This. The nostalgic memory of Vanilla times, if people even have played themselves back then, is a very deceiving one. The most important factor is that every improvement in the game after Vanilla hasn't been around back then, so one wasn't used to the comfort or change it would provide later on. You can hardly turn back on stuff like that, humans are creatures of habit and hate to leave their comfort zone, even if that added comfort changes or worsens the gaming experience in some way.
I do enjoy the Vanilla content a lot, but actually going back and playing on that level is a damn pain in the butt.
Even top streamers who have been streaming the beta on Twitch are whining. While I'm sure there is a group of people out there that will love Vanilla, I doubt it will be even 10% of the crowd that thinks they will lol.
That being said, I'll be leveling my Shadow Priest so I can Mind Control noobs to their deaths again. That, and being able to control your Hunter pet, are the only 2 things in Vanilla that I miss.
