    Maybe you're thinking of non-heroics. They weren't as hard as pre-nerf TBC heroics but only some try-hard edge-lord would argue Wrath heroics were steamrolled the first few weeks of launch.

    I never got to play Vanilla, I registered an account back then, got a Undead Warlock to level 10, and then I tried to get my ass over to Orgrimmar just to realize that my computer sucked balls, by the time I was able to play it properly was when TBC just had been released.

    Might actually try it out now, just for the PvP, couldn’t ever be arced with raiding even as simple as it is in the latest expansions, can’t really see myself doing it in vanilla, but really want to do the good Alterac Valley runs.

    The most difficult launch 80 content was 3 drake Sartharion.

    But the hardest 'cheevo was Immortal/Undying in Naxx because there was always some derpface who would die to bad.

    Naxxramas was very important as a raid in general, it told you who in your guild was actually retarded thanks to Thaddius' fight showing who knows what clockwise is, and who didn't and would end up killing 4 people at once.

    Suffice to say, many e-gurlz met their end to Thaddius. Fittingly, Thaddius is lorewise a construct made up of women and children.

    I saw this video:



    The gist of it: streamer hates being corpse camped by stream snipers, wants for the network of streamers to compile a "blacklist" of stream snipers to avoid doing anything with and to use whatever influence they hold over their devoted fans to push it.

    His dream scenario is these stream snipers will be so undesired and avoided they'll tremendously lag behind the gear treadmill and become irrelevant.

    But little does he know...

    Eviscerate deals "STATIC" DAMAGE.

    I completely forgot about the Sarth fight. Shows how memorable it was. The ilvl 226 caster trinket was nice, though.

    Oh yeah, so hard. Once I hit 80, it took me 3 weeks to get it and I never even wanted it, just got it accidentally.

    - I hit 80 and install the addon that lets you link fake achievements
    - Raid leaders are constantly gathering PUG raids to Naxx. I link them my fake "immortal" achievement and they instantly invite me in. Nobody inspects my full green gear.
    - In my first run, I changed half of my gear to Epic.
    - Then also did 10 man run, then some more raids I don't remember the names (with the lava), got some epics from heroics, etc, etc.

    - Third week, we do a PUG run and nobody dies.

    Wow, that was hard! And that was before Ulduar got released.

    I quit the game shortly afterwards.

    They were easily doable in leveling gear. No need to do normals. That's steamrolled in my book.

    Streaming is cancer so I hope to see lots of gank gangs stalking these streamers.

    EDIT: oh fuck he actually lauds China's social credit system. Just nuke these people already.

    He is stupid and anybody who agrees to the idea. Not because "muh china" but it will backfire. You must be blind to not see this backfire. What happens when you blacklist people? In one place? They tend to congregate. You will have guilds, raids created by people that were blacklisted by "le streamers xd lol". He is the kind of person "I can be a dick to other people but other people can't be a dick to me."

    You mean that addon that didn't exist until after cata came out? I have no investment in whatever argument you're in with metro but if you did play on a private server at least don't pretend you were actually playing wrath at release. 3.3.5 talents, a large portion of the playerbase having farmed naxx back when the actual expansion was out...yeah, I'm sure it was really easy.

    Some time before Ulduar (is this what the next raid dungeon was called after Naxx?), like it says in my post. Not on launch of wraith, I had school exams or smth before I could get back to it.

    Huh?

    I never played on private servers, but I quit the game right after beating Naxx, so my memory is fuzzy and if I got something wrong, doesn't mean I'm lying (??? why the fuck would I).

    I wasn't emotionally invested in that shit of a game at that point. I loved TBC and raided it like crazy. We killed Illidan before the attunement to BT got removed and I was very proud of that. Sunwell did a number on my mage - people stopped inviting me, because warlock simply damaged almost twice better than mages and my guild asked me to stay outside the raid dungeon and occasionally buff everyone outside. They stopped taking mages into the raid. It sucked. I quit the game. Then I came back for Wraith for a short while and then quit for good, because the changes were just too much. (the sheer easiness of the game, I got almost all BIS items in under 3 weeks... and everyone could see all raid content in some kind of easy mode, I don't remember what exactly the mechanic was, and that just broke it for me)

    I remember all of TBC content really well. Wraith on the other hand I can barely recall.

    The sheer amount of those claiming to be from vanilla days is quite impressive considering that during investor's call in 2009 when WotLK was midway going on Blizzard said that about 100 000 000 players had played the game and quit by that point and only 10% of those who played during vanilla reached the level cap.

    It's like whenever you bring up Ultima Online. Everyone says they played during beta and were there when Lord British was killed (even though there was about 20-25 people present when Lord British was killed).

    Resident Blizzdrone here; no way to completely bypass it as far as I know, but most Blizzard games nowadays have a file that lets you launch the game directly instead of through the Blizzard launcher. I do that because my computer is old and the Blizzard Update Agent Spyware Launcher tanks my FPS and refuses to run games in Administrator Mode. For example, Starcraft 2 is ran through SC2_Switcher.exe to bypass the app, and Starcraft Remastered has a file for Starcraft Launcher (that goes through the app) and for Starcraft itself (which bypasses the app). I'm guessing the Classic Beta lets you do that, too; just find the right .exe.

    You still have to periodically launch the app every so often whenever there's a new update, as you can't do it through the login screen you get when bypassing the app.

    I'm going to 5 box a paladin, priest, mage, warlock, warlock party. Then after awhile I'll do a 4 or 5 box party of just hunters to camp in STV.

    No way I'm "practicing" just to play. No way I'm joining a hardcore guild again. No way I'm rushing anything or giving a fuck about raid progress. I'll play for my own pleasure this time.
