First off, Hello there.
Now to the point: Unless you connect realms further, you force gamers to migrate 1-2 main character by paying for it, which is not fair. While leaving all their other characters behind. A lot have quit the game as such, others have characters stuck behind paid realm transfers. Others refuse to be forced to migrate and endure.
You should really do something about the Low pop realms on Retail.
I’ve made plenty topics on this matter, suggesting you either connect my realm to Stormscale (where most of my friends and other realm guild leaders migrated a few of their characters) or at least open free migration, and give us an option to move and you can shut down these 6 pointlessly connected servers.
In the current state of things, just few people can monopolize an entire realm economy… ( 6 connected realms to be exact) and theres no chatter in trade chat, no groups being formed, minimal social interaction. there’s no possibility to do Mythic progression untill x-realm opens, recruitment is low, as people just quit or leave. You’d think there’s an advantage for such realms as you could get World rares easier, BUT they share world with the High population realms, which camp everything. Worst possible experience given. A full section of gamers forgotten and their pleas ignored. Uncool. Very very uncool.
