We are getting closer and closer to the arrival of Warcraft nostalgia, but there are many netizens on the Internet who are not optimistic about the upcoming nostalgia. Most netizens believe that the popularity of the nostalgic service is predictable, but what follows is the continuation of the AFK, the return of the official service to the official service, and the rapid decline of the number of nostalgic services is almost unstoppable. Some netizens even questioned whether it will be a problem whether they can gather 40 people to make a team copy. Is that Warcraft nostalgic service still available? For this problem, the cigarette analysis is as follows:
The game itself
As far as World of Warcraft is concerned, it is a milestone in the development history of online games and is of epoch-making significance The popular Korean online games "Red Moon", "Legend", "Miracle" and other games before Warcraft are all stuck in the mode of monster upgrade, equipment stacking, and PK (no derogation here) The meaning of these games, I have been addicted to these games).
With the emergence of World of Warcraft, everyone found that the original online games can be played like this! Missions, dungeons, battlefields, and achievements are all exciting The player’s adrenaline has kept countless players on it all night.
The reason why World of Warcraft can stand for 15 years is still not falling, and Blizzard has done a lot of foreshadowing before launching it It's not unrelated, from Warcraft 1-3, the plot is close and interlocking. Moreover, through the ten-year-old Warcraft circle fan in the early stage, once World of Warcraft was launched, it quickly occupied the online game rankings.
Then, after a long period of Warcraft’s operation, World of Warcraft establishedThe huge worldview has become a unique "world" in online games with its own independent history. Old players at the time praised "Warcraft is not a game, but a world!" The missions of Warcraft closely follow the history of Warcraft, allowing players who did not have plugins to experience its rich mission system and the history of Azeroth again. There are many epic missions, such as the "Love With the family" mission!
The era when World of Warcraft was launched was the era of Blizzard’s infinite beauty. Back then, "Blizzard’s products must belong to Boutique! " This slogan is the best publicity for World of Warcraft.
And World of Warcraft also adheres to the usual Blizzard game style "easy to learn, difficult to master", World of Warcraft For a person who has never played a game, a simple and easy-to-understand novice tutorial can quickly help you through the confusion period, but if you want to play a professional career, it requires a lot of energy and time.
Then, World of Warcraft has an operation that many online games did not have at the time, that is " jump! " Yes, that’sThis seemingly simple action, in the online game period when Korean games were all the rage at the time, the action of "jumping" rarely appeared. It is precisely because of the addition of this action that the characters in World of Warcraft are more realistic and the operation smoother. There is even more anger, which is why the old players like to jump (haha)!
Game music, sound effects
Any oneGames, music, and sound effects are all important. Although it will not affect the gameplay, it will affect the player's experience. I remember when I stepped into Stormwind City for the first time, I was immediately shocked by the majestic music. At that time, I couldn’t imagine a game that could blend music and graphics so perfectly. Looking at the majestic city walls of Stormwind and listening to the rich music, it felt like I have never encountered it in countless games since then.
In addition, the sound effects of the game are second to none in the online games at the time, the roar of the characters when they jump, the sound of the flame burning when the mage fires a fireball, and the call of the Murloc team Ullaula. Human nightmare.
The equipment of World of Warcraft adopts equipment binding and pickup binding settings that were not available in many online games at that time. There are more options to obtain, and more restrictions are attached.
For example, if you want a Flint Staff, you have to go down the Dead Mine dungeon yourself, because this equipment is bound to pick up. Auction houses are not available for purchase. This further improves the participation of player dungeons, and there will be no part-time jobs and some bosses (of course, the emergence of the later G group broke this rule).
Of course, equipment, backpack items, and gold coins do not fall when the character dies.It was a setting that was contrary to the mainstream Korean tour at the time. Its appearance effectively avoided some malicious PKs and made the game concept of teamwork more deeply rooted in the hearts of the people.
Game race, occupation
There are 2 major versions of World of Warcraft 60 Factions, 8 races, 9 professions, each race has different racial talents and professions, so players who enter the World of Warcraft for the first time can choose their favoriteYou have to work hard for your race and profession. When the level reaches the upper limit, you have more desire to practice a different trumpet. This is one of the reasons why World of Warcraft is more playable.
In addition, the design of forcibly dividing players into two opposing camps in the game was also unique at the time. The most humane part is that characters between opposing camps meet in the game, and language cannot communicate, so it is easier to trigger a battle between camps. Moreover, in terms of mission design, World of Warcraft also deliberately guides some neutral map missions to camp conflicts, such as the famous Hillsbrad Hills mission map.
There are also trading systems, seamless map links, 9 professional skills, 3 life skills, talent tree design, etc. And so on, are all the designs that made World of Warcraft dominate at the time, so I won’t list them all here. Friends who are interested can discuss in the message board or private message below!
In summary, cigarettes I personally think that even if it is released today, World of Warcraft will still have its place in the dazzling array of online games! Therefore, the launch of Warcraft’s nostalgic server will not only attract the return of most old players, but also Attract new players, because the charm of Azeroth is unparalleled!
