Bonechewer is a PvP server having game time consistent with the pacific time zone. Initially, it was originally a low population server. When the first ever transfers from Warsong to Bonechewer opened up in early 2005, the server gradually grew from a low population server to a listed medium-to-high population server.
In PvE progression, Bonechewer is predominantly Alliance-sided. When purchasable realm-to-realm transfers opened, many horde individuals transferred off, along with several high-profile alliance guilds intact, including Blacklisted and Eye Candy. Bonechewer at that time was plagued with a long history of server instability and long queue times.
In PvP, Bonechewer is a part of Battlegroup 1.
Bonechewer has the most number of Filipinos in WoW US (other realm with many Filipinos is Coilfang and a budding Filipino community in Trollbane).

Then after a time delay, Blacklisted, Escaper, and other organized guilds would attack SW and IF. There was an estimated of about 2x40=80 to 3x40=120 Horde participants.thread
