    How did the game change after Velious that would make a difference? Just wondering from a design perspective.

    Traders are meanless, and always have been, as a way to measure population.
    General chat is an even worse way to measure populations. First, a majority of the players turned off General chat channels the instant it was created, and many others simply log into it only when absolutely needed. Second, there is a cap of 400 people being in a single chat channel, when that cap is reached autojoin attempts to put you into General1, then General2 and so on, this screws up the placement of the rest of your autojoin channels.

    There will be considerable overcrowding if you merge anything other than the low population servers I mentioned.

    FV complains regularly about overcrowding. There are several guilds there who have said if they could move enmasse to Brekt they would.

    Mangler is not near the point where overcrowding will actually start to be an issue. Also, by the time that it does reach that point, the population for it will have dropped to the low level of the other TLP servers.

    This. Doing anything in the open world is infinitely more enjoyable on Xegony than on FV (although, the ruleset differences contribute as well). Not to mention the lag, which is somehow even worse than on Xegony.

    I will echo some of the past questions.

    Are we required to redeem the Heroic Character within the promotional period between March 16 and May 10 or can we keep it in perpetuity?

    Also, will deleting the Heroic Character re-grant the HC claim?

    Precisely! Well stated!

    Any word on enabling Free to Play on TLPs once they reach the Rain of Fear expansion (roughly when it released in the live timeline)?

    Also any word on disabling the Truebox code on existing TLP servers once they reach later expansions at which point boxing was extremely commonplace. For example when the Seeds of Destruction expansion launches and every player has access to a pocket mercenary? Many people would prefer to pay for a boxed account rather than rely on a mercenary in SoD or be required to buy an additional PC and find desk space in an era where most PuGs are non existent on TLPs rendering the purpose of the Truebox code irrelevant.

    Just an educated guess but I'm thinking that it'll be no for any TLP going f2p before they catch up with live and also a no for them removing True Box code before any of them catch up with live either. It remains to be seen as to whether or not TB code stays after they've reached live status
