  • Server population

    Dear GMs,

    It has come to our attention that server population in the early servers are dwindling. Please stop opening new servers. Instead put a server population counter on the server selection screen so that new players would choose the less populated servers and people would stop quitting. There are more than enough servers to accommodate the players. Focus on maintaining events on the servers that are already existing instead of the start up events on new servers every week.

    The more players in each server the more people would be willing to invest since they know the servers would be staying.

      You complain about people leaving for new servers, others complain about not having more servers. You see the problem here?
      R2 will gain more money via the players wanting to be top dog in the new servers, why would they stop now?

        I sadly must agree on the heavy population drop on early servers. I'm on S9 and we lost a lot of players here. Positive part of it: we get to know each others a lot more, negative part: poor competition now, could really use "fresh blood" I almost don't want to know how it looks like in S1-S5 servers ugh! Also negative part of the multiplication of new servers: some leave older servers because they think it will be easier for them to raise to top 10 ranking in a new server... Server merge? I'd like a bit more players in my lvl range to bash on / be bashed on xD always attacking / being attacked by the same 4-5 players gets tiring quite fast I must admit

          S1 still has about 300 people show up for each boss. We are also ground zero for having lvl 50+ smacking people around in bgs. So I can understand why people don't want to start on S1. I see maybe 1 or two new players a day hit lvl 11. My guess is by the time someone on s1 hits lvl 60 will have about 45 servers

              A server merge would be great though. They should implement features that make it good for new players to catch up like 200% exp boosts for new players on the old servers. Bonus packages that would help boost leveling like set items or purple items. If they wanted to earn money they shouldn't have removed the full set armors that could be bought with balens. Old servers need it more than new ones since the old servers would have players who would want to catch up. More catacomb runs for new players would be fair as well.

              OOT: a name change balens item should also be implemented.

                    I agree with this, except for putting a server population counter. New players will not choose the dead servers, they will choose the populated servers. The dead will become more dead, and the populated.. more populated. The only "fix" to this is server merge, which I'm sure they have plans for in the future, as a last minute "rescue" plan. All I can say is, making threads on this won't make any difference. The best thing for you (and anyone) to do now, is to enjoy where you are, take advantage of that and prepare for server merge. When the merge comes, and you're not ready for it, you will just be food for the top players and making new threads to complain on that.

                    1 thing I am curious about is, what happens when merge but 2 same name players? will everyone just have a tag [S(x)] or will those players be forced to change names via admin power?

                          i love it .. in the early time in my server there were about 500-600 players at each World Boss event .. it was full of lag and I get low amount of Gold/Daru .. now its 200-250
                          player .. no lag and good Gold/Daru .. also BG is fine .. why need more population if there isn't a trading system ?

                              Server merger is a great idea, or maybe while creation of new character there will be a randomized server selection?
                              this way there will be fresh blood in old server and each server will be populated evenly... if not it will be really boring to see the same old faces everyday...
