After the release of the pre-patch for WoW: Burning Crusade Classic, TBC Classic Gold players had surprisingly found that it was suddenly possible to open up groups with players from other servers, to communicate with each other and to register for battlefields together. Is this a new feature or just a bug?
With the pre-patch of WoW: Burning Crusade Classic, the developers at Blizzard have shaken up the basic structure of the game. Suddenly there are progressive WoW Classic servers with the contents of TBC and also the classic era servers, some of which were connected to one another due to the low number of players. In addition, the developers have reactivated layering on the TBC servers.
This change not only caused quite a mess of add-ons in the first few days (for example because the new "Burning Crusade Classic" was not automatically recognized by the Curse client and the WoW Classic versions of the modifications were still suggested), it also happened strange observations. For example, players reported that it was suddenly possible to open groups with players from other servers, to communicate with each other and to register for battlefields together (via Wowhead).
Is this a new feature or just a bug? This point did not appear in the "Not a Bug List" or in the list of known problems of the pre-patch. Fortunately, Community Manager Kaivax commented on the subject last night:
Yes, there is a bug in TBC Classic that makes it possible to team up with players from other servers. The developers are currently working on a hotfix. Cross-realm groups are not wanted.
As soon as the hotfix goes live, we will of course keep you up to date here on buffed. Now you can buy WoW Classic TBC Gold to prepare for WoW Classic TBC.
