Same on mine. We got a HUGE purple population in the merger (already having a large purple pop) and 6 hours later purple has every single territory set for war. Not sure they really paid attention to what they were doing there.
AGS, in their foresight, allows players to switch factions after a certain amount of time has passed. If you want to balance the factions, the players have the ability at their fingertips to make it happen.
Because when you swap a faction to re balance your server you start at 0 rep and have to level up again. So it was more so a response to the above comment and not to your original topic but has relevance to your situation and a lot of server situations if they are unbalanced also. Thanks have a good day
Yeah somewhat same happened to mine. Only Yellow now owns everything except like 3 spots. Before on my server the map was at least balanced. Whoever was in charge of picking which servers to merge did not do their job properly.
Here’s a reply from them regarding the merge decisions. They are also planning on resetting faction change timers.
The faction balance section is kinda vague, not sure if they meant if they merged servers that have similar faction balance or if they meant they are trying to achieve 1/3 per faction balance (if so, not sure if they looked at total vs active population either.).
