    So basically this is a poll showing players who either:

    a) Realise that when the rose-tinted glasses are taken off, there are a lot of issues with the game in its former states, and though its far from perfect now it's still the best it's ever been.

    b) Were OP in a previous expansion/patch and want the fun times back.

    It would seem there are a lot of a)'s voting, so good for you for not falling for all the nostalgia fueled exaggeration and imagined-glory days.

    Doesn't seem like the percentile reflected on this poll justifies a large enough minority for this to go ahead with.

    What's wrong with the private Vanilla servers people are currently playing on now, btw?

    Mainly the little bugs and the incorrect tuning of raidbosses and not being sure the private realm is going to keep exsisting in the future.

    ......yeah because just because you cannot see the fun in it it's not fun right? Did you even log a vanilla realm lately or are you just throwing stuff out there?

    its a good concept on paper, but in reality its not the same experience as progressing on content when its fresh. the game has changed so much they would either need to host the actual patch from the time period (which would take loads of time to get right) or just create a new patch specifically to host that content. either way its a lot of work for a very small amount of demand. very dedicated private servers like this exist for vanilla and tbc which already provide this service for free basically, so there would be little incentive for people to pay blizzard to provide the service unless they were able to support it well.

    mainly the people wanting a legacy realm are people who never really experienced or exhausted the content when it was relevant and want to go back and beat it in a legitimate environment, theres nothing wrong with that. the exclusivity of content created interest in the content, something which could only be obtained through a good guild and skilled players. thats something which doesnt exist anymore really, and its why nobody will be clamoring for a cata realm or mop realm in the future, theres very very little content that is exclusive to the hardcore players.

    I think this is a good reason for not playing on private servers. All of the AI had to be rewritten by the Private Server's programmers and from what I hear can range quite a bit. Blizzard has done an excellent job with their mob/boss AI and it isn't something one normally thinks about until they don't see it anymore. It's not to say all of them are bad and some of the servers are aiming for mobs to act as 'skilled' as possible so it's very interesting.

    I think that from the poll results, there is definitely one thing you're able to see: these type of server would have a consistent server population as there would be people who only play there and then those who are curious/feeling nostalgic for temporary play. I'm still sticking with that even though this kind of server would be quite interesting, it would lead to more work done by Blizzard. This could come in the form of them doing friendly bug fixes for the servers, having to dedicate a new forum to this feature and/or physically maintaining the server (which is very minimal as they are doing this for low pop servers as well). Even if they left it completely alone, they're going to have to manage the forum complaints/bug reports as not everyone is going to understand/accept that.

    I'm curious though - how do people want these to work? My guess is server has last patch of each xpac and then you just play that forever? After you beat the game, do you continue playing? When these were live, some of these patches lasted up to 13 months and there was quite a bit of complaints/sub loss on the forum because of it. Do they start over? If so, wouldn't that upset the people to lose all of their work? *boggled*
