In-realm pugs only?

Since the new patch I have noticed that I have no longer been grouping with players from other realms. I am sure many would think this is a non-issue, but for those of us Gurubashi it is an issue.

When I queue for a random and end up in nothing but full Brazilian, non-English speaking, pugs each and every time it makes things quite a bit harder than they need to be.

Before Tuesday it was rare that I would group with another player from Gurubashi. Now it's all I see. Does the random heroic group system prioritize same-realm match-ups over other realms? If so can we change that possibly? Because right now it makes pugging as an English speaker on Gurubashi nearly impossible.

I also noticed a trend, i ran ZA the other night with two guildies, had 2 pugs from same server, then one pug left, got another KJ, then another and another KJ, after that we got a pug from black rock and then moon gaurd or something similar

i think there was a change so that i prefers same realm groups
Dunno could have just been odd coincidence seeing as it was Tuesday and everyone was excited and queuing for new troll content

I don't understand what the OP is saying.

He appears to be saying he plays on a server full of players that speak a different language and is complaining that he ends up in groups with them.

Um...wtf.

the system does seem to be trying to match you up with people from your own realm a bit more


Sounds like a fantastic idea. I still have zero desire to pug but it's better than getting stuck with total strangers with crappy behavior and zero incentive to be anything other than jerks from other servers.

he is playing on a server he doesnt speak the language of by what i've read, probably not the best choice, but you rarely got same server pugs before so it didnt matter

I still hate most of the people on my server, a good majority of them have that self entitled elitist blood that just ruins the dungeon, one of our drops was because the instance had been out for 3 hours and 4/5 of the group did not know the fights

makes me sick

That is exactly what I am saying.

The majority of players on Gurubashi and Warsong are Brazilian. If you pop in to our trade chat you will actually see far more Portuguese being spoken than English. (By a wide margin.)

It's unfair for those of us that speak English to constantly but put in pugs where the language spoken is Portuguese. But I guess on the other side of that coin the Brazilians are loving this.

so why are you, an english speaker, on a non-english speaking server? >.>

unless you live in the region, there's no real reason to do so, even if coerced by "friends" who may or may not even live there either!!!

It's in the patch notes somewhere, The Random Dungeon Finder will now try to pair you up with players from your own realm

That isn't just a coincidence. Many players have stated since the release of the Dungeon Finder that they like the convenience of being matched for a group automatically, but they miss the feeling of community when they're paired with strangers from other realms with whom they might never speak again. So we made a slight change in the way the Dungeon Finder sorts through the queue matching players for a dungeon.

This was a late addition to the patch notes made yesterday evening:

The Dungeon Finder will attempt to place players from the same realm in a party together.

Gurubashi and Warsong are NA servers. Brazilians made them the "unofficial Brazilian WoW realms".

I was practically a day one Guru player. I did not sign up for a foreign server, it just became one through no choice of my own.

Since the introduction of cross realm BGs and pugs the language barrier has been mostly a non-issue. We have our five-six year core vets that raid and when we pugged on alts (like this one) it was rare to see another Guru player.

So that's why my 4-man guild group randomly got a 5th guild member...

I think I'll like this change. Hopefully, it will bring more of a sense of community back. :)

I realize that those of that speak English on Warsong and Gurubashi represent a small portion of your player base, but is there any way we can reach some sort of compromise where we can actually pug as an English speaker on these two realms again?

I've been getting a LOT of Quel'Thelas Portuguese guild groups lately. It's frustrating when I have no idea what they're saying and I ask if they speak English and they don't respond (meaning they don't. I assume).

Well, that is a handy change.

I was wondering what miracles of the RNG kept putting me in groups with 2+ same server players.
