The polling sample, though it is small and not completely reflective of the entire populous, shows 3:1 against playing if they turned WoW into "Classic" WoW (which is pretty much what was described in the OP). Blizzard has said on more than one occasion there is no place for a classic style realm and nostalgia, though very powerful, should never be used as a measuring stick for a business model. People who want this would play for a day and then realize one thing:
They have access to TWO continents, 8 races (with limited classes), and no way to get around other than on a ground mount, a flight path, or a boat. No thanks. We have that now. It's called Pandaria lvl 85-89.
I loved TBC. It was likely my favorite expansion. But, if they scrapped it all and went back to that model, I would unsub faster than they could remove the option to cancel my sub.
This threads not really proving any points.
The games evolved since then, but we're in a state where we can both choose new features and remove others. The opportunity exists to make the game better.
Anybody asking for a carbon copy TBC realm hasn't put thought into what it was like, and what they'd miss from the game in its current state.
Also I'm going to pop up a chart now since its been 24 hours, for the most part, thank you to most of you for actually reading the post instead of scanning, and contributing, also I should of edited last night, not dailies removed, daily cap reinstated to 25 with less dailies available, my bad, no idea why I just put removed, also someone mentioned the list is unrelated to each other, technically its not, but its my fault for just dashing them down I should of constructed it better on word then pasted it over
Yeah I would gladly play if those features were lost. I understand why people like most of those things, many of them I like too but some of the old stuff contributed to the immersion in the game for me. I feel like the game tries to rush you off your feet with quick conveniences, without leaving much thought to the "world" of warcraft.
Removal of LFD and LFR would kill it for me. I play on a pretty dead server, where it would be damn near impossible to organize groups of random people even for 5-man content. I would actually quit playing if they removed those, because short of transferring, there'd be nothing for me to do.
I do kinda like some of the ideas in that list though. I'd be pretty happy if they removed CRZ and brought back some of the class-specific quests (warlock minions, class mounts, etc). I'm fine with world PvP happening on a PvP server, but I think CRZ took it from one extreme to the other. It would be nice if questing in Hellfire Peninsula were possible again (without requiring me to log over to my level 90 every minute or have an army of level 90 friends to guard me).
I just thought the class-specific quests were fun and gave classes a little more identity. I really enjoyed the warrior Cyclonian/Fray Island quests and the warlock minions/epic mount quests.

You had me at CRZ and dailies being removed.

No. Games have to advance, WoW would most likely be under the loop with other MMOs then. Maybe if they found another way.

Why is it such a big deal that someone else likes something you no longer enjoy?
Stop harassing a person who doesn't have the same interests as you. He wants 3 accounts for a game you associate with trash. That's simply what he wants.
Things I would like to see would be:
LFR & LFD removed
Updated character models
15 man raid setting
Hard modes incorporated into the boss fights; Ulduar style
No flying in Azeroth, except in the Cataclysm zones
Higher honor and raid token cap

I come from a time and a place where I judge people by the content of their character; I don't give a damn if you are tall or short; gay or straight; Jew or Gentile; White, Black, Brown or Green; Conservative or Liberal.
I would still play, but a hell of a lot less; I would probably unsub and just pay for time with game cards whenever I wanted to blast things with lightning. It'd devolve pretty quickly into nothing but solo farming for me.
I would quit and play the cata and wotlk arena tournament realms. Questing is mindless no leveling while doing bgs would kill it for me.
You're right except for 2 things.
1. My name is spelt "God" not "Loucious-sama".
2. I'm not a man, because man is inherently flawed. I am in fact a being so far beyond your comprehension that archaic constraints like flesh, blood, time and consequently, gender, have no meaning to me.
