Server crashes plague Ruin battlegroup and others

It seems to be an unfortunate reality of WoW, if not MMORPGs in general: When a new patch goes live, more often than not, it's going to be a bit rocky on the servers for a while. Patch 2.4.2 is no exception, Many servers are having trouble staying up, including most of the Ruin Battlegroup, which according to a few our tipsters has been having more than its share of trouble lately. Blue Poster Vrakthis has assured posters on the Customer Service Forum that the Realm issues are being looked into, but so far, there does not seem to be a solid reason for the downtime other than, hey, it's patch day!

EDIT: It has now been confirmed that the downtimes were intentional for the purpose of emergency maintenance. The downtime should be minimal.

As of the time of this writing, the following servers are down:

More transfers for North America

Transfers from some impacted North American servers to four brand-new realms began at noon PST today, and will run "until 11PM, Friday, January 19 or until such a time that the destination realms have received adequate transfers to them." From Eyonix:
  • In the event that a realm meets our transfer goals before the scheduled end date the transfers to that realm will be disabled. We highly recommend that if you are planning to transfer that you do so at your earliest convenience.

  • You can begin a free character move here:

  • Destination: - Arathor, PvE - Pacific


  • Destination: - Trollbane, PvE - Eastern


  • Destination: - Madoran, PvE - Central

    Khaz Modan

  • Destination: - Farstriders, RP - Central

    Earthen Ring
    Kirin Tor
    Cenarion Circle
    Blackwater Raiders

I do have a character on Doomhammer, so I might transfer just for the hell of it. New servers are fun.

However, one sour note for the transfer bonanza: Cloudbeard of the guild Tide writes that a lot of people, including most of his guild, are stuck in the free transfer queue, and Blizz hasn't said much beyond that they're "working on a resolution." So maybe look out; but on the other hand, Eyonix urges you to transfer ASAP.

What have your transfer experiences been like?
