I thought it would be fun to start a thread to catch and share interesting WoW related things from the official WoW site and forums we find on the way back machine from the classic era.
A banner on the WoW website close to blizzcon advertising the canceled "Star Craft: Ghost"
A celebratory post for reaching 1 million US players and 4 Million world wide
A six chapter telling of WoW history! This was very well done.
Its sad that the WoW website today is a bunch of advertisement and dull forums when back in the day it had a community highlight section showing fan art, cool screenshots and links to the best guides etc. Maybe thats something we could do to carry the torch as best WoW forum? :P User submitted community highlights.
Would love to see what other goodies people can find
I hopped on it myself and There's a couple of Tauren in the Dwarf Racial pictures. Makes me wonder if Tauren were intended to be Alliance at come point.
Oh yeah, this is a thread for me I'm quite often scanning the wayback machine for stuff. I literally have like a 1gb file full of stuff I have found there but sharing it here would be way too much work lol. Here's some snippets anyway.
I found the journey of Brann a couple of weeks ago, and here are some web graphics assets I managed to get too:
A reaally old version of the WoW logo from the 2004 beta website, I don't know why but I love the colours:
Cool posed shots for the game guide again:
Renders of AQ gear and some other epics:
Random website stuff that might be nostalgic for some (battlegrounds release!):
And finally my favourite - original PNGs of the major patch release 'titles'. So cool! Will use these in the future for stuff.
