Awesome! Setting up a private server is one thing, but a server with a micro-transaction market? That takes some stones.And who's stupid enough to use something like a credit card or paypal on a private server to pay for stuff anyways? Oh wait, I know the answer to that: $3 million worth of dumba**es

same thing could be said about blizzard and whoever bought that mount and pet.its their own money, it not forced so people paying are doing it for their own "benefit".

Yeah, and that's really why Blizzard went after that server. Most of the time, Blizzard is not really known to *actively pursue* private servers. If they can shut one down, so be it, but when it's free they don't care so much — more often than not, people use private servers to try the game and then switch to retail when they decide they like it, therefore buying the game when they wouldn't have otherwise. But when the private server is making money, selling Blizzard's product in an unauthorized manner, that's when Blizzard brings out the attorneys.

I agree, there exist some private servers that do things that Wow should do in my opinion. Battlesground exclusive worlds that let you pick a geared at capped toon of any class. I always found it was great practice and was a great idea to learn how other classes functioned too.But, this was at a time when location made playing the actual WoW game impossible. Now I have no excuse. Haven't done a private server since. =)Downrank away!
