I'm very hesitant about the mega servers devouring the rp server for one reason.
and that's greifing from the player base that thinks it's funny to harass rpers. I'm talking about wankers that even after we've put them on ignore come up and run through us. Ignore doesn't make a character invisible. In wow when someone was ignored the animated emotes are still visible.
Who wants to be actively rping in game with a strain emote being spammed in your face?
"Oh you can just go to housing."
No. If I'm playing in the game world I'd like to rp in the game world and maybe attract walk up rp. A separate channel doesn't completely solve the issue either because again, there's people who get enjoyment about ruining other people's fun.
Most of the role players protesting the mega server are people who have had greifers come and harass them. Please Carbine, if you go ahead with this merge, do something for those of us that want to avoid getting harassed. I don't know, make an ignore phase the other player so we don't see /strain spammed ever .5 seconds. combine the french and german rp servers with us in one small mini mega server. I just don't want to feel chased out of this game because some dude bros think it's hilarious to pick some rpers and dance on them and spam emotes at them.
