World of Warcraft was first announced by Blizzard at the ECTS trade show in September 2001.[43] Released in 2004, development of the game took roughly 4–5 years, including extensive testing. The 3D graphics in World of Warcraft use elements of the proprietary graphics engine originally used in Warcraft III.[43] The game was designed to be an open environment where players are allowed to do what they please.[44] Quests are optional and were designed to help guide players, allow character development, and to spread characters across different zones to try to avoid what developers called player collision.[45] The game interface allows players to customize appearance and controls, and to install add-ons and other modifications.[46]
While a character can be played on its own, players can group with others to tackle more challenging content. Most end-game challenges are designed in a way that they can only be overcome while in a group. In this way, character classes are used in specific roles within a group.[19][22] World of Warcraft uses a "rested bonus" system, increasing the rate that a character can gain experience points after the player has spent time away from the game.[15] When a character dies, it becomes a ghost—or wisp for Night Elf characters—at a nearby graveyard.[20] Characters can be resurrected by other characters that have the ability or can self-resurrect by moving from the graveyard to the place where they died. If a character is past level ten and they resurrect at a graveyard, the items equipped by the character degrade, requiring in-game money and a specialist NPC to repair them. Items that have degraded heavily become unusable until they are repaired. If the location of the character's body is unreachable, they can use a special "spirit healer" NPC to resurrect at the graveyard. When the spirit healer revives a character, items equipped by the character at that time are further degraded, and the character is significantly weakened by what is in-game called "resurrection sickness" for up to ten minutes, depending on the character's level. This "resurrection sickness" does not occur and item degradation is less severe if the character revives by locating its body, or is resurrected by another player through spells or special items.[23][24]

En Warcraft III la cantidad de razas y héroes creció más y las relaciones entre estos personajes se entretejieron de modo más complejo. A su vez, se establecieron algunas ideas sobre la cosmogonía y muchos elementos sobre la historia antigua para justificar una lucha ancestral de proporciones mayores entre los seres creados por las deidades metálicas llamadas titanes y los demonios liderados por el corrupto titan Sargeras. La lucha, sin embargo, no fue exclusiva entre la creación y los demonios, sino que entre las criaturas continuaron los odios raciales reforzados por las tradiciones bélicas. De este modo, la Alianza se mantuvo enemiga de la Horda hasta el final de la Tercera Gran Guerra con todo y que aparecieron nuevos peligros, como el Azote de los muertos vivientes, que comenzó como una simple plaga, o los territoriales elfos nocturnos. Al final, fueron cuatro las civilizaciones o razas las que se enfrentaron en la guerra: Los humanos, los orcos, los muertos vivientes y los elfos nocturnos, sólo después de haberse desgastado lucharon contra la invasión de los demonios liderados por Archimonde.

The company offers parental controls[40] that allow various limits to be set on playing time. It is possible to set a daily limit, a weekly limit, or to specify an allowed playing schedule. In order to control these settings, it is necessary to log in with different credentials than are used just to enter the game. It is also possible to receive statistics on the time spent playing. Apart from controlling children, adults sometimes use parental controls on themselves.[41] The company supports this kind of protection as otherwise the potential players or their supervisors may choose to uninstall or block the game permanently.
The World of Warcraft launcher (referred to in press releases and the menu bar as the "Blizzard Launcher") is a program designed to act as a starting point for World of Warcraft players. It provides a way to launch World of Warcraft and starts the Blizzard updater. It was first included with the version 1.8.3 patch. The 2.1.0 patch allowed for an option to bypass the use of the launcher. Features of the launcher include news and updates for World of Warcraft players, access to World of Warcraft's support website, access to the test version of World of Warcraft when it is available to test upcoming patches, updates to Warden,[60] and updates to the updater itself. The 3.0.8 patch redesigned the launcher and added the ability to change the game settings from the launcher itself. The launcher update from patch 4.0.1 also allows people to play the game while non-crucial pieces of the game are downloaded. This requires a high-speed broadband internet connection.
08 nov ¿Volverá la noche? Espero que mantenga la diferencia del día y de la noche que existía en el classic. Me gustaba ver el atardecer y ver como se ponía el sol mientras jugaba. También es verdad que la gente que sólo puede jugar de noche no veían la luz del sol y comprendo que se les hiciera pesado. También hecho de menos los fenómenos atmosféricos. Siempre recordaré una tarde en Feralas con la niebla más espesa que haya visto. Literalmente no veía a los enemigos hasta que los tenía encima. Aunque repitieras las zonas, los cambios de clima ayudaban a ver las cosas de distinta manera. Creo que esto será muy bien recibido por la comunidad. Las pociones de crear noche de la Feria de la Luna Negra han sido un gran éxito.Nümayos11 08 nov
The Corrupted Blood plague so closely resembled the outbreak of real-world epidemics that scientists are currently looking at the ways MMORPGs or other massively distributed systems can model human behavior during outbreaks. The reaction of players to the plague closely resembled previously hard-to-model aspects of human behavior that may allow researchers to more accurately predict how diseases and outbreaks spread amongst a population.[149]
15 nov Expansiones Después del Classic Esto fue lo que comentaron en la Blizzcon: "P: ¿Tendrá WoW: Classic el mismo parche siempre o tendrá sus propias expansiones? En este momento estamos intentando restaurar la versión de 2006. Una vez que el juego esté disponible el próximo verano, escucharemos a los jugadores y haremos lo correcto para el juego, pero tendremos que ver." Veo que dejan la puerta abierta pero me preocupa lo de escuchar a los jugadores. Las directrices de los veteranos ya han estado claras y se les ha comunicado por activa o por pasiva. No se si dentro de 3 años tendré otra perspectiva pero ahora mismo no quiero sorpresas en verano.Nümayos35 15 nov
The practice of buying or selling gold in World of Warcraft has generated significant controversy.[143] On February 21, 2008, Blizzard released a statement concerning the consequences of buying gold. Blizzard reported that an "alarmingly high" proportion of all gold bought originates from "hacked" accounts. The article also stated that customers who had paid for character leveling services had found their accounts compromised months later, with all items stripped and sold for virtual gold. The article noted that leveling service companies often used "disruptive hacks ... which can cause realm performance and stability issues".[144] In April 2015, introduced a means to sell in-game gold for real money. A player may spend $20 on a one-month "game time token" that can be sold for in-game gold on the auction house.[36]

Las misiones formaban parte íntegra del juego siendo la mayoría de las veces usadas para continuar la historia en el juego o para guiar al jugador a través de él.41​ El gran número de misiones en cada localización fue muy popular, así como las recompensas por completarlas.15​ Aunque en realidad no eliminaban la necesidad de repetir una tarea o matar de manera repetida a una criatura, la percepción que se tenía de esas acciones era distinta.42​ Las misiones hicieron que los jugadores exploraran cada sección del mundo, lo que repercutió negativamente en los jugadores sociales o de rol.41​ Las misiones que implicaban conseguir objetos de los cuerpos de las criaturas no fueron tan populares.42​ Algunos críticos mencionaron que la falta de misiones que obligan a los jugadores a agruparse hacía sentir a veces que el juego estaba diseñado para un solo jugador,43​ mientras que otros se quejaban de que las mazmorras (que se deben jugar en grupo) no eran fáciles para nuevos jugadores y costaban demasiado tiempo acabarlas.42​ En días posteriores a lanzarse el juego, algunas misiones tenían errores de software haciéndolas imposibles de completar,15​ mientras que la masiva presencia de jugadores nuevos en algunas áreas hacía que no existieran criaturas para matar,41​ o que los jugadores tuvieran que esperar turno para matar a alguna criatura en particular para poder completar misiones.15​

On October 7, 2010 World of Warcraft reached a subscriber base of over 12 million players.[135] Since May 2011, the number of players playing had decreased by 10% from 11.4 million to 10.3 million. Blizzard's CEO Mike Morhaime said that the reason was probably due to a drop-off in the Eastern markets.[136] In 2012, senior producer John Lagrave told Eurogamer that the drop in subscriptions may have also been attributed to the recent release of BioWare's Star Wars: The Old Republic.[137]

Blizzard makes use of a system known as Warden on the Windows version of the game to detect third-party programs, such as botting software, allowing World of Warcraft to be played unattended. There has been some controversy as to the legality of Warden. Warden uses techniques similar to anti-virus software to analyze other running software on the players' PCs, as well as the file system. However, unlike most anti-virus software, it sends a portion of this information back to Blizzard, which caused privacy advocates to accuse it of being spyware.[122] One example of the information Warden collects is the title of every window open on the system while WoW is running.[123] On the other hand, many gamers responded positively to the development, stating that they supported the technology if it resulted in fewer cases of cheating. Blizzard's use of Warden was stated in the Terms of Agreement (TOA).[124]

One of the intriguing things about the old Vivendi structure was that, even when Martin Tremblay joined to run Vivendi's publishing, it was specified: "World Of Warcraft creator Blizzard Entertainment has been designated a stand-alone division reporting to VU Games' CEO, and is not part of Tremblay's product development mandate.
World of Warcraft was recognized at the 2005 Spike TV Video Game Awards where it won Best PC Game, Best Multiplayer Game, Best RPG, and Most Addictive Game.[92] In 2008, World of Warcraft was honoured—along with Neverwinter Nights and EverQuest—at the 59th Annual Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards for advancing the art form of MMORPG games.[93] In 2009, Game Informer ranked World of Warcraft 11th on their list of "The Top 200 Games of All Time".[94] In 2015, the game placed 3rd on USgamer's The 15 Best Games Since 2000 list.[95]

In September 2006, reports emerged of spoof World of Warcraft game advice websites that contained malware. Vulnerable computers would be infected through their web browsers, downloading a program that would then relay back account information. Blizzard's account support teams experienced high demand during this episode, stating that many users had been affected. Claims were also made that telephone support was closed for isolated periods due to the volume of calls and resulting queues.[115] In April 2007, attacks evolved to take advantage of further exploits involving animated cursors, with multiple websites being used.[116][117] Security researcher group Symantec released a report stating that a compromised World of Warcraft account was worth US$10 on the black market, compared to US$6 to US$12 for a compromised computer (correct as of March 2007).[118] In February 2008, phishing emails were distributed requesting that users validate their account information using a fake version of the World of Warcraft account management pages.[119] In June 2008, Blizzard announced the Blizzard Authenticator, available as a hardware security token or mobile application[120] that provides two-factor security. The token generates a one-time password based code that the player supplies when logging on. The password, used in addition to the user's own password, is only valid for a couple of minutes, thus providing extra security against keylogging malware.[121]
15 nov ¿A qué aspiráis realmente en WoW Classic? Buenas, Ha pasado más de una década desde que cientos de miles de jugadores de todo el mundo se adentraran por primera vez en World of Warcraft. En aquella época o incluso un poco más tarde, como fue mi caso, muchos, diría que la mayoría, éramos personas jóvenes con pocas responsabilidades en su día a día y bastante tiempo libre, tiempo que podíamos dedicar al que seguramente era uno de nuestros entretenimientos favoritos. Ahora, varios años más tarde, somos personas con las responsabilidades propias de la vida adulta y lógicamente con una cantidad menor de tiempo libre para dedicar a nuestras aficiones. Teniendo esto en cuenta y siendo honestos con vosotros mismos, ¿cuáles son vuestras aspiraciones para WoW Classic? Yo probablemente me dedique a levear varias clases con tranquilidad (¡me encanta levear!) e intentaré ir equipando a un personaje poco a poco con profesiones y mazmorras. Eventualmente, espero poder acceder a las primeras raids, aunque no pienso que pueda comprometerme a raidear de forma asidua. ¿Qué hay de vosotros?Korvael64 15 nov
