Why are people leaving the server?

#1 » Post by winchester1358 » 03 Dec 2016 10:43

Title says it all mostly, I just see less and less people on the server just as I'm about to reach 80.
In the mornings and late nights there aren't enough people for one simple raid in the entire race.

My friend just joined and I can't find any other servers as good as this one since this one is the only one without major bugs regardless of pvp.
I know pvp has a lot of bugs from questions asked and when seeing by myself.

The server has been at end-game for a while, so naturally, people will grow bored of it. The huge decline over the past 2 weeks is due to one of the larger guilds migrating to another server. We had the same situation earlier this year when another huge guild left, but it kind of stabilised after a while and I think that will happen this time as well.

The reason you don't see many raids or players outside peak time is because guilds have a scheduled raid time, so people tend to log in when their guild's raids start. Find yourself a guild and you should find raids. :-) If you're Alliance, I believe FeW or Divinity is your best option now, and if you're Horde, Raiders of the Storm.

open instant 80 pvp realm also and keep this for 1x for pve
something needs to change to keep and get players, if continue like this, tw will surely die if "soon" merge with pw wont save us

Personally I got bored of WoW, if I ever got motivation to come back I would love to play here again but with so much people I've met moving to a different server I might find the idea of following them more attractive, sadly.

Egh not really left, just expanded its opportunities to other realms and servers. Some players wanted to play different game modes of WoW which I'd say is realistic, as some people already pointed out - content has been here for some time now. Some people want to try new things which is okay - it's not like Inquisition left the server for good.
Retired

I'd say that trying is the best one can do in order to higher themselves from the people crying and only complaining. Whilst you try, it doesn't mean it is always going to be the most successful result but I'd like to think that it is still a better choice than standing idle.

People are bored as fuck here. Try eating pizza every single day for years, eventually, you will grow sick of it. Servers like these are meant to feed nostalgia, but once that nostalgia is gone then you have nothing left. Still, they stick around hoping for a *miracle* to happen.

Also, people prefer "fun" servers, and by that I mean instant-80 or higher rate of experience gains, a shop to buy end-game gear, etc. This server is blizzlike (or selective blizzlike...) so it would never allow such things to be implemented here.

That's the gist of it, really. Sorry, but your friend joined too late.

Longi. He's in total denial it's not even funny. It's more sad than anything (and no, this isn't an insult this is the actual truth).

Just to clarify, even though the server has been on a decline for some time now, there will still be sufficient people to do raids as long as you find the right guild for you. For PvP it's still possible, but it would be a very depressing experience if you're expecting the activity of retail, though the rivalry aspect is nice (you will get to know your opponents, unlike retail where you are unlikely to face the same opponent ever again).

Don't get too dragged down by some of the comments, it's still very possible to play here and if you spend some time here playing, you can eventually transfer (given you wish to) to a larger server. Considering TrueWoW is fairly strict when it comes to rates, I am certain other servers are very welcoming to former TrueWoW players (given you have enough play time, which you get by trying out the futures TrueWow has to offer for you).
