It is so funny that all of these threads want things to be removed from the game. Most of the things added are either QoL improvements or optional (you can still make a full group for dungeons, raids, ignore achievements, walk to every destination in the game, Not do dailies).
I think its actually useful when people suggest adding things. Such as class quests (I am not saying its a good suggestion, but its adding/re-introducting a feature to the game, not removing something that other players use). Why are people so adamant about wanting to control how other players play the game.
Remove players from the game replace them with bots and only have spectator mode
I'm gonna let 'em know that Dolemite is back on the scene! I'm gonna let 'em know that Dolemite is my name, and fuckin' up motherfuckers is my game!
I'd be all for removing exp from BGs, because I like to twink. (not that I like raping face, I'm actually terrible at PvP lol. I just like having 'BiS' gear at low levels.) But Blizzard has clearly stated that they want PvP to be a viable way to level, even though it really kind of isn't.
Many of those I can agree with, or at least tolerate, but I can see the reasons why they would never happen as well.
I'd be ok with some of these but not all:
LFD Removed - would be ok with removing max level LFD but not leveling
LFR Removed - would like that
Attunements return - only if they were guild/raid group based, too annoying to attune new people to BT etc
No more CRZ - fine
No more cross server invites / groups - fine
Specific Battle groups reintroduced - fine
Dailies Removed - I like them for vanity items but not essential rep/items
Raids only available in either ten or twenty five man sizes (15, 40 as well?) - yes as long as there were a lot of 25M
Raids only have one difficulty setting - if it was hard yes, easy no
Class quests are re introduced for class mounts, (but are prices match todays market)
Warlock Minion quests reintroduced
No ingame markers for quests
No EXP in battle grounds
No EXP for nodes (Mining Herb etc)
No random BG option
Keys to raids / dungeons reintroduced
The rest I wouldn't like at all
Most of the changes listed would make everyone pretty much have only one or two max-level toon.
I might still play it despite being an altoholic, but I must play the game with someone else to overcome such changes.
Lack of hi speed flying without being filthy rich is going to be painful too...
I can honestly say I played WoW (Vanilla) before they added all that crap you listed and it was honestly the most fun I had in an MMO at that point. Sure, I'd play it if it was like Vanilla again, where not everything was actually handed to you on a silver platter, where you actually had to work/play hard to accomplish something.
I'd be fine except for the flying mount changes, I would want them completely removed if we were going to overhaul the game like this.
Also I don't see how removing achievements accomplishes anything.

Seems to me like u want to play inside the stove while waiting for the dough to turn yellow brown...
Obviously u don't want to play... U just like to run around watching trees and chatting with the 39 raid members who are tired of waiting therefore telling blatant stories.
Change all the u to "they"
Way too many things on that list that have nothing to do with each other. While some of those features could be better or we could do with them being removed all of that would gut the game so much that way too many ppl would quit in outrage. With a mass exodus of players even if the game was great without the mass multiplayer part of mmo the game wouldn't be much fun.

People are misreading this... it's not a case of "I want this removed" or "A bunch of people think..." but rather a case of people crying out for the way things were in the past so Rotted (whom I actually remember from ingame years ago) simply posted what was in the game/wasn't back then and wants to see if you still desire it. People crying for a past game want what they feel was better plus their creature comforts... which simply didn't exist then.
So shoo, all you "your game sounds shit" people. Off with ye!
I'm all-in. In BC I never had problems finding a group, because I was in a non-fail guild that was filled with active, skilled players. The difference between BC and MoP is nowadays there is little or no reason to raise your game to get into a good guild, unless you want to do heroic raiding. There is no emphasis on players organizing themselves to achieve things that would otherwise be impossible. Instead, the game has become dumbed-down and simplified so that players with zero social & organizational skills can faceroll the content and continue their $15 monthly contribution. I never had a use for these players, and I never will...so if the game was changed to make it harder for these people to play the game, it wouldn't bother me in the least.
None of those things would have any impact on my main, the heirloom thing and bg levelling would be kinda crap.
Honestly, the only one of those that would bother me is the no random battleground. I am completely indifferent to anything that has to do with dungeons and raiding, or questing, and I would love if flying mounts were more restricted. I would rather they were gone entirely, but still, more restricted is an improvement besides the advantage to the rich.
Your list has stuff i want. Cross realm zones REMOVED!! Really fuck this ! I play on sylvanas, one of the most highest pop servers in the EU. Who i get crossed with ? OTHER HIGH POP REALMS! HOW IN GODS NAME AM I GOING TO GET TLPD OR AEONAXX NOW? Not saying it should be easy and be mine within seconds of afford, just saying i already have to do deal with my own population , why do i have to do deal with others to ? I did not choose to be on that realm or play with folks on that realm so why am i forced? Only enable CRZ with low pop realms or for low pop realms. Like 5x low pop realms , CRZ merged and POOOOOOOf they are high pops.
Class quest, yes yes yes yes please!!
