this is old wow its vanilla settings server was released 3months ago

the current aka Retail wow is meh no build diversity whatsoever

a blind monkey could play it thats how much they dumbed it down and made it easymode

i personally am amazed how some guilds dont manage full clears

again this is my personal opinion ive played all wow expansions to date

and the best ones according to me are

Vanilla, TBC, Wrath of the lichking

after cataclysm pun intended game turned to much towards softies
and left seasoned players with content that they cleared in 1-2months
and then had nothing to do for 5-7months untill they released next raid

"the current aka Retail wow is meh no build diversity whatsoever"

Yeah. Blizzard's tens of millions of dollars invested, continuing successful expansion packs, minimum ~500,000 subscribers in the lulls, totally speak to a game that is "meh".

their tailoring it to the major population aka softies....

im a hardcore gamer i never said i was a mainstream gamer

most of world of warcrafts players are softies nowdays

because most of the hardcore players quit or started playing private servers...


The Elysium WoW Legacy Server had its first important stress test on Sunday to see how the server responded to the demand of players wanting to experience the original World of Warcraft. The response was overwhelming. With more than 20,000 new accounts created, and at one time the server hosted 7,500 concurrent players, legacy World of Warcraft proved to be overwhelmingly popular.

id hardly... it is clear that it is in demand

but yes the hardcore gamers are a minority among players

blizzard and most mmorpg targets the Majority to get the games to sell well etc

but that doesnt change the fact that games made for majority
rarily satisfies hardcore players who like a challange
and dont want everything handed to them on a silver platter








and to regarding expansions... they have lost subscribers bigtime after Cataclysm expansion the expansion when they started dumbing things down for the masses...
they steadily gained subscribers all the way untill Wrath of the lich king. after release of Cataclysm... cataclysm hit their subscribers aswell
i mean seriously if u dont have to work hard for something it aint worth nothing why do u think people played xenimus
they did because if they got something it was through hard work and dedication mixed with luck

Image



as for my own personal list of favorit expansions it would be...

1 TBC, Wotlk
2 empty
3 Legion
4 mists of pandaria
5 warlords of Draenor
6 Cataclysm

Yeah totes. That's why you're pointing at a chart and saying 5 MILLION SUBSCRIBERS in the lulls is "weak". Yeah totes. "All" those millions of "hardcore players" quit and that's why private servers have populations in the hundreds of thousands to millions right?

It's a shame the server you linked to has a population of about 2-4k per server. I guess 2,000-3,000 players made up the "Hardcore" playerbase out of those millions.

p.s.

Your worst cataclysm data point exceeds your best vanilla data point.

People always say vanilla this and that.. but it wasn't THAT amazing.. it was the beginning.. "hardcore" players always claim to have left but when i log on I still see those massive PvP guilds doing the same sh*t they always do.

wow is ok, at best. same as Rift. same boring thing over and over. I cant believe teenagers still play ANY versions of WoW in 2016 or 2017.
