John Barnes, 25, from Sheffield, has been looking forward to World of Warcraft Classic since it was announced by Blizzard over a year ago. In that time, he has not only studiously prepared for Classic and the changes that it brings to the modern WoW experience, but he's also been limbering up for some frantic complaining. 

"I can't wait to jump on Reddit," says John enthusiastically. "I've already prepared a list of things I want to complain about." 

While most players should prepare themselves for just how different WoW Classic will be, certainly compared to what we currently play, John looks set to cash in on player expectation. 

"Folks are rolling into Classic thinking it's going to be an all singing, all dancing MMO. Let me tell you, that's bullshit. WoW was a mess at launch, and a true Classic experience will be miserable. I can't wait."

Prepare for the good, the bad, and the ugly, says John.

We asked John why he was not only looking forward to the game, but why he was so keen to moan about it. "Well, I love World of Warcraft, but part of the fun is hitting Reddit and getting it all off my chest. I can't wait to see the tears from players when they can't change specs on the fly."

What about specific classes and specs? "

Oh, God. Don't get me started. Just wait until I get started and complain about most of the classes not being viable in end-game raids or PvP. It's going to be amazing to watch folks panic about their class viability."

As John continued to rant about the woes of drinking after every pull, or being killed by a Moa 1 on 1 when you think you're invincible.
