Medium shouldn’t be the standard for merges don’t worry.
Dunno about the overall EU situation but I’m fairly sure there are high pop FR servers linked with other servers which made me believe that the goal was to reach something similar to a full pop server.
If you end up transfering from a dead realm after they finally do something about dead realms then they failed their stated goals pretty hard
@Deed: The size listings are not completely static as part of them is activity related and they are also relative to other realms, so there are some realms that change size fairly often, a few even several times a day.
@Vintoleth: Some things done, some things gone… and still lots of things to do. Blizzard has managed to connect somewhat more US than EU realms and has done quite a bit in other regions, too. Even so, there are still many realms that need to get connected. Ghostlands / Dragonblight has not come up yet, but Blizzard has been only making announcements on weekly basis so we do not see very far ahead even though we know more will be done.
Some connections have been received with joy, others with rage. Perhaps the most noteworthy thing is that Blizzard has used larger realms more during program 2 than they did during connection program 1.
@Neyla: Blizzard is creating some quite complex combinations, so there is (in my opinion) a fairly high chance this is just “Stage 1” as there has already been at least one connection that (due to other connections already done and couple of megasized singles) went from “Low” + “Low” to “Low” total and will also be expanded upon.
Been on Ghostlands since the day BC launched, honestly gotta say by now it definitely lives up to the name- rarely ever seen anyone that isn’t on another server in cities/zones at this point
Haven’t seen too many of the original players from this server either, most have moved off to other realms, classic or just quit playing completely. Sad to see how much it’s died over the years as it was a pretty busy hub back in the day, basically the last remaining active member of my guild as well atm as the game has lost it’s interest point for many so I’ve missed out on quite a bit. plus, the end game aspect of raiding was definitely more productive and lighthearted with guildies around over randoms- PUGs tend to be a nightmare to sort out without chaos now.
fingers crossed for this server merge on Wed making it seem a bit more lively though
Based on our current server populations this is really good news for the Alliance. However our Horde population has been struggling for a while now, and I don’t see how merging an Alliance heavy realm (from what wowprogress reports) is going to help the Horde player base.
