World of Warcraft Classic review: Second time lucky

World of Warcraft Classic review: Second time lucky

How on earth are you supposed to review something like World of Warcraft Classic? Not only are MMOs hard to review in the first place given their emphasis on community, but WoW Classic is already a known quantity. We already played this game 15 years ago - or, more specifically, 13 years ago as WoW Classic is based on patch 1.2 for vanilla WoW, which didn’t ship until 2006. Regardless of the specific moment in time WoW Classic captures, many of us have played this before, and we all likely have an opinion on how good this game is.

Well, I’m addicted to World of Warcraft again

Well, I’m addicted to World of Warcraft again

A week ago today, World of Warcraft Classic launched. During this past week, I’ve been playing it pretty much whenever possible, and it certainly doesn’t seem like I’m alone there. Shortly after WoW Classic launched, it had over one million viewers on Twitch, and even now as I write this, it’s sitting at a very respectable 244,000 viewers - still enough to make it the most-watched game on Twitch by a good margin. Then, of course, we have the well-documented and oft-maligned queue times, which even after a week can still last five or six hours on popular servers. In short: A lot of people want to play WoW Classic at the moment, and I’m definitely one of them.

How to remotely queue for WoW Classic while you work

We're now a couple of days out from the launch of World of Warcraft Classic, and unfortunately, the insanely long queue times don't seem to be getting any better.

World of Warcraft Classic has been a very wholesome experience so far

World of Warcraft Classic has been widely available for a little under a day now, and for many people, a lot of that time has been spent contending with mind-numbingly long queue times. Right off the bat, the WoW Classic experience emulates that of 2004 WoW pretty well. Obviously, long queue times can be nostalgic, but once you actually get into the game, you'll find something that's missing from a lot of games these days: A real feeling of community.

World of Warcraft Classic gets three new realms as servers choke

World of Warcraft Classic gets three new realms as servers choke

It's been a pretty intense initial 24 hours for World of Warcraft Classic. A ton of players have been looking to log into the game and relive WoW as it existed in 2004, and because of that, the servers are having a difficult time keeping up. On many realms, players have been greeted by hours-long queues when they attempt to log in, and while that emulates the experience of launch-day World of Warcraft pretty darn well, it isn't exactly ideal.

Here’s how to play World of Warcraft Classic

Today is a big day for World of Warcraft fans, as Blizzard is launching WoW Classic. WoW Classic is Blizzard's official attempt at (and answer to) vanilla servers that have proven to be popular with WoW fans. With it, fans will be able to play World of Warcraft as it more or less existed shortly after it released in 2004, with no expansions and none of the major modern improvements.
