  • Elysium 'Private Server' Shuts Down Temporarily Due to Financial Shenanigans - World of Warcraft - M

    But.... if people wanted to see what WoW Vanilla use to feel like http://store.steampowered.com/app/350660/Alganon/ that closer WoW Vanilla clone I ever seen.
    That title is complete garbage, run into the ground by Derek My-Mission-In-Life-Is-To-Shit-On-Star-Citizen Smart.

    Good, now the freeloaders can pay for a WoW sub like everyone else. The only reason they were playing this server was because it was free (with a cash shop I guess). No more stealing from Blizzard, and if they still don't want to pay for WoW (which you can play for free anyway by grinding gold)...well plenty of other free MMOs.
    Are you insane? I tried retail Wow. Legion is horrible, I can take my tank and round up every mob in a zone, kill them all and finish with full health. How is this fun? I never played Wow until WotLK and it was never my favorite game but I played because my friends played. I recently tried this Vanilla Wow and it blew me away. Leveling is a challenge. By level 10 I have died a ton. You get a gear upgrade at lvl 8 and it is exciting because you need it. This has nothing to do with it being free, it has to do with it being a vastly superior product. I only play games with Subs which leaves not too many games these days. I really wish someone would make a vanilla LOTRO game as that was my all time favorite game....
    Oh yay. Leveling takes longer, I die more often during it, and gear comes less often and with smaller incremental upgrades. Good thing the combat is slower, more boring, and way more unbalanced and the game changes entirely at end-game so it's all worth it. Blows the goddamn mind, that superior design.
    Sounds like you aren't very good at the vanilla game so you'd be better off sticking with retail, where they shower you with gear no matter how much you suck.  Gear rarity is one of the aspects of the original game that is attractive to people who like their rewards to feel like actual rewards, meaning they're earned.

    Bullshit.  I briefly played on it while at the same time having an official WoW subscription.  Try again.

    Why were they better?

    They weren't.
    Oh, they definitely were.  The MMOs now are a joke compared to the ones around when World of Warcraft was new.  They were more challenging and therefore more interesting.  And they attracted more competent players.  Nowadays you can suck ass and still excel in whatever MMO you're playing.  The entire genre has become one large, bad joke.

  • Obsidian Entertainment Wants Your Input About DLC & Its Games - General News

    The best DLC is no DLC. Make a complete game and if you want to expand upon it then create an entire expansion and sell that, like how it was back in the days of Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale.
