Firstly I want to thank Aggrend for this post on the Community Council Forums.
[Classic] The unacceptable state of Classic servers - Community / WoW Community Council - World of Warcraft Forums (blizzard.com)
To be honest, hearing all of that almost makes me want to transfer to a server such as Sulfuras. However I have a deep connection from well before even day 1 Classic to my current server as many of my current “retail” WoW server chose it for their community for various reasons.
My issue with the statement is pretty simple. Server Balance. That’s another issue that has been fairly great within WoW for a very long time. I play on Grob which was known for its balance(starting to lean now due to transfers to the server before this whole issue sadly). The very first thought that hits my mind when thinking of actually giving in to transferring is the balance of the server.
I don’t want to be on a server that is 80+/20- horde or alliance dominated. But that is a very common server ratio. And I am sure that many like myself on a realm such as Grob prefer the same as me. I also would not be surprised if players on some of the dominated servers might like a better balance possibly. I believe that while Blizzard is managing the issue of population sizes maybe they should take the moment to prevent these massive server leans from becoming a problem as well for these new filling servers? Rather than continuing with it.
I don’t know, it’s just a thought. I felt like bringing it up much less getting this post out to more people who may have been misled like myself on topics such as layers.
