Bye WrA and thanks ....

Wyrmrest Accord
Just wanted to say I enjoyed my time here. Thanks to some cool people I met along the way, and some that followed me when I left too.

Cheers and keep yer blade sharp, your wits keen, and yer powder dry!
/salute
Oh yeah ... and to the WrA dwarven community ... keep the faith kinsdwarves! Arsun you're the best damned DK I've ever had the pleasure of PvP'ing with! Especially when playing drunk! if the Bouldershoulder Brigade ever comes back I might be tempted to return just to share in some glorious BG, RBG, and Arena battles with you and your folks again!!!
Wait.. So no more Silveraxe Clan?
What....no epic rematch?

I always knew Dwarves were weak.....
LOL. Well the guild is still on WrA for now, one of my dwarf alts is the GL.

@Kiethoo, we need to coordinate a re-match across one of the cross server zones!
Even though I left the Alliance 2 years ago I still have a soft spot for Dwarves.

May your mug always be full and your pets always kind to you.

good luck.
Thank you Belalyn, that was very nice.

At least the new guild you joined has an acceptable colored tabard :P
Farewell Obmi, I'm a little sorry I abandoned Mordran.
Can I have your stuff?

NAH DAWG. Safe travels.

Seriously though. Your stuff.
LOL thanks all ... Aye Mordran. Well there's always Brotherhood of Iron on WrA. They're solid. Good players, etc. That would make a good home for him.

LOL funny Nakhu. But yes guess who designed their tabard? :) ... actually when The Mountain Guard closed up, some of us stayed around for a bit, but there came a point we realized there was no future there anymore, so we left and formed The Dwarven Vanguard. I strongly argued that we keep the Mountain Guard colors in our tabard and just swap icons from the mountain peak to the large war hammer. My ideas won out. So yes thats a very nice tabard ;)
I just logged in this morning and for Wyrmrest it said population "Medium". Anyone been seeing this on a regular basis? It used to be "High".

this morning

It's comparatively dead before about 6-7 server. Depending on how Blizzard averages the population counts over time, you probably hit it right around the tail end of the deadest hours.
Safe travels. Perhaps I'll one day have the pleasure of fighting you. /fistbump

Not on a regular basis at all, it's high almost every time I've ever checked it. It's 9:00AM and i'ts high population right now.
Ok thanks .... I thought that the population label was a semi-permanently set thing for servers, maybe re-figured every month, etc.

Because I have a personal theory that the current labels do not accurately reflect the server's true numbers anymore since the WoW player base took a big hit with Cata and has only risen a bit with Mists. I do know people who are not on full or high servers have been complaining about ghost towns since Cata now and my theory is Blizzard is loathe to be honest about their player population and its been affecting quality of play on many of their servers.

Theories ... conspiracies .... theories ;)

Best guess I have is it's somewhere between 2 and 6 hours, except for servers marked as "New Players", which I'm guessing is manually set. Might even be tied into the CRZ recalculations (or, more accurately, the CRZ calculations might have been tied into it), since it seems like those would be checking the same sort of things.

Generally I'm guessing this based on most of the server populations reading as "low" after maintenance. It's possible that this is some sort of server-side bug that happens during server startup which reads all values as "Low" no matter what, though I'd doubt that, personally -- hence my guess as to how it's set.
