We know we have cross realm, that is not a solution nor does it help, low pop, dead realms.
What about all realms that are very heavily dominated by one faction, where numbers, ratio is literally out of control and insane.
Do we remember back when Blizzard announced, Faction Paid Services ? That was a long time ago, they assured us, they will monitor the servers balancement and ratio's, clearly lied about that.
Servers have been stupidly unbalanced for far to long. Ive yet too see a realm, where they have locked, faction changes, or realm changes too, when it is so far heavily one way, faction heavy.
Wowprogress, has interesting things too look, if you browse through it by typing realms and looking too see how many active raiding guilds there are, on that realm, and how heavily dominated it may be by one faction.
Worst I ever saw, was Thaurissian, it has 58 guilds listed, only 1 is alliance, rest are, horde. I made a lvl 1 toon on there as alliance, I was curious, yep, there basically is none there. Thats a pvp realm, imagine trying to be out in the world doing dailys as ally on that realm.
There are loads and loads of other realms, ridiculously unbalanced.
We have far too many empty, dead, small, low pop realms as well.
We have asked numerous times to merge them, Blizz refuses and relies on paid services for people to initiate, to pay to move, instead of resolving issues themselves. Or ever speaking much about it, ever.
Why not offer these kind of realms, free transfers OFF them, instead of, on a new expansion, now and then we see free transfers too certain dead, low pop realms, to avoid queues on high pop realms... until things calm down, but you will NEVER yet too see free transfers off these dead realms.
Its really sad, too see all these issues unnoticed and ammended, eve n after all these YEARS.
They take far far to long to ever actual do anything worth while, especially on these major important issues for the paying player who enjoys the game, but is missing out on far to much of the actual game experiences because of the lack of population, or guilds, or economy and a combo of all and more.
Xrealms, don't help fix issue at all.
No more band-aid fixes, since band-aids fall off too fast.
You see wow forums often splattered with threads on these issues and yet you barely ever will see a blue post replying, or any actual proper action taken too fix the problems.
