  • Server's dying

    What's going on with UK server?
    All players moved to US? I started the game week ago so I can easily change serv from UK to US without crying :P
    Did I have to? I'm just a little bit scare that in the future i'll stay alone with a few players at UK serv...

    What do you think about it?
  • Agree.Wanted to start a thread about it too,(lmao,everyone keep stealing my ideeas :rofl: )
    Anyway,i think when the players agreed for our game to go to steam, they wanted so we can gain more players on NosCitadel(UK server) because our server was preety dead before and now is even worse.
    But to create another one ffs,how is gonna help us ? That will just steal more players from our server.
    It's to be noted that a good chunk LEFT our server to go there.
    I suggest a merge in the upcoming future,after they grew to like 70 or so,so they won't get discouraged on playing with the big guys.
    Say what you feel,it's not being rude.It's being real.

  • I know,but i guess merging remains the most diplomatic ideea,i can't see any other way,shutting their server will be a huge damage gap at Entwell pocket since like 40% of players there are nosmallers and they most likely quit and so the newbies.

    I think everyone is just trying out the new server once the HYPE is gone UK should go back to normal.
    They can like help themseves you know,they start in huge numbers anyway.
    Its not like starting on US is any better.

    Of course you are right that nobody want to starts with server full of high levels but you know, when you created a new server the high lvl players from UK will move to new server, ofc you'll get new players but UK's hurting right now. Instant Combat after 18:00 is gone now :/

    Also i doubt they will come back.
    The prices are far better then UK anyway.

  • also a new server for ppl to have a fresh start has been requested various times on our servers forum and many others, you get what you ask for, UK server reached its peak a long while ago I think a fresh new server is a good idea, where ppl can now make real achievements, players such as myself are on UK top10 that is our achievemen, we have effectively done all there is on the server, just enjoy the new US server, learn from mistakes of uk server and have fun with it
  • As a player who has played on UK for far too long, spent far too much IRL $$$, It is quite unfair that a new server is made and I am expected to just "start over". A server merge OR a character server swap should be put in place so that all of our effort isn't wasted. All the new steam players are going to US, not UK. UK is becoming dead and nobody will go back to it. My ping is also considerably better at US then it is on UK. I'd love to go there, but theres no way in hell i'm starting all over again after spending so much money & time on UK. Since there was no option to go to US when I started, I think it should only be fair that old players can swap now. Plus, if we can use the same nosmall on the other server, I don't see why I can't use the same character. It's all the same account, should be allowed for a swap in my opinion.

    It's not like this time will be different if this is what you are aiming for.

    Agree,swapping should be allowed.I tried to leech my char there,but im just so unmotivated,just can't bring myself to do all this long griding again.
    Because,let's face it,This game is HUGE GRID.
    The economy isn't formed,all the prices are wrong and weird.The Nosmallers won't sell nos$ anymore because the rate is too low and they will wait till the server grows and the leveling is more exhuasting then ever w/o any usseful mats to find at bazar.
    I don't have the same mentality as tay,to accept everything as a new challenge to unlock a new achivement,if all my progress with sweating and tears isn't considered an achivement itself then i don't wanna find out what it is.Many players from the UK server feel the same,there are 3 stacks of speakers in bazar and each of them 100k,soon we will be only a handfull of people and finally the server will lose because we won't produce money to pay the bills.
    Maybe i just look too deep in it,but tbh i can't understand the hype of a high lv doing something so trivial and boring,something that probably he did more then 10 already.
    Say what you feel,it's not being rude.It's being real.
  • I don't think nos UK will die so easy. Yea, because US server is new, ppl just wanna see how is to start on a new server after so long time but after 1-2 weeks when they see how hard is the new server because there is no eq,res,sps and you have to make all yourself not many players will stay here and most probably will come on UK because for nosmallers its easier to grown on UK more than US. And about high levels from UK they wont give up all their work on UK (i played UK 9 years and i will not give up what i did here because i invested a lot of time in lvling and making money/items/sps). As Morgoth said we just need to wait until this new server HYPE will gone and nos UK will come back to normal.
    About a server merge will be pretty nice but only after at least 1 year so US can grown a bit.
  • why not have leveling event to motivate players on uk server? or maybe on us server? or anything that will help players go along while the hype is going on..

    Also by the fact, if merging server would help the game? I don't think so.. old players will quit due to dying server, new players will quit due grindfest, and returning players will remain due to they are not being behind anymore.

    so either one, act fast before its too late. Don't make anymore big mistake or nostale will dig its own grave.
  • As always nobody forces you to change server but also nobody forces you to stay on a server.
    Give it some significant time. If let's say in 1 month from now UK is back to normal then all of your current panic will be pointless.

    Account transfers through servers haven't been possible for 10 years now so I kind of doubt that will happen any time soon.
    In addition to that transferring your high level character in a new server would be unfair right now anyway.

    As tay mentioned a lot of people kept asking for a second server for years now. I guess you can never really please everyone. =/
  • Nos UK has been like this for ages idk why u guys are over reacting now.

    Besides school has just started in most of countries, also it "might" get abit more active within few weeks when new server hype ends & most of ppl from Holiday returns.

    For now let the newbies enjoy the new server.
    :cookie:
  • How would it be unfair? the only way it would be unfair is in PvP but, the new players shouldn't be going there until they're higher level anyway. It could help boost lower levels and help them with raiding etc as well.
    It has been like this for ages, but it's actually at the point where it's just a wasteland now and all this effort is wasted because of other servers.
    I don't think it will get better in a month, the nosmall rate is already trash, players aren't gonna magically level up in US, then be like "ohh idk maybe i should just go to uk even though US is active as hell"
  • That would be the case if the high levels were interested in helping lower level people, but we all know that doesn't happen if it did then 90- people would not need to ask for GMs to make raids for them.
    As for the 1 month it was an example.
    If people want to leave all their hard work in the UK server to start in the US server from 0 then not much we can do anyway and if that actually happens the fault lies within the community not with Gameforge opening a new server, but I guess that's just my opinion over it.
  • Morgoth I've got the same opinion as you man. Theres so much people crying about it, and it's literally giving me cancer. -.- ... Cant believe you have to put up with threads like this @.@ .. Dude, it was bound to happen.. whats happening is completely normal, UK isnt going to die, its just going to have a peak on US for a few months.

    Tyvm for the Epic Siggy Darkness !~

    Honestly, I started play on UK serv 2 weeks ago and already I'm done with it. I'm ending my school at 15:00 and on 16:00 IC is dead, you understand that? at 16:00 IC is dead... also (idk how is called here) but Jerico have option to battle 3 vs 3 at 13:00, it's dying too. The point is that, this server maybe ill be more active month later, but now IC is dead, Jerico is dead and I think that Glace (land of ice?) will be dead soon. Now I'm very sad that i have moved here because now I spend my free time to UK serv where nobody playing now. Great job :/
    I'll move to US server it would be no problem! but who'll give me promise that year later This US server'll be active as already hm? what kind of move is it?
    Why Nostale support didn't do something diffrent like idk maybe ASK PLAYERS "WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT NEW SERVER"

    "New serv'll give new players a chance, it would be fair" what chance hmm?
    In UK they have all items on NB, high level players always helping in raids, missions etc. Also you have ready family to glace,raids,lod.
    Okay someone can say that people want to be in the top. For what reason? they'll get a reward or something like that? it's sick..

    Better chance hours of Land of Death and stop dig your own grave.

    God....
  • I started on one of the old servers some time back, and I have to tell you that it is not nice at all...
    Yes, you have high players helping you, pulling you through raids and LoD, leveling you.
    But that means that you are missing out on all the fun low-level content. You can't enjoy the raids as everyone (even in Cuby) has high SPs, is most likely lv80+ just doing it for fun, has mounts and everything and they kill all the mobs before you can even arrive (yes, I once made it only barely to the boss room before it was down oO).
    That's not fun at all, sorry.
    If you manage to get through that, pull yourself together, invest tons of hours to level to lv90, where (as everyone promises you) "the real game begins", you learn that you are still a low noob. Others had years to get the best equipment, the best SPs, etc. and you are standing there, freshly lv90, with your specialists on lv50+7 and your lv85 rare 4+5 weapon, no ressistances at all (because why should you need anything except maybe shadow for LoD?), etc.
    That is also not fun at all, that is really demotivating.

    But say you make it through that and want to get good gear yourself. How do you do it? You can't do the raids because everyone who sees your stats and items kicks you. You can't buy the items because they are just freaking expensive and you don't know how to make 20kk a day (although everyone seems to claim that this is nothing).
    All in all, you come to the conclusion that this server is "too old", that everyone here is so much ahead of you that you will never catch up, and you quit.

    This happened to me, this happened to quite some other players I talked to, and this might also happen to many people who start over steam. Thus, a new server is the better choice for these players.
