Was the scale of the World of Warcraft world an extraordinary feat for its time?
>>
>>323303293
Everquest was larger.
>>
>>323303293
>for its time
How many games have been released since then which are larger than it?

I can't imagine there are many.
>>
>>323303293
This is depressing.
>>
The lack of loading screens was more extraordinary than the size.
>>
How come they never ended up sharing some of the polys from the shoulders into the other armor so it looks less like body paint?
>>
>>323304523
There are load screens into lots of places like deeprun tram and UBRS iirc.
>>
>>323304686
Because it takes effort and unfortunately the mass just looks over it.
>>
The lack of loading screens between areas was a big deal.
>>
>>323303293

Pretty sure Star Wars Galaxies was bigger.
>>
the world is seamless and back then that got it a lot of praise.

to put it into perspective i believe wow is still the only mmo that has been capable of doing that.

>>323304782
Loading screen in-between zones, not instances.
>>
>>323305470
Missed your chance, then.
>>
The whole "no loading screens" thing was very impressive at the time
>>
>>323305592
didn't the boat and zeppelin rides have load screens to?
>>
>>323305746
Between continents, yeah.

But once you were on a continent, that was it. No loading screens. You can go from Silithus to Winterspring without encountering one loading screen.

Is it me or is Alliance always more buttblasted over people who invade their capital cities compared to Horde?

>invaded Stormwind, slaying King Varian and Greymane with success
>Whole Alliance immediately storms into all Horde capitals in full numbers

Seems like they actually care about their faction, unlike the Horde.

>>323305470
You can try Nostalrius, It's not an accurate representation of vanilla wow but it's the best there ever was, not sure how it is nowadays but it had 7-8k people online at peak hours and lots of cool people, and for god's sake don't even bother with retail.

I joined during Cataclysm, but I play every now and then on a WotLK private server. You should give it a shot, babycakes

That game was always garbage, I'll never get nostalgiafags. It was literally Everquest for Normies when it came out and now it's a Facebook minigame simulator.

Currently playing on the Kronos vanilla like server.

>tfw it's AV weekend

No it's not the same, it's the best scripted server out but the pop is too low to be considered wow-like. You could try nost but the pop there is far too big and the scripting is sub-par. ( bugged quests, NPC's not using skills like they should, over buffing mobs in instances to make up for it etc )
>>
>>323306291
Instead of just staying in the garrison, you could just choose to explore more?
>>
>>323306471
REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
>>
>>323306291
And Everquest was Ultima Online for fat greasy autistic nerds that only have the time to commit but not the skill, your point?
>>
>>323306194
dont listen to this >>323306314 nost shill
while I only started during late TBC I tried numerous vanilla servers
yes it is an awesome experience but only because I already had a ground to base it on and wasnt completely new to WoW
while servers like Emerald Dream (RIP) were buggy and stuff you still got the core experience of vanilla WoW and it was nice
nost was the same during the first weeks however now that the server has 10k pop, gold farming chinese and "DINDUNUFFIN" niggers camping lvl 20 contested zones with groups of 10+ lvl60s the game is shit for somebody who never played WoW
the magic is gone unless you find a small, new release server that caps at ~4k players

You could tell the personality of the player based on what faction they picked.

>Alliance: weak, beta PvE cucks
>Horde: cool alpha PvP jocks

You WoW nostalgiafags are no worse than FFXI nostalgiafags.

>>323307337
This is true but mostly because of paladin blessings in vanilla, no idea how it is nowadays, i assume most arena players rerolled human after that free trinket racial

Playing wotlk with modified controls (fps sheme) and having a blast, best mmo there is nothing comes close in scale and content and skill variety + difficulty

Hey, guys do you remember that guild? Yeah THAT guild. The one that always had someone online to talk to. The one that you'd look forward to hanging out with after school. The guild that can never be re-created.

Are you ready for this?

>you will never talk to them again
>you will never raid/pvp with your guild again
>you will never know if they're doing okay, half of them could be homeless, dead, or subscribed again on another character
>you will never pull all nighters hanging out with people on a computer game that felt more like family than anyone else
>It's gone...

>>323309868
>It's gone.
Indeed it is. All I have are good memories. Time to move on with your life.
>>
>>323307337
I shifted between both sides frequently from Classic to MoP. What I noticed over the years was that the majority of Horde players were better than the majority of Alliance players, but the top tier Alliance players were a lot better than the Horde's top players. Alliance players usually had much more patience while the Horde players had much more tenacity. The Horde usually had a much bigger population though, so they had more top players available to them.
>>
>>323309868
No, that sounds made up.
>>
>>323309868
i never had THAT guild

I was always a massive guild hopper
