Dead realms empty servers low population unbalanced factions in World of Warcraft
Now that thread's OP wanted it locked I would have probably left it but it seems that Ghostcrawler hasn't been doing himself any favours by doing a poor impression of some of our posters by making up ridiculous excuses for the sad state of many realms in WoW.
Blizzard customer: remove low pop servers and give the players free transfers to normal pop servers and problem solved
GC response: If it was truly that simple, don't you think we would have done so? One tiny example: what if someone has your name already?
Blizzard customer: free name change. players would be happy to name change. rather then playing on none pop realm
GC response: With all due respect, I think you're wrong that players will happily change their names.
Blizzard customer: With ALL do respect..you also want the 25$ soo yeaa =/
GC response: Generally speaking, WoW has been successful because players enjoy playing it, not because we gouge them. Players see through that.
Personally I would have no problem changing my name, even though I really like it.
The cost of $250 to move my toons to another more populated realm is too high for me.
My server moved from a Medium population server to a Low pop server, it feels like a ghost town. Weak AH and guild recruiting is next to impossible. CRZ does not fix these problems.
Are more and more server becoming low population or inactive?
Are people transferring to mega servers to get away from low pop servers?
Blizzard, we need more than CRZ to fix low population server problems.
Once upon a time, during one of the golden ages of home-brew
computing, the difference between a high end CPU and a £100
poverty chip was nothing that you couldn't fix with a big fan, some
thermal paste, and maybe a pencil.
