While the faction imbalance is very annoying and something that is also important in ensuring Classic servers stays healthy. If they were to go and block transfers from the underrepresented faction and “encourage” the over-represented faction to transfer that isn’t really going to fix anything. People who are part of the 70% faction aren’t going to want to transfer, because why would they. Then you’d just have these long queues and all the people part of that 30% faction are just going to flood the forums with complaints that there are long queues and they can’t leave the server. People who are part of that over-represented faction are more likely to be happy to sit in a queue because they know when they get in they’re going to have fun playing, while the underrepresented faction players just won’t want to log on because why bother sitting through a long queue just to constantly get camped because there are 5x as many enemies in each zone as allies.
How would you go about trying to fix that beyond just blocking certain factions from transferring because I don’t see that fixing the problem.
