phasing/sharding = death of rp/wpvp - World of Warcraft Forums
So after a few weeks of trying to post tickets, poking around on the forums to see if people are going through this, as well as continously tweeted at @BlizzardCS as well as @WarcraftDevs- I decided to post on the forums myself to see if we can get a response or just what their plans are on this situation. But this phasing of entire servers, is getting out of hand, and has taken a heavy, HEAVY toll on both world PVP, RP-PVP and RP, in both cities and out in the world. I cannot speak for others, if this helps them, especially with lag I'm glad! the devs are always working on ways to better the game. but on a server such as Emerald Dream, where PVP and RP is king, the phasing makes it not even worth it. Going to community events that have a massive turn out, that requires more then one raid, people are banished to the nether, even in the same raid group it isn't completely safe. Going out into the world looking for some good ole fashion Wpvp (not even in an invasion zone) becomes a shoot in the dark, because the other fashion's defense group isn't even in the same universe. It doesn't even have to be major things, as WrA and other RP realms are feeling as well: Casual, walk up, and world rp has just been slashed. The cities are ghost towns, and trying to rp in the world just as a guild or a community casually, requires a raid just to see people on our own server It's just not a WORLD anymore, our servers aren't even whole. Perhaps I missed something, or this is just a temporary thing, if so we hunker down and we wait for things to return to normal, but from little I've seen of this subject, it's working "as Intended." If you're from RP/PVP/RP-PVP servers and have any examples please post them so blizzard can see what's going on! the RP and to extent Wpvp community may be a minority to this game, but we're still part of it. The more they know, the more they can help us as a community :) Thanks!, Tare
