World of Warcraft's biggest private server, Nostalrius, closed down last night. After being slapped with a cease-and-desist order from Blizzard Entertainment last week — private servers, according to Blizzard, violate the company's terms of use — the team of volunteers that kept the server afloat announced it was forced to close it down. At 11 p.m. "server time" on April 10, Nostalrius disconnected its players and shut down for good.

The owners of Nostalrius' 150,000 active accounts took the news hard, and their support for the popular server — which allowed fans to experience an older, "vanilla" version of World of Warcraft — only strengthened in its last hours. Yesterday, several fans took to YouTube, Reddit, Twitter and other places to share pictures from the frontlines of Nostalrius' closure.

In the days leading up to the shutdown, some players who didn't want to wait until its official end embarked upon a "suicide march." Participants trudged in a straight line from the game's horde capital Orgrimmar to Thunder Bluff, where they jumped to their deaths from its namesake peak. The walk across several of the game's regions took over an hour, according to a participant on Nostalrius' subreddit.
