The war effort is done very soon and all kind of buffs too. The xp event was introduced to get new people (it worked, a lot of nost refugees were happy that they had the chance to recover lost 60s here in no time). Our xp event was introduced right after Kronos finished there own very long 7x xp event. Kronos didn't died out after that. People demanded the xp buff because the success on Kronos.

ofc the staff could have just stopped it with the shutdown of nost because we got a lot of new folks, but then people had complained/left too. Nobody knows how many people would have started here or swtched to Kronos because its better known if we hadn't the 5x xp boon at the moment Nost died. It's always just speculation and it doesn't even matters. It's complete fine if there are 2 servers, that can offer vanilla wow with a relative healthy population.

I might be wrong here but after a few years of playing on private servers I've noticed they get to a critical mass where word of mouth and other marketing ensures a steady supply of new players. Anything less than that critical mass and the server will slowly lose players.

Achieving and maintaining that mass is the goal of any private server. The 5x XP event was designed to get The Rebirth up to that mass again.

Other servers have done a similar thing, and been successful. The Rebirth only did it on quests (and not right across all xp) because they wanted to highlight the strength of their quest scripting. Quite a clever move I think.

Welcome to the world of private servers. It's not a place that you can come in demanding things and assume that everyone agrees with you. However if you don't take yourself too seriously you'll be fine - Bear in mind that you have to opt-in to the xp thing. If the xp thing was such a terrible (short-term) addition to The Rebirth, presumably no one would be using it, right? Instead it's been widely successful.

Consider the possibility that many other players don't agree with you. There is a small, very vocal, minority that hates the 5xp. Most of the players seems to be fine with it. Either way, it's probably going to be gone in a few weeks so just relax and come back for some Deadmines in a month's time.

What is required critical mass in your opinion and did Rebirth met it?
