"If that isn’t you though, and if you aren’t completely tied down to these realms, take the FCMs. Please, take the FCMs."I hadn't chuckled in a while but this was just comical. People are not going to be leaving if they don't have an ecosystem to move with them.
This is also a Blizzard created issue, which you're putting the responsibility on players to fix for you. You say that you're not telling people who are grounded on these mega servers by friendships and social cliques to leave, but are doing nothing on your end besides offering up "free transfers" to dead realms. You're offering ANOTHER problem, that again, won't be fixed by you guys. We're paying $15 a month for a game we can't play, and you're putting it on us to fix it, and then make condescending posts like this. If the technology "does not exist" then you should never have allowed people from dead servers to transfer to full servers to begin with. This feels like an absolute scam to get us to pay to transfer again in 6 months.
I'm trying to move but I can't because apparently I have mail. But I'm sitting in a Q to get in and check the mail 🤣. I can't imagine what it is. If it's just an old copy of something sent from an alt, I'm going to be annoyed lol.
Do signups for mass transfers. It is the only way. Once signups hit a threshold, say 5000 per faction, transfer everyone en masse. This solution is incredibly obvious, there must be a technical limitation as to why they do not do it
It might not be the best solution , not financly good. But close the “older” / mega realms off to new players. Ff14 did something similar with actually not making free trial available to new players nor those who purchased the game after a certain date. It helped the servers and queue times reduce , they DIDN’t disappear but they reduced to a manageable level. But this might not be an option for blizzard atm. Sorry for the broken English
Players before prepatch: "Let's create a Character on a server that's labeled "full". What could possibly go wrong?"Players after prepatch: *surprised Pikachu face* "WTF Blizzard!"
The solution in my mind:1. Allow crossrealm guilds/raids/dungeons 2. Add filterfunctions and invite information in the new LFD tool where you can decide if you want to search/ be found crossrealm or not.3. Show official server data somewhere.4. Define conditions that entitle realms for free transfers. 4.1. over maximal active players (average over a week) 4.2. Under minimum active players (average over a week) 4.3. out of ally/horde ratio for factionspecific transfers5. Reward players who transfers with cosmetics/Titels.
I agree wow DEV. You should make everyone move from benediction that didnt have a max level toon before the launch of tbc. That is a great idea.
