    server communities have been dead for almost a decade. CRZ, LFR and LFD all put the final nails in it.
    this change is to help their dead servers, which is most of them, with a breathe of life.
    honestly at this point everyone needs to get ready for mega servers in retail as it has been headed that way, slowly for years.
    this is where i see them changing their classic expansions roll out. i dont see them implementing alot of the 'features' that killed communities now that they know that it did nothing good for the game long term.

    Get back to me when the high and full pop ones are merged. Also, BFA quarterly reports throughout say hello.

    I am not even playing atm, but I am fucking allergic to stupidity and my allergies get worse the older I get.
    Sounds like you are around yourself a lot...

    Actually I'm a bit confused, Aman'Thul is EU-DE and both Dath'Remar and Khaz'Goroth are OC, how is this supposed to work?

    It's an OCE PvE realm as well. They are just named the same.

    You'd think the "(NA)" in the post title might tip people off...

    Go play an RPG game that isn't an MMO?

    God... some people find a way to complain about everything.

    Now getting a well populated server makes you leave? Why? How can that possibly be a bad thing? Ridiculous.

    There is nothing wrong with desiring to play on a low- or medium-pop server. It's not as though a community of, let's say, 5000 players is the exact same as one that is double that. If you want to play on a high-pop server like Illidan or some such, you do you. Just don't be saying others shouldn't get to make their own choice in the matter like you did.

    Oops my bad, thanks for pointing it out. I wasn't aware of another server called Aman'thul. I shouldn't make posts after midnight

    And you still fail to say why. Do you plan to get to know every one of those players? Lets just deny the other 4999 players a well populated server cause... whatever it is that makes you not want a well populated server. Yeah, nah. It just sounds like yet another self centered post that doesn't take into account anyone but themselves.

    This is an MMORPG, It's very nature is to play with other people. /thread.

    I feel bad for people complaining about something that is obviously good for the game.. for people that don’t enjoy the game: it’s time to hang up your mantle and leave - server connects for dead servers are a positive thing..

    I have tried to engage in a discussion, but it appears to me you are not interested. At least it can't be said that I didn't make an attempt.

    And guess what? Playing on a less-populated server is still participating in an MMO. It's not like we're talking about the LAN parties of old here.

    Sure. So have fun playing? I don’t see the issue here. People wanting to play in a ghost town can just download a single player project or something.

    Then YOU can pay and transfer to one of the few dead realms left and let others in your realm enjoy the game with more people tgo do stuff with.

    See, that's one the things I (still) wish Blizzard had changed up long ago. Instead of making server transfers an expensive endeavor, have it either be free or a token $1 and put a lengthy cooldown on it. Probably far too late in this game's life to have enough of a positive effect, though. =/

    It's crazy that something so simple as connecting low pop realms causes so much controversy here.

    They're connecting low pop realms to other low pop realms to make them slightly higher pop. That's really all there is to it. Your life won't even dramatically change in most cases. The only potential negative result is that there will be more people for AH so if you're one of those wow billionaires who make money on AH speculation you're gonna hve more competition now. For the rest of 99,999% players playing on those realms this is either positive or no issue at all.

    The actual population of your connected realm only affects guild recruitment and AH. It doesn't change how many people are in the open world because there you see people from other realms anyway.
