The Inevitable Merge
This was going to happen sooner or later regardless if we wanted it or not and there is two core issues that lead us here as well as accelerated this merge, the first one being the decreasing playerbase and we don't have to look far for proof, just 7 years ago there was not only a larger playerbase but also more people running around playing the game and the game felt generally more alive then it is today (or at least as of writing this).
Mabinogi NA needs more players and fast, we need trailers showing of the game and what it's all about, we need to see banners and advertisements for Mabinogi NA, basically we need new people to find and play Mabinogi NA.
The second issue is how Nexon accelerated this merge, for people not aware we had 4 servers/channels or whatever you want to call them, when the first merge back in 2019 was announced most people expected that the only logical conclusion would be to take the 4 servers and merge each 2 together (that's the short explanation), however what Nexon did was take 3 of the lower populated servers and merge them together under a new name (Nao) and leave one to eventually stagnate (Alexina), people in the slowly stagnating server was noticing the reinvigorated and merged server and some started to jump ship further expediting the stagnation (it's not the players fault).
Nexon messed up...again and as I once wrote in this forum, it's like Nexon is just waiting for this game to lose just enough players and general activity to be able to justify the shutdown of Mabinogi NA, however I am not saying a shutdown is right around the corner but it sure does feel like nobody at Nexon NA or otherwise is trying even the minimum to bring in new players.
Just look at this forum, there used to be so much more activity, if the old forum was still around one could even compare the two and see the stark difference.
With all of this said and done, I hope for the sake of this games health and longevity that Nexon NA or anybody able to do something about this does something about Mabinogi NA's decreasing playerbase, cause if it took about 3 years for the need of another merge I don't want to imagine what might happen in another 3 years from now.
Thanks for reading.
