While talking about server imbalance with a guild mate I said something, as a possible solution, and he laughed and called me the most evil person in the game.
Some ideas are just a little too insane to even mention, even more so when they are ideas you know will be pissing people off. Even if it would really piss some people off I decided to share my insane idea and would love to hear some other insane ideas that you know will never happen but are so evil or so insane that they might actually be good.
The basic idea for this is that the idea must be something big, not something like asking for a nerf of one ability or something, and it must be something that would actively be good for the game over all, which means no making something too easy or too hard ideas because neither is in the best interest of the game by itself.
So lets get to the idea that labeled me as evil.
My idea is that they merge some servers and don't even tell anyone they are doing it. They just do it.
Lets take PvP realm A with 96% alliance and 4% horde and PvP realm B that is 97% horde and 3% alliance.
One day during an extended down time. Merge them. Now you have a more reasonably balanced server. I can hear the screams now. Can you imagine going into stormwind as a horde and actually seeing people that can fight back? Culture shock for sure. No more easy wins for this people only rolled on a PvP server that was heavily favoring one side because they wanted no real competition and easy kills.
Just the thought of all the people crying because they can no longer get their easy kills is enough to keep me laughing whenever I think about it.
Yes, I am evil and this is my insane idea.
What sort of insane ideas can you come up with?
