Interesting...most of the people who are FOR vanilla WoW seem to be recounting the fun they had with friends, quests, exploring, etc. Almost without exception, the people nay-saying it are talking about raids and boss drops. Two different sides of the coin, to be sure. Me? I'm an explorer. I, personally, could care less about raiding. I've participated in a couple of them, but I never really found myself "having fun". It was more of a "here, you do this while I do this and he does that and make sure you don't do anything else" kind of thing and it stripped away the enjoyment of the game for me. That's why I don't do battlegrounds, either. It just wasn't "playing" anymore. It suddenly became more like "work".I enjoy the richness of the WORLD of Warcraft, not just about massive damage and phat lewtz, but to each their own, I suppose. I guess that's why I prefer mostly solo adventuring these days.Would I like to see a vanilla WoW server? I'm of mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, I started out pre-BC, so it would be kinda cool and yes, I would enjoy it. I still have the second character I ever created running about somewhere - I'll have to revive her one of these days. I think she's just topped level 50-ish if I remember correctly.On the other hand, I'm also really fond of my Belf and Draenei toons :-)Still, it would be a nice option for those who either don't have the expansions, don't want to spend the money on the expansions but still enjoy the game, or just don't really care about all of the things that have come about since BC and 3.0.2 came around.Blizzard would still get their subscription rates, so it's not like they'd be losing out on all that much money if someone didn't want to get BC or Wrath. In fact, they'd probably wind up with more revenue by attracting people back to the game who left BECAUSE of BC, Wrath, 3.0.2+ and so forth.
