there's a thread up about one in gen. discussion atm. before i started playing wod 4-6 weeks ago, i hadn't touched wow since late vanilla, nearly 10 years prior. so it'd be interesting to revisit something closer to the game i remember. at the same time, my immediate assumption was that there can't be that many people playing, plus whatever the total number of players there are a bunch of these servers to split the amount between them. it souns like my assumption may have been full of shit though based on what i've been reading in that same thread, specifically that there are enough people (at least on the server being discussed) to have to compete for nodes/mobs/etc.

i'll probably look into it either way, but has anyone played on one of these servers for an extended period? i'd appreciate any general info you can provide about the experience. thanks

You won't regret it. Feels very much like vanilla. :)

If you hope to pvp at all, if considering this server at all, you'll want to be Alliance, due to population majority becoming favorable to Horde @ 60, but also means leading to longer BG q times.

@OP: Just so you're aware, retail servers had max pops of 2,500. So just try to put some perspective on that when thinking about, say, farming devilsaur leather or any other prime farming location. Besides the frustrations in that having a really populated server is great.
