Server merges would be a better solution than free xfers this would help especially if more than 2 servers were merged paying attention to horde and alliance populations that are being thrown together so as to keep from making one side to heavily sided.
but when you are given a free xfer most people just look at the population of their faction and choose from the few that are in their favor.
So if you were to merge, you avoid that issue and bring a better balance to the game. blizzard your response to this was pitiful in past questions saying that oh it could upset a portion of the player base, we cant take big steps like that, bull****, you already have the vast majority of your player base against you if you would take a moment to read even 5% of these forums you would know that.
and if this isn’t the solution to dead and dying servers, you best make one soon because theres a lot of people unsubbing for this reason alone, and theres plenty of other reasons to leave as it is.
to my fellow players, tell me what your server is like, what struggles do you have, or are you lucky enough to be on a heavy pop server thats favor is to your faction what issues do you have i imagine gathering profs are harder, economies a bit more contested but im sure theres more.
