Kill an old god as a playable fox or cyborg gnome in World Of Warcraft’s next update

World Of Warcraft Classic has gotten a lot of love lately. So much so that it's become quite easy to miss the monstrosity of a game that is World Of Warcraft: Battle For Azeroth lurking just around the corner. But like the old gods it loves so much, contemporary Warcraft is plotting, scheming, and preparing to unleash another calamity upon the fantasy denizens of Azeroth.…

WoW Classic to add World Bosses, Dire Maul and honourable combat this year

World Of Warcraft Classic is here to stay. Good job, everyone. We've successfully avoided dealing with 2019 by hiding inside a 15-year-old MMORPG. But Warcraft didn't get those terrible Mr T commercials by staying put, and even its retro throwback must evolve or perish. With that in mind, Blizzard are ready to roll out the next phase of Classic's rebirth. Phase 2 of Classic is…

World Of Warcraft Classic lagged up by DDoS attacks this weekend

Continuing to replicate the vintage WoW experience, following over-full servers, World Of Warcraft Classic has now been slammed by blaggards launching denial-of-service attacks. European and American servers were hit by distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks on Saturday, Blizzard said, resulting in players being disconnected or having trouble connecting in the first place, high latency, and other frustrating issues. Just like the old days! Europe's attacks ended…

World Of Warcraft Classic will soon offer free transfers to quieter realms

It's with great shame that I admit I've fallen down a bit of a World Of Warcraft Classic hole. It's a massive pain in the arse, though - even at the best of times, it's rubbish to be fighting fellow adventurers for the last handful of XP in each clearing, sharing murderous glares as we race to get the first stab in on a gnoll.…

Lone WoW Classic player beats pro teams to hit level 60 first

Who really has the time to do this? It took me so long to get to World Of Warcraft's mythical 60 level cap that three expansions had passed and I was 20 levels behind the new bar. Didn't even touch a raid until 2 years back, and by then all the folks I started with had quit the game and started real, adult lives. Typical.…

WoW Classic queues are long enough that players are even queuing in-game for quests

The launch of World Of Warcraft Classic this week was faithful enough to the vintage WoW experience that players have again found themselves waiting in digiqueues to join certain servers, some waiting for hours. Some players have even started queueing in-game for their chance to kill the monsters everyone now needs to whack for low-level quests. So how come Blizzard haven't brought more servers online…

World Of Warcraft Classic is now live, jumping back to 2006

An old nemesis has risen in World Of Warcraft to claim his former throne as the scourge of Elwynn Forest. You mission, if you dare accept, is simple: kill Hogger. Blizzard's MMORPG jumped back 13 years last night with the launch of World Of Warcraft Classic, an official vintage version undoing over years of changes, overhauls, and expansions. If you miss the days when WoW…

Ye olde World Of Warcraft devs reminisce while playing WoW Classic

Next week we're gonna party up like it's 2006 with the launch of World Of Warcraft Classic. The official vintage version of Blizzard's MMORPG (as opposed to the unofficial pirate servers which for years have sustained interest in vintage WoW) will roll the game back to shortly before the launch of its first expansion, inviting old people to jack in and briefly pretend they haven't…

Puncraft: Reserve your WoW Classic puns ahead of launch

Hello! Gera here. I have been given the keys to RPS HQ while Alice takes her usual evening sabbatical into the Rock Paper Sensory Deprivation tank where she goes to ruminate on the day's news. In the meantime I am using my newfound power like anybody would, which is by making many tiny yet still perceptible changes to the RPS homepage. Hey, nice vertical border.…

World Of Warcraft Classic’s “not bug” list is delightful

World Of Warcraft Classic will be throwing players back to the halcyon days of 2004 come August, reverting the MMO back to its original state. But it seems that some have been looking back through rose-coloured glasses, or at least gotten so used to the 15 years of quality of life improvements that they’re confused by some of the game’s original details. As such, Blizzard…

World Of Warcraft Classic launches on August 27th

Blizzard have finally announced a release date for World Of Warcraft Classic, the official back-to-basics version of the game. While the genre-defining MMORPG first launched in 2004, Classic will be based on version 1.12.0, aka "Drums Of War", released in August of 2006, although polished up with a few modern conveniences. A series of invitational stress tests have been announced, starting next week on May…

World Of Warcraft Classic to space ‘new’ content out more

Blizzard have stretched out their plans for World Of Warcraft Classic, now intending to roll out new raids and dungeons and other content updates for the vintage version of their MMORPG over six phases instead of four. They want it to better reflect the pace of original content updates, where additions slowly prepared players for the next to come rather than loads blasting out at…

World Of Warcraft Classic launches free for all WoW subscribers in summer 2019

While I bounced off it back in the day, the original incarnation of World Of Warcraft remains beloved by many. Some are even nostalgic for the days of chunky character models and grinding werewolves for a pittance of gold. That, and Barrens chat, although anyone hungry for that is just weird. Today, Blizzard announced that their retro MMO throwback - World Of Warcraft Classic -…

World of Warcraft Classic is progressing/regressing nicely

Blizzard has been working on launching World of Warcraft servers that just run a classic version of the game, back before all of the updates were added to the world... of Warcraft... over the years. It's an ambitious choice because it's not just about re-launching some early version of the game; it's about perfecting and updating a very specific slice of the game so that…

World of Warcraft going vanilla with Classic servers

World of Warcraft is getting a new expansion, Blizzard announced today, but also an anti-expansion. For people who want World of Warcraft as it was way back when, before expansions came along with all their bells and whistles, Blizzard will finally launch official 'Classic' servers. WoW fans have run bootleg vanilla servers for years, and Blizzard's lawyers shutting these down without offering an alternative has…
