Ever since the beginning of EQ there has been racing and competition. Give us seasons. Instead of the constant exodus from server after server. Whatever you come up with for the "Hardcore" isn't gonna attract the hardcore unless it is a true race server. You will have to manufacture some form of competition to draw them away from the casuals. Casuals are a source of Krono for the Hardcore. It is very simple. If you can produce a server that has fast XP and 1 week unlock on content clears along with a full reset after 1 year.. you will get your Hardcores off the casual servers. I mean, they might still play on those servers for the krono farm.. but they will be all about the ego measuring.
