Sweet... eagerly awaiting news on Terokkar. I have 10 90's on there, and the 11th is 89... would like to know which realm will get my free "auto-90" in Warlords so I can stay with my guild.

Of course, you could just lift the per-realm character limit for us altoholics... :-)

Still waiting on Naz'grel + Nesingwary/Vek'nilash. Really, what happened to it? It was planned for the last batch, why was it pulled off and why is it still not replanned?

It'll probably be something you do via account management. Similar to how scroll of res made someone 80.

I suppose you are joking but, in fact, the only real solution for the inequity of players having more than 11 characters available to them on connected realms is to just let us all have up to 50 characters on one realm (or to spread them out however we want). Connected realms are creating just too much disparity between subscribers. Getting rid of the per realm cap is the only viable solution.

still no arathor + skywall guess they are waiting to do us last.
Could you please connect some of the RP servers?

I'm fearing that if you hold back any longer there's going to be a 1:10 Horde Alli imbalance on BWR

Yes please connect some of the R/P servers, some of us, (like The Scryers) are listed as medium and it is a LIE we are D E AD ....

Can we please not get forgotten, others like MG and WRA are populated, we are not, so please maybe connect the dead ones together ???

Did Nazgrel ever get connected to any servers? It was supposed to but I never heard of anything about it again, it is not in the completed connections list.

I never heard a update about it.

Pretty much, The low servers/new players ones must be undead.

Wait... Undermine and Anvilmar is actually happening?

That throws the datacenter-collapse theory out the window.

*The Forgotten Coast and Warsong/Balnaazar/Gorgonash


THIS is a big deal. Forgotten Coast is in the Phoenix datacenter, but the other three are all in Chicago. That's unprecedented.

The Anvilmar/Undermine connection is only weird because it's two New York realms getting connected together without first being connected to something in Chicago.

The whole datacenter theory is out the window if these two connections go through.

Every time I see one of these threads pop up, I get all excited.

Then I look at the list of servers, and then I am sad.
