I would love a better night time, but its also has to be playable in.
Any improvement to the immersion is big yes!
I support this decision and think it would be great to see this put back into the game. That is all.
It can't be that hard to add a slider into options that let's you change how dark the nights are. Some people are scared of darkness, even in a game. Some people like pitch black nights and some just a little darker.
If I recall right, Duskwood was a pitch black zone in beta. You HAD to have a torch or you would get lost. That's so cool.
Blizzard has a very specific look for everything, they want you in the world of their art style, down to the shade of green you are wearing and the color of the sunlight on your face. They will never allow sliders for things, it would mess with the "hand crafted" styles they put so much effort into.
But a box you check, ah, that's different

Gah, that sounds beautiful, especially with the new lighting system. I love how it looks in the new Scholomance or Scarlet Monastary with that dim lighting, does anyone have screenshots of the actual world like that?
That's,... painful to know.

When I was a noob, I was questing in duskwood at night, and it still remains as one of the most fond memories ever because it was so immersive.
So yes realistic lighting would be welcoming
Pleaseyes, with the option to turn it off. It's all about *choice*
One thing you can do is if you're like me and play mostly at night anyway, lower the brightness/gamma settings. I've gotten decent results messing around with these settings and getting the night to look like night again. Unfortunately it can darken daytime a bit much. I bet someone can make an addon that automatically changes these settings for you.
Night time makes for atmosphere. The darkness actually adds warmth to the experience. So yes; I'm all for it.
If World of Warcraft has taught me anything, it's that teaching a crowd something is far harder than teaching individuals.
Everquest managed to do this in 1998, I dont see why WoW cant figure weather out.
Im totally for this~
Free-To-Play is the future.
WOuld love to see this happen, some real night time hunting or questing would be brilliant.
