My only concern on server merges is if they merge Coinaiv with a server that has a later expansion. My friends and I wanted to experience the later game, BUT wanted to level from the start, AND did not want to have Defiant gear. We already planned to hit max level before the expansion that adds defiant hits so we don't have to deal with it, but... if they speed that up, and we end up with it before such, we will likely quit. Defiant kills any desire to experience the content. It kills the game.
