Ravenholdt and Population Issues

I, for one, am growing a little tired of the population issues on our server. I posted the above thread trying to draw some players here, based on the advantages of being free of the scourge of CRZ.

We're hurting on the Alliance side economy-wise. We're hurting activity-wise across the entire server.

I fully admit to being one of the main gripers about PvP, but I am going to try a different attitude from now on. While I'm not hot on PvP (and frankly, I suck at it) I will abide with it if we can balance it out. Having a good population of people makes it far easier to tolerate.

In short, we need more people here. Horde, Alliance, it's all good. But Alliance mostly.

It's time to fix this shiat.

EDIT: misspelled my own dang server name. Fix't now.

In order for this to work, we need to keep that forum thread elevated with constructive, helpful commentary.

If people can occasionally post positive things about the server, that would be helpful. Not all at once, but every hour or so, if possible. That will keep the thread nicely bumped and hopefully on the front page.

I have tried minimize the negatives that I see, without burying them entirely. If anyone else wishes to mention those, I ask that you avoid flaming, is all.

As I stated in the thread, I'd rather people come with eyes wide open.

But marketing never hurts.

Just a warning, though a large pop server can be fun, enjoyable with lots of activities and very profitable, there is a number of drawbacks to be aware of.

Log In Ques. I can recently recall a log in que on DS where I was number 3500+, that is not fun. Added to that, the juvenile trade chat commentary and the PVP hero's who feel that all lifes exploits evolve around ratings and basically forget that this is a game. Following that statement, there will be an influx of those that will not respect others in their attempts at RP'ing with in the game. Now though I dont RP in some regards, I do respects others rights in their style of play and will not interfer or disrupt.

Just food for thought.

I think login queues are quite a ways in our future.

As for the other problems, I have no issues with reporting people who are being jackwagons.

True, but sometime the "jackwagons" simply over whelm the ability of Blizz to deal with and they just look the otherway. Much like the botting problem that has infested WoW like termites in a rotten tree.

Before we go much further, I apologize if anyone thinks I am intending to speak for the server - that is not my intent (that was mentioned to me earlier today).

I do think we have a problem and I decided to make a post about it to try and fix the problem. That's it. I do value our community (way more than you think) - I just want more people on our server to liven up the world in general. Orgrimmar is pretty full of people and it would be nice to have similar in Stormwind again.

All of that activity will spill out into the world if we give it a chance.

Hours ago. But people report everything over there.

I don't think that anyone thought you were trying to speak for the server, Durh - or at least, that's not what I thought at all.

So often, people are content to sit back and complain about things or deride others without taking the initiative to change anything for the better. I commend you for taking action to bring about the change you want to see on the server! I think Ravenholdt could benefit from some more people, especially people who are looking for the type of server and community we can offer. =)

It was mentioned on a different medium than these forums. I just wanted to get ahead of that one as much as possible. :D

If you don't get reported in General, you haven't made a point. If you have made a point, you've made some lurking neckbeard spill his cheetos in shaking nerd rage.

Durh I agree with your points, I don't think you have sounded like you are speaking for the server.

We do need more people, and fresh people. To do that we need to not only be attractive, but actually be a good place when they get here.

Knocking our realm, trashing whatever about it, hurts us. Few do it, and those who do do it deliberately. We have to drown them out. It can be done. Their numbers are few.

The most important thing though is to build, burnish and advertise the great things about our realm, which is our community.

Um, so I'm sort of not helping the whole Ally population issue, what with being in a SWTOR phase at the moment.

But for thread bumping purposes, I'll mention that if I pop in for a few minutes to work on tradeskill I tend to loose the whole night for SWTOR leveling purposes. It's hard to log out of a community that's made out of concentrated awesome.

Good job with this thread Durh.

Several players will be coming to check Ravenholdt out based on that thread alone!

Thank you.

I talked to one person last night who might be bringing in several people from Moon Guard. I remain hopeful that we can restore some of what made this server awesome.

I really feel like this thread was a great idea, Durh! I'm excited at the number of people who are going to give Ravenholdt a chance because of this. =)

I rolled a Panda Priest alliance side. Got to Stormwind and the city wasnt empty at 4:30am. I may bring this mage over come monday.

Would love to get away from CRZ and who knows I never gave RP a try, it might be fun.
