After receiving a cease-and-desist letter from Blizzard Entertainment, “Wow” private server Nostalrius went offline in April 2016. Executives from both sides (Nostalrius & Elysium legacy project) met and mentioned the real reason for the shutdown.
During the latest BlizzCon, the Nostalrius team released their arrange for legacy realms that may potentially accomplish the dreams of several “WoW” fans everywhere. As for Blizzard Entertainment, they revealed details for the “Wow: Legion” but left vanilla “WoW” privately. Subsequently, the Nostalrius team decided to take the matter into its hands. How? By releasing the Nostalrius origin code and equipment to the community, particularly one individual server which aims to revive Nostalrius.
The Nostalrius, given to the current Legacy project – Elysium, is thought to share similar values of passion and volunteerism. Regarding a Nostalrius admin, their group will continue collaborating with Elysium.
But now, it would seem that the people behind the Elysium job have heard the Nostalrius shutdown demand, and their answer is a good resounding “no.” In a post-manufactured on the project’s official discussion boards, Elysium has got declared their intentions to hold their project was running as well as plans to remove Nostalrius’s data from their server.
“Elysium Will Prevail”
According to the post, the people behind Elysium have been focusing on their primary code named Anathema, which is reportedly “equal to or superior to the Nostalrius primary.”
Anathema will replace Nostalrius, and all traces of the central Elysium that receive, its will delete. Furthermore, characters created first of Elysium will be taken care of while Nostalrius-related info will take out, though whether Nostalrius personas are part of this removal remains unclear.
The response further refutes claims by Nostalrius that only 10% of users have migrated to Elysium, saying that 52% of Nostalrius active accounts transferred over 16 days. Elysium even more boasted 17k players online concurrently at re-launch and over 30k players online simultaneously across four different realms.
“Nostalrius handed us the torch, we have no intention of putting it out,” explained the post. “Portion of the Environment of Warcraft community altogether feels that people are pirates and have shady practices. However, no matter what filter they attempt to set over their perception of us, we only have one motivation: To restore and grow enthusiasm to a game that we like, and that many regarded as gone forever. It is the community we must be.”
With all that said, Elysium can be calling for supporters to “be the bigger man” rather than attack other Legacy jobs or Blizzard. “Little or nothing will be accomplished through express of strength or primary insults,” reads the post.
Well in that case! I suppose we realize how Elysium feels about the whole matter. Although, calls for unifying persons behind a classic server maneuver appear to be dropping on some deaf ears. We’ll assume that Nostalrius will press on since it always provides while Elysium will sail their ship. Yo ho, yo ho….
Which side of the coin do you fall over? Do you think Nostalrius gets the right idea, or do you consider Elysium has the to maintain their server? Provide us your thoughts below in the comments.
