Well that is silly considering you have a good opportunity to have a community from scratch, no need to splinter it, because of no good reason at all, there are no downsides to having 10-20 characters at max level, they can help, guide, tutor the new ones, help on the wiki etc etc, there is really no downside to it other than "Oh i am just being silly"
Um, the downside is that new players probably would want to start on a new server with a fresh economy. I personally would like to be one of the people setting the market prices for high end goods by leveling up my DoL/DoH classes first. That really isn't possible if we're all on a legacy server. Plus, a lot of people just want the fresh experience, and being on a server where the majority of players are already level 50 wouldn't allow that.
Why not just have the legacy players have a LS on a legacy server, and the "new" players have an LS on a new player server? Nothing is stopping anyone from making a character on a legacy server if they want the help from level 50's, and nothing is stopping legacy players from making a new character and joining the new player LS.
And Duo, I also agree with everything you said. Great post, rate up from me. Edited, Jun 6th 2013 10:02am by BartelX
