LOL.... so true, your last sentence. That's the way I've always played, as well. I used to insist on wearing a cloth robe when Gwynne was level 10-ish. Wanted to look pretty like the mages and priests. My husband would just smile and shake his head at me (he was leveling a rogue back then). Later as started understanding the game more I realized the cloth on a pally, no matter how lovely, wasn't the most appropriate. I still collect non-plate, nice lookin' stuff, bank it, and wear it once in a while, just not into battle :P

Regarding the inconvenience and the odd stats and the way some classes played back then (healing on Gwynnevere in Vanilla... sometimes I wanted to pull my hair out lol), was a big part of the charm of Vanilla. It did help make the environment more real, for me, too.

When I was successful healing on my pally in a dungeon or raid, it made me feel so awesome, because it could be awkward and nerve-wracking and I had to be more creative. Made it much more rewarding that today's WoW. There are many aspects of Legion that I do appreciate, but I really do miss Vanilla.


It was fantastic when popping some of the bizarre spells or mechanics allowed you to scrape your way to a win... I remember one time we were down to the last few HP of some boss and one of the pallies had put up the mana-return thing on the mob and I was WANDING IT for mana I was so low, but that gave me just enough mana to get ONE spell off to kill it while everyone else was dead all around me.

Everyone was like OMG! THE HEALER KILLED IT YOU GO WHOOO

And I was like 'eeeeee WHAT WAS THAT'

Lol. Or Mind Controlling things off bridges in instances only to have them come back training the entire instance behind them. I did that ONCE. ONCE. In BRD.

BRD. The instance larger than Stormwind.

Never again. But I laughed when the entire instance came back and poured onto the party like a river of dark iron anger. |D

Enter key =/= space bar. Try again LOL.


No.You derided me for not putting a space in iq.
This is because you don't need one.Conveniently overlooked by you,but not for the first time.
By the way,with all your lolling you're doing,is that a medical condition or will therapy cure that?


BREAKING: Laughing now deemed a medical condition. More at 11.
I won't pay for retail for the time being unless they release legacy.


And if they dont release legacy? You'll go running to an illegal server.

Right you're the kind of customer Blizzard needs.

Not.

The pictures posted prove that I will pay for retail


The pictures prove that you are no longer a subbed customer..and mate lemme clue you in on something...your slurs on my age notwithstanding, let me quietly remind you that Bllzzard isnt obliged to give you a THING.,..you arent a paying customer anymore. Are you?

Exactly my point! You stated that I would not pay for retail and legacy, correct? My picture shows that I paid for a vast amount of extra services they provide, but the bare minimum would be a sub fee. What makes you think I wouldn't use some of that money used on extra stuff and use it for a legacy subscription? Destroyed, once again.

I'm a paying customer until my subscription runs out in 9 days, but obviously you are too blind to see that.

How are they ignoring it? They literally just gave you an update. They don't know. They're busy producing other content for you to enjoy, but instead you're just complaining.


Telling folks there's nothing for WoW players at Blizzcon and nothing about Legacy is pretty much telling us why bother wasting time with Blizzcon at all if you aren't an Overwatch/Hearstone player instead of a WoW player.

I see it fine.

In 9 days you vanish. You are taking your bat and ball away because Blizzard wont give you legacy servers.

And as an adjunct to that, as Blizzard wont give you what you want., you will go running to a illegal pirate server on the premise that as they wont give you what you want, thats ample justification for others to steal it.

Moral equivalency at its most hypocritical.
It's clearly time for Blizzard to terminate any accounts of people that support legacy servers, as they're all dirty pirates anyways.

OR, OR, maybe people are leaving because its a bad game in their opinion. Many people fall for the hype and come back to a new expansion expecting what they disliked to be fixed. Legion might have the WoW name on it, but it's not WoW any more. WoW died when wrath ended.

I don't understand why you are so extremely butthurt about people not liking the current state of the game. Let me explain it to you. If I don't like the current game I'm not going to play it. I, along with many others, am begging Blizzard to let me give them my money. All that's being asked in return is that the game be put back to its original state that got me (and others) hooked in the first place.

Seriously, you're arguing that if private servers didn't exist everyone on those servers would be playing retail. You couldn't be more wrong.

Also, if a service is no longer being offered, and someone rebuilds that service from the ground up using "parts" that you don't use anymore, is it really stealing?
If someone is running a Legion server than absolutely 100% that is stealing because the service is being offered in that state currently. Apparently you can't see the difference between the 2 scenarios.

Keep yelling and beating your "illegal server" drum though. You baited me into replying, I'm sure you'll get some others too.

The fact that he's pretty much saying my voice doesn't matter because I'm going to a private server because Blizzard isn't providing me with a service that I want to pay for anymore is hilarious. Maybe if Blizzard got their heads out of their !@# and released legacy servers, people wouldn't have to unsub and play private servers. Either way I'm going to play past expansions any time I want and if Blizzard was smart, they would announce legacy and get their subs back up to the peak we saw during wrath, or perhaps more than that.

Yes, those assets and intellectual property do not belong to you.

Do you honestly think that is possible, I mean seriously, just from adding legacy you really think that? I am asking honestly I am not asking to be a jerk.
...

And honestly, this is exactly the kind of forum warrior thinking that has lead to a bunch of unwanted changes in this game that the vast majority disliked. Were you anti-flying too?

Removing content that provides convenience and quality of life improvements to a game as vast as WoW is ultimately going to turn people off to the game. Appealing to dissenters of efficiency drags any mass produced product down.

Of course I'm anti flying.


You are either the absolute biggest masochist or the biggest troll I've probably ever seen post on this forum. I'm leaning towards the later.
+1 for Legacy! :)

Just the thought of escorting the lost young Night Elf Female with the ringing bell in Feralas and meeting up with her friend, the giant tree, gives me the chills. I can't wait.

It's been shown that anything past WotlK has always seen a huge drop in subs. The game sees a new expansion, subs jump a little bit and then they fall. This is seen in cata, mop, wod and if the trend continues, we'll see the same thing happen with legion in the coming months. Cata, MoP, and WoD all had huge changes in their patches and that's when the gameplay got stale and boring. Many can argue that Legion has the same stale gameplay and I would agree with that.

It's just a matter of time before sub numbers go back down to WoD's lowest and possibly lower. People are already starting to quit again and it's only been a couple of months. Hell, even blizzard's stocks are falling after they made this announcement. I'm not some expert on stocks or anything but when stocks fall, the investors know that it isn't worth their money. That's saying a lot.

What do you mean change of heart? You want me be anti-legacy?

The game is over 12 years old at this point and the old numbers were an anomaly honestly and there is aloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooot more competition.

Nothing last forever sadly:O(

I don't think anything can make the subs stabilize that high ever again, it is fun to hope so though.

again not trying to be jerk here.
Will pay for legacy servers.

But I will not continue paying for legion.

I have appreciation for most of the upgraded graphics, some of the added dungeons/raids, and some of the battlegrounds/arenas.

Devastated that I missed the Nostalrius opportunity..

Correlation =/= causation.

Also... Legacy is bad, and the Nost team were pirates and thieves, and all its players were idiots. That is all.

Truth = Reality verbalized.
Legion might have the WoW name on it, but it's not WoW any more. WoW died when wrath ended.


Total and absolute twaddle..and opinion, Not fact.

I, along with many others, am begging Blizzard to let me give them my money. All that's being asked in return is that the game be put back to its original state that got me (and others) hooked in the first place.


And then kicking and screaming and making thread after thgread and unsubbing and using illegal servers because they wont give you want .

You asked, They said NO.

So you went to an illegal server...that had stolen the intellectual property of Blizzard, had and was using their content illegaly, Blizzard then shut that place down as they had every single right to.

Now here you are again, more kicking and whining, and you are making that absurd and absolutely hysterical equiivalency that if Blizzard wont give you what you want, it is perfectly acceptable and good to for oithers to steal it.

Maybe if Blizzard got their heads out of their !@# and released legacy servers, people wouldn't have to unsub and play private servers.


They dont have to give you a thing and quite frankly, if you condone software piracy and theft, I hope Blizzard permbans your account here so you cant come back.

Blizzard was smart, they would announce legacy and get their subs back up to the peak we saw during wrath, or perhaps more than that.


Give me what I want or Ill go play on an illegal pirate server that steals your art, music, intellectual property, writing and copyrighted content.

You wont give me what I demand so it is fine for others to go ahead and steal the art and work you have created over the past ten years.

THAT is your argument?
