Combine low population servers
 
Hello,

Let me explain my idea.
There are countries with 2 to 3 servers.
And on every server only around 200-300 Active players are playing. There is absolutely no competition on these servers, this makes players leave!
This problem can be solved by combining all these servers.
As a result, the competition for the top will be exciting the same can be said for the battle between the guilds, there is always one or two guilds that are at the top, this will make the competition on all levels exciting again!

Why would this be a good idee?
Nowadays, players on these servers almost never buy any mushrooms.
Comparing the servers will bring this back!
players will start buying :shroom: mushrooms :shroom: again to be the best of their own nation!

combining the servers bring some problems.
There will be some players with the same name...
This issue can be solved, the highest level account can keep his name.
The account with the lowest level can change his name for free.

I know that most of the players have a account on (for example) world 1 and another on world 2. But players won't have a problem with this, they will be happy that there is competition again!

Lets bring the competition back!

Holle already talked about this on forum .de, as far as I know they're going to test this on August with s2-s5 .de :)

Do you mean the german s2-s5 worlds?

The best solution would be to merge servers with the same or a similar starting date without taking the nationality in consideration. In this way, a type of international server (lets call it "mega-server") will be created that will offer competition to players. However, there are some technical issues with this idea because if I am not mistaken a S&F server has room for 1 million players so a single "mega-server" will not be able to fit many servers. To solve that, Playa will have to delete the accounts of players that are inactive for an year or more. If the former is not possible then Playa should create a level limit that players should pass if they dont want their accounts to be deleted.

@katastrofeas, only servers from the same country can be combined. not from diffirent, there are already 18 international worlds.

Yeah and no, at the same time, because out there are some countries that have only 1 server, like the romanian server, and its impossible to merge with something else, beside another single server from another country :) that is what he wanna say

Sadly i can't read deutsch :) but i'll believe you, thanks anyways. I hope this is going to happen!
I need more competition on the dutch community.
all countrys that only have one server can combine I guess...

Basically, it is a good idea but nothing all players will like. It will be tested on some German servers (s2-s5.de). Depending on the feedback we receive, we might merge more servers. The crucial point is that players have different opinions. Some might like finding new guild members or competing with a lot more active guilds whereas others might complain about losing their hall of fame rank or reputation.

A forum poll won't help either as only few players visit the forums regularly. Others just play and never read Facebook, the forums or even the manual and might be completely surprised or even shocked about the merger.

I don't think they will be suprised, S&F will send a private message to every single player. just like they do with the release of international servers, and holiday events. If players have a problem with this, they'll go to the facebook page or forums and complain.
(Thats what I would do if i don't like an update)
and tbf the top 100 has been the same for 2 years now on low populated servers...
time for a change!
