I'll take that any day, instead of being able to insta dungeon through the LFD with random people who never talk to each other. Plus running to the dungeons meant a lot of world PvP happened around instances. I cannot say how long I would play on an official Vanilla server. But I would definitely resub on day 1 for such a server. MoP, however, I have ZERO interest in resubbing for.

I will agree that the insta dungeon deal has shit on things a bit.. I mean, for a casual gamer like me, it's cool to get in quickly, but I do agree that the social aspect has suffered. I would want a happy medium I suppose. I was part of a really great guild of friends in Vanilla... when we could all get together, it was awesome. When we couldn't... it was a nitemare.

You do realize that you can still create your own groups and run dungeons and chit chat with your party just like in the old days right? Nothing is stopping you. You can even use the LFD tool while in your pre-made group to receive the VP/gold rewards.

 

Not eveyone is a socal butterfly like yourself and have a bunch of friends playing WoW. For them, the LFD tool is the only way they can enjoy doing dungeons because EVERYONE is a stranger to them. Why would you want to take that away from them?

You havent played at all wow back at vanilla did u?

I played right when it came out. It was incredibly boring, and way WAY too easy/casual. 

It's only gotten worse with time.

Not everyone is as awesome and hardcore as yourself. You need to give developers some slack and allow them to create a game that is not aimed at the most awesome .0000001% of the MMO population that you represent.

A friend and I leveled in the original wow through dungeons only and got pick up members along the way. We did no quest and had a blast. You are exagerating on how hard it was to find groups, we leveled really fast without dungeon finder.

Very clever.

 

I would also like an Official vanilla server but like others have said it wouldn't be worth the time or the money. It would be nice to go down memory lane and experience what WoW was when it was still an mmo.

why bother with official, youcould be playing on  a private server in 30mins that has far better communities than official (people playing because they love it, and no gear peer pressure to rush to end game)  they even have better scripted events, i.e on 1 server everone was turned into a random fish :)

You're not making any sense.

If you hated it back then, I'm assuming you stopped playing back then as well? So....if that's true, why are you posting here? The OP is obviously asking his question to people that loved Vanilla WoW and hate it's current state?

You must not know who DavisFlight is yet.  His hatred for WoW knows no bounds.  Even in threads that have nothing to do with WoW, he will find a way to start bashing WoW.  Its probably unhealthy to carry that much rage for a game for so long..but then again this is mmorpg.com and it is probably the most finicky demographic in the world.

Who would want to play an MMO that would never change, never have new content?

Thats why we have Console games.

I probably wouldn't play a Vanilla server unless if it was a progressive one that had the original patch release cycle, mainly because I have been playing Vanilla a lot lately elsewhere, but a TBC server would  be what I would gladly welcome. But the TBC server, too, should probably go through the expansion's own patch release cycle, because especially after patch 2.4 the game loses a lot of important stuff such as attunements which I want to see.

Why not have a server for every expansion? Blizzard has a paid migration service nowdays, so you could transfer to next expansion whenever you wish.

I really miss the original WoW and TBC, the current WoW is not even half a game compared to the old one. I too have some recent experience, so forget the rose-tinted glasses ;)

Of course, the best solution would be to redesign WotLK, Cata and MoP and tune them like the older game was, but i doubt we'll ever see that to happen, at least by Blizzard.

Well, I love Vanilla and early TBC WoW, unlikely the present one, and I'd love to see Blizzard making new servers for each expansion. But I know it wont happen until WoW will come to end, you know why?

It's pretty simple, not because Blizzard doesn't see any benefits from that, actually, many players form private servers would come back to original servers! But the thing is that Blizzard would have to admit, that THEY FAILED. They failed in building up the game, in simple - new expansions suck, and are step back from the old days. And, in my opinion, that's why Blizz will not make any Vanilla/TBC servers until the very last months of game. 

But we can always hope that just before their "project Titan" will launch, we will be given the opportunity to play on the old days servers made by Blizzard. And I really DO HOPE it will come to us one day.

Honestly as much as I love Vanilla I think it would get very boring really quick unless they updated new content for lvl 60 characters and still that is pushing it.

I believe vannila WoW was a product of it's time. It made sense back then. I don't think it would compare today though. Fond memories are often established by the good times.. but there were lots of bad as well in vanilla WoW.

My first MMO was Asheron's Call. I often think that vanilla AC would be awesome again. I thought the same about AC2.. but we got AC2 again and I thought it was horrible.

I just think a lot of people would get a shock if they played vannila WoW now. There would literally be nothing to do. I mean, what did you do in V WoW that was different to current WoW? You ran dungeons and did raids.. and there was a lot less choice. The questing was worse back then, no set pieces, npcs that joined you or vechicle to get into. It was literally just kill, goto and collect in vanilla. I know the new questing is just a fancy way of doing those things anyway, but it still makes it a bit less monotonous. The world PvP was a bit better back then.. but that option is still there in the current WoW.. it's just the players that are choosing not to do it. If two guilds planned it and decided to do open world guild PvP warfare, they can. It hasn't gone away.

It's like... when you are older you look back at when you were at school and think "Wow, we sure had fun when we were younger". But the reality of our school days was a mixure of awesome times and terrible times. When we were at school, it wasn't really anywhere near as good as we remember it to be. We just miss the carefree attitude we had back then and I think the same thing applies here. When we played vannila WoW we didn't care as much, or know as much, about the specfics, or the possibilities, of MMOs so we remember it from a very different PoV than our current PoV; as the good old days. Now that we know more, and have experienced more, I doubt we would be able to mirror the same experience we had back then because 'we' have changed as well.

A better option would be to take the old Vanilla WoW and continue evolve the game while not taking the same path they did. Evolve in the same style it was created in in the first place. No fast leveling, no quest objectives shown on the map, no conveniences everywhere. But WITH new content, updated graphics etc.

We don't nescessary want the old Vanilla game, we want a better WoW in the same spirit as in Vanilla. They started taking wrong decisious somewhere in the past, I can't put my finger on when, I would even say TBC was starting to go wrong.

Exactly, it does get you banned around here for what ever reason. Anyway, people like us are a group Blizzard could actually make quite a bit of money from.
