I don't know if the devs read these but I hope they do. I wish DBG would implement era progression servers that do NOT unlock, like Agnarr is currently. But these servers allow one time FREE transfer to the NEXT server in the progression series. It would work somewhat similar to the current setup except that servers themselves would not progress and transfers would be free. In short, I can make a character on sever A go to 50, then move servers for free and level to 65, and so forth until I level up to the current game. The problem I have is that I play on Luclin. Below L80 the game is a wasteland. I wish I could start a character on a POP locked, or previous locked server and have people of a similar level to play with. When I get to a place that I am content with, I can transfer to the next server in the series. I think P99 proves that there are people who want to play the game in locked eras. I think progression proves this as well. These people are a resource for recruitment to all severs. I think that such a slight change in the current system would help bundle similar level players together rather than making it so hard to find a group pre-100. I also think that the change should slightly change the subscription plans. Currently you must have a sub to play on progression servers. This seems like Inverse Logic (pun intended) to me. I would think that a vanilla locked server that is free would make the most sense as it would be a way to help rebuild the population and get new players to come to the game. I try to get people to join the game but it is wasted effort as they log into a game designed to group with an absent population and a terrible XP curve. I realize it might be profitable to sell subscriptions and heroic characters to existing players but I do believe that games like Minecraft have proved that things like graphics are not going to keep people from trying EQ. I just wish they would find a properly distributed population that would encourage them to stay. so DBG, please compete with P99 with a free server. Allow free transfers from that server to a subscribing server with posted level caps. Allow each server that is capped a free transfer to a locked server of a higher cap or a live server. Please put the stepping stones in place. And yes, I am a subscriber. I can't take credit for the idea, but I really really wish it were a thing.
