    Also, they better only do 1 RP-PVP per region or else the eventual server merges will suck

    RP-PvP only on NA servers?! WTF man. If europe doesn't get any I guess I'm forced to create an NA account. Such bullshit.

    EU gets RP-PVP servers too. It's just that MMO-Champion didn't report it cause who cares about EU right.

    Why would they specify NA? What about EU (and other regions) made Blizzard think that there shouldn't be an RP-PvP server there?
  1. Tatakau's Avatar
    They were always going to do one, but this way it makes it look like they are doing the RP community a favour.

    RP-PVP was always a mistake, those servers were dead even in Vanilla. Did 2 people scream loud enough to get more dead servers created?

    A potentially good thing about these servers is that they might have better or even reversed faction balance compared to regular PvP servers, which will very likely be overwhelmingly horde-dominated.

    Pretty much this. Literally no one talked about RP-PvP servers, on EU the biggest RP server is Argent Dawn which was a PvE server. All of a sudden, all 3 of them that played on a RP-PvP came out like cockroachs saying their server (which is literally the smallest niche type server ever made) was bigger than RP-PvE lmao and as always, blizzard caters to the loudest population
  1. Arainie's Avatar
    You have a blue tracker at the very top of the page where both the EU and US RP-PvP servers are announced. It's time to boot up your own brains for the day already, morning is over for us in the EU.

    I played on rp-pvp and was hoping for the server type to exist again. Rp servers have name rules and I like to pvp. This combines the best of both for me. The rppvp server I played on was medium pop and had a stable population for a very long time. I know at least two of them did.

    Just because it doesnt appeal to you doesn't mean we should not have them.

    LOL so they nerf the only spec i play left, veng DH... because why again? what a joke.

    classic can't come soon enough

    This is such a poorly written bluepost, why would they create drama and refer to US RP realms specifically, when it's in fact coming to both regions?

    Cause it was on the US forums, exact same post is on EU forums too. I have hard time believing that someone actually thought there would only be one in one region. Feels like finding reasons for outrage is going above common sense.
