No Intel 4400s? Wish I knew this sooner.Guess I can't play Legion.Wasted sixty bucks on a pre-order.Thanks Blizzard.
Hmmm, there could be reason for some people to be scared. As I remember when you launch World of Warcraft or any other game it check Video Drivers http://us.version.blizzard.com/update/WoW-video.txt Now I may be wrong and this is just driver checks, but for example I can't play few Blizzard games on my Laptop because of Nvida 310M GPU :(
I saw a lot of people say you can still play Legion with CPUs below the minimum requirements. Frankly, that's a play at your own risk situation. The game MAY run but good luck doing raids or battlegrounds. You might get away with doing quests and MAYBE dungeons. Dalaran could very well kill the computer, too. If you play with specs below the minimum recommendations, you are not supported and if you complain to Blizzard, best they'll tell you is to buy a new computer.My brother's computer is at the bare minimum CPU now but with a Radeon HD 7770 graphic card. He has a hell of a time in HFC and has to run on low settings. I doubt he'll be able to raid at all come Legion with the minimum requirements being upped. I intend to upgrade his computer and mine come November anyway, but I didn't think I'd HAVE to do it. I thought we'd still eek out another year or two for his system. Right now, I'm stuck with the decision of cancelling our accounts once 7.0 hits until we buy Legion or hope he can still run WoW until then.A part of me feels sorry for those who preordered only to find today their computers are below minimum specs so they either have to upgrade their computer or get a refund for Legion. But this is also a case of patience. Perhaps next time, people won't preorder before the system requirements are released. I have no intention of preordering after WoD. I'll quite happily wait. And now with the system requirements out, I'm even happier I'm waiting.
I really don't understand people having issues with PC requirements. When an old bit of hardware stops functioning you replace and upgrade it; that's why I'm going into legion with a GTX 950, because my old 440 died. Stop being cheapskates and just get one or two generation old parts; they don't cost much more than the old outdated stuff does. If you can't afford to drop $200 or so on your PC every two or three years why are you playing a subscription based game?
I was hoping they would fix their terrible engine instead of just bumping the specs.We know it's crappy, they know it's crappy, but nothing is done. Warlords only uses 1 core out of 8 (4 physical + HT) and only 20-30% of my GPU (560) but FPS drops are constant.
Is Blizzard planning anything about 45gb? Future expansion maybe after 2-3 years it will be 80-100gb
looks like ill get 3-4 more yrs out of my comp b4 the next expansion. a gtx 750 ti is what i has and i cant go any better casue of size.
My acer is a beast that pushes itself to it's limits, I bet it can handle Legion
oh no what will i do, this is going to be the end of WoW for me. how could my system even support a 45gb sized program when i only have 500gb space left on my desktop oh how terrible, blizzard how can you do this to me
I've gotta say, these requirements seem like a load of nonsense. I have an 8 year-old Mac that can still run WoW, poorly, as in, it plays on mostly fair to low settings, but it's still playable, even in a raid environment. (Not actually the system I use. I use my own PC build to play, but I still OWN that old Mac). My friend has a cheap $200 laptop that can run the game at 50-60 frames per second on Good settings. Not sure why the devs seem to think you need a beast of a pc to play this game.
