uuuuuuummmmmmmmmmmmmm Most of us have played Korea.Your logic and point are both FUBAR. This "test" is irrelevant and bad idea.

 

These servers are quite different from Kr. Kr originally proved servers aren't the proper way to go due to dying off fan base and server population dwindling. You can't show any logic behind your argument for against it....

I find the actual number of channels to be liquid, i.e. they can be increased/decreased with little fanfare.

Actual number of servers is a more difficult nut to crack in my opinion.

But I suppose I could be wrong on this. =)

So when one of these 3 servers of yours will depopulate, people will stuck with 5 other people and wait for mercifully merge from devs?

Nah less servers = better

Don't listen to the trolls. I like the way the servers work. Let's at very least test it before judging it... 

we did test it was cbt2 did u miss it there was a massive lack of pvp and the server lag lead to unresponsive pvp ?__? or did you not make it past lvl 45

I see a lot of people asking/commenting about servers being PvP and PvE. I'm not sure they understand how this game works. EVERY server is PvP and that's kind of the End Game for this game.

I just really hope we get names soon I have friends, previous guild members scattered all over the place that plan to play this game and I want to try to not only coordinate with us all to get on the same server, but to also get on a decent server with some of the big guilds.

My goal is heavy end game GvG PvP :)    ....that is if I can ever decide between Warrior or Berserker lol.

9 channels for release seems sensible to me. So much grinding competiton on launch.. As the demand lowers in the coming weeks, close them off. Make them dynamic and in 6 months have 3/4 open channels.

 

If they only did 2 servers with 4, you'd all be sat here moaning about mob respawn problems.

This server setup seems fine enough for me,now hopefully they will keep the server names like they were in CBT2 ,there aren't too many servers and there isn't only one ,stacking everyone in a single server could cause ping issues for either NA or EU no ?
So yeah,glad they made it like this 2 servers for EU ,2 for NA.

As for the ammount of channels I can't tell because I don't know how many of the players that pre-ordered the first pack actually were in CBT2 ,no idea where do people get this info to speculate on how things will go

Lol another post showing no logic. Your parents must be proud

Agreed. Most people posting are thinking along the lines of a month down the road when everyone is geared aan seige are going to be underway. 

 

What people don't get is everything current is subject to change.

I would hope that the game would be successful enough to at least sustain 1x1 and not be a ghost town.

But I will agree that by that point it would make more sense to just go 1x3 and save money on the hardware fees.

But I do concede to your point that as long as the hardware can handle it that less is better.

 

Wish that games haven't gotten to the point where we have become so jaded (myself included) that we expect such a massive drop in player population after the initial release window. =/

You should learn to structure a structure a sentence first. Then you might have a chance of setting up a coherent argument. Then someone might take your insults seriously instead of as more jokes to share with their friends. Tell me more how KR figured out servers were bad for the game.

Bad idea , Austin was full , but Jordine had few users , compared to the first server ... Have you not noticed? In the EUROPE I think we prefer a mega server.
 
Jordine server was dead.

Cool good call.

Might want to release server names beforehand so people can plan accordingly.

You should also let the people you're debating against discredit you instead of doing them a favor and doing it to yourself.

Let's consider how they went from having servers when they first started to they dying off in population to them needing a fix. Xfers? Merges? They tried mega server. We on NA are trying something differently than them currently. QQ about it more. Noone said they are here to stay. If they don't work out they will fix them lmao

You seem to want to find a reason for this to fail no matter what.

Many people keep asking us about the server structure at release and by now we are comfortable enough, that our planned structure will go live as described below, to share it with you.

Initial setup will be similar to CBT2.

We will have two Servers for each region. (2xEU, 2xNA)

Each server will have 9 channels.

Server names are not finalized and will be announced soon.

 

Did Auction House will be cross-serwer or separated to own serwers.

Thinking lvl 50 = end game, this statement immediately invalidates anything you say from here on.

I'm pretty sure majority of the "Channels" will be overflow and not static.  It's a lot easier to increase/decrease channel availability as needed than additional servers. I for one would much rather have less servers and more channels because as we all know MMORPGs evolve over time and server capacity will always ebb and flow. Channels just keep things more fluid and feeling populated as opposed to several semi-empty servers you can't do anything about without uprooting/displacing communities.

Personally I'm a fan of one huge mega server because I hate when I get friends scattered among other servers. This is an adequate compromise for me.  Now I just need names so I can start coordinating with friend/guilds :)

Who said 50 is endgame. I clearly said cbt isn't about hitting endgame. I never said it isn't about hitting soft cap.
