Frozen Throne is a completely fresh take on Wrath of the Lich King. Through many years, we have worked on many servers, but we couldn't spread our wings, as the lack of vision of those above, limited us. Now, free and refreshed, we are here to bring the true spirit of World of Warcraft to everyone, everywhere.
Frozen Throne is not just a server. Frozen Throne is a vision, it is something we wanted since we joined our first private server. A vision to offer unmatched quality. A vision to bring the most memorable game of our times - World of Warcraft - back to its roots, where it all began for most of us, with Arthas. A vision to bring the much-deserved glory back to the Arthas, the Lich King himself.
On Frozen Throne we will focus on quality. Every single quest in the game is going to be reviewed. Every single thing in the game is going to be double-checked. Every single dungeon or raid encounter is going to be completely rewritten, from the ground up, to make sure it's flawless. This is something new for Wrath of the Lich King servers. The spirit.
We are tailoring the ultimate, groundbreaking Wrath of the Lich King experience. Learn more below and ascend the Frozen Throne with us.
The server releases when it's done.
Q: Who are you?
A: Sitowsky is a co-founder of Sunwell that helped to tailor the player experience and complex systems the server is using until now. He is a developer of great knowledge that has over 10 years of WoW emulator experience. Radeghost was co-founder of once the most popular Angrathar realm, he was also a Community Manager, Game Master, Facebook editor, voice actor, and copywriter under the name of Dredd. They are not alone - with them, come two developers and we there is room for more.
Q: Why do you want to run a WotLK server?
A: Because of our love for Wrath of the Lich King. We consider it the best expansion and the last expansion to follow Warcraft 3 story. We also want to offer the true quality of Wrath of the Lich King - something you have never seen before, as existing realms rather focus on monetizing and undermining each other.
Q: How will you compete with the other projects?
A: We don't want to. We want to offer you the best quality imaginable on private servers, we will hire the best support and developers we can get. We will run ads and we will sponsor content creators. We will offer real transparency with public Game Master logs. What other projects are doing is their business.
Q: How are you going to ensure that quality you boast about?
A: We are very dedicated to making our dream come true. First, we are going to have the beta in waves. Each wave will have a level cap to ensure all the quests are being completed and all the issues are being reported. We are going to have a PvP-only wave, dungeon-only wave, etc. We have the measures and abilities to fix every single issue there is. For us, Wrath of the Lich King is the best World of Warcraft expansion, and we will honor it as one.
Q: What about the experience rate?
A: All the rates are going to be x1. After the soft-release, the level cap will be set at 70. Once all things are ready, our Wrath of the Lich King release will open up Northrend for all the players, to emulate the retail experience.
Q: Who pays for that?
A: At this moment, we are. We plan to open the donations to keep growing - we need funds to pay the staff, developers, and to pay for marketing. Frozen Throne will be a community-funded project, with a shop that will offer no real advantage against other players. We need to be straightforward and honest about this, so here it is. Also, a part of all our donations will be given to a charity - more info about that will be revealed once the server is up and running.
Q: When is the open beta of WotLK realm and what of Northscape?
A: This is the “new” Northscape. We have decided to delay the beta. The announcement is coming soon.
