Blizzard themselves have been overwhelmed with the success of Classic WoW

If you never played Vanilla World of Warcraft and joined the game during one of the later expansions, you may feel disconnected from the current hype around Classic WoW. Retail WoW and Classic WoW are two very different games, both in the look and feel, and the gameplay mechanics. If you’re enjoying Battle for Azeroth, you may be wondering whether you’d even enjoy Classic WoW.

For a number of us – though certainly not all of us – WoW Classic is close to peak World of Warcraft. There will always be fans of every iteration of World of Warcraft, but it certainly seems like a large number of people say that WoW was at its best either during vanilla or The Burning Crusade, World of Warcraft’s first expansion.

Blizzard themselves have been overwhelmed with the success of Classic WoW. Originally, Blizzard expected around 189,000 players in the US across 21 realms. There are currently over 50 realms on the US servers. WoW Classic is still ranking number 1 on Twitch and has been dominating the streams since launch day. World of Warcraft used to have god-like levels of subscribers and Blizzard reaped the rewards of this with astronomical revenue. Since then, all MMO developers have been trying to create a game that can reach WoW status, and many have come close. Now it seems that Blizzard may have done it themselves with WoW Classic.

This game is also surprisingly challenging – more challenging than I remember it being. As I’ve been playing, I’ve often needed to group up with other players to complete quests simply because I can’t complete them on my own. That isn’t a complaint, of course; this is an MMO, the entire point of it is playing with other people. I appreciate how WoW Classic makes the community around you necessary for more than just dungeons and raids.

Obviously, since this is a game from 2004, there are some blemishes. The graphics aren’t that great, and getting from one place to another before you collect enough gold to buy a mount can take a very long time. There’s a lot of waiting in WoW Classic, whether we’re talking about travel times or waiting for unique enemies to respawn, but for me, that’s part of the charm.
