On the otherhand there's a chance that people who don't want to pay for classic wow might move to VG from lightshope and all the other private servers that are shutting down

I'm sorry but people playing elsewhere and all the other private servers arent even aware of VG's existence, and if they logged in and saw the state/quality of the server they'd just laugh and logout... it's below the standard they are used to

Sad but true  Undecided I also started on VG and moved later to another server because of too few players and no variety of raiding guilds anymore. I had a way better experience there and yes, almost nobodoy knows VG there.

I dont think so. Other servers will still have a vanilla realm, well maintained and good populated with 1-2k players. If ppl want to play vanilla for free they will rather go there.

Off-topic: I modified your posts and removed the slight advertisement for other servers. I do not want to hinder the discussion on-topic though.

I said there's a chance. Not that it was guaranteed. You have no idea what kind of ripples shutting down a popular server can make. When nostalrius went down there was a huge population boom for VG why would that not be possible again? I know the circumstances are a bit different but it's not crazy to believe that it could increase for a bit. However, the retention rate of players is pretty abysmal though but I've spoken my mind on that time and time again.

It's summer time though and the Classic release is soon. That doesn't mean that population decline can be explained thoroughly by one or the other. We'll have to see what is going to happen in a few months.
