Our realm forums are filled with queue posts and no one is responding to any of them
so STOP! pouring people into realms that already have 1-2 hour queues.
Its ruining the game for everyone and forcing people to stop.
And ignoring our outcries simply makes it worse.
We all know your trying to help people escape dead realms but stop ruining
the game for thousands of loyal and longtime subscribers.
We are not directing people into the high population realms—we actually warn players against creating characters there—and your feedback is not being ignored.
With the specific aim of tackling this issue, we set up FCMs for every realm that has a queue. For some time now, we’ve been offering FCMs to realms with a medium population, so no one should fear being moved to a realm with hardly any other players.
Also, when people opt to play on a realm which is clearly marked as “full”, they are warned that this may result in a wait to play. In fact, if there is a queue on the realm at that particular time, players should be unable to migrate characters there or create new ones (unless they have one there already to my knowledge).
Currently, if players with friends or family on high population realms wish to make characters there so they can play together, they are able to do so as long as there’s no queue at that time. CRZ and the associated technology has made it possible to do many things with friends on different realms, so there should be less of a desire to move to these high pop realms, but clearly they still appeal to people. As always, we’re considering and monitoring this with the aim of improving the situation for everyone.
As fare as I know 5.4 should had brought connected realms but by the looks of it they
are not doing it in the EU yet atm its US only I think.
