It is cool that you finally did this, it is a drag that I just paid $20 less then 2 weeks ago, before any of this was thought of.

So props, but I feel like I've had a large bird fly over be, and now I have a messy head  :(

Well done. Every choice this team makes is the wrong one for me. I am sorry my sub renewed this weekend.

I'm hoping I'm reading things wrong...but as a person on Evindra I am deeply saddened...

genuinely saddened...

 

Would it not have been better to merge all the RP realms into one on the EU side and on the NA side just have the one RP server? Even going forward with this mega server you've presented an RP channel seems awkward to me as it is sounding. It basically is a zone/region wide channel if I'm  reading right, which isn't good for RP beyond organizing massive events...

 

If I'm reading how this RP channel works wrong, please correct me. However from what I've read it does not help make a friendly RP environment and instead stacks on to the /say range issue, where there is just so much clutter and interference it can make RP unfriendly...

I ask why the RPers feel bad about it? I was told most of the people on that server don't RP anyways? I mean guilds can still be guilds...?

 

(but i do agree, the RP realms should have stayed their own.)

Personally I hate the idea of a megaserver.

 

 

I much prefer the 3-4 servers that you guys are pushing to now.  I support that decision, I don't support just having one giant server everyone is on.

 

 

I think if you did a poll you would see an overwhelming majority of people favor 4 servers to one giant one.

As a casual roleplayer, I do NOT want this to happen. I know us roleplayers are not the big money audience, but we do keep games alive past their death dates. Come on.. :(

So now those people who were toxic and jumped to a different server will be back with the original player base again with the mega servers. I'm ... I'm really not sure how I feel about knowing the jerks that left, because progression wasn't "fast" enough for them, will be back. Much less that guilds with the same names are going to be forced to give up their name if they don't have seniority. And new server firsts? How do you suppose you do that for cooking and other crafts? Remake everything again?

 

I am just... confused by this.

For all that is holy, please do NOT merge Evindra with a PvP server or even a normal PvE server.

 

There's a reason people rolled on Evindra, and that's for RP. If you're just going to make it like every other server, than what's the point? People will get harassed and laughed at when they were just trying to enjoy the game, and it'd be a lie if anyone said that there wouldn't be griefers. That, and I have a feeling that the people who were trying to avoid RP will now have it shoved in their faces.

 

Either make an RP-PvP server and merge us with that, or just keep Evindra completely seperated. Otherwise, this is just going to end in disaster for all those involved.

RP actually happens. It's a thing. It'll make public RPing that much harder, and will probably end up confined to housing at this rate if at all.

Since everyone here is being a naysayer and complaining that their community of 15 roleplayers is going to have less people to play with, I implore you to band together with your tight knit community and take advantage of the free transfers to increase the community you've been wanting for so long on another server.

 

I for one am extremely excited to finally be able to play with people again.  Many of my friends have transferred away, and now those of us that stayed will be able to play with them again.  A few of my friends will certainly be returning to the game, as now their playtimes will be full of interaction with other players instead of by themselves.

 

I do find it annoying that they kept it secret this long, milking people for transfer money, as paid transfers should never be to find a functioning population.

 

Cheers for a much needed (although a month too late) bit of server transferring.

 

All in all a good thing I guess.

Ah crud, that means my storyline of Kael on Evindra and Stormtalon is wrecked, doesn't it. This is making my head hurt.

 

Where is Evindra going to go when it gets merged?

I agree. I think they're all over-reacting.

 

Well i almost went to the RP server, but guildies on Orias went stormtalon.

It was:  xfer and play with people you know  vs  xfer and have to meet new people.

Not that I'm against RPing (always thought it would be fun), or meeting new people, but I took the easy option and went with people I had already began to know/do stuff with.

because for RPers, the most important thing ever is immersion. and having Non-RPers drive their hoverboard through you, dance around you and spam stuff during your RP pretty much destroys that. 

 

While merging Servers / Megaservers is probably a good thing, reducing roleplayers to a chat channel is a REALLY bad move for Roleplay. I am very disappointed.

For the RP crew,

 

I'm going to paint the target on my back here and say that, the very, VERY sad truth is that we couldn't justify a megaserver JUST for RP.

 

Believe me, I'm gutted. I play on Lightspire myself and have always championed RP communities in MMOs, I've played on them in my personal and professional time and always found them to be wonderful places.

 

We will introduce a new RP Chat Channel, and combined with Circles, Guilds, and Housing I still *genuinely* feel WildStar has a lot to offer an RP Community. But I know many won't see it that way, will be fearful of sharing a realm with normal gamer folk and this will be upsetting news for them.

 

I can only apologise and say we did try to consider it, but in the end the cruel math of logistics won out.
