There seems to be a recurring theme in which people complain about ganking in CRZ. Why don't you just roll toons on, or move to, a PVE realm? Just to be clear, I have most of my toons on a desolate PVP server where the alliance asshats would rather camp Whitepetal Lake ganking anyone who tries to run dailies than actually play PVE content themselves, so I can relate. You know who they are; they are hiding behind a tree at Halfhill targeting you right now.
I love PVP, but world PVP doesn't do much for me because it is almost never engaged in unless one side has such a lopsided advantage that you can only sit there and die. Like it or not, this is part of PVP realms.
I have a couple of toons on a high pop PVE realm, and it's much more enjoyable overall. No worries when questing, no need to get anxious when playing in contested areas, no 90's camping you in Hillsbrad. You can still do PVP any time you like.
It really strikes me as odd that so many WOW players feel like they have to play on PVP realms so they aren't viewed as wimps when they so clearly don't like any of the core aspects of PVP realms. When I started playing WOW, I rolled on the server a friend of mine played on; it happened to be a PVP realm. Had I known any better, I would have rolled PVE, and stayed there. The irony is that my friend is just as I describe; they like the idea of being on a PVP realm, but aren't situationally aware, aren't terribly good at PVP, and don't really enjoy worrying about getting ganked.
All that said, I have found CRZ to be useful a couple of times: sometimes my friends want to come to my realm to quest because it's too busy on their realm. Other times, I go to their realms so we can blast through dailies in a group I wouldn't find on my server.
Blizzard counts on making $120 extra for every toon you level, and you guys ganking and causing antisocial behavior is hurting their bottom line.
So how about doing something better: cancel your account as you're draining resources.
The levelers will take your spot just fine, and hopefully bring back some order in this chaos called WoW PvP.

Your fun stops at where it ruins the fun of others.
Just like in RL, as MMO communities mimic RL.
Want a game that you can do as you please and always looking out for #1: go masturbate.
I've honestly seen almost no difference in my gameplay, already was on a heavily populated pvp server. Just like before the expansion, saw almost no ganks as leveling (three different characters so far). Seems to be a few more people than usual in the lower level zones, but that's about it. The only thing I've heard from guildies is that leveling herbalism or mining is more painful than usual, with the whole sharing it with other servers thing, haven't actually done it myself though.
I would agree with everything here if...... IF, there wasn't a choice about this when you start. When you roll on a pvp server you have to expect this to happen.
If you don't want to deal with this happening you roll pve. Those levelers as you say have no reason being on a pvp server if all they do is level toons.
This is coming from a pve player. If you don't like random pvp don't roll a pvp server.

Well, it's been like this in every expansion. Nothing new. I would like to say that QQ incorporates the World of Warcraft-experience.
CRZ is by far the weakest reason to quit that MOP offers.

I hate these casual Fridays ruining it for real Fridays.
@Ghostcrawler Mate, don't let the "rep tabard" brigade get you down. We're better off shedding instance only players from the playerbase.according to Greg they don't want to shed any players. So the OP want to go to twitter call Greg out on this and say "come on Greg say what you really want to say - everyone against CRZ 'GET LOST' "Greg Street@Ghostcrawler
@Nemspy Well, we don't want to shed anyone. Concern is that instance-only is convenient short term but causes loss of interest in the long.

If Greg did this it would be for the better, why let these people continue to have hopes anyone cares about what some of this feature is doing to them. Do the right thing and just tell them to go, you'll be doing them a favor and likely Blizzard as well.

With CRZ that no longer is an option for raising alts. You can't blame people being upset if they chose something that existed, then doesn't at a flick of a finger -- especially if they paid extra.
I went ahead and got MoP, and going to test CRZ out after 3 months of updates (30 days free, so not really resubbing). Will have an update on this matter before then.
Just another reason to tack on other reasons to dislike WoW. Enough pile on and guess what happens? They unsub.
This is why certain features r-e-a-l-l-y need to be tested on PTR and other means (e.g., in game poll), especially when changes affect how players choose (and pay) to play.
Xrealm is amazing, zones are alive, there is wpvp occasionally, it's just that much better.
If people think that farming ore/herbs is their #1 concern, they should really question why they play warcraft.
(Back in BC on isle of quel'danas, if a Khorium node spawned, people would literally fight over it for 15 minutes)
ganking and killing people while they are on loading screens isn't pvp.
it's fucking dumb.
I love it, why people are complaining i have NO idea. Just more kills IMO
CRZ is pretty fun. Anybody who whines about either being ganked on a pvp server (lol at that reason to hate CRZ) or they have to farm for peacebloom longer (lol at that reason to hate CRZ).
Anybody who plays on a pvp server and gets ganked and then comes to the forums to complain about being ganked/camped is an idiot and needs to unsub asap. The game already has enough idiots and the WoW community would be better off with those types of players going to play solitaire instead.
