They open up transfers like that, and they'll be making more money. It'll happen soon enough.

This is never going to happen. I don't know why people can't accept that this was a special case scenario where a server had a 15-to-1 faction imbalance that free transfers hadn't fixed. To solve the problem, Blizzard has allowed transfers from select PvP servers for a limited time out of necessity.Leveling on a PvP server, despite what the author of the post says, IS more difficult and takes longer. If people could powerlevel on a PvE server with no hindrance from the opposing faction, they'd do that all the way to 70 then transfer to a PvP server. PvP servers would become empty sub-70.Again, NEVER GONNA HAPPEN.

I've always wondered, Preston, does being loud *really* make you more right?

Well, Chris, when you hear the same ridiculous arguments for four years from PvErs who want to transfer to my server without having gone through what I went through leveling up my characters, you tend to realize that volume is necessary to carry your message through thick skulls.

The issue, imo, is not getting ganked while leveling from 1-70. Rather, the issue is that a large chunk of the WoW population is working on end-game by raiding, farming, grinding, etc.Say for example that you are on a PvE server and you want to craft your master tailor set, but you have to farm up tons of primal water. The only risk you have is from computer controlled elementals and possibly competition stealing your kills. On a PvP server, you have to put up with both of those issues- as well as getting ganked and making your grind take even longer.Personally, I don't care if they open up transfers. The game really isn't all that different on either realm type. I'm on a PvP server and most people from the opposite faction mind their own business since it's a waste of time to attack each other.
