When I first started playing WoW, I was on Zul'jin realm (US) in the Ruin Battlegroup. We had a pretty excellent player community. During the war effort, both Horde and Alliance players called a ceasefire to world pvp, and the whole server worked together in the race to get our gates open. The scepter was forged by the Horde raiding guild "Transcendence", an extremely bang up group of guys, and we ended up being the 3rd guild in the world to open our gates on 1/31/06. I remember I called out from work the day of the event. After the fiascos on Mannoroth & Medivh, Blizzard suspended all new character creation on the server until after the event, which stemmed the flood of people making characters to see the event for themselves, allowing us a (relatively) smooth gate opening.I had actually filmed the majority of world event for my at-the-time-guild(and later forgot about it until just recently). The video itself is awful, full of terrible fonts, 5-10fps lag spikes, choppy graphics, me being a clicker noob, mass hysteria, etc, but if you've never seen what these events looked like in person/weren't around for them, it serves as a window back into the craziness of vanilla content.(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHRQv3vyqlc - 0:49 to skip stupid intro)
