    Why IS WoW's night time so bright? There's no difference between night and day.

    Why did they do this?

    They don't need to make it frigging pitch black and require lanterns or anything.. but really.. it's pretty lame. Something that's bothered me for the past 9 1/2 years with this game.

    There are several threads about this topic. There doesn't seem to be a fix in the works for day/night in Azeroth, though night in Draenor seems pretty decent.

    They did this because some people only play at night and it was too dark.

    it hasnt been 9½ years since the change. but yah recoloring the sky to black yet leaving all the lights on, doesnt really help with my immersion.

    their intent in the change was noble, but in true Blizzard fashion they went to the extreme opposite end, rather than finding an acceptable middle ground. now we only have perma daytime.

    Apparently it has something to do with shadows. They tried making nights dark again but the way shadows worked everything went pitch black. They're working on it.

    Can only go so far with it without impacting gameplay though. For example, I play mostly at nights during the week, so I don't want it to be more difficult to see where I'm going or see mobs or see other players or anything like that, otherwise its going to severely impact mine (and many people's) enjoyment of the game. Game needs to be just as easy to play and just as easy to see what you're doing at night as it does during the day, so that limits how dark you can really make it.

    To be honest, I quite like being able to see where I'm going.

    Oh, there are? I don't see any. I also did a quick search and couldn't find any recent ones. Just because someone made a thread about it sometime ago, does not mean it can never be discussed again in the future.

    Yeah you're taking up valuable space that could be used to cram in yet more WoD flying threads.

    We all know that we have some very mature, thoughtful posters here on MMO-Champion.

    That said, OP, you'll find that there are a lot of people out there who want darker nights and I think they intend to fiddle with it a bit for Draenor since the "fix" in the Siege of Orgrimmar patch didn't do much (it was noted that they tried to darken Orgrimmar and Stormwind at night a bit but it didn't do anything really)

    To this day one of the only things I take away from FFXIV was how great the game looked at night - I remember Coerthas Highlands (snowy zone) looked amazing at night and it was kind of cool how your field of vision was a little bit lessened.

    Reason is that some people play during the night time (server wise) and don't get to play during the day. Making the game just as bright as day time was made so that players could actually play rather than squinting all the time.

    It's because kids are afraid of the dark. Sad, but true.

    I don't believe this is the actual reason although it sort of makes sense. Blizzard has acknowledged that it is a problem, just hasn't addressed it.

    stop spreading this stupid rumor

    it was a purely artistic decision, nothing else, had something to do with their new shadows if I remember correctly
