Not at all. Community wise best choice, tho we had our fair share of the usual suspects and some other serious attention puppies. We basically had a Trump also, he was popular, but had a good spot on my ignore. His greatest achievement was getting half the server to send him peacebloom.
It was never expected that the transition to TBC was done in such poor manner. A lot of players regret not being able to go back to the better ERA life and it just added to the situation.
It was also expected that a much larger part of the community would stay with ERA and not move to TBC, well it was my assumption and I was gravely mistaken.
On retail RP realm is connected with PVE. It is only fair to expect the same from ERA, sure not in the beginning, but at a time like this? HW will be kept up for less than 100 players, soon enough less than 30 when the HC project is over and fresh is on.
Was this not also the situation of AD before it got connected much later than other realms?
