[Suggestion] Bring back the Night!
I think this is all not true. I have screenshots from 2004 taken at night and it looked exactly the same as it does now, lit but a bright fullmoon.For the most part WoW's night was a blue filter. So everything was still just as bright as the day time, just with a blue tinge and different skybox, but it never really got dark without modifying the client in some way. Just look at the pics provided in the EU thread, it's still bright as day.
Someone has yet to show me a single screen shot demonstrating this darker night. I am now going to sort through the thread to see if I overlooked anything other than the doctored images people post of Orgimmar and Stormwind someone made to show what WOW "could" look like.
Does anyone have a screenshot of the darker night?
I do agree with this sentiment though, there should be a night cycle.
I imagine it was removed due to the changes they've made to lighting and various other effects bogging down the many, many toasters that people run this game on.

Poster above me, I disagree there was def night. As a matter of fact riding up to org at night it was dark only the areas around the bonfires/torches cast light.
There was a certain fun/mystery added into the game when things got dark. It made questing in highly-forrested areas or just darker/creepier zones all that more immersing and fun. The perpetual daylight thing is lame. Oh, the sky says it's night but the ground is still like it's high noon...hmmmmm
BRING BACK THE NIGHT!!!!
