WoW Classic players are bringing order to chaotic launch quests the second time around

Experienced World of Warcraft players have returned with the new classic edition and are doing things a bit different this time around. 

Instead of chaotically launching quest, killing NPCs and obtaining items, players have taken it amongst themselves to do things right, albeit much slower. Players have manually formed orderly queue lines to keep things peaceful. 

The results have been humorous, yet praised by many. Especially at a time where video games have been under fire from politicians for influencing violent actions such as mass shootings.

Over on Twitter, many users have screen grabbed the lines and quipped about how waiting in line to kill a quest mob is the difference between gaming in your teens and gaming in your 30s.

“In Classic we stand in line waiting for our chance to kill the quest NPC,” wrote dl_sifira. 

“Let´s Do It The Right Way :D Build A Line,” said Yakubsan1.

On Reddit, an amazing image of a group of people lined up to kill the quest mob is approaching 80K upvotes. “Imagine being a killable NPC and seeing a whole ass line of people wanting to kill you,” a player in the meme said.

Users are impressed by the display of civility too. A Twitch clip of Razaroth reacting to the orderly lines has been viewed nearly 70,000 times. 

“Look at this shit, this is classic right here,” he said. “And they’re waiting too… they’re waiting for the dude to get it. Do you see this? Watch, everyone moves up. Can you believe it? This is the best thing I’ve ever seen.” 

With the servers absolutely loaded with players, it will be fun to watch how the lines continue and when they’ll eventually subside. 

WoW Classic is available now.
