    Thanks Elysium

    Thanks from me also!
  2. I find it kind of frustrating logging on every day to see people crowing about how they're going to abandon the server in a week to go play on WoW classic where the servers are 'more populated' and how everyone else is a stupid peasant for not doing so over a measly $15. In several areas on Nighthaven I have had to wait in a queue for mobs to respawn so I can kill them for a quest and people still say the server lacks population. I don't think those people ever played WoW on release date because everything except Ironforge was more or less abandoned after the first 6 months and world pvp was dead. I played WoW since release date and the experience that I've found on Elysium servers, while not perfect, is far superior to the state of WoW today. If your reason for playing WoW is to endlessly grind a glorified capture the flag game in battlegrounds or sit in a raid dungeon for hours doing almost nothing in the hope of receiving some purple gloves, then maybe I can see why you'd want to lick Blizzard's boots and give them $15 a month to play a 16 year old game that they ruined, but the people talking every day in chat about how it will be so worth it to have slightly better latency and higher realm pop are incredibly annoying. I personally went back to Vanilla WoW because there are places in Azeroth that I remember with extreme fondness. Nights when I just arrived in a new city in real life knowing no one yet, went to the store, stocked up on my favourite food and drink and settled down to a night exploring Feralas or Arathi Highlands until 4am. Exploring Azeroth and reading the stories that have been worked into the quest dialogue gives me much more satisfaction than spamming action buttons until i kill a random PvE boss. Finding a little hidden village or corner of the map that ties into Warcraft III that hardly anybody goes to gives me more of a sense of achievement than collecting a piece of rare digital armour, and I can do those things just as well on Elysium as on a Blizzard server. World PvP requires server pop however and I do love the world PvP here. I haven't been here that long and I've met some amazing people on Elysium's servers already. There is a great community here. If people are excited about WoW Classic that's great, but it's getting really annoying in the run up to release date to be lectured by blizzard fanboys about how immoral I am for playing here and not going over to Classic when it launches. I'm sure this will all stop in a week's time but I'd love to hear from the community managers if they have any plans or projections for keeping their servers running and populated in the next few months and what their plans will be if there is an exodus away. I personally am planning to stay.

    Delete the item shop

    I personally don't have a problem with it. Although I'd never use the item shop and in an ideal world we wouldn't need it, whatever we can do to keep this server alive and populated through the release of WoW Classic and beyond should absolutely be done. I would also consider making a donation to keep the servers running if I received an email asking me to do so.
