Just curous to see everyone's opinions on Private Servers. Do you support them, or do you think they are wrong?
In my opinion, I think they are alright. IF the PS3 and Wii can have free online, then Blizzard could too. Even if they had to charge money, it should not be $15 a month. XBOX Live which is an amazing online service costs just $6 a month, and you can do a lot more than play one game.
What are your thoughts on the private servers though?
Reminder: It is alright to discuss private servers, but do not provide any specific information, links, or support for them!
Yeah, I agree with Private Servers. You pay the price for the WoW CD (€20, but I got mine for €2. GameStop pwnz), and I would be glad to pay a once-off €50 for a CD. Look at Guild Wars, that's going great with no monthly fees.
I stole someone else's account (knowing a sucker that actually pays per month pwnz), and I only play for about an hour per day.
Yes theres many free games, blizzard is just greedy, diablo 2 sold ALOT of copies and it was so popular(and free) so i guess they knew people would love them enough to pay per month, Greedy Baztards ahhaha Private servers are fun also, you can join with diferent exp/drop rates etc. its alot more fun :P(I Find.)
truthfully, i'm a GM on 2 different private servers, however i still play WoW and pay 15$ a month, because i like going on with all the other guys, without hackers or lamers, i really enjoy the official servers too, its more fun having the most recent updates, especially since 2.01 came out
