I’ve been glued to reading the Classic WoW reddit, the official battle.net forums and peeking in here and there on Discord. The hype is real but unfortunately some drama is too. In my opinion it’s not even worth the freak out but for others they must scream and pout and post over and over.
- The naming drama: Imagine not getting the name you want and having a meltdown. I logged in two hours late and didn’t get any of my HunterXHunter names I coveted. Good for the people who scored them. I just kept trying and trying and I did score a total favorite character I have so overall I was happy. The lesson: you can’t always get what you want. Don’t let it lead to your misery.
- The LFG addons drama: Rumors of an LFG addon been added to Classic. I agree it sucks and I think it ruins what made Classic special, the social aspect. But what isn’t great is all the speculation. When you have all these scenarios you freak up a frenzy online. And after the drama a Blizzard blue post announced this evening they wouldn’t let any LFG addons in Classic. The lesson: Have some faith in the devs. I didn’t think for a moment it would come to fruition and it didn’t and I saved my sanity in the process.
- The mafia drama: There are a shitpost a plenty today on reddit and some people are REALLY fueling the fire. Apparently one guild is leaving a server and wants to go to a new certain server and something about an add on that can make it like a mafia environment???? I’m assuming trade like cartels on mats??? Honestly I couldn’t even keep up and the more the story goes on the more convoluted it gets. What I did notice is how certain Discord people constantly stoke the fire when it’s just about burnt out. I’m an old person now and I can’t spot that shifty behavior in a nano second. They get off on riling you up. Don’t give them the satisfaction. The lesson: Be weary of the little shits online gossiping, bad mouthing and stirring up controversy. They may act like your cyber buddy but will usually throw you under the bus when you aren’t looking.
- The server drama: How dare they make Westfall an Eastern server! Blamoo, um Blamaux, um how the hell you spell it..Blaumeux. Now how to pronounce it??? Old Blanchy is where all the old players should go to drool together! Whitemane is all 4Chan and a shit show. Herod thinks they are so awesome..ugh! Grobbulus thinks they are the most mature and will skyrocket in server size once release day comes. And then Grobbulus and Bloodsail Buccaneers will have the best retention because “mature RP” players. STREAMERS! HIDE YOUR CHILDREN… it’s Faerlina. Fairbanks is where everyone went once Whitemane was full. The lesson: Don’t believe it all. There is so much propaganda from nerds on some servers bashing others. It’s really become a gang flex thing. Play where you want on what time zone works best for you. It will be awesome no matter what you choose.
Here’s hoping your upcoming guild life in Classic WoW is drama free! Cheers! Zug Zug!
