    Most dead servers on WoW?

    I remember at the end the cata logging on one of my old chars and only finding 4 people in org with /who org
    Are there still any dead servers?

    I don't think they will do anything now.

    My prediction for their next MMO is that the concept of realms will go. You login, and new world instances are dynamically spawned depending on the number of people online (so at 4am there might only be a dozen or so world instances; at 7pm on a Wednesday there would be hundreds). As soon as you group up with people you are all automatically and seamlessly moved to the same world instance (same as CRZ works now). You'd have a 'preferred' world instance (hidden from you) that you would be put in to when logging in, so that at busy times you'd tend to see the same people in the cities and out in the world. Something like that anyway.

    Everything is pointing to something like that anyway - CRZ, cross-realm raids, cross-realm friends lists etc.

    Just think how easy guild recruitment would be - no more server transferring required. Any faction imbalance would be minimal. The money they lose on server transfers would be recouped by the vastly reduced costs of maintaining multiple realms most of which are dead or half-dead.

    You could try Anub-Arak(US) alliance side.

    I think there's like 25 or so alliance 90s total on the entire server. Horde side isn't much better.

    It's a good concept, but goes against human nature.

    Blizzard really needs to hire a psychologist and sociologist to understand the human condition and their bonds.
    From the #1 Cata review on Amazon.com: "Blizzard's greatest misstep was blaming players instead of admitting their mistakes. They've convinced half of the population that the other half are unskilled whiners, causing a permanent rift in the community."
    Blizzard's blame game in action: Deleting 6,100+ of Kevyne's posts and threads from the WoW forums.

    I'll check it out.
    I want Warrior Tier3 but its WAY too expensive on my server's BMAH

    I would actually save money paying 50$ for transfers between the 2 servers

    Just watch out, last time i checked (might have changed) you were only able to move 10k when server xfering. if the server is that dead you might have a real hard time getting the gold you need on the other side to even get the minimum bid for the items you want.

    There is no gold restrictions on guild banks for server transfers.

    Cap without guild bank is 50k
    Which is enough to buy helm + shoulders on a dead server

    Medivh - Horde side is pretty bad, outnumbered 5:1 along with a damn low pop at this point.

    They ARE doing something. They are collecting ridiculous amounts of money from frustrated players transferring their characters away. Dead servers(really most servers offer a greatly diminished gameplay experience long before they would be considered actually "dead") are probably the most lucrative aspect of server transfers, especially since you cant transfer characters in bulk so unless players want to abandon all their alts it gets really expensive. working as intended. $$$
