Legion the gated xpac is how I see it trying to make a xpac last longer by gating every little thing is not the way to go and people suss out what they are doing pretty quick.

I'm hoping Battle for Azeroth takes us somewhat back towards a vanilla experience.

I have 12 level 110's all at around ilevel 930 I'm not in a guild and have not raided and only done 5mans for my class campaigns even those were  just about tolerable in lfg

community has really gone down the shitter even in a guild everybody does their own thing jumping into lfg and lfr without even asking guildies if they want to do something.

Bit off topic but does anybody from HoJ vanilla days remember doing Naxx and we had a guy called something like Whitemagecid who had some kind of condition like ADHD who would get very excited and scream at the top of his lungs and pull everything in a room or am I miss remembering?

Thought I had remembered correctly probably one of the funniest times in the game for me.

/wave

Clearing out the old files on the PC and found loads of old WoW screenshots and even an interview I did with Ashaar.

Felt like reminiscing, so thought I'd say hi! :D

Hi Kurtt, hope things are good with you.

You'll be diving back in for classic right?

Hi team! I was also just reminiscing about the old 2006 Molten Core days and wondering if I wanted to bother getting back into wow in BFA or not... Other than when i was at uni in 2007-2010 i've played at least a little bit of solo content every year since then, but pretty much gave up on it all last year. It's never been quite the same as early HoJ days and I'm not sure WoW classic is going to do the job, sadly.

Anyone from original HoJ/Synch still playing WoW?

Kurtt! Good to see you still exist :) What's this interview? I have no memory of that at all.

Just spent some time watching through some truly awful videos of our old raids though, and the Karnival is still brilliant :)
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWiGiHKNVB8e9ubyOzdguSw - some memorable old voices on TS in those vids.

While i'm feeling nostalgic, and hopeful that some of the old crowd will read this, a truly big heartfelt thanks to all those people from back in the day for making some really happy memories! (don't worry, i'm not dying or anything, just having a moment :) )

Hi Ash only really me(BD) and Caradir(Bigcogg) seem to frequent these forums anymore don't even see Jon's name on the site though he could be on at 3am or something.

I still play retail but its not the same hardly anybody from 2005/6 playing does not feel like the same guild anymore the newer people are probably good people and it may be me getting older but I find I cant be arsed with them lol.


I will be playing classic but if there's nobody else i know on i probably wont last long and i know it will not be the same anyway but its worth a try.

ps
Yeah i was looking at the old videos you did on youtube recently you dont get fun like that anymore.

Well I got in to the server stress test for classic as it only lasts for two hours it may be over before I get in lol.


edit: seems its at 11am today so probably 2 hrs of trying to tag a mob with a 2 minute respawn timer or something.

2 minute respawn?

I remember queueing for Hogger far longer :)
"Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create money, and with the flick of the pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take away from them the power to create money and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear and they ought to disappear, for this would be a happier and better world to live in. But, if you wish to remain the slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create money." Josiah Stamp (Governor Bank of England 1928-41)
