Remember the World of Warcraft legacy server petition? It was a big deal as over 300,000 signed the petition and the Nostalrius team took a trip to Blizzard along with Mark Kern to make the case.
Since the meeting between both parties and Blizzard there has been no news on the status of WoW legacy servers. With BlizzCon just around the corner, the Nostalrius team has posted a quick update and there’s some good news on the technical side from Blizzard.
According to Nostalrius, Blizzard now has “everything in their hands to fulfill the large community request for Legacy servers” and Blizzard has solved “all the previous technical issues they highlighted during the feedback they provided”.
The survey put out by Nostalrius also showed that WoW players would be prepared to pay a subscription for Legacy servers which will be music to Blizzard’s ears.
Nostalrius did end their post with this, “As a consequence, if Blizzard doesn’t make an announcement to honour their own core values, be sure that we will.” Some fighting talk right there.
With BlizzCon kicking off on 4 November it might not be too long until we hear more about the petition and whether Blizzard will back the idea of official Legacy servers.
