    So i like private servers, i know that it requires the real game and mods it. So i was looking at WoW Private Servers, so how do you play the WOW PS?

    You get an account for the server then change the realmlist.wtf (it's a normal text file , you replace the original URL (blizzards server) with the URL of the Private server) and then you just login (ingame). [​IMG]

    Trial version should work , I did it with a trial version and my brother played on a P server with his trial version only some hours ago. [​IMG]

    get WOW, doesn't have to be retail can be downloaded, get the patches as well. go to wowstatus.net nad just follow some of the links around. Download WOWFE so that you can organise and launch your servers. and its pretty simple from there

    I tried WoWscape today and it was fine. The server itself is heavily populated and doesn't suffer from the common illness from private servers (crashes, broken quests or items, etc.). It has four realms: Blizzlike, Blizzlike-high, Fun and Instant-60.
    - Blizzlike has Blizz-like (doh) rates for EXP and loot, but, amazingly as it sounds, you start in lvl60...
    - Blizzlike-high, well, x8 in EXP and drops, but still keeping the same "Blizzard-like" atmosphere, meaning you'll get only what the monster originally dropped. Don't expect a super-1337 gear on your first kill [​IMG]
    - Fun... I didn't much play in fun, because Blizzlike was too fun for me... But it was really laggy, because it was the highest populated realm in the server.
    - Instant-60... dunno. It's basically the same as Blizzlike, I guess, but with less "Blizzlike" feeling... And it's also PVP, IIRC.

    Overall, it's a nice server. I would have played on Blizzlike-high (because it's the best when it comes to "a true WoW experience", but I got a high latency in it -- ~300ms was the max I could handle. The same goes for Toxic WoW. I have never been able to enter the Mid-drop server, which is in the EU.

    Just pay the monthly fee if you really like the game. It's totally worth it [​IMG] Or buy GuildWars and play for free xD

    PS: Just to be clearer, I had lag peaks because of the distance between the server and I: I'm in Europe, while the servers are in the States. If you play from the USA, you should be perfectly fine and safe [​IMG]

    Wow, I might actually check this game out. The monthly fees have always repelled me. And you still have to enter your credit card details for the trial, so that's a no go. Guess it depends if I have time then!
