I mean, I appreciate what they are doing with some keywords. We can’t expect Blizzard to update everyone’s addon code. That’s where patch notes come in super handy, though? I’m not sure what it’s like to work over there these days after everything. I don’t see the point in being abusive about it.
What they should do about population is just merge all the servers. Create a fresh pve/pvp server… call it Season 2. The first guild to beat the last boss in Naxx gets a special title, and the whole server is merged with everyone, just like in diablo, you’re now non-seasonal character. Season 3 starts. Rinse repeat. You wouldn’t even have to do anything once it’s set up. If you don’t like the server first idea, make it a timed season, w/e.
I will roll a new char every ‘season’. It would keep pvp fun and fresh as a wave of players gets to enjoy world pvp like used to happen back in the day. Not sure I even care about the endgame as much as doing 5 man dungeons and some pvp.
