I just came back after not playing for a little over 6 months and am rather shocked by how dead everything feels. Me and my friend just leveled from 85 to 90(this character) over the past few days and saw less than a dozen horde and alliance players combined in our entire questing experience. Even when we went to that new 5.1 questing hub we saw no one!
I thought CRZ was suppose to fix this. I remember before taking my 6 month break that CRZ filled zones with tons of players, some times it was rather annoying but at least there were people. What happened?
I have played since pre-bc, though not at the very start, and Blizzard has done server merges over more vastly populated realms than this in the past. I know server merges LOOK bad but this kinda just sucks. Yeah, you can use to dungeon finder and always get a group. Yeah, you can use the LFR for raids... But the server just feels so dead. Even in getting those groups are easy, its a bummer to come back to seeing vast, empty, zones. The last time I did a /who 1-90 it came up with 49 results total for the alliance side... Maybe I am not playing at the prime server time, but even then that is really depressing to see.
Server Mergers are a bummer, but maybe Agamaggan should be considered for one. I miss seeing a large number of players. Pre-BC, BC, and Wrath had swarms of players at the very least in the cities. Now that towns are all barren and desolate, let alone the actual zones.
I'll refer you to another thread recently created about this topic somewhere on below this thread.
Since you're coming back from a break, I'll clear things up for you:
CRZ does not affect the new Pandaren zones. Travel to the Dark Portal or outside of SW or Org to see CRZ in action.
/who only displays a MAXIMUM of 49 people. If you /who smaller partitions you can get a more accurate idea of how many people are online. (/who mage, /who 1-20, /who 90, etc.)
