Doubt if you want. I distinctly remember leveling on Firetree and it was common to see people refer to it as VC or DM. I fully believe you never saw it if you only played on one server. I server hopped a few times a year back then, and there were certainly differences in culture between servers.
This is how I always understood it. I was calling it DM before dire maul was released…
That’s interesting. This wasn’t the case on Silvermoon. DM was deadlines, and dire maul was DM-E, DM-N, DM-W
I always referred to it as Diremines (for DM) and Deadmaul (for DM).
do people not know there are THREE Diremauls.
LFG Diremaul…ugh what ONE
That’s why it’s DM for deadmines DM west/east/noth for the others.
Yeah, no one would just say “LFG DM” and mean Dire Maul, you would always say which one you were doing. Thus it makes no sense at all to say VC since saying just DM makes it obvious you want Deadmines.
I think it’s hilarious seeing the same arguments from 15 years ago being rehashed and revisited now.
Maybe dude. I don’t totally doubt that. It does sound weird though.
I never saw this argument back then tho. I always was LFG DM north
Just as there were people referring to VC as VC before Dire Maul was even released… (Yes, it was a thing even then.)
Kinda like how someone saying VC would have ALWAYS meant Deadmines… Your own logic here is flawed.
Played on Thunderhorn in vanilla 04-onwards
Deadmines was VC
My logic is just fine.
This issue will be settled around the same time we all agree how to pronounce “.gif”.
Deadmines = DM
Dire maul = DME, DMW, DMN, Tribute
No one does all of DM. People aren’t looking to do all 3 wings in a single setting and if they are they will notify people.
I played on two servers in Vanilla (Laughing Skull-PvP, Illidan-PvP); both of which people would cry out for everyone to call it VC – uncommonly saw people use cardinal directions but it did happen.
After a while I would recruit people in Westfall for a “cookie run” as we all know who the real final boss of Deadmines was.
Hey, I’d totally call it a cookie run over calling it VC!
Dm is deadmines in westfall. Dm is diremaul in trade chat.
Hard g like in graphic.
