Transfer tokens will certainly increase server pop unbalance, ie people will flock to the server where their faction has the advantage. Unless if... Transfer tokens are not "global" but per server. You would have "Transfer token to Miller", "Transfer token to Briggs", etc... Token cost would depend on your faction's daily average pop on the server you're transferring to. So if you want to get a transfer token on a server where your faction's daily average pop is : - Lowest pop : token is free - Middle pop : token is worth some SC (500 ? 1000 ?) - Highest pop : token is unavailable Token cost would be updated daily depending on the previous day connection stats. This way, faction pops would naturally balance over time on the popular servers. No trick, no forced merge: people would be encouraged to balance servers, but would still have a choice.
