Since Blizzard has not announced any "fresh" Classic servers for Burning Crusade, part of the community is now taking matters into their own hands. At the beginning of March, thousands of players want to storm a sparsely populated WoW Classic server in order to build a new community there from level 1 on – without bots, broken economy and overpopulation.
We reported about it: At BlizzCon 2021, the developers of Blizzard did not comment fresh servers for Burning Crusade Classicon which all characters would start at level 1. Former WoW game designer Kevin Jordan believesthat such realms would be aimed primarily at hardcore players who have already experienced such a restart on the private servers several times. "Normal" WoW players would quickly fall behind on such fresh TBC servers.
But is it really like that? How many players feel like starting from scratch with Burning Crusade Classic? The answer to this question could be given by the WoW community itself in the next few weeks. That is because they launched an action called "The Fresh Crusade (EU)".
Specifically, the action is about storming a sparsely populated WoW Classic server with all interested parties on March 5, 2021, in order to then build a new community there from level 1 – without bots, broken economy and overpopulation. The campaign is organized via the "The Fresh Crusade (EU)" – Discord.
One of the German players who are campaigning for the action is the digital expert and book author Dr. Frederik Weinert. Dr. Weinert not only drew our attention to the campaign in an email, he also revealed that over 3,000 players are now planning to take part in the campaign. At the weekend there were just over 1,000 Classic enthusiasts.
Guilds are already being formed that want to be divided equally between the Horde and the Alliance. It is currently not yet known which server will be able to look forward to a strong population jump next Friday.
Will Blizzard ultimately offer "fresh" servers for Burning Crusade Classic thanks to this promotion? What do you all mean? And would you want to play on such a realm? Let us know in the comments!
