Merging of servers?Follow

Asking to many questions lol, but want to get it out of my system.

Would it be worth while to merge servers in order to keep game play alive? I know many people are going to quit after 1.2 comes out due to having to pay for the game. I assume PL is going to be taken out so there will be more grind parties. With that said, you are going to need population up in order to find those parties, otherwise its leves all the time.

There hasn't been anything mentioned at all about PLing being removed. If there has been post a link to your source so I can read it. I'd be curious to what else I've missed. :) When it comes to server merging, I haven't really noticed any problems with populations being so low. This is probably due to me being on one of the supposedly "most" populated servers. The best thing to do when battling a low population is to join a LS with fairly active members. You'll always have someone to hang out with and party.

Haha, maybe I did not look at it that way. In that aspect it makes a little sense then.

Wasn't there something about letting the people at 2.0 choose whether they want to be on an empty server so they could build it up themselves rather than having it already dominated by level 50s?

Truth be told, i think when things go p2p people should get the option to servers jump every 3 months until 2.0. Simple point that people on more lively servers may stick around longer then people on servers were there's more tumbleweeds then people.

I'm not a huge fan of being able to move servers, I find it often leads to significant numbers of people abandoning servers for more popular ones, basically killing them. I think servers should be merged, but not for a while. Let 2.0 come out, see how that goes for a few months and then merge servers accordingly.

I am against the ability to change servers. If you wanna move servers make a new character. Just my 2 gil.

As far as merging servers... bad idea, imo. I chose the server I am on now back when the game first came out. I purposely chose a less populated server. Maybe servers with 1 chocobo merging to the 2 chocobo level is fine, but no need to make every server rate 3 chocobos. (Using the scale used on character selection screen in case someone is confused about the chocobos)

I would think merging servers would be kind of silly anyways at this point. Might as well wait for 2.0 and see how the launch goes and how the server population looks after 6 months, then decide if servers need any merging. Unless subscription fees run off that many people...which i really don't think it will. People may complain but I think most will still pay to play for the exclusive content and what not over the next 6~ months.
