Complete re-edit of the post number 4.
After much debate with the leadership we have decided to accept the first round of transfers from Fairbanks to Arcanite Reaper on September 5th. The reason for this is that by design we are a raid guild for working professionals on both coasts. We have a very limited window to raid and even the whiff of a queue can end our opportunity to raid.
Due to regular 5-6k queues at primetime every night on a server with an artifical cap increase and the looming threat of layering ending, we will simply not be able to function without changing servers.
I know many of you are disappointed we are leaving Fairbanks, but we had also just as many if not more that were disappointed they couldn’t join us on Fairbanks due to these queues. Even if the queues are gone in 6 months it would be too late.
For those of you coming with us the discord and the website remain the same. I will re-update this post with the names of the officers although I expect it to remain roughly the same.
Please refer to the Classic WoW General Discussion forum for all the stickies that explain the realm transfer process.
