Currently their are 3+ post asking for server merge. Rather than post in each of them I just want to say to all of them that a server merge is not needed. Guilds are struggling I hear that. You feel that you don't have the people to fill your raid force. So please tell me how a server merge would fill your guild up? Currently lets keep this simple and say each server has 500 people (I know each server has a lot more but were keeping it simple.) Now each server has lets say 5 guilds that raid and 5 family guilds. Now lets say in our example that each guild has 50 people. Now lets take two of these servers and merge them. you now have 1000 people and 10 raid guilds and 10 family guilds. but each guild has only 50 people the same as before. Just because a merge happen doesn't mean you guild is going to grow. What it does mean is when your going to farm a target there is an increase change that that target will already be camped. When you going to look for a rare mob for your hunter task there is more chance that some one already killed it. Or when you want to farm a zone fore the TS drops there is more people to compete with. Having played on High and low pop severs I can tell you from a soloist point of view a lower pop server gives you a lot more options. If your guild is having a hard time then you need to look at what the issue are but I am 100% sure that population is not the cause. Each sever has well over 200 people. getting 54 of those people together is not hard. My proof of this post about open raids. Almost every server is hosting open raids. 50% of the people that show up to open raids are not in a raiding guild. If you want your guild to grow then you need to put work into your guild make it a place where people want to be and you will get people joining. A great way to do this would be to hold open raids. Make announcements about the open raid. the more effort you put into it the better the turn out will be. Another option would be to Invite people from general to you regular raids. If you need help filling spots in you raid then turn to the people on your server for help. Bases on what raids your doing you can get people to help. Those that come and help may find they enjoy raiding with you and apply to your guild. This is a social game and the top guilds that are keeping their numbers full is not because just sit around wishing people will join. Most of the top guilds are active seeking new players all the time. They do this in a number of ways. 1st is the group with people out side the guild. You can't get to know some one if you don't play with them. 2nd is to talk with people. I know it hard to be social in a social game but again it how you get to know people. 3rd is help others to become better. I not saying belittle them but rather work with them. I joined a group playing a cleric and we had died a few time. So the people i was group with asked what spells i was using and then offer a New line up of spells. After the change we had no deaths. I was latter on able to share what I learned with another cleric that was struggling. The point is Gear didn't fix the issue / AA didn't solve it it was a simple change in what i cast and when i cast it that wisdom was shared. Look at the forms their are a number of post of people saying X is so hard. Then their posts of people saying we are having trouble with X event what can we do. The difference is one person is just wanted to game to be nerfed to his abilities. The other is people looking to improve and step up the challenge. Those that seek help often post a few days latter saying thanks for the help as they now over come said event. If your guild struggling then look at why. Do you need a new tactics? I was told of a guild that was fighting the new GMM dragon they kept losing to the enrage timer. They asked for help and were able to beat it in under 10 min. They didn't add new people they didn't improve their gear they simply used a different tactic. not only did they get the win but did it in a fraction of the time. Maybe your guild has other issues. Ask your self why do people keep leaving? is it because of how they are treated? Their are a number of people that are very dedicated to their guilds. But no matter how dedicated some one is if they are not treated well they will move on. I not saying you have to be a care bear. but do keep in mind these are people and not just a number, it takes working together to be a team. So before calling for a merger that has been shown to cause more problem then it fixes. remember just because a server population doubles that doesn't mean people will want to join your guild. If you make your guild a place were people want to be then people will transfer with out needing a server merge.
