man i miss vanilla.
There are oldschool Vanilla pure servers out there. They're not Blizzard stuff, but they exist.
I think people realize the fun they had in the old expansions, but when they go back to play it, they miss a lot of the new features they're used to having now.
There was great challenge with old school raids, the kinds of challenge never seen again. Tier 3 Naxx was the most difficult raid instance in the history of WoW. The raid encounters have been tuned down significantly from that point and I really don't think that people have the patience, dedication, skill, and/or time to go back to something like that again.
Other than that, there wasn't much else to offer for the game aside from battleground PVP grinding, which was just a timesink to try and climb to the highest rank.--
