World of Warcraft followers are clamouring for legacy servers, and if Blizzard received’t provide them the neighborhood is greater than able to take issues into its personal palms.
The group behind World of Warcraft: Nostalrius has handed its core and participant database over to Elysium, one other World of Warcraft Legacy venture, to be able to hold the dream of old-school vanilla WoW alive.
In an announcement posted on Reddit, one of many Elysium crew mentioned that this switch “means that Nostalrius, exactly as you know it, will be returning”. Good information for individuals who loved the fan-run legacy server.
The context for that is Blizzard’s continued silence on the subject of legacy World of Warcraft servers. Despite the developer’s assertion that World of Warcraft legacy servers would not be announced at BlizzCon 2016 this weekend, many neighborhood members hoped to listen to that some progress was being made.
This faint hope was dashed, and in a put up on the Nostalrius forums, the unique group described the disappointing silence that descended after a gathering between the group and Blizzard. This assembly itself got here after Blizzard shut down Nostalrius for authorized and copyright causes.
Elysium will likely be placed on maintain whereas Nostalrius is introduced again on-line, however I do surprise if Blizzard received’t simply shut all of them down. Or simply, you recognize, launch some official legacy World of Warcraft servers already.
