Oh, hell!I see drama incoming a la "Them carebears had it too easy! They don't deserve it! We are the pros, the Alpha and Omega!"

I'm sure you will see that from many players on PvP servers who have consistently believed they are better players simply because they had a greater chance to be griefed while leveling.Assuming they truly are better PvPers, then they should have no trouble crushing the new max level "carebears" in their midst.

Mock it all you want, but it's 100% true that PvE servers are far easier to level on. People will level up on a low-pop PvE, then transfer at 70 to the PvP server they really want to play on.This game has jumped the shark.

Of course. The people against this never really had a good reason - it was always a variation on "we had to walk uphill both ways in my day..."The old rule ignored several issues: 1) the player who levelled on a pvp server, transferred to a PvE to play with friends, friends quit. That person DID level PvP, so the primary objection doesn't hold. 2) People who could level on a new/low pop PvP server with minimal ganking and then transfer to a more populated PvP server. 3) Guild recruitment is much harder when guilds on PvE servers can't get raiders on a PvP server to move over because of reason 2... Player might want to move, guild might love to have them but the player can't take the chance and get stranded. Now they can. 4) The converse of #3 - My 70s can now potentially transfer to PvP realms in my timezone or with better raid times which gives me more options.
