Ok so we all know this game is getting a lot of hype and a lot of people will be wanting to give this game a try at launch. We also know that inevitably many people try a game for a while and even as amazing as this one looks right now, it will not be for everyone. People will try it for 1-3 months and leave. Servers will become less populated. In most games this isnt really a problem. The devs shut down the extra launch servers and merge players into other servers with all their acquired gear/gold. However AoC will be different because of the nodes. What happens if Im on a server and have invested heavily in a science metropolis in the first 2 months and then that server gets picked to be shut down and Im merged into another server which, as we have learned, will have a completely different world/node progression? I have no doubt the devs will try to make this as fair as possible but because this game will not have a completely static world/cities as other MMOs do, mergers do seem like they will be a good bit harder to pull off.
