World of WarCraft Classic – UGF Guild

World of WarCraft Classic – UGF Guild

World of Warcraft Classic has gone live in the last couple of weeks and we are very excited about it at UGF. I caught up with two of our council members who are both avid WoW players to get their take on this recreation of the first World of Warcraft. As Universal Gamers Federation we have our own guild named < Universal Gamers > and is on the EU – Mirage Raceway server. The Guild has around 40 active members and is growing daily.

What is the difference between the current WoW and WoW Classic? And for those that have never played WoW ever what is it and what do you think is the draw to it?

The differences between classic and retail are far from small. Everything takes longer to accomplish and seems to be much harder to do in classic than in retail. For example, in retail WoW spending 15 mins killing a few creatures and completing a few quests you reach level 10 in no time at all.

Classic WoW you could spend an hour in the game doing the starting quests and find yourself at level 6. The levelling system in Classic is more of a grind and sometimes can be tedious. However, for some reason people love that and pressured Blizzard into bringing back Classic WoW.

Classic WoW is by far more rewarding when you accomplish something. Also, whilst levelling in retail you can get your mount; a creature that you can ride; that will make you travel 60% faster than your running speed at level 20. Also, it didn’t cost a lot to do.

Classic on the other hand, you can only get your mount at level 40 and while your levelling to that you really want to keep in mind how much it will cost and if you can afford it. It is 20 gold coins for your training and another 80 gold coins to buy your mount which is an insane amount to earn.

For Classic though it really is about grinding and makes up about 60% of the gameplay. When you get into the higher levels there is a sense of accomplishment. Therefore, i think this game in classic is so addictive. The World of Warcraft makes your character seem insignificant where on the other hand it makes the world seem so much bigger than you which its more significant.

You really do feel like a starting out hero or champion making your mark in the world and the experience you have in the game gets better and better with every hour you spend in the game.

What’s your role in the UGF Guild?

Our guild name is < Universal Gamers > and i am the Guild Master.

What class or classes are you playing and why?

I play a Tauren Warrior. I have always played as a tank role in MMOs. I just love beating an enemy with sword and shield in hand and can just imagine being there in the moment.

How long have you played WoW and why would someone join the UGF WoW Guild?

I have always liked playing World of Warcraft. I have played the game since the beginning when it first came out and have seen the game change a fair bit in its 15 years of updates and expansions.  Even a few zones have changed since its release due to one of the expansions endgame bosses Deathwing.

Our guild is new but so is the Classic version of WoW. I want to create a community in the game where everyone has a relaxing time playing it. It is important for players to feel they can play at their own pace. But ultimately one day raiding and hitting the end game as much as we can with as many people as possible will be a pretty epic experience. Being part of a gaming community, we don’t just play World of Warcraft but so many other games. So, if someone who joins us through WoW and doesn’t play it all the time there is always someone else within our community to play other games with.

What is your top tip for playing WoW Classic?

My top tips for playing WoW is if your new to classic WoW read the quests as they give you all the information you need to complete them, and if you get stuck don’t hesitate to ask someone. We are always here to help.

What drew you in to play WoW Classic?

It was literally the only PC game that my friends played when we were kids and I first played it at a friend’s house and got hooked immediately. I had never heard of the game before I tried it that day. Interestingly it was through a dialup internet connection.

Who are you and why do you like playing WoW Classic?

As a gamer, I have been playing all kinds of games over many years and started off on World of Warcraft as my first PC game when it launched and lost my interest in the game when they started doing major changes in terms of gameplay. For me it is very nostalgic to be able to play old school WoW again as it brings back so many fond memories of when I started playing the game that blew my mind back in the day, and showed me what a pc game could really be.

What is your role in the UGF Guild?

I don’t really have a role however I do try to help players out if I can.

What class or classes are you playing and why?

I am playing as a main priest and an off hunter. The priest is mostly because i never played one back in vanilla and the hunter is just because it’s a fun class to play.

Who do you like playing with and why would someone join the UGF WoW Guild?

I like playing the game with my friends that I’ve been playing games with for a few years now. Mash, Mouflon and Stox which usually ends up with laughs and jokes. As to why someone would join the UGF guild in WoW? All i can say is that if you want to be part of an awesome community where our aim is helping each other out and ultimately having fun, then UGF is the guild for you.

What is your top tip for playing WoW Classic?

My top tip would be, to try out as many classes as possible and find what class/spec suits your playstyle the best. Do not be afraid of asking for help when needed as the game is much harder in some areas by yourself and more unforgiving than the retail version.
