    Question If Blizzard made Vanilla/TBC servers - would you play on them?

    Let's imagine that Blizzard made some Vanilla or TBC servers. Would you play on them or would you stick to the latest content?

    EDIT: I'm not asking if Blizzard would make those servers. I'm asking if you would play on them.

    No. And they're never going to make them.

    No, with no new content it would get extremely boring doing the same things over and over again. For me personally I cleared all the raids while they were current content so farming them to infinity would be mind numbing.

    Nostalgia is what it is for a reason. Revisiting it only makes you realize it wasn't as great as you thought it was (in retrospect).

    No and the people ask for these servers would play then once then stop soon after.

    Players who never played vanilla will almost guaranteed pick No, while players who did play vanilla will most probably select yes.

    Gods no, Don't get me wrong I played in TBC and loved it, but not because of the game, the game was pretty bad back then. I loved it because the PEOPLE who played and who I played with back then were so much nicer and because I had so much more time to commit to doing nothing but playing WoW. If I'm gunna have to deal with the kind of people who play the game nowadays I at least want to be able to roundhouse kick things in the head on my monk while I do it, then queue for 5 mins and do a couple of wings of LFR.

    If they released Vanilla servers it wouldn't be long before they'd have to be patched to BC and then WotLK. I MIGHT consider player from day 0 again if they decided to do this, the big problem though is the game has changed so much I'm not sure they have the ability to effectively run a 2nd Gen WoW server along side their current xpac servers.

    i would play on a wrath server. but the only thing i would do on these would be looking at the old world for a bit. vanilla and bc are a time i don't ever want to go back to.

    Most likely. Granted, considering there would never be new content, there's only so much you could do. Completely gear up one of each class, and then you just stagnate. And that's the problem - people would play them, hell, probably for quite a while, but then the lack of things to do would drive them back to regular servers. As someone who never got to raid in BC, I would probably stick around for quite a while, but not forever. And what's the point in supporting a server that turns into a ghost town mere months after its creation?

    For an additional sub: No.

    For kicks every now and again: Sure!

    And that was answered quite clearly:

    If you ask for opinions you should allow people to elaborate them as well.

    Frankly, it's an idea that's only pros stem from romantic nostalgia; no sane person would like to return to those days. Aside from the fact that the greatest parts of WoW's today community constantly states how they can't even be bothered investing the time and ressources required to play those parts of the game that were once the only content available, even if such servers would be put up people would soon see what a drag Vanilla / TBC was compared to today and simply lose interest. That time is better invested in the actual game. Current content is what always and only mattered in WoW, that's the way is was designed and there is no going back.

    There are too many design flaws in your game. As a result, your customers' game experience may be degraded. Fire or replace the failing developers if you don't want to see this message again.

    I would still be playing the latest expansions because that's were the new content is. Sure, I would probably start a char on the vanilla/tbc server, but I probably wouldn't play on it that much, since I've already seen everything and killed everything there is to kill in vanilla/tbc.

    What people fail to realize is that going back to vanilla/tbc now is not the same thing as playing it for the first time. You already know how to clear every HC dungeon effectively, you know how to clear every raid instance etc. You would be finished with all the content in no time, at least I would be since I and the majority of players I play with have raided since vanilla.

    Because this fucking thread has been made thousands of times - why didn't you search for one just like it and post in there that you agree?

    I didn't vote because the option "no, I'm never paying blizzard money again" wasn't there. Honestly, I'm having more fun playing on the --SNIP-- private server than I have since I first started playing in 2006. Can't say I'm burned out because I quit subbing for wow, the direction the game has gone is the problem.

    Don't name and discuss a private server here
