It's just as bad on Connery. NC are third place last every single alert due to getting double teamed so most NC just don't even waste their time anymore, they just go to other continents and fight on getting the meager loss XP from alert or log on their TR alts for win certs. End result is people ARE leaving the game. The player activity charts have shown a non-stop decline for over 6 months. The game lost 500k+ of it's 760k~ peak players in 6 months and the number every month just declines more and more. The devs are doing nothing to address the worst problems of this game so players are just leaving in search of better games, this is why you see these forced server merges, but even then those aren't really doing much. The Connery Helios merge did nothing to change alerts with NC still double teamed to third place last and usually gated, even during Indar alerts with lattice, no difference at all. It's beyond a shame at this point really, but most people are just past the point of even bothering to care with no hope in sight for the real problems being fixed, and I can't honestly say I blame them at all.
