I suppose Blizzard didn't want the Alliance quitting the game entirely since it would mean the loss of subs and they opened transfer for this server and it was open for sometime. They announced 2 days ago that all the transfers were going to shut down tonight. A huge exodus happened and I created a level 1 Alliance on the server and there was no one but me in Stormwind. In Ironforge there were Horde killing the guards and simply having free rein as there were 4 level one's and three 50+ and one level 60 druid.
In one stroke the server was killed. Whatever world PvP is completely dead, well there was none to speak of before either because of the population imbalance but this action decimated the server. How could they do this without any thought to the hours people invested in their characters to find that since they did not log on the last 3 days, they were left out of the transfer and are now stuck on a side that is completely dead, that even your major cities will have Horde in them.
PvP people say is suppose to be great but when you overwhelm one side it kills it completely in the end.
