I realise this thread might be in the wrong forum, but no one of importance read realm forums anyway so why bother posting there?
Al'Akir as a realm has serious issues -----------
-The Horde / Alliance Ratio is currently 4 / 1
- Approximately 19000 players with 15000 Horde / 3000 Alliance give or take.
-Queue lengths of up to and beyond 1000 at peak times and half that at less popular times. (occuring since new year began)
-Wintergrasp as a result is always unbalanced with horde winning 95% of time (feel sorry for the alliance as 20 stacks of tenacity really does nothing for them except for allowing to 2 shot a few unlucky horde outside the main zerg)
My suggestions are :
Open free faction change from Horde to Alliance only.
Lock all Character creation. (exception - if you have a character over level 55)
Stop all payed character transfers. (Especially to Horde side)
Once all the above have been done, you can then open free migration to decent realms.
No one wants to migrate to a low population server dominated by a certain national community. For example a free migration was recently open from Al'Akir to Hakkar, I made a low level alt there and checked out the cities on both sides only to find the trade channel was mostly in Italian/greek. I have no problem with other nationalities I just have no desire to play on a server where it pays to speak a certain language. English may not be enforced but it helps in a game as large as WoW because its widely spoken as a second language across Europe.
Anyway I imagine Al'Akir isnt the only server suffering from such problems but i do think we as a high population realm demand some attention.
