  1. Keep the expansions how they are. People are going to bitch no matter what you do since people like different things from different expansions. At least this way there is no unnecessary drama of people always trying to campaign for what they want and at the same time completely deriding anyone who suggests a change that they don't want for being unblizzlike. There are tons of things from each and every expansion I have loved and things I haven't. I have said it before and I will say it again. I don't think LFG and LFR would have been nearly as detrimental if they had been tied to just one server. If people knew they would see the people they are running the dungeons with again they would not be nearly as toxic as they turned into. They also wouldnt have as many people who didn't say a word since there was no point to make a connection with the people in your group that you wont ever run into again.
  2. Well, I'm done. Not with Crestfall but with the forums. I'll still be here come 2030 for release and I'll still read the bi-weekly updates. But I just really don't care about anything else. All I want is a server that has good quality, good population and PTE. Everything else doesn't matter to me. I have my Beta invite to Burning Crusade, I'll be over there helping out. See you all once this comes out.
  3. I agree with you that a lot people are being selfish about this. Everybody wants Crestfall to be what is, in their mind, the perfect WoW experience. The unfortunate truth is that so many people have differing ideas that you can't please everyone and the developers have to just go with their own vision. I know that I have been around here for a little over year, whether I had an account or was just lurking. While I can't claim to have spoken to Asura , Darkrasp or Crogge about it, I have read all their posts and can infer a decent amount. They are interested in PTE. Everything they have said has been about how they want an amazing core and to have a truly PTE experience for the first time in the WoW private server scene. The problem is that if you are planning on running for the next 8-10 years and going through all the expansions is how do you deal with people that don't want to progress. Do people really think that 10 years from now Asura wants to be running and managing 20 different servers across 7 different expansions. That you have to take time away from developing the core and focusing on PTE like his vision is, and focusing on if he needs to release a new fresh vanilla server since the current one is now 8 years old at that point. The answer is no. So how do you solve that problem in advance? You create a Legacy Network. You bring people on who can be in charge of just dealing with vanilla, or TBC, or WotLK, and you can focus on only dealing with what you want to do. Which is PTE. Can you imagine the outcry and amount of butthurt people would have if after 16 months they announced that they have no interest in dealing with vanilla for the rest of time. That they are being forced to progress. At least this way eveyone will be on the same core and the quality of the server won't drop. The main problem they have is that they are developers. Not PR people. To all the people who say "you betrayed us and I wan't nothing to do with you or the free service you provide". Well, tough shit. This is their server and they will run it how they want.
  4. I honestly think people will like Cata a lot better on a server like this. While there will still be lfr and lfg it would be one server only. That means you don't get the toxicity or silence that is retail since you actually will be running into the same people multiple times and will have a repercussion to being an ass. Plus there won't be the long ass break with nothing to do after DS.
  5. Yeah I don't really get this? Why does this need to be changed? Because some classes can farm easier than others? That seems like kind of bullshit to me. Some classes are better at things than others. Thats vanilla. If you want all classes to be at the same level go play retail. There shouldn't be any changes to nerf farming. As long as a player isnt exploiting anything than let them do whatever they want.
  6. All I want and ask for is a Training dummy. There is no good reason not to include it other than it's not blizzlike.
  7. Is there a time frame on when the project status page will be ready?
  8. Anyone who gets worked up over beta is just an entitled asshole. I know we all would love to be able to get in there and get a look at the work you all have done. But its not like you owe any of us anything. You don't have a deadline to meet. You guys aren't stopping us from spending time on other games. When it comes it comes, and I will enjoying finding out if it really is as great as you guys make it sound.
  9. I am willing to go as far as the devs are willing to take this thing. I think a lot of the faults that people have with Cata onward will be solved by there only being the 2 servers. Hopefully stuff like lfg and lfr won't be so toxic and idiot filled since peoples actions will have repercussions. That way we can get the benefits of quality of life improvements, and the world won't seem empty where no one ever talks because you are never going to see the people in your group ever again.
  10. Excellent as always. I look forward to these every Monday. Love hearing pathing issues are being fixed. If you guys get pathing right you will be better than every single private server out the gate.
  11. There will still be plate gear with int on it. Just no plate gear with only int.
  12. I almost always roll mage but I want my blood elves. I dont want to have play a different race of mage only to have to level a different one come the next expansion. Im thinking of going enhance shaman until BC comes around and switching to mage for the rest of time.
  13. It is probably a lot smaller than you think it is. You know how I know. What is the first thing that everyone does in every expansion as soon as they physically can. They buy a flying mount or cold weather flying so that they don't have to use their shit ground mounts anymore. The reason that wpvp isn't a thing in retail or any private server that isn't vanilla is because the vast majority of people don't enjoy it. People enjoy raiding some faction leaders from time to time but most people don't enjoy being constantly ganked by people much higher level than them who suck at actual pvp so they have to go and pick on some lowbies since those are the only people they can actually kill. As you can probably guess I am not a fan of wpvp. I love me some arenas and cant wait until BC comes around. But I'm not asking them to introduce arenas early or asking them to add flying early so that I can have everything I enjoy early or avoid the things I don't like. They are trying to make as an authentic blizzard experience as they can. I highly doubt they will change the expansions drastically just because part of the population would prefer it. Them sticking to as blizzlike as possible is the easiest thing for them since they don't have to sit there and get into debates with every single person on which individual thing they are going to add to the game or not.
  14. If you hate flying mounts that much than just stay on the vanilla server. No one is forcing you to move onto the BC server. Just because you enjoy wpvp and not being able to fly doesn't mean that they have to change the entire dynamic of outlands so that a certain small percentage can be happy.
