I mean, i do remeber vanilla and BC launch beign extremely bad.
But all other launches were fine. Both legion and bfa were pretty smooth for me and my friends.
Further evidence that blizzard can’t run their servers efficiently - but that being said, WOD had some of the WORST server failures. BC had queues, so did Vanilla, but WOD you literally couldn’t play the game for the first week because the world servers would crash and you couldn’t use your garrison (which was necessary for the story to progress)
They didnt merge though they created connected realms tech.
Actually they did merge servers back in vanilla. The cross realm technology was invented later.
They didn’t merge any servers at any given point in wow nor closed them.
Garrisons were a mess for the first week and had some crashes. Not as bad as vanilla bc or wotlk crashes though. Vanilla you kept falling of the world for the first 6 months of the game lol.
When servers had population issues they recieved free transfers like Ursin got from warsong and aerie peak got from some other high pop servers aswell.
That was for over population. If you weren’t playing Vanilla during this time you wouldn’t know about it. There were server mergers. Blizzard created too many servers following the christmas push and there were several dying after the hype died down so they decided to merge them into one community.
Even if this WASN’T the case (which it was), there is no reason Blizzard couldn’t do it (again) on the back end for too many servers, rather than trying to CONVINCE people to leave their servers.
Ironically contrary to you i do have vanilla achievments from both scourge event and pvp rank, lol. Even old onyxia achievment is there.
There were 0 servers mergeds and closed servers and yes transfers were usually from high pop servers to a low pop server, that was the whole point of them. Kargath had transfer from warsong server and other servers for instance and those players created Death and Taxes and became the top US guild.
It wasn’t the case and merging servers is expensive thats the whole point of layering.
Dont jump on the discussion soo hard.
Yes connected realms are a form or mergin servers.
But vanilla didnt have any of that. Vanilla to Cata no server was merged or closed, MoP had CRZ and connected realms came in late WoD.
Contrary to me? I participated in the scourge event on both my horde priest and my alliance mage. I still HAVE my Haunted Momento. I still have my tabard from the scourge event on my mage. Next time you go creeping around someones achievements maybe try to verify it first?
I participated in the AQ event, I participated in the AQ gate opening and my guild master also got the Qiraji Battle Tank Mount. I was playing the game well before Dire Maul released.
I didnt care to see your armory bro i just aways say it because works 90% of the time. I have all of those too, so that i means we both played it since you already recognized those are vanilla achievments.
Still no merging of servers ever happened in vanilla.
And i played the game before maraudon was launched lol. I even remeber when firetree server was created.
It’s literally ON the achievements you trolled. If you paid more attention (like you clearly haven’t to the conversation and are playing loosely with the facts) you would have noticed I have the Scourge Event Tabard achievement as well.
