Not to be a jerk, but this sounds like the same high-horse drivel we hear whenever anyone talks about pre-BC content. It's a really cool idea, if only they'd be less...pretentious about it."To me, the expansions that were released by Blizzard in no way met my expectations that I had for them""I was in a top raiding guild on my server and had everything going for me, at 80 especially -- I just did not enjoy the experience""I can only hope that one day a pre-BC server is opened""It is a stupid move to make something, then move it to Northrend. This eliminated such a large chunk of the game they developed. For what reason? In my opinion, pure laziness, greediness -- or both"Yeah. They're the ones being greedy, not you, right? /facepalm

I agree about the Naxx bit especially. Naxx was a brilliant bit of content that no one ever saw anymore due to the rep requirements and the fact that it was just plain obsolete. Why bother pay that much money or grinding that much rep when you can just bomb through Kara in... what, an hour tops?Bringing Naxx back to the masses was a fantastic move. I know I, as someone who just started playing in BC, would've never set foot in there if they hadn't re-tuned it to level 80.This one guild is far less important than the rest of players who never got to raid pre-BC. Let's be honest, most of them have secondary BC/LK accounts anyway. ;)

/agreedPlay the game as you want to; it's your money, do with it as you will. But do not disparage the rest of us who thoroughly enjoy the BC and Wrath content.

Wow at you guys. He never said he didn't like the fact 80s get to do naxx he said he didn't like the fact they removed the content at 60 completely just so that people at 80 can do it.I agree i think it was a better idea to move it, though at the same time it was lazy since they didn't have to come up with something new, but they should have left it there for level 60s to play with. Much like Kael was in TK and in MGT why can we not have two Naxx's so that all content stayed in the game?

Nothing is as good as it is in your memory.Thats the primary thing all these "Old school" type players forget when they ask for a "Pre BC" server. I wasn't there for it but I have friends and guildies that were and they all say they wouldn't go back if you payed them. While classes still had issues in BC and still will in Wrath and byond one friend discribed balance as "100x better".As others have pointed out intrest would peak for about a month untill people realised that they are playing a primitive version of regular WoW. Then all you would have is a few die hards desperatly lfg on AQ 40.Not worth it.....

Right, I don't think these people remember just how bad the talent trees were back in 1.x. Hybrid classes? What hybrid classes? You had prot warriors, cat druids, marksmen hunters, holy paladins, holy priests, and enhancement shamen. That was it, the other trees weren't worth anything. If you weren't spec'd like that, you didn't go on raids. The only classes that were allowed to diversify were rogues, warlocks, and to some extent mages (frost until BWL, then go to fire, arcane doesn't exist).No one had ever even heard of a prot paladin, and retadins were still a joke even after BC came out. Druids? Ok, sure, we'll take a couple druids, need that token battle res afterall, but we don't expect much else from them.They can talk about being "pure" with their equipment and enchant requirements, but they still have the new class changes, and those changes make raiding a whole hell of a lot easier now then it was back then.
