They really need to start consolidating these low population servers. It's ridiculous to have dozens of low pop servers when they could be combined into one with a healthy population and economy. The biggest problem would probably be all the people with identical names. Obviously someone would have to be forced to change their name, but there's no way to do that fairly I guess. How about just giving us free transfers and let us get off these dead realms without paying a fortune to move all our characters. Tell everyone the realm is being closed down and give us all a free destination. They do this for high population servers now and then but those of us stuck in a ghost town have to pay. No fair.

I can't help but agree. For those of us on a severely underpopulated server (or even a lopsided one), there are all sorts of disadvantages. Now, I'd never advocate putting us all on huge realms with queues and everything, but a little consolidation to bring us up to medium status and perhaps bring a bit of stability to the economies and a bit more activity to /2 would be nice.

I don't think it will be neccessary to consolidate low population servers because with the advent of LFD and phasing. Blizzard can really take steps to bring its entire population together vice splitting us into segments. The idea to make Battlegroup servers handle instances can be expanded to Raids, Auction Houses, Mail, Guilds, Arena etc... I know that some segmentation will be needed due to language barriers (or do they? - translators), but i think this can really open up doors for everyone.I am Goth from Battlegroup Retaliation and I approve this message.

Or at least offer free full-slate transfers from terminally bugged servers like Thrall to a less-populated server...hopefully one with a higher Alliance presence.

The problem isn't that simple. There are very few low pop servers. What we have too much of is population imbalances where there is a high horde population and low alliance population, thereby making the alliance feel they are on a low pop server.Moreover, server consolidation is taboo in the mmo world as it is indicative of mmo collapse and signals the end of the game.
