Blizzard will slowly merge realms on their World of Warcraft servers every week for the next two to three months.
Blizzard has announced that it will initiate a process so that World of Warcraft players who play on sparsely populated servers do not feel that their kingdom is “dead”. To do this, the measure that will be applied will be to merge these low-occupancy servers with larger ones.
This has been confirmed by Blizzard itself in a post on the World of Warcraft forums.
“From your history with your guild to your interactions with the surrounding economy, a kingdom with a healthy population offers more opportunities, and it has been several years since we last connected some kingdoms,” the company said.
This process will occur gradually over the next few months, merging kingdoms each week during the summer.
“As this project unfolds, we will post notices prior to weekly connections in appropriate regions and languages,” the statement read.
The process will be weekly and users will be notified in advance.
“During each maintenance period, everything will automatically combine for the affected realms. When maintenance is complete, players in the affected realms will log into Battle for Azeroth and discover that they are now part of a larger connected kingdom community. By At the same time, we will merge the discussion forums,” they concluded.
Apart from this, the presentation event of the next World of Warcraft expansion, Shadowlands, is still undated, since it was postponed due to the George Floyd case and its political-social repercussion during the past weeks.
