I hate to say it but the realm population decline seems to have stopped. There was a pretty heavy dropoff during the first few days, from 16k to 12k to 8k and then on down to 2-4k. But it's kind of settled there. Been pretty consistent queue numbers during peak hours for the past week now. Fairbanks is back up to a 4k queue today.

Sulfuras been pretty consistent. No queues before 7PM EST or so, but when everyone starts logging on after work & dinner from Eastern/Central zones, the queue climbs slowly, until it caps at several thousand at around 9PM. I'm hoping some folks transfer off.

Haven't seen much movement out of Stalagg either. Consistent 5k queues every night.

5k seems doable for me. That's like an hour and a half queue. Yeah I wish I could get into Fairbanks whenever I want, but I can't, but even at bad times a 90 minute wait is fine. That's enough time to start dinner, eat, clean up the kitchen, and be ready to go. I'm not moving servers based on a 5k queue. I'd move if it was still consistently 16k, because a 16k queue at 7PM means you're not playing that day. But 5k is manageable, and I'm already settled in. Seems like there are a lot of people in the same boat. We're all used to the queue now, the hot bath water no longer feels so warm. I wouldn't be surprised if few people actually move with a 5k queue.
