Crowd/queues is one of the most horrible things in the world. Stop bringing this in video game.

But that's not to say a new player who isn't as ruthless/fast of a clicker and sneaky with a camera won't just quit the game and go to a game that can better manage having multiple players in zones.
Again as people have pointed out numerous times, people and competition in themselves aren't the issue. The real issues are:
1) Technical issues
2) The style of gameplay WoW represents makes having more people a bad thing, not a good thing, in zones. Until this is fixed first (and not as an afterthought), artificially pumping in people from other servers is a bad way to go.

crz is the biggest shit that blizzard developed in the last year
it fucks up brawlers guild .. and now the arena in DMF .. i mean it's almost impossible to win right now, but with even more people it's just starting to get retarded
more people more lag .. no reason .. oh wow it doesn't look empty .. well sometimes i like it when i can do a quest withtout 5 guys sittng on a big mount in a questmob ..
I understand that this is something that people disagree about and emotions can get away from you at times. That said, take a deep breath and go back through your post to be sure that stuff that's personally insulting toward those with another opinion gets deleted before hitting the button to post it. Thanks. Better you take it out than me.
A bit of civility and respect for others opinions goes a long way toward getting any respect in return. Overly hostile, profane and insulting posts are a sign that people don't really have anything to say. Profanity is best served out in very small doses.

I think people just got spoiled by Cataclysm and forgot what the world in an MMO was like. So yeah, if you want an empty world, I'd recommend Skyrim instead of trying to make WoW dead for the rest of us. I actually enjoy interacting with people.

This sums up my thoughts quite well. WoW is not a single-player RPG.
Yesterday at DMF we had a Barthilas vs Frostmourne battle for the arena chest. It was a blast. Before x-realm there would have only been 1-2 people. Now there are people in the arena up for a fight even when the chest isn't around.
It was also refreshing to see so many people running around at the faire attractions.

Some people don't want a dead world, but a world with not so many other people. This is why many of them willingly play on low-pop servers.
It's not your place to tell them that they are wrong etc.
CRZ makes this impossible, because it takes away this choice. Imo, it's definitely one of the worst things that happened to WoW in the past few years, and the reason why I almost exclusively stay in Pandaria.
news flash, it's not your island. and thank god for crz, the place was empty last month most of the time... really didn't fit the faire theme it has it's supposed to be packed with ppl.
Since 9/11 the NSA has spent at least $70,000,000,000. The NSA has admitted lying about their effectiveness, but has definitely stopped one plot: transferring $8,500 to a Somali terror group. Even if we sweep aside the extensive lawbreaking, ethical problems, economic damage, and abuse of power, the fact remains that the NSA is useless.
For example, instead of making the bunny a drop, making it a very low chance possible roll drop like LFR. Anyone on the island can join into the fight and the rabbit scales up just like the other rares. Adding "Cross-Faction" grouping would be another great step, and finally they need to just remove the "tap" mechanic as we know it from most quest mobs. The first person to attack "taps" the loot, but if another attacks it they both get credit. I don't care if some loser will abuse the system by just running around another guy questing throwing up a dot or something before running off, it's still one more DOT I have helping me kill the mob then I had a few seconds ago. It's a win/win and stops the idea of us having to fight each other for anything in the game.
But this would only happen if Blizzard was smart, which these days, they are not. They are obsessed with dragging out game content, and I am pretty sure GC is bitter over his design choices of Cataclysm 4.0 failing so badly.
Something breaking down the barriers between servers nearly completely, but without having to do server merges & deal with the resultant QQ.
I like DMF being populated, it looks cool and seems more like a faire to me.
Bad luck for people hunting Darkmoon Rabbit but Blizzard are obviously happier for that pet to be rare instead of farmable on low-pop servers.
"Lol u angry cuz ther r ppl in mmo"
So all the players I saw everywhere on my high pop. server before CRZ didn't really exist. It's all my imagination!
So basically i should of been more serious about farming the Darkmoon Dominator.. Cause now its gonna suck to get and be so spread out..
yeah i never post, i just read... but if you are a developer reading this, i can't stress this enough: please remove cross realm feature. It is absolutely horrible.
