Blizzard released a “not a bug” list for World of Warcraft Classic, after beta testers kept sending in reports for what were actually features for the MMORPG back in 2006. The original World of Warcraft was released in 2004, and World of Warcraft Classic aims to recreate the state of the MMORPG before its first expansion, The Burning Crusade, was rolled out in January 2007. Previously, players looking for a “vanilla” version of the game were only able to experience it on custom servers such as Nostalrius, which Blizzard shut down in 2016 to protect its intellectual property.
According to a post on Blizzard’s forums by the company’s community manager, developers have been getting a lot of emails about bugs that actually feature. They go on to list some things that players assume are bugs but are actually working as intended. WoW Classic is aiming to recreate the experience of World of Warcraft in the months after it launched. If you were playing then, you may remember that it wasn’t always the smoothest experience.

In response to these false bug reports, Blizzard has released a “not-a-bug list.” This list contains about dozen different things that aren’t broken or wrong, but working exactly how Blizzard wants them too.
World of Warcraft Classic is currently in the beta testing phase and it is expected that issues are sure to arise ahead of the full launch. Indeed, players are already reporting a number of bugs that have been affecting their gameplay. One alleged bug, for example, has players saying that the spawn rates of creatures appears to be lower. Then there are Tauren hitboxes.
Blizzard says all those kinks are here to stay. The eventual plan for WoW Classic is to have the game update on a regular schedule to replicate the release of patches and expansions during WoW’s pioneer days. It’s unclear how closely the developer will mimic bugs being patched out (and in) when these updates were first released.
