Thank you for the support.
Blizzard: I GM a large guild on Earthen Ring. Barbro does, too. Our communities have been around for over a decade and are too large to mass transfer without leaving behind the haves and have-nots when it comes to funds. Our members also have alts with vintage armor, titles, crafting recipes, not to mention RP stories attached to them because we are an RP realm (and an OG RP realm) at our core, and transferring is not so simple. We as GMs don’t want to leave anyone behind. We don’t want to leave long-time neighbors behind, either. ER is a small but spirited neighborhood and those who remain are there for a reason – we like the people who chose to stay and want to support them, and we’ve been holding out for a connection since the previous round.
I tweeted customer service yesterday, asking whether there were going to be more realm connections. I was linked this thread (though I referenced this thread in my initial tweet and already posted in it) and told to post on the forums and use the in-game suggestion tool. So I am here again, and my fellow Earthen Ringers are here, posting on the forums, asking, every where, where Earthen Ring is and if we are slated for a much-needed connection. We’re here. Small, but here, and raising as many voices we can, doing the only things we can, the things we were told we could do.
We appreciate any former Earthen Ringers and other small servers who express support and I’ve been 'ing as many as their posts. Any post telling us if this is the last set of connections or who is next is appreciated, and don’t forget Earthen Ring.
