A lista de reinos elegíveis para transferência para Aggra (PvE) é:http://eu.battle.net/wow/pt/blog/3389806/Mover_Personagens_para_o_Novo_Reino_Portugu%C3%AAs_Europeu-06_12_2011#blog
Grim Batol (PvP) Misery Battlegroup
Frostmane (PvP) Misery Battlegroup
Burning Steppes (PvP) Cruelty Battlegroup
- What type of realm will it be?
Most ppl are against this.
- Where will this realm be located physically?
It will be Blackout group so it will be Paris
- What Battlegroup will this server be integrated? As in also, will we still have to talk in english in dungeon finder and alike, since we are getting only 1server?
01/12/2011 13:13Posted by NakatoirTo clarify though, the Portuguese realm will actually be a part of the "Blackout" Battlegroup, not Cyclone. Blackout is a full English Battlegroup, with the exception to the new Portuguese realm that will be placed there :)
- Which servers will be available for free transfers?
We still haven’t given the list of servers that will be able to transfer
- Can it be open to all realms for all Portuguese ppl instead? Many didn't had a clue that there were servers mainly Portuguese when they started.
Blue Reply in the Brazil site:
O sistema de transferência é feito de acordo de reino X para reino Y. Este processo não é feito levando em consideração a nacionalidade ou IP.
- Will there be a free Guild Transfer to the new server aswell?
Most likely yes, Blue says he has no info, but if I'm right like I was in Realm First Achievements Guild transfers will be available also. Just make sure your guild meets the pre-requirements for it
- How Realm First achievements will work on this server?
01/12/2011 13:13Posted by Nakatoirif you use the Free Character Migration or a Paid Character Transfer to move a character to the European Portuguese realm, please be aware that the character will not be eligible for any Realm First achievements until 60 days have passed. Once 60 days have passed since the character move, the character will become eligible once again for Realm First achievements. Please do note that if the character has been made from scratch on the new realm, then it will be eligible for Realm First achievements immediately.
- Will we be able to play in this server not needing to change language pack?
- If Server gets full right away, will more servers be added? And when?
In the press release no saying about Europe one tho
Brazilian Publisher. Found no info of it being in a Portuguese one. Hopefully its still being translated to our Portuguese as they said it would be.

WoW é em um universo de fantasia onde o contexto e mensagens subliminares são extremamente importantes para o entendimento do ambiente de jogo. Dizer que não se deve adaptar nomes de lugares ou personagens e impor isso como uma regra é uma concepção totalmente equivocada.
Para lugares, esta questão é ainda mais relevante. Para alguém que não sabe português, Belo Horizonte é o mesmo que HUGHUAHSD: Um símbolo, e um monte de letras sem sentido. Não entenderá que Belo Horizonte significa "Beautiful Horizon". É como alguém ir para o Japão e ler o nome da rua レストランストリート sem saber que aquela rua se chama "Rua dos Restaurantes". (Usei o google translator para fazer este exemplo, eu não sei japonês). Para quem não sabe japonês, ele lê aquilo sem entender o contexto para o nome da rua. Já um japonês, lê aquilo e sabe que poderá encontrar ali o melhor sushi de Tokyo.
Não queremos que os jogadores não entendam o contexto de certos nomes. Se Hellscream agora é Grito Infernal, o motivo é porque existe um significado no nome. O jogador tem que entender o sentido por trás dos termos, caso contrário ele não estará captando toda a historia/lore do jogo. E para quem não sabe inglês, Hellscream é o mesmo que DHYANTUA: Um monte de letras sem significado que soa bonito em inglês: réu-is-crim.
Só porque inglês e português usam o mesmo alfabeto, isso não significa que é obrigatório manter o termo original. Então tudo que tem sentido no idioma local (desde que seja coerente), será fundamentalmente traduzido.

Anyway, I'd like to give special atention to this sentence:
"Devido a imprevisibilidade do processo de migração, saiba que existe a possiblidade que os reinos sejam fechados para migrações gratuitas adicionais a qualquer momento e sem aviso prévio caso o reino de destino fique cheio ou nossas metas populacionais sejam alcançadas."
So, to everyone who I've heard/talked to that said: "I'm going to wait to see if the server gets populated, and then I'll transfer", you better hurry. Don't wait for others or you'll probably be left out.
On another important subject, I'd like to suggest that a decent discussion forum for the portuguese community is created (either on these forums or anywhere else), so we can all get together and set our opinions straight.
You'll be getting your own realm forum just like all the other realms.
As you can see, this char is not on a mainly Portuguese server, so I probably wont even be given a chance to transfer.
Maybe in a 2nd round of transfers, but just like many portuguese i know in this realm, we prefer a european community, but would still transfer some of my alts, mainly the scattered ones in different servers besides this one
That is just like any other Free Transfer. But ofc this one is abit different since many will be interested to transfer there
BTW, Nocturnos will be recruiting for our late-night raidtime, 01h-04h AM, on this new realm.
24/11/2011 05:23Posted by RotterjinSo, that would imply that a realm forum was created BEFORE there was a realm. Not likely to happen.
Blizzard work in mysterious ways.
Blizzard have been known to open the realm forums before the servers are open. There's still time for them to do it yet. I haven't seen a new realm name anyways.
24/11/2011 05:23Posted by RotterjinI'm suggesting the community to create "a" forum (as in- place of discussion") to discuss this issue.
I could put something up for that but I'm not seeing many ppl that would use it, being unnoficial and all, and even if ppl would use it hopefully we will get a official place soon.
We actually have a version up on our dev box, so soon! =)
26/11/2011 20:17Posted by RotterjinVentobravo is terrible, not only it is the name of one faction capital (and the other faction would feel victim of a bias), but it also sounds bad. Maybe it can be named after some lore character, so it doesn't need to be translated. Thou right now I couldn't care less about it's name.
I didn't added it since I thought It wouldn't matter much for us, but the names of the brazilian servers are Goldrinn (PVE) and Nemesis (PVP)
In that line of thought I guess our server will be named by one of the other Ancient Defenders. So something like:
Aviana / Aessina / Tortolla
26/11/2011 20:17Posted by RotterjinThou right now I couldn't care less about it's name.
Same here. Getting more official info on the server itself would be nice.
We had them saying about server in europe and in brazil at the same time, tho nothing more for us while for brazil is almost daily, having their own site and all now...
could be fun :P
For the portuguese player-base that isn't in the same time zone as most of the rest; not having to pay for the transfer would be awesome, since most of those who would transfer there would more easily fit in the guilds there, because of their professional schedule. At least this factor will be the most decisive for me. Since most of the European guilds raid from 19h-23h (server time) 18h-22h (Portugal).
I have some information for you all that should clear up most of your questions;
We will be opening a Portuguese realm on the Blackout battlegroup, that will be named Aggra and will be a PvE realm. It will be open for migration and character creation on December 7. More details about this will be communicated to you at a later point.
We have no information to share on this topic at the moment, but will have more details communicated to you in the coming days.
You do not need to use the Portuguese language pack to be able to play on this new realm. You will only need a European active World of Warcraft licence.
24/11/2011 04:12Posted by OrdhorIf Server gets full right away, will more servers be added? And when?
Right now, only one PvE Portuguese realm is planned to be open. Should we decide to open additional realms (PvP or PvE) we will let you know.
24/11/2011 04:12Posted by OrdhorWhen will the Portuguese Site in Europe be up?
The European site should be launched in the coming days and we will give you more information on this as soon as possible.
The Portuguese realm will be situated in one of our existing European data centres, and our operations team is always working with the major internet providers in order to ensure the best game experience possible.
Not to worry if some of the questions have not been answered JUST yet, we are still working on getting some more information about this for you and hope that you are pleased with the answers thus far :)
