    Darrowshire Merge NO

    Most people roll on Elysium because of the population. If they were to offer transfers from Ely to Darrowshire and Anathema while capping population in Elysium at somewhere between 3-5k, plenty would take the transfer opportunity, plenty would re-roll, plenty would deal with queues, and a few would quit. Elysium is not the problem child, it's Darrowshire and Anathema. No one is suggesting re-roll or fresh starts, merely ways to push players to spread across other realms. How anyone could deny that 9k is too much for a vanilla server with Blizzlike spawn rates is beyond me. I don't think they are that much bigger than Azeroth zones tbh. The main quest hubs are about the same and mob density is similar. Bigger, yes, but Hellfire Peninsula is not capable of holding thousands of players. Would be interesting to measure the size of the zones to compare.

    Darrowshire Merge NO

    Has anyone touched on the topic of server population in TBC realms? Outlands is far smaller than both Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor, never mind both combined. With Elysium's population peaking at 9k, I'm struggling to envision a Outlands launch with even half that many players. Granted, they won't all be 60's, but obviously most people will be. We don't know what kind of numbers we will see, but there should be no question that server caps should be lowered and thus we will need multiple TBC servers, make one a PvE and 2 PvP servers. Cap Elysium at 4k and Darrowshire and Anathema will have significant growth. Do similar for two or three TBC servers and the population will be spread. The ingame world was never designed to facilitate 9000 players at once, we need server caps which will spread the players across more realms. DO NOT REMOVE THE ONLY PVE REALM.

    Elysium - Crashed

    No, he didn't give me an answer. Bad customer support is a problem and I'm not sure why you'd defend it, other than for the purpose of sucking up to Elysium staff. Why couldn't he have linked that link? Guess he just didn't care to. You sidestepped the fact that everyone uses this website, whereas not everyone uses twitter and discord. Why shouldn't the forum be a method of receiving communications on server status? The status page didn't work, it simply listed the same pop as when it went down. I appreciate the irony of you referring to me as an entitled child, as you, yourself act childish in doing so. Go work in the customer service business for a couple years and maybe you'll realize I'm right.

    Would it have been so hard to have answered the question, then politely pointed us in the direction of you Discord and Twitter? Perhaps providing a link? We are here to emulate the vanilla WoW experience. Blizzard support staff were always kind, courteous, and accommodating. This interaction (for me) and perhaps, others, too, is indicative of Elysium support staff's attitude towards their users. Why should I donate to a group that doesn't show common decency to its users? Customer service is an often overlooked aspect of any enterprise, free, or otherwise. I kindly suggest you and your team consider that moving forward and change your tone from authoritarian and vindictive to accommodating and courteous. Lastly, it should be noted that not everyone uses either Twitter or Discord yet everyone uses this website. I have no idea why you would suggest it is not the place for news, particularly as there is a sub forum devoted entirely to announcements. I hope you can take this feedback in stride and choose not to ban me, delete my posts, or some other vindictive behavior as I have been told is commonplace for Elysium staff. I am not asking for the moon here.

    GM responded to another thread saying to use discord, this isn't an ingame issue. Rofl, yeah, right, because we can't get into the game. Some of us don't use discord, and you could have replied instead of telling the poster to go look on discord.

    Something would be better than nothing.

    Agreed. Every time it has happened I have been left with no way of knowing when it will resume connection.

    It's everyone, and then continues to be difficult to connect for some time as everyone tries to reconnect at once.

    Yep this happens almost every day now. They need to work this out.
  11. Are we for sure going to be able to transfer our characters over to TBC or is this just pure speculation? I think what may make more sense is to get some polling data on the subject. Upgrading pre-existing servers to TBC and giving players the option to opt (transfer) out may provide for a better experience than simply having to transfer your players over to a TBC server IMO. This would resolve issues like name changes, exploiting transfers, etc. If you miss your window of opportunity, tough luck, gotta restart. This make a lot more sense than having to deal with clunky transfers to TBC and would better emulate the WoW experience.
