In the interview, Anthony and Adrian spoke about how different the game is in 2021 versus 2007, and how different things are in today's PvP community. While tornados are a totally wild and random mechanic in Nagrand Arena, it is a great thing to see something like that coming back for Burning Crusade Classic, whereas Tornados were removed in Nagrand fairly early on. Below are some excerpts from the interview on this topic:
: I think the tornadoes are a really fun way to show that Arenas were quite different than how they are now. with you know with those types of mechanisms put towards the end of the rounds.
: I think it was Hydra I was watching tornadoes to kite Rogues. It’s like dam these really gifted players are coming in and using the environment to their advantage, it is really cool to see.
OTK Asmongold Invitational
Community Events in World of Warcraft Classic and the Burning Crusade Classic Beta were extremely popular on Twitch and Blizzard was taking notice. The
OTK Asmongold Invitational
had a massive viewership on Twitch and Gaming Verdict asked Anthony and Adrian what their thoughts were on the event and if they drew any inspiration from it. Below are some excerpts from the interview on this topic:
: So we did get a lot of inspiration from it, not necessarily from the show, but the excitement around the show itself, I mean we were excited about the show as well there’s a lot of exciting people on that, and there were players who haven’t competed in a long time, but also players who’ve been competing, or were competitors way back in the day.
: My personal favourite part of it was (I don’t know how much of the podcast you saw) one of the members of OTK/(Esfand) was a talent for the show. He did these green screen live interviews where he just basically green screen interviewing the players. firstly it’s just a stroke of genius I love, seeing that kind of stuff like super integrated into the game. Secondly, it gave it a really nice human to feel and that’s one of my favorite things about when I’m playing classic myself.
Classic Arena Tournament 3v3
Gaming Verdict also asked about why Blizzard decided on a 3v3 event instead of a 5v5 Arena event, as well as what the team learned from the World of Warcraft Classic events in Warsong Gulch and Arathi Basin. Below are some excerpts from the interview on this topic:
: Well, we chose three 3v3 at first, because we felt like it would focus really well on like the balance between all three of the brackets. But we understand that there’s a lot of people like I was saying, who jumped right into 2s as their very first version because for them it’s very accessible and you can try double DPS and things like that.
: Yeah, yeah, the Community typically gravitates towards 3v3 as the most competitive format I think it’s fair to say. In my opinion, I used to love playing 5s like that’s what I am super excited about. Like AV, I would love the idea of doing something with that.
