I performed World Of Warcraft at launch, however stopped early and by no means ventured into its expansions. I am fascinated by Blizzard launching and sustaining a number of completely different variations of their outdated recreation, but it surely’s unlikely that’ll begin enjoying them. I might be extra curiosity in the event that they as a substitute took World Of Warcraft Basic after which spun it off in its personal new route, Previous College RuneScape-style.
Have you learnt what else initially launched in 2007? Rock Paper Shotgun, that is what. I went wanting within the archive for one thing Burning Campaign-shaped and did not discover a lot, and so as a substitute here is some Graham trivia.
