The Brawler's Guild & Realm Coalescing

So, if CRZ is going to stick around, at least update the queue position so we can more accurately see what number we are in line.

I've been "30, maybe 40" for nearly twenty minutes now.

And an audible warning when you get close to your turn would be nice.

when did blizzard switch to the euphemism of "Realm Coalescing" from cross realm zones?

it really reeks of newspeak, or should i say "controlling the narrative".

that brawler's guild is CRZ is the biggest piece of garbage, and totally against everything we were told the guild would be.

Quite a shame. It should be named Sitter's Guild, not Brawler's Guild. I've spent hours sitting and have only done 5 matches.

How is this supposed to be a tight-knit, underground community event when it's swarmed with strangers from other servers who I will most likely never see or interact with again?

This was my thought exactly when I heard reports of CRZ in Brawler's Guild.

Hindsight is 20/20, but this entire thing seems so obvious now, hopefully to blizzard as well.

They do this because if you are new to the guild (or maybe your first fight of the day) you get priority queuing it seems. So if they said you were number 33, then someone got bumped up, that would be inaccurate.

This is one feature that I actually like. It would suck worse if you had to wait an hour or two for your first fight because of the CRZ.

Whats amazing is 2 weeks ago blizzard basically said: "CRZ this would be so stupid and ruin the realm community it is supposed to provide".....

Right, I know that, and it could update to reflect that change. You would go from 33 to 34.

Unfortunately it also means more than one fight a day is more painful than it has to be due to a constant stream of people jumping in line.

Disabling, or just severely limiting CRZ from what it is now, would make the queue-jumping unnecessary.

This is terrible right now. Queues are too long. I am fortunate that I did not pay gold for my invite or I would be typing in caps!

I like watching other people, but I'd rather watch arena or BGs.


Yeah watching can be fun, but not for an hour....

I've heard 20-30 minutes, your realm is an hour? They should probably use RC (Realm coalescing) to reduce wait times as well.

I just stood in line for nearly an hour and a half to get a second fight in.

55 minute between pulls. Messed up on last fight, so another hour for 30 seconds of gameplay. Time to troll more I guess.

The hour wait time is BECAUSE of CRZ. Way too many people here at all times, but like no one from my own realm.

To be perfectly honest, I got invited to a cross realm RBG group, and their wait list was A THIRD of what my "coalesced realms" queue time was.

But being in an RBG group, I couldn't sit around for 15 minutes to wait for my turn. So, I guess make some cross realm friends and abuse their wait times until we get a decent response from a Blue.

The fact that this is CRZ still makes me want to puke. It's now full of trolls who spam whisper you as soon as you get teleported into the ring and people who spam /yell and spam in general chat. I'm so glad I got my invite from a rare spawn and didn't pay for it.

Switch it to realm only already.

See our realm forums at http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/1182662/ for more info =)
