    Which had nothing to do with Fires of Heaven wanting it. :rolleyes:

    Anyway, who knows, there seem to have been a lot of paid xfers into Hyjal in recent weeks. Perhaps they think Hyjal is getting overpopulated.

    The message on the log in screen says we are in the list of overpopulated realms, and that if population is not reduced to "acceptable levels" by free transfers we may get a forced split.

    Here's the FAQ on realm splits:

    Probably not going to happen. Sounds like a last resort move, and I haven't noticed queues or excessive population lag on Hyjal.

    So they split us after letting people xfer in? That would be homo.

    Yes, I would announce a server in that event.

    According to the FAQ, if you don't choose a server your characters go to the server your Guild Master picks. So make sure all your alts and banks are in MSC and then just let Jaden choose.

    LOL yes it would, but you have to ensure the server choice is made for all your toons, otherwise it is possible characters from the same account would be split. Could be an issue if, for example, one of your banks had all of your profession mats in it and it got separated from the character with that profession.

    You could just manually make the choice for all your alts too.

    would suck if they split the server, and toons got left behind, plus all of your friends that you play with (who aren't in the guild-gasp!) get left out... Wonder if you can then petition for a free move?

    That is always the problem. It will be the initial release all over again, with everyone trying to agree on a server through multiple independent democracies. It is not possible to achieve a result that does not split up friends. If that happens then I will be sad because I am so socially connected to Hyjal.

    Yeah, I have just started to play, and already have a few like-lvl'd friends that I play with, and talked a couple into starting toons on Hyjal to boot..

    No but you can pay $25... :deal:

    I'd be shocked if it actually came to a forced server split.
