but pertaining to your comment technically blizz isnt taking anything away, stormwind still has chogall only same with shrine. they only populated the cities that no one goes to and the lands. So it's not really affecting you.
Come to think of it, when I landed in SW there was someone from Stormreaver there afk by the flight master. Couldn't tell ya if maybe he would have phased if he ran out into the trade district or something but still, I saw him there last night. And IF has a considerable amount of crz action happening there! They were near the AH and everything. Granted, they were tapping into their own market when they spoke to the auctioneer but..it seems to be in major cities as well..as long as those cities are low on bodies D:
Note: On the Horde side, I have not seen crz happening in Org...but I have seen it just outside Org where everybody duels. It's also noticeable in UC and T Bluff!
if i wanted to talk to people and compete for nodes id play on a real server.
Funny enough, the same feels true for the Alliance near the Dark Portal. ;p

oh hey wow.realmpop.com
now has an explanation on the main page of how they get their numbers....interesting...
from the main page :
"What - We currently record character names, races, classes, genders, levels, and guild memberships for all characters on every realm in the US and EU regions.
How - To get the list of characters for a realm, first we record all the characters who posted to the auction house. Then we fetch and record their guild rosters. This should cover the majority of characters on a realm. To avoid getting listed, a character must never post to the auction house, and never belong to a guild where a guild member posts to the auction house.
Who - It's important to remember that we're simply counting the number of characters seen for each category. This does not mean the number of players, nor the number of actively played characters. We can't efficiently get activity data yet, so some characters may not have been played for a long time."
thought I'd share that since some of us including myself were wondering about it earlier in the thread. :D

I haven't leveled a new toon in awhile. I have about two toons under 85 So as for cross realm zones in the redone 1-60 questing area I haven't experienced it much if any at all.
Though from my previous experience, most of the Cho'gall Horde are PvE heroes, (not saying this is bad) but I don't think I've gotten ganked too often while leveling. I think the worst zone for me was when I was leveling in Nagrand.
I do enjoy the cross realm zone somewhat. Though it should be limited to those who are on your b.net list.
