Blizzard to meet Kern and Nostalrius over World of Warcraft Vanilla servers

Blizzard to meet Kern and Nostalrius over World of Warcraft Vanilla servers

The big news in World of Warcraft for the past couple of week was the closure of the WoW vanilla server Nostalrius. This prompted the large petition which was sent to Blizzard earlier this week by ex-Blizzard dev Mark Kern.

Today there has finally been some movement and Blizzard has now agreed to meet with both the Nostalrius team and Mark Kern to find a solution. A meeting will take place when everyone’s schedules align according to a message sent over to us by Mark Kern.

Blizzard is aiming for their “pristine server” model but perhaps meeting with the Nostalrius team will convince them to go a step further and bring a full vanilla server online.

It’s good news and proves that petitions can sometimes work. Blizzard has paid attention and listened to the 250k players who signed the petition which is great to see.
