Ocean Merging

It's time we pute aside Obsidian and discuss the merge of Meridian and Emerald.Meridian is dying and everyone is moving to Emerald.The poe lost will be huge and we must fix discuss a way to fix it.
The Game will lose a lot of it's players if you let Meridian die as Jade and Opal died.
If we merge it somehow-making a new ocean layout with only the active islands.It might bring it up once more.With Oblivion, many old players will try it out at first... leaving the dieing of Meridian even bigger,Therefore , its time you let people know what to ddo!We're lost!

Thanks.

Re: Ocean Merging

They let my home ocean Opal die, why should they rescue Meridian? Think logically. There will be a new ocean Obsidian, that means much $$$ for the game provider. Do you really think they will waste developer time for a dieing or nearly dead ocean? I think a discussion of the ocean merging is useless. Maybe i am wrong, but i think i am right.

With the way the current population seems to be declining, I am starting to think the game will be dead before Obsidian even gets released.

Re: Ocean Merging

Or you know, we could not merge more oceans because, it doesn't fix the problem.

Again, the problem is keeping new players playing. Heck, getting new players playing, sticking us all into a bigger pool of islands will not make more people, it'll make us all more spread out (Heck, everyone would still end up at Admiral over Lima)

Re: Ocean Merging

I see the Meridian is almost dead already, barely having 20% of the Emerald population. Thus, a merging would only benefit this 20%. I think, since players are already abandoning Meridian, they should just let Meridian die by itself, no merge needed. Players will "merge" to Emerald by themselves by moving over.

When obsidian is out I guess many players will move over permanently, leaving all other oceans with even fewer players. Imo, I don't really think that's such a bad thing. It has been over a decade and it is time to move on. So,I suggest just leave the old servers going and let the players decide if and when they want to let them die.

Re: Ocean Merging

Why do we need to merge? Just let the ocean die. Most people have moved over to Emerald now and that's where most people play. Merging would take a long time and waste precious developer time for little benefit.

Re: Ocean Merging

I believe it's time for Grey Havens to officially give us a position about it.

Re: Ocean Merging

The oceans have already been merged once and are still in this situation, what's another merge going to do?

And I'm pretty sure at least one blue name has said somewhere that another merge is not feasible (possibly due to how big the database would be?).

We probably won't be merging Meridian and Emerald, instead we're going to focus on making some interesting changes, shaking things up a bit, and trying to get the population numbers higher again.

There were definitely pros and cons to the original merges, and I feel strongly it was best for the long-term health of the game. I don't think it would turn out the same in this case, it would be a very short-term band-aid, and there might be performance issues after merging these two already gigantic databases.

It's from this year which means it will take into account current conditions.

Though many of the points made in an earlier discussion still would hold. And as for merging the non-English language oceans in as well,that's been proposed also .
