Oh Olivia, so naive.The only reason they don't close down lop pop realms is because it would be really bad for PR.Cheers.
Also, as she suggested... people get attached to their realms. If they can let you stay on it and introduce another way of allowing people to interact better without closing them down, that would be ideal. Hense, that's what they're trying to do. Bad PR? Come on lanky! :DLast I checked there were/are over 500 realms. Even if they decided to close some of them, I don't imagine the PR backlash to be that bad. But, those people on those realms would likely not be happy about it. How would you feel if they removed the realm you enjoy already with little to no CRZ activity?
Closing realms is not even remotely on the list - as they also open new realms from time to time, it would amount to just restarting a realm under a new name, with all players shoved off to a previously existing one.My opinion: realm mergers are only considered good or in any way useful by people who are not attached to their character and their name, as evidenced by the accents and padding x'es, and who wouldn't mind recreating their shallow name with another combination of these.On a brighter note, I could listen to Olivia for hours :P
They need to fix incantations no longer stacking. 5.3 made me loose a bunch and now that just take up room.
I agree with the 'people get attached to their realm part'. It's just like how people get attached to the suburb/city that they live in.
