I wanted to bring this to the Devs' attention one more time, without the thread headers of denial, or passive aggressive long winded deniers of our problem in thread responses, or snarky comments. Many of us on the West Coast and Hawaii believe we need the practical consolidation of players from our time zones or we will not be able to raid high end anymore, and thus players will not continue as EQ gamers. This is a very real fear for us. A server merger with Bertox or Cazic joining Erollisi would accomplish this albeit artificially. Both servers have had very strong West Coast / Hawaiian raiding guilds in the past and thus I believe still have our time zone players lurking about. I don't think anyone wants the West Coast /Hawaiian raiders to not have enough players to field 45+ raiders a raid night for current TBL raids. We have plenty of players on Erollisi, just not enough West Coast/Hawaiian raiders. Recruiting these specific time zone players from the other servers, then getting them to transfer over , just doesn't seem to be a viable alternative for anyone at this point of the greatest game in history.
