Looks like Carbine is finally going to merge the servers into “megaservers”, similar to Cryptic games or TESO. Their FAQ makes it sound like this was the plan all along, but I find that hard to believe. This question in particular made me giggle:
Q 3. Are you doing Megaservers because of declining server population?
The increased server capacity to cope with the launch rush is no longer required. Megaservers allow us to increase player capacity per server so you will always have plenty of people to play with.
Great way to dodge the actual question there.
But this is likely what the game needs, and I might actually resub and try to play again in what little spare time I have. Until the megaservers are ready they are opening free realm transfers from all the low-pop servers onto Stormtalon, so that might help me finish some of the group quests I need. About a month ago I got my 2nd character to 50 and spent 3 days trying to find people to help with the 5-man Grimvault quests. I found one person and that was it.
