Breakfast topic: The good old days

I've been playing World of Warcraft for nearly three of it's four year run. It's kind of amazing to me to see how things have changed over time. Many of the adjustments have been by player suggestions, and most of them for the good. The folks I've been playing with lately don't have nearly as much time in the game. I find myself reminiscing and thinking about the way things were, and telling them how good they have it now. Some things I remember least fondly are:

  • Single-server battlegrounds, and sometimes waiting hours for a queue.
  • The old battleground ranking system, with one High Warlord per server.
  • 40-man instances, if you think keeping 25 people in line is challenging, give this one a go.
  • Epic ground mounts for 1000 gold in a time when cash did not flow so freely.
  • Horde had no Paladins and Alliance had no Shamans.
  • Before the report feature, I got a whisper message from a gold spammer about every thirty seconds.
  • Many more limitations on where mounts were allowed.
