My understanding was Decerto rerolled on Misha because they were on vek, one of the first servers that allowed transfers. Vek became a high-pop destination for end-game guilds, and the guilds that transferred there began to steal decerto recruits. Decerto began to wish for the days when they were untainted, and thus they chose misha. Ironically, they came here and stole most of the good players. Everyone I knew who was good back in those times had played on another server and rerolled here for various reasons. One reason is High-pop servers can be laggy and you might have to wait to log on. Another example is that CRZ currently makes high pop servers very buggy at zone intersections.
On the other hand, Low-pop servers have inflated AH prices and horrible recruiting pools for raiding. But very little lag, and generally friendly communities and not as many trolls.
Medium pop servers are the best, imo, because they are a little of both. Misha horde is low pop but alliance side is firmly medium. So there are fewer tradeoffs for the allies here. But you can always find something to complain about if you want. On misha it's usually the case that no one has any experience raiding or pvping and so you'll have to teach your recruits everything. Why? Because if you are experienced you'd never roll here. I can say with confidence that everyone who complains about misha sucking was a noob when they rolled here, the reason is obvious. (looking at you OP).
And about the time you do get good at playing your class, you'll probably look around and wonder what the other servers are like, and transfer. Why not? Certainly it's just as much a part of the game as anything, deciding which server to play on. I see this as predictable. But don't be a @%@#*#!% about it... misha isn't going to die, with cross realm tech it's safe to say no servers are going to die, in the end it will be one big server anyways, and besides, your doom and gloom is out of place in a video game, it's just not serious business.
You see, once you've been around the world of warcraft 666 times... you will find... Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name, and their always glad you came, you wanna be where you can see, our troubles are all the same... and that's why I'm going to the pub. Murr, gonna buy you a beer someday still. To all my homies who still rock it here, you got my <3. Cheers!
