    I can't believe some people legit thought Nostalrius wouldn't end up being shut down by Blizzard. We already went through this before in TBC/WOTLK with that WoWScape server fiasco that ended with the owner being sued for 88 million. If a private server gets too big and too loud - it will be dealt with, it doesn't matter if you make petitions, donations or riot on social media. I loved Vanilla and want classic servers as much as you, but if the company that made it all doesn't want it to happen - it won't, it just ends up being a waste of your own time in the end... When I listed "Blizzard can shut it down at any point so why waste my time" as my top reason for not playing Nostalrius for longer than a few hours, people called me an idiot for even thinking they can do it... well guess who ended up being right?

    I'm embarrassed to read some of the comments on here from the bitter blizzard brown nosers.
    Leave woltlk kids alone, they are so dumb they don't even know what a true mmorpg is, i interacted with more ppl in 15 days on nost than in 4 years of live wow, dungeons were fun because classes are not godmode and i died countless times from 1 to 36 (and i was mythic raider before wod), it's been a wonderful time machine while it lasted...

    Please look up what 'fair use' actually means before you comment any further on this. Simply put, they don't have any sort of legal permission to create a private WoW server and it was always an inevitability. The truth of the matter is things like this have to be protected when it comes to copyright, or they lose their validity.

    Exactly.

    They have to tell us at every turn just how inferior Retail is and how "no one with good taste could enjoy live" and all that other horseshit, and they're surprised when people aren't crying for them when they bite the dust?

    I don't feel sorry for the people claiming to be smarter because they've figured out how to not pay for other forms of entertainment when said entertainment dies (Popcorn Time for example) either...

    I do feel for the Nost players that helt their heads down and just enjoyed the server though, and I'm all for retail offering a legacy server to reel in those people that truly want Classic as their one and only form of WoW.
    I am very rarely active on MMO-C atm, as I've said whenever being called a "fanboy/girl", when I'm not happy with Blizzard's product, I'll actually move away from it and withhold my spending as a sign of my dislike. Funny how X posters don't seem capable of doing the same.

    I don't like nostalgia threads, but I do have a lot of good memories of Vanilla. Hence why I participate.

    It's not because Blizzard gives a damn about breaking the rules. It's because Nostalrius threatened Blizzard despite not making any money. That's the sad and pathetic part right there. Blizzard basically just admitted that a vanilla community threatened its profits while turning around and saying that people don't actually want old servers.

    Scum.

The fact that most of you don't understand what is legal and not legal about reverse engineering is testament to society in general.
    Yeah... except for the fact that emulators require client dbc data to operate.

    Well I will not be joining everyone in legion. This was a move by Blizzard to get people from when the game used to actually feel like an MMO to their piece of shit game they have now. Fuck I am angry.
    Yeh, how dare they control their IP. People like you...need to grow the fuck up.

    There's a couple that approach it, including one in particular Nos had something of a friendly rivalry with, but overall, no. It was a double-edged sword; on one hand the massive community made leveling up less of a pain in the ass than it tends to be on smaller servers with the average level creeping ever upward. On the other, it also became too big to succeed, both in terms of needing donations to keep the lights on and to avoid Blizzard's hammer.

    rofl you call us freeloaders but i still have a sub to WoW even though im not playing it much right now, seriously its ironic you saying "sad" when the only sad thing here is you wanting to ruin other peoples fun, if nost had a sub or were trying to make a profit off their pserver id say fuck them but they didnt and its seriously pathetic you sit here insulting people for wanting to play what they find fun

    It's like people couldn't keep their mouth shut about their precious vanilla server, and made enough noise, and got Blizzard's attention... It's almost like they have themselves and their supporters to blame for the position they are now in.

    I actually started playing live servers thanks to private servers (WoWScape) so this is kind of sad in my opinion. Can't believe some people are actually happy about lots of players literally losing their fun, how much of a smug can some people be? I HOPE someone will host new servers in Croatia or something, and totally shit on the copyright.

    Also what the fuck is the deal on calling these players freeloaders? You think you're entitled cause you pay $15 subs or expansions?
