The anticipation surrounding the release of Blizzard Entertainment’s World of Warcraft Classic continues to build at a breakneck pace within the Warcraft community. Players are gearing up for the game’s release on August 27, 2019 by reminiscing with old guild mates on the newly released classic forums and exploring memories long since past on the Wow Classic beta.
Blizzard has been doing everything possible to help prepare players for the impending release. They recently announced that players will be able to reserve their classic names beginning August 12 and the original vanilla servers will be returning.
One group of passionate players has been petitioning Blizzard since March of 2019 for a Role-play Player verse Player server (RP-PVP), after it was revealed that Blizzard would not be adding one to the Classic WoW servers. A thread on the official Blizzard forums was made and a lot of support poured in from the WoW community.
The research and argument the players made was apparently very convincing, as today Blizzard announced Classic WoW will be officially receiving a RP-PVP realm.
We’ve heard your requests and want to let you know that we will be adding an RP-PVP realm in North America for WoW Classic. The comments, feedback, and passion from so many of you about this ruleset has been truly inspiring, and we’re happy to make RP-PVP available for you!
Realm information (names, rulesets, and time zones) will be posted before the weekend so you can make plans with your friends and get ready to reserve your name on your preferred realm(s) on August 12, 2019 6:00 PM.
Congratulations to the RP-PVP community!
