Can you link me to Blizzards official Vanilla WoW servers though?TheScavenger said:http://us.blizzard.com/en-us/games/d2/BruceYee said:Current WoW and Vanilla WoW are like two completely different games which is why these guys were able to do what they did for so long.
Blizzard should realize that some people just don't like current WoW just like many do not like D3 and would much rather play D2 if they could.
It's not always about making millions though. When ToA expansion came out for DAoC and enough people complained about it ruining the game, guess what. Mythic Entertainment didn't go, "F*ck You!" did they? Nope, they made a classic server and the fans were happy! Blizzard doesn't need millions from a vanilla server. What they need right now is to not look like a bunch of greedy billionaire a-holes.TheScavenger said:If blizzard saw that a classic server was worth the time and investment, they'd have done it by now. They don't go "ah yeah that classic server would make us millions! But lets not bother making it"...
...no, they more go "well a lot of people are playing these classic WoW servers, but we are pretty sure most people wouldn't pay for it and it wouldn't be worth the investment and resources to put into it"
Well, unfortunately, language needs stability for anyone to understand what a person is talking about. Which goes back to my original argument. If someone goes up and tells someone that their apple is an orange because that is what they believe, guess what, that person is deemed an idiot. There are however, words such as fruit which cover a wide range of edible food items. Break it down even further, apples is a general term as well, as we have several types of apples. The problem is, MMOs are not single player games. If they were, we'd call them single player games and vice versa. Most games you play online are multiplayer, but being multiplayer does not mean it's an MMO. MMO is a specific genre. Once people understand the basic concept of language, it becomes a lot easier to understand the importance of using words as they are intended.I don't care what other people call themselves, what they do, or what they play. I know what MMORPG means to me. I get how other MMOs and multiplayer games are different. I just don't care about those semantics because they don't affect how and what I play.Look man, massively multiplayer has to be more than multiplayer, you can't have 3 players and call it massive in any way whatsoever.I'm just pointing out that some people like those games and there's nothing wrong with that. If people want a 3 person "mmo" and want to pay for it with loot crates, then more power to them. You implied there was something wrong with that which is what I responded to.If someone likes a game or not is irrelevant to it being a MMO. People are using the term incorrectly, 3-4 people is not a MMO. As far as gambling loot boxes, do you really want to defend those?MMORPG.com where 3 players is a MMO and loot boxes are loved.
As someone who wants an actual MMO with hundreds to thousands of players and no cash shop it really feels liked the plug has been pulled and the drain is being circled.
So the question is why can't you people get off your collective butts and build an mmo that you like instead of bitching at the people who like 3 person loot crate cash shop mongers? Seems like all they did was have an mmo built they're bankrolling. You guys should try that.
Then you said you want an MMO with some feature requirements so I suggested you should go get your MMO built instead of taking cheap shots at people who like 3 person "mmos" and loot crates. Do you think you can't have your game if they have theirs?
Imagine if you were talking about a "single player game" and had to put that in quotes because it actually had multiplayer...
People on here can call D2 and MMO all they want and it means nothing to me because why should it? On the 24th I'm going to shoot things with other people online.
If you want to trip up over someone being wrong on the internet, it's your time. It still won't get you the game you want to play. Do you want to spend your energy telling people they're labeling things wrong or do you want to spend it getting games you like to play made? Maybe you've got time and energy for both. There is Pantheon and CU coming soonish. That should be encouraging.
