In MMORPGs, certain players go all in with the role playing, while others are all about fighting other players. One subset however prefers to do both. It’s this group that will be pleased with the latest new concerning World of Warcraft Classic. Blizzard has confirmed that there will be WoW Classic RP-PVP servers.
Blizzard is set to reveal a full breakdown of the server types across all regions for WoW Classic next week. However, a World of Warcraft community manager Randy Jordan confirmed the existence of RP-PVP servers early on a post on the official forums. The reveal however only covers the North America region.
“We’ve heard your requests and want to let you know that we will be adding an RP-PVP realm in North America for WoW Classic,” stated Jordan in the post. “The comments, feedback, and passion from so many of you about this ruleset has been truly inspiring, and we’re happy to make RP-PVP available for you!”
Jordan’s post seemed to imply that North America will only get one RP-PVP server. This is likely because Blizzard isn’t expecting as many players in WoW Classic as there are in regular WoW. That said, having only a single server does mean that all like-minded players will get to play together. Of course, any interested players should be ready to make a reservation for the RP-PVP server when Blizzard opens them up next week.
As for other regions, Blizzard made no concrete announcement as of yet on whether they’ll also be getting RP-PVP servers. However, it’s likely that they’ll also be getting then. At ChinaJoy this past weekend, Blizzard’s John Hight did make mention of RP-PVP servers, among other types of servers. At the very least, this seems to hint that China will also be getting such a server in their region. However, the wording seems to indicate that other regions will also probably get them as well.
