Classic-PoP is the biggest draw in this game, at least when it comes to TLPs. People who miss the boat on a new server often just don't rejoin at all. They're given forum advice like "wait 6 months for the next TLP" when they could be subbing and playing NOW. The argument that the devs don't know if the expensive cost of feeder servers would pay for itself makes no sense at all since they would only last until the merge point. At which point everyone on the server would have say, 30-90 days to transfer to whatever servers the dev deem okay. They you either close the feeder server, or just wipe it and start over. Sounds a whole lot more cost effective than paying to maintain dead servers like Brekt and Coirnav, and remember Vulak? The first server should end with a merge into, or free transfers to Agnarr to keep our P99 competitor viable. If it's a big success, which it will be, the second run through could have the option of transferring to Agnarr or a "stage 2" feeder server that goes from like GoD to Buried Sea (or whatever) and so on. For feeder servers in less popular eras you could tweak selo rules or something to help with attrition. There is no possible timeline in which the classic-pop feeder into Agnarr could fail. It's the exact thing people keep coming back for. Do you know how many p99 people came to Agnarr? Now they are doing feeder servers. We need to wise up to what the current player base needs to stay engaged and keep subbed.
