God, just go play SNES if you really want to live in the past. That's what most people do.

LOL, nicely put.I do love old school as much as the next guy, but there's nothing wrong with BC (and soon to be Wrath). It's change, people, just buck up and keep up with the pace. :)

Eh, I believe most people's complaint is that the old world content is, largely, ignored in the face of all the shiny new stuff in Outland. It was hard enough getting 40 people together to raid BEFORE BC, now it's damned near impossible. And yes, you CAN do it with 15 people now, but that feels cheap and inauthentic. Yes, there was that guild that showed up in a recent WoWinsider article, but they're a rarity at best.I don't agree with the idea of "classic" servers, but I can understand why people would want it.

it's easy to see why blizz have slammed the door shut on that the idea of classic servers; there's no money to be made from it. With no new content are people really going to be continually paying for the same content month after month after month?the obvious answer is a flat no. However, my own personal experience is that i started playing wow in public beta, and signed up from release where i slowly lvl'd a lock to 60 on a pvp realm, and did some lower lvl end-game instances, along with working towards my epic mount. Then more friends joined and i re-rolled a pve hunter. I gave up the game before AQ and BC went live, and have missed out on all that content. has the excitement of AQ and BC bought me back to the game? no way. I love the old nordic style lore, and long for that 1-60 content, and i'm so far loving it. The stylings of BC. I've taken my hunter in to outland, and whilst i admit the gear there rocks, the stylings and looks of it do not, and to be honest i've returned my 61 hunter the old world areas that i've not touched yet, which should see me through to 65. However WotLK hopes to address that and return to the stylings and looks that i like.In terms of classic, i think just capping the lvl again on classic realms to 60, and closing the portal would be enough. that still opens a lot of cool gear through pvp, but not through crafting, raids or AH. it's really not that much work for blizzard to implement at all; as i said, they're just scared of people not willing to pay for stale content. :-)
