I have read a bunch of posts about the folks from sarlona welcoming us to there server. But that makes me think... Us from adar have a much higher population.. Yes they get there server name... But are we moving there.... But will the majority of the players there be from adar or sarlona? I have heard the term refuges alot... But at this point in time I have given up on being a refugee.... Think I rather be called an invader! lol

who said anything about being leet? I am saying there will be a big culture shock. Adar has a strong economy where supply and demand drives the market. you guys are gonna cry the when you look at the auction house on monday. this is the main point i was making.

please keep your inferiority complex to yourself thanks.

It'll come together quite well. We're all in good shape to mix it up, sort it out and get up to speed.

The auction house will the biggest shock to you guys on sarlona. As for a whole leet thing i dont see where you get off with that statement. The comparisons made from our server to yours from what i have seen is econmy wise. And from day one you took that the wrong way thinking we meant we're leet character wise....... Im sure some adar people will take down some of your people in pvp and im sure some of your sarlona people will do the same to us. If there was one server so leet that they cant be beat that would be cool. But of course that leet of a server does not exist. I am one to say i dont want to be on your server in the first place. But you need to except it and so dont i. And it does not really matter what anyone thinks about your server and our server because they will all be the same on monday and there's nothing we can do about it...

really that was the main point u where makeing... that's good for you maybe you should put your points out there better.... instead of tossing a general trash talking statement out there for people to take in the way the majority of your server is talking about sarlona...

as for inferiority complex.... i'm not even sure if makeing a coment about this is needed... my actions on this will speak for themself

I agree I missed those threads. As for the statement that the Adar "economy" is run by supply and demand...please lets not hurt ourselves here greenspan...What do you think Sarlona's is governed by...roleplaying ??? I been to adar and seen your ah....I honestly couldn't even tell the difference...if anything Sarlona prices were more extreme. I know most of the vocal posters have said that its all in fun..and I am cool with that...I have don the same...but I really hope that some of you don't actually believe what you post.

If you do...then come down to the lobster the first day of the merge... and me and half our server will introduce you to our "roleplaying" skills. Adar...as a server...has a big mouth. I am looking forward to see if you guys back up what you hype. Not that pvp is some all encompassing skill that measures someones worth as a player. Not at all...but still...I will enjoy your frustration...and I won't elaborate further. We pawn quests too...but unfortunately we can't tag you along to see that ;). Anyways .. I look forward to meeting and grouping with all of you come monday and hopefully the lag don't mess up our minglings...

Its funny how this thread ran way of what I tried to start it about. I'm not gonna get in a "who's vorpal is bigger than the others" contest. Made 2 toons on sarlona to check it out and got them both to lvl 7-8. I know when I looked at the auction house I wished I had some money from home to take advantage of a couple sweet deals I couldn't afford yet. I played with a bunch of folks I really didn't want to ever play with again. But then again Got folks on adar I don't wanna play with either. Think I met maybe 3 folks I really liked and hope to see them around after the merge... Fact of the matter is though....

You either see threads saying, Oh welcome from sarlona... Like we are gonna be your guests.

Or threads like this one is turning into... The old we better than you argument.
I'm not gonna get into whether on server has a better player base or average skill cause its a mute point. My point was I really don't like these refugee posts and the welcome to our home type bs. After the merge there will be more of us from adar there than from sarlona.

Peace

you can't say there are more adarians than sarlonites just because of merlask's consensus think logically.

Only turbine knows the true ammount of people on each server that are active wouldn't they choose the servers with the most ppl to stay on as the one merged server so there are less people overall ****ed about the merger?.

Welcome to our server is us being nice and not like a xorian that hates everyone you should realize that and appreciate that we aren't all a bunch of jerks.

Our economy is driven by the AH aswell as every other server but some of us like to lowball things why because we can the only way prices will even out is if we take it into our own hands and fight the plat sellers with lower prices and refuse to buy then that high.

I put things up for what I think they are worth plat being a non issue i don't feel the need to charge insane prices for things feel free to post them whatever price you wish i will continue to sell things at a reasonable price.

As for the ****ed off posts from some sarlonites it may be due to the fact that we have welcomed both servers and truly feel for the loss of your server name and have the decency to WELCOME you and still get these posts from the other servers craping on us it gets old.

Who cares who is where.
If Adar is going to have more people then Sarlona don't you think that Sarlona would be the server that was moving to Adar?
No matter whether you are from Aerenal or Adar, you will be from Sarlona now. Adar and Aerenal is dead. When people from all 3 servers realize that things will be better.
If there are problems with it, simply stop playing the game or create characters on another existant server.
Things of the past should stay there. Adar is the past...let it die and remember how it was.

I'm lazy, turbine posted something about how the merges might seem odd because of technical reasons. If you wanna argue the point that there are so many folks on sarlona... well maybe your right. Maybe you have 50 million folks that log in once a month. Fact is on a day to day basis there are more folks on adar. I don't base this on merlask's lil report. Actually I think its bs. But I have to say she spent alot of time on it and its the best there is. Srry mer but I didn't get the same feel of the server you did. And maybe having a +1 loot/xp weekend during your fact finding skewed things.

For you folks who say we don't like adar players cause they loot *****s and think there leet... Can't say I've met many on sarlona but there around.

For you folks saying welcome to my planet. The people of adar are coming, and you will be the minority. For you folks saying welcome I don't wanna hear it. Fact is we lose our server name big woop. But things like guild name conflicts etc. really gets me angry. We are not poor orphans that need a home... we are players just like you. oh and btw... I might have mentioned this... there are more of us than you. So its not really a merge... Sarlona will become the new adar, with some new faces.

So, actually, the ONLY thing that will change (other than some player names) is the name on the little button you click to start the game. Same Stormreach, Same Marketplace, Same Lobster etc, etc, etc. It's not like Adar had some zones Aerenal didn't have. Sarlona didn't have more quests than the others. The only difference anyone will notice is more LFMs. Oh and Coyle kicks butt on Sarlona...seriously, on OUR server Coyle is 9 feet tall and actually contributes to the party instead of just dieing really fast....No not really..Coyle sucks everywhere and we can't knock Nat Gann off his bamboo pole either. Welcome fellow players!:D

Yep. Some of will be FROM Adar. Some of us will be FROM Aerenal. and some of us will be FROM Sarlona.

Quarion mentioned the merger logistics depended on technology. For all any of us know, the character db's from our former servers will get scripted on a box at Turbine Central High Command, while the MCSE's configure a completely new cluster in a hollow mountain. For some reason the new server happens to carry the name Sarlona. Perhaps in a bizarre twist, it primarily uses machines from the Adar cluster. That sounds like work :p

No one lives on this planet forever. Make your absence a sorrow, and your presence a blessing.

See ya Tuesday!

I think since Adar was the original server in Beta, the server was poor performance wise in comparison to Sarlona's.

I am sorry...I have to ask this again...is this a serious comment??? What are we going to be crying about? That your uber items are so uber that we can't afford them? Or is their something that I am missing? Not trying to flame you ... I am just trying to understand what exactly this means.

They mean that people have accepted paying uber prices for junk here.


Now I am wondering if lebrac was on adar not long after the merger was mentioned as a certain toon named roleplayer :D Yall just have the same trash talk so i am curious;)

08-06-2007, 04:43 AM
I find it funny that no one from Adar has considered that now they might have to lower prices, thats right more supply, hence lower prices, more competition. Did you all forget your 11th grade economics?

actually, what i find to be fairly unique about adar's economy is that valuable weapons have such a LOW price attached to them

while i was playing on fernia, you wouldnt have seen a banisher on the AH for less than 2mil pp to save your life

on adar just a couple months later, i was seeing banishers going for around 200k - 300k pp on the ah (unless it was a rapier) regularly

when those same economics spill over to the trade forums, you find people putting up trade lists and given the relative value of items on the server it becomes very hard to find items that fit people's desires AND be able to come up with an equivalent trade - since no one on adar will simply trade something that is 'uber' for something not quite as 'uber' simply cuz it will help them more... 99% of all trades have to meet both parties' relative and arbitrary values.... which can be very unforgiving

so when people say you're in for a culture shock it simply means that we dont usually play around when it comes to trades - adarains simply have a reputation of being more stubborn and critical than most when it comes to their loot-swapping

maybe that will change with the server merge.

Maybe on Sarlona someone will want to trade for one of my banishers? Finally? :D

I think the loot weekends and Gainthold had something to do with that.

I would put disruptors on AH with no minimum except for the base value, had to many of them and few were RR.

You are not refugees. We are becoming a new dynamic groups of adventures. The powers that be have decided to keep one of the old server names out of conveinence. Lets stop the negative waves.
Nobody is in for a suprise. there is no power structure in game. You group up with who you want you squelch or ignore who you want.
I'm looking forward to 2 to 3 times as many people to learn new things from.

I for one am pretty excited on having a server bursting at the seams with people running quests and whatnot. I know a my entire guild is actually pretty excited as well. Although we do not pug a ton, we do run a lot of quests with 4-5 guildies and 1-2 others and we are excited to see some new blood. Of course, there will some server loyalty, but I think that will only make it more fun. Now we have a little story for our Bio's, eh? We are world (or server) travelers now...

I have alts on Khyber and Thelanis. The game remains the same, EXCEPT the number of players has visibly increased. You see many, many more LFMs, and the who panel suggests prime time peeps or better most of the time.

I'm also looking forward to the Server Merge. Name conflicts be it Toon or Guild are of some concern to me, but If there is a conflict so be it. Change the character name. I think that I will keep it. The Adar shard has provided me with alot of fun and new friends from across the country and around the world. I will wear the name with pride.


As for the welcome and refuge posts. Sarlonians, Adarian's, and Aerenalions. All are welcomed whole heartedly to MY new server. Those who want to join me on a quest welcome. I will add the ones I like and the one I don't like :eek: Nice little comments ( Memory for names is not the best ) :D.


I will remember Adar server fondly, but in reality it has moved with me. If I like the new people. I will join in but if I don't then I will just continue with what I have always done. Enjoy the game I love and quest with my friends.


In conclusion old friends see you soon. New friends can't wait to meet you. As for the rest enjoy yourself , because I know I'm going to.

Hello everyone,
I just wanted to say that while I will have to think which server my characters are on for awhile.....We should all remember that it was getting difficult to find groups at low-mid level for those of us that weren't hard core gamers playing every day for 12+ hours. It was getting dull sitting for a couple of hours waiting to fill a group.
GH is fun but how many times can you really run it with a capped character getting 2k exp, for some so-so chests and the hope of a good (or granted sometimes great) end reward?
I look forward to seeing some new faces and, as always, enjoy meeting up with old friends.
Be nice to each other, we are going to be together for awhile.

So a polite and friendly welcome makes people angry? I think that inane of a concept just blew my logic processor.

hunter Gren, if you feel that people offering a polite welcome is treating you like a refugee, that's YOUR issue, not theirs. They were only trying to be nice.

Claiming it as "fact" that any server was more populated than any other is silly. None of us have numbers. None of us have anything more than speculation and anecdotal evidence.

Saying that Sarlona is now the "new Adar" smacks of childish e-ego. Who cares? We're all on one server now. We all have more people to group with. We all have more people to purchase nice items from. Is this seriously something that so bothers you and is so on your mind that you're going to try and puff your e-chest out and get all e-uppity about it? I'll apologize now if that makes me chuckle more than a little.

So you lost a character name and/or guild name? Yeah, I bet that's the players fault. How DARE they make the same character or guild name as you on an entirely different server? How DARE they not message you and check with you to see if it was ok. E-ego. If you have a complaint about it, file it with Turbine, they made the change, not the players.

Hell name the server Bob's Spinnin' World O' Eberron for all I care. Bring on 650xs the amout of players from Adar as from Sarlona onto it. Why does this matter when you're in a quest having fun with other people in the game?


Man, of all the utterly stupid things to get upset about.:rolleyes:
