FAQ
Q. My realm needs connecting, is it on your list?
A. All low and some medium population realms will be connected. They’ll all have a healthy population when we’re done. Don't worry, we're aware of the exact situation on each realm.

Q. When will my realm be connected?
A. We'll keep you posted on the latest information as we get it. It's an ongoing process and the schedule is updated as we progress.

Q. My realm has a lower population than some of those on the list, why isn’t mine being connected first?
A. The order we connect realms depends on a number of technical factors, but we will get to them all.

It might be a new year but its still the same old derisory attempt at customer service from your third rate organisation. I honestly hope you didnt expect a pat on the back for this feeble effort.....

The product you sold/sell is an MMO (MASSIVE MULTIPLAYER), you continue to advertise it as such despite it not being the case for a large percentage of the player base. I like most people chose my server based on the recommendation on your own login service. Implicit in your recommendation is a confirmation that the product will be as advertised over the period of my subscription. We dont pay you to add additional content/petbattles/new character models etc/ that is extra for which you are entitled to charge extra we do however pay you to provide the service as advertised at the point of sale.

So you either need to start commiting more resources to fixing this problem or refunding people for a falsly advertised product. Either way dont for one second think your current rate of delivery is acceptable (expected yes, but acceptable no).

so why the big gap? haven't looked at other dates, but i'm pretty sure there wasn't almost a 3 week gap between one update and the next

Well, their tech people probably did the same as me. Took a long holiday starting on 23rd, and only returning today. Sure there would have been "coverage" over the Christmas/New Year period. But it would have been just for issues and not planned work (at least this is how it is, where I work).

Now most people are back to work. It's business (mostly) as usual.

No surprise here really. Now I'm sure you can't say. But, any hint as to whether this is as I suspect. Aiming towards linking all of these with Defias to make a quite nicely populated single RP-PvP realm group?

I notice. Still no RP (normal) realm love. Many of those are in a pretty nasty state too.

I'm guessing Argent Dawn would be with Moonglade/DMF/ER/SWC and the Sha'tar?

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Please do not do this blizzard techs. Just don't. I think ER has a semi decent population. Link the rest except AD.

AD has a very different kind of RP from the other RP realms, well from my experience some time ago at least. I don't think it's everyone's cup of tea. So, linking ALL RP realms together risks causing frictions from both camps. It'd be much safer to have a slightly lower population on the other RP realms linked.

Another reason not to link other realms to AD is because, AD already experiences queues during peak times (albeit very short ones). So it's probably not ideal at all to link that realm with anyone else, since you'd not only be condemning the existing AD players to more queues. But, also all the players from the other realm(s) that have never heard of this concept of login queuing.

There seems to be a lot of servers that desperately needs a connection yet are left in the bin. Are you looking on the actual server side community or are you just speculating in numbers and total populations? Per example, Bronzebeard, has a hell of a lot of Alliance wandering around, yet the Horde are close to Roland Deschain in Mid-world, chasing the Man in Black across the desert.
