MEGASERVER COMPROMISE

PvX Playstyles & Channels

 

Hey guys! Happy Thanksgiving to people in the States! Right now we got a lot of good changes in the Dev Diary, but one of the biggest sources of debate is the possibility of a megaserver. Right now people are worried that it'll lead to problems -- and personally I don't like the idea of only a couple of massive guilds owning cities all the time due to sheer size -- but maybe a compromise can be struck with play styles.

 

Using different styles of play per channel might allow people to have the best of both worlds while not abandoning one shard for another simply because a PvP duel or siege isn't working out for them.

Well, this poll is not about multiple server vs megaserver. This poll is about megaserver. In games where megaserver is thrown around as a possibility, it's almost always used -- I don't necessarily agree with it in this scenario because guilds getting so big and then only a couple of guilds being able to control areas is really silly to me. Which is why I want to focus on MEGASERVER here and discuss how it has to be implemented if it is at all.

It does sound like regular servers with the channel options -- but that's the point. Otherwise you have PvPers skipping out on fights by switching and then trying to run amock on other channels, or guilds being able to flip around to channels and take control of areas based on which channel isn't getting as much action that day. There HAS to be some kind of compromise with how channel settings work otherwise it's going to be so abused.

So while I'd rather see specific servers and playstyles implemented that way, I wanted to use this for discussion in case PA is full steam ahead on megaserver.

NO for server or channel PvE or PvP/PK without karma.

this is just plain stupid topic... not even worth doing it, then I would rather have multiserver instead of megaserver

If ENDGAME is dead in kr is because there is low population.

 

A megaserver will kill the endgame content

how will this be different than a multi-server option? I mean, won't players who want to pvp / pve just stay on the channels dedicated to those?
