    Server merge at KR realm

    http://kr.battle.net/wow/ko/blog/280...%B4-2013_04_26


    So it's

    PVP servers : 18->7
    PVE servers : 5->2


    Just for information.

    It seems in Korea, when the player base asks for something they get it because they have tons of local games and Blizz knows they are willing to switch games over these things. In EU or US, we just whine so they don't have to care as much

    Actually it's 9

    Because
    PVP servers:
    15 smaller ones -> 4 bigger ones
    3 already big ones remain the same
    total of 7

    PVE servers:
    5 -> 2
    Total of 2

    Grand total of 9

    Because the Asian Wow is owned by a different company. Basically an Asian gaming company leases the Wow rights off Blizzard. Obviously they are much more prepared to work with their players out there in Asia...

    Maybe the fan base is a little more balanced and a little less - whatever you do it's wrong and we all hate you.

    If they don't merge servers here, people will bitch
    If they merge servers, people will bitch

    Actually that only applies to China. KR wow is run directly by blizzard(or Blizzard Korea to be precise).
    Taiwanese realm is also run directly by blizzard too

    I would quit if I lose the name I've used since Vanilla, don't know how they will manage it. Like Maelle said already "If they don't merge servers here, people will bitch
    If they merge servers, people will bitch"

    Would probably cause a shit storm if that did happen.

    Someone who was in server that others are being merged into gets the priority.

    For example, if it's A,B,C->D

    Someone who had id in D server gets to keep it, the rest from A B C has to change.

    And if everyone remains so protective over their names then they deserve the dead realms they are stuck on.

    Truth is you cant make an omelette without breaking eggs. U cant please everyone.

    Most people agree that making the game playable again is far more important than character names. Its called a business decision. A business decision Blizzard keeps avoiding.
