I’ve been playing WoW a little bit more, even though my classes are stressing me out royally. I recently got one of my friends into playing WoW, and so we’ve been playing on Stormreaver-US as Alliance.
A little backstory because I’m pretty sure I have never mentioned it before:
My server [Archimonde] has been struggling with a low population. Back in the days of Classic, Archimonde was a high population server. It’s very hard to see it at the low population status now. With the Low Population, this means that raiding guilds are struggling to recruit new members, including Blood of Heroes vXv [my Horde guild]. We are currently one of the only remaining 25 man raiding guilds on the server. In short, things have been a bit slow inside the game…if we’re not raiding.
So out of boredom, my fellow guild members created alliance alts on a different High Population server [Stormreaver-US]. We even have a guild, but it’s named “The Dwarven Brotherhood.” Many of my fellow guild members has transferred over some alts [not their mains] over to the Alliance guild.
The issue has been brought up about transferring the Blood of Heroes vXv guild to another server…
I am a little torn between this idea. While I agree with my fellow guildies to just transfer the guild, because things have been slow on the server. Other raiding guilds have transferred for the same reason. I agree with that but not only has BoHvXv been on Archimonde for over 6 years, it has overcome these obstacles in the past before. Archimonde is BoHvXv’s home, and I imagine it always will be. I honestly could never leave Archimonde either. Even if you don’t include the financial cost of transferring 20 characters [that I can't afford], I have too many good memories on that server. In the past, someone posted something untrue about me on the Archimonde forums. Every one of our mutual friends acted awkward around me or didn’t want to talk to me because of the “gossip”. I’ve thought about transferring, but the few friends that I did have didn’t want me to. So I didn’t transfer then [and I'm glad I didn't], I’m not going to transfer now. I’m sure you guys are tired of me explaining how lucky I am to have found a home in Blood of Heroes vXv, so I’m not going into it.
A possible server merge in the future?
Some of my guildies have mentioned the Blizzard has merged Low Population servers together before. Being a possible fate for Archimonde as well, I might not have a choice when it comes to staying on Archimonde. I think I’m okay with that, but I’ll let you know when it actually does happen. I think a server merge would be good for the overall playing experience, but I doubt it will ever happen. When it does, I’ll post about it. OMG! IT HAPPENED! LOL. Until then, I’ll be enjoying my time that I have on Archimonde. In the past month, BoHvXv has downed Deathwing and consider him on farm now. Yay! When I’m not raiding, I’m leveling up a Night Elf druid on Stormreaver that is currently level 25.
