    Lets see it that way: Blizzard didn't get your money when you played on a private server (that used intellectual property of somebody else) and now they are not getting your money anyhow.

    This warranted a topic? You raging about not being able to play on something pirated where you didn't pay anyone anyhow? Too bad you will never see how sad you are.

    It was already getting shut down. Hell people were actually donating so $$ was involved. They're stealing the IP and making a server of their own. It's not allowed. Also your example of the Metal Gear HD remake is sooooo different it's bad.


    Still good enough to have a loyal player base that want vanilla exclusive servers.

    In their minds maybe, doesn't mean it actually is better. Aint legal either(Making a private server that is).

    That is certainly true for a large portion. Many will opt to go to other private servers even though it is a race against the clock simply cos Vanilla/TBC is what they want to play contrary to the latest expansions on live.

    Private servers are illegal, of course Blizzard would shut it down.

    Honestly your comment sounds like " I don't like it so you shouldn't like it either."

    While it doesn't affect me in any way as I don't play in any private server, nor have any interest in playing an outdated version - it's obvious some people did.

    And since it's not a matter of 'stealing' as it wasn't a direct competition, nor were they getting a profit out of the deal... I'm going to have to side with the "Blizzard did it cuz butthurt that people rather play an older, stale version than the Live version".

    You gonna play the live version and enjoy their vision, gosh darn it!

    Not one of us wants to play WoW in its current form. We believe WoW's present incarnation is so much changes so as not to be WoW at all.

    Just wanting to clarify that Blizzard won't get our subs back. I stopped playing retail 2 years ago or so and will never re-sub.
    I wouldn't go to the OTHER two big servers out there, FYI. Been reporting those as well.

    May just want to look at another game. I heard WildStar is hardcore.

    Pretty much. I mean, I still sub to live and have done for over a year of not really logging in at all (I think maybe 4 times total). It's isn't the money that's really the issue, Nostalrius was a fun MMO, live/retail is some arcade single-player oddity of sitting in queues playing farmville. More interesting is what Paula Deen wrote above tho.

    I normally distance myself from congratulating Blizzard for anything.
    However with this, I must say good job! I hope they find more and bring them down.
    People need to move on, or change Blizzard's mind on the classic server issue. Until then, if it's illegal in anyway
    shut that obsolete crap down!

    The community will carry on the work those fine people did.

    Though for all the shitposting that people do of the "wall of no." - Eventually Blizzard will cave and make their own legacy servers. The lies about not having the code are silly, and obviously lies. Anyone with half a brain knows that. "Never." in Blizzard-speak just means "Eventually when we can turn a profit on the idea." (See server transfers, transfers to PvP realms from PvE realms, faction swaps, cash shops, etc. All of those were "Nevers." at one point.)

    And on that day which Blizzard does cave, and they will, mark my words, I'll pay them whatever they want for the ability to play on the legacy servers. Whether it's a one time fee for access in addition to the sub fee (Like the arena tournament realm.) - Or however they do it. We can clearly see that Blizzard can turn a profit on legacy servers. Look at the number of active users that one server had, and realize there are countless more out there. Oh well, I don't think it will be too long before Blizzard caves, retail WoW is getting pretty barren.

    We can talk about intellectual property all we want, but the only thing shutting down private servers does is hurt Blizzard. It leaves the people on those servers with a bad taste in their mouth in regards to Blizzard, and makes them less likely to play future Blizzard games. It does NOT in any way make them want to sub to WoW.

    I believe that the game today, or at least in the MoP era, was a much better experience overall for the average player. That said, I personally enjoyed Vanilla, BC, and WLK more than anything that came after. In that order. It's not about whether or not Vanilla was better than game now, obviously there have been a lot of QoL improvements to the game, and it's been more opened up to casuals, BUT that doesn't mean that we didn't enjoy the game more in times past, shitty as it may have been in some regards.

    Everyone that I know that played in these private servers played anywhere from about a week to a month. I think the idea of playing in a vanilla server is more compelling than ACTUALLY playing in a vanilla server.

    On the plus side for the violators, I don't think operating a private server triggers the provisions of US criminal copyright law that would subject them to felony prosecution.

    Source, cause if true I am sure the bash Blizzard brigade will not read your post and continue to place blame where it doesn't belong
    Ideally no one has ever hit the level cap of the last expansion, looked at their dungeon blues, and thought "I win."

    Except the current incarnation of WoW is not the same as Vanilla. Hence why people play on private servers.

    2) Unrack
    3) Crank out 15 reps

    I also stand by my statement that people played Nost because it was bug free not Vanilla. Private Servers are shit and no one codes them they just get emulated. It isn't a loyal fanbase for Vanilla, it isn't lazy BRs and Cyka Blyats. Its people who want free WoW without bugs. These people aren't gonna play Live if Nost goes down, these people are gonna bitch and moan about a Sub Fee they don't have to pay, except for once, anymore.

    also strange when bliz told that they were fine with pservers , so long they were non profitable and now shutting 1 down that is non profitable ...
