Pristine Servers? How idiotic. What part of people enjoy the Vanilla content do they not understand. Vanilla areas are completely different now! The Raids and dungeons are different now. The landscapes and quests are different. Heck even the mobs are a cake walk and you can level with just white damage while you go afk. Blizz just doesn't get it. They think their "progression" is what people want. Give me a break! Their numbers are terrible now. I wouldn't be surprised if in the near future you have more people on private servers than you do on live.

The game is ruined for those who played for the "MM" part of MMORPG. IMO, WoW cannot be called one any more. It's a single player game. I for one am addicted once again to WoW. Why? because of the amazing new content? Because of all the new add-on luxuries? Because of smaller raids? No, because I found a server that brought back the game when it was fun! When you had to actually watch where you went because a single mob could kill you. When you had epic questlines that made you feel engulfed in the world. When you had to interact and travel through the world. Where people in the community will group with you "just because" you are both there doing the same quest. I could go on about how much better it is, but I'll spare you.


I have realized I will continue to engage in illegal activities until Blizz wakes up and creates a TRUE VANILLA server that I can play on and would even sub for.

Wellll, Nostalrius said they will not be releasing anything. They also said they are talking to Blizzard. If I were a smart man, which we all know I'm not, I would say Blizz is now finally entertaining the idea of a vanilla server. This is really good news!!! :) IF they do pristine server as mentioned before, it'll flop. I hope they do make a true vanilla server. Awesomesauce!

Post Re: Blizzard "Pristine" Realms
I love the fact they've been telling the community for years - "we don't have the code! wah!". Such BS. If a development shop had a dev that didn't check in their code on any project, much less an actual release version, there would be hell to pay. Of course they have each release, branch and tag of all their server and client code - to think otherwise would be ludicrous.

How convenient that since subs have fallen such a degree they are willing to entertain the idea of making those servers and clients available. I don't like Blizzard's business model very much, but I'd pay a sub for the option to play any release of WoW I wanted. As Ret didn't hit it's stride until the last patch of TBC, I'd probably have to go with WoTLK. Although healing in Vanilla was a major challenge at times, even in dungeons.

Post Re: Blizzard "Pristine" Realms
hehe, yea exactly. I would 100% pay for a sub to be able to play any release. Personally what I think would be perfect is what Nostalrius was going to do. A server for each expansion. So once you reach 60 you can copy your toon to a TBC server and play there but also stay on Vanilla and do end game content there.

I'm going to continue playing on vanilla.re since there are no PvE vanilla servers now. :( I will probably roll some toons on playtbc if it ever gets going.

There is only one server for vanilla.re although now they are https://vanilla-servers.org/. They say it's a beta server. The PvE will depend on how much population they get when they go with a "live" server.
