Although I would have loved to witness the event during vanilla, I think it's good they took it out.I played an alt on the last EU realm to have a gate opening (or I think it was the last). The AQ thingy destroyed the realm community before it even existed. From day one they had a huge debate involving more than a little rudeness; one faction wanted to push the event forwards and open the gates before transfer to the realm was available. The other faction asked everybody to wait until transfer was open. Add the people from various countries coming to the (German) realm forums and showering them with google-translated pleas to wait for them, and you can imagine how unwelcoming the atmosphere became. In the end they managed to open the gates before transfer to the realm was possible, but it happened in the middle of the night and many people who would have liked to see the even weren't able to.Another story, of course, is that of Die Aldor. The Aldor is a German RP realm opened during TBC. They have a great RP community and they did a hell lot of planning for their event. At that time the possibility of transfering to a realm to be able to hit the gong after completing the quest on your home realm wasn't commonly known about. Because they wanted to find a perfect date and finish all preparations, Die Aldor delayed the opening although they had their scepter(s) and already had turned in all the mats. Then transfer was opened, a random guy from a French server transfered over and hit the gong without notifying anyone. A huge outcry went through the RP community.
