the only problem would be people having the same names. how would you decide who got to keep the name and who wouldn't. people would be angry for losing there name just because of a merge they had no choice in.

Blizzard figures since they know people would not want a server merge so they can keep their names, they'll just force you to pay to server transfer so they get money. This is why Blizz will not be doing merges unless that server literally has next to zero populates.

an AH that goes between servers may help servers too and they could take several servers that r low pop and combine them

Then realize Blizzard will never merge servers.

...and thank god that the people in charge do not listen to the screams of the masses.

They'll just allow cross server raiding before they do that.

Again, thank god. Blizz understands that server mergers is a band-aid fix. At some point down the road, they will need to do it again, and again, and again.

Many people do not realize, WoW is going to have live servers for a very long time. It could even be decades not years. Working on something that will solve it for the rest of the life of the game is far better than having toband-aid it up every year or two.

Merging servers is the solution to the lack of activity in many servers, there are totally dead servers out there, as well as mid size servers that could use a bump from more players, what is the point in having 250 servers anyway? Blizzard has lost many accounts over the last 3-4 years, its time to adjust the server ratio a bit more.

Soon the only servers you get to choose from will be the following; West Coast: PVP and PVE
East Coast PVP and PVE. and of course, RP and RPpvp.

As I said almost 2 weeks ago, server mergers are a band-aid.

I'm on a realm that I joined in 2005 and it's marked as a medium population realm. However, actually playing on it the last year or two it's felt more dead than active. They do need to merge them. They must not be doing it because they must think people will return and in doing so re-create the 2006 over population problem if they did merge them. They're giving us cross-realm zones, but it looks like you have to group with people for that. It's not the same.
