Maybe total users but not at a time. But will never have 2000k. Maybe 2k

Will go the same way as the Classic servers back in the days... you remember them? The servers that had only 10% of their initial population after 4-5 months?

And that is something we'd keep in mind when the time comes to an alt server, of any kind, Cathul. Endless Conquest first, we are close to finishing point with our play for free model, any update or info on an alt server won't be until after EC.

I logged in again after not playing for about 3 years. There is a lot different but a lot has stayed the same. The main one is the population of new players competing with people that have been around for a long time. With a game that is 18 years old, anyone left has multiple 50's and several RR9+. It's hard to compete with that. While it's 100x's easier to get RPs now than 10 years ago (god RR5 took forever!), you can't really expect anyone to come in fresh and enjoy getting rolled.

I want this game to survive and succeed just as im sure the few of you who take the time to post here do also. Im just saying in my opinion if you want new and older players to return its gonna take some leveling of the playing field. I think having a fresh server start for people to begin on an even playing field is the best chance at retaining people thats just my opinion and the way i feel about it.

I just came back after a long hiatus. I have had my account since 05 and have been playing off and on since then. My experience so far is the game is just dead right now theres almost zero action in the battlegrounds and for me i only have one character that is lvl 50 with even a remotely decent Realm rank. So i have to agree with the above poster by saying that you really need a new server with a fresh start to at least allow newer people to come in and be on somewhat even grounds. After a 6month or year you can always merge that server back into ywain and then those people should be on somewhat more even ground. As it stands right now i probably wont stay subbed for very long ill give it a month or so after EC comes out to see if the population can become meaningful enough for me to enjoy the game again.

Just subbed again and I agree with a new server. It's just the same ol' same ol'. Everyone is crazy high RR and any "new" player is going to get so discouraged they won't stick around long.

sure let me, some player from long ago (cant believe my char is still in a guild), roll up a 1L1 **** tank class on any of the realms and go try to fight against zergs and 8mans..sounds run right?
And in that is where my interest in coming back died. Look at the classes they will let you play..its basically the worst classes (the ones that will NEVER EVER GET A GROUP). How many RvR groups are going to take a 1L1 Warrior, or BM?

Yah so it will probably make ywain end but who cares. If you can get a new si/toa server i bet we would see population at around 1500-2000k

Seasons should probably last between 9-11 months. Enough time for the casuals to get invested, and the hardcores to get rr12. Then theres downtime while BS does holiday events and sets up the next server rotation.
Should limit it to 1 server (unless insanely popular, then cluster after a couple months), set RVR realm switch timer to 1hour (no pve timer).
If the seasons are shorter (6months), would have to triple tradeskill leveling, maybe have the RP buff bonus tiers (lower bonus at rr4,5,6,phaseout), maybe even buff XP so people could play a couple alts, ect.
