    Can we have some server merge so more people can be active? I'm pretty sure Alexina don't need to be touch since it super popular but the others need to merge into one or have all the less people in that severer to be merge all together. So it can be just two server or three.

    "Can we have server merge, but Alexina doesn't need it, it's popular anyway"

    Lmao.

    Literally everyone hating on alexina.
    I mean just read this whole thread. Nothing but hate lol

    How about we merge user accounts with Maple Story? Anyone with lots of progress in one game gets a roughly equivalent progress in the other game.

    it's a game merge.

    Well that adds a new level of complexity to something no-one even wants to touch anyway, lol.

    Plus game progress is ridiculously arbitrary.

    We should really just do some free advertising post videos Facebook as much as we can to get people to play mabinogi because simply merging servers is not going to revitalize the game more just delay the drop off of players but if we can get more new players to play and we support the new players it should get better this game is very unique and I've played countless MMORPGs

    You know, now that I think about it... free advertising is always a great idea.
    MMO Junkie had a "Blink and you'll miss it" poster for Mabinogi.
    A tragic fate for a collab, but it's probably something that works with whatever copyright laws JP has.
    I'm just not sure where else Nexon might post such adverts, other than official anime websites such as Funimation or Crunchyroll.
    If there was something like a giant event that's popular and new enough to land Mabinogi on Twitter gaming moments, then maybe we could see a bit of interest.
    Otherwise, we'd need an entire combat system revamp with additional setting options. (It can be rather old and clunky at times.)
    Something like a new PvP system that doesn't involve the guilds, or outdated arenas. Something with new mechanisms as well.
    Mabinogi just isn't as popular as it used to be, and gachapons continue to gather controversy or disdain.

    This isn't even a question. Just merge every server into one. Mabi (Erinn) is huge. with such a small population+the large size of the game world, you no longer see other players anywhere you go.

    In the case of a merge, Now that there's an auction house you dont have to worry about stall space, people will just use Dunbarton and stuff alongside Belvast if they do want to stall.

    in MMOs you want to meet new friends and go on fresh adventures, on Mari you only see the same dozen people and the server is so tiny that everyone knows each other on a first name basis. I like them but it doesn't make Mabinogi feel like a vibrant bustling world like it should.

    At the least, merge every server besides Alexina into 1. but I think it's time to just merge ALL the servers. accept that this is a very old game with a very dedicated fanbase. Nexon can keep us and keep getting our money if they provide a good game atmosphere. Ghost towns arent a good game atmosphere.

    Oh it's coming all right; I'm pretty sure of it. You have the auction house as you say. The guild castles are being phased out. The guild battles take place on "Channel 20". We had that thread recently "just for fun" (wink wink) about a server merge. It's coming.

    I just had another thought. When (I'm not gonna be subtle about it anymore) the server merge happens, they will have to adjust the formula for how commerce prices are effected by trading. With everyone on the same server those prices will drop even faster than they do on Alexina.

    Not if Nexon is smart enough to stabilize stock/demand.
    (I mean, considering how rigged Gachapons are, they likely will be able to balance commerce.)
    It's just a matter of if they want to make it stable, or leave it like it is for the next four to five years. (As always.)

    How would they stabilize stock/demand so that prices will not drop even faster than they do on Alexina without adjusting the formula for how commerce prices are effected by trading?

    It's called a Stock Market. Any fantasy closet nerd with a degree in commerce and trade would know the formula to answer this.
    (Basic math, only more statistical and with more math within the math.)
    Essentially, more new coding. Maybe additional commerce features as well.

    Isn't that basically the same thing?

    If they give name priority to anyone, it might be whoever had the name first, amongst all the servers. (IE- Veteran 1st Anniversary or CBT vs 8th Anniversary.)

    I agree with the suggestion of just having 'previous server' be a toggle-view stamp in the text above the character.

    You don't know this. -- It's just another assumption. -- It's been talked about time and time again for 12 stinking years, and there's still no reason in the world why same name characters cannot coexist on the same server (just like equips, mobs and npcs do all day long). As stated in the previous forum, the server name can be amended to chat, guild, and on hover when holding alt; instead of stinking up the name / title line (so people know who each other are). ~ There is no reason aside from absolutely laziness to make people fight over their names. Not to mention some of us having same name characters on all of the 4 servers (like myself; Hardmuscle on all 4).

    Well exactly! For all four Hardmuscles to have what would amount to be the funniest group PvP ever to occur would literally require (given four servers) adding as little as 2 bits to the size of each characters record. You're totally right, name collisions are just not gonna be a problem.

    I just had an epiphany! Here's how they'll deal with the name thing. Yes they will add a hidden field to each of our records to denote original server. Visually they'll add a coin to our title sequence representing the original server. Buda BING!
