We're in the process of implementing alternate solutions to help assist the lower population realms. The problem here is that Agamaggan is not really what would be considered a "low population" realm, it's not even in the bottom 25 realms. While it's not at capacity (it's at around a 55% nightly pop) there are quite a few realms below it that we would need to focus our attention on first, such as Coilfang (around a 30% nightly pop) and 10 or so other realms like it.

Just to compare there are technically around 200 realms that aren't actually hitting capacity (no queues at any time for a month+) out of about 220 total US realms. While we would like all realms to be near capacity, there is a middle ground that still allows an extremely functional and fun play experience. A lot of the realms live in this "middle area" of capacity, and they have extremely lively economies and interactions. Before the population cap increase with Burning Crusade they might even be considered "high population".

In any case, when realms fall below that middle ground, which Agamaggan has not, then we need to start taking some action.

Our focus is going to be on those realms that are falling below a capacity we believe is acceptable to the players, and our intent for the ability to play the game with any amount of comfort. After that we would then continue to move up and focus on other realms.

Q u o t e:
Sister of Elune needs help too... =(



It has a higher nightly population than Agamaggan. It wouldn't be an immediate focus.

I can't pull out "active" 70's with any amount of certaintly, but Agamaggan has one of the most balanced overall factions. It's close to a 1.1:1

Those sites just aren't accurate, and that's the bottom line. While they can help provide a good idea about something, they just can't be anywhere near accurate due to how they collect data.

One thing I noticed in Agamaggan, that despite its very low reporting... Drysc said it was a 1.1:1 ratio... which is exactly what the stats here show. Its just the activity that is inaccurate. Or is it? Razz

I'm trying! But Donicola just fell victim to a disbanding guild and now he's all lonely and I haven't felt like logging on there much. I haven't got much of a feel for what the A/H ratio is really like, except that I'm seeing much less Alliance ganking than I would have expected in the Barrens and Stonetalon. It's my first and only character on a PvP server, though, so I can't say for sure.

From the reporting figures, it looks like I may be the only person reporting from Agammaggan. Anyone want to join me? Smile

Well, gee Drysc, why don't you talk to Blizzard about releasing some actual numbers?

Yeah, I spent the past few weeks watching the baseball playoffs instead of playing >_> I've been a huge Boston fan ever since I was a kid though (lived in Rhode Island from ages 2 - 10) so it was totally worth it. I guess I could have run census, but I didn't want to have to keep changing rooms :p
