Thank you Takralus!
I will watch this space :)
Grats to the first 8 listed I do hope it goes smoothly for you whenever it happens!
Thank you for the quick update! Very good news and I am also very happy to notice that several people (myself included) already got some their wishes granted!
3 loud cheers! *does a happy troll dance*
24/10/2013 13:02Posted by LswindrunnerI've updated the original post with new info for y'all :)
I have to take my bow off to you, and apologise a little, you are going about this the correct way.
All of the realms you have listed so far are the lowest popped realms in the EU.
The new numbers won't be fantastic by any stretch of the imagination, but at least by slowly merging these low pops together they get less and less and will obviously be connected again once they are stable.
I was wondering why are all the realms getting merged PvP ones, both in US and here, without any PvE ones getting merges?
Any particular reason for this?
Why are low pop realms connected with other low pop realms? it should be a high pop realm with a low pop realm.
Any plans on connecting full servers with dead ones and moving people over. Or just splitting the server in two, but keeping them connected?
Here in Draenor its a mad house. 1000+ queue lines some times, was made to wait for an hour and a half once.

"In the end, we’re considering a number of factors, including Battlegroup, population, and faction balance."
25/10/2013 08:51Posted by DroliazWill you keep adding more realms if connected realms are still too low?
I'm sorry, once more, but You are connecting 2 COMPLETELY empty servers to emeriss. why would you connect 3 realms together while 1 has an "ok" amount of 90's, emeriss in this case, and 2 thats made of thin air? isn't it better to connect hakkar with emeriss and crushridge with another realm like emeriss? I don't see it fullfilling the purpose of populating the realms further, nor help the technical issues by mixing in massive amounts of realms without it changing anything.
hakkar and crushridge basically contributes nothing to emeriss, but ofc, the other way around, emeriss contributes to them, But why would you attach 2 empty realms to the same one? wouldn't it be serving a much better purpose connecting those nothingness realms to one other realm?
Edited spelling mistakes
after seeing that Scarshield Legions and Spooregar will be merged,
arent it better to just merge the RPPVP servers with each other?
Hey Vaneras i´m curious to know whats th target population for each final group of connected realms. Something like a high populated server? or Medium?
Thanks a lot.
Yep!25/10/2013 14:10Posted by KarlotteAlso, do custom chat channels work "crossrealm"?
I see there is now a currently linked realms sticky: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/8715582685
Just a suggestion to you blues. It might be as the list gets longer to split the list by locale.. At the moment the length is manageable. But soon it might be hard to find your realm.
Just a thought.
Below you will find the list of the realms which have been connected so far. More will be added as we proceed.
Chromaggus and Shattered Halls
Runetotem and Killrogg
Burning Steppes and Kor’gall
Crushridge and Emeriss/Hakkar
Sporeggar and Scarshield Legion
Temple Noir and Naxxramas
Vek’lor and Arthas
Mug’thol and Dethecus/Theradras
Taerar and Echsenkessel
Shen’dralar and Zul’jin
20/11/2013 10:41Posted by AndraiiGarrosh and Shattrath completely vanished from the list, awesome.Confirmed (for whatever my confirmation is worth). I have them on my list marked as delayed. So they were scheduled and there was a problem.
Now they're in neither the connected, or to be connected list.
20/11/2013 10:44Posted by XayoOnce everything is connected, will such clusters have their own names? I'm guessing it would be quite usefull and realm forums should be connected like that too.
i think there's little error.
French realm Naxxramas is already connected to Temple Noir.
So the next connection is Arathi ans Naxxramas/Temple Noir.
20/11/2013 12:43Posted by NerrawDid the Haomarush/Dragonmaw connection get scrapped? I don't see it in the top post anymore, despite being listed in the Nov 5th update.
20/11/2013 12:48Posted by ШокохрюшкаWhat about Russian realms? There's even no thread about Connected realms on Russian forums...
@Takralus: One minor edit, if you don't mind. *chuckle*
Current lists have both:
Boulderfist and Chromaggus/Shattered Halls (shortly)
Daggerspine and Chromaggus/Shattered Halls (more info later)
Maybe edit the latter to:
Daggerspine and Chromaggus/Shattered Halls/Boulderfist?
21/11/2013 07:10Posted by KolanjiErhm, just a few days ago it said that Bladefist and Zenedar was going to connect, but not anymore? Why?
The Breaking News say:
Agamaggan, Emeriss, Hakkar and Theradras.
Lets hope this is a visual mistake and you wanted to say Crushridge instead of Theradras.
If not, you may encounter problems with the language being Theradras german and the other 3 servers are english.
Lets hope its only a mistake and you wanted to say Crushridge! =)
21/11/2013 08:56Posted by HimmelfeskHi, was just wondering if you have any kind of timeframe on the project as a whole? I'm very eager to ask about my own realm, but I know you probably don't know spesifics yourselves even :)
21/11/2013 09:02Posted by ThirnI just wish realm forums were merged too, it is going to be impossible to use when your realm has 4 different forums.
21/11/2013 09:46Posted by JakfuNot a single alliance raiding guild on the Agamaggan/Emeriss/Hakkar/Crushridge connection. -.-
Can we fix turalyon horde before WoD please?
Kinda hard to recruit for mythic on a dead server side.
So, will all servers, except the already high populated ones, be merged at some point?
Because if not, the servers that don't get merged will be left out and slowly die off. I find that a little unfair.
22/11/2013 20:54Posted by Trelw@Allianceduck: I have to point out that is already weekend and rather late, too. Most blues are probably catching (hopefully a good night's) sleep. Anachronos is not on the lists yet, but the same applies to many other small realms, too. Blues can not give definitive answers to questions to which they do not (yet) have one. I am not a blue, but I can say this much. I think Anachronos will get connected, but as to when and with which realm(s) remains to be seen later. If you read back on the thread, you will notice that some answers are very short and not everyone gets a personal reply. Even so, things can and do happen.
22/11/2013 21:46Posted by KevaverTakralus how do you define a low population, Hellscream is listed as a mid popped realm, but so was it durning vanilla, tbc, wotlk, while back then we had a lot more active players then we do know.
