Topic BLIZZARD: Scilla population
This realm is just horribly dead.
Our economy is in the tank. The idea that between gathering some of your own materials and buying/bartering for the rest is inherent to WoW. Yet almost no-one is posting anything on the auction house. Last AH scan for Scilla on 1/5/2013: 5,243 auctions. On the Bronzebeard, a medium server, same day there were 17,061. Kil'jaeden, a high pop server, had over 40,000.
It is impossible to create a PUG in server to do anything. RBG's are essentially unmakable. It is actually unfun to carouse thru the world and interact with other peeps. Mostly because there aren't other peeps! 10pm on 1/5/2013 in Org there are 8, including myself, 90's online. It is dramatically higher on server's with reasonable populations.
Please, for pity's sake, help us get to a reasonable population.
I have been on Scilla since 2007 and I have seen this server go through quiet times on many occasions but it has never been this bad.
If it wasn't for BGs, LFG, LFR and cross realm zones then we would be unable to do anything or see anyone.
It really is a shame seeing Scilla die like this.
The solution of transfer off and let it die seem to be somewhat weak, people that played and rolled on scilla ( I have three toons there myself but rerolled on different server because of the wanted to go alliance and at the time couldn’t have both factions on the same PVP realm) should have to pay extra to get the same experience that others are getting different realms. Why should I be penalized because blizzard does not have a system in place to deal with dead and dying realms?
/Y I AGREE ONE HUNDRED PERCENT! WHEN YOU ASKED NICELY FOR MY REALM TO HAVE
VOLUNTEERS TRANSFER OFF A MORE POPULATED SERVER, I FOLLOWED MY GUILD. THEY
WERE FRIEND I ENJOYED PLAYING WITH. SCILLA HOWEVER IS NOW A DESERTED
ISLAND! COUNTLESS TIMES THROUGHOUT THE DAY ILL TYPE /WHO 90. WOW USUALLY
10-20 PEEPS. I KNOW THAT'S ENOUGH FOR ME TO GROUP UP WITH TO GET SOME OLD
DUNGEON ACHIEVEMENTS I AM MISSING ON THIS TOON, BUT COME ON, DO YOU THINK
THEY ALL REALLY WANT TO GO? I HAVE PUT NUMEROUS ITEMS FOR JUST BID
STARTING FOR 1 GOLD AT THE AH AND SADLY THEY GET RETURNED BY MAIL. THIS IS
JUST SAD AND IF THERE WERE NO CRYING FOR THE HORDE, I WOULD BE IN TEARS.
PLEASE HELP US FIND A SAFE SOLUTION, I AM SCARED GOING TO PUG WEBSITE CHAT
FINDERS FOR FEAR I MIGHT LOG IN TO FIND ALL MY CHARACTERS NAKED TO SUPPORT
CHINA'S ECONOMY. LATELY I HAVE FOUND MYSELF SPENDING TIME WITH MY WIFE AND
KIDS AND SOMETIMES PLAY TINY CASTLE ON MY IPHONE RATHER THAN LOGGING INTO
Sad but true, been on the server since week one of launch, it has had good times and down times. I was surprised to actually still see 'We Wipe On Trash' still here. I thought they would have left by now. My poor guild has dropped to barely anyone and it's impossible to find decent people for a lowbie guild. I'm here to the end. Ride or Die! Hopefully Scilla Rides on and gains some momentum. Unfortunately, with this server merger crap I don't think Scilla is going anywhere. It's going to be stuck with a Pop of 400.
