    Thelanis doesn't have much going on now. Highly recommend making anything else recommended, or better yet, server merges. Just do it, we know it's coming.

    Ghallanda is only that way because it defaults to the top of the list, and people not used to the launcher changes keep logging in there by mistake.

    It's much more likely that Ghallanda gets a large portion of new players because of this. The new launcher has been out for months. I'm not sure what it'd say about DDO's playerbase if they STILL haven't learned that Ghallanda defaults to the top and STILL click on it.

    Yup, I noticed this myself when switching between the Lamm Client and the proper one. After the agreement thing it defaults to Ghallanda. Got caught once myself.

    I thought Khyber had the rep as most elitist server...

    I admit Thelanis has a few real charmers who run raids.

    Ghall's the defualt server, but the wierd thing is some other server used be the default and we didn't see that wierd hugely elevated activity. It spikes every time Lam opens and new players are definitely hitting it more than any other server, but I wouldn't be surprised if something is being misreported or multiplied there. I would love to know what it's LFM's look like at midnight. Guess I'll roll a toon and look.

    Another possibility is DDO used to randomly select the top server to show, or it used to be sorted by ping times... This would be pretty much a random skewing.

    One question foremost in my mind though, is the attrition we've been seeing a result of other servers not getting any fresh players because Ghall is getting the bulk of them? It's certainly not helping.

    Yep the people that jump too Lam and check new stuff and jump back to real game accidently jump into Ghal all the time.

    The log in once log in to server is set at top as default so just get used to hitting as fast as can to get in game. So it is easy to do even for players that have played forever.

    Shoot almost did it this morning after checking Lam last night barely caught myself.

    That added with being default at the top is probably why they are where they are.

    As far as person who stated another was default for awhile. If remember we used to be auto logged into are server and not have to select it so that is why the numbers are so skewed. Or could be something totally different I have been wrong before
