Laughing Skull EU had the same problem, LS eu had a great reputation in vanilla for a pvp server. I've been there about 4 years now and the descent from balanced to shockingly low alliance population has been progressive. The start of it really was when the upper raiding guilds struggled to get new members (starting of TBC) so most migrated off, leaving fewer guilds on the server capable of scraping together enough members from the sparce population.When they introduced faction changing this only got worse as not only did the fed up raider have the option to server move, they now had the option to move to the better populated horde side without leaving their realm. I can remember being in ironforge on wednesday afternoon at 6pm and there was only one other player there. Stormwind was deserted and dalaran had a handful of 80's outside the bank flexing on their mounts. The fact that alliance only have 2 guilds 25 man raiding and both of which struggle to find 25 on reset day should say it all really, that being said I've never played on another server so i dont know any different.A low population server guarantee's raiding guilds heart ache, frustration and relentless disapointment.On the plus side though, recently blizzard flagged laughing skull as a "recommended" server and once again stormwind and ironforge are newb central, its kind of refreshing to be mugged by lowbies again... "dud plz can i have gld for trains?" "i dance for golds!" etcNot so beneficial now but come cataclysm we may be able to recruit decent players again.
