Greetings fellow guildies – long time no see 🙂
Today the Nostalrius-Team announced that – since Blizzard won’t do it – they are going to once again quench our thirst for Vanilla World of Warcraft.. more or less.
Now what exactly does that mean?
Earlier this year in April, when Nostalrius shut down their servers many people of the Nostalrius-Team – official statement says that it’s at least 16 of them – went on to work on another private server project. The project they went to was rumored to be “Elysium” and today we got confirmation that this is indeed what happened.
Elysium is the new “international” project from Valkyrie-WoW, who have been around for a LONG time – at least 8 years if I’m not mistaken. They used to be mostly Russians back in the day.
Today Nostalrius announced that they are going to give their source code and character databases to Elysium and they in turn announced that they will – in the next few days – apply all data to their servers and start running Nostalrius data as it was left back in April (with the addition of adding their Elysium character database).
So as soon as their “new” server goes live everyone that played on Nostalrius will be able to jump right back in where they left off in April.
All of this on a server that – due to being in Russia – will not likely be as easy to get rid of as Nostalrius and with an eager team of ex-Nostalrius folks that will try to drive this Nostalrius2.0 forward.
