Hello all my fellow medium pop server retainees!
We have persisted here since the last server merge I think all of us know at least one person who has left our haven for a more populated realm. I know that I am very excited with the announcement from Blizzard that over the next 2-3 months they will be doing a 2nd (long awaited in my opinion) set of sever connections.
This means new people will be coming to our community! Or we could be going towards theirs but in the end we will all be together and that’s what is important. I know I’m looking forward to seeing new faces in the world, more items on the AH (more people buying mine >:D), and new names in chats.
I am curious if my fellow members of Terenas / Hydraxis feel the same, or do you enjoy knowing all the guilds on server and people’s names?
The second main question I have for everyone is who do you think we will be merged with? The main question I have at the moment is if they will only connect realms from the same timezone. One member of my guild swears that Hydraxis had a different realm time in the past, and I was wondering if others remember this or not? (I am a Terenas born and raised player).
With a little bit of research I have a rough list of servers I expect us to be merged with, but I am curious if other people will expect the same or think it will be based of a Blizz intern throwing darts at a wall of server names.
Here are my expectations and likely servers:
- The server has to be mountain time as well.
- The server will not be an RP realm. I think that they may ignore the “PVP” realm tag as it no longer exists with the War Mode changes. That being said I don’t think that they will throw the RP community into PVE servers yet. They may connect RP servers though, which would break expectation 1.
- Battlegroups will no longer be a thing, as they are no longer used. Currently looking at the server listing on wow-gamepedia they have servers listed by battlegroup. I know that these are no longer being used for anything so I expect their grouping to be broken.
My expectations for new connected realms for us!
- Azjol-Nerub and Khaz Modan
- Cairne and Perenolde
- Bloodscalp, Boulderfist, Dunemaul, Maiev, and Stonemaul (assuming no pvp-realm restriction)
- Darkspear (assuming no pvp-realm restriction)
If you see any flaws in my logic feel free to point them out, and tell me who you think we’ll be connected to soon.
