merge servers (PLEASE)

Recommended Posts

Merging the servers will not increase the population significantly.

I've kept track of the numbers on both servers and if we merged we would have 50 or 60 more players on the single server.  It just won't make that much difference.

And it would be disappointing to lose players only because of a merge that just won't make any difference.

No they don't.   @chailang can you do the honors and show a screen shot of your ping or have one of your guys give example of how bad your ping is from GLOBAL vs EU server?  From the screen shots I seen these guys are playing with pings in the 600 range on average.  While our AUS guys are in the 200 range on GLOBAL. I get around 130-160 on EU (40-60 on GLOBAL).   Where is that post on pings and server location?  IF the average is about the same over all on GLOBAL location over the EU than it would be the better spot to pick for server location.  

EU server probably 400-500ping  ,After using SSR, I can drop to 300 ping

Personally I don't care if server will be located in Europe, US, Canada, Bermuda, Hawaii, Greenland of on the moon. 

Anyway, we got on PvP EU at least two Asian clans with Chinese players (EAR & CH) and I have a clan member playing from China (using VPN).

Most of China's VPN has been banned by the government ,I'm using SSR now.

But I still don't want to go to the EU server because it will lose packets (Request timed out

Fair enough.

Question, can your spot be taken by someone living in another continent or is it reserved ?

Honest question :)

For @Cornelis Tromp it is allways reserved. And he's not the only one who wants to sleep - My in-game nick is Lars Kjaer and I say: "Give players choices!"

If global is such a grand idea - then let the globals have their insomniac server. I for one have a job, an ugly mug that need its beauty sleep and a bladder that needs to go to the toilet ever so often in the middle of the night. #letpeoplesleepandletglobalbeglobalandtheEUserverbeEUserver!

The problem pre-wipe was the same as the problem on global atm. Ppl choose the factions they feel affiliated with - US and brits will rule the nightflips because the US and the brits has common language, history and cultural affinity. Regardless of the numbers that issue will persist wether there be 3k active players or 20 active players. I'm getting fed up with having to have the same discussions over and over again. If people want to go from the global server to the EU server - fine by me, but don't kill one server through merging in order to save another. If people want to play global - they can go for the global server and I'll be fine with that as well. I'd even have an account on the global was it not for the damn grinding of xp all over again.

I'm going to explain this. Again. Very slowly. So even globals as dimwitted as to pick up the same topic over and over again can understand it. Because apparently I have to repeat myself to people. Repeatedly. Over and over again.

Considering that servers were never merged, yea. You're missing player base from PvP Global. Danish nation is full of Asians and other players that will defend you when you sleep :)

And as has been explained on more occasions than I care to count it will make no difference. The "asian" population will join the factions they know or have an affiliation with and that means primarily the brits and the US. That the chinese has picked Denmark-Norway comes prob from the fact that unlike most other locations in the world the chinese has no experience with european colonialism. We've tried the nightflips - if they were so great why then is the global the server with the lowest pop numbers?

*sigh* Is that a Yes or a No ? 

I'm assuming you only lose sleep if your spot is reserved, if we going to play ping pong with assumptions answers.

And *sigh* why shall we have yet another discussion about the servermerge? - the issue is not being advanced one bit and what in the world is the problem with giving people choices regarding how they want to experience naval action? - how about sighing less and working on improving the community on global some more so people can actually stand playing on it?

 Instead of calling for a merge that will leave both (or the remaining server) as empty as the global - how about you go about and making the global server a community ppl will actually want to be part off? And btw - as far as I know only the global server is anywhere near having a hegemonic power structure (which is due to the very imbalance of players that will ensure that merging the servers won't work) so please stop advocating for the destruction of the one server that actually works - if we iron out a lot of the kinks that has nothing to do with RvR but a hell of a lot to do with a gamedesign that is flawed in its basics.

Merge the servers and create larger safe zones around each capitol so that all nations new players can start out trade build learn , do missions without the toxic ganking problem which has effectively killed the game. This game doent stand a chance unless its a worldwide game in all timezones with areas safe for new players to learn the game.

There is no point having 1 server, with different time zones, where you can capture enemies regions,while hes asleep.

Get over it.

I never been in a game that shuts down for one regions times cause a few folks want to sleep or work.  In real war you don't take tea time (actually they did my grandpa use to bitch about the Brits doing so in Africa when he was assigned to them) or wait until the sun is up.  You don't call your enemy and say I"m going to take you two days from now right after dinner time.   What they should do is set the lord commanders times again so and go with the war company thing.  So if a set of clans/war company fights only in EU prime time they can set there battle timers to that time. If they are SEA players they can set that time, if they are US players prime time than that zone. I seen folks request a short time you can't, but it shouldn't be a short time it should be a 4-6 hour window that can only have port battles in them.    Than you can protect it in your prime time.  Than if there is a clan that doesn't work in that prime time in your nation they can work to protect there ports/regions in there own prime time.  

I hear a lot of you say folks won't go to this or that nation. I play pirate, but started as US. I refuse to go back to US.  I have a played French, Spanish, Danish too (yah bet some of you had no clue of that) on PvP2 server and I been just about ever nation but Swedes on PvP1 (I have yet to set a nation on EU or PvE yet).   I would be more than happy to keep to pirate with my main and maybe roll with my clan to one of the other nations.   We hate (not really, but they hate us so we might as well) US and GB nations and love to kill them so we would have no problem being in a Nation that fights them during US prime time.  If any one has any clue what's going on Global I can assure you my clan are defiantly able to do port battles during those times.

Though if they where ever to do a merger I think it should wait until they go to beta and do another wipe of some type and do it properly  Than if they need to add more servers by release they can.

Thanks I know I seen some of your screens with spikes over 600 from some of your guys.  Even I get ping spikes on EU server for some odd reason.  The normal base ping isn't to bad over there and I can live with it, but it's those that kill it for me.

I'd like to see an equal playing field at least in timezones fighting. Fighting bigger pops in numbers AND timezones. 

So do I. So do we all. That is the truth. And the further we move away from that, the less likely and possible it is for us to see an equal playing field in timezones fighting.

Meaning, unless I completely misinterpret, equivalent population numbers across the factions in all timezones, so everyone can play and everyone can reserve a spot :)

The ping difference that you get between the EU and PvE server is very strange since they are in the same location.

I am ok if servers will be merged and server will be located outside of Europe, so all players can have decent ping.

In reality we should have 11 front lines at minimum (11x 2 hour timeslots + DT). More folks in one timeslot should mean another front line.

However current Clan & Nation mechanics are too rigid to allow for this to happen.

Agree. It is half-wishful thinking half-know that community will change. True, if two server options are up the newcomers will adapt :)

Funny how many gaming groups I've known that dismissed a string of clan vs clan games in the past due to rigid competition schedules. 

There are a lot of pros, especially at the "individual" level.

There are enough cons, including all the part of the community that doesn't have a fixed schedule to play the game that, due to circumstances, have to *sigh* and let it go.

Ain't only geographic :) age and household responsibilities also play a part but we enter the realm of personal priorities, that should never ever be even considered when planning a game schedule imo.

You have found an important distinction: pro gamer vs casual gamer.

pros ? barely sir.

Bearwall, thanks for exploding :)

That's an unbecoming way of trying to diminish an opponent rather than actually argue. I seldom agree completely with @Bearwall's arguments or wording, but there is nothing to warrant saying that his response was an explosion. His reply was measured, well structured, on topic, and on point, without any outbursts. The fact that his response is in 3 successive posts is in large part to blame on the IP Board forum software which makes it a hurdle to combine into one post responses to several comments spread out over several pages.

I think the question will remain unanswered.

When you ask a stupid or convoluted questions, you shouldn't expect a direct answer. It is well known to both of us that, no, there is no mechanic to reserve PB slots, save for having hostility points and entering in the first 2 minutes. What new information would you gauge from this "yes or no-question" of yours? The question itself is nonsensical. Reserving slots in PBs is not an issue here. "Reserving" players to fill those slots is the issue, as @Cornelis Tromp pointed out in his replies.
