Just rolling back the game to how it was 4 years ago wouldn't solve the problem I have with the game these days. On my server at least, there was a great sense of community. But so many of the big changes Blizzard has made to improve the game have come at the expense of the community. I don't mean one's circle of friends, but the larger community of the players in your faction. We once shared a feeling of common purpose. Now that is gone.Also, there are so many carrots in the game to lure the players along that the players no long have any internal motivations, a situation that really started with the "honor" system and has crept into every aspect of the game.But even if they changed the game back to the the way it was, that wouldn't fix the situation. Blizzard has trained the players too well for the current players to return to that more open, inner-directed style of playing. And it also would not bring back the community which existed around that open, mutual endeavor. I still have a good number of people I enjoy playing the game with, but that larger community has been fractured by the isolating nature of the current game.

This might be a stupid question, but are there any Burning Crusade servers left? Or are those also a thing of the past?

No. Well, more accurately, yes. But only in China, where they keep rejecting Wrath builds due to unacceptable content.
