The difference is in the servers. If you ran around for an hour in the private server you'd only notice a few things that are different between it and retail. Most people wouldn't instantly PVP, instantly get over level 10, and monsters generally are the same whether they do 50 damage or 5. So it feels the same.
I'd argue that when it comes to an MMO, the only thing that matters is the server... that's where the game happens.
Evaluating a game based on a rip-off missing half the features is pretty idiotic.
