I was never a big WoW Fan, but i played it back in 2005 for a year or so. I buyed BC, when it was released and just got to level 60 a week before and played it a little, but not to level 70 and quitted. I don't remember why exactly, 'twas time to move on i think.
As a Roleplayer i think my best time was in UO on a RP Shard, but i remember i had fun with some RPers in WoW and we were a cool guild called the children of hyjal.
I have no clue what is the different between WoW and WoW classic in detail, but picked it up and played it yesterday for the first 6 levels.
Man i couldn't imagine what sort of nostalgia and dejavu i had.
The sounds, the graphics, the look and feel. I really didnt expect that.
After 10 minutes i first quitted, but then after an hour or so i said common, try again and then i was suddenly a little bit hooked.
Rare whatever you do with SoT, make sure when i retire, ok that's a little bit more than 15 years, but not very much :-) you have Sea of Thieves classic servers.
I'd say pre Hungering Deep :D
Jk... When i'm able to play the Tall Tales again in 15 years, when i will dig up a chest and get a commendation sound or when i come close to an island, hear someone whistling Becalmed with a drum only, when i hear "we shall sail together" in the tavern, a Meg appearing, the Kraken coming, someone say "Banana?" when offering one ingame, when i grab the first chest of Grog and jump "heeyyy" :D or hear the chest of sorrow crying...
Oh my... this will be so much more nostalgia and dejavu, i think i will maybe have some wet eyes :D
Lets hope we are here in 15 years from now on and have that experience ^10
Do it Rare, just do it and make it happen.
