Main City night phases

General Discussion
I miss these; what happened to them? Orgrimmar used to be such a badass place at night. Now, at night, you look up and see stars, but everything around you is light! Super boring.
What's everyone's feedback on this (people who've played before the night phase was *technically* removed.) idea?

(An amateurs attempt at photoshop to make orgrimmar look more.. nighty.)

I honestly think this would be an amazing addition in MOP.

Additional player / blue post feedback would be cool. I'd like to see what everyone else thinks about fixing the night phases.

its light pollution, blame the gobbos
I want darker nights. Not pitch black, but darker than what it currently is.

Only if it's an option you can turn on and off in the graphics options. When it gets to dark in game I find it very hard to see things and that makes the game hard to play and frustrating to me.

I love it, I suppose that 's nighttime on some weird-looking cloudy weather or something, right? Because it looks creepy as hell, in a good way.

Details in the game and its enviroment that we can relate to can provoke a real emotion among players, adding to the immersion. Those screenshots told me more about the uncertain and terrifying times Stormwind went through during the cataclysm than the many pages of text I've read. It makes the game way more interesting, the world more dynamic and the experience more engaging.

Loving it more.
I would like that. I was really bummed when The Drag in Orgrimmar was no longer dark.
I would absolutely love it too.

what are these from beta?
so much better than current bright nights.
When those with power in your city are paladins and priests and both their powers are derived from The Light, well it doesn't take a genius to see what's going on in ol' Stormwind.

Just be glad you don't need to wear shades while in town.

But I want to wear my sunglasses at night.

Same. Orgrimmar feels less like a fortress dug out of a hillside these days and more like a cattle pen.

Nope, there is a program for helping create machinima videos and it allows changing skyboxes, light color, toggle visual effects such as black n white death effect. Everything it uses is actually already in-game. I don't understand why blizz can't give us an optional switch to a normal night skybox.

The program is called wow machinima tool. I wouldn't recommend using it for everyday use though.

Orgrimmar and durotar at night. Sorry about the cursors, I didn't notice them.

I really like those screenshots, but it'd be perfect with a tad bit more lighting. It's cool to actually have a realistic day/night phase.
my goodness this is beautiful

how come i never see the two at the same time when i look up?
I live in a large city, even with all the lights it gets dark at night. Org being stuck in a constant orange glow sucks.
