You can almost see it, right? And ...

A pirated World of Warcraft legacy server project takes a turn for the bizarre

Over the last nine months, we’ve discussed the fate of the legacy server Nostalrius. The project was first created by a team of dedicated World of Warcraft players who wanted to experience the game as it existed prior to the launch of The Burning Crusade in 2007. It was then hit with a cease-and-desist order from Blizzard and forced to shutdown. In most cases, that would’ve been the end of it. But the Nostalrius’ story was big enough that Blizzard agreed to meet the team in question, inviting them to company ...
