Topic (Sticky) Considering on migrating? (Blade's Edge needs YOU!)
Edited by Orgrr on 08/04/13 18:30 (BST)
Welcome to the Blade's Edge Community! Blade's Edge is an EU PvE realm that used to have a well established community. I have been away from the game for almost two years, and things change in two years. As a matter of fact, ALOT has changed since I last played. Many players have either left the game or the server, and now we are in need of new players to re-establish the once so wonderful community! BLADE'S EDGE NEEDS YOU!
If you are thinking on migrating here, I suggest reading the following information first about the realm's pve progression, the various guilds, the pvp activity of the realm, community/events etc.
Blade's Edge PvE progression
Blade's Edge has established a pretty decent progression and is residing at No. 150 on the EU realm ranking (tier15 overall).(Source: http://www.wowprogress.com/realms/rank/eu) We've also established the 135th place on the tier 15 10-man EU realm rankings. 25-man progression isn't really worth mentionning since we don't have a rank in the tier 15 25-man EU rankings. If you are looking for a progressing realm with a good spirit of competition, then Blade's Edge might just be the place for you! For more information about the guild rankings on Blade's Edge, I'm pleased to redirect you to Ïron's progression threads.

Guilds of Blade's Edge
Blade's Edge has a variety of guilds at the moment. Are you looking for a social guild to chat with other players whilst gaming? Or are you rather the type of player that likes to progress through all the new content Pandaria has to offer us with great dedication? Whatever type of guild you are looking for, Blade's Edge has them all! I would redirect you to a thread about the guilds of Blade's Edge, but unfortunately that thread hasn't been updated for quite some time now. (I will create my own thread with a list of all guilds as soon as possible)
PvP on Blade's Edge
First of all, Blade's Edge is a PvE-realm. But that doesn't mean the players on the realm are not into PvP! I don't know if there are still guilds that do the occasional rated bg(Scream Aim Fire?), I do know however that the current alliance/horde ratio is at 62.58% Alliance and 37.42% Horde (source : http://www.wowrealmstatus.net/servers/eu/blades_edge.php) If you want to migrate with your guild or friends to Blade's Edge for some PvP fun, you're always welcome, it might just bring the PvP spirit back to life! If you're looking for pure PvP, I suggest you go check out the PvP realms.
Blade's Edge Community / Events
Blade's Edge had (in my opinion) one of the greatest communities of all EU realms (I've been on about 5 realms now). The majority of the players residing here are still friendly and helpful. The server's just not that populated anymore as it used to be. If you're new here, Don't be afraid to ask any question, we don't bite ;).
Conclusion : If you are looking for a new realm to play some PvP, progress with great dedication through new raiding content, or if you just want to socialize and help rebuild great community, then Blade's Edge is just the realm for you!

Last time i checked the Balance on this server was pretty close to 50/50 erring on alliance side. Might have changed a little but i think most people would agree its one of the best balanced servers around.
There are pleny of people on alliance side that love pvp, we are just a little more spread out.
TolBarad is a bad example, as whoever wins can hold onto it for a long time, alliance help all night last night, but thats just down to poor design really.
Main thing is there is always a very good turn out for TB and i dont think there is much of a queue to get in on either side now they fixed that lame ass exploit of homour.
Community wise, i agree community spirit is tops. Very little trade spam and most people are pretty grown up (i said "most", not "me"). There are some great progress guilds on both factions and some more easy going raid guilds too.
Economy here is very competitive and pretty much garaunteed whatever you need, it will be on the AH.

I'm playing right now on this realm. I haven't got very far, so i can't judge anything. Is this realm strong and friendly? I hope there wont be nor there isn't any massive leaving or the atmosphere that wants you to leave? It's my first time playing in official, Blizzard realms, so i really want to choose the best PVE realm and at some higher level i dont want to migrate or just start again in new realm. I see there's a lot of hussle around about the last expansion's bad side. So could you please give me an advice so i wont be disappointed in the near/far future?

people here arent friendly and they don't like each other. that's why when some guild falls apart many people are transferring away from the realm instead of joining another guild. oversized egos and genuine belief that they are very best wow players is widespread here. with people leaving wow on a daily basis because cata failed to meet expectations and was focused on revamping leveling experience instead of providing high-end content this realm is as good as dead. gradually guilds will get smaller and smaller, some will merge and then they will get smaller and smaller and fall apart, people will be transferring off and one day you will log in and see dead world. either you will stay here on a dying realm or go to a living one where you won't get accepted to any high end guild as a new player. unfortunately wow is going downhill.
