    And what would they gain through that, except pissing off a customer ?

Also not very benevolent, as a lot of the times the Nost players would constantly spout off about Nost on forums like MMO-C, using it as "evidence" in support of legacy servers regardless of Blizzards response, which inevitably led to Nost being shut down.
    You could say that their constant prattling on about their PS server put them in the Blizzard crosshairs.. My thinking is if they had stayed silent then attention may not have been drawn to them as fast as it was.. And in a sense they dug their own graves so to speak..

    Yes, some people like you don't understand the purpose laws serve in a functioning society. Do you apply this same kind of thinking to other laws you find personally inconvenient?

    Dick move would be if they sued them for the subs they had. Nost was nice enough to brag about thier sub totals 800k registered and 150k active. What if they wanted the sub dollars for 150k times 15 dollars a month? That be dickish but within their rights.

    If a legacy server is that important to people put your money were your mouth is, start a kickstarter and get people to donate to it, show blizzard financially that it is the right move, do it every month and e-mail the end results to blizzard diretcly with a "this is how much you would be getting"... money speaks louder than anything else

    But it was. Regardless of legal issues. If it's about business it's a dick move.

    One can be a dick without intending to be a dick. The result speaks for itself.

    True. But then the thing is, it works just the same about the empty claims that "people only play 'cause it's free" and the like. So if you doubt one, you should also doubt the other.

    But not a dick move to set up and run an illegal private server?
    Do you always talk out of both sides of your mouth?

    People protecting their legal rights are dicks? I guess you have just a touch of special entitlement there.

    What's especially obnoxious about you all in this is that the product you want to have pirated, WoW, wouldn't even exist without the legal regime that grants those rights you want violated. You are a rank hypocrite.

    It's not even a move. People were just having fun, harming no one.

    Your correct, but we only have one option to go by right now, why I suggested a kickstarter a few posts ago, would show everyone just how much a legacy server is wanted when money has to be given over.

    Well, is name & avatar are Garak. Garak never told the straight truth and had a lot of doubletalk, maybe this guy's the same way.

    Very mature. See how mature I'm being now?

    Oh wait... aren't you from Russkieland? Now it all makes sense.

    You have no idea whether it was harming anyone or not. IP theft (as Private servers are IP theft) can and does hurt people.
