Seems like they got tired of all the begging and finally are developing a classic server that includes no expansions and resets the world to the way it used to be. I might be drawn back to be a casual player for that.[/url]

I suspect there will be a lot of hype for it but then it may eventually devolve into complaints on the amount of true grind we had to do to make it back then.

At least they won't have the crippling lag we had back then after launch. Remember trying to klomp in Durotar and having lag spikes so long that you were killed by a scorpion before you could recover? Or taking 5 minutes to retrieve mail? They used to have to re-set the servers every day to clear the lag.

I doubt they will have the same xp rate as in classic. Not too many can tolerate that anymore. I was recently messing around on one of the EQ1 progression servers, which has an xp rate closer to how it was back in 1999, and quickly realized that I just don't have the time for that now - 2 days of several hours each day just to solo from lvl 6 to lvl 7. If I recall, I don't think I hit max level in classic WoW for about 9 months (but we did a lot of guild events that didn't net much xp, of course, and it was never about fast leveling).

i believe that it was that xp rate in EQ1 that got me to stop playing the game extremely early on. Coming from UO, where we had skill gain rather than standard experience to level, it was a bit of a culture shock to me.

The actual questing was quite boring after the initial cool of the world waned off, but I actually have fond memories of leveling in classic wow. Most of my time I spent PvPing in the contested areas and when I got bored of an area, I'd move to the next. I don't remember if I ever really managed to level a character to 60 though.

I think it will have a healthy population. I've played private servers off and on and there is a pretty big demand for this game mode. The XP rate feels spot on.

Tried going back to private servers for Dark Age of Camelot aaaaaaaaaand noped right out due to how cumbersome leveling and xp rates were. actually not quite true, i got a gobo spiritmaster to level 37 or something before i hit the wall. oh the memories it brought back.
