The main things I believe Blizzard should do to bring back a sense of community:- First, in order to avoid worsening faction imbalance, grant some great, but dynamic, bonuses for playing in the smaller faction. Make it so that anyone who is in doubt will flock to the smaller faction for the bonus.- The real thing: make realm transfers free and unlimited - and, if Blizzard can manage the technical aspects, also fast or even instant, like a number of games already do. If possible, also make guilds a cross-realm affair. Enabling players to choose any realm they want, at any time, would surely kill the smaller, struggling realms - but, on the other hand, would enable any player not satisfied with his current realm to find one that better fits his tastes, and result in tighter knit communities because being in a realm would be a conscious, current choice, not a random chance back when the player created the character. After all, the Internet is chock full of communities, and most of them don't have anything in place to prevent players from moving around the way WoW realms do.As a bonus, making transfers free, unlimited, and instant, could change random strangers met in a LFD or LFR into potential friends or guildmates. LFD and LFR can go back to being prime recruiting grounds for guilds, like they were before they were expanded beyond the BattleGroup's borders.
