World of Warcraft Fans Purchase Legacy Hardware

World of Warcraft Fans Purchase Legacy Hardware

Posted time: Sep 13,2017

World of Warcraft has a lot of merchandise related to the game - shirts, hoodies, Funko Pops, statues and more other items. But some really enthusiastic fans have taken a big step, and purchased the actual hardware that hosting the World of Warcraft servers.

The server blade has special messages that are burned in it. “To us, this server blade is more than just hardware: within the circuits and hard drive, a world of magic, adventure, and friendship thrived. From fishing in quiet lakes to defeating Arthas in Icecrown Citadel, this blade was home to thousands of immersive experiences. We thank you for the safekeeping of this important part of our history.”

While these can be easily handled by recycling e-waste, Blizzard chooses to auction them off for charity to benefit the St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. Approximately 300 server blades were auctioned off to the public. It is said that the prices of these blades have reached thousands of dollars. In contrast, one of the modern server blades can run up to $ 15,000.

The fans opened their wallet - and hearts - about their in-game experience. 
Fans have opened their wallets—and hearts—about their in-game experience. “Some of my most memorable moments in my life was playing World of Warcraft with my friends. From discovering the game at the start to downing bosses and getting our server firsts and feeling that rush of excitement. I have built life-long real life friends that started out as virtual relationships through this game,” says Chris, a 31-year-old fan who purchased one of the server blades. “Knowing that I am holding a very important part of what made that type of experience possible for many thousands of people does have some sort of gravity.”

“I just wanted to own a part of World of Warcraft,” said Alex, a 23-year-old fan from the United Kingdom who purchased one of the server blades. “I think I am the person I am today because of that game.”
