    their wouldn't need to be server merges if the game just kept up with the "interests" of the players...
    instead of stressful limited time nx items, and afk events.... that surely alone put enough players to realize how un-enjoyable the game is :T
    etc etc etc etc. >:)

    Can we stop making same threads about merging servers over and over again? Just go to current thread in Feedback and Suggestions section and discuss it there.
    I suggest a thread merge now. :|

    Just because there are channels that don't say FULL 24/7 doesn't mean a server merge is absolutely needed.

    We say this time and time again every time this thread comes but now it's gotten to a point where we just expect it every couple of months. You'd think we'd get some sort of assurance or at least a scolding or 'something' about server merges from somebody with authority. :V

    Also, about the server merge thing, I'd only be for it if none of my items get deleted or altered. And I mean none. And I don't want to have to change my name if I don't want to, either. (But I bet there will have to be name changes if a merge happens.)

    100% this. This is the main reason why people don't want server merges. They don't want to lose everything they own simply to see more people running around or afking.
    Honestly if they deleted all your stuff you can expect this game's population to flatline, and at that point you might as well remake the engine/game.

    Why would a merger of all things cause people to lose anything though? I don't really get the logic behind that assumption.

    Sometimes Nexon doesn't make sense. Just saying.

    Simple. We merge the servers, and some people's data's get messed up, people's banks get messed up, someone's inventory got rolled back a lot or even wiped, and before you can say spaghetti and meatballs, you got big angry threads screaming about "I LOST ALL MY STUFF I SPENT HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS ON!" If server merges were an easy thing that could be done within 12 hours, I feel Mabinogi would have already done it. I don't have any hard evidence or proof to show you in statistics or anything like that, but I have a huge feeling if a server merge happens, something bad might happen like people's data's getting lost or tainted. :(

    I remember in another thread, buried in the countless dozens of other server merge threads, that people would have to move all their items into pets before going to another server, based on what KR's server changing ticket thing did..? I would find that thread again but I don't know where it is now.

    Now, we call that as 'selfish' people.

    Though, I think they won't do merge anyways because it's just 'too much work' to consider for Nexon America.

    You are half right...the only thing that was lost in the other regions merges was mailboxes. Just mail...nothing else would be lost.

    I wonder how it got exaggerated into these wild tales of losing everything in the bank or losing stuff on pets then if the only thing lost in other region mergers was the mailboxes. It's also a shame that these baseless wild exaggerations are keeping people from accepting the idea of a server merger.

    If I had half the willpower I used to I'd post more often to alleviate some of the misconceptions like I used to~~

    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

    Setting up four servers in the same city was bad in the first place. This game needs either one big server, or a few spread throughout the whole world (East, West, EU for example). Although I don't know which option is less likely to happen.

    No. That's what they did with Vindictus. Worst idea ever. And so was opening up Alexina.
