I hope everyone understands that all the problems listed are not Garithos's problems, its the people who play this server, stop feeling sorry for yourself


I won't deny that the majority of Garithos has become a cesspool of whiny, self-centered babies who feel like they are owed something. Still, the low population is a problem, and you can't deny that.

Scrufy, blaming the people who play here for the low population is a joke. What part did we have in this? We have guilds here (at least on the horde side) that have full cleared firelands, and who are well accomplished in rbgs... its just a tight-knit group of people... theres no definitive answer for why a server doesn't grow or what makes one flourish... honestly the most populated and active servers are the oldest as well... it takes a perfect storm for a new server to become great, but it should never be blamed on us... all we are asking is for Blizz to give us a better option considering there are dozens of servers just like ours... we are not alone, and it continues to be an unaddressed problem

ill quit the game at the end of this month after 5 years . Just no Hope


One step closer to my goal. :)
The only problem with garithos is some of the current players. It's a minority of players who dislike how the server currently is. If you hate it so much go someplace else.

I realise that i will never be geared as you are Garithos being really too low population


Making that claim, with the LFR coming out right around the corner is just hilarious, you may as well be saying that you're just a bad player. Ive already got a group of almost 30 people spread out over various servers I know I'll be raiding with. Only the socially inept basement dwelling shut-ins will be the ones not having anyone to group with. Go make some friends and solve your own problems, don't cry to blizzard because of your own shortcomings. They're giving you the tools to choose how you want to proceed, it's up to you to use them.

@Minstral i agree with you. We should fix our own problems. But the thing is. this is a game that we pay monthly for. We pay for this why shouldnt we be able to experience it like other servers? Blizz goes and accommodates new players by giving them free levels and exp. cheap mounts etc. so why when a whole server is crying out cant they accommodate us? I guess cause they know we have 2 options 1 we can spend extra money to give to them for xfers and etc. or 2 quit playing. With the low low population of garithos i doubt it would even matter to them if we did quit. Cause for them itd probably cost more money to fix what we are asking for then they are making from the players on our server. So by us being forced to pay to switch they are probably actually doing better in a financial sense. Its sad really

None of those are valid excuses. As I said, you've got all the tools you'd need to play how you want. If you limit yourself to one server, that is your choice. There is NOTHING stopping you from rolling whatever kind of toon you want on a different server. You yourself even mentioned how much easier blizz has made it to level new characters. For example, I took a bit of extra time, and now Ive got toons on extremely high population servers, toons on PvE servers, ive even got a few on a RP server.

We both pay the same amount for our accounts to play, but I get the feeling I get alot more fun from mine. Why? Because I used the tools blizzard gave me to be able to play how I want. There isn't an aspect of this game I couldnt do if I wanted to, because I didn't limit myself to just one place. You are fully capable of leveling whatever kind of toon you want, wherever you want, for no additional charge. The only thing keeping anyone from enjoying the game to the fullest is their own laziness.

I read the whole thread here and just thought I'd add my two cents here as well ( I'll probably get change ). This is a horse who's bones have been beaten into dust and beyond. However, a gamemaster told a bud of mine just a few minutes ago to post on the forums. Now, mind you, I have no illusions that Blizzard reads these. In fact, I seriously doubt it and even if they do they rarely, if ever take any actions based upon it. But they're my pixels to waste so here goes.

I've been a paying, playing Blizz customer for 6 years. I've got a combined total of 600+ days played on my characters and that's not counting the ones I've deleted. I've paid my dues, just as all of you have. I have not been playing much lately because of another game that does exactly what Blizz should do; listen to customers.

My guild has done NOTHING over the past two months, not even organized suicide. I logged in for the 7 year thing and I got a temporary tabard that gives 7% increased exp for an hour! Wow! Really? REALLY BLIZZ? 6 years of playing and you give me a tabard that isn't even permanent?
Way to recognize players.

Look, I have no animosity. I've enjoyed my time in WoW. but with Kung Fu Pandas coming and loads of mistakes made over the years by Blizz ( let's not forget the Tol Barad fiasco ) I've had enough. I cannot spend 250 bux to transfer all my 85s out of here to a PvE server ( as I said I've paid my dues and am tired of PvP ) and it may or may not make a difference anyway. So, as Blizz ToS says the characters remain their property, so my 15 bux remains mine and I'll be cancelling my account before long here.

I will finish with a wager. I will bet that Blizz will not 1. Allow Free transfers at any time, 2. Allow Free name/race/class changes at any time, 3. have Actual account bound items or 4. give a response to this lengthy ramble. Other games do these things and Blizz is focused on Diablo atm. So ends the reign of WoW as top MMO. Long live the King! I shall miss it and remember it fondly.

Ppl of Garithos I am here to tell you that blizzard truly does not care about you. They could care less how your gameplay is they obviously want your money. Try lvling a lower lvl toon and finding ppl your lvl to quest with they do not exist. When a GM was contacted and asked if there was anything blizzard was gonna do to help the answer was basically NO. When the comment was made that there were talsk of ppl stopping playingthe game the GM said and i quote "Then that is definitley what you should do" . So that is what blizzard tells there GM's to do. They need to help Garithos and refuse to. I started playing 2 years ago and it has never been this bad.

Garithos was once a fairly organized community of players. We had some pretty fun world pvp, some fair raid guilds, and a particularly amusing forum community. There was definitely a lot of love/hate relationships between players and guilds.
Personally, there were very hectic times helping to run a raid guild. There was much time invested, people benefitted. Virtually all of my associations are now gone, save a few, and what I learned in wow, much like in real life personal relationships, is there is an expectation of mutual benefit. When the benefit of association stagnates, people move on. This is what's happened at Garithos.
In order to have a thriving server, guild and overall tight knit community, there must be individual committment to such a cause. It's not easy. Taking action is something you must do. Relying on authority figures or others to make things "right for us" is most generally a failing proposition.

The larger guilds that once thrived on Garithos, were mostly transfer guilds from high pop, high latency and high queue time servers. In Overkills case, it was formed in beta, and cemented by an additional gamer group from prior games. We took action when Warsong had major server issues and didn't wait for Blizzard to fix anything. They created new servers, we took advantage of them. What you have on Garithos is a smooth running server, with low latency, no queues, and the opportunity to build. It's the same Opportunity we took advantage of when Overkill and Xen of Onslaught transferred here when the server opened. Other successful guilds formed throughout the years and have since left. The server was generally vibrant.

As long as Garithos is open there will always be those of you who have the individual desires to accomplish team oriented content. It's imperative you find each other. The forums are a great way for individual players to identify other individuals with the same general goals. Blizzard flooding a server with the remnants of 20 other similarly disfunctional servers is not the answer. This will not created what you're looking for.
Selfless leadership must emerge. It exists, but is silent. Those of you with these traits should find each other. It is you who will establish "community". Newcomers and those who have remained could and should identify those leaders and allow them to lead you. Do not become a burden. If the selfless, silent types who have good judgement can establish a small core of players who achieve, others will seek you out. These types of relationships whether real life friendships, or in game selfless mutually beneficial associations can rebuild Garithos. Blizzard cannot, nor should they be expected, to give you this.

We said it years ago when Silent Requiem left off the server and a lot of others did.
