Wildstar is merging servers & taking the "MEGA Server" route

I don't understand why they didn't do mega-servers from the start. Unless you are going to have things like open-world housing, there's no reason not to.

 

this was a company that had some ideas from the start, but on the whole picture, they just seemed unsure of themselves on.

 

regardless of the fact that i do not like this game personally...

 

the above seems to be a good decision & one that will make their existing base happy.  and early camera issues in the linked video aside, the message delivery was well done.

 

& if the existing players are happy, that more then anything else is the environment to grow from.

 

& this proactive move, whilst has the potential to upset those who are upset by pretty much anything & everything...  i think this will be positive for the game on the whole.  does show a company that is still trying in areas that actually matter.

and perhaps the merge was for other reasons?

 

Layoffs hit Wildstar

 

been keeping an eye on their forums, etc.

 

seems with 4 megaservers, (1 EU PvP & 1 EU PvE, & 1 NA PVP & 1 NA PvE...)  there has been issues with max exodus from the PVP servers to PvE servers on both sides of the pond, with recruitment being the main issue/cause.

 

given the immediate layoffs following the structural changes to Wildstars server set up...  one wonders if it was a move solely intended to improve player experience?

 

anyway, of all NCsoft West, only Arenanet (GW & GW2 developers) was unaffected by the staff reductions.

I'll report back from final fantasy soon.. end of the day, takes someone with a love for anime-style art to truly test it objectively then report back to the cringers "how good is it as far as wow-clones go" =P  That's oldschool subscription model =P
