I'm tired of arguing with people who refuse to listen, who only want more LFG fodder or harassment targets and therefore denigrate, insult, and flat out lie about anyone who speaks up with concerns about merging.
Cross-server is the way to go, in my opinion. I'd be so happy with that. I don't want server merges...

Server merges might increase population for a few servers, yes. But think about how much trouble Harbinger has. Harbinger's the most populated server, period. Insane lag, a lot of crashes, the server hamsters faceplanting off their wheels.... a'right, I kid with that last one, but you get the idea. More people = more stuff for computers to render = more lag. All to get a few seconds shaved off of queue times? Hardly worth it.
Not to mention, there are some people who *like* their quieter servers. I'm one of them. I don't want to see the population of Ebon Hawk - generally nice and friendly - get mixed in with the population of Harbinger (...no explanation needed ). I like staying on Begeren Colony and Shadowlands where it doesn't feel like I'm choking when I visit the fleet.

A little off topic, but it won't matter so much now with the new thread. but I've been wondering, could anyone paint me a picture about what that wasically wabbit Harby is like, specifically their version of DK? - Assuming if you also have experienced EH's version?

I remember them saying cross server didn't work out in their internal testing which lead to the now famous "better than cross server" quote, but did they ever go into specifics?

Nope. But now we have 90cc transfers and PvP or PvE instances, so I think that's likely what they were working on.
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

About as tiring as the server crashes. I mean who doesn't love the now weekly server crashes and rollbacks. Call it the Sunday/Monday JC special now. You seem you want to deny it for some strange reason. Maybe you like having crashes and rollbacks all the time?

DK on Harby is the worst of the worst. Think of it as a cesspool in the middle of a garbage dump. The chat there makes what goes on at the Fleet look tame.

JC was fine until the servers were "consolidated". Should have left it where it was. Now its like Harbinger as far as stability.
