The PVP realms had ceased to function as they were originally designed -- they used to be the only way to PVP and now people can bg or arena anywhere. I'm not surprised this has happened and I'm glad for it.I doubt they'll ever have horde and alliance working together (alas, my poor dusty alliance alts). Such things mess with the game itself rather than a feature that has become outdated. (Yes, I think PVP realms are outdated. They only serve high-levels who want to be jerks. People who want a fair fight go to battlegrounds and arenas.)

I agree with most of what you bring up. The game is not the same as it was even a year ago. The content is more advanced at the upper end, and the leveling process sped up across all servers. The difference in the realms was slight to begin with... now it's just a moot point. You can level as fast and easy on one server as another.Now, as to PvP realms only being for high-level jerks... I disagree. I've been a jerk since level one on every character I've made... which is why they are all flagged at level one. Yes, should you venture into the Undercity, you could even gank my banker. That's just how I roll. Saying all PvP players are jerks is akin to me saying all PvE players are carebears. It's a very gross generalization. Some of us just like the World of Warcraft to be just that... an entire world where the craft of war is paramount. All is fair in Love and Warcraft.

This is true. Not all PVPers are jerks (I'm on a PVP server with my main). But I think it's safe to say that the high-levels who get their kicks camping low-levels are. :)
