    Classic World of Warcraft Discussion [Megathread]

    [MOD SNIP], the largest Vanilla private server, has been shut down.

    EDIT: Thank you all for contributing, both those for and against [MOD SNIP] and those for and against Legacy servers. For those interested, please sign the petition below:

    At the time of this edit, over 200k have shown their support for legacy servers. Let's make it 300k!


    MOD EDIT

    As of today, 4/27/2016, we've decided to forward all new classic server discussion to this thread. Anyone wanting to discuss the idea of classic servers, how they can be implemented, what is cool about classic, your memories of classic, [MOD SNIP], and the like will post here.

    MOD EDIT #2

    DONT NAME PRIVATE SERVERS.

    Well, that's what happens when you steal intellectual property and use it

    God damn it! I had JUST found out about the server and made an account a couple days ago!

    Why can't blizzard just make a Vanilla server and be done with it?! I don't give a rat's ass if it will ''split up the community'' I just wanna play Vanilla!

    Really though, I'm surprised it didn't happen sooner.

    That's the price people pay for taking someone's intellectual property and use it. They should know better and Vanilla for the love of the cosmos...was not as great as you think it is.

    I wonder how many would play if those servers would cost 10$ each month...

    Someone stole from Blizzard, and they got punished. I'm pretty sure this is an open-and-shut case. Sorry you liked their service, but then, I like raw milk cheese, and the border guards disagree. Guess which one of us wins?

    if a private server isn't making any money off of it, it seems like a shitty thing to close it down like that.

    must be butthurt that less and less people actually want the real thing.

    Now it's hoping someone else brave enough can take over the hosting, because they seem to be releasing all their data and how they did it.

    Honestly at this point Blizz should bring back old servers

    they didn't even make any money

    goes to show Blizzard can't stand it that a lot of folks hate their current version of the game and would much rather play an old version even if it means getting no new content ever

    And nothing of value was lost.

    I can understand it but it sucks, played there since December.
    Nothing for me even remotely enjoyable about Legion.

    RIP the fun Vanilla adventures and rip 14 years of nearly constant playing.

    Steal? How is it stealing?

    They're not taking money for anything, how is this any different than Fair use?

    Well if you were playing there because you don't care for the current game, you probably wouldn't be playing Legion anyway
    Do I really look like a guy with a plan?

    Good hopefully they hammer them with lawsuits even though they shut down. They were stealing others should be deterred from doing the same.

    Great, now perhaps the Nostalrius people can stop going around acting as if they've got something figured out that us "plebs playing Live!" will never know.
    That moment when you realize that MMO-Champion is home to a significant amount of people feeling depressed by being involved with World of Warcraft and Blizzard products in general. Yet they stick around and continue paying for said products... o.O

    Nice work by Blizzard!

    All P-Servers should be closed asap.
