The basics
Realm name: Blade's Edge
Language: English
Realm type: Normal (PvE)
Battlegroup: Ruin
Migration: No
Realm forum: http://forums.wow-europe.com/board.html?forumId=5369079

In more words ;-)
Today we're opening a new English Normal/PvE realm, named Blade's Edge, in the Ruin Battlegroup. This is a fresh realm, thus no migration will be allowed to the realm during the first months, and the Ahn'Qiraj gates are closed.

The realm will open this afternoon / evening, after 17:00 Paris time (CEST). Update: the realm went live with the others after the maintenance. Enjoy the earlier start. :-)

Please note that the starting areas may be quite flooded in the beginning, and the population cap is intentionally set a bit lower than normal to not have them even more flooded. The cap will be raised over the coming days as the population spreads out more.

Q u o t e:
I dont get it, why ? so many low pop realms, and make a new one ?

There are no low-population English PvE realms. Trust me. I have the numbers in front of me right now. ;-)

Thundgot btw you might want to edit your posts topic ;) it's 09/07 today...

Done. :-p

Q u o t e:
I want that list, any chance of sharing? :<


Q u o t e:
This is hardly the solution i was after, HUGE dissapointment imo. but i suppose thank you to the few that have tried for us.

Please note that - as posted in the Ruin forum two weeks ago - this is not the solution we're pursuing for Ruin. Adding new realms is an additional opportunity that opened up due to not going for other options to that solution.

Edit: two weeks ago, not last week

Q u o t e:
Is there any REAL hard changes going to occur in Ruin.

There's a thread dedicated to this topic, with blue responses, in the Ruin forum.

Q u o t e:
Thundgot, keep in mind that the entire server population does not portray the number of people actually actively playing.

We only look at players logged in.

Q u o t e:
Q u o t e:
The question is, why dont they merge Ruin with one of the other small battlegroups...
Its a question we've been asking for at least a year......

Still as yet, no answer from Thundgot.

This was responded to back when the question was first asked, pointing out that there were other factors involved for European Battlegroups.

Q u o t e:
Hes hardly ever in the Ruin forums

We post way more there than in any other Battlegroup or Realm forum. ;-)

In any case, we prefer posting when we feel there's at least some kind of update to give. Posting just for the sake of posting is hardly what players in Ruin are looking for, but actual new information - which will be posted when available.

Edit: added in the quote of a quote for clearer reference
