Episode #21 – Legacy Servers

In June, Blizzard shut down the Nostalrius legacy servers. In November, Nostalrius decided they’d waited long enough and decided to come back in a big way.

Nostalrius’ announcement: http://forum.nostalrius.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=44550

“The source code will be first given to an existing Legacy project which we believe to be the most in line with our core values, named Elysium. This server shares the volunteer spirit and passion for the game we had. Furthermore, an important part of Nostalrius volunteers are already working there, some under different names. We wish them all the best, and hope that they will become a new home for the reunited Vanilla community. We will continue collaborating closely with them. This collaboration could include additional “things” to share with them if necessary to achieve this goal. In exchange, this server promised to not receive any profit from this activity. They will also have to create the documentation required to install, understand and use the work we did. “

After that, Viper says, they will release the source code to the public.
