About the Client

World of Warcraft cross-realm community is a group of like-minded adventure seekers who share their interests and passion for the game. United by the spirit of the game, the community is in constant search of ways to improve and enhance it while assisting with every character's progression.

Project Brief

The Fresh Lime Soft team has developed a hub where every member of the entire WoW community can discuss problems and future goals, share thoughts, grand schemes, and individual aspirations. Members can also suggest new features, gain inspiration, and access everything classic WoW has to offer.

Challenge

Our team had to tackle the following challenge: to create a website for all WoW community members that would enable streamlined and relaxed communication in a place where all game-related information could be shared. The idea behind the classicwow.live website was that it should both serve as a WoW encyclopedia and a community hub.

The Gear Planner was a separate challenge, as we had to design and develop the functionality that would allow choosing and trying on various character gear and comparing their characteristics.

Solution

Our Classic Gear Planner is the most complex tool of the hub and a key feature of the website. It contains an enormous database of all WoW characters, their gear options, apparel, levels, and skills. In Gear Planner, users can choose a character, their race and faction, class, specs, level, and phase, as well as compare the potential of each gear set.

Discovery

We had to create a place that would serve as the utmost source for Classic WoW content, tools, and community. Therefore, we had to find the best possible development approach and most suitable tech stack.

Frontend and Backend

The project had to be easily supported and allow a smooth implementation of any new features. We chose React.js for frontend development and Node.js + MySQL for backend, as these were the exact solutions to approach the existing tasks most efficiently.

Results

We've created a venue for communication between WoW players, a source of support, and a project that constantly evolves and changes.

  • The website serves as a community hub for WoW members, enabling access to all things WoW
  • The powerful Classic Gear Planner allows the community members to try on and compare game gears before they can enter the game and evaluate their current and future potential for combat
  • The community forum on the website allows all community members to communicate and share ideas about the game, socialize, forge fellowships, and meet others who made Azeroth their home.
