In Topic: Incoming legacy servers!

The real solution here licensing.  They COULD license out the right to allow servers of older versions of the game to exist while still protecting their IP, but they're choosing not to.

I'm pretty sceptical about them doing it since it would show in an embarassing way how garbage their last few expansions are since everyone would be playing legacy servers.

This is the real reason they'll never do it.  It would be an admission that they've taken the game in a bad direction.  

If there's one thing that rings true about nearly all large gaming companies like this, it's that their egos are more important than anything else.  

They virtually never admit they're wrong about something unless it's going to cost them a huge amount of customers/$$.

There's a reason it took dot shocks and server crashes for Shaman to get attention from the devs way back when.
