Our Server is Dead! (Admin Please Read)
We just have to accept the fact that they don't seem to care about low populated servers :(
They'll do what they did when I started playing and just throw a 'New Player' tag on us and that's about it.
Kalecgos sucks because there aren't enough players. We all agree on that. Having a low population means people want to leave, so they 1) pay for transfers 2) stay and hate life or 3) quit playing.
People are complaining because Blizzard doesn't care enough about the low population servers to do anything for us. It's true. There's no incentive for Blizzard to do anything. Low population servers are money machines for Blizzard.
Blizzard is a business so it's going to do what makes it the most money. Even if Blizzard loses 100 players b/c they hated the experience enough to quit playing, if 100 people server transferred, Blizzard is making more money overall (-$1700/month + $2500/toon, and many people transfer several toons). Unhappiness to the point of realm changing is, if not profittable, not hurting Blizzard enough for them to do anything. Over time, those lost subscriptions will matter. Currently, it's not enough to make blizzard care.
Is Blizzard in it for the long haul? Or, has it run its course and they're just milking its users for whatever they've got? The game gets boring after years of playing it. People have complained about realms like Kalecgos sucking for years and nothing ever gets done about it. We can dream about a merger, but there's no reason for Blizzard to do it when the more it sucks the more money Blizzard makes from transfers.
Our option is to play something else or pay for a transfer so that the server sucking is someone else's problem. Most of my real life friends quit playing on Kalecgos or transferred. For me, I'm not going to pay Blizzard another 75 bucks for transfers on top of the hundreds I've spent on previous transfers, subscription time and the actual games over the years. I'd sooner play something else for 75 bucks and save myself the $200/year subscription.
Just my two cents.

I wanted to explain why we're not getting help and bring up some new things that people might not have considered. Everyone is like, "help our server!" but Blizzard just ignores us and focuses on !@#$ that doesn't matter, like the aesthetics of the game. Really?
