What guild were you in just prior to joining Vigil? Insomniacs? Are you the same Fred?
Oh man, Mal'ganis was the first server I played on in vanilla, and I stayed there till mid BC. I remember lots of people on that server (alliance side), and some damn good guilds too. I remember when <Goon Squad> took the Theramore FP master and held him ransom and they posted it on the forums asking for someone to buy something off the neutral AH. I have my old main there a 70 rogue. Maybe Ill give it a shot.
I moved to Mal'Ganis about 4 months ago to join my friends guild (horde side) and in that time I think I've seen a total of maybe 2 alliance characters out in the world. I flew over their shrine and I think I saw one person. Mal'Ganis Alliance is far beyond dead.
Hoping to help jump start a good cause! Let's get something going.
if you look at charts these days, you couldn't find a single server that is somewhat Balanced.
it's either full Alliance or Full Horde
...at this point it's almost guaranteed that "war in warcraft" is garrosh getting on his incompetent podium to declare yet another group his enemy for the crime of breathing his air, alliance saying this is horde favoritism, and the more....special....yes.. let's go with special... horde players seeing garrosh as a god because he lets them attack the alliance players who keep saying that out being led by a moron is horde favoritism.
Bleeding hollow is fairly balanced from what I heard, not terribly full of talented players, but balanced.
