    Default Server Marges In The Future?...

    So, I play on Ghallanda server and I've noticed it's fairly dead (at least compared to how it was a year or two ago).

    I'm curious if the almighty Dev/etc have any plans to merge servers in the near future to solve the problems of severe lack of LFMs/population in general.


    Edit: Marges instead of Merges is most likely the result of lack of sleep or me just being a dumbass (or perhaps both~~~)

    Ghallanda is the most popular server, with around 17,000 people logging in per day (on average). Maybe you aren't looking in the right spots?

    But no, no server merges. Can you imagine the mess that would cause?

    Default Server merges?

    Why? They will not stop the majority from doing what they are doing, namely just running solo, doing guild runs or private channel runs. You might get a few more LFG listings but I doubt you would see that many more.

    I'm curious what sort of mess you're talking about. The only complaint I've seen thus far is the likelihood of name changes.

    Ghallanda isn't dead at all.

    Yes, because merging the servers would completely solve the LFM problem! Or no it wouldn't because very few people on any server take the LFM system seriously. The majority use guild, user channels, friend lists, etc as the LFM system makes it quite a bit difficult to weed out those who are terrible and those who cause drama. Merging servers wouldn't change anything. The ratio of LFMs-to-non-LFM parties would remain the same.

    Turbine + moving hundreds of characters, inventories and various other things to another server + lag = mess

    I mean, really, I love Turbine, and I love this game, and I am generally marked as a Turbine fanboi and what have you....but seriously, do YOU trust them enough to pull that off without losing your gear or toons?

    Doesn't this topic come up every other week or so? It's all player speculation and perhaps desire with no word from the Turbine people. If and when it does happen it will be because of the company's bottom line and not because some players want it (or don't).

    If you're using the LFM panel to make the assumptions, it's not the server that is dead, but the LFM. It's mainly related to ******** Streak and the unwillingness of the players to break it.
    As such they all prefer to rely on reliable people through guild channels, private channels, or to solo quests instead of taking chances with a party of PUGs.

    Now G-Land when you use those guild and private channels is quite alive and there's no problem making groups for quests... as long as they are Elite for the ******** Streak.
    On G-Land : Flavilandile, Blacklock, Yaelle, Millishande, Larilandile, Gildalinde, Tenalafel, and many other...

    Moving a character to another server DESTROYS their reincarnation cache...

    Nuff said?

    What solves the lfm problem is people putting up lfms. The issue with merging servers is if Turbine does do something that brings back players there would not be room to support it. They still have a few things they know they can do to bring back people. I bet Epic Shroud would do it.

    Yup.

    I play on the OP's server. Put up an LFM. It'll fill.

    And yes, we need Epic Shroud.

    wish granted, but all epic shroud items do damage over time if the wearer is a troll. there is no cleansing ritual to this but paladin trolls are immune to the damage

    Technically speaking playing a paladin in any group could be considered trolling.

    i know, and now with ghostbane bringing them all out of the woodwork due to new found uberness it's troll o'clock every night!

    speaking of which, you do realise the epic shroud items will feature ghostbane extensively don't you? only way to keep fresh blood in the game

    Right now - nah.
    The only server that would really benefit from a merge would be Wayfinder. And honestly, most people there are proud to rough it and like playing there.


    I can see merges down the line if a couple of factors continue on their current trend. Maybe another two years. But for right now - nah.
