Over the next year or so. How long will it take Blizzard to admit that there are too many NA realms? How long until players on those almost completely dead low pop realm get the choice for a free transfer to say a medium pop realm. Eventually resulting in the closure of those realms altogether. Similar to how they allow free transfers off of overcrowded realms. Do you view that as Blizzard admitting defeat or do you think it would be good for the game? I mean surely Blizzard can't keep dead realms up forever. Seems like a waste to me. A lot of "medium" realms are dead enough. I pity the people who wasted their time playing on now dead "low" population realms.

inb4 it's only a temporary fix. What is the long term solution?

I don't think (and they don't think, incidentally) that CRZ was ever meant to alleviate the problem of dead realms. It was meant to make individual zones feel more populated on all servers.

You should link sources to make that statement.

If CRZ goes well it's my opinion they can implement it permanently for low pop servers however they have issues to work out such as if someone has the same name on merging realms. But this can be accomplished by making a new realm that several low pop servers join and keep their original realm after their name like now.

Good. You didn't skip over this line of text. This part of the post is actually quite significant and very, very important.

You don't need need a dozen articles to prove something that is common sense. WoW went from 12 million to 9 million subscribers in a short time. Not even the expansion could propel it back to its former numbers. It's not unrealistic to say that a few million more people are gone once the novelty of Pandaria wears off.

Keep pulling baseless predictions out of your ass, all you're doing is making yourself look dumber and dumber.

I don't need a dozen articles just one from a reputable organization that has facts and statistics that WoW is expected to (not already has) lose a substantial amount of subscribers. Your idea of substantial seems to be in the 3 million number. Thanks ahead a time for the link.
