If you are thinking of transferring to a new server (alone, with guild, starting fresh) I highly suggest you check out Gul'dan!
What you should know about Gul'dan:
We are a social and friendly server in which most value the community they have within their guilds and on server.
Gul'dan is a pvp server, and since there's a sense of conflict between the factions, the factions tend to be close knit. Most of us find pvp thrilling and fun, especially if you're Horde. Horde definitely runs Gul'dan. Those that are into pvp will also enjoy World Pvp which is unique and more challenging since it will require some players to be ready for anything at any time. We have a lot of players interested in pvp on this server. I personally don't think that Horde has much to worry about when it comes to griefing considering the server is primarily ran be Horde (sorry allies : /) so it's somewhat hard to mess with us. But thx to xrealms we have more to mess with lol.
The server is a central server (Chicago time), which tends to be the best type of server to be on when progressing. Eastern servers tend to be too early, while pacific time servers are too late. Central is a good medium for most people. We have guilds that raid (pve and pvp) at different times in the day, so there should be many options for you to be a part of. Plus, if you are either transferring your guild over here or may be thinking of starting fresh on this server, central servers is a safe bet to go because you can find raiders from almost anywhere that may be interested in your raid times.
We're a low populated server (But we mainly fluctuate between low and medium now), which means we don't have to wait through terrible wait queues during peak hours or wait til other people have completely logged off on a certain realm to log in. This server is usually very welcoming of new players (except for those that just want to troll for funs). Most guilds are more willing to be helpful to newer players and have a higher patience for less experienced players than other servers. Although we're friendly to newer players, there's a lot of experienced and well rounded players/guilds on Gul'dan that are looking for players similar.
We don't have huge competition over resources (like herbs and mining nodes like a high pop server might) and we don't have the problems of finding important quest mobs. Since we don't have a crazy amount of peeps in main capital cities, we don't have the lag issues, disconnects or computer problems.
Overall, playing on Gul'dan is enjoyable. We have great players with different levels of experience and play skill. People are friendly here and is a permanent home for many of us.

Gul'dan is a great server and I you should think about coming to Gul'dan!
Add me for more info:
Please dont add any griefing or trolling to this post.. this is primarily about what is good about Gul'dan and why people should transfer here (whether alone as a person or as a full guild).
If you would like to add to this post as to why you enjoy being on Gul'dan, and why peeps should xfer here, please reply!
With all due respect, I can't recommend this server to any Alliance.
If there were at least any kind of solid base, maybe.
But Gul'dan is a bad place for alliance. It's always been this way, but it has finally reached critical mass.
Unless you bring your entire guild, don't make the mistake my blue friends.
We have a few alliance that are working on rebuilding that side, but I wont disagree that it's difficult on that side.
I happen to be horde, and the players that have talked to in regards to this server was mainly horde... so from my point of view as to how things are on the realm isn't bad. We would definitely like more alliance to come and I would like to see Alliance guilds and people to prove these guys above wrong!
But I spend most my time with horde and we have a great community on server. The guilds are helpful and like I stated in original post, I truly enjoy being on Gul'dan. We're hoping to share that with more like minded players.
You mean for pvp? You're prolly right lol.
I can name quite a few priests that are very active in my guild (pretty much on every day).
Cannaestia (Spriest/disc Priest in Team Canna BIS and my co-gm)
Idontknow (Spriest in Team DisneyLandPimpz and Vet in my guild)
Moondwells (Spriest in Team DisneyLandPimpz and Raider rank in my guild)
Sloppycab (Spriest in Team Canna BIS and raider rank)
Oharroprease (Spriest in Team Canna BIS and b/u raider rank)
Xaleac (Disc MS in Team Burnt Cereal and raider rank)
Grobix (Spriest in Team Double Tap and raider rank)
All the above are active raiders in guild and are pretty much on every day...
In total, we have 19 Priests that are at max lvl and are above alt ranks (so main toons) and all have been on in past week. :)
SO fatherhazus.. you're not alone!!!
As for the server its great! I feel as though I could stay here forever!
Agreed! I love this server! <3
I personally have been playing on Gul'dan since TBC and some of my closest friends come from this server. I have played on other servers and I don't think any of them have quite the same qualities as Gul'dan. On Gul'dan I have always felt at home and like I was with friends 100% of the time. On other servers, I've felt alienated and pretty alone, but I think that Gul'dan has an element of it's own that serves as a fluffy pillow to land on when transferring.
