    I hand it to Blizzard... it is a nice attempt at making their once full game look alive to all servers. Instead of merging servers because of population drops they put this system in. For the world pvp, if they ever wanted to make it balanced they would have put level balancing into each zone like in GW2 and a few other mmos so that players no matter what zone were on equal levels to fight for each zone.

     

    Does this make me all of a sudden want to go back to a boring quest grind game with out  dated graphics and combat system? Absolutely NO.

    There is one solution for all the people who are unhappy with these changes.

    Why do you people roll on a PLAYER vs PLAYER server when you don't want to kill Horde? Blizzard should just offer a free transfer from PvP servers > PvE servers so that all the PvErs can go to their PvE servers and pick daisies and hug teddy bears and play together, GW2 style.

    PVE servers >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> this way. Kthnxbye? 

    Mission in life: Vanquish all MMORPG.com trolls - especially TESO, WOW and GW2 trolls.

    This is a great solution to the problem of a top heavy game. Good job Blizzard.

    More like in fact bottom empty due to bad gamedesign. Dont try to spin the fact dozen of WoWs EU and US server are DEAD, the complete opposite of "full of live" ANYWHERE not just botom end but top end either. 20 "top end" player is not "full of live". The majority of "top end" population even on so called "high" populated server are completely untouched by the CRZ as they linger arround  inside the instanced maps hosted on seperate cluster or in cityhubs.

    They could have just  merged 100 of their lowest populated WoW server into 3-4 high populated ones with exactly the same results minus gambreaking issues.

    CRZ is a bandaid for growing sideeffects of bad/lazy gamedesign and coverup for the increasing number of low populated WoW server. And it came with horrible quality and lack of thought. Everything else is just PR spin.

    You should tell that to the player of PvE-RP /PvE server who where forcefuly merged with multiple other PvP server player  on a PvP server zone and get flagged on these PvP server against their will (because Blizzard was just stupid and thougtless with the CRZ or just rushed it to get the unfinished and broken system into the game with MOP before the start of Q4 2012 )

    They will thank your advice.

    It is great news. OWPvP in old WoW was my top MMO experience.

    Looking forward to seeing this once again. They seem to know what they are doing.

    If anyone from Blizzard actually reads this forum, I just want to say thank you for an awesome feature that makes the world feel alive again. Leveling an alt was not this much fun for years and I would level a lot faster if I didn't run into random PVP every day, that turns into Hunger Games on a regular basis.

     

    Good job Blizzard, this is some serious tech magics and I applaud your efford, keep up the good work.

    Was going to say "If you don't like open world PvP then don't roll on a PvP server" but this pretty much crushed that. Blizzard messed up on this one.

Are they already implemented on live servers or do we have to wait for MoP? What happens if everyone is on a flying mount and refusing to come down to fight? Please tell me more OP and others who play WoW (I havent played since 2010)

    I heard they implemented a hook (or something like that) which basically lets you dismount people off their flying mounts. Which should solve the problem where player x runs away and mounts their flying mounts (I am looking at you druids!).

    http://us.battle.net/wow/en/item/86584 - Found it!

     

    WoW had been needing that ever since they added flying mounts, people say battlegrounds killed World PvP I think it was flying mounts.  I still say there should be a cool down on flying mounts limited to 30minuts of flight per day.

    I am curious now, is this spike in World PvP just a blip or will it sustain? why are blizzard saying that patch 5.1 is the PvP patch that will bring back the war? Find out soon I guess... exciting times ahead.

    BG's and arenas killed owpvp for sure simply because you get so much more from them.  They need to make rewards thatare just as good as the BG and arena rewards in the ow and it would all be fixed.

    Yes WoW did it again...

     

    They lured back all of the easilly entertainable people for a short time... They changed their clasess yet again, their skills yet again, their Gear yet again and fed the easilly duped individuals yet again on the same thing they sold them in the last update. 

    Go Grind again for what you already had, go dungeon hunting and raiding for what you already did... Get bored of it all over again... and then they will make a new expansion and you will do it again.   The funny part is you won't even know your being duped... again... because you fail to realize the RATIO play that they give you just means your still the same as you were 5 years ago just the numbers add another 0 or two.  

    When they create a Meaning and Purpose to the game maybe just maybe they might have made a game worthy of playing.

    ....or you could look at it another way and say that they gave people exactly what they have been asking for, for a while now and that is populated low level areas on some of the quieter servers, especially PvP & RP servers.

    I have seen complaints about getting ganked on PvP servers, but to be if you are on a PvP server you should be pretty much expecting that but the only other complaint i have heard was from one of my sons who didn't like that there were too many peopel in one of his favourite skinning areas :)

    It must be Thursday, i never could get the hang of Thursdays.

       What makes me different?  My name is not Psycho, I am not a kid, kids and teenagers have infiltrated WOW so much as to make it unplayable.  You asked so there you go, just my opinion.

    There seems to be a lot of misinformation for Cross-Realm Zones on these forums. Here is a CRZ 101 from Blizzard themselves, hopefully shining light on those who wish to know http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/6679517893?page=1#1.

    I would like to point out that CRZ groups realms up based on realm type. So if you're on a PvE realm, you will not be forced to PvP because it simply won't match you up with PvP realms. The same goes for RP realms, you're matched up with other RP realms only.

    As for what use CRZ brings. It doesn't matter how many people you have on a server in WoW, sooner or later the majority of players will reach end game and they'll leave the lower level zones barren. This goes for server-merging as well. Say you were to merge every single low/medium pop realm, to the point where only high pop realms remained. It still wouldn't solve the problem of most reaching max and leaving the rest deserted. CRZ solves atleast that issue.

    This feature, while not fixing the plague of issues low pop realms have, I feel like its a good first step.

    When I played WoW I never needed "rewards" for killing Alliance scum.

    It was a reward unto itself!

    I keep seeing that only low level zones will become CRZs. Does that mean wotlk/cata zones won't become CRZs?

    I love it.  As an altoholic, I was almsot finally rid of my addiction, but blizzard has to go and do this, now I'm all addicted again lol.  They're going to be tuning it some.  They're going to make ti so you are only in your time zone of servers, among a few other things.

    CRZ don't include cities. CRZ will not include the new Pandaria zones from level 85-90. CRZ will not include the new Panda starting zone, however multiple "copies" of the zone will be made if your own server has too many people in that zone on launch.

    The negative comments from these CRZ come from players who have been invited from say their PVE realm by a real id friend who is from a PVP realm. This results in a person from the PVE realm expecting to see the rules of PVE realms in these zones, but instead gets to PVP rules since they are in their real id pvp friend's realm, not their own PVE realm. Blizzard said that they can't do anything about that so just be aware of what your real id friend's realms are compared to your own.

    On that note, PVP realms are only matched with PVP realms CRZ. Same for PVE matched to PVE, RP matched to RP & RPPVP matched to RPPVP.

    If players are encountering PVP in these zones, then things are as they should be. You rolled on a PVP realm at the character screen by your own choice and so you knew what you had signed up for. Yes, low level people are & will continue to be ganked by high level players who are going out into the world in search of people to kill now that the world pretty much has people in every zone. Again, if you don't want to face this, then re-roll on a pve server. If you do manage to scrape your way to the level cap , then one day you will be the one that goes out into the world to gank the lowbie zones. In away, these gankers are making you a sort of Batman, so just enjoy it.

    CRZ are great, the problems or more competition for resource nodes/rare spawns and quest mobs is being monitored by blizz and increased to meet the demands. So no problem there. Again, you'll only be ganked in pvp if you had signed up for a PVP server, so again no problem there as it was your choice.

    Where GW2 fails , were SWTOR fails Blizz pulls something out of their magic hat.

    I walked out of Stormwind and guess what? 2, 3 6 players? Nope I stopped counting at 50+ players , so then 

    I flew to STV , waste land? 1 or 2 players like Tatooine on SWTOR? nope , ran into 40+ players within 5 minutes of exploring STV.

    CRZ is the single best decision Blizzrd has made and its another sword through the heart of the competition.

    Learn from this game developers, perfect magic. The world of Azroth is alive again and Im really happy.

     

    Blizzard that desperate to gain new players that they start posting on MMO forums now?
