    Jaedenar, the realm blizzard will kill.

    Years ago jaedenar was a quite popular realm but if you go there today you'd never think that as the realm is dead now.

    Blizzard came with a solution : connected realms! This "solution" will be our downfall.
    Blizzard wants to connect Jaedenar with Auchindoun.
    Lets take some statistics shall we?

    Auchindoun has 77.9% alli and 21.8% horde
    Jaedenar has 88.7% horde and 11% alli

    This means that Auchindoun has 58 760 alli and 16 416 horde
    This also means that Jaedenar has 25 093 horde and 3211 alli

    If we add it up it''ll be around 41k horde and 62k alli.

    The fear has already spread to the official forums as people of jaedenar are scared that our little but loved realm will end.

    (Numbers taken from http://wow.realmpop.com/eu.html, all numbers are based on lvl 90 characters)
    (Scared people begging not to do this http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/forum/to...878158?page=23 )

    How... how is adding more population and balancing the factions a bad thing?

    You're going to have to be a lot more specific about what the problem is, here.

    it won't be balanced at all

    You cannot use realmpop.com as an accurate gauge of player population as it does not delete players that are no longer active.

    Your going from a faction balance of 8:1 to a faction balance of 1:1.5. How is that not more balanced?

    the purpose of connected realms is not perfection. its more players.

    You realise that connecting the realms just means you now share capital cities and AHs? Out in the world you are still CRZed just like before.

    Also, realmpop.com is not terribly accurate. I decided to look into your issue using a slightly more reliable source of numbers to view active population.

    If you want a more accurate (but still imperfect) gauge of population numbers, especially if your concern is max level raiding population, you should use WoWProgress's numbers. WoWProgress counts each unique player who has at least one kill in Siege of Orgrimmar, or is a member of a guild with at least one kill in Siege of Orgrimmar.

    These numbers are as follows:

    ((I used the US realms because the OP wasn't specific, so see my post below for the numbers for the EU servers))

    Oh, my mistake. I'll check my numbers for the EU realms and see what WoW Progress has for those.

    I really don't see your problem with this.

WoWProgress counts each unique player who has at least one kill in Siege of Orgrimmar, or is a member of a guild with at least one kill in Siege of Orgrimmar.

    These numbers are as follows:

    US-Jaedenar
    272 Horde to 131 Alliance.
    2:1

    US- Auchindoun
    245 Horde to 130 Alliance.
    1.8:1

    Combined total raiding population:
    517 Horde to 261 Alliance.
    1.9:1

    Four Horde raiding guilds will be added to Jaedenar from Auchindoun, and only three Alliance.

    Your faction balance ration, according to the numbers of players who are currently raiding SoO, will stay the same.
    He's EU, not US.

    I don't get it?

    The realm's going to be much more balanced now and much more populated on both sides?

    You know, maybe it's just me, but connected realms should really have heralded the end of this CRZ nonsense.

    I'm legitimately surprised it hasn't.
