World of Warcraft: Classic launched one year ago today, August 27, 2019. This was Blizzard's first attempt at restoring an archival version of Warcraft, allowing players to reconnect with their friends from decades past and relive their first steps in Azeroth. The launch of WoW Classic was a success by all industry metrics, doubling WoW's active users from summer 2019.
Once our leveling was done on our side, the Horde and the Alliance found themselves in the 1st wild PvP zone very famous at the time of Vanilla: The Strangleronce Valley!
The bigger players could be happy to have gotten a head start on leveling so that they could camp out all the new little players who just wanted to give their quest and move on to the next one : Big mistake! If the camp was owned by the opposing faction: you had to come back later to avoid being camped!
Then comes a phase that everyone has both good and bad memories of: Près bis Farm !
These famous items that you had to have before starting your raids in order to be optimized to down bosses very quickly! Every healer will remember the hours spent in BRD to get their famous trinket heal : Second Wind
Or the mage in Stratholme who had to beat a team-mate to win the Rand to get the Crimson Felt Hat!
How time flies! WoW Classic launched one year ago today.
On behalf of the everyone at Blizzard, thank you for joining us on this amazing journey back in time that somehow led to the creation of so many wonderful new things. It has been awesome to see the WoW Classic community forge many new bonds and find many new ways to enjoy this game we love.
Along with everyone on the engineering, production, QA, support, and publishing teams, I can’t wait to see what the future holds in store for WoW Classic. We hope we get to celebrate this day with you for many more years!
I want to personally thank all of you for your passion and excitement. Working on this game has been the highlight of my career in software development, and your energy and support are a big part of that.
:heart: you all
( even the cranky ones. :slight_smile: )
I’m also going to hop on the WoW Classic birthday hype train and give a heart-felt THANK YOU to all of our players for making WoW Classic such an incredible project to be a part of.
