Just thought I'd keep everyone in the loop with what's been going on and what's to come! Exciting times indeed; Classic WoW has been announced and 1.9 is right around the corner. I will first address the issue of server longevity and then dabble a bit about the preparation that is needed for the chaotic War Effort.
Classic wow - What does it mean for us?
It means we won! Nostralia is a contemporary relic devoted to awaken any sense nostalgia that left us in awe, in our youth. Every vanilla private server was set up and developed for the sole purpose of providing that experience we all love and miss since the official experience was long gone.
With that said, Nostralia hopes to pass the baton onto Blizzard once they launch Classic WoW. We trust their intentions will be true, true Vanilla, and that the oceanic community is able to partake in a server with hundreds of thousand of players once and for all.
Important: We speculate Classic WoW will not be ready for another year or two based on what has been said thusfar by Blizzard. This will give us more than enough time to progress through all our patches/ content without any rush. It would make for a fitting end to Nostralia - reaching a point of 1.12 stagnation comfortably.
We have come a long way, to say the very least. We will suspend the tears that will eventually come, as there is much more left to enjoy. Needless to say, every day is a blessing: working with a group of people I adore, providing a recreational activity that people enjoy, and continuously improving on myself and learning from my mistakes. I will make the most of these days before the inevitable comes, and I hope you all do too.
It is paramount that every player understands our server rules. If anyone has any doubt about any, please don't hesitate to contact staff directly via our Discord Channel.
Your voices have been heard and we have made the following change to rule 6:
"Account sharing is not allowed except for the use of professions, we will monitor..."
Something else to point out is the "Rule Break Amnesty" as described in the Urgent-Updates channel on Discord. If you are in possession of an account that's not yours without official gifting, have taken advantage of the transfer system, or similar. Please message staff and we will facilitate bringing you in line with the ruleset with no adverse consequences. This amnesty will end on the 30th of November.
Anyone violating said issue and/ or taking part in any account hoarding activity will be subject to permanent bans. These open transfers are for you, please do not exploit them and ruin it for everyone else. If you come across ANYONE violating these rules, please get in touch with staff immediately so that we can take swift action.
Things are about to get hectic as we approach the holiday period and the War Effort. There will be a few players attempting to break rules, so once again, please make sure you fully understand what the rules entail and report them accordingly.
We are still short on staff, so if you are someone that is available throughout the week, is professional, and have a good understanding of Vanilla WoW and its content, please PM me or Sinqnew at your earliest convenience.
Last but not least, i can't stress enough that the people running the show are mostly comprised of people with full time work, families, and IRL responsibilities. You will need to be patient and polite with them as they are with you.
We do not claim to have 24/7 3 minute response time support. Submit a ticket if you need something looked into or contact us directly for urgent matters and we'll get back to you as soon as we can, promise!
Anyway, that's all for this week! Thank you all for sticking around, its surreal to see so many of you. I wish you all a wonderful week!
