Blizzard bows to fans and announces World of Warcraft Classic

Blizzard finally relents to years of fan pressure with World of Warcraft Classic

Classic servers are not unknown quantities in World of Warcraft but they have all been unofficial. But shortly after that, Blizzard launched the idea of "pristine worlds", something described similarly to vanilla realms, and then a few days after that the heads of the World of Warcraft team and the heads of Blizzard invited the developers behind the Nostalrius servers to private discussions.

In World of Warcraft's seventh expansion, players will explore the kingdoms of Zandalar and Kul Tiras in an all-out war between the Horde and the Alliance. As such, they seem to already be cautioning players that it will take them sometime to actually activate these servers for public use.

For those wondering, vanilla World of Warcraft refers to World of Warcraft as it was - or roughly as it was - when the game shipped in 2004.

Judge: Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl won't face jail time, will be dishonorably discharged
Bergdahl testified for two hours and described the brutal conditions he endured while held captive by the Taliban. Trump has never been a fan of Bergdahl - in March 2017, he called Bergdahl a "dirty, rotten traitor".

There's always a question of "what's next" in World of Warcraft. Alliance players will be able to access Kul Tiras, while Horde players will be in Zandalar.

In addition, Blizzard announced Seething Shore as the first new battleground being added to World of Warcraft since Mists of Pandaria was released in 2012. Six new "allied races" join the fight, with three playable for each faction (and supposedly more coming after launch), including Void Elves, Lightforced Draenei, Blackiron Dwarves, Highmountain Tauren, Zandalari Trolls, and Nightborn.

Blizzard Entertainment has announced World of Warcraft Classic, a new server option that allows players to revisit the original MMORPG. Battle in groups of three as you race against cunning rival intruders-or enemy players-to collect each island's resources and fuel the war effort.

Few facts on Daylight Saving Time

Battle for Azeroth will have a new level cap of 120 with a purchasable boost of 110. I think of it more of like a game mode.

Blizzard did not give an official release date for Battle for Azeroth, but don't expect it before spring 2018 at the earliest. The upgrade brings with it two new continents, a new level gap, and a bunch of other features (you can find more details on the pack here).
