It was only about a month ago, Nostalrius and vanilla servers was the topic raging in every corner of social media only to disappear to some unsightly corner of the internet and peoples minds. Did Blizzard drag this whole 'meeting' thing out long enough for us to stop giving a shit and find something else to focus and complain about while this topic quietly sank to the icy depths of the fucksgiven ocean? Who knows.
Nostalrius have already had their meeting with Blizzard and are flying home; they said they had fun and the news was good. Now when they say that do they mean they had a great time being shown around on campus and then told all the reasons blizzard isn't going to release a pure vanilla server? Who knows maybe.
I'm not an advocate for either side of this debate. Would I like to see legacy expansion servers? Sure that would be neat. Are there technical and logical issues to take into consideration when doing this? Definitely. Would I go to the floor kicking and screaming if Blizzard had denied us these legacy servers? I'd like to think I wouldn't and I'd like to make it clear This thread is not about the creation of vanilla servers, it is a question of just how much people take this topic to heart.
I tend to see a Nostalrius thread maybe here and there, usually the old ones from a month or two ago being bumped by the lone soul. It seems like a subject that was over talked about to the point where the thought of it just exhausted people. The multiple threads, polls, youtube videos, petitions all the waiting around for a meeting to occur and a straight answer. But we all know Blizzard are good at ducking and dodging like a trained fighter, I mean c'mon, Abbysal Maw raid, Farahlon etc. Announced and buried as quickly as a one direction album.
So just your thoughts and opinions, do you think this subject was purposefully dragged out to dispatch interest? was this just another bandwagon? do you still consider this to be a major high priority topic for Blizzard to address?
