Nighttime in WoW

Hey everyone,
So for a good bit of time i've been sitting at my computer trying to find old screenshots of WoW at night, photoshopped screenshots of WoW at night, and the such.
I really do believe that legitimate, dark nighttime in the game would add so much immersion to it. Especially Orgrimmar, talk about daytime with stars.
It's just so dang cool!
This one screenshot struck me in particular(posted by Thalian@Gundrak):

So I'm curious,
Would you like it if our ingame nighttime was like this?
Why or why not?
Feel free to share any screenies you may have. :)

Edit: Alegos@Ravencrest brought my attention to a little place in EPL that beautifully displays what nighttime in the entirety of this game should look like
Here's what nighttime looks like now:

And here's what it should look like:

Blizzard has indeed recently greatly improved the nighttime atmosphere in Orgrimmar. It's not tooooooooo dark, but it most definitely does not look like blazing daytime there during the late hours anymore! Thanks Blizzard- keep it up. A little letdown was when traveling out to Durotar, the irritating brightness did return, stars in the sky and all. But again, awesome job on Org.

Originally it was planned that duskwood would be so dark that you literally could not see in front of you. They even planned to make a woodworking profession to make torches to see in the gloom.

In the end they couldn't do it because of the technical limitations at the time as well as a few other reasons, but I always wish they did.

I love bright/dark cycles in games and would love a truly dark Azeroth to pieces.

So yeah, this has my vote.

I'd love the see it more like that screenshot. It just doesn't seem that dark at nighttime any more. It would really add to the feel of the world I think.

Blizzard make this happen at some point please.

I miss night time in the Hinterlands. The was an enchanting experience and the stealthed wolves attacking you was always a surprise. Seeing the moonlight hit the enemy moonkins was it eerie!

I really want a dark nighttime! I realized how fun dark nights are in games when I first started playing Minecraft. The darkness in Minecraft is wayy darker than in WoW, and it just adds to the fun and adventure, particularly the sense of danger.

I know some people might only play when it's night out and might not appreciate never being able to see well, so maybe make it an option.

I would love to have very dark nights (in all areas of the game) as well as normal days. Liked and upvoted, OP. There was a thread that was highly rated about night / day with other screenshots but I can't find it right now.

Thats awesome. Give us the night!

Edit: I also wish we had more weather effects like snow-blind, dense rain, etc.

I'd be alright with this.
A toggle switch of sorts to make nighttime the way it is now, or reaaaally dark and immersive.

That first image is beautiful! I would LOVE the game to have truly dark nights like this, it would add so much to the atmosphere, and it would also make campfires useful again, as well as show off the improved fire animations on anything else that burns in this game.

That toggle switch is a great idea, I hadn't thought of that. They let us choose our water effects, letting us choose our nighttime effects couldn't be much different from that, could it?

((If it is, tech-heads, please let me know, so I can admit to being a technical idiot. Oh, wait, I
just did!))

There was a thread that had multiple images of a darkened Azeroth....maybe do a search to see if you can locate it? And yes, I'm all with you about having an actual night-time in Azeroth!!
