Blizzard is just a joke when it come to population balance. They never have given an incentive to make realms balanced, they simple believe that people would do so natuarally. Which is funny why would people do so? I play on two realms one in which the population is roughly even. It fun, it fair and usually unpredictable, but challenging. My other realm the popluations like 2 to 1 which a joke if you think about. I play within the minority and it sucks most of the time. Sometime we do well against the odds, which is very statisfying, but rare. Why does blizzard allow it to go on. Likely because they are ignorant of the situation. The probably all play on realm inwhich they are either majoriy or a minority by small percentate. Which make them clueless. Also I think all the authors on this site are in the same situation. Which is a shame that non of them are true reporters and willing to place themselve in unconfortable position to get the truth about a situation.

And how exactly do you plan on enforcing this? Just telling people they can't play alliance? That's basically what it's going to come down to because nearly ALL PvE realms are alliance heavy. It is simply impossible to balance it without forcing people to play horde. PvP realms are often the reverse. Besides which just because one side has more people doesn't mean they participate in PvP. For that matter on my last server alliance outnumbered the horde by a fair margin, but they horde always totally destroyed them just because they had much better players.Blizzard doesn't balance it because it's not their job to choose sides, it's yours and they give you that freedom. The most they can do is offer transfers for one faction only - which they already do on some realms.
