You'd think there'd be a couple of lowbie LFMs for people who were hopping over to test the Kool Aid, but no. Every time I've been over there's been 0-4 LFMs, with a heavy tendency toward the 0.
Quomodo cecidisti de cælo, Lucifer, qui mane oriebaris. corruisti in terram, qui vulnerabas gentes.
Qui dicebas in corde tuo: In cælum conscendam, super astra Dei exaltabo solium meum.
Qui non proficit, deficit.
Adding this dieing server a bonus is wrong, first because they get something other paying customers don't, second, because it won't work.
They should finish off the server, send toons to g-land (like earlier), and then give them something for their trouble.

Its not a freebie, its a balancing. You get +10% XP, but you have to put up with a stagnant community. If you play on another server, you dont get bonus XP, but you get an active AH, more LFMs, more active and advanced guilds, etc.
Its a tradeoff, just like choosing anything else in the game.
Why so gloom. Does no one else see the potential here?
That's correct. Wayfinder is now THE 100 favor farm server lol.
Through avarice, evil smiles; through insanity, it sings.
For example, just yesterday, in a Delara's run one of our new migrants seemed to get a bit disappointed that, even after explaining what window farming was to those who didn't know, nobody saw a lot of point to doing the same quest twice in a row just for xp that every quest gives. So, yes, we are seeing some come for the xp, I just don't think many will be staying due to the lack of concern over it that many already there feel. That or so many will come as to change the whole flavor of the server to be the same old "work the game" flavor the other servers seem to have.
I appreciate this iniziative of Turbine (no, I dont play in Wayfinder) but dont think that will solve the problem.
Server merging is the only solution
Don't worry about what other people have or don't have.
Advocating repeated nerfs in the name of "balancing the game" then complaining about how DDO is moving away from D&D, is a direct contradiction in logic - D&D 3.5 (what DDO is based on) is not a balanced game. We can either have a balanced clone MMO with homogenized classes, or we can have a D&D game. We cant have both.
I've played on every server and Wayfinder is by far the one I like best.
Not to completely rabbit trail this solution, but keep in mind Wayfinder was launched and billed as the German language server.
Which always seemed a bit odd to me.
I'd rather see (and this can TOTALLY be done player side) a few chat channels established and promoted on each server.
Log into any server you like, join the channel and BOOM! lingual hookup achieved.
That being said, I speak english solely and would probably only join said channels to augment my foreign language studies. :P
Now back to the small point I wanted to make.
With such a selective audience at launch, is it any wonder the population is smaller than not?
I wouldn't like to see the server merge anywhere, though - first time completion TP per server is still something I like to hit when the need arises in my budget and it's even more of a necessity for certain other players.
