I am but if its going to work and survive and have a healthy populations those things will have to be part of it, todays players who didnt play classic wont make it past level 30 and theyll go back to the current servers and youll have low pop and never fill a 40 man raid.
They aren't making wow classic because the newer players wanted it they are making it for the people that played it in the past that want it back. All those people on pirate servers, all the people who they lost because they made the game more main stream, and all those die hard fans that still play but want to get back to the golden age of wow. When community meant something and you weren't handed out gear like raids were going out of business.
Will those people stick with wow classic who knows. I know I would like to think I will. But I have a job and a life now, unlike when I was in highschool playing wow for 8-12hours a day on a week day. So we'll have to see.
