    Default Doubled Population on Ghallanda

    http://www.ddoracle.com/Traffic.html

    Something doubled the amount of active players on this server over night. What was it?

    They gave up the ghost on poor Wayfinder and mass emigrated to you guys? That's the only guess I got.

    Maybe this?

    We are very pleased to announce that character Undeletes are again available! Similar to the recently reactivated Guild renames, this Premium Service will be free to all players who have VIP access or have purchased Turbine Points in the last 45 days.

    Players can only have one Premium Service open at a time (Guild renames included). If a player has more than one Premium Service request open, the second one will be closed and the player will need to submit a new one later. Additionally, we can only accept one character per Undelete Request. Single requests that contain more than one character will not be processed.

    As Undeletes have been unavailable for a few months, we expect a large number of these requests to be coming in right now. Please be aware that there may be extended delays at first, due to high volume. We appreciate your patience.

    P.S. Expect an announcement about the current status of character transfers sometime next week!

    Too friggin hot. better off staying inside and play DDO.

    That said I have seen many return who haven't played in a while and we're a month away from an "expansion." A population bump should be expected.

    Given that, simultaneous with the G-land bump, all the other servers' reported traffic is well below normal for the recent past, I'm guessing the data's being mis-represented somewhere, and DDOracle is reading it as being all for Ghallanda.

    Did this coincide with the rename of Wayfinder, to remove the "[DE]"? That could mess up reporting, I imagine. I see DDOracle is still reporting it as "[DE] Wayfinder" (in the chart legends, at least).

    Interesting stats for sure... but, seeing the actual #s of logins by hour.... does it seem that the numbers are low? Peak of 1000? Or am I reading that wrong...

    new launcher shows me Ghallanda always at first place on first enter at that computer / user profile. It resets sometimes and i mistakely enters to Ghallanda. Previous launcher radomized orderr in the list of servers

    Thelanis: Shewind the Airbender (Sorc20/Epic5 -> Bard20/Epic8 -> Rog20/Epic8/Epic2 -> Harper_FvS20/Epic4 -> Art19), Azaxe (Rog18/Wiz2 -> Sorc20/Epic6)

    if it is tied to logins, it surprisingly coincides with Crystal Cove. My assumption is that a lot of it is people like me who flip from one toon to the other, trying to upgrade CC items.

    Odd that it's ghallanda only. I couldn't have driven anyone out of any server except sarlona, right? so...

    This, the increase in G-Land logins appeared at the same time as this change.

    Only 5% of the players read the forum and are aware of the change. Only a few read what appears in the launcher window... So most people have a Pavlovian reflex when they see the server list ( generated by several month/years of playing DDO ) they just press enter without reading the server name, as they know it's going to be their server ( as it used to be )... and ends up on G-Land which is not their server... so they have to log out and back in on the right server.

    In the end we have an increased number of logins/hour on G-Land due to that. Don't be fooled though, the number of people that actually stay there once logged is like all the other servers ( except Wayfinder ).
    On G-Land : Flavilandile, Blacklock, Yaelle, Millishande, Larilandile, Gildalinde, Tenalafel, and many other...
