    No vanilla servers, never

    "Have you ever thought about adding servers for previous expansions"

    "No."

    Best news we've had all day

    Why would they.

    If you want old servers then play on private or something.

    this has been known for ages, blizzards stance has always been a solid No on it.
    Too cool for a signature

    There are some pretty decent private realms out there.

    Confirmed to replace the reforge vendor on the yak.

    I mean they did say that years ago, and have been saying that. Maybe since they said it at Blizzcon people will listen, and not go home and make another thread about it.

    Part of me is happy they aren't looking back to it, another part of me would like to see peoples' reactions once they find out the "glory days" weren't as glorious as they remembered them to be.

    Okay, it was very good for what it was back then, I was mind blown going into it, but Vanilla had some design elements which would be frowned upon by today's standards, like the intentional spec imbalance, no choices whatsoever, tedious grinding for reputation and resistance gear, etc. It was fun back then, but it's not something that'd be enjoyed by the majority today.

    Excuse me, are you saying something? Nah, you can't tell me nothing

    So your happy that they arent adding something a lot of people would find enjoyable?

    What does that make you as a person.

    And yeah, they can do whatever, if I want to play it theres a million private servers.

    Now we wait for the inevitable butthurt fanboy to cry havoc and opening up a petition.

    Devoting unneeded time and resources to something a very, very small chunk of people would find enjoyable for more than 2 months.

    Yeah, I'm pretty happy they're not doing that.

    Good news! Now vanilla servers are as unlikely as neutral races, pve->pvp transfers, and faction changes!
    Since 9/11 the NSA has spent at least $70,000,000,000 while lying about their own effectiveness. Even if we sweep aside the extensive lawbreaking, ethical problems, economic damage, and abuse of power, the fact remains that the NSA makes us all less secure, running useless mass surveillance, with a handful of successes in other questionably legal programs.

    Well about 98% of the people who say they want old servers never actually played back then. Or it's rose tinted glasses.

    This, I guess the OPs sad reaction sums up the vanilla haters on these forums quite well.

    Private servers say otherwise. But hey! If were going down that path of "logic" I guess pet battles and HC raiding should be removed from the game!

    And about 87% of posters are pink elephants.

    (see I can make up abitrary figures and baseless comparisons too)

    Vanilla isn't "hated."

    Vanilla IS done and over with.

    Deal with it.

    You have any numbers on how many people use private servers?

    Didn't think so.

    Except your statistics are probably about the same number of people who wouldn't like old servers. Rose tinted glasses son.

    I'll be very much impressed if there is a single private server out there that can handle the stress of what EU-Draenor/Stormscale/Lightning's Blade gets thrown at them on a daily basis. But this is not the place to discuss that.
