Yes, stopped playing since on a dead realm
I'm not certain why this needed to be revived again after several months of inactivity. And discussion about GW2 is off-topic anyway.
Since connected realms are now nearly upon us the premise of the OP is largely irrelevant.
In any case, closing. Feel free to discuss connected realms in any of the threads already open about it or start a new one if there's something new to say about it.
The cake is now an alternative fact.
