Default New Server, but how many Players?

Hey Guys,

I played Shakes and Fidget over 3 Years ago and when i saw the Guild section or the Player search a Guild section there were several Pages.

Now there are just 3-5 Threads, does that mean, that just 5% Players will play this world?

What i want to say, i play for the competition and at the German World 14 for example there were enough Players and Guilds for a competition and many other Worlds too.

Now when i take a look at this threads i think there wont be much active players or? I mean about 70.000 Players and maybe 10000 really active Players.

Does anybody know something about this international worlds?

A new server is launched if enough accounts have been created on the latest server. New worlds are always very active but of course they will become less active over time.

The "less active over time" problem is more prominent in national servers. Has playa ever considered merging some servers together to ignite competition?

I actually second this, some statistics done to make shure those 2 or maybe 3 or even more servers are equal in terms of toon lvl's or equipment, and bam server merging.

Don't recall if ever mentioned here but it has been mentioned in the past and the answer has always been cant happen.

Yeah, there was a poll about it in the german forum. The majority approved a merge but there were no more new news about an actual merge!

Yeah I can imagine it would be talked about on the German forums with all the servers they have. But this is why I believe it wont happen. Some is what I know and some is what I think. First off each physical server only has 1 maybe 2 game servers on it ( I know of other games that have put 5+ game servers on one) secondly these servers are not networked together and from my understanding either cant or wont be networked. tis is the technical issues to start with then you have game rules to deal with as we all know you are only allowed 1 character per server. As we also know a lot of ppl play on more then 1 server usually on servers next to each other like say W1 and W2 so if you merged them you have some ppl breaking a rule just because they merged servers. So in this case what do you do cant have 2 toons on a server but if said players are shrooming cant delete a toon or ask them to stop playing a toon just not sound business.(yes I said sound business yes this is a game to us for for Playa it is a business cant have a game if it is not making money)

What is needed is a sound plan to merge servers without cheating nor messes with a players toons or playa's income. Till then don't expect Playa to merge a single server.

There were merges in other browser games and I dont see a single problem why not do it here. They could easily add a possibility to "connect" those two or more multi accounts so you can play both/every of them. Of course with adding some new rules because of that. They could also delete all inactive accounts so there is enough space for merging more servers in one. For example I play w4 and there are 259.370 players. Which is stupid right? How many of them actually play?

Yeah I am not saying they couldn't set it up if they wanted and also could change the rules for merged servers. But till they decide to do both they wont do it. Also from my experience in another game that merged server on a monthly basis I am kinda glad they don't merge servers here it causes a lot of issues. 1 it increased lag. it also changed a lot of rankings which top players didn't like. which caused a lot of ppl either changing guilds or quitting.

one thing about this game is starting on an older server doesn't mean you can move into say top 100 or top 50 heck can even get in top 10 or top spot in HoF all depends on if a free player or shroomer but either way u can move up quick as no growing pains of getting bonuses up like a new server.

here is a good example I started on s1 and s2 US about a year after I started playing S1 US was about a 3 years old and I think s2 was 2 years old. When I finally retired on both I was in top 30 on both. I played on them for about 2 years.

So if you want to start on another server try an old one you might find the experience is better in that lvling and maturity lvl is better
