so servers pre-expansions? what's the appeal, out of curiosity?

There's a variety of reasons. Nostalgia for most. Difficulty for many. A chance to reconnect and share adventures with old friends. A chance to see what vanilla was like for those who missed it. Uncompromised classes. Whatever the reasons Vanilla is the purest form of WOW and the version remembered most fondly.

Can one give me a quick list what a vanilla server would be?

WoW at launch right? pre-expansions.

Yes. Blizzlike is another term you may see, which means the private server matches as close to the original pre-expansion experience as possible.

Ok so they offer a vanilla server, but you still have to pay a monthly sub. How many people do you think will play then?

Lots! People are telling Blizzard if you spin up vanilla servers they would resub (I would too). Nostalrius had close to a million registered accounts and over 100,000 active.

Vaporware
Meh, that's probably the wrong term for it. 2.3 plays nicely, even if it's only one environment. They'll just never make it a "universe" of 100 systems before they run out of money. There's a reason E:D and NMS went procedural.

That's why I called it vaporware. It's never going to have all the things pitched, like 100 systems. Even if the game is released it won't be complete.

Over 55,000 people signed Nostalrius' petition to encourage Blizzard open an official vanilla server. 55,000 is more people that the total number of registered accounts for some modern MMOs.

Don't worry, the support staff of the other servers were told the same thing. Free labor. Don't let it bother you.

Kind of happy this is happening, UWP needs to die in a fire.

Microsoft probably feels the game is working fine, you don't need more than 30 er 25 hmmm 18 frames per second or so.

Microsoft logic:

1 frame = A picture
A picture = 1,000 words of information
18 frames = 18,000 words of information

Look at how fast information appears on screen!

Wow, PCs are no good anymore. Perhaps I should get a console.

Perhaps you should. Also be sure to frequent NeoGAF. It's a site for peasants console gamers.

These servers don't "rely on donations to keep the server running"...they are actually making exhorbinant amounts of money.

I remember a couple years ago one got shut down after it was realized that the server's owner was making $250,000 a MONTH running it.

I currently play on one off and on that runs multiple servers from multiple expansions, and I know they are easily making millions of dollars a year.

Is it theft? Well, they are profiting off of someone else's intellectual property...so yes.

When Blizzard serves them with papers, they shut down. Ironically, Blizzard rarely ever does however. (and when they do, they pop right back up under a different name a week later) So it's all properly just an exercise in futility.

I was a staff member of Nostalrius so I can tell you for a fact they were not making exorbitant amounts of money. In fact they made practical nothing. The server was a labor of love for the vanilla WOW community.

SPOILERS BELOW! I assume at this point you've seen the film.

The main complaints about TFA are kind of silly. Yes, she naturally picks things up and is good at them BUT - she has defended herself with a staff for years. Not hard to make the transition to a saber from that. Some people can pick up a gun and they are naturally good shots. She has been piloting stuff before. It's not like she didn't have the background to be predisposed to being good at this stuff.

Not to mention Anakin and Luke were both god at the things she is good at. Hmmm....

And Leia hugging Rey instead of Chewie...could it be because uncle Han died and Leia senses or knows Rey is her niece?

Likely because Leia and Rey are force sensitive. There was an connection on an emotional level that goes deeper than the friendship between Chewie and Leia.

That's just my take. I don't have a problem with the scene.

Pretty fucking sad deal. Why the fuck would they go for Nostalrius when there are other private servers with cash shops. Nostalrius didn't have sort of cash shop only donation to maintain the server and pay the server host.

Numbers. Nost had 3 quarters of a million registered accounts with 15k concurrent active accounts. Most private servers barely have a fraction of a fraction of that.
