I love when people that are like 15-17 years old reminisce over vanilla wow and hold it up on a pedestal
you still believed in santa claus when that shit came out please don’t
One of these days I will go back into my IRC chatlogs and compile a list of every single bug that was complained about in vanilla and just post it reply to every ciclejerk nostalgia thread.
Please oh please do this.
I think the only thing I could say Vanilla held over the game’s current incarnation was the feeling of accomplishment, even in relatively small tasks like “I finally saved up 600g for my epic mount” or “I finally got a group to kill Nathanos Blightcaller”. But part of the reason accomplishment felt so good was due to how unenjoyable the buildup was, especially if you weren’t a poopsocker in a 40-man guild.
Rose-tinted nostalgia goggles at their foggiest.
I’m actally looking at it now and I am finding gems like
“I keep having to go back and put 1 point in three- or five-point talents so I can get to the next tier”
“ I SHOULDN’T HAVE TO STAND AT THE MAILBOX FOR 45 MINUTES TO SEND SOME GOLD”
And its sequel:
“some asshole closed my mail window by opening a trade window without asking”

Some things never change:
