Winterhoof is now a preferred server.
My thought? In a word: Boo.
Okay, so I love noobs as much as the next guy. I was one! I have no trouble with new players joining the game, it’s a fun one, and they should join! But what I do have a problem with is us being tagged as preferred and now instead of people randomly picking servers to join when they first start playing, they pick our server. Again no problem…mostly. I have ONE problem.
I now have a queue on my server. Yes. I transferred from a server with a queue back in February to Winterhoof. The population was really low, there was no lag in Dalaran, I didn’t have to fight people for quest mobs. It was great, there was no queue when I wanted to log in, I didn’t have anyone on my ignore list. The player base was mostly experienced people who also took the free transfer. Life was good, really good.
I’m a little peeved at Blizzard for marking us as preferred. We went from low population to max capacity in literally like 2 days. I know it’s just a little queue at the moment and hopefully some will quit, get annoyed with Furenchtoast and leave, or reroll on other servers, but man…if I have to start facing daily queues again, Blizz better up this servers capacity…or else.
Or else…I’ll…complain more? /cry
I liked Winterhoof the way it was.
