    Realm Balancing (not connected realms)

    So, WITH all the talk about connected realms, is it enough ?

    Decided to reroll today to a new server and had to decide which one to roll at.

    This is what I encountered :




    is there anything that going to happen to balance out those big realms ? Ravencrest ? Kazzak ? Twisting Nether ?
    Meh, I'm not a big fan of PvP but the feeling of a populated world of both factions really helps with the atmosphere this game deserves.

    I wonderi f this was ever discussed in Blizzard HQ..

    The players themselves chose to make faction dominated realms. People could've decided to make balanced realms, but it's pretty clear a lot of people don't actually want that.

    This. Particularly on PvP realms, people want to be the dominant faction. But even on PvE realms, once a particular faction begins to gain steam, it usually keeps on rolling, because players want to have guild/raid opportunities. Which is why Stormrage Alliance realm pop happened this year.

    balanced realms has no effect on gameplay... thats the official Blizzard line.

    Therefore they dont care about faction balance.

    then whats the point with having 2 factions, and the entire storyline based on a war between 2 factions, if theres only 1 faction per realm ?

    exactly

    There is only ONE part of the game where the factions are in direct competition with each other these days and thats in Battlegrounds... not a single other part of the game will u compete with the opposite faction.

    In that case, why not connect an awfully unbalanced horde sided PVP realm with an awfully unbalanced ally sided PVP realm ?
