“World of Warcraft Classic” is expected to have players return to the simpler yet more difficult time of the game’s vanilla version. While this is exciting news to those wanting to reminisce about the good old days, newer players might be repelled from playing it, Screen Rant reported.

The main reason for this is due to the developers opting to keep some of the bugs of the vanilla version into “World of Warcraft Classic.” Indeed, the current update by community manager Kaivax already highlighted this fact, as well as some of the concern that the community has in testing the game.

But even though this is the case, there will still be a plethora of players that would undeniably be interested in playing “World of Warcraft Classic.” It can be recalled that prior to its development, the game’s vanilla version was first hosted by a group of “WoW” enthusiasts who oversaw the needs of the community.

Unfortunately, Blizzard elected to shut this server down, which resulted in the waves of backlash from thousands of players. At that time, the community of this niche group of “WoW” players has grown to a considerable number that the noise they generated got the company’s attention. A movement was launched thereafter to have Blizzard remedy the situation, with a petition that received over 280,000 signatures. Thus, the company decided to indulge the fan base and developed “World of Warcraft Classic” – clunky mechanics and all.

Among the things that gamers should keep in mind when playing the rekindling is that they should be cooperative. As “World of Warcraft Classic” doesn’t have a Dungeon Finder, those wanting to be part of a raid needs to socialize more to find a reliable group, Tom’s Guide reported. The level cap will also be limited to 60, as opposed to the current version of 120. As for its release date, Blizzard has yet to announce anything other than saying that it will come out sometime around the summer of 2019.
