We saw the news the other day, Borean Tundra/Shadowsong getting connected to Drak’thul, Mok’Nathal, Silvermoon, and Skywall. It has been a few years since we were connected to Shadowsong, and I don’t recall there being any major issues back then. So this was good news, more people to do things with, chances for struggling guilds to fill out rosters and maybe improve their raid teams. Some adjustments to the auction house prices. All in all, it should be a good thing…
And add to those Hydrasis and Terenas.
Until it isn’t.
Oh, come on now Blizzard, you are better than this. I spend close to 2 hours on Wednesday evening going through ranks, making adjustments, looking over some inactive characters, and cleared the guild down to 900. That should have left me room for 100 people to join, and I could have logged in later to prune some more if needed. So what do I read in our guild Discord after servers came back up? 43 characters were added back into the guild, and I can only imagine that all of the other changes were reverted too. It is bad enough that I am stressed out over the possibility of having to tell people sorry you can only have 2 characters max in the guild because of some outdated notion that the cap should remain 1000 no matter what. They keep connecting realms and it just makes it more and more difficult to maintain a place for people to play together with. I have looked at the options of creating sister guilds for overflow, but that is just an organizational nightmare, besides that fact that everyone would need an add on allowing them to cross guild chat with each other. It is only going to get worse as expansion after expansion they keep creating new classes or playable races, and connecting servers, and not addressing the cap. If anything they should just make the change to 1000 accounts and to add a column in the guild interface to show an account name. It would certainly make the task of removing someone a lot easier.
Another issue I ran across is we are no longer listed in the guild finder, so gg Blizz
