Many of you have already voiced your opinion, whether you want a new Cataclysm realm in 2019 and if you want Hades and Artemis to be merged. We can‘t share exact numbers of the current voting’s state, but we can tell you that the strong majority of players from both realms wants merge. The question regarding the new realm isn’t that obvious as the one about merge.
To make it clear, you can vote for both questions and both can happen if players are interested in them. The opening of the potential new realm will take some time and probably won’t happen in the following months, should you want this outcome. The older realms will stay as they are (be it standalone or merged, based on the outcome of the voting). The voting will be active up to the server update on the 4th of March.
