Sad Realizations

It’s a sad thing, seeing your server die.

I’m not saying it’s an official death sentence for my home server of almost four years now, of course, but I have the feeling it’s coming close. I took a hiatus for about a month in an attempt to try to straighten things out for myself and explore a few other games. When I came back, I was saddened to discover that the usual chat channels, once full of life and happy conversation, were dead. In fact, most of the time, it seemed like I was the only person in them. To say it broke my heart was an understatement. I love Thorium Brotherhood. It’s where I met a wonderful group of people, people I’m proud to call my friends to this day. Unfortunately, it seems as though most of my friends have moved on to other games. The majority of my friends list haven’t logged on in months, and while I still love my characters, I’m slowly realizing that I don’t think Thorium Brotherhood might ever be server that I knew again.

As a result, I’m server shopping once again. I haven’t done this in years, and it’s a little¬†scary.¬†As a roleplayer, I’m really only looking at RP server, maybe even RP-PvP. I know the “standards”, of course. Moon Guard and Wyrmrest Accord are certainly viable options, and the servers I see lots of people recommending, but at the same time, I’m a little worried about this. For one thing, I left Moon Guard to escape some particularly bizarre drama after I left my old guild. For another, Wyrmrest is where a couple of the dramamongers went to. If I went to WrA, would I run into them again? Would they even remember me? Also, I’m in Eastern Standard Time. Would going to a Pacific-based server throw me off too much? WrA does have a few points in it’s favor, however, as a few of my friends have gone there.

If not either of them, though, where do I go? What do I do? Do I just abandon the thought of RP entirely? The thought of that kills me, to be perfectly honest.

So, fellow Warcraft players, help me out. Any recommendations?

  1. Ven and I are originally from Thorium Brotherhood and we sadly reached this realization a year and a half ago. We ended up leaving and going to Azuremyst. It’s a PVE server [our main interest was raiding]. I wish I had a recommendation for you in terms of RP, but I do not :(

    • *hug* It’s okay, hun. At least I’m not alone in the feeling that way about the server, though. It makes me feel a bit better.

      • I can rec you a guild on ThoBro, but they are having their own activity issues… and several of the members have actually rolled toons on our server to hang out with our pretty active guild.

        I do hope you find something :)

  2. Honestly, I’ve been finding SWTOR to be a much more rewarding expierince lately. If you are intruiged by sci-fi, check ou the Ebon Hawk — lots of good RP happening there most the time.

    • Haha, I’ve played SWTOR in the past, and I even came back for a little while when it went free to play, but I’ve discovered I’m more at home playing in fantasy universes than sci-fi. That said, Ebon Hawk is where I wound up, too. :) Hello!
