So, how about you act like an adult and wait for connected realms? They're coming and it shouldn't be much longer.
And don't even fucking start with this "bait" bullshit. They specifically said it would be "some time" after 5.4 launch. Maybe some people are silly enough to think that means 1-2 weeks, but the rest of us are smart enough to realize that connecting entire realms
might be something they want to slowly implement so that they can get it right.
Also, how do you expect them to adapt the naming system for mergers? "Hey, I'm Asterix, and this guy is Asterix(*)." Get a clue.
