Yea, I wish blizzard would set parameters, Like, If u want to roll here, u have to roll an alli and we show x y z are the rarest classes.that would have remedied this issue a long time ago and shouldn't be so hard??

I think this would be an excellent way to solve the problem.

I don't think that is a good idea. People feel hemmed in by their guilds by being forced to roll a certain class, but they do it because they want to play with their friends/guild and the good outweighs the bad. Imagine that you're paying a company to play in their world (which we do) but now you don't even have the options that the game provides by pigeonholing you before you even hit create character. That's not gonna fill the empty spots in your roster. It's just going to annoy your potential playerbase. Besides, even if someone did follow that rule and only rolled what the server demanded, what about alts? Do you need special permission? Would you actually pay to put up with that shit? Bad idea.

Superstone,I don't think it would go down like that. By making server makeup more accessable it would give you a better idea of what you are getting into. Server X has Alliance to Horde ratio of 1:1.8. Mage = 15%, Warriors = 21%, Druids = 9%, etc... That doesn't stick anyone in a particular class or faction. Just gives you an idea of what is in store. I, for one, would like to have known that the Horde outnumber Alliance almost 3 to 1 on my server before I made my first toon. I expect the Horde have a much different gaming experience than Alliance.

Yea, I think this would server less as a shutout mechanism, Superstone, than a filter - the Quel'Thalas server that most of these transfers are automatically going to right now has something like a 2.5 to 1 Alliance to Horde ratio. What would it hurt to tell someone that if they want to roll a new toon there, it has to be Horde? Or on a server with few healer classes, that one of the healing classes needs to be rolled? It's not like people don't have 25-30 low to medium population server locations right now - I'm only talking about higher population servers or servers with big balance issues.
