Tol Barad and Wintergrasp ConcernsWe unfortunately didn’t identify some of the issues with these PvP zones because these areas didn’t see much activity during the beta testing period. An early bug allowed players from multiple realms to participate in Tol Barad and Wintergrasp battles, or quest in these zones in between battles; however, this has been addressed and these zones should never be coalesced. We’ll consider offering full CRZ functionality for these zones in a future patch when we can solve some of the logistical issues coalescing initially brought about.Stranglethorn Fishing ExtravaganzaIn the case of the weekly Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza, we also found that players from other realms were able to jump to a realm in a different time zone to get a head start on fishing, allowing them to win their home realm’s tournament as soon as it began. This isn’t fair for anyone and will require some new tech on our end to ensure the integrity of timed competitions. Unfortunately, this change will require a client-side patch, so we are disabling the fishing tournaments until we can deliver the fix for them in a future patch.Ignoring or Reporting a Player from Another RealmWe understand that players want to be able to ignore and report players from other realms, and we’re working to identify and correct any issues currently preventing this. We take harassment very seriously, and if another player is harassing you, you can submit a ticket so that we can investigate your report. Cross-Realm /who RequestsThis is something we’d like to do, and we’re looking into it.Realm “Hopping” by Changing Party LeadersWhile it might sound like fun to go exploring in other realms by changing party leaders, this was not intended, and allowed some players to take advantage of bosses such as the Darkmoon Rabbit and challenges such as the Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza. As such, we’ve made a fix that will stop groups from being able to do this.Chat, Achievement, Skill SpamWe’re aware of chat, achievements, skills, and World Defense announcements being spammed in cross-realm zones and are working on a solution for this. We agree: it’s annoying.Found Other Bugs? Every bit of assistance you can offer us in tracking down bugs and squashing them would be invaluable. After reading this, if you’re experiencing any issues with CRZ that pretty clearly seem unintended, please provide us as much detail as possible on the Bug Report forum. If you’re curious as to what entails a “good” bug report, please read this simple, yet effective guide.
Cool beans, ty for the heads-up Bliz ^_^
Honestly, they really took forever to say nothing.
Ok that's cool and all. But I can care less about seeing more people when I'm leveling. I level solo regardless. I want more population for more raiding, RBG's, better economy, etc. This cross realm zones thing does not fix low population servers in my opinion. While sitting in Orgrimmar on my server (Gorgonnash) it's rare to have more than 40 or 50 people on when /who is typed and most of them are low level/leveling. No end game content happens unless you're in an extremely dedicated guild or group or some kind. For the less-than-hardcore-players, such as myself, we never get into end game content. LFR isn't enough, we want to do the real deal. I don't know enough to come up with suggestions other than merge some low population servers together. But that is why I pay Blizzard, so they can figure that stuff out. Figure out how to make your customers happy, all of them, not some of them.
exclude rare spawn zones from xrealm mechanic. it is very annoying...
I found a bug, with my mage, but I like it. Not gonna report it. Don't want it fixed. It is cool.:P
I wish they would address the issue of level 85s spawning in low level areas where lower level characters are intended to level. I love the increase of world pvp, but being level 48 and an 85 keeps ganking you and everyone he sees over and over is not PvP.
i kinda dont like it before this started i was doing the argent tourney and hardly saw anyone didnt have to wait for mobs to respawn well now i have that problem even while im waiting someone will still just jump in there and wipe out my mobs dont care whos there first
I already hate this. In the last few days I have had to literally queue to kill mobs to complete a quest. A line of people from different realms, lining up to kill a mob, I kid you not. How is this a good idea? Coming from a massively populated server (silvermoon eu) i'm used to a lot of competition for things like mob kills and gathering, but it really is ridiculous at the moment. I picked as many herbs in 2 hours the last few trips as I would in half an hour a few weeks ago. Say what you like about spawn rates, but I'm really not used to seeing 3-5 people fight over a herb in uldum. For the non-assertive (read: non-aggressive) types like me, I'm having to fly by 9 out of 10 herbs while i watch pile ups on them (also just like to note that this was around 2.30am server time). Things are getting nasty. Swarming is the word I'd use. It reeeeeally needs to be trimmed back imo.edited for typo
So the real question is...What zone will be best for world pvp?
Ah, I thought (party leader realm = base realm) was as intended. I hope it can still work like that in Dalaran so people can invite their offserver friends to Club Trix on WrA :) For the most part, it's been working that way so far.
Whats your way of fixing the rare spawn problem blizzard thats what us mount collectors wish to know.
They did address the ´rare spawn´ issue. Basically they said that the rate of rare spawns was abnormally high on low population servers, the spawn rates were set with higher realm populations in mind.. which this fixes.I am not going to lie, I am very disappointed with CRZ because very early in my playing career here, I rerolled on a low population server for just those two issues... nodes and rare spawns. One of my favorite things while questing was coming across a silver. It is one of the few things that made me kill extra mobs while questing.In any event, this is a change that is for the betterment of the game. Little things like rare spawns and ore dwarf in comparison to seeing zones full of people again. For a new player, that is a HUGE thing.
Being able to invite friends from other realms and quest together in zones is awesome.Preeeetty much everything else about CRZ ends up feeling annoying or incredibly inconvenient. This feature was not thoroughly tested and definitely feels like a half-assed feature.
I always figured if I wanted to do something and meet new people that pugs were the way to go. doing this won't really make new friends I think as people tend to stick with there own.
Plus odds are more people just means more stupid in org and stormwind chat....sighs...Trade chat turned into barrens
