    Server demographics poll and survey v4.

    Took the links from the front page, it's nice to see how all the realms are being split.

    I hope everyone can help with providing data about which realms/region they'll be playing on so we can all get a better understanding of how the actual realms are going to split.

    Link to the Poll results : https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...aring&sle=true.

    It's a new survey that includes the new servers they are adding on Monday.

    I am disappointed by the fact that at the PvP server the horde dominate by a big margin. This only makes me question my choice to go Alliance.

    On the flipside, you are going to get instant BG queues.

    BGs are in Phase 3. That is in like 6 months or something. If the ratio gets even worse by then, it will snowball into some insane 95-5 ratio, like it happens in most servers which are dominated by one faction.

    Gotta keep in mind that , as long as the split is in the upper 40 % (45-49), layering splits the players evenly across all layers except the last few.

    So as an example let's say a realm has 10 layers, and you have a 44/56% split, that means that in 9 layers you'll have a perfect 50/50 split, whilst the 10th layer will have a 6% discrepancy.

    Unless blizzard decides to split evenly across all layers, in which case it won't be very pleasant. Though I attest that anything above the 45% split is still barely noticeable.

    Oh, so you mean it IS like Vanilla after all?

    Be part of the solution, not the problem.

    Layering isn't very relevant in the long term considering they're all getting merged rather soon

    I can't acess the poll results, can you post a working link?

    It's probably due to too many people attempting to access it, try again in a bit.

    I'm guessing you're referring to the EU realms? Some of those have under 100 responses so keep in mind that's not necessarily accurate

    I doubt phase 3 will be only 6 months after launch. I could be wrong though.

    Phase 2 will be after 4-5 months most likely. Phase 3 won't be in 6 months

    I mean... Lets do that math here real quick. So we have 44 players and 56 players across 10 layers. Lets says each layer supports 10 players max.

    So... The first 8 layers have 5 and 5. The 9th layer has... 4 and 6? The last layer has 0 and 10?

    I'm not sure the layers do a 50/50 split without some SEVERE issues on later layers.

    Honestly , I can't give you a precise answer.

    Though I do remember seeing people on the beta complain about being absolutely alone in ironforge, if it ends up working the same way then I wouldn't be surprised to find some very strange layering results.
