You can have a sense of community by just removing sharding xd?

Having a group finder especially doesn’t take away anything from the game lmao

I’m still trying to connect to that discord

As soon as you add these you enter the world of “the big city” - a place where there are millions of people and you never meet them twice because there’s just too many - and even when you do you’ve met so many people you don’t realise you’ve met someone twice. It distances you from the local community.

When a sufficient number of people move to “the big city”, the town turns into a village, or even a “holiday destination” where the tourists are always there but never speak to anyone, and so the town effect dies entirely.

That’s a bit arrogant. I am pretty sure a lot of wow developers working on the game are much smarter than we are and they can identify issues the game has to face but excel sheets are more important for the management board and shareholders than your little bubble. That is my opinion

Aha, so that’s why I can log into AD right now and see at least 3 or 4 familiar faces in trade chat having bants? :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Well, they admitted it. That’s what the whole “You think you do, but you don’t.” and their miserable attempt at catching the sense using “hardcore realms” is all about. They literally went on stage after announcing Classic and talked about it for the first time in 10 years.

I’m not just making it up. I’d definitely be arrogant if I did.

Trade chat is server-wide and doesn’t go on CRZ. It’s basically the last remaining vestige of the town effect.

So yeah.

So how would having a group finder take anything away from that xd?

Cross realm sharding is the #1 offender, thinking a group finder or cross realm gameplay takes anything away from the community feel in cities is completely delusional imo.

Your trade chat is a village. It, and many other channels and activities, would be A LOT more active if the other problems weren’t here.

guilds and community, yes. but I been there, tried that. I spoke about it on here a few months ago.
guilds and communities may start with the intent of being social, but many of them quickly start to fill up with alts and the regular people get busy with raiding etc and don’t talk. I saw the same names for a few weeks when the community finder was implemented, but after that, it become devoid of any chatter. I don’t have the energy to join numerous different guilds or communities to find such a fleeting thing.

Same here…I have joined several guilds and communities in the hope of finding a chatty one without any luck. And if there are chatty communities or guilds they speak on discord only…

blizzard should make a deal with discord to have all the guild chat be IN discord and IN the game so that it’s not all separated. but that is a whole different matter.

That would be awesome :smiley:

Discord tends to be where people hang out yup.

My issue is finding places where I don’t want to put half the people on ignore and this place ain’t it.

I disagree, that’s just a whole list of ‘I want Classic’.

We had flying, group finder, portals, cross realm play etc etc and still had a community, we still ran into players from our own guilds, our realm, our faction etc. Zones weren’t CRZ in the current expansion, just older expansions, so that they felt busy and had players around them.

I don’t want to go back to the dark ages. I just some middle ground. However, I can’t see them getting rid of WM on/off and moving CRZ back to old expansions only, so you can only be present on another realm (in the current expansion) if you were invited there.

I would suggest join FF Discord if you’re interested in being social.
At least when I was in it was active.

We have a community Discord with most regular posters of the forums if you’re interested :slight_smile: sometimes a bit too social, peaking like 4k messages per day :joy:

We also often make forum runs (you can search “forum run” on the forums)
