I mean they are using the modern client. Should have been expected.
This will be well accepted by players.
Wonder if that means they will be pulling cheebs in early for TBC as well? Sure, they weren't in the original game over a decade ago, but what does this hurt?To me, this just seems like FUN.
TBH, this just feels like early prep for when we move forward in to Wrath Classic when achieves were introduced.
Might only be for the Classic ERA realms?To make it like a 100% completion end game option. To make people keep subbing.
They do hurt!.. unless you forgot about the "Link achi! or no invite". Have to cleare it all on HC to get into normal group... =/
I have nothing against this personally. If it leads to more Classic+ stuff, I'm all for it.
Most likely a 9.1 feature, since they come under "Classic" and "TBC" category, so it is easy to guess that they are meant to be account-wide and viewable from retail (and possibly armory).Unless they intend retail achievements to be viewable in Classic WotLK (or earlier Classic clients) - I doubt we will see those in Classic.My guess is that they want the achievements to be viewable when you log in on your retail character.
Blizzard is pushing old players out with this. We will become pirates once again
I doubt this will push people away from the Classic era realms any more than it does when they realise all they can do is to reclear naxx every week for the rest of their lives, since there will be nothing new.
YES! BRING IT! Go ahead and give us LFG matchmaking while we're at it. Don't change the outdoor world, no LFR, give us cheeves and LFD. Bring the whining toxic meta zoomers to their knees, let them wail and screech into the void. This is awesome! I would love to see transmog also unlocked in retail if you get it in classic servers, I busted my ass raiding to get my main geared, it would be nice to use the stuff in retail. Love love love these datamined hints and the direction they seem to be going!Please ignore r/classicwow devs, save your sanity and don't visit. They don't represent all of us who love classic and are looking forward to TBC. Tons of us look on in disgust at the 1000k XP AN HOUR L33T BLOOD FURNACE XP AOE MAGE GRIND strats. I intend to savor every moment, every quest and quest hub, with the wondrous delight I experienced when it launched.
They might be just used for some serverside checks (or client internal logic), not neccessarily available in the UI (or to addons with lua code)
i'd be fine with that
I mean I would like achievements in classic. It gives people some extra goals.
