    Question Classic Wow @ZYGOR

    Are you guys on private servers writing a classic wow guide now before it comes out ??

    NVM I found your most recent post about making sure they work in classic beta and so on...

    There are a few reasons why Zygor devs would never play on private servers to write guides. Not limited to:

    1. If Blizzard caught their account on the private server, they'd be banned for life from live servers, and Zygor's account is very much known to Blizzard.
    2. Regardless of intent or effort, private servers are never exactly the same as live. Something is always changed, usually either XP or rep grinds.
    3. Zygor cannot provide or get feedback from Blizzard if a private server is used. And if Zygor risked it (see point 1) and they didn't get banned in a random sweep, the certainly would be banned by announcing to Blizzard a private server was used.
    4. Finally, how would Zygor get data from a private server if the official Classic isn't fully playable or supports AddOns? Just the mere existence of a guide that couldn't possibly be written without a private server would be a huge red flag.

    There is no way to win with private servers. Only ways to lose.

    I highly doubt it your being over dramatic

    While it might be a bit of an exaggeration, I wouldn't put it past Blizzard to try doing stuff like that. As for the original question, no we're not because private servers are not the classic servers. We have never supported or used the private servers and only work with the Blizzard servers.

    Say what you will, but as an AddOn author, and a moderator at Curse/Twitch, I can tell you that Blizzard knows who writes the popular AddOns. Also, since 2005, have you ever noticed how many ideas that are now baseline in the game came from AddOns?

    Plus, since we are talking about Classic, one of the staff on the panel specifically mentioned that Blizzard will work with AddOn authors to maintain the feel of Classic, yet not include the code that allowed behaviour Blizzard never wanted or intended in the game.

    I stand by my point above for which you are calling me out.
