Splitting the realms might be a better/quicker option than the realm transfer option. If you think about it, the first round of transfers were probably most of the loners, people who didn't have ties to the realm, and those who had a reason to want to leave (bad feelings with other players there, etc). Now you're down to those people who have a reason for staying where they are - most likely the people they enjoy playing with. Splitting the realm would give Blizzard a chance to let entire guilds to decide which realm they want to go to, preserving their guild history, structure, etc.Lets face it, for a majority of players, the people in their guild are the reason they would want to stay on their current server. After that comes your friends list, and then your friends who aren't on your friends list. It wouldn't be too difficult for Blizzard to announce that the realm is splitting, have an in-game option for the guild leaders to select which realm the guild is moving to, and then wait a week or two. Then split the realms and when people log in they can be presented with the two realms with notes: you're guild moved to realm A. 6 of your friends moved to realm A, 3 have moved to realm B, and 5 are undecided. Which realm would you like to move to?After that, just leave the transfers between those two realms open for a month or so to let people get adjusted and happy, and you're set. It's better than waiting 30+ minutes in a queue every time you want to play.
