Nostalrijski operateri World of Warcraft još uvijek razgovaraju s Blizzardom

Borba za vanilije poslužitelju World of Warcraft is still an ongoing affair. The operators of Nostalrius have acknowledged that Blizzard just didn’t kick them in the balls by shutting down the server and leaving them out in the cold to suffer. In fact, Blizzard is still in talks with the group regarding some sort of collaboration involving the revival of a vanilla server.

igra Rant picked up comments from one of Nostalrius’ volunteers named Daemon, who stated…

"Vrlo smo uzbuđeni da bi mogli pomoći Blizzard razumjeti dio svoje zajednice tražeći naslijeđene poslužitelje i mnoge druge srodne teme, u nadi da će u konačnici omogućiti da legalno igrati prethodnih proširenja igre."

Even better is that Blizzard invited the crew out to Irvine, California to the official headquarters where they’re working out some kind of deal to get those old servers up and running for a newer generation of WOW igrači.

Nostalrius previously had 800,000 registered users and regularly had an active user base of 150,000 at any given time. In fact, with Blizzard bleeding around a million subscribers a year, it’s almost safe to say that the million that Blizzard lost from the main World of Warcraft, Nostalrius stekao.

Privatna server je tek u pogonu za godinu dana i da je dio napora od pet godina u vrijednosti od rada s volonterima da je napravio to moguće. Rad na serveru je počelo 2010 i završio početkom 2015.

Nakon što je u pogonu samo godinu dana, Blizzard zgazi zatvoriti privatni server, navodeći da su morali štititi IP kako bi se izbjeglo dobivanje uhvaćen u mrežu hrvanje sa zakonitostima. Dovoljno je reći, igrači koji su igrali marljivo na Nostalrius nisu bili zadovoljni server se zatvori u potpunosti prema dolje.

Stvarni problem je da su stotine tisuća igrača samo željela doživjeti vanilije World of Warcraft again, and Nostalrius opened up that opportunity for them. Now it’s a matter of whether or not Blizzard will acquiesce and bring back a vanilla server or simply keep shutting down any of the vanilla private servers, much to the chagrin of their own audience.

Hopefully greed doesn’t completely win out and we see them doing the right thing.
