find someone on a pve server to invite u to a group mabye ?
Yes, I did take that into consideration. Sever populations are already horribly unbalanced, and if such a solution would cause such a mass exodus off pvp servers I would say that evidences a larger problem. How is not giving people a window to opt out when something so large is being changed because you're afraid that so many people *would* take that choice not a sign that something is wrong that people wouldn't want to stay around?
And you would be making another problem even worse for something of your own personal gain. That's not evidence of a larger problem. We don't make a solution that will worsen another problem. That's really really dumb.
This is why I stand by my suggestion to define and regulate world PVP. Fighting level neutral opponents while questing/exploring etc. can be a lot of fun. Getting killed in 1 button push by a player you didn't even know was there is frankly, retarded. I think Blizzard would do themselves a favor by inserting some rules & regulations into world PVP (kinda like they did a LOOOONG time ago into battlegrounds) to make world PVP compelling to both parties.
The problem isn't even wpvp, that may be cool with players of similar level. The problem is getting spawn camped for anywhere from 5 minutes to 6 hours and having entire zones taken out of the picture. I don't want competitive wpvp to go, or even CRZ's necessarily to go. But this crap ganking is terrible. I have played on this server on and off throughout every expansion and patch of wow, ganking has never been anywhere close to this bad on my server. If blizzard is so scared about low population areas then merge the dang severs
The restaurant reference needs to stop being used as it is completely different. Restaurants have no progression involved, and you can walk out at any time, or even punch the a-- who blew smoke in your face. In ganking there is no punch and with progression there is no leaving.

CRZ WAS NOT intended to fix realm populations. The issues that come up is money, character names, guild names etc etc. Really Merging servers isn't just like waving a magic wand and being fixed.Like....? Overpopulation? Merge the lower population realms that needed CRZ in the first place
Neither are CRZ's

They don't fix anything except wpvp at the cost of other annoyances
"Nice try, but no. The restaurant in question had ~300 smoker rooms with 1 or 2 smokers in them each for 8 years, but suddenly decided to corral the smokers and non-smokers in 40 rooms. And nobody wants them to stop smoking. People just want the 300 rooms back, like they ALWAYS had."
Except, they DIDN'T corral the non-smokers into the smoking rooms, they simply took down the walls separating the 300 individual smoking rooms and made it one BIG smoking room. You are the one who CHOSE to sit in a smoking room, even if there was nobody else sitting there. You could have STILL sat in the non-smoking rooms(ie, PvE servers) which STILL exist, and which are STILL totally separate from the smoking(PvP) rooms, so no, all the non-smoking rooms exist, if you were a non-smoker, you should have sat there, and not sat in an empty smoking room under the WRONG assumption that you would never see a smoker in there. You knew FROM THE START that sitting in a smoking room meant you COULD have smokers near you, even if it was unlikely.
I interpret it as blizzard initially trying to make experiencing wow with more players more fun. Thats basically what they said they were trying to do. They instituted better wpvp which is good, competition for resources (good), and ganking out the flipping a-- (hmmm)
Referencing to that smoker thing just makes you seem strange. If I was in a smoker's restaurant and someone was sitting there blowing smoke in my face (the equivalent of ganking) they could be thrown out of the restaurant... or punched... but probably the first one. So with this comparison are you suggesting we throw gankers out of the realm?

You were implying Gankers suddenly were created via CRZ.Yes you've summed up what I said.... why?
