A few of us tried with no luck
Try setting up a discord, finding people similar to yourselves who are sick of nothing being done for low pop servers and try to co-ordinate your efforts.
They often ignore RPers as well until we swarm them, they don’t ignore us then
What’s worse, many guilds not just on Ghostlands, but many other servers have already moved once, maybe twice before and stand in the same problem, because Blizzard can’t keep their playerbase.
Some communication from Blizz on this would be nice.
Soon 8 months from Blizzcon and nothing .
I understand the virus and other things but this is a joke .
This needs more action and before SL .
It sure does, but I don’t see it happening.
You’d think after ‘pestering’ them this much about this issue you’d at least get a respond on: social media, reddit or the forums but nothing.
And with Shadowlands so close… the entire focus will be on that and issues like these will be swept under the rug because try to sell an expansion with things like this around.
looks at silent guilds
Desperate bump! Or give me money to transfer all my chars that’s fine to
8 months after “the quick chat” we finally got news .
Finally, now they need to announce which realms.
You did it, Vintoleth!!
So happy to wake up and see this news this morning! Fingers crossed we all get more people to play with and life breathed back into our dead realms!
I hope they give a list of all realms that will be included in merges at some point so that we’ll know if our own will be merged at some point or not.
Great work to everyone who’s raised awareness, added their voices and done what they could to get the message out there. And of course, big thanks to Vintoleth for putting together this megathread and keeping the message live. Your work is so very much appreciated
All hail Vintoleth!!!
Very happy to hear the news. I sincerely hope my home realm of Earthen Ring/Darkmoon Faire will be among the realms that gets merged.
There it is boys! Love you Bluzzard
This is actually it. My guild is talking about a server transfer away from a dead realm (which shows as medium on the serverbrowser) to one of the three largest ones in our region.
A friends guild just recently did the same.
At the beginning of BFA, Aversion was still on our realm. Ever since they left (because the AH couldn’t support world 10 raiding), 4 guilds followed.
It’s just, the longer Blizzard does NOT work to fix that problem, the more money they earn. It’d be stupid to actually even attempt to fix it. At least from a business perspective. And let’s be real, Blizzard doesn’t care anymore about what’s right or wrong, what’s good or bad, they care about what earns the most money.
Didnt you read the news?
They arent attempting to fix it, they are fixxing it in the next 2 months!
Are they? I’ve read about
That isn’t fixing the issue. That’s fixing 17 out of 71 dead servers (if we only look at EU english for easier numbers).
Medium servers are dead. Low servers are dead. New Player servers have always been dead.
Unless we get more information about the entire thing, and most importantly a statement about servers that aren’t “low population” in the server browser, I’ll stick to my previous statement of it not being in Blizzards interest to fix the issue.
Also there’d be the entire thing of simply mashing together all the low pop servers and calling it a fix, when in reality it would change little to nothing. Low pop servers would need to get merged with much largers servers for them to fix anything.
I consider myself a realistic person, i dont expect them to connect realms in a way that after its done, only high pop realms remain.
I find it reasonable to expect that for example, were i am, that is a 3 way connected low pop will be connected with a medium pop realm.
But i can be wrong and they surprise me by doing bigger connections.
That’s precisely what I’m expecitng as well. And that’s what I’m expecting to be a bandaid on a gushing wound at best. It’ll look like they attempted to fix the issue, but in reality it changes little to nothing.
Of course having only high pop realms remaining isn’t for everyone, but having at least roughly 10 guilds clearing mythic each content on each connected realm isn’t too much to ask for, or is it?
Well, let’s see if this also means in two years we’re back at square one.
At least I hope when that happens it doesn’t take another 7 years.
