World of Warcraft Classic has been around for a really short while – and it has already been gaining a lot of popularity and found itself in the middle of controversy too! The game brings back some older classic characters and storylines – however, the game is getting a new update where the Dire Maul Dungeon will be coming to WOW.
Let us take a closer look at this update – and also at why gamer are unhappy with the developers of this game.
Man I was really looking forward to getting back on classic and playing reforge. I have been waiting for reforge since the day all the channels had no one in it. Not anymore @BlizzardCS @Warcraft you have failed your community #Blizzardboycott fuck you

New World of Warcraft Classic Update: What Does it Bring?
The basic idea behind WOW Classic is to take the game back to the pre-2006 era and re-build certain things from thereon. This has caught the attention of some of the longtime gamers and hardcore fans of the game. However, the game has a number of bugs and glitches which have caused great pain to the gamers. A new update to World of Warcraft Classic is coming this week where the Dire Maul Dungeon will go live.
For those who may not be aware, Dire Maul is a dungeon of a high level which was first introduced way back in 2005! Now that fans are queuing up for hours to play WOW Classic, the company will re-introduce this popular dungeon in their latest update. Hopefully, this update would also quash some common bugs.
If you value free speech, and oppose Chinese authoritarian rule, I implore you to boycott Blizzard. Don’t buy Hearthstone packs, give up on World of Warcraft (normal and classic) and stop playing their games altogether. This is disgusting behavior by an American company. https://t.co/cVLcxFrJ9D

Gamers Unhappy with WOW Classic Developers?
Interestingly, Blizzard, the company that develops World of Warcraft Classic, has gotten some flak from the gaming community over pulling over a popular gamer from an esports tournament because of certain comments he made about the Hong Kong protests. Gamers say that his pro-democracy stance was his own opinion and that Blizzard is trying to curb free speech by doing so!
