There is not a person in the world who can call himself a gamer and not know about World of Warcraft. Being the latest installment of one of the highest-grossing gaming franchises ever, it is a game you’ve heard of from a friend, a relative, or an acquaintance even if you aren’t into gaming one bit. The game came out way back in 2004, on the 10th anniversary of the first Warcraft in the series, and the rest is history. With hundreds of millions of accounts and with more than 10 million concurrent players at its peak, World of Warcraft quickly turned from being a video game to becoming a lifestyle.
From common folk to professional gamers and streamers, people gained fame through this MMORPG and because known worldwide for various reasons. Some were so good at the game that others looked up to their skill level. Others had a mishap or two during guild raids (looking at you, Leeroy Jenkins). Whatever the case may be, the game is more than fifteen years old and is still going as strong as ever, with no sign of stopping any time soon. Not long ago, a remastered version of the original World of Warcraft expansion came out, inviting many of the old school players to come back and try to, once again, experience how it was entering this vast universe for the first time. They were even pausing JerkDolls porn games to go back to their favorite server, create a character, and immerse themselves once more.
The remaster, however, didn’t come out just like that. A large portion of World of Warcraft’s player base has been looking for ways to go back to the older expansions. Some of them even resorted to playing private servers that Blizzard promptly shut down. So, it should come as no surprise that World of Warcraft Classic was an instant hit. But, once the hype died down, one question resurfaced once again. And that is whether vanilla WoW was actually better than newer expansions, or if everything was just that nostalgic feeling. After all, the majority of older gamers grew up playing WoW’s initial expansions, explored the world for the first time with their friends, and created memories that will last them a lifetime. That’s not something you can recreate, no matter how hard you tried. On the other hand, you can give people back glimpses of that by at least providing them with the tools they used.
That’s exactly what happened with the Classic. Naturally, just like with adult sex games on JerkDolls, tastes differ and there’s something for everyone. Older expansions had that tryhard feel to them and the game wasn’t dumbed down and simplified for everyone. You had to play and get better in order to progress. But, there were many different flaws that were slowly corrected over the course of time. Those flaws you don’t even register nowadays, but they would surely poke your eyes out.
