Burning Crusade Classic Realm Consolidation Coming August 10

You can’t be serious!
I hope they open 2 new PvE realms to take off the pressure from those 3 at Launch. Else we’ll not play but first sit in a Queue to log in and then stand in line in-game to figth for every node, mob and Quest objective.
Or I hope for enough PvE players to take rhe new PvE => PvP transfer.


  • Keep LFD, Dual spec, Race and Faction changes in Wrath Classic (but not at launch)

  • Give 2 Era servers for TBCC

  • Let the RP servers survive … or give a new, non-fresh PvE realm for transfer

My thought, too.

These Realms would be overcrowded, especially on Release, and a lot of people would complain about having to wait to login…

I hope our RP Realms stay, i do not want to play on such a huge realm.
However, Blizzard is doing a lot of stuff to NOT have to connect realms in Wrath.

Don`t think it will happen at the moment

again, @Kaivax: please leave the rp servers alone. otherwise we will be homeless as well as many other players who will come back to wotlk!

What connection?
In France and Russian there is only one PvE Server, Spain has only a PvP Server and Portugal and Italy do not even have a realm. In DACHL we have four PvE Realms from them there is one RP Realm that is the only Low Population realm the rest is at least medium.
Except the Russian Chromie the only PvE Realms that are on Low Pop are the RP Realms and they do not even close the only Russian PvE Realm despite closing the Rest of their PvP Realms except Пламегор (Flamegor) as they are on low too.
So please can the german and english RP Servers get their exception too?

You’re so rigth. We will even agree to people using the RP servers as overflow, when all three English PvE servers go Full with queues at launch.

We’ve updated the original post to reflect that we’ve decided to keep Hydraxian Waterlords intact, and make it the preferred realm in this region for RP.

We will soon open Free Character Transfers from all other realms in the region to Hydraxian Waterlords, so that any players who now wish to move back to the realm may do so.

Great stuff, listening to feedback! :slight_smile: Can you also consider opening Firemaw transfers for accounts with one or more max level character on it already? Feel free to strip transfering characters of gold, if economy abuse is the reasoning behind the transfer lock for these accounts. Thanks

Okay but Celebras? Does that mean we germans have now transfer all to an english server?
I mean we did not wanted without reason to have Celebras.

You Germans have Venoxis, which has grown in size. Either that (guessing it will be default) or an English server if you want to play on an RP server I will assume.

So if i’m reading this correctly, you plan on destroying RP-PVP and make us choose between a pvp server or a RP-PVE? I don’t know about how the rest of the community feels about this but you can’t just tell us we need to swap our play style or “make do” with a normal pvp! to keep things fair you have to cater for everyone!

It’s a lose-lose for Blizz here if they have to do this. Either the target won’t be PvP, or it won’t be RP. Can’t have both, and the same can be said in the opposite direction if Hydraxian moved to us on ZT.

I appreciate the heads up, at least. People can still log in a while before the 10th and move their characters.

Seems more like a lose/lose for us RP players more then anything

Thanks, I completely forgot that I like both world pvp and RP…

:man_facepalming:

Thats my point!! sure we can play on a PVP server but then the majority of the server wouldn’t be RP, unless of course the community comes together to decide a new home but then that shouldn’t be our job!

Maybe if all RP servers closed. Good luck finding any significant RP community there (and the people that left ZT didn’t go all to the same server in the first place).

We’re doing ok in ZT, we have this lovely little community from everyone that’s left.
we all still raid when we can, trade with each other instead of the AH its really fun.

But another issue that has just come up, everyone’s names are taken over on HW this is just not going to be a fun experience

I mean, we are doing 2x ZA per week, 1x Kara and generally 1x ZG and/or Gruul in between when we feel like it.

Not to mention the Isle of Quel’Danas! This is a real server effort and we are close to unlock the badge vendor. It hurts to see this all go away… Everyone put so much energy in it.

And as you said, many already checked HW for names and they are mostly taken (mines included). So I don’t know where to go now… half of my chars will be nameless there.

While I’m happy that HW is staying up, I think this is bloody unfair for the people of Celebras and Zantdalari Tribe


Keep all three RP servers!

Is it possible to keep names according to played hours per char?
I don’t want to lose Rivenhorn over someone’s alt which is never played…

(no offense to my brothers intended)

I just looked, there is indeed a Rivenhorn on HW.
