Nostalgia can be a beautiful thing. It can also be hazy and not entirely accurate. It seems for some World of Warcraft Classic players, nostalgia is a bit of both.Classic, which offers a not-entirely vanilla World of Warcraft experience but close enough, is currently in closed beta, and players are enjoying casting spells and riding mounts like it’s 2005.
But, as Blizzard notes in a post on Battle.net, “the nature of WoW Classic sometimes invokes different memories for different players, and this leads to certain misconceptions for some about what is or isn’t working as intended.” As a result – and perhaps to preempt a massive pile of bug reports from landing on its desk – Blizzard has published a not-a-bug list – aka, a list of commonly-reported gameplay in WoW Classic that is not actually a bug, and is working as Blizzard expects it to.
Blizzard has put out a list of 13 features that players are erroneously flagging as bugs, from movement speed changes to missing icons on the minimap—all are “working as we expect”. “The nature of WoW Classic sometimes invokes different memories for different players, and this leads to certain misconceptions for some about what is or isn’t working as intended,” Blizzard said in a blog post.
However, some of the World of Warcraft Classic bugs are exactly that: bugs. NPCs that offer multiple quests inconsistently display them as a dot or exclamation point. “They were inconsistent in 1.12, and we’ve reproduced the exact inconsistency they had back then,” the forum post stated.
Many of the World of Warcraft Classic bugs reported by players so far are indeed features, but several of the reported issues are bugs that have been left in for posterity’s sake. It just goes to show that while many of us had fond memories of World of Warcraft’s early days, it wasn’t all sunshine and lollipops back then.
