good to know, thanks!
Cross Server play instead maybe?
Thank you! I’ll keep watching for an update.
What happens to the territories during a server merge?
What happens to Windsward, for example, if it is controlled by yellow on server 1 and by green on server 2 and these are then merged?
I was on the relaxed side so far. But I see more and more people getting into trouble to complete even their main quest, because less and less people are even able to help due to the server I play on getting less players every day.
With the original plans that never would have been a problem, but when I get to that well guy, I may be the only one on the server who needs the quest
It starts hindering progress.
cross server on a sandbox game ? No thanks, i don’t want a wow 2. and please guys found a guild or mate to play and you can do what you want after …
Don’t you guys think there are players out there on dead servers & they’re free to farm the best possible gear without being interrupted? They will be transferring to one of those populated servers after they’re done to ruin the game for anyone else having a life.
Need a server merge in saturday online players peak 260k new world is losing players very fast next week its gonna be around 150k after that 100k after that ? @Kay
I like a almost empty server, allows me to get some farming done to improve tradeskills.
Once maxed, then merge
Maxing trade skills costs a ton of gold. On a dead server, there is limited gold.
I’m maxing Armoring and it takes me over 5k gold from taxes alone to grind 150 to 180 armoring. The last twenty levels is looking like well over 10k gold in crafting taxes.
Edit: Maxing crafting + refining is not possible on truly dead servers. It’s a paradise for gathering professions. Crafting + Refining require T4 and most importantly T5 stations. T5 stations cost 10k gold to start the upgrade PLUS the time investment for completing the town project (5,000 town project points). The station will likely get downgraded every 4 days from an invasion. Crafting requires multiple (usually 4 or 5) T5 stations to get the raw materials upgraded to craft lv 60+ gear.
Reference: 1.28x crafting tax
At least close char creation to dead server so in the future you will have less headache.
This would kill the server dynamic like it did in wow. It’s fun to see the same name pop-up on your server and having a past with those people. I highly doubt cross server would be beneficial specially in open world and in expedition. In OPR that’s another story, having a cross realm queue would make having a grp queue and a solo player queue posible could be interesting
Might want to toss in an option to change faction. Being forced onto a server that may have zero territories controlled by my faction seems kind of rude. I know this is a touchy subject as keeping faction balance and wars going is important. But if I go from having homes and materials scattered throughout my faction controlled territories to none at all, that’s F**ked up.
Really think in the meantime additional transfer tokens should be handed out. So many are stuck on low pop servers with nothing to do.
Honestly, my server gets the same numbers as the OP and I love it. I don’t need 2,000 people playing. I don’t even need 300. I have my 30 or so company mates and I’m good to go. I hope that there will always be options for us “quality over quantity” players that just want a chill experience with as few randos as possible.
I’m holding off on transferring until the mergers. I don’t want to end up with toxic players.
There’s a dude that posts here on the forums named @Beacon - He says he keeps his city’s tax rates maxed, because he wants more people to PvP (tagged you so that you can clear up my inaccuracy if you want, Beacon). Like, that’s LITERALLY the last server I’d want to be merged with.
I just hope there’s always a “Low pop” option for us that want it, and I hope to avoid any “PvP” hardcore “Bro!” servers. Carebears and Try Nots - that’s my speed.
You kids knew that the server population would die down after launch when you demanded new servers because of queues and now you are complaining.
What did you do with your first token?
