Welcome to the living breathing WORLD of Warcraft
The game is 8 years old and has more populated world zones than all other MMO's combined

When challenging a Kzin, a simple scream of rage is sufficient. You scream and you leap.
Over the last 10 years, Blizzard has taken over $10bn from MMO players. Take a look around your game...do you see $10bn worth of content available to you? Do you see even a tiny fraction of that in relevant content? Now ask me again why I dislike what Blizzard has done to the MMO industry.
I enjoy Cross-Realm alot, brings a bit more life into dead zones. Okay, maybe also means you wont be able to do quests just as fast but atleast you see people. I find this a good idea, and the only ones whom seem to dislike this idea alot is the ones whom picked PvP realms. You already knew that there would be ganking on your server, cross-realm didn't change much of it, still gankers and campers. If you dislike it too much, then Blizzard do offer free realm transfer now and then, move to a PvE realm.
Gankers can't be avoided, gankers are created by gankers. Ancient rule back from TBC. You can just hope some people are more directed towards their goal, but still, it's a PvP realm. "If it's red, it's dead" - "If it's blue, fuck you" - basic mentallity of many PvP servers.
Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!
Roses are red, mana is blue. Suramar Guards, Will always find you!
Three expansions in dust; Cata: 1-2 hrs, MoP: 40-60 min, WoD: 60 min (own experience).
You are on a pvp server and you whine about being ganked? Back in vanilla I opened my first char on a pvp server and got owned a lot. I understood that its just something I don't want to deal with , so I did the sensible thing and rolled on a PvE server which I play on ever since. And who would have thought , that solved my problem -.- Just another whiner to the qq bag.
What did you do, roll on a heavily unbalanced PvP server, hoping to get to 90 and gank the few enemies you see? Then CRZ came, and sides were even, and now you can't handle it?
Roll on a PvE server, where you don't have to deal with it. Or hit 20, head to SW/Org, and LFG till 90.
There are several ways of dealing with a ganker:
Call for help from the guild/general/friends.
Log on to your main to deal with it.
Leave the area and level someplace else.
Sign up for a battleground or dungeon.
Log out and do something else for a while.

Granted the OP didn't start the thread in the best way, nor is this the area to provide the best feedback to Blizzard. That said, the lack of support here is disappointing, not surprising. The ganking of low levels from max levels, isn't pvp. It's just someone bored and is interested in being a bully. The camping of the Dark portal is a good example of that.
Now pvp, I support. Bring it on in Pandaria where the level difference isnt that much. I dont really listen to the qqs in chat there. But the sitting on top of Thrallmar Inn as Alliance and moonfiring down on lvl 60s? Where's the sport? The good gamemanship?
Doesn't exist apparently. That is why I dont support CRZ.
WildStar -Mechari Medic, Draken Stalker
GW2 - Ranger
All these suggestions are just stupid... If you are questing a zone bring your 90 in that zone and handle the issue of being camped.

...Made it through 9 years of wow...
And world PvP was not isolated to max level zones. Hillsbrad? Crossroads? Tons of PvP fun. And those did not start by people crying on forums for getting ganked. People who played on PvP servers actually like to PvP, so when someone called for help - people came.
In today's age, most people on PvP servers don't actually like to PvP. If someone calls for help, they ignore them and continue to PvE.......which baffles me.
Instead of complaining about the gankers, you should be complaining about how useless people in your faction are when it comes to really doing some PvP. At least, that's my opinion
Me and a guild mate has attacked Stormwind three times this week now and aim on doing so tomorrow as well, we kill whatever player we find no matter if they are low leveled or high leveled in hopes they will bring more.
It's someone who seeks out low levels and then flees if they get their main or friends I don't understand.
thats exactly the same reason i stopped , before CRZ the realm i was leveling / playing on was more dead then alive so it didn't matter it was a pvp realm it was the only way to be able to play with IRL friends. now after leveling 10 chars to 85 they make this big change and the only comment people can give is move pve fine but don't expect me to pay 11 times 20 euro to continue playing on a pvp and pay monthly fee on top. that is just not worth the money. give peole the option to dissable PVP while questing / farming / grinding not every player is in the game for PVP.
It's weird. At first... I had no sympathy for people who roll on a PvP server. It was their choice to play "red=dead". That said, we keep hearing about how CRZ is leading to long term corpse camping and it's sad. No one wants to be camped like that. I fell for you OP. Unfortunately, your options have been laid out in front of you.
1. Find friends or guildies to aid you when you are being ganked.
2. Run with friends on a PvE server so you are pulled there. (though, if you aren't in a group... I don't think this is a worthwhile option. So take it with a grain of salt)
3. Server Transfer.
4. Suck it up.
Some of these may not be possible and others may not be ideal. Unfortunately, this is the position you have been put in.
My suggestion (though, it may not do anything) is to head to the official forums, find a post about CRZ and leave feedback (note: Constructive Feedback). Don't just go in saying that CRZ is "Fucking Bullshit and it should be removed." Go in with a well thought out plan and explain why this is creating a less than ideal atmosphere. Give Blizzard good reasons as to why CRZ should be re-tooled. It may not lead to anything, but it's worth a shot.
players who have bin killed in world pvp should get some kind of immunity to be able to hearthstone out of the area if they don't want to get involved. this to avoid corpse camping
I understand that you made the mistake of rolling on a PvP server since they pretty much turned into PvE servers for the past few years. Now that PvP servers are starting to have PvP again, people in your situation are in a tough spot. Maybe Blizz will allow some free PvP-> PvE transfers for people who were caught in your situation. That would be the ideal situation.
I don't think that you should request PvP to stop on a PvP server because you don't like to PvP.
