Servers without CRZ?

World’s End Tavern: Role-play and Fan Fiction
Post Limit:
Are there any RP servers that are not subject to CRZ? I am looking for a server with a small town feel — but one that is not dead in community spirit.

Also, I suck at PvP, but I'd consider an RPPvP server also.

Thanks. :)
I'm not sure because I haven't been there, but I heard somewhere Venture Co. doesn't have it.
Venture Co. is CRZ free. We can still call over friends from other servers though.

We are an RP/PVP server, but there are plenty of citizens who aren't PVP oriented, and they get along just fine. You can still participate in world pvp events without having to be 'leet. I have never been rated much over 1500 (and was carried then) and I have no problems doing the grind or farming. You will get ganked on occasion, but camping is considered bad form in the community.

Our population is medium to low, with many well-established guilds and cross-faction/guild co-operation for fun events, so there is also the 'small-town feel'. You will find a majority of the population welcoming and helpful, as well as proud of the community we have built.

If you care to roll an alt on VeCo to check us out, roll a tauren (will be easier for me to pick you up as I live on the Bluff) and I'd be happy to give you a tour of our wonderful community. The best time to find me is nights between 7-9 Central Standard Time (the server is Pacific Time).

...and lastly a plug for my guild, Thunderhoof Clan! 6 years as an all-tauren guild on VeCo, and one of the founding guilds of The DreadHorde, a confederation of RP-oriented PVP guilds.

Hey Aovi, thank you for your detailed response. You've got pride in your server community (and for specific reasons), and that is rather rare.

I am definitely going to check out The Venture Co! However, with regard to Thunder Bluff, my characters tend to complain (jokingly, of course) that you can't find a burger anywhere in your town. :D

The PvP will be a fun change, I think.

Earlier today, I submitted a ticket inquiring about CRZ-free realms. The response I got said that there are no realms "unaffected by CRZ." I submitted a second question asking if The Venture Co was (essentially) CRZ-free because its players seem to believe so. This is actually my third request for info on the same ticket. While I am being specific with my questions, they seem reluctant to name realms that are CRZ-free. I'll let you know if I receive a meaningful answer to my question.

Edit: I picked the wrong toon when posting this.
Here is the final response regarding a CRZ-free Venture Co.

"...Thank you for taking the time to contact us today.

All realms are now subject to CRZ. Only main Faction cities are CRZ-free :)

If there are any other issues we can assist you with, please do not hesitate to contact us, we are just an email away and here to help :)..."


This confuses me because The Venture Co finds itself CRZ-free.
Venture Co is most definitely CRZ free, the only form of CRZ that we have is where you group up with your battle tag friends. If you would like to come take a look around feel free to add me to your battletag friend list and I can bring you over, or you could come roll an alt and check it out.

I've never seen Moonguard Goldshire subjected to crz...though my record for being in 'pornshire' is less then two mins before I had to run away and seek therapy...

Thanks! I never really got into the whole battletag thing, but I definitely plan to check you guys out . :)
Are you guys sure? I'm on Venture Co. and I see all characters in the starting zones from various realms. It appears it is definitely on a CRZ group...
If you are on East coast Ravenholdt is also CRZ free. It's got a nice friendly community too. See for yourself!

Say it isn't so....

Otherwise, the end is near. If Ravenholdt goes the way of CRZ, I'll leave WoW for good.

All servers are CRZ-enabled, which means people can be brought over via cross-realm grouping. Unless something has changed recently, VeCo and Ravenholdt remain in essence CRZ-free because there are no other servers of like-type on their data centers.
You're probably experience the effects of Cross Realm Grouping or CRG, whereby players from other realms are invited to yours through the battle tags. Definitely not the same as CRZ.

For the record, I oppose CRZ, but am quite OK with CRG.

Me, too!

Also, come to Ravenholdt Ionie! We have an awesome little community and the PvP isn't scary.

I think you're safe until someone else can confirm it. If CRZ suddenly became enabled on VeCo, we'd be hearing a lot more about it. Their forums don't have a single person describing CRZ being turned on.

I'd accept CRZ if it was RP-PvP realms only, that way we could maybe get more RP.
AFAIK, Blizzard only CRZ's with like realms (PVP to PvP, RP to RP, PvE to PvE and RP-PvP to RP-PvP).

If you're seeing something different, then I'd definitely like to know.

I definitely feel like Blizzard hasn't exactly been forthright about the whole CRZ business. I may have missed an announcement here or there, but I also think their deliberately hiding some of the information to force people into accepting it. Not that we have much choice anyway ...

WRA had GS merge with you guys about a week ago. I was leveling an alt and had to double-check to make sure I was on the correct RP server.

*spits out drink*
Whaaaat? I've been on WrA for little over a week and I haven't seen goldshire get turned into *twitch* pornshire 0.o

Does this happen if not many Moon guarders are in goldshire?
Isn't Emerald Dream RP-PVP?

Why aren't we affected?
