Been there. Got the Tshirt.
I was listening to Trade chat last night, and a debate ensured about the right of the transfer trash to make comments about the realm. Lots of GTFO the server you “transfer trash” occurred – and of course then came the ” I’ve been on the server since…. ”
I became a Alliance on Dath because my priest was just so much easier to level – people wanted me! ( untill I wanted to play Shadow) – and Dath was my home for a long time – I had talked about leaving – but it was all I really knew so I stayed. Enough people I knew left the server and I followed them to a ‘better progressed’ server – the land of GDKP milk and Honey, and where I am so much more of a little fish in a sea of raid geared up & skilled up people.
I am transfer trash.
When arriving on a new server – full pimped out in purps I would not recommend
1) Posting in trade ” Elem Shammy – New transfer LF High end raiding guild. Pst.
This will result in a trade wide attack of the difference between the founding members of the server, and the bad’s or people who transfer for the glory of being on an awesome(r) server.
2) Posting in realm forums LF for Raiding Guild – may result in a replys such as this “stay on your crappy server. we are full and don’t want your badnes.. you getting the hint yet?”
I did neither – But yes the server is full. I had a queue of 300 + on the weekend at one point. I’m pretty sure horde side is locked to transfers at the moment. I like it. I think the pool of gearing / of raiders / of hardcores are certainly higher than what I am used to – and I do not have it me to be a 6 day a week raider.
The realm suits and sates my needs and desires for what I want out of Wow at the moment.
Still miss organised raiding though.
So yes I am transfer trash – but really most of the realm is – doesn’t make the people less skilled / geared . Bads are less likely to leave servers if born there, so I would like to think that it was the transfer trash that made it a more desired realm.
I so should make my bank alt guild that name…
