While that does answer two of the issues, which I also have had trouble with, that doesn't really answer all of the issues and concerns people are having. Personally, I don't like CRZ. it just causes more issues, and people have been asking for a way to opt out of it because some people, like myself, like our low or medium pop servers. Why has there not been any response to the opt out request?
Also, I usually play Alliance on a pvp server, but as it is now, it is unplayable due to griefing. And everytime I have been on a toon leveling on that server, I have been ganked and camped by people not from my server, but from another server, Mal'ganis; everytime it is someone from Mal'ganis. Also, like Sub said, the dark portal is heavily camped by level 90s.
Yes, CRZ is working as intended, because there is a lot more people in the zones, even though those people who are high level are only probably there to harrass the lower levels by ganking them, camping them or killing their quest givers. Of course they could be there to farm pets, which makes it very hard to get some of those rare spawn pets like the Mini Inferno. Luck be on your side with that one!
Also, my hopes were shattered last night, because I got on a flight path to go to Stranglethorn to see if it was raining so I could get the Baby Ape. As I was on the flight path going through the zone I was so happy because it was raining! I thought, "Yay! I finally get it!" But as soon as I landed I got dumped into another realm where it wasn't raining....was a sad sad day. :(
