I feel like such a geezer now. Thanks for reminding me the original launch date
/sigh, oh WoD... How amazing you could have been... I still remember how excited I was when that expansion was announced. And I can't even remember what the old Darkmoon Faire was like! I've been playing since '06 so I'm sure I experienced the old version, but I honestly can't remember it not being an island.Love these articles!
That Warlords feature highlight reminds me how excited I was for WoD. The concept and features were great just so poorly implemented.
I will miss Legion soo much ;( ! Yea Titanforged and Legendaries were bad xD but in the end, almost every aspect of the Legion was great 10/10 without a doubt and I will miss the most artifact weapons and abilities yea they will add some in next expansion as talent, but we must say good bay to Legion (well not yet until next year hehe).
I was still playing DAoC and Asheron's Call at WoW launch. My best friend started playing when the game went live and asked me if I wanted to play too. I was really put off by the cartoon like avatars and didnt think I would enjoy it at all. Flash forward to 2017 - Im here and I still cant get enough.
yeah i remember having to look up where DMF was going to be at. It was NOTHING like it is now. Just a few measly stalls. Most important thing being to turn in DMF Decks for rep and for trinkets because you could only do that there once a month.
oh man. "Blizzards' answer to player housing".... Garrisons fell so short of even touching on this. "Fully customizable", in my opinion, doesn't mean "choose from 5ish building options in a single building style regardless of race". Nothing fit my bloodelves better than a bone and hide tent in a frozen wasteland /sarcasm. I still really want a feature like having a home. Class halls are nice and all, and they avoid the issue of being isolated in one place as now you can at least see your class mates, but honestly. How hard could it be just to pull a bunch of houses from the game, put them on a little instance island and let the player decide where to put a bed and what color shield to put on a wall? Most of these art assets are readily available.
These posts remind me of a documentary we have here, where they explained events that happened "on this day, 20 years ago" etc.
You had to remind us of WoD...
Wow! been playing for 13 years! Time flies when you are having fun.... My best experience was WoLK for sure - when rogues were kings of dps thanks to arpen stacking.Thanks to Blizz for continually changing, and sometimes improving, the games experience; they must have done something right to keep us playing for 13 years.
2004 is best year in gaming history
