Combining the game servers
Greetings fellow riders and today i have something people have been talking about a lot. This of course is combining the games servers, The purpose of this would to be expanding the players on any given server so things are more populated. So below ill be listing my own personal thoughts and the Pro's and Con's of this idea so people will have a bit more to base their opinions off of.
-The Servers will seem more populated with more people for instances
-People can have more active guilds and competition for world bosses
-There will be more people to sell and buy things on auction
-More people talking and sharing ideas for new content
-More people to level with when new content comes out
-ManaStone battles will have more players
-Real competition for the new mounts in rift
-Guilds with the same names will have do to something?
-More Gold sellers in the party board
-It might be to populated and hard to get new heroic mounts
-ManaStone battles will seem a lot more unwinnable
-Less geared people will be excluded because the Geared Players will be more common
-Dungeon Gear could drop in price because quantity would go up
-Prices for things on servers that are diffrent would suddenly all be put into the same auction and therefore some people might have to find new ways to make money
Really not sure if its good or bad
-Prices of some items [i.e Familiar Orbs] could inflate or deflate
-more people would be able to buy all the good auction gear
-Good legendary gear could become more common and therefore worth less depending on demand
Now i just want to talk about my own perspective on this matter. As an avid player i really do think we need to combine/migrate some players servers. Its really not going to work for whole servers and it isn't a long term solution to people leaving the game, but if a guild or just some people from the forums want to leave their server to find a more populated one, i think this should be allowed via support ticket or just in game options. this said it could very well cause in game issues with the auction. I think if they were to do this instead of auction items transferring you would have to remove them before switching servers. While this wouldn't be optima for everyone,l it could help to not crash the auction value of some items and that really is a big concern of this whole ordeal.
While i do know this isn't going to be a long term solution to players leaving, No one can deny that the game is dying and slowly loosing its player base. I'm certainly curious to what the other members of the community think about this, However as to my own server [Hakain] We're loosing players and it really isn't a whole lot of fun without a group to run some dungeons. Simply making the opportunity to find another, more populated server, would really help some players gear and keep them playing until the new patches come out.
