Please note: FCMs are opened based on realm population tracking and analysis and not by request. If you're looking for a specific Character Move (from realm A to realm B), you are in most cases better off using Paid Character Transfer, or you could end up waiting for a very long time.

Just a general response to a few queries: we will be looking at FCMs for our PVP realms again in the future.

Q u o t e:
not in the "future" we "need" them now not later tbh ...!
Well unfortunately that cannot be. Currently a lot of people are taking healthy breaks away from playing WoW whilst they enjoy the warmer weather. Because of this, effective FCM can be difficult to achieve. We will revisit FCM for PVP realms in the future though, but we have no ETA to announce.

Q u o t e:
Since 2 years, there NEVER was a free migration from Kul Tiras server. Even if it have been marked as "FULL" Why? Please, consider it... personally I know much people who would like to leave KT... :)
We rarely have PVE realm FCM at all actually -- since generally our English PVE realms have healthy and balanced populations. The only reason why we have PVE FCM now is to help increase the population of a couple of realms that were recently converted from PVP to PVE (though it has to be said they are doing pretty well increasing population without this assistance). When we do have PVE FCM, we usually focus on source realms that are either queued or very high in population. This has not been the case for Kul Tiras for a long long while.

Q u o t e:
Meh, this is probably going to sound a bit sassier than I'd like but; Given how the FCMs are mostly about the "usual suspects" on both the destionation and the source ends, FCMs can't be all that effective even on a good day.
This is conjecture from a limited perspective.
