And for those that are saying that some nodes were uncontested, given how buggy shit was and the testing phase going through with it +the almost unnanounced shift in timing , screwing up some schedules+ some guilds actually sitting out till shit is fixed + some guild missing out due to the schedule change, I highly doubt the uncontested node was due to lack of population but more of just test stuff.

 

I don't recommend server merging now anyway.

Merging into one mega-server would really only overpopulate the server (and yes, I read the bit about channels, it still would overpopulate the server as a whole, more channels doesn't translate into more nodes to win in war) and cause massive lag (they already have massive lag issues with the servers the way they are)

Not everyone is supposed to have a node m8

In three more months someone newer than yourself will also want a new server..

And three months after that..

And three months after that..

It's totally normal to want to restart the game now that you know what you are doing, but the answer is probably no.

Merge Croxus & Alustin and leave Jordine alone. Even then Jordine still had more people.

Merge all servers on EU together to make a megaserver

 

You just want to create some Federalist EU superserver, ruled by diktat from Brussels, don't you? You realize that the British players would just vote to leave that server, right?

there are only 3 god dam U.S servers and a bunch of shards per server wtf you smoking

merger = death in sandbox games

forced restarts = death in sandbox games

B.D is not the next 8 mill player game most of the new gen of gamers flock from one to the next

 

been through 5 server mergers in mmo games in the last 10 years and it always ends up the same, it doesn't solve the issue people like you complained about for the merger to take place in the first place

 

top that off the servers cant even handle the load they have at the moment and you want more lol FACEPALM X1MILL I CRIT MAX DAMAGE ECT ECT ECT :)

Where did you read "forced" restart? Fresh start servers are optional chose in all games where publishers do it. Not o-or connection. Start new character in fresh server doesn't affect your old characters and old servers.

I "vote":

Merge: no

New fresh start server: ok/yes

Perhaps a merge is not nessesary yet, but the competition for the nodes seems very limited at the moment on Croxus. Ultimately you do not want to end up fighting against the same guilds over and over for the rest of eternity, currently there are maximum 10 competetive guilds. With the Valencia patch there will be 5 territories total to fight for. Unless smaller guilds are going to form alliances, I do not expect enough competition and dynamic battles. For now, that will probaly still be good enough for several months to come. But I think it is rather a question of when not if. I have seen alot of ''free'' notes so far, where there were no contesters at all. This even counts for some t3 nodes. But lets not forget that we still are on a test period, who knows things might turn out differently.

Merge? Sure, more people to play against?

Fresh server? BDO is not a dying milked-cow yet like archeage. Terrible idea.

Fresh start is not "cheat the death" tactic only. Fresh servers and new games can offer to players fast development/upgrades, competitive environment and big playersbase. BDO had good chances, just siege delays, static/stucked enchant and upgrade caps killed the power of active gamers community in "old" servers. New start or new good(!) game = more fun.

Ok some of us are "ladder"/season fanatics like me. This is the legacy of D2 LoD maybe. Or starcraft thing. :D

What? So what's better about 3 half empty servers than 1 server with high population & lots of compettition?

Atleast admit that you're just a scrub who wants free nodes

So if they release a server transfer tickted would that not solve all the issue's. People who want a solo game and less competition can join a low populated server. And for those that do want a competitive game can join the most populated server. So no merges needed and you give people the option to switch if they would desire to do so.

My server is packed, last I checked no nodes are uncontested and competition is pretty fierce.

You're welcome to cram your attitude up your ass btw.

We haven't even looked at node wars yet, choosing to let y'all beta test for us. Cheers though. We'll get there some day. (From Jordine)
