The sad thing about these TLE servers is they seem to die out right around where things get interesting. Most people I've played with on these servers cite anywhere from RoK-DoV as their favorite expansion, and yet the server seems to take a nosedive before it gets to that point. I just looked at the progression rankings for DoF. 9 guilds have already cleared it, and 9 more are like a kill or two away from clearing it. Most of the expac was cleared within a couple days it seems like, with DMP probably only taking longer due to having to farm scales. In comparison, when DoF originally launched, DMP wasn't cleared until less than a month before KoS launched. Even accounting for bugs and such, that's quite a difference. This server has to live for 3 more months in DoF, and it's already been cleared by what looks to be the vast majority of guilds raiding on the server. Of those that leave, some will come back for KoS, but not all will. I still think they should release a server at EoF, then start unlocking things after 3 or 4 months in 3 or4 month intervals, presuming you can get the balance right. But that sounds like a pretty tall order. Edit: and before people start saying "yeah but EQ2 is not all about raiding"...please go back and read the title of the thread.
