‘World Of Warcraft’ Servers Go Offline; Vanilla Servers To The Rescue

By Mia P. , Updated Jan 20, 2017 10:46 PM EST

"World of Warcraft" is more than a decade old, and has eras. For a lot of fans, it is always a great idea to know if the game is much better at the start, though, unfortunately, there is no way to go back and test it. However, there is vanilla "World of Warcraft" where players can turn the dials back to those simpler builds.

Vanilla "World of Warcraft" Is Relic From 2005, 2006

This Vanilla "World of Warcraft" is reportedly maintained by the Elysium project and happens in the contravention of Blizzard's rules. Reports also claim that it is either an unofficial or a private server, depending on how one sees it.

For that reason, Blizzard shut down the Nostalrius vanilla "World of Warcraft" servers last year. However, reports confirm that Elysium was able to resurrect them recently, reinstating the saved characters from "World of Warcraft." Currently, Elysium reportedly opened another server where everyone starts from scratch.

Vanilla "World of Warcraft" servers are also reported to exist, where concurrent player numbers are expected to be unlocked to go beyond the official Blizzard server levels, up to as high as 10,000 players. As for those servers that feel massively multiplayer, reports indicate that players in droves are flocking to them, Eurogamer reported.

"World of Warcraft" Servers Go Offline For Maintenance

"World of Warcraft" fans will only be given limited access to the massive multiplayer online game. According to reports, this is due to the scheduled four hours of maintenance by Blizzard following the release of the full patch notes for the game's 7.1.5 update.

This means that the "World of Warcraft" servers will be taken offline, as Blizzard makes an update on the back-end of the game. The maintenance is reported to begin at 7 am PST and ends at 11 am PST, according to Express.
