It turns out that this appears to still be the case that internally they have a Linux build of World of Warcraft but as of yet they have decided against releasing it to the public.
The Warden's existence was acknowledged in March 2008, during the opening legal proceedings against MDY Industries.[125] The lawsuit was filed in federal court in Arizona, and also listed Michael Donnelly as a defendant. Donnelly was included in the suit as the creator of MMO Glider, software that can automatically play many tasks in the game. Blizzard claimed the software is an infringement of its copyright and software license agreement, stating that "Glider use severely harms the WoW gaming experience for other players by altering the balance of play, disrupting the social and immersive aspects of the game, and undermining the in-game economy." Donnelly claims to have sold 100,000 copies of the $25 software.[126]
In the United States, Canada, and Europe, Blizzard distributes World of Warcraft via retail software packages.[50] The software package includes 30 days of gameplay for no additional cost. To continue playing after the initial 30 days, additional play time must be purchased using a credit card or prepaid game card. The minimum gameplay duration that a player can purchase is 30 days using a credit card, or 60 using a prepaid game card. A player also has the option of purchasing three or six months of gameplay at once for a 6–15% discount.[51] In Australia, the United States, and many European countries, video game stores commonly stock the trial version of World of Warcraft in DVD form, which includes the game and 20 levels[52] of gameplay, after which the player would have to upgrade to a retail account by supplying a valid credit card, or purchasing a game card as well as a retail copy of the game.
The appearance of the game world was praised by critics. Most popular was the fact that a player could run from one end of the continent to the other without having to pause at a "loading screen" while part of the game is retrieved from storage.[86] The environment was described as "breathtaking". Players found it difficult to become lost, and each area in the game world had a distinct look that blended from one to the next.[21] Critics described the environment as "a careful blend of cartoon, fantasy art, and realism".[81] The game was found to run smoothly on a range of computer systems,[10] although some described it as basic,[21] and mentioned that the bloom light rendering effect can blur things.[20] One reviewer described the ability to fly over long stretches of scenery as "very atmospheric".[83] The user interface was liked, being described as "simple", with tooltips helping to get the player started.[10]

Dos héroes, uno en cada bando, están a punto de chocar en un enfrentamiento que cambiará el destino de su familia, su pueblo y su hogar. Así empieza una espectacular saga de poder y sacrificio donde se descubren las numerosas caras de la guerra y donde cada uno lucha por lo suyo. Adaptación del popular videojuego homónimo.

Blizzard routinely applies older expansions to all accounts as new expansions are released. On June 28, 2011, The Burning Crusade expansion was automatically applied to all previous Warcraft accounts at no cost. On September 19, 2012, the same thing was done with the Wrath of the Lich King expansion,[67] and on October 15, 2013 the Cataclysm expansion was also applied.[68] On October 15, 2014, Mists of Pandaria was applied to all accounts following the release of Warlords.[69] On May 17, 2016, Warlords of Draenor was applied to all accounts to coincide with the release of the Warcraft movie that gives a 30-day trial of the game.[70] All The Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm, Mists of Pandaria and Warlords of Draenor content is now effectively part of the original game, with all new World of Warcraft accounts automatically including these expansions upon creation.[67] As of the pre-patch release of Battle for Azeroth in July 2018, all expansions up to Legion are included in the base game.[71]

30 oct Mi recuerdo del classic Buenas, veo mucha gente ilusionada con la classic. Y no es para menos,ya que blizzard esta dejando vendido al jugador de toda la vida (el que empezó vanila,tbc) y esta casualizando el juego a una forma alarmante. Pero siento decirlo, ya tengo una edad en la que soy consciente que decantarte por algo por la nostalgia es un error. El que tenga +30 años seguro que starship trooper o demolition man le guardan buenos recuerdos,incluso dirían que son pelos bueno. Jaja No. Pura nostalgia. Con classic pasa lo mismo. El jugador de classic me vende el rollo de que esto es jugador hardcore,que no regalan nada. No perdona, estar farmeando como un tontiko , que el leveo sea lentísimo y que te pases el día pateando el mapa de un lado a otro matando gorrinos no es ser hardcore, para nada. Classic es un desbalanceo de clases brutal, es hacer lo mismo 20 veces, no existen arenas y si quieres equiparte para rankear en rbg tirate 2 meses haciendo bandas (que hiciste 200 veces a lo largo de tu vida). La verdad es que el avance PvP es el mismo que ahora. Debe ser que blizzard no tiene foros y no se entera de que dan un paso hacia delante y 3 atrás con el PvP. Mi pregunta es; quitando la nostalgia, en que OS llama el classic? La igualdad entre clases,el leveo ameno y divertido, la dinámica desconocida de los bosses, el gran PvP que ofrece, subir reputaciones y conseguir llaves ? En series blizzard,si vais a sacar refritos de expansiones porque no dais para mas, tener un equipo decente que se de cuenta que la classic no va a tener éxito. La gente que jugaba la classic ya no son niños, ya no tienen tiempo de estar 6 horas al día en un juego que tiene más que visto. Gente que jugaba en servidores privados vista vuestra incompetencia y les metisteis mano al server. Ya que vuestro pastel es un chiste nuevo cada 2 años, mejor le quitamos el pastel al vecino no? El vecino que pone mucho mas cariño e ilusión en un proyecto que una gran compañia. Sacar wotlk y dejaros de experimentos absurdos. Bueno, primero cerrar warmane (OS resulta mas fácil eso que poner temple al equipo PvP) y luego hacéis caja.Saelbukowski30 30 oct
El mapamundi de World of Warcraft es muy extenso, ya que cuenta (a partir de las expansiones) con CUATRO dimensiones o mundos: Azeroth, Terrallende, Draenor y Argus, que cada uno cuenta con continentes, numerosas regiones, ciudades y mazmorras que se pueden explorar. Las tierras incluidas con el juego básico son los Reinos del Este y Kalimdor. Después, con cada expansión se fue aumentando poco a poco el mapamundi añadiendo nuevas zonas a explorar, o remodelando las tierras anteriores, actualmente el juego base World of Warcraft Battlechest incluye contenido explorable hasta la expansión de Legion, incluyendo las dos tierras mencionadas anteriormente, Pandaria, Terrallende y Rasganorte.
