World of Warcraft: Blizzard “Wants” Legacy Servers, Nostalrius Team Talks Challenges

It’s not easy getting legacy WoW servers going.

When Nostalrius, the legacy servers for Vanilla World of Warcraft that was actively managed and handled by a team of fans, had shut down in April it triggered a wave of support that Blizzard hadn’t seen before. Having met with senior executives of Blizzard, the Nostalrius team revealed that the company is open to legacy servers.

“These guys WANT to have legacy WOW servers, that is for sure. They DO have the source code for Vanilla WOW“.

It’s not easy as it sounds though. Plenty of other information – like models, data, maps – is still required and they may need to be recreated. “Not all of this information was under a version control system. In the end, whichever of these parts were lost at any point, they will have to be recreated: this is likely to take a lot of resources through a long development process.” This isn’t including the polish that Blizzard wants to bring to the end product.

Regardless, the meeting was a strong step forward. “To sum up: the good surprise of the meeting was the level of engagement of all these Blizzard people toward making legacy servers a reality. The downside is the technical difficulty it will take to reach our objective. Blizzard is now well aware of the amount of players willing to play legacy servers, something which wasn’t the case until Nostalrius shutdown.”

So while it not may happen tomorrow, legacy server fans can at least take heart that some efforts are being made.

    Horrible decision in my opinion if they do open “Legacy” servers. All these people are looking through “nostalgia” glasses. Clearly no one remembers waiting for hours to find groups in town and then having to run forever just to reach the dungeon/raid.
