Yet your pretending that everything is just great :)

 

 

I am surprised you even bothered to reply to this thread. But since you did,  how about the source of these millions you were talking about? a lot of people are curious about your claims. 

By the way he doesn't need to control these message boards. Things went out of control the moment you started pulling numbres out of thin air.

As far as stopping and asking random people in public what they think about WOW...hahaha..i mean that was really desperate and funny really. You love making up stuff don't you?  lol

Where the hell does that come from? When did i or do i 'control' this message board?

So what you are now saying is that the game as a whole is just a joke and no-one is allowed to have a pro-wow opinion as it is completely invalid because you say it is?

If you had bothered to actually read the majoroty of posts in this thread, which if you remember rightly was about whether a Vanilla server was a good idea as 'Millions' wanted it and not about the overall quality of the game, you will have found that there is a pretty anti-vanilla server lean on the whole. I as much as anyone loved the Vanilla days, i just don't think you can recapture that experience by just bringing in a Vanilla themed server.....another 'opnion' you would have picked up had you actually bothered to read the replies to your own thread.

If you just wanted to come on the boards and moan about wow, fine, job done. If you don't like other peoples opinions (especially players of the game itself) then don't post on the games forum. If it isn't the game you like anymore, fine, move on and leave it behind, that is the way life is i am afraid, things change, sometimes the way we like it, sometimes not, we just have to move on and find the next thing that fulfills that need and if you can't then you may need to talk to someone about that.

It must be Thursday, i never could get the hang of Thursdays.

Vanilla WoW was good because, at the time, it was original and we'd never seen it before. It just wouldn't be the same after all we've been through.

It's like the D3 issue. Everyone wanted it to be like D2.. but why arn't they playing D2 then? Because they probably tried it again and it's just shockingly bad compared to todays games. Memories are relative to the time they took place.

What exactly was original about it?

Love it when people say WOW was original. WOW stole more s**t from older mmorpg's than anything. Everyone says WOW clone this or WOW clone that, but they got their ideas from founding mmorpgs. WOW is a clone lol.

It had a huge IP to start with, a good company, during that time 40% more internet users, and was fantasy. Because WOW almost failed with its rocky launch.

Everything happened at the right time for WOW, now everyone tries to mimic it :/

Everything is a clone of Pong by your logic. Well done. WoW did tons of stuff that was never done in MMOs before. Visual skill trees being one example, basing an MMO on a well known IP from another genre being another... there are many more examples. It also felt and flowed completely differently to other MMOs. Saying WoW did nothing original is very naive.

Ummm sorry but Ultimate Online was the first to do that...just sayin.

p.s. Oh! And Final Fantasy XI was second.

And there was also Star Wars Galaxies, that came out in 2003 (WoW was in 2004)

Already done by previuos mmo's. Next? There isnt anything WOW has done another game of some type hasnt done. They may change the names, and concept but its all the same. Example:

First game to base their MMO on a well known IP................. and star wars isnt a well known IP? SWG is your answer.

And visual skill trees? WOW created this first? Are you sure? I would look that up if i were you. Its wrong.

 

Visual worlds date back 35-39 years being first created. D&D was actualy created in the same year (1974) and is what many mmorpgs are based from.. Persistant worlds date back to the mid 80's. Single player games were the first to introduce persistant worlds and many of the features you claim WOW and many other mmorpgs have today.

 

WoW developers even admitted to copying and changing things from the past long ago. I played WOW from release for awhile. Had nothing special and half the features that are "new" didnt come until much later.

I am also a "Vanilla" player and know what I enjoy is the fantasy of combat, not the reality.  I don't care for the shambling hordes of zombies, xenoforms or other animated monsters and monstrosities to be too realistic.  Heck, if I want to experience bloody spectacle, I can watch a movie (or even at times just the nightly news reports.)  Vanilla is equally a flavor and while I and others may also enjoy Chocolate or Strawberry, etc. I think that just as with film, it would behoove the gaming industry to cater to the range of experience and flavors people enjoy, rather than uselessly insisting that "one size fits all" - it don't!!  Conversely if a venue such as WoW doesn't not wish to provide a greater range of flavors; well, that's their call; however as a consumer and customer I might shop else where!

It would undermine their game in its current state.  It would almost be an admission that they have taken the game in the wrong direction or dumbed it down, or at least the press would treat it as such.  It would be a PR disaster.   

It would also risk losing revenue and activity from the those players who stick with it because it is wow, but never-the-less are underwhelmed by the direction it has taken.  An emptier world in their expansions is not good for business.  

 

 

This is the best explanation of why Blizzard would never do this that I have seen. Right on the money!

Exactly this.

That aside :p

I loved vanilla WoW, it was probably my best MMOG experience all around. But I'm not sure if I would play a vanilla only server again tbh.

The first time you do something it's fun and fresh, becauwe well... it's the first time. Every time after that, no matter how authentic the experience is reproduced, is repetition and therefore less exciting.

And talking repetition: vanilla had quite a lot of that as well. I definitely don't fancy doing something like the AQ reputation grind again, or the grind for resistance gear etc.

Feel free to use my referral link for SW:TOR if you want to test out the game. You'll get some special unlocks!

The things which would be most positive about a vanilla WoW would be the low numbers (mid 4 digit hitpoints), the talent trees, class quests and the old dungeons (e.g. black rock deeps, maraudon, uldaman, dire maul). I don't understand why Blizzard had to do such huge item resets with every add-on.

 

I often replay older single-player games. The issue with an MMO would be: Would there be enough players? The questing in MMOs is a boring chore. The small group content (5 or 10 man) was fun for me. Unfortunately you can't bring the old times back. But if you could bring back the same old groups of friends together that'd be fun.

game is also real

I think good idea is to make special servers:

- one for vanilla people and just restore 1st WoW there and nothing else.
- one for hardcore elite, with very challenging dungeons and raids.

may be some more of these special servers, so all guys who cry about missing hardness, vanilla, could find their home.

I guess it good idea to make different lvl of challenging for WoW players as guys who stay in game for like 5 years need to something harder then newcomer.

Hope Blizzard will take consideration of this idea and get more happy customers.

try before buy, even if it's a game to avoid bad surprises.
Worst surprises for me: Aion, GW2

Ok first of it is not like blizzard have a few floppy disks in a cabinet labeld WoW 1.0. So to make a  "true" classic server they would have to do a fair amount of reverse enginering. That cost money and developer time that could be spent on stuff like the next WoW expansion, Titan, the protoss expansion to SC2. Next chapter in the diablo saga... and so on and so forth.

 

Secondly there are as many opinions on what "vanilla" WoW is as there are people who want it. Who will get the right of way?

 

Third--- Here is blizzards reply


We are aware of the fact that some people prefer the old pre-expansion content over the newer content that has been added to the game with the last two expansions, but despite this we still have no plans for opening any classic realms at this point in time.

We also understand that some people would like to revel in nostalgia; however the developers are planning to keep the game moving forward as they want the game to continue to progress and evolve.

We regularly see requests for us to open classic pre-TBC realms, or vanilla realms if you prefer, and lately we have also seen requests for pre-WotLK realms and even pre-Cataclysm realms. We have answered requests like these before saying that we have no plans to open such realms, and this is very much still the case today.

We realize that some of you feel that World of Warcraft was more fun in the past than it is today, and we also know that some of you would like nothing more than to go back and play the game as it was back then. The developers however prefer to see the game continuously evolve and progress, and as such we have no plans to open classic realms or limited expansion content realms.

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

Nope sorry I don't live in the past.  When Vanilla WoW first came out I loved it because it was different, new and exciting but I could never go back to a tab target combat system, linear questing system and 2 faction PvP system.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!
