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.

Star Wars: Mockingjay

Disney is obviously pushing a strong female as the main character to broaden the audience and make more money but this is getting to the point of pandering.

What do you mean 'getting to the point'? That's what Disney does as a company. It's their MO, because it's a small world after all, doncha know.


That, and the fact that they haven't even started on the Indiana Jones IP; another IP they obtained from the LucasFilm purchase. Disney could, if they wanted, compete against Tomb Raider by casting a female lead. The director behind the TR reboot wants to hire Daisy Ridley to play Laura Croft.

India Jones and the Croft of Shadows

If you have any question for the Nostalrius staff the authorized AMA going on now for the next 3 hours.

By the way I was part of the ISVV crew; documenting and reproducing bugs people would find for the programmers to smash. It was a lot of work, and sadly I was only able to do it for a while before I had to stop. But during that time I was happy to assist in making Nostalrius a great vanilla experience for the community. Specifically I did a lot of work testing bugs found in UBRS and LBRS. Also helped reproduce a lot of class mechanic bugs. My ISVV name was Korval.

I have not been this excited for Star Wars since I was a kid. I just got Force Awakens on bluray and it was still awesome the second time around, and I actually want to watch it again. Now Rogue One? Awesome!

I think you mean Blu-Rey!

Was also wondering if they were really going to make December, as before now, we'd not seen any footage.

I think they will. They started working on Rogue One about the same time as TFA. The release cycle for the main films and anthology films is actually pretty smart.

Episode 7: 2015
Rogue One: 2016
Episode 8: 2017
2nd Anthology film: 2018
Episode 9: 2019
3rd Anthology film: 2020

It typically takes about a year and a half to make a blockbuster film so staggering these releases is brilliant. This means while we wait for the main episodic film we have the anthology films to fill the gaps.

Just thought of something. What if the reason Blizzard did this is they're working on a vanilla server and plan on announcing it at BlizzCon? It would make sense to shut down one of the largest private vanilla server ahead of time.

Maybe they'll announce the launch of a vanilla server.

I wish they would rethink the way they're titling these anthology movies. You typed it the same way I do. And I'm always initially confused when I'm looking for it in a list or auto complete isn't finishing it etc... because the actual name is fucking Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Terrible.

You could call it Star Wars: Rogue One... It doesn't have an Episode Roman Numeral title, that's enough to distinguish it from the regular narrative series.

Maybe the reason they're doing that is because JJ Abrams got rid of the "Episode VII" from the title of TFA like he got rid of the colons from the Star Trek films. Referring to Star Trek he said something like "I don't like colons in my film names." I can see how, without the episode number, someone might be confused with:

Star Wars The Force Awakens
Star Wars Rogue One

If you're going to be cooking in freezing or sub-freezing conditions, you really ought to consider a rocket stove.

And if you form a group of other rocket stove owners you can call this group Rocket League. Okay... I'll keep my day job.
