As someone who played the original wow and loved just about everything with it (except the bugs/technical issues of course), I feel kind of sad seeing developers talk about how everything they did originally was wrong and it all has to change for this reason or that because their original design sucked. Its no wonder I don't like the game as much anymore...

It's like being an artist and looking at a painting you did when you where beginning to paint .You can't help feeling that you could have done better with the experience you have today.

Nostalgia snobs, you gotta love them

Some things age better than others. I loved Civilization II and Rage of Mages when they came out. Civ II is still one of the greatest games of all time, but Rage of Mages has aged about as well as milk under the sofa.Also, as an MMO, I started playing in 05 expecting the story of WoW to advance and zones to change, because I entered the game actively wanting a dynamic world. I like seeing the unfolding saga of Hogger, Vanessa, the Red Ridge bridge as much as the fate of Illidan and his demonic legion. Static lore is stagnant lore.

When the developers don't like it and 90% of the playerbase don't like it, you can't blame them for changing it.

As someone who has been playing since a week after initial retail launch, I am exceedingly glad they made the changes they did. I leveled a few different classes during vanilla and a few recently. I can't even begin to say how much better the leveling experience is.Also, in general the game is much better at presenting important information to you in the actual game. I go to other sites to research stuff about a class, but newer people or more casual players should not *have* to refer to sites like that just to find out some of the basic information about the specs/gear they need to have. Hit rating, and defense rating (RIP) are a couple of examples.
