Due to population differences between some of the highest and lowest populated PvP realms, the following Free Character Migration will be available April 9th to 15th:

From: Frostmane, Grim Batol, Magtheridon, Twilight's Hammer
To: Bladefist, Dragonmaw, Spinebreaker

From: Molten Core
To: Stonemaul

Please note that the migration may be closed at any time should a destination realm's population rise too high.

Q u o t e:
One thing that would be really nice is that you try to have your homepage working during this period. Couldnt transfer my char betwenn 2d of April and 8th due to homepage problems. Kinda gg.

We're aware of the page being troublesome during the last day of the previous migration. We gave an update about that here: http://forums.wow-europe.com/thread.html?topicId=3623142327&pageNo=1&sid=1#3

Q u o t e:
and maybe sometimes merge two empty servers into one would be a good idea?

As we've responded before, merging even the lowest populated English realms would create a merged realm with long queues (1000+). Splitting one and merging it into two others would be a logistical nightmare (splitting guilds, inactive players being force-moved, etc). This is simply not something we consider a good idea at this point.

Q u o t e:
i am pretty sure that not a single person from twilight's hammer would ever even THINK about going back there

TH isn't the only realm with migration open to Spinebreaker, and Spinebreaker is not the only possible destination for Spinebreaker players. ;-)

Q u o t e:
Has there ever been any pvp>pve transfers?

There has been in the past, but not lately. Right now we wouldn't run migration to any of the PvE realms, but this may change in the future.
