Avoid Streamers in WoW Classic

Recommended Posts

UUW5G45.png

AvoidStreamers is a new website created by Redditor littlesunfish that provides a list of all WoW Classic streamers and the server/faction they will be playing on so that you can avoid streamer realms once Classic launches on August 27.

Click here to check out AvoidStreamers!

Classic Winds created a video back in December, discussing 10 reasons to avoid picking a non-streamer realm for Classic WoW and here are some really good reasons:

  • Streamers will be constantly surrounded by a big group of players, they're going to do World PvP and those people will help them farm mats for Scarab Lord, so your chance to earn the title is close to zero.
  • Nobody likes lag. Streamers negatively impact server stability. Most streamers organize various events in the game, so you can expect long queue times and frequent disconnects from the game.
  • Streamers cause faction imbalance because most people want to join the streamer's faction.
  • Trade chat becomes Twitch chat, quite literally.

Simply put, if you're looking for the "authentic Vanilla experience", it's best to avoid streamer realms. What do you think?

I second this to be very honest,I enjoy ...mind you...sometimes ! , to watch a few streams for the kicks of it,or to enjoy to preview content I usually can't get my paws on,but this right here is truly a good ideea since the things I've seen on classic streams are just ,without meaning to offend,utter garbage. I get the ideea of making a raid,going to gank,or making a party and going to gank,but making a raid/party for the sole purpose of gloryfying some person and breathing down his brown cave is ,well,people may not agree but it's just plain wrong. Yes it's a PvP realm,yes I played on those,yes I nearly used to bite my keyboard when I got ganked but it was all in good spirit so to speak,that's the thing about the mmo,you take the good with the bad,but let's be honest,classic will not hold the same weight as it once did.My two cents at least.

Makes sense to avoid these large groups, as they could potentially ruin experience for those playing classic. Especially if they decide to occupy a popular spots. However, this problem might disappear after several weeks or few months. People will get bored eventually, and most of those streamers would go back to current expansion or other games.

Gotta be honest, I don't get streamers and their popularity. I've watched a few and they just sound so fake and annoying most of the time. Always hyping over the smallest things. I get it's kinda like watching football (the actual football, not handegg) on tv, or any other sport for that matter, only that has less annoying commentators (Alan Shearer on MotD aside...)

That said, I'm not sure how long classic and their streamers will stay in the limelight and on launch they may have some possitive effects to highlight the game and keep it going. However it's a bit *filtered* just how many of them got into Beta (or any other beta on that note) purely because of streaming (I get that's because of the above positive affect, but did they do what the beta was intended to do, test bugs, report them, report findings vs vanilla etc).

Interesting perspective, however, given there are not a lot of servers slated for launch there is little likelyhood of landing one without a streamer. I'd suggest just play where you like and try to avoid them, or wait til the hype is over and then log in.

Streamer are free ad, you give them a key to a beta and they will reach thousand of people by just playing it, it's way better than paying thousand of € to make an ad. 

 

It's exactly like when Blizzard used to pay Ozzy Ozbourne, chuck norris and many more to play on an ad just to have a big name to represent their company, but now it's free and streamer make money from the content the company deliver, it's a win win

While that's true you could at least avoid the biggest ones with the most obnoxious followings like asmon.

First of all with the "limited" number of servers to pick from on this Monday/Tuesday, there will be streamers on all servers.
Secondly streamers can adress their followers; "Tradechat is not for chichat, it will hurt our guild/community rep".

Scarab Lord is a long journey with challenging world encounters and raid progression. Don't believe too many streamers will be in the race for that, unless they are in a really good raiding guild with good relations to other raiding guilds on their server.

It's going to be hard to avoid streamers by 27 Aug, because we have to reserve 3 character names on 12 August, starting at 6 PM eastern time (3 PM pacific time), and none of this information is yet available.

Furthermore, since there are only two NA servers (for Normal game-play) this could turn into a nightmare, especially if half of them are planning on using one normal NA server, and the others on the second normal NA server.  And if they all  plan to use the same server, the lag will kill normal playing.

I've already seen threads discussing the number of servers Blizzard is making available, and the general consensus was that two normal NA servers are not going to be enough (neither are the others, but I'm just looking at the impact on my playing).  Unless they have the layering perfected where they can add an infinite number of servers on the fly, are the streamers going to stand in line in a queue with us regular players?   I remember 4-digit queue numbers and 1 hour 45 minute wait times back in 2004, just to get on your server.

Realms ≠ Servers. A given realm can have any number of servers supporting it. So the limited number of realms at Classic launch will probably not pose the sort of problem some are expecting. (There could very well be a variety of launch problems, but the realm number should not be directly involved in such.)

I will be watching that site closely.  I just want to avoid the realm that Asmongold and his cult following are playing on.  I cannot stand his attitude and his ridiculously obvious fake expressions and overreactions.

To be honest I'd be kind of interested in a pvp guild with the intent to constantly harass/rogue Asmongold and other streamers 😛

I hate to be that guy, but with how few servers there are it is extremely improbable that any realm will have no relevant streamers on it

Well i don't think is a good idia to avoid streamers servers in wow Classic because you wont want to be ended in a server with a low players in it. as you know we wont have LFR and you wont be able to find  groups for the raids and dungeons , and wont be fun.

 

its better to be in a server with some steamers even if the game died the server will still have many players playing with the streamers

 

that the positive points you will get when you play in a streamers server,

 

 

and I i know you will see alot of ganks and stuff;s like that but still will be fun

Pretty sure they can do connected realms if that happens. It's apparently restored old data on a current engine, perhaps server structure is the same.

      With Naxxramas coming on December 3rd, Blizzard have now enabled the attuenemtn process for players wanting to be ready immediately when the new raid and Phase 6 arrive! 
      Attunement (source)
      We have updated WoW Classic to make the NPC Archmage Angela Dosantos available at Light’s Hope Chapel.
      Now, if you wish to complete your attunement to Naxxramas in advance of the raid going live on December 3, you can visit the Archmage and take care of it.
      Light be with you!

      That's... a lot of mobs. Korean player 아케인 has put in a whole lot of work and basically pulled, well Maraudon itself (as spotted by Dargut). It takes a lot of work, 21 minutes, in fact, to "pull" it off, but he managed to get just shy of 500 mobs, 490 to be exact, in the usual Maraudon AoE spot, after painstakingly gathering them all up and clearing any problem-mobs, like the plants that have a knockdown effect. He's actually split the usual 1-pull into two, the first one getting 195 mobs and then the rest soon after that. Maraudon is a popular mage spot for XP boosting in Classic, which is why there's plenty of mages out there looking for new and more optimal pull strategies.
      We've skipped to the interesting part in the below video, but you should definitely skip through the video as it's interesting to see how he carefully pulls and gets the mobs to low enough HP so that he can actually AoE them at the end:
      We've actually already seen an even bigger single pull, with 475 mobs by Pastouw, actually at once, but it's always nice to check in when the limits get pushed this far out!

      40 Mages have cleared Molten Core in WoW Classic!
      Here's another World First in the Classic department! A raid of 40 Mages on Venoxis (EU) defeated every single boss in Molten Core, including Ragnaros. They even scored a World First speed kill on Majordomo Executus!
      You can check out the logs for more details here.

      The Mage group also uploaded a video of how they downed Ragnaros. Congrats!

      Just as we resolved matter with one Old God, the OG comes back to bite us. C'Thun is back to his old(ish) tricks as he's beaming players all across the Ahn'Qiraj raid in Classic, and its quite a sight to behold! The phrase "we somehow aggroed C'Thun" is a classic, and knowing it's coming adds a lot of tension to the first part of the video, especially when it's a literal death from above/finger of god situation:
      We've seen this before, as one of the trash mobs, a guardian, can knock players out of the map, which DCs them, and when they log back in they're in C'Thun's stomach for some reason, and old eyeball likes people in there even less than Nathanos does on his roof!
      Here's another, but less clear, clip of the angry god (Source?
