4月27日10:00更新Mark Kern上传N服请愿书视频两部(更新中文字幕版):


暴雪最后说和nost团队一直接触讨论,说明有可能会用nost团队的技术资料或者聘用他们,只是有可能。暴雪强调了他们内部的重视和激烈的讨论。 开启经典服实际上很容易的,但是牵扯到很多后续运营问题,以及如何合理的和现有版本共存。 他们注意到N服团队对这个游戏的关心,并积极的在和N服团队接触。 未来几周会持续接触,或许会有结果。我怎么觉得N服团队有戏了呢? 我理解通篇意思就是要招安N服团队并在暴雪旗下独立运营经典怀旧服。并负责解决一系列运营问题。但是N服团队初衷似乎是要暴雪承认目前的事实存在的合理性。在这点上双方有差距。 未来几周继续谈!



We wanted to let you know that we’ve been closely following the Nostalrius discussion and we appreciate your constructive thoughts and suggestions.

Our silence on this subject definitely doesn’t reflect our level of engagement and passion around this topic. We hear you. Many of us across Blizzard and the WoW Dev team have been passionate players ever since classic WoW. In fact, I personally work at Blizzard because of my love for classic WoW.

We have been discussing classic servers for years - it’s a topic every BlizzCon - and especially over the past few weeks. From active internal team discussions to after-hours meetings with leadership, this subject has been highly debated. Some of our current thoughts:

Why not just let Nostalrius continue the way it was? The honest answer is, failure to protect against intellectual property infringement would damage Blizzard’s rights. This applies to anything that uses WoW’s IP, including unofficial servers. And while we’ve looked into the possibility – there is not a clear legal path to protect Blizzard’s IP and grant an operating license to a pirate server.

We explored options for developing classic servers and none could be executed without great difficulty. If we could push a button and all of this would be created, we would. However, there are tremendous operational challenges to integrating classic servers, not to mention the ongoing support of multiple live versions for every aspect of WoW.

So what can we do to capture that nostalgia of when WoW first launched? Over the years we have talked about a “pristine realm”. In essence that would turn off all leveling acceleration including character transfers, heirloom gear, character boosts, Recruit-A-Friend bonuses, WoW Token, and access to cross realm zones, as well as group finder. We aren’t sure whether this version of a clean slate is something that would appeal to the community and it’s still an open topic of discussion.
于是我们能从N服事件中吸取什么教训呢?过去这些年我们一直在讨论“香草魔兽”。本质上来说,它将毁掉所有的诸如升级、传家宝、 character boosts、战友招募、魔兽代币、位面、团队查找等等。我们不能肯定哪些东西应当出现在这个版本,现在还在开放讨论中。

One other note - we’ve recently been in contact with some of the folks who operated Nostalrius. They obviously care deeply about the game, and we look forward to more conversations with them in the coming weeks.

You, the Blizzard community, are the most dedicated, passionate players out there. We thank you for your constructive thoughts and suggestions. We are listening.

也有wower指出:简单的说就是N服带来的玩家很让暴雪心动,但是公司的老一派和新派系正在进行激烈的讨论要不要开放怀旧服或者开放后,以及服务器的日常维护及管理,包括现版本的直升和游戏商城,坐骑等要不要在怀旧服里加入进去,以及N服管理团队加入或者不加入的处理问题。 在简单的说法就是,暴雪会开怀旧服,但是 2016-4-26 16:18回复 踩着单车流浪去: 考虑到7.0的开放时间,今年就别想了
