The response to, "How do you keep 'em down on the farm after they've seen Paris?" is not "Erect a giant, impassable wall between the farm and Paris," it's, "Make the farm more attractive."The cross-server wall that once existed has been lifted; now, if there's a migration problem, Blizzard and/or the players on the less desirable realms need to address what's causing it or learn to live with the new population dynamics.

More lag to the hi-pops. New hardware to low-pop servers only. :-)

This comment is perfect. Think about the way Blizz is implementing things. They launched the Finder first because players love shiny new stuff. People are able to gear up and low pop realms don't feel left out (more motivation for toons to xfer during free xfers from high pops). However, there are two things that Blizz still had up its sleeve to address the lack of "community" issue:1. The weekly raid quest: it is constantly pugged so you can keep up on your realms gossip there.2. The pending launch of the guild leveling system. This has great potential to create more motivation for tight knit guilds and servers than anything prior to 3.3. We shall see if it works, but it is a huge wildcard for Blizz.

I moved to the city for the opportunity. I moved back to the farm because the city was filled with greedy, selfish arseholes. I now see this parallel in WoW. I think eventually it will make guilds that much more valuable.
