    This idea would limit play and drive away many free players as well as small cashers. This would cause major issues of to many players on 1 server and make it almost impossible for some to compete and enjoy the game. I can see need for some mergers, but so many servers into one is not a good idea unless object is to drive off players.

    I'm confused... why is group s64 excluding the actual server s64? Wouldn't that one be called group s72?

    not a good idea to merge so many servers together at the same time, I oppose this idea.

    I dont know that large merges would be bad but I dont think you can just merge blocks of server numbers. You would need to look at overall server BP and probably other factors. So that way the servers are merged with similar level servers. Otherwise as stated above you will just drive new and free players away. If they dont feel they can get ahead in the game then they will not spend time let alone money on the effort.

    yes... thats why I asked the 2nd question, it does't make sense to call s72-s77 s64 considering all other groups are named after the lowest servernumber

    :eek: this definitely not a good idea we have been merged with 2 servers already and have lost numerous nonvip and low level bp players with last merge. the low level players and nonvip feel they cannot compete with the higher level bps and vip players and quit due to frustration. I believe we would loose even more players if we are merged with older servers.

    Because this question doesn't really provide any details, people are reacting as if you might merge them in haphazardly, with no regard to server levels or BP or outliers like top paying players. If you have a careful plan, that takes place over 3-4 months and ends up in this merge state, that would be one thing. If you plan a single, splash-in maintenance and we come back and there are 10x as many players, and nobody has time to figure out who is who, then I suspect it would go badly.

    tl;dr: tell us more details of the plan before you ask us to vote on the plan.

    I'm not sure that I understand the question. Being s64, I understand that I am technically s53 because of our previous merge. But is the question at hand "Which group would you like to be merged into?" or is it "What do you think of the idea of combining these groups?" The way I'm looking at it is this: On the one hand, you're grouping s30-s55, which is 25 servers. That's a hell of a merge in itself. But on the other hand, you're also saying that you want to take this 25 server merge and further merge it into another group of 10-30 servers. So I really need you to elaborate what it is you're actually trying to accomplish here. It is my personal opinion that if you were to do a mass merge like this, you would need to start with that initial group, and that shouldn't be done overnight, it should be done over time - by groups of 5 or so, give a month for adjustments to be made and people to get to know each other, then combine the groups. So for instance, with the 30-55 group, merge together 30-35 (group A), 36-40 (group B), 41-45 group C), 46-50 (group D), 51-55 (group E). Then wait a month, and merge groups A, B, and C together, and D and E together, and in another month merge them fully, thus making one super server. Then wait and see how that goes before you further merge it into another super server. Please give us more details into what YOUR thoughts are on this, what you are thinking about doing. Until then, I cannot vote.

    i don't fully understand, the question is to merging whole server groups together?
    if so, that's probably the worst idea and i see why ppl would freak out about that

    I do not understand the reason of this poll; if you're interested in our comfort, imho, you should
    1) monitor how every server is doing, and I hope you are already doing this
    2) take into due account any players' request about the need of a merge, as you are doing
    3) merge so that every server involved gets better than before, as you are doing, for what I have read so far on forum.

    Why do you need to change all this?

    I fully agree with what Mia has stated...at this time we really don't need mass mergers
    and going by the above comments...most people do not want or need it just now

    Guys, please consider merges in the pretty similar format as this :
    1-5,6-10,11-15 and so on to ensure that servers average level and stats pretty the same and people can have competition.
