We probably had one of the more entertaining realm forums. People from all over would come to visit! Wildhammer would come to make fites.

Doubt it's any more dead than any other server. WoW's a dinosaur, what do you expect? 7 years. Long time for a game to still be The game to beat.

I just wish all of Shawni's and Jiesus' posts would still be in that Phoenix vs Loatheb, Thad and Heigen thread. It's also missing the Exo vs Crimson AQ scepter post.

also id say paid server transfers are to blame for the death of any sort of community greymane and its forums once had. whats the point of flaming someone no one knows because he just transferred here last week, and will probably transfer off before he would read it anyways

I'd agree with that. But also, it felt like part of the community died when they opened up bgs for cross server queues. When it was just greymane vs greymane you got to know people from the other side pretty well, even developed those funny relationships with people you just -had- to kill first, like an arch nemesis or something.

That, above all else, made a server seem like a community. There was always that chance you'd see familiar alliance/horde faces in world pvp and either /salute each other or froth at the mouth and try to gank one another.

I agree completely. Other thank drunken 22 token Kara runs at the end of BC, I think Vanilla AV was probably the most fun I ever had in this game, because you would always recognize 2/3 of the people there, like this:

which in turn would lead to situations like this:

lol dorf

Also yes, cross-server BGs were the beginning. I was leveling my hunter through BGs with 9 others, we'd usually win, but that fell apart once crossrealm BGs came in, and we all lost contact with each other.

Jesus I miss Greymane. First server I started on back when I was just a young child, so many good memories.
