Zandalar Tribe is a uniquely charming server, being one of the only few RPPVP servers it is a staple of the WoW community and the only one of it’s kind in the EU.
However, in recent times we’ve started struggling, we were hit hard by the decline of players; guilds disbanding one after another, large numbers of players transferring or just quitting the game and at times less than 100 people online on horde side. But, despite our server being in a state of freefall there’s been zero intervention from Blizzard… and ours was not the only server.
But wait… we finally see a response from Blizzard, a final attempt to try to save the dying TBC community?
Low and behold, Zandalar Tribe wasn’t even considered, nor was Bloodsail Buccaneers and I’m sure there are a number of others.
What possible justification is there for this? ZT is struggling to survive even with a “medium” population and there’s no way back for us, we’re hemorrhaging people by the day. I just can’t find any sort of consistency:
- Grobbulus the US sister RPPVP server of ZT were on the receiving end of free transfers from every other server.
- Deviate Delight (RPPVP) got free transfers to all kinds of servers.
- Heck even Shazzrah/Mandokir/Dragon’s Call are receiving free transfers, with similar populations to Zandalar Tribe.
- Heartstriker got free transfers with almost 2000 active raiders but Bloodsail Buccaneers didn’t with hundreds less?
Please can we have some kind of answer, some criteria or simply an apology and a resolution - because the atmosphere on these forgotten servers after the transfer news does not bode well for their survival. Give us some kind of life raft, before we all innevitably unsub and lose our love for the game forever.
