For the World of Warcraft veterans out there looking to get back into game with the launch of WoW Classic, it seems like the perfect opportunity to find old friends, party members, and guildmates to once again take up the mantle of the Alliance or the Horde. While it does seem unlikely for old World of Warcraft buddies to reunite again after a decade-long lapse since the first expansion came out, Blizzard apparently has your back. With the introduction of a new forum tool called Classic Connections 2004-2006, veterans of the bygone days of World of Warcraft, before any of the expansions came out, now have the opportunity to find each other again on the Blizzard Forums.
The forums titled “Classic connections 2004-2006 – find people here”, are available on both the US and European Blizzard WoW sites, and offer three different options: reconnecting with people who used to play ALLIANCE with you, or played HORDE with you, or even engaging with new people you “haven’t yet met.” Each of these is then broken down into the Realm types, like RP, PvP, and so on, and then the specific Realms you played on to help you find fellow adventurers you might have long lost contact with more easily.
Through the official “Classic Connections” forum set up by Blizzard, you can work your way through a survey to find and reunite with the people who were playing on the same server at the same time on the same side (Horde or Alliance) as yourself, hopefully bumping into some familiar faces along the way. If you want to know where to Buy World of Warcraft Classic Items, 5mmo.com will be your best choice.
While some have complained that it hasn’t been advertised very well, the forums have quickly picked up, with now over 100 thousand users using it to reach or track down former companions so they can catch up and maybe even make plans to re-live their experiences when World of Warcraft Classic releases.
Speaking of, Blizzard are still currently running a Pre-Launch Test so current WoW players can get an early glimpse of the game. It has already completed its tests but players are free to keep playing, though it will end at some point today. For those interested, Blizzard have also shared the PC requirements needed to run the game, but anyone who is currently playing WoW should have a set-up that already meets those requirements.
