    edit: watching my wife play. Skull Rock is a fucking graveyard. I've never seen so many skeletons.

    Yeah, I wouldn't mind playing this but checked it a couple of times today between the queue and the ddos I'll let the hype die and see if it's still worth a look.

    Its the same case with any semi-hyped thing. First day is the worst, figured it would be really bad this weekend cause dumb time to launch and they have had server issues prior to this. More and more glad I didnt dedicate my day to that.

    I cant believe Blizzard does not take advantage of this like Sony and now Daybreak are doing with progression servers(its their most populated servers). It just boggles the mind. They could get an extra 3-5 mill subs easy with some prog type servers going for the old time nostalgia players. The old battlegrounds, MC, the AV, the world PvP, the PvP raids on cities... fuck I miss that shit.

    AV battles that lasted hours were the greatest.

    AV when it was full of NPCs that is

    Yep, nothing like it before or since.

    I remember my shaman with The Unstoppable force and whirlwind..... Man those were the days.

    Do these emu servers even have battlegrounds? I remember playing on one a few years ago and that one didnt.

    i gave up in the barrens once I hit the quillboar quests down at camp t. i ran through all the spawn locations and i saw 1 quillboar, with every spawn being camped by a group.
    i could only slog through the masses around every quest objective for so long. game just wasn't designed for that many people. and grinding to 60 had little appeal for a server that might not last very long.


    would 100% play on a blizzard server though.

    edit: i think i broke even in queue time vs. time played in game.

    I think I still have an old 1-60 guide, that took you step by step what quests to do in what order, later to be replaced by quest helper and shit, but this guide would save literal week from leveling if not more.

    [Leveling] Jame's Horde Leveling Guide - Old Versions

    I think he had a Alliance one too later. He was like world champ in leveling back in the day, I think like 4 days 16 hours or some shit if I remember right.

    I hear ya.

    New pvp server tomorrow at 11:00 central. Maybe it won't have a 10-20k queue?

    For Twink bg or you mean 60. Like i said i was playing to relive the glory days of taking a couple ashkandi warriors with a healer into bgs and spawn camping.


    My like plus 75 shadow power aff lock and twink rogue were pretty crazy for 19 bracket.

    I immediately got on the new server, managed to get past the hoards in the newbie zone, was about to ding 7 when I thought to myself "I really don't have time for this shit". Logged off

    Sigh
