Nostalrius Devs Ask New Server Hosts to Stop Using Code

Nostalrius Devs Ask New Server Hosts to Stop Using Code - MMORPG.com

In probably the weirdest twist of a story ever, the Nostalrius team has posted a request to the Elysium "development" team to stop using the World of Warcraft code that it has released to them. The code and database file were released in fulfillment of a threat when Blizzard did not bring up the topic of legacy servers during Blizzcon 2016. However, it seems that Nostalrius admins have had a change of heart.

A few nuggets from the Nostalrius admins' post:

  • only 10% of former players have activated a token to join Elysium
  • they acknowledge that their efforts have mainly resulted in the legacy community being seen as patrons of pirate servers in the larger WoW community
  • by asking the Elysium team and community to stop using the Nost code, they are hopeful that the damage and the new identification as pirates can be reversed

We ask Elysium to join this effort for Legacy realms by stopping to use data that we provided. We know they aim at official legacy realms as we do. We have already stopped the account transfer process from our side as a first step. Nostalrius community is no longer about private servers, it is about official legacy realms.

You can read the full post at the link above.

What do you think? Is it possible to put the "genie back in the bottle"? What's the next step?
