The Scryers server classification?

This thread is going to be about why the server should be changed from a RP server to a RP-PvP or a PvP realm. In all my years of playing on this server I have seen more players PvP than anything I rarely see any RP going on. This thread should be about the server uniting to make a change happen instead of bashing on one another (The bashing should happen after the change lol). So lets hear some opinions on if or why the server classification should be change.

I endorse this change, it would allow the server to expand and attract more dedicated and serious raiders and PVPrs.

I couldn't agree more with Khorne. I've always played on The Scryers and I've only seen role play around Burning Crusade and Wraith of the Lich King. Only a few times have I spotted role play on this server. Now PvP, that's another server. All I've seen on this server is mainly world PvP and the occasional raids. I know they're may be a role player or two out there, so I can see RP-PvP being quiet reasonable.

I haven't role played in ages, so this would be an interesting change. Something to make me start playing again on The Scryers!

I was born and raised Scryers, and have been here since middle of BC. Sadly, many people who have been here a long time would say that BC was the most fun this server had. There was a sense of community, anyways...saying all that over again is beating a dead horse.

This server is dying and something needs to be done.

The pvp you see on this server is typically the same group of people fighting it out over and over again. The pvp aspect is still a vast minority on this server, it just might seem greater due to a smaller server population.

I really don't think a reclassification would work, simply because the verdict is out on this realm. We are near the bottom of the barrel (even though we do have some top players, in the pvp and the pve realm), and other servers tend to stay far away from us.

I am not saying your suggestion is a bad idea, just kind of hard to polish a turd and call it something else. What i think Blizzard needs to do is merge low population/dying servers together. However that could go over as well as putting two homeless people and bath salts in a locked room together.

The Scryers is the Hotel California of WoW.

If you got out, count your blessings and move on. Don't ever look back.

While I would welcome the change (I may be playing extensively on a PvP server if the world PvP claims for MoP turn out to be true), the only people who are going to see this are the few saps (present company included) who actually read the Scryers forums.

If you really want to start a petition for change, make a thread in the suggestion forum and link it here for easy access.

We just moved to this server, it is NOT a dead server. We have found the community by and large very welcoming. There is a ton of talent pvp and pve wise here. I would welcome the change but I dont know that anyone should say it is a dead server.

I think Slipp is right, in under a year I created a guild and brought it to one of the most active and varied guilds on horde side, we have PVP factions with RBG teams, arena teams and spec specialists for people wanting to get into PVP, our PVE side, though the core of it has gone through much change is strong and thriving again, we clear DS 4 times a week and are finally progressing into heroics again. We help toons to level, to advance their professions and to fine tune their specs to their play style.

What I find on this server is that the talent pool is shallow, there are a few truly amazing players and the rest are either not realizing their potential or not interested in truly pushing through the game content, just logging in as a distraction and an amusement.

If the server classification did change I think it might at the very least show that the server is evolving and begin to attract more serious players.

Slipp and Moos, you are both correct. The Scryers does have skilled players at pve and pvp. The Scryers still does have a good community. Please don't take what i am saying as being negative. Its hard to explain to people who haven't been here from the or near the beginning of this server. When i say dead, its compared to what it was. Its a shell of its former self.

This pretty much sums it up. Believe me when i say i want The Scryers to be successful, its my home. It starts with us as a community. We have to want it. Even if Blizz changed the classification (which i am not against), i think WE have to change. Which has been a constant battle on the scryers.

As much as I would like to see Blizzard pull off a server classification change, I doubt it will happen... (My first post on the forums, never thought I would use this website for anything) >.<

Agreed. Rp-pvp.

I absolutely loathe PvP servers. Scryers would lose so much of its homely factor by changing. Just because YOU do not see RP does not mean that it does not happen. I see at least one group per week, I've even done some myself. Want to know why you've never seen it? Whispers. And if not whispers, I go to butt-!@#$ing Egypt. I don't sit in the middle of Org and scream LOOK AT ME, I'MMA RPING, WOOOOHOOOOO! Claiming that no one RPs is s very small-minded thing to claim in my opinion. People seem to think re-classifying will sudden change Scryers when it won't. It will take away some of its quaintness, but only hard, sustained effort from raiders and PvPers will make a better name for our home and when, WHEN we do, more will come. Even RPers, and Scryers should welcome them with open arms.
