    No vanilla servers, never

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

    "No."

    Best news we've had all day

    Nope, we're getting vanilla servers on the yak.

    Why would they.

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

    There are some pretty decent private realms out there.

    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.

    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!
    "In today’s America, conservatives who actually want to conserve are as rare as liberals who actually want to liberate. The once-significant language of an earlier era has had the meaning sucked right out of it, the better to serve as camouflage for a kleptocratic feeding frenzy in which both establishment parties participate with equal abandon" (Taking a break from the criminal, incompetent liars at the NSA, to bring you the above political observation, from The Archdruid Report.)

    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.

    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.

    Every time someone uses the term "rose tinted glasses" you know you've already won, as that is all they have in that limited repertoire. No use even talking with them, limited capacity for any meaningful dialogue is just not there.

    Vanilla no thanks but TBC/WotLK? Yeah, why the hell not. Considering most competitive PvP play is at 3.3.5. They could easily populate a server to full.

    Why no Vanilla? Outside of raiding it was pretty much inbalanced, terrible itemization and class system (seriously palas were useless as well as enhance shammies).

    Once you get to realization of beating classic what was all that time wasted for? You'll relive the game for maybe a year at max, during that time in which they could have spent coding NEW content. It's a waste of coding, the story has already been told.

    There's no point in experiencing the bugs/problems associated with the past. It's best to keep moving forward.
