Hi everyone ,
You problably know me for my rants about merging servers already but here is another rant but with a bit more juice added to it.
I've seen lately that a lot of people from older servers are complaining that oasis prioritises mid age servers and not their server . Well why is oasis prioritising those servers over yours have you ever thought of that ? One of the persons complaining (won't name him) said his server has "only" active groups ( i checked the server out seems of the groups even has 1500 activity ...) and "only" 40 people take part in sage world , now with such numbers do you really expect your server needing a merge? i mean c'mon there are servers like mine who never get sage world more than 1 time per week and even when we do it's because of alt accounts not because the server is very active on that particular day ( yes more active than the use of 5-6 alt accounts gets us into sage but that doesn't seem like an accomplishment) . You know how many people plunder on my server? a total of 2 people sometimes 3 because there aren't enough people to plunder and those who plunder sometimes risk to end up with only 2 SS plunders because the number of people on the server is a joke. Not to mention matsuri where only the top 3 players get to finish 5 wins and that because of alt accounts .Anyway i shouldn't be talking about my own server here but i went and did it again because i'm so salty for missing another sage world.
Ok now to explain why a dead server needs merge much more than an active older server . By missing sage world , plunders , matsuri the dead server falls behind in resources compared to the servers near them ( for exemple my server and the server who started 2 day before mine , my top 10 player has 20k power and their top 10 player has 28k power which is the power of the top 2 on my server and no their top 10 isn't a casher while my top 2 is ) and when the eventual merge( yes it will happen sooner or later) happens with the servers near them ( we saw recently how servers get merged only with server who started close in date of release not actual power compatibility ) they would fall from being a top 2-3 on their server top 15-20 which means all the money they put it to maintain a top spot on the server would go to waste just because they were unlucky to start on a server who died prematurely.
To list what players from my server for exemple lose per week because they can't attempt certain events and why it gets us more behind every week.
- the top 3 in sage world lose 30 advanced refines and seal scroll because 2 sage worlds don't take place per week ( not sure what the others get who aren't top of their sage world team ) as well as a bunch of points for the shop
- the winning team in sage world loses low refines , 2 summon scrolls per sage world missed , points for summon shop not sure what else because i haven't seen sage world in a while.
- 120 coupons per day because no plunders
- seal scrolls and shop points because no matsuri
and the list goes on
Now taking all of this into account you will see that a gap that gets wider every week happens btw the dead server and the normal servers near them and the more the merge gets delayed the weaker the people on the dead server get compared to their peers on a normal server and the eventual merge would just make them quit because they won't be relevant by the time the merge happens.
I suggest merge should be based on power and how dead a server currently is and not on how old and how near each others the server are. I know i'm sounding selfish because i care more about my situation than the situations of older server but let's face it when your server has more than 2 groups in GNW and gets sage world every day you shouldn't be complaining about merge because u have no competition on your server some servers can't take part in events and you are crying about competition.
