    Anyone else notice this since heirlooms are cross sever

    I play on a very full server Area 52 Before heirlooms went cross sever there was hardly anyone questing out in mop and we did not have que times. Now we have 2 hr+ ques every night and the mop zones are full of people. Anyone else notice people jumping ship to full servers?

    Not surprising. Now that you're unfettered for leveling more and more people will do it.

    I'm glad heirlooms have finally become cross server. Should have been that one from day 1

    Blizzard intended on it being like that, but it wasn't due to technical limitations that they have now overcome.

    There's been (short) queues on Wyrmrest every night lately. I think we have a lot of people coming in from the "dead" RP servers.

    I'm not looking forward to trying to get on when WoD comes out. >_<

    With the move to cross-server everything, many people are simply more open to having characters on different servers now as they know there's not as much difference between them as there traditionally was. Avoiding queues is now a more acceptable option because now it's not a case that you're stuck to 1 server because of heirloom location or AH (of course a lot of server AH' still aren't cross-server but in time I expect almost all will be).

    Bleeding Hollow went from no server queues at peak times on Tuesday to 40 minute queues on Monday. Blizzard needs to open up free realm transfers to let things balance out.

    Yes. Whee!

    Haven't seen this on Kil"Jaeden, but it wouldn't surprise me. Rerolling suddenly became a lot more convenient, and (mostly) everyone wants to join an active realm.

    Fellow Wyrmrest player, experiencing queues as well.

    If what my guildmates are saying is right (I kinda doubt it), the queues aren't because the server is getting more people than usual, but because the server capacity has been temporarily lowered. Apparently the servers are being physically moved to another data center?

    I really doubt x-server heirlooms would have that big an effect, probably just a coincidence.

    But yeah it's a nice improvement, it'll be even better once we get the vanity tab.

    Hate to break your bubble, but Area 52 has has had que times to log in during peak times ever since wrath and it's been extremely busy since Mop released.

    Free and Blizzard don't belong in the same sentence.

    Why should they care when people are willing to pay real money to change servers.

    Same with BG queues.

    The playerbase literally pays Blizzard to fix their own unbalanced shit.

    People are abandoning dead servers and doing it all over again on highly pop servers thanks to this new Heirloom xserver shit

    I know ive started over again on another high pop server and left my dead server

    I dont mind leveling up again and there is no way in hell im paying blizz 25 dollars to move my toons

    Keep in mind that every time we're getting closer to a new expansion they put artificial queues to force people to transfer before the expansion hits to avoid server issues on high populated realms. Sure people do play more on different servers now due to heirlooms being crossrealm, but not enough to suddenly have huge queues etc.
    Tank dies = Maybe healer's fault
    Healer dies = Tank's fault
    DPS dies = Their own bloody fault

    problem with free transfers off high pop servers with long que times, is the low pop side are the ones who generally bail causing servers to become even more imbalanced.

    it was technically impossible at the time son, blizzard actually had to create and update the tech so they could it. you should be on your hands and knees thanking them for doing it.
