I logged into the game today to complete the Heavy Metal event and was greeted by a notice that my server, Averheim, was low population and as a result, free transfers off the server are being offered.
I'm saddened by this occurrence. Averheim dropped to medium population and was an incentivized destination for other low population servers and even with that, we went from medium to low!?! Oh my. *sad face* The guild is meeting tonight to decide if we should switch servers. Oh hum. I don't have an opinion on where to move so I'm not going to the meeting. Where ever COW goes is where my characters will live. Besides which, I don't have any conflict characters anywhere else and the chances of my names being taken by another player is very slim.
Oddly enough, the oRVR lag on Averheim last night during the HM event was sick. If that was lag on a low population server, what the hell is it like on medium or high pop? Which leads back to my preference that they work on fundamental game fixes before becoming too absorbed in, "Must have more oRVR now, Grrr!"
The Averheim player community is trying to work together to make a decision and preserve server unity. If you want to get involved and voice an opinion check the thread here.
