    Merge all but Alexina, cut down the channels in new server (I petition to call it Ferghus) and Alexina down to 3.
    There you go, a fresh trimmed beard.

    Every time this thread appears I normally post some uncooperative spiel about being Eralea on all four servers and merging names, but this time I'll support the Ferghus server petition

    That's what I said, you know what kind of seizure inducing headache that would cause our staff? Think about it. FOUR times the NAMES to resolve! It would be utter chaos. Which is why we always concluded, it could only be done with 2 servers at a time.

    We would basically go back to having 3 servers of the 3 heroes (Mari, Ruairi, Tarlach). Merge Tarlach with Ruairi like some kinky doujinshi everyone has always wanted to see. Rename Alexina to Tarlach. There you go, the 3 heroes, just as should of remained.

    Goodbye Alexina. huhuhuhuhuhuhuhuhu...

    ;)

    Nope you guys get to be Ferghus, and your merged server fix will be as terrible and broken as Ferghus's repairs.

    And then people will start complaining about the merge instead of demanding a merge.

    It will be glorious to watch

    Yeah I guess there used to be two BUSY channels alongside channel 1 a few years ago, but it may very well be that the channel population thing being broken by marking channel 1 forever FULL might involve the other channels somehow. Or population dips, I dunno ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    The cringe!

    Yeah I would like to meet up with you guys too. I just wish there was a way to visit other servers with your main. You know, they could make it "Gaea (of Ruairi)". They could even make it so it's not possible to conduct business there or do events. You can hang out, help out in dungeons, quests, ext. To make it simple, the only things you would have access to is a basic inventory and gear, but you would retain your stats. Then when all is said and done you can return to your server where you have everything.

    Just a thought. Heck they could even market it as buying a "travel ticket" of sorts. But they would have to make it relatively cheap to encourage visitations.

    I think thats called making an alt account XD.

    I'd like to meet more potential friends. So yeah I'd like that, as long as nothing gets screwed up or lost in the process.
    I mean look at the candy tree event. Everyone wanted it to come back, and the only thing people have been getting are seeds. Which can be helpful for people leveling up their homesteads, sure, but what about everyone that wanted props like cherry trees or other things? Or wanted the fishing event. I haven't even been gathering all my jars anymore, and I get double with my butler. Just enough to get my coupon, do my stamp quest for the day, and then I get off.
    Yeah, I thought it was weird. I remember getting a lot less seeds and more hs items and stuff.

    I don't like how you decide it's impossible without hearing anything being said from them. (Unless of course they've stated a specific reason from an official. )

    But that's no fun, you are completely starting from scratch. At least you would still have all your skills.

    We should be discussing ways to resolve duplicate names across servers. Server merge is never gonna happen unless this is solved first.

    If a Server Merge occurs, its not an Issue of Losing Gubs, its the character/pet names. Since there's characters/pets on each server with the exact same name

    I'm not even sure why you people are worrying about or attempting to create a solution for an issue which doesn't even exist in the first place. Given other foreign servers for this game such as Korea have already done server mergers just fine. So the solution has already been found way before you ever started worrying about it.

    Apparently the solution was something along the lines of people getting their original server names above their usernames and guild names. So as a result duplicate names were fully possible and there weren't any issues.

    From what I know, when a server merge happens in KR/JP, whoever log in first basically get to keep their name while the rest have to go to a special page to set their new username... very easy solution too.

    You can try adding other players with same IGN on other three servers and they'll likely to be inactive so you don't have anything to worry about it, really.
