Nov 26th 2010 11:09AM I changed my realm half a year ago, since my server was dying. Very, very few people were serious (not: hardcore!) about raiding, so outside of the one or two top guilds, nothing ever happened. So I wanted to find a new home. I'm always rolling on RP-PVP servers (I think they host the most quirky, fun people), so what I did was:
I checked the (NEW PLAYER / LOW / MEDIUM / FULL) signs in the realm-changer for a week, figuring out the most populated rp-pvp server, and rolled a DK there. Paving the way for my other chars, this DK made his way to 80 in about a week and a half, and the difference was so big that I immediately transferred my main after hitting 80 on that DK.
People were everywhere, literally. Dalaran was so crowded, you sometimes couldn't even read nametags. And no matter where you walked on the face of Azeroth, there were people.
I loved it, and never looked back.

Oct 10th 2010 2:32AM I'd like to get some updates on the Realmpool-Merger that I read about. AFAIK, Cataclysm will put all Realmpools of the same language in one big pool.. will this feature already be in 4.0.1? I read nothing about it, and it's easily the most anticipated feature for me (playing BGs in off hours alot).

Aug 28th 2010 7:20AM It was an alliance (I think human) char, battling together with a druid in Halaa (and having some other random fun). While it was a pvp video (editing to show nice pvp moves in matrix style), it didn't take itself too seriously.. which is a rare and precious thing, considering the general attitude in pvp videos is more like the one in the rap video above.
Aug 27th 2010 6:43PM Not commenting on the rap video thing, but rather posing a question:
I am looking for a video from quite some time ago.. I think it was featured here on moviewatch, but I'm not sure (may have been in the comments). It was kind of a pvp-movie, like "a day in the life of a rogue", but featured quite advanced editing from fightscenes in Halaa / Nagrand open world pvp and a hilarious scene in Zangarmarsh, where the main character barely escapes two other rogues.
If someone could provide me with a pointer, I'd be grateful. Thanks!
Jul 25th 2010 10:34AM @benny.bosmans: your accusatory rant is missing the point. Mor8idhomogenosuicide (IMO correctly) described Bossy's problem not being with PVP but with attitude, and provided reasonable ways to deal with that. He didn't just L2P him, he offered sound advice.
Btw, I agree: faction imbalace is a problem. But not in the cases you mention:
BGs are not strongly affected by faction imbalances, as there is a defined (10/15/40) set of players and nowadays, they do not open when half empty.
Arenas are even more disconnected from faction imbalances, as you battle members of your own faction in exactly the same way.
The only place where faction imbalace strikes is at Wintergrasp, and we get tenacy for that.

Jul 25th 2010 10:10AM That truly is a fantastic idea to revitalize world PvP.. making the contested areas of now into warzones for designated periods of time. On a pve server, you still could go about your business when not attacking the (non-hostile) NPCs. This would immensely push world pvp.
Blizzard, are you reading?

I mean, we are seriously getting a second baseline horror effect, and it's AE?
Please let this one make it to live..
