Oceanic Servers plans?

I have been talking to people about this for a couple of months as well and I think the best solution is to merge all 3 servers into a single PVE (Dalborra?) server with a dedicated RP chat channel.

As it stands now there isnt much if any world PVP that is happening that I know of (correct me if I'm wrong) and I would say even the most dedicated PVP player would be happier to have warzones pop regularly and run around flagged for PVP in open world if they wanted to (even on Dalborra a lot of people do this already) and actually get some ranked Warzones going again, it has become almost impossible to get a ranked Warzone on Dalborra in the last month unless you are in "Cake is Real" or "MVP"

I think most people think the biggest problem with the game at the moment is population not what rule set the server is, over the last 3 weeks I have noticed a large drop off in the number of people playing and I think until we get some new content this trend will only continue and a lot probably will never come back

Id even be happy to go back to The Harbinger if it meant we had more people to play with

I completely support this as well. The PVP'ers will benefit from more frequent pops and more players to compete against. Open world PVP on all servers would thrive from an increased number of willing participants. RP'ers can continue to RP with RP guilds and channels.

And I'm sure many players who have let their subscriptions run out would resub to experience the new merged server.

I also volunteer to spend 3-4 hours a day helping encourage people to NOT troll any Roleplayers that reside on a combined server.
The problem connecting to Dalborra was fixed about 3 weeks ago (for everyone as fas a I know) I no longer need to use WTFast to logon and everything seems to have gone back to normal

One item you seem to be forgetting. Name changes.

For most RPers name changes are an anathema.

Might want to throw that into your considerations.

Yeah unfortnately name changes are inevitable - but when I moved my 5 characters from The Harbinger over I only had 1 conflict and that was easy to get around - so not the biggest game breaker and after all wouldnt you much rather have more people to play with?

Hello from Europe.
Just looked at this post out of curiosity really. But having read it, I feel that EU and you Aussies are in the same boat. Dedicated local server farms and customer services for a dwindling population.
The cynic in me doesnt hold much hope of a server merge for you guys,I think that pretty soon, the nxt announcement will be free server transfers for you to US servers and server migration to the US server farms for all EU servers. EA/BW are looking to maximise profit and by closing down the overseas operations will save them lots of cash.Plus, if they then sell on said farms they can recoup more money. Sounds brutal but I bet u its under discussion. Turbine did it with LOTRO and EA/BW seem to be following a similar path.
