WoW goes back in time!

WoW is well known to gamers all around the world.
On November 23rd, 2004, Blizzard has released the initial version
of WoW called “Vanilla”. The ingame world then consisted only of
Kalimdor and Eastern Kingdoms. That was almost 15 years ago…

Now the game world of World of Warcraft is way larger and more “islands” came to life, like Pandaria, The Broken Islands, Maelstrom, Kul Tiras, Zandalar – to name the larger zones.

But when I started playing WoW in 2005, I also knew the “old” world although Burning Crusade was already in the pipe and got released in January, 2007. So while playing WoW for a good 13 years now, I must say that the new worlds and the game mechanics have improved, indeed. Though the Classic times had their challenge as well.

As the fans more and more asked for the good ol’ times to return (the caves of time were only a minor replacement) Blizzard now announced to bring back the REAL thing on August 27th, 2019.

As of yesterday, Blizzard now accepts Opt-in for the Test Realm of WoW Classic. And if you’re lucky enough, you might be able to register a classic character from May 22nd, 2019 when Blizzard plans the first Stress Test.

This is the planned release schedule for the real thing:

Official Server Opening times

August 26th August 27th August 27th August 27th August 27th August 26th
15:00 00:00 06:00 07:00 08:00 22:00
* To align with other regions, the Americas will launch slightly ahead of August 27th local time.

And this is the schedule for the three Stress Test tiers that may be subject to change.

  • Stress Test 1: Wed May 22–Thurs May 23
  • Stress Test 2: Wed Jun 19– Thurs Jun 20
  • Stress Test 3: Thurs Jul 18– Fri July 19

To claim your desired Name ingame on the real servers, character registration will start on August 13th as Blizzard states:

If you’re eager to claim your character name in WoW Classic, take note: we’ll be opening character creation on Tuesday, August 13.** Players with an active subscription or game time on their account will be able to create up to three characters per World of Warcraft account. We’ll have more information on realm names closer to launch, but rest assured—you’ll have plenty of time to figure out your plans for realm domination!

** To align with other regions, the Americas character creation will occur slightly ahead of August 13.
