    Don't misunderstand, I want the option for it put back into game like weather effects. I would not blindly accept the change otherwise.

    Always make sure to link this picture for what I know WoW can do. This is from the start of Cata, but was made with the WoW machinima tool. It was done with skybox and lighting settings that are already present in-game.
    Wow I don't even really like Orgrimmar that much but that looks incredible. Totally on board for bringing back night time.

    People have been complaining about making the night darker since 2004.
    I like the idea, but I also liked the way the world looked lit by a full moon.
    The funny thing is, I've heard people complaining about the night so long I thought people were mistaken that there was a change. It seemed an issue of people "hearing" it was changed from other people and they started mis remembering. But now I've finally seen a series of photos that show the older night effect, and while it was subtle, it was better, and I want it back.

    When was this changed?

    I wonder how easy of a fix it could be as well, with how delicately tweaked the lighting is in multiple areas in every single zone to look a certain way, it would be nice if this is a universal setting they can tweak. If it ends up with them having to go through every single zone to re-balance the look of the lighting, I don't think it's going to happen.

    I'm kinda on board with this line of thinking. Maybe I'd like to turn on night mode every now and then. I don't want 80% of my play time to be in total darkness. That would just be depressing.

    Ohh my gosh, yes! Those memories...

    Would be cool if there were some Q that could be done only during night/day.
    Or pets catchable only during some time periods. And many more.

    They already have this I thought, with certain pets only able to be caught during certain weather patterns as well.

    Indeed, like sandstorm in tanaris for the Scarab, or snowstorm in Storm Peaks for the Arctic Fox Kit.

    I didn't realize that but yeah, way back when night used to be night. Now it's just day lighting with a night time skybox. Man I wish they'd bring that back.

    Do want the night time darkness back.

    Never understood people who didn't.

    Okay, so you can only play in the middle of the night? Fine. But why would you want to play in some weird, immersion-breaking, boring, ugly pseudo-night like we currently have?

    The night has so much potential in a game. All the changing lights, the shadows, the noises, the starry skies, the change of music, the creatures changing their behaviour, etc. I really don't see why more developers don't use it, or at least provide players with an option for it. Every RPG is always considered ten times better simply for emphasising these things.
    "Good morning!" said Bilbo, and he meant it. The sun was shining, and the grass was very green. But Gandalf looked at him from under long bushy eyebrows that stuck out farther than the brim of his shady hat.

    It really wasn't that much darker though. Tons of people made threads going back to the first year of release asking for actual dark nights complaining that it looked only slightly darker, which surprised me that Blizzard made it even brighter and I really want to know when they did it because I never noticed it until someone pointed it out to me. I always assumed this was just carried over from those old threads and people were just wrong about the night being darker in vanilla.

    Duskwood in Alpha wow almost made you require a torch to see by, and you can still find isolated areas in the game that are super dim, like the cemetery area in Duskwood or the burning vineyard by Northshire Abbey. I would like to see it that dark myself in places, but I also liked the old full moon effect.

    I don't understand, there is already a Day-Night shift within wow. Either that only happens to me, or I'm just missing something. I'm very sure when I login at night , there is night ingame as well, and viceversa in the morning.
    If you want darker nights, just set up brightness / saturation / color / quality and so on, for your needs.

    Unless Blizzard are shooting for arctic realism, I'm pretty sure the ratio of night and day would be 50/50. Whether opting for real time or accelerated time, there's still only so much nighttime during a 24-hour period.

    Okay. I thought I was crazy. I remember seeing "night time" long ago... and in more recent memory, it seemed to vanish. Somehow I thought that was something I did to remove it. I would like the night time back. I am all for it.

    The change at the moment is so subtle that really the only difference is the skybox having stars come out, while the land itself looks lit by almost the same light as the sun, there is a subtle shift in color, but it used to be more noticeable and looked more dim in places. This is what it used to look like.

    If you read all the replies in the EU and US forum threads, you'll realize you are not alone in that assumption. A hell of a lot of people didn't realize at the time and seeing the comparative screenshots it suddenly dawned on them that it was changed too much.

    Oh hell yes. I like it when it is actually dark, when nighttime changes something rather than being a decorative change to blueish lighting instead of yellowish. I rememeber the Witcher 1 - when you descended into some cave or crypt, it was actually pitch black dark and you had to either use a torch, light things up with spells or drink the catseye elixir.
