Thanks but we need FACTION specific transfers to help balance realm factions. Some realms are disgustingly one sided.


Does anyone even play Earthfury? It is always low/medium even on the weekends.

Depressing Blizz isn’t targeting specific factions to transfer. I’m afraid if EF gets populated, it will turn into another Heartseeker and won’t be balanced.


BGs are cross realm, total population is 55:45 H:A. Assuming full population, only 10% of the horde players would have a queue.

True but I’m guessing that it won’t be random cross-realm BGs like in retail but within battle groups that were in vanilla 1.12 patch. Estimate 5-6 battle groups.

Battle groups didn’t even out faction comp back in vanilla and there aren’t any guarantees that if implemented in Classic battle groups would maintain your assumed 55/45 split.

I concur entirely.

However, regardless of the overall ratio determining the specific ratio by battlegroup isn’t currently possible.

Depending on how they are implemented, it may attempt to provide some balance - which would mitigate massive queues for both factions.

Or, servers will be clustered by other metrics irrespective of the ratio on the servers within the xrbg, which means we could see variation of queue based on group.

If Heartseeker, Faerlina, Grobb, and Bloodsail Buc’s are in a battlegroup then the ratio may have Ally in a large majority.

If Stal, Skeram, and Herod are in a battlegroup then the ratio may have Horde in a large majority.

My point is, there’s no way to know. The overall ratio between servers is relatively balanced based upon the only available data and server forum discussions. If there is an attempt to balance xrbg’s, then the player pool should facilitate it. If there isn’t any attempt to do so, it’s anybody’s guess what faction ratios by battlegroup will be.

That said, BGs aren’t even a concern for character migration. They will be reliant on overall ratio and how Blizzard configures xrbg’s. The principal concern is server ratio, which won’t relate to BG queues.

Ok champs, this might be the longest free transfers have been up. People aren’t moving at this point without a better reason or motivation.

Ease up on the restrictions or allow paid at this point. Give us the freedom to help you move the needle.



Weird, why is this thread not pinned on the main page anymore?


They could open a transfer from Thunderfury to Brazilian realm too.

come to Arcanite Reaper. It was completely dead about month ago. But I took a few weeks off and came back and it is better. But we need more!

come to Arcanite Reaper and join Warpath!

Thought about that, but the alliance own your server. I know, because I have a gnome warlock level 60 on the realm. Scarsnik.

Please allow Horde only transfers to Heartseeker please. I honestly feel like you guys don’t pay attention to server ratios at all. Heartseeker really needs more Horde. Please pay attention Blizzard.


Priority 1: Layering
Priority 2: Maintain subs

Priority 937: Server Balance

Could add thunderfury to the brazilian server

Any chance you guys have tricks up your sleeve for better faction balance on pvp realms? Multiple corpse runs per dungeon on Stalagg is getting old pretty fast and it’s likely that you guys made the situation worse by offering transfers to Heartseeker, which is suffering the same imbalance on the other side. Thoughts?


Some of these servers, including full servers such as Kromcrush, no longer allow you to transfer to a medium pop server (Earthfury) even though other servers, such as Blaumeux, can still transfer to Earthfury. Is there a reason for that? I’d like to get my character to the medium pop realm from the full realm.

I think some servers are in danger of becoming faction lopsided. You can’t transfer from Herod except to the Latin American realms. Good thing I transferred a few days before they did this.

Would love to get some more insight on this.


bump. Kromcrush is a 30+ minute queue – why can’t we move characters to earthfury – a medium pop realm – just like other queued servers?
