I don't believe in idealizations. You get vanishing boats and griffons back, broken charge and vanish, stuck-while-gathering, melee hunters, useless warlocks and druids, no Alliance shamans or Horde paladins, a freaking enormous list of QoL updates reverted--you take the bad along with the good, or you get nothing.

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

Best alternative is to turn off exp when you hit level 60 and find a few WoW Vanilla guilds who only play vanilla content, it's what I do and it's fun. :)

I probably wouldn't play on them.  Been there, done that.  I've liked all the expansions.  People need to take off thier rose-colored glasses.  Vanilla had alot of things that weren't that great.  Just like people will bash a game today if it has a horrible launch, however, WoW had a ton of problems for the first month after launch.  I remember buying the game at midnight, logging in to find out that I could only play like 5 mintues maybe before I got disconnected lol.  I think the only thing Blizzard should do with Vanilla is to bring back a 40 man raid.  I truly miss those epic fights.

2/27/13 12:14:34 PM#24

just my idea, may be will never work, but why not make WoW separate games,
same way as GW1 made it, instate of update whole content for each x-pack.

after it can be figures out how to do better: separate servers or just zones etc.

I mean why not let people play what they are asking for?

I can see more success from opened realms with specific: vanilla, TBC, etc teamed realms.

not sure if anyone else like this idea tho.

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

Casual indeed it was, easy...check, linear....pretty much yeah, hand holding?  Not near as much as it is NOW. Anti-social? That was not MY experience with Vanilla WoW at ALL. It was far more social than it is today. Today if you don't have a guild, don't expect to talk with anyone at all.

Exactly my thoughts. To be completely fair there was a bunch of ex-EQ players that did constant qq about newcomers to the genre but that would be all real anti-social things going on there. Other than that totally different title.

And WoW back then wasn't really so casual even using casuality standards back then. 6-8 weeks to reach cap then weeks to get SOME gear, full T1 set wasn't cheap, same field marshal (actually level 60 PvP sets were not for most even in TBC).

I loved the original WoW but I wouldn't play it now. Why? Because I know everything about it now so it will get boring fast. Also knowing that there will never be new content. So no vanilla server wouldn't work for more than 1-2 months tops.

Mission in life: Vanquish all MMORPG.com trolls - especially TESO, WOW and GW2 trolls.

That wouldn't work for EVERYTHING we used to do in Vanilla.  The large raids on Stormwind and Ironforge (and Darnassus) would be impossible at level 60 and those were so so much fun back then.  I'm afraid that Vanilla WoW is just gone. It's a thing of the past that many of us will always look back on with fond memories, but they will remain.....memories. That time simply cannot be recaptured.

I would pay $4.99 a month for a maintained server. In fact, I might even pay the full retail subscription if there were enough folks involved to bring back the "good old days". :)

Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

Well there are other ways, we just can't discuss them here! o.O

"it's an event of the century if you even meet opposing faction people of your own server  *sob*"


lately saw an alliance quester help out horde in dire need when getting whipped by a group of mods, exhange /hug and continue questing in the same area....in STV.

i'd resub in a heartbeat to that crappy game with the gazillion bugs.

Everyone knows the game had bugs but i'd love to play the game for about a year clear all the content including 40m naxx and call it a day for good. I'd love it really.

Call me crazy but classic WoW was awesome and i know so from recent experience *tips hat*

How many people do you think would actually play after they reached 60 and there was nothing left to do? Consider, also, that the only people who would play it are the people that have already played it.

 

I am 61 yrs old and I would play it.

It doesn't need to be vanilla WoW, just the philosophy of the game, up to Ulduar. I don't care what bads do, it's up to them. Early WotLK was plenty easy, but didn't destroy the roots of the game.

The dev's current trick (5.2) is to try to lock the "TARDget audience" of baddies, into no LFR; until weeks after normal raiders get to see wings of the new raid.

/popcorn

I give it a week, until they nerf that.

i would only play if they upgraded the graphics to something like Rift. Vanilla WoW was great in many aspects but graphics were pretty horrible, when compared with today's games.

The graphics were pretty bad by 2004 standards too. Still are. And gameplay has always been abysmal.

Well, if with "vanilla" the final version before BC is meant, then there was a lot to do with level 60. MC, BWL, Nax, AQ20, AQ40, ZG and PvP.

 

Still, I probably wouldn't play. The old version had a lot going for it that the new one didn't, but I also played the old version a lot, so there wouldn't be a lot to see. Not to mention that one thing that motivated people a lot early on was to be in areas where most people haven't been. Like, when your guild advances in AQ40, and you get some new equipment that only one or two other people have on the server. And you can tell stories like "Viscidus? Yeah, we have beaten him yesterday. You haven't been there? Ah, he is huge. No, larger!" and tell more stories of the like. Or just the moment when you moved forward, and saw a huge boss nearly nobody else had seen before.

But now? Everyone has run through the old dungeons solo or in small groups. There is nothing left to discover.

Let's play Fallen Earth (blind, 300 episodes)

Let's play Guild Wars 2 (blind, 45 episodes)

I wouldn't. I really think a lot of you are looking back more foundly then you should... I'm not down for getting groups together for 45 mins, running all the way there and having some bastard drop out.. or drop out while in a dungeon and ruin the whole deal lol.

Oh get over yourself. Stuck while looting/gathering wasnt vanilla. It was a 1 or 2 week issue. How do any of those shallow complaints not mirror complaints made today about every mmo. Ffs.
