    If the person created the character and never, ever logged in as that character, the name will be taken but never show in the list on the armory. That could likely be what this person has done with your desired name.

    Just lower the Sub fee now (not remove) just lower it a bit from say 8.99 to 4.99 or something. This would claw back a few lost players who have went to the f2p mmo's and found that the f2p mmo's can offer the same experience for less money and often get more updates that WoW (a paid sub mmo that still has micro transaction system).

    They really need to make WoW more competitive with the current market if not this downhill spiral of subs they are going through will just continue. A Band-aid fix like joining realms is not enough.

    You're right, but people have been leaving medium/low pop servers for high pop servers for a while now. That and subs being down are the reasons why some servers look like ghost towns.

    Find Server A that has high Horde population and Low Alliance population.

    Find Server B that is the same type as Server A and has low Horde population and high Alliance population.

    Join server A and B together.

    Imbalance ratios balance out!....for awhile.

    Decreased subscriptions is certainly a factor, and not shocking at all with the wait between each patch and the staleness of MoP... if I wasn't still raiding, I'd probably have quit a long time ago. I log in now to raid and then log off immediately after.

    But I know on my server, nearly every major progressive raiding guild transferred off to some popular server that everyone else was going to. My guild shot up to number one on the server for a while since all the competition left.

    I know everyone wants everything sooner, rather than later, but the fact remains that it is coming. I'd rather them take their time and try to get it right. You'd be more pissed off if they pushed it out and messed up the one feature you're looking forward to.

    This means If you are playing on Horde side in a low RP or PVP-RP realm, you are pretty much f***ed.

    With connected realms in play I really hope they'll get rid of CRZ.

    I fully agree with you there, but, as said in the quote I used above what you quoted from my post there, they shouldn't word it this way, as it comes across as being shipped with 5.4, while it isn't.

    So... Blizzard basicly saying there is 5.5 patch coming and this will be one of the features that will fill the 8 month gap between last raid and next expansion.... Was totally expected they would try to drag some things out to call patch 5.5.

    My thinking is they'll keep them both active at first and then monitor things to see how it goes.

    "connected realms"? Blizzard, why dont you say it for what it is, you are merging serves.

    Not sure how you deduce all that from Connected Realms. We've known for a while that this was coming and we know that 5.5 has always been possible, just that there would be no raids IF it did happen.

    This is the best feature ever. Look at games from Cryptic. All there servers basically run in one giant world so their games always seems populated even with their low player counts.

    They won't. Simply connecting two realms won't fix the dead-ness that is Silithus for example.

    I don't think the terminology really matters.

    THE major question is though, Will you be able to send your BOA's to other characters on connected realms, or will you have to buy them all over again (or from the cash shop)

Love SWTOR for the story, but hate the end game. FF14 was originally a mess, but I'm still planning to get 2.0 - didn't think it was the greatest game from playing the new beta, but it was a decent change from WoW. And of course, even WoW has its own issues.
    I played EQ and EQ2 and really look forward to something from the EQ universe again. EQ was a brilliant game and I find myself wishing each mmo I play had some of the basic concepts they used back then. I've started believing in the FTP platform now more than ever, after leaving wow to play things like Neverwinter, Rift when it went ftp when I think about how fun those games can be and not cost a dime of your money. It just makes me angry knowing I spent so many years in wow, not happy when I could have been trying other things. They've had the corner on the market long enough, I hope they hurt maybe they'll continue to improve the game for the games sake and not for their pocketbook.

    I wish I could be impressed by FF14, I have yet to get into it, wildstar was a lot more fun between both betas...
