil. Some people simply want to try it, not actually invest in it. And a high upfront cost will run them off.
>>462310094No, absolutely not. I say this as someone who played WoW a lot from 2005 onward. Do literally anything else with your time.
>>462310053Certainly not because the initial launch was so smooth(it wasn't) because of low initial pressure(there wasn't).You're just making shit up as you go along. Your word means less than nothing. The WoW launch was a disaster.
>>462306614>yup you could only regen with water.Why do people keep saying this shit? HP and Mana always regened after you stopped casting for a few seconds and left combat. That is why MP/5 exists. It's sole purpose was in-combat regen, and it stood independent from the innate regen.
>>462309294Yep. Blizzard backpedaling and falling down the slippery slope as usual
>layeringWE WERE SUPPOSED TO BE GOING HOME BROS WTF
Changes you wish they would implement. Let's hear em.I'll start. >Haircuts from Wrath at character creation.
>>462310393Know what the alternative is to layering? Not being able to log in and play the game because of server overload.
vanilla isn't that hard, any decent solo class can make it to 40+ with zero deaths
>>462310453I'm still waiting for them to add the aerial dogfights. How did they even get away with such blatant false advertisement?
>>462310453Talents that are BG excusive, or some way for you to be able to re-spec when the change only affects BG pvp.
>>462310249Why do you need a smooth launch?
>>462309812>you're grossly oversimplifying their roleNo, I just didn't take pains to elaborate on the challenges of playing an Enchanter. The fact is that no matter how challenging it might have been to play an EQ Enchanter, they still solved crowd control without help from any other character (except perhaps a healer and good puller who kept adds manageable).The presence of enchanters in Everquest eliminates the need for 99% of the potential decision-making for other group members. Everyone else just mindlessly hits /assist and attacks when the leader says so. Second-tier CC abilities like root were never used. Off-tanking was never used, unless mobs were immune to mez in which case enchanters wound up sitting on their thumbs, Enchanters were the only class that routinely hated NTOV.
>>462310550Same as any other blizzard launch, same as private servers, nobody cares
>>462310550like godblizz intended before satanvision took over
>>462310550Know what is alternative to vanilla? Playing retail.
>>462310104All Classic requires is a wow sub which is just $15 a month. You don't even need to have the newest xpac.
>>462307186OH NO NO NO NO NO
>>462310614Dont you technically do that in some instances or raids during WOTLK?
What's with the blatant misinformation and doom saying that contradicts what the developers are saying and showing?
>>462310614they had gay ass aerial combat in icecrown
>>462310550This happened pretty much every major patch day for the 10 years I played. It was never more than 45 minutes. "Oh noes, now I have to go do laundry and dishes or browse 4chan while waiting". It really was not a big deal. Fucking addicts.
>White birthrate continuing to fall>mass migration increasing>climate change Eschaton approaching>automation about to wipe out all the jobs>now Layering ENOUGH
>>462310881>Trusting blizzard any timeFuck off shill
>>462310674>>462305710>>462306365The launch was a disaster. 200k was massively over projections, there were constant queues and crashes. Stop talking out of your ass, you fucking idiot.
why did beta start and I'm not in
>>462310881because doomposters have nothing better to do than to shitpost.

Fucked up on chinkdale and have to do the Hearts of the Pure for my succ, what level should I be to invade the northern Wetlands?
>>462310550even nu-wow launches had that, i remember cata and mop logging in and being in queue and just going to bed and playing the next day, who cares.go fuckyourself with all this sharding/layeringcrz nonsense .
>cap worlds/shards/layers to maybe 2k people>have tons of worlds/shards/layers that people can freely choose from in case one is too fullRunescape proving that it's the superior mmorpg once again
>>462310981Why do you need a smooth launch? Answer me blizzdrone
>>462310718>they still solved crowd control without help from any other characterCrowd control was a team effort. There were multiple mez spells. The ones with the lowest resist rates also broke randomly. Which means everyone drops fucking everything and stands completely still and waits for it be be re-mezzed while the main mob continues to beat on the tank and the loose mob is going after the cleric, then after the mob is mezzed, they move the active mob away so it doesn't get hit (mez broken) in the crossfire. What fucking game were you playing?
>>462310881Are you new here?
>>462310718>Second-tier CC abilities like root were never used. Off-tanking was never used,these were constantly used. and clerics could and did mez undead. you had shit groups.
>>462311207KR MMO's has been doing "channels" that you can choose from since forever.You choose a region server and then you can switch between lots of channels with like a 15min CD.
the game is figured out. you know how to beat Rag. you know where to farm. EVERYTHING is known.that's the problem with vanilla.
>>462311518>what are private servers>why are people playing themretard
>>462311518why is it not fun if it's known?
>start getting ganked while leveling>get friend to invite me to his group>jump to his layer and escape the gankersCant wait to dab on all the griefers lol
imagine playing the ugliest fucking race/gender combo with the worst animation set in the game with the intent of never leaving noggenfogger/deviate delight costumes at endgame just so you can feel different (above) from the average person
>>462311704most people will quit cause they are "bored".zoomers have no attention span.
>>462311978Why does a game need a million people for you to want to enjoy playing it?
>>462305487Wait they changed things so certain classes aren't useless?
>>462309630>>462310981Remember that website someone made, that just showed a picture of the character select screen with an absurdly long queue (like 10k+) slowly ticking down while the chorus of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=monCWKHC8Vw played in the background.Good times boys
>>462310614>We're adding flying in TBCFucking awesome!>Get to level 70>It's just swimming in the air
>>462311857Imagine typing all of this out like any of it matters
>>462312117raids need peopleno players = no people to run content with
>>46231223140 people, 20-25 for ony, mc, bwl, zg
>>462312231oh wow so you're telling me that Classic won't even have 40 people, sad
>>462311857t.tranny ally nef or human healslut
>>462312176>got this exact same reaction>"h-haha well maybe they'll improve it later and this is just a placeholder!">it wasn't
>>462311857> tfw rolling female tauren and commissioning porn of said charactersucks to be you
>>462311250>Which means everyone drops fucking everything and stands completely stillExactly. Everyone else stops playing the game while the enchanter does his work. Then you can start playing again (doing your mindless attacks or debuffs) once the mobs are mezzed again.This shit your describing is not challenging for a group. Yes, it's exacting. If you fuck it up, everyone dies. But it's not hard at all for anyone except the Enchanter. Anyone making it to high levels of Everquest could do this shit without thinking about it. The only challenge is not falling asleep from sheer boredom.WoW doesn't demand perfect coordination and punish the slighest mistake with a wipe. But, if you want to control a crowd as effectively as EQ, multiple characters must ACTIVELY coordinate (not just play with their dicks for 10 seconds waiting for the enc). The Mage can polymorph one, the rogue can sap another one, a warlock might use succubus mez or fear. Maybe you'll use the mage Root as well.This is actually much harder to do well. The difference is that mobs are easier and fucking up isn't punished with instant death and even if someone dies it's no big deal.
>>462311857pleb, femtaur a cute
>>462312176What were you expecting? The inability to stop moving forward?
so barrens has like 3 fucking people in itwhy did they release to only a small amount of streamers?
>>462312854I was expecting flying to have some movement mechanics that made it interesting and fun. I was hoping for some quests that would teach you how to fly, and that being "good" at flying would be something revered. All they did it make it so you could "swim" in the air. If you lag, you even use the swimming animation if you dismount in the air.I just expected too much I guess.
>>462313245They had the Netherwing flying quests.
>>462313000>so barrens has like 3 fucking people in itworks on my layer :)
>oh fug i sharded :DDDDD
>Got a beta download>Not going to play itI don't want to go back. It was shit then, and it'll be worse shit now. Nostalgia only helps so much.
>>462310798why would I sub for botched """classic""" wow when I could play REAL vanilla for free
>>462313789>real vanilla>wrong regen>wrong armor and magic resist>no pathing mobs>their own qol changeslol
the game is ruined>regen isn't even rightguess mana batteries aren't needed for raids anymore :)))

I'm so glad this game is going to do well. The amount of assblast its generating is great.
>>462314279The earthmother calls
>>462314438The regen is not wrong, you're all just retarded zoomers who never played in vanillaat levels <15 health and mana regened stupidly fastFucking retarded twitch zoomers parroting mindlessly
>>462314438All of those points are wrong. Nice try though.
I'm pretty happy that if you play on a pvp server you will never see streamers because they're too scared to
>>462310550>Server overloadYou know there is a reason why they had multiple realms right? If chink infested russki private servers can handle 8000+ people then is it safe to assume that a 3000 population ran by a multi billion dollar company can function properly? if one of the realms is overpopulated then you pick another one zoomer
>>462314562Fuck off retard, casters had to drink from 0 to full every 3 mobs
>>462306347The only buff is devotion aura dumbass
If they dont shard or layer then you literally cant play at launch.Honestly give no fucks, by the time you're 20 its going to be gone anyway.
>>462314961achievements are overrated and pathetic is subjectivelet people have fun, we're all going to die, life and the world sucks so enjoy what you can

>>462315021Why can't you? Oh yeah they won't pay for servers
people will get bored of this in under a month after release

>>462315090Nigga that never works. Everyone wants to play on the most popular servers. Doesnt matter if you have 10 or 100 servers a handful will get overpopulated and the others will be barren.
>>462314581Dumbest post ever. Let's go point by point again, shall we?>wrong engineFactual, we're using bfa client not 1.12>shardingFactual, it's just called layering this time.>no progressive lootFactual, and confirmed by blizzard themselves. Takes about 3 seconds to google.>nu-alterac valleyFactual, and once again confirmed by blizzard in the classic PvP information>bright as fuck nightsFactual, you can look into comparasion pictures yourself, or just test it yourself.>wrong regenFactual, a mage was regenerating mana while spamming fireballs, this is not possible at level 5.>can mount up in booty bayFactual, and not blizzlike. Multiple sources have reported on this.>talents not workingFactual, multiple talents currently do not work.In short, go fuck yourself zoomer.
>people are already getting boredaaaaaaaahahahahahahahahahaha
>>462303536A technique that allows you to play MMOs solo without any other people bothering youIt can't be disabled btw
>>462315354>zoomer so used to playing games that dont leave early access he thinks beta is the full gametheres a reason why the bug reporter exists.
>>462315381What do you mean, don't people find doing the most generic "kill X or collect X items" for hours and hours while you only press 1-2 buttons to kill mobs fun?Must be zoomers alright.
>>462315323>Everyone wants to play on the most popular serversAnd now nobody can! Hooray!
>>462305135Who fucking cares about PvP? That shit only belongs in instanced battleground settings anyway. World PvP is cancer.
>>462315285Look at his hp regen, mongoloid.
>>462315381>Getting bored of something that pays the moneyDumbass this is their job of course they are bored
>>462314961My life was even more pathetic during vanilla. I was 22. Still unemployed. Parents were extremely disappointed and worried about me. Now I'm 37, have a wife, a step son, make 70k a year. I'm ready to go home.
>>462315625Its the same as what level 4s in the classic beta are regen'ing
>>462315520AHAHA HAHA OH MY GOD ITS OVER
>>462315539I've played blizzard games for the better part of my life and I can tell you that after about cataclysm the game has been the same as it was in beta pmuch everytime. Hundreds of people report the same bugs yet it never gets fixed for release, the blizzard you knew and loved is long gone, what makes you think they would actually fix shit this one time?
>>462314961>nobody has ever enjoyed a private server0/10, you tried
>>462304309or maybe it's just upped to allow less downtime for more testing? Genius.
>>462315647Are you going to be playing the game with your wife's son?
>>462315647>have a wife>a step sonMY WIFES SON
>>462306179that's one ugly dude
All I literally want is a blizzard run private server that won't be shut down and this is what they're giving. I'm happy. Fuck corrupt Pservers and their chink/russian pops.
>>462315606There is nothing they can do to change human behavior, this is an issue all MMOs have had.
>>462315817>>462315790It's the most manly thing a dude can do is to take responsibility for your lover's son and raise him as your own. No boy deserves not to have a caring, kind father. That boy will grow up to be a good man with anon's influence in his life. My biological dad was a stepdad to my older brother.
>>462305258>Search "Safe Haven reaction">Half of vids belongs to AssmongolSTOP PUSHING HIM.
>Retailfags are so desperate to pretend vanilla is bad their only ammo is a temporary feature which has to be used to prevent the servers dying in the first week Yeah because we would ALL love another Diablo 3 launch. Sharding is 100% acceptable for the first few weeks STAY MAD AND HAVE SEX RETAILFAGS.
>>462315960It's a bigger problem nowadays with twitch and e-celeb cancer. Although I agree it was always a problem to an extent.
>>462315781>>462315790>>462315817HAHAH WOW HILARIOUS MEME >LE KEK KUCK KEK BASEDBOY ONIONS ONIONS KEK VASECTOMY!!!!He is the best son I could've asked for and we're hoping to conceive another one in September. At least I will pass on my lineage in some way while you permavirgins family trees will die with you.
>>462307714layering is worse than sharding if sharding was only going to be in the starter zones
>>462316089Okay the first reply was genuine and you're a dick for lumping me with those other two trolls.>>462316004>>462316004
>>462315710nah.Filtered your autistic rant tho
>>462316004the only time being a step father is acceptable, is to marry a widow. if you marry a woman who married a deadbeat youre just enabling bad behavior
>>462316067It's never going away, blizzard knows you cucks will just suck it up anyway. They might even add LFR later down the line because you'll still be too much of a cuck to quit.
>>462316184SEETHING HAVE SEX KEK
>>462307748EQ was orders of magnitude harder than WoW. These faggots complaining about mana regen rate, even at it's slowes, mana regen in WoW was superpowered compared to EQ (where one had to stare at a spellbook for 5-10 minutes)
>>462306454Yeah, there was almost none.
>>462316175It hurts being proven wrong, but you can grow from this experience. Next time you should do actual research on the topic you're discussing to prevent embarrassment like this. Also go to bed, it's getting late and you have school tomorrow.
>>462309501no it's not, but that doesn't make it worse
>>462316237runescape takes tons of time to progress to 99 , doesnt make it a better game
>>462316237No fucking shit? Everyone knows this dude. World of warcraft was the casual MMO when it released, what's funny is that in the current market it's a pretty hardcore one. What the fuck happened to this genre?
>>462315647Maybe you could play Classic WoW with your wife's son.
>>462315960But they can just put everyone on the same server like they did for every other game and people will enjoy it. Now, nobody enjoys it. Sharding is some stupid shit and you are dumb for defending it
>>462316085I always did it because I always wanted to be on the most 'alive' server, that mentality obviously applies to lots and lots of people.You can pick any random MMO and look at their server populations, the first server in the list that normally appears there is going to attract more people, if its filtered alphabetically then its going to be that server and if its population based then whatever got the highest pop at launch will sustain itself. You cant force people to certain servers because you have to let people play with friends, so if people can one way or another pick servers they will abuse that mechanic to get onto the server they want (which will be the most alive one)I always through the best thing to do is increase exp/gold rates on less popular servers and have it scale. So near death servers give a lot more progress, and alive servers give normal. Give people a carrot for being on less popular servers and keeping them alive as well as spread out.
>Soda peaking at 45k viewers>Asmon peaking at 40k viewers>Towelie peaking at 2k viewers>TipsOut peaking at 1.2k viewersWHY ARENT THEY WATCHING OUR BROS THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO BE THE NEW FACES OF VANILLA IT WAS THEIR TURN
>>462306347>>462306370He only has devotion aura you disgusting shill piece of shit.It seems that people were right about the blizzdrone shills around here
>>462316387at least with old school runescape they gave you the exact classic game with no strings attached and for a year it was fantastic and now it's shit because they couldn't resist ruining it with so ypdatesclassic wow is going to be shit from the very start
>>462316067You're the retail fag though, blizzdrone
>>462316089Ok, cuck. Have fun with your used goods and taking care of someone elses son. You probably play a heal slut too.
>>462316480>But they can just put everyone on the same server like they did for every other game and people will enjoy it.I know you're trolling but no server can do that and no MMO has or ever will do it except for niche ones.
>>462315647>>462316004>>462316089LMAO, look at this assblasted cuck and laugh.
>>462316530Shouldn't tips have more? HE MADE THE GUILD AND IS GM
>>462316517I don't think it matters in vanilla, but in TBC onwards being on a good PvP server is essential I feel.
>tfw you get on the same layer as sodapoppin and write OMEGALUL in chat
>>462316530>thinking anyone wants to watch others play video games>thinking views dictates popularity>thinking we give a shit about your eceleb idiocyBack to shittid you go.
Guys...watching a stream of the beta. There are the action animations of the warrior swinging an axe....it's not vanilla animation. it's retailWHYWHYYYYYcome ON. WHY?!?!?? are you serious. this is such a massive dealbreaker for me...something as basic as, animation the fucking game as it was in """"CLASSIC""""amazing how much hype got killed for me in the span of 1 day. unreal how out of touch blizzard is
>>462316608You know what I mean retard. There is literally no need for sharding, the blizzard Devs have gone mad with power
>>462316630Have you ever had sex? Go away
>>462316682Good just meaning popular. Obviously each type of server will have one dominating server. Also PvP is for fags
>>462316530>"viewers"Viewbots are not real viewers, anon.
>>462316067>Sharding is 100% acceptable for the first few weeks STAY MAD AND HAVE SEX RETAILFAGS.Look at this vanillacuck calling out retailfags while defending retail features at the same time.
>>462316760Why are you asking me? Do you want me to fuck your wife or something!?
>>462316719don't play the game then no one cares classic has updated animationsgtfo out with your autism
>>462316812PvP is fun. I don't really understand how you can hate PvP if you're interested in classic at all, it's one of the bigger reasons to play it. Fighting pve mobs gets boring
>>462316880>>462316567Its not a retail feature, its a modern feature of server architecture. If Blizzard has this tech back when WOW first launched they would be stupid not to use it.Here is your last (you) trolls
>>462316684>tfw you donate all your gold to Sodapoppin so he can buy a mount and he makes a PogChamp face then says your name on stream
>>462302882layering is different from sharding though sharding is permanent and random, sharding is pre-generated, continuous and then will be turned off after Phase 2 or 3 or whenever
>>462316530twitch is dying, zoomers are already bored with it
Are world firsts to 60 from streamers going to count if they get a free mount from donated gold? 100% SKIPs allowed
>>462317027I dont remember sharding in vanilla
>>462316890you gtfo you shill fuck
>>462317002Because its depth-less. If I wanted PvP with purpose I would go play EvE or even RS. WoW World PvP is just being a dick for no purpose over and over and instanced is not even a part of the MMO its basically a side game tacked onto the experience.From day 1 the plan should have been to release new land where clans can own land and PvP each other for resources and map control. Modern MMOs have completely lost the plot with their instanced bullshit. It is not a MMO feature and never should never be included.
>>462317172>watching other people play video gamesmore cuck than letting a bull bang your girl

>>462317027It is a retail feature lol
my brainlet finally figured out the differencesharding happens because the servers are fucking deadlayering happens because the servers are filled to the brim
Ah, I love the feeling of dying 15-30 times while leveling and I'm glad these streamers get to see what real wow is like. Not that silly shit in retail.
>>462317582>A bunch of twitch celebrity blizzard marketers who never played vanilla will report these bugsThink again
>>462317663Well, sharding also happens when servers are filled, but they are constantly trying to balance the people between shards.
>>462317663Layering happens because blizzard are incompetent
>>462317314faggots like u are the cancer of this gameyou probably were all agaisnt classic before it was announcedgo eat shit
>calling a duel on a pve server PVPingHAHAHAHAHA
>>462310193Really late to respond but if you're still here, care to explain why?
If you play this game for any other reason besides griefing retail layering shills for 16 hours straight you're a cuck.
>>462303536open world mmo aids
>>462315354>a feature is literally in the blizzard client, coded by blizzard, chosen by blizzard, and hosted by blizzard>not blizzlikeholy fuck you nerds are delusionalbuy a gun and keep it handy for when Classic launches so you can finally visit vanilla stormwind for real
>>462318278How can you grief me if I can just ask to be invited to some dungeon and then immediately leave the group once I'm in a new layer
>>462311316It's mild hyperbole.You're missing the point that the crowd control gameplay is simply much richer in World of Warcraft. You can't deny it. All you can do is point at the lower difficulty level and claim it doesn't matter, which I never argued.
>>462318318It's nice of you zoomers to expose yourself so easily. You can't mount in Booty Bay in vanilla, but you can in the classic version right now, it is wrong.
>>462318357Oh sorry sweet but we're going to be on all the layers ;)
>>462317872>a clever solution to an impossible problem>is very temporary>is somehow badGo fuck your self, brainlet.

>>462316560people were bitching his whole stream about the game being piss easy because he had a pally heals and buffslut on his ass. I didn't even open that image. but if you really want to break this shit down then let's fucking go.9 max damage non-crit on the mace. warriors gain 2 melee attack power per strength point. at level 10 a warrior has 27 strength. so that's 54 attack power which increases your base DPS by 1 for every 14 attack power. that's 4 damage from strength attack power. for a total 13 max non-critical damage on a mining mallet. heroic strike at rank 2 which he got at level 8 adds 21 damage to the strike. so max he could hit for would be 34. he hit for 25.
>people using their experience on shitty private servers as "blizzlike" yall are fuckin retarded
>>462305875>>462306007B-but he makes epic reactions to things and gets triggered when people send him anime haha! He's totally not like the other 4000 popular streamers who do the exact same shit as him, right?

it looks good to me. You guys are starved for another Tortanic.
>>462318741It was impossible to mount in bb or blackrock in actual retail vanilla. Private servers confirmed to be more accurate than "classic" shitshow.
>>462318980Its even worse hes not the one who makes reaction vids other people do and upload them. Hes so lazy he cant even be bothered to clip out his own reactions after a stream and make some more money.

>>462319302Why would they split the population if the server isn't full? Based retard
>>462319190>sharding: people phase>layering: people are filtered into shardsit's worse actually. you will never see another layer.
>>462319170But raids need 1sp for +10% debuff once 16 debuff slots are available
>>462319737so that people can actually log into the game, instead of having 1k people sat in a queue
I'm watching a stream. There are so many little things that are wrong...The player/enemy gets highlighted when you hover over them...that was not in vanilla so many of the animations are wrong or look weird...its like they ported legion into the vanilla interface. very bizarrebig dealbreakers that, even if they dont affect gameplay, are so noticable that it's hard for me to play if it is in the final product. blizzard is so fucking lazy
>>462319682Yea just like they fixed phasing
>Mages can now open layer portalsBest class.
>>462319443I don't get it
BROS DON'T LISTEN TO THE SHITPOSTERS IT'S GOING TO BE GREAT WE'RE GOING HOME BROS LAYERING IS LITERALLY THE MOST BASED THING EVER ITS NOTHING LIKE SHARDING ITS NOT A RESKINNED BFA THERE WAS LOVE AND SOUL PUT INTO IT BROS IT HAS RIGHT CLICK REPORTING TO TAKE CARE OF BIG MEANIES IN CHAT DONT YOU HAVE A PHONE NO SHOES!!!! *posts paladin one shotting rogue.webm* ITS GONNA BE PLEASE BUY OUR GAME I MEAN BLIZZARD'S GAME I DON'T WANT TO BE LAID OFF COUNTRY ROADS CUT MY LIFE INTO PIECES
>>462319749>You will see ~3000 of the same people across the entire world>No phasing on zone borders into different dimensions with randoms from other serversPlease explain how this is the same as the sharding tech on retail.
>>462319853They never said it wasn't having sharding
LMAO why don't they make a world of Warcraft 2 so the graphics aren't total shit!?
>>462319890I want to report racist fucks and people who post transphobic shit actually, if you say that garbage you deserve a right click ban
>>462319908>server regular logs in>"layer" is full>never see them againit's bad.
>Dude we made it like how it used to be>Posers flock to it>People immediately start begging for the shit that made it easy, but not that terrible late game stuff, just some of the mid game stuff for QoL, we swearHappened to OSRS
>>462320039And me and the boys will right click report you for being a fucking tranny and you'll be perma muted
>>462319838If I'm in a queue I would just join another server. I'd rather not play than play on my own. It's an MMO.
>>462319998modern day blizz cant make good games.
>>462320039kys nigger shill
>>462319841>so many of the animations are wrong or look weird...its like they ported legion into the vanilla interface. very bizarreWhat the fuck are you autists talking about? I havent played WoW since TBC, so I've never seen any of the new animations, but they look exactly the fucking same as Vanilla. I swear private servers fucked peoples heads.
>>462320302Implying you'll last that long being a hateful piece of shit. If you join any WoWG guilds I will be sending reports left and right for things you say in gchat. Keep it in discord you piece of human trash.
All those years of private server hopping,all those years of waiting.Finally it happens.Game looks great, can't wait to play it again.
>>462320389you wont be on your own you retarded cuntyou'll be in your assigned shard for a month and then post p1, you'll be in the wider server once they figure out hosting metrics and weights
>>462320302>>462320462Say that to me on WoW and enjoy your ban ;^)
>>462320462*SNAP* Yep. This one's going in my cringe compilation.
>>462320589>shardingYou're not playing it again, you're playing some shitty knockoff.
>>462320039kys yourself already, tranny
>>462320605An assigned shard that might not have anyone in it
>>462320527Fuck off faggot
>>462320637I'll be on voice with the boys and only talking in party / gchat anyway
>>462320605>and then post p1, you'll be in the wider server once they figure out hosting metrics and weightsWhy would you actaully believe them on that? They already backpedaled on sharding and expanded it once, it surely won't be the last time.
>>462320589Yeah think of the epic PvP moments bruh, imagine fighting someone and they shard swap when they start losing.
>>462320792Then we won't have a problem because I won't see any of your opinions. No one said you couldn't be a retard with like retards. :)
>>462302882>WOW CLASSIC HAS FUCKING MMO CHANNELSYOU FUCKING FOOLS YOU THOUGHT BLIZZARD WOULD GIVE YOU SOMETHING PURE AGAIN?
>>462320039Go away transfag
>>462302882>lvl 13-14 casters doing 50 damage per castWhat did people say about Classic being undertuned?
>>462320979BUT MY LVL 1-5 EXPERIANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
>>462315624t. casterI will enjoying one shotting you.
>>462320718>>462320867woah, watch the negativity ladies, who shit in your bowl lmao.i hate the new wow and sharding as much as the next guy and i'll be the first fucker to quit if they implement layering badly, but let's just wait and see before crying wolf here.
>>462315520Why isn't this post more popular?This is fucking awful. It ruins the fun an MMO could have to begin with.
>>462320527>>462320637>>462320682GTFO-DILATE you weirdo fuckTrans are humanoid abominations and they should be treated like such
>gank someone>"layer hop" to another layer>they never are seen againvanilla, you say
>>462321228because it's the demo at an extreme situation that never happened even in the demo.
>>462307682You have no idea the complexity of doing either of the tasks in your first statement.
>>462321146You can invite a friend to layer hop etc. I just don't have any hope for nu-blizzard
>>462321293You have every right to believe what you do. Just not ingame. ;^)You say that to me on the server and you will be banned. I say that's a fair trade. Try me.
>>462320526you have no idea what you're talking about
>>462321348So this tech has never been implemented but why would they even consider it in the first place? Instances/channels is one of the things that makes Korean grinders garbage.
>>462309159Play a different server. Get your cancerous sharding out
>>462315520Based. That will help tremendously for leveling my priest
>>462321538Ok retard. Point me to said animations.
>>462320927I knew I was a fool to have hope again
>>462312176Well that’s really all it is in real life too
>>462321348But it did happen, I can see it
>>462321389I guarantee I have a better idea than you
>>462315520Lol what kind of faggot plays an MMO ALONE
>>462321740Google retail wow animations you sped
>>462321740watch any video or stream on youtube. I know you cant tell that the animation looks different because you haven't played since BC (i.e more than 10 years). I've been playing the game off and on since 2004 and instantly noticed that the animations (for example, the orc axe swing or the priest smite illumination animation, both from retail/not vanilla-like)
>>462321887the webm is from the closing hour of the demo when everyone online decided to gather in one spot.you would only notice sharding in the demo when you grouped with other people not in your shard generally. This type of sharding in the webm isn't in the current beta at all.
>>462321740He is lying the animations are the same.
>>462306725Ugly boring faggots?>But anon, they aren't shilling, they rip on blizzardThey're shilling, fuck off with that shit
>>462316067You can tell it’s a great feature because the #1 defense for it is that it’s going to be removed lmao
>>462322117Yeah same as retail. There's been multiple animation updates over the years
>>462302882Months away and the retail cucks are already seething beyond belief, it's remarkable.
>>462315706>>462317443>>462321228Thats is the blizzcon demolayering =/= shardingno matter what blizzard does people will complain. What do you want to do wait 3 hours in queue on launch day?
>>462321694Its supposedly going to be used in the initial launch of the game to eliminate queues and to help reduce the amount of players in areas of the map so you wont have 200 players trying to get one quest done. I dont think it should be implemented past the first week personally but thats not looking to be the case.
>>462322335>layering =/= shardingAs far as that video goes, it's the EXACT same thing. Shut up if you don't have any clue what you're talking about.
>>462322042>I know you cant tell that the animation looks different because you haven't played since BCNo dipshit. I played Vanilla so fucking much that I would be able to pick up if anything looked different and nothing is different.
>>462321478Who the fuck cares about you piece of shit, you will play alliance in a goldshire-like server that is the containment for the mentally handicapped tragic person.
>>462321931I guarantee you don’t
>>462322391And that was from November. Seven months ago.
>>462322391>As far as that video goes>A video from last year's hastily put together blizzcon demo>not representative of the current version>Unable to comprehend current updated information
>>462322335>no matter what blizzard does people will complainPeople are right to complain. Noone asked for changes. Majority just want to play vanilla as it was back then.
>>462322372No, Fuck no. It shouldn't be implemented at all. Overcrowded launches are part of the fun and as annoying as they are, queues and overpopulated areas are good indications that a game's population is thriving.
>>462322528And you can't read.>>462322543Idiot who also can't read. "Layering" or whatever the fuck they want to call it does the exact same thing as the sharding we see in that video. Be in one instance, join someone's party, magically teleport to another instance. You are retarded.
>>462322568Yes I really enjoyed the instability, hacks, server crashes, and hour long queues muh true vanilla experience
Can I resub to retail yet, or is it still not fun?
>>462319890I had my doubts...if they dont change this ill just leave
>>462322528That's irrelevant, this feature is identical in the context of the video. You can still hop to different shards or "layers" by having a friend invite you, or probably you can use an addon for it too.
>>462321791Honestly I don't have the heart to bully you further, blizzard tugged at your nostalgia and how much we all just want to go back, you have to accept that the past is the past as much as it hurts to move on, they fucked you
>>462322421ok bud. You asked for said examples and I just pointed to two said examples and you chose to ignore that. why dont you go find said examples on youtube and compare them side by side
>>462322685D-delete this post..
>>462322042>I know you cant tell that the animation looks different because you haven't played since BCWhy would a person that only played vanilla/tbc not be able to notice that the animations from that period aren't there
>>462322685Why not just go ahead and add flying for 1g on lvl 10 and lfr?
>>462322685You mean to imply server infrastucture has evolved since vanilla? Wow man, I'm sure there's no way to do an MMO launch without sharding!
>>462323080Honestly I can't think of a single big MMO that didn't have servers issue on launch.
>>462323150Exactly. But it's a whole lot less issues than back 15 years ago. So don't cripple the entire fucking game with this sharding BS for literally months. No one wants this garbage.
Why are people saying stuff about infinite mana? What's going on now?
>>462323363At least as far as this current test seems to go, the 5 second rule isn't here and you just regen mana while casting.
>>462322690retail will never be fun
>>462319771yea one. good luck finding a group that will let you be the only one
>>4623226908.2 will probably help, but the game is dead at its core.
>>462309147They are way more abilities in EQ
>>462322953>why would someone forget something from 10 years agowow, really makes you think huhtry this retard: as I already directed you here >>462322785, find a video with a priest casting smite on a target from vanilla and from the wow classic beta. compare them side by side and tell me they are exactly the same
>>462302962Sharding, literally. Really exactly the same as it is in most MMOs.
>>462322685>Blizzard 2017 We are gonna re-make the game again from scratch>Blizz 2018 fuck it we just throw 7.3.5 patch with some restrictions because we dont want to waste more money on this shit fuck u
>>462323640And what they should've done from the get go>just release 1.12 client with 0 fucking changes and release a couple months after announcement
>>462322372>Wanting to make your world seem vastly less populated than it actually is.But why, though?
>>462323406Classic is truly dead.fucking sucks.
>>462302962it's like the channel system in maplestory except you cant choose yoru channel and you automatically go to your party leaders channel if you join a party
they are LITERALLY not using vanilla code.this is BFA but with all the non vanilla content cut out. this is why sharding is in, they can't get rid of it.it also means all the vanilla gameplay/bugs are gone.
>>462322785>watch Orc stream>overhead swing, backhand swing, backhand swing with stab>all literally the same exact shitI'm convinced you're just making shit up now.
>>462307186https://youtu.be/SwLjJH8LXfc?t=910how come people who post 'ahahahaha' are always lying or retarded?
>>462323406>>462323363it's clearly not intended. I would be very surprised if it wasn't fixed after this beta.
>>462323998They are using the source data from vanilla with modern infrastructure, blizzcon panel covered this
>>462324054lying Zoomers BTFOBTFOBTFO
>>462324214vanilla had no sharding shit
>>462323998>this is why sharding is in, they can't get rid of it.Retail RP servers have no sharding. Shut up you fucking retard.
>>462324042I already knew this response was coming. you think by saying "bro I saw this and I remember this, ur wrong" is proving a point? I told you to find a comparison side by side from vanilla and the demo. how much of a brainlet are you to not comprehend that>inb4 'you find it' or 'i'm not wasting my time'
Glad blizzard decided to DAB on Alex tier autists with some changes.It'll be fun and truly comfy to game without them, though they'll most likely sub because their own addiction won't let them ignore the Ultimate Fresh
>>462324304RP?so it's turned off cause of RP reasons, all other servers have CRZ shit.
>>462307186you going to respond to >>462324054or are you beaten and are going to slink away to another thread now?
What server do I have to play on to avoid all the wojak posting copypasta spamming redditors?
>>462324054But in your video the mob is literally doing 3 damage
look im not saying vanilla is perfect or anything but im gonna play a female undead warlock and have some fun like the good ol days at least. i hope you bros can get some enjoyment out of it as well
>>462324749please be my big titty goth gf
>>462324576But that video proves him right lol
I forgot how slow classic combat was, holy shoot.
>>462324696that's okay; I'll explain it for you. That is vanilla. The poster was saying "hurr durr the mobs do 3 damage HAHAHAHA", the implication being that the scaling in Classic was not like Vanilla.They do 3 damage in vanilla, too. Especially the caster mobs early on. Do you feel less retarded now?
>>462324959So vanilla, the thing in that video, is a BFA reskin? Are you saying Classic should not be like vanilla or something?
>>462324959it proves that "3 damage" IS vanilla. Did you eat lead paint or something?
>>462324363>THE ELBOW IS 5 PIXELS TO THE RIGHT! NOT BLIZZLIKE!!!!!!!!!I'm going to laugh so fucking hard is Blizz ever comes out and says they didnt touch the animations and blow the fuck out of autists like you. Have sex, retard.
>>462306454Yeah with no spirit your mana regen was basically nonexistent which is why priest/mage and to a lesser extent warlock will be wanding things a lot. Lock gets around it with drain soul and life tap which is one of the big reasons why its one of the easiest classes to level.Even things that seem miniscule like troll racial on a class with no self heal like a warrior help when you'll be running distances between quest objectives. Every little bit of regen counts.But if they do get rid of it for classic I may honestly not roll warrior and instead play druid, there will be way too fucking many warriors if the mid leveling difficulty wall doesn't repel off enough of them
>>462306874LOL>closets in teldrassil that respawn every 5 minutes with 200 people sitting ontop of itLevel in dwarf zones unless you want to kill yourself btw, or tauren if horde
