Server Merge Alternative?
Totally forgot to clean that up. I meant to the truth from the populace. You're right.
It does indicate the server population in comparison to other servers. OBVIOUSLY the more populated the server the more active it is.
Look NA is never going to do a server merge, we've been clamoring for it for years. They don't have the resources (or brains) to do it so at the very least they could do is attempt to slow the atrophy of other servers. (They could do that by not vomiting gacha content all of the time, but we know that's not going to happen). Basically and most bluntly, we need to stop people from going to Alexina all of the time. Nothing against that server but you know that server has been the bane of "activity" on other servers for years.
Yes that is a good idea. Just list the servers randomly in a list that players can select from. I mean if they have questions about what server to join they are going to end up in the forums or the discord channel anyway.
It was necessary at the time, since all servers had problems with all their channels getting full. Plus they had a big influx of new players that wanted somewhere to go where they didn't have to compete with older players.
No they say stupid things like it's never been discussed and constantly feign ignorance on the issue. Which is a lie especially after all these years we've been screaming about it. Twice on streams they have stated it's never been brought up. Pure bs. But I get it, they are under a NDA.
I am sorry to the mabinogi staff to have to say this, but we're not stupid. You're not stupid. Some kind of statement should be made concerning this matter. Something. Anything. C'mon. O_o
On another note~ I'll just beat the usual dead horse and toss my 2 cents of wanting an International trade house/feature across all servers. I got 2 much money and not enuf suppliers of guds I'd rather care to spend it on.
Well, she has some hotness factor. And she resides in a hot area.
Also the potential problem with just removing the server population and shuffling them is that there isn't exactly a huge stream of new players coming in, so the trickle of new players spread over four servers semi-equally might not even serve as an adequate band-aid. Not that I have any alternative solutions.
Yep the Sabina regime has been completely nullified. Kek. =P
To achieve this, you'd basically have to merge the servers anyway; one server with like 28 channels say. To the end user it could be made to appear to be 4 servers with 7 channels each, but it wouldn't be. My understanding is that character names can be reused as long as they are on different servers; likely then there will be repeats. So, first everyone's character will have to have a new field added to distinguish these characters. That's fine in fact it can remain a hidden field. Probably it would just contain the name of the server they presently inhabit. To make the merge though all server dependent effects on the game world would have to be discontinued before the merge could occur. So first, farm fields in Tailteann would have to stop being sold. Guild stones would have to be removed. Guild castles and their neighborhoods removed. Basically all these things would have to return to their default state when they were first introduced into the game. The biggest change would be that with one big server there would only be 4 guild castles not 16.
Wow dude... Too much wasted money in my opinion... xD I couldn't do such thing.
I am afraid to look at mine. I won't. >_<
I highly doubt it at this point, but it's possible they are waiting for Ruairi and Tarlach to get critically low before considering a server merge.
Why do you think there'd be overwhelming lag or log-on waitlists?
If some servers got merged, the merged server wouldn't be the size of one of our current servers.
And since no server is bursting at the seams by themselves., even Alexina, I don't understand how it would cause such things to add two or more together.
I'm working on the assumption that a merged server would have more channels and player capacity than non-merged ones did by themselves. (because that's how the previous examples went, and I'd hope they wouldn't shaft US in such a regard)
Come to think of it, looking at some of the KR servers, I get the biggest case of channel-envy!
7 seems so small all of a sudden.
I’m not really sure why people are falling in for this myth where we would end up getting more lag if we get the merged servers and such... I mean yeah, the market would be unstable for first week or so but it all will go back to normal and the one market channel may get filled up much more quickly but eh.. who said you can’t have two or three market channels? lol
And lets see.. considering Alexina server is most populated out of all four servers and Alexina server doesn’t even need 7 channels because we don’t have enough active players to fill up the 7 channels for Alexina server... so if we was to see all four servers (at this point, Nexon would be dumb to only merge two servers into one and leaving other two servers dead so it is ideal to merge all four servers) be merged into one, having 15 channels would be more than enough for everyone to play in.
