    Blizzard has new updates for our comrades*and Russian speaking players! There have been quite a few changes made with the anticipation of Wrath of the Lich King! All the information is below from WoW-Europe.com.


    Following the very successful launch of the Russian localization, the vast majority of Russian-speaking players have migrated over to the new Russian-language realms. Four English-language PvP realms in particular were largely populated by Russian-speaking players, so these realms now have low remaining populations. As such, we've decided to offer free character migration off these realms to join larger English-language communities. Once the migrations are complete, these realms will be brought down and prepped for the Wrath of the Lich King launch.

    More information can be found on the forums.


    Additional free migration has been opened for the Booty Bay and Thermoplugg realms to Deathguard. The free migration from Ashenvale and Soulflayer to Deathguard will remain open for the time being.

    In addition a new Russian language realm will be opened today for character creation - Lich King (??????-???).

    More information can be found on the Russian forums.
