Yes, that’s exactly what Angerforge was. An overflow realm for Skyfury for those who did not want to wait in queue. Anybody who thought anything else about Angerforge upon hearing the news of a new west PvP was fooling themselves. Wrath is in 10 days, you’re not going to keep that brutal gear for long.
If this was the plan, they should have stated it. Everyone defending this ridiculous knee-jerk by Blizzard is now trying to rewrite history and act like “Oh yes, we all knew this was going to happen from the beginning.” I don’t see that being discussed in the forum posts above until the transfers were announced earlier today. What they said was, come play on the new Fresh PvP server. If they had told us their plans, though, it would have been an empty server for them to transfer to. So basically, rerollers got tricked. Thanks, Blizzard.
WotLK classic is being run by drunk college interns and a hand full of overseas vendors who have never played World of Warcraft… Good luck getting a BLUE response that makes any sense, or a response at all…
Come to think of it, didn’t they mention they automated the classic forums with AI like the rest of the customer support? Try starting your posts with “Hey Blizzard” and see if you get a response.
The blue post does not read like it was to be an overflow realm and note that I also thought it would be too but that is not what the blue post says so anyone who trusted Blizzard would have trusted the comment:
This means that poster is wrong and you are right.
He did ask in that thread for the transfers and he seems to have been very upset by the queues. So he got his way. I also highly suspect he will be leaving for Benediction come Wrath and the comments are made for selfish reasons, uncaring about the health of servers, with only thoughts about the short term over the long term. So not a person to be respected.
I don’t really have any skin in this game as I haven’t played fresh but it’s unfortunate that the Fresh start realms won’t long-term be as good as they could be.
Please do everyone a favor and allow PAID/Free character transfers to servers that players already have a lvl 70 character on. The server does not get more full with a transfer, since I can only actively play 1 character at a time. It actually will help mitigate population since I won’t actively be playing on 2 different servers. I bet thousands of others want the same thing…
My main is a 70 Priest on Whitemane. In wrath I will be playing my 70 Mage that is on Eranikus now. Transferring my mage to Whitemane does not increase the player population. Let me pay you the damn $25 so that I can enjoy the game with my friends instead of being stuck on 2 different servers.
