    I think they may find that all the old player are well...older and don't have time to play MMO's

    Well the players who quit would have bought the expansions back then anyway. I'd say this is more to bring in new players - lower the wall to playability.

    I would come back. I enjoy the game. But the time... man the time. Ain't got none.

    Warlords really killed it for me with the garrison-ville, and the gutting of professions to be their least interesting incarnation ever. Haven't even looked at legion but I'd definitely consider signing up again for classic.. in the same boat about not really having the time to justify it though

    Playing a healer for the first time on classic servers recently really killed the nostalgia for me! Two Wailing Caverns runs were enough. Experienced players were just running straight through, rushing the whole thing. My cries of "OOM!" went unnoticed and people died. Not fun, deleted.

    With all the timegatey bullshit they've put in over the last few expansions to make their level boosts look better it wouldn't surprise me if this was a step towards f2p

    yeah before imho, WoW was a better game in that the grind was lessen while the commitment and skill requirement was still relatively high depending on what content you wanted to see. But then they kept lowering and lowering and lowering it until it is only marginally better than more korean grind fests and the skill requirement is so low , watching some mates raid i was like jebus, that is so easy and yet at least half your guildmates are complete noobs. And they all went yeah it is pretty much a shitnoobfest nowadays.

    i am betting the whole pvp bit will be fun for awhile until the 98% of the population of carebears decide this is too "intrusive " and go back to whining about how it is too hard etc.

    WoW's golden age was a period of time that simply can't be replicated. Doesn't matter if they bring the best version of it back with classic servers, I just can't enjoy it as much as I did back in 2007-2009 and that's not for lack of trying. I realized during the two days I played Legion that the game I loved when I was 18 had moved on from me as much as I had moved on from it, and that's how it should be. It was a bloody good time.

    This is true. I have a fondness for WoW, but not because of the game itself. It was the people. Each night, teaming up with the 'boys (and girl)' - doing quests 'n dungeons n' shit. Meeting up with others along our travels. We were essentially creating our own stories on the back of the 'in-game' story.

    Then coming together the follow day at work and discussing the previous nights' adventures.

    However, as people do, we drifted apart and couldn't find the time. New jobs. New cities. New commitments. People got married. People had children. People passed away.

    There was more to WoW than the game itself - it was the experience which is personal to everyone. None of that can be replicated.

    You cannot bring back the past, enjoy your memories because that's all they are - we all have fond memories of a game we used to play and there is no way to bring that back - it's not just about the game, even if you go play the exact same game now it will not be the same, what's done is done
