Nostalrius was closed after the threat of legal action by Blizzard on 10/4/2016, with 150,000 active members. About Nostalrius close things still have been fermenting.
What's the next plan? The players want to know where to go, a petition asking Blizzard to cooperate with Nostalrius and support vanilla servers has gathered over 102,000 signatures.
The voice from BBC “Many who commented on the closure acknowledged the fact that running servers such as Nostalrius was technically illegal, but said Blizzard should support non-profit fan-driven projects to keep the game going”.
The team behind Nostalrius posted: "We never saw our community as a threat for Blizzard. It sounds more like a transverse place where players can continue to enjoy old World of Warcraft's games no longer available.
Until now, BBC noted that it attempted to contact Blizzard, but the studio had yet to respond.
