Make Internation 1 Default Server Again!

GhjHeroGhjHero Posts: 1,802
In the past when Goodgame Empire started International 1 was the default server. Gradually other serves were introduced to the game and people began to play on those since they were for their own country. We still had a decent amount of people come to play on Int 1, but gradually our population has been declining as people quit the game for whatever reason and there arent enough people to fill their places. At one point in time our population was as high as 30,000 however it has sunk all the way to 12,528.

This is incredibly obvious if you look at alliances that used to be strong. Ill give you some examples. Invictus was an old strong family that collapsed due to members leaving. Their main alliance is able to hold as many as 49 members, but before they regrouped all their players into it, they only had about 25 players. HW KnightsofNi is another example. It can hold 33 players and did up until recently, but they now only have 13. FF Elite can hold 43 players, but now only holds 24. If this keeps us then the remaining players will be playing on a ghost server. It will be impossible to start a new alliance and grow strong for newer players, all the players will already have an alliance.

It is obviously a not a matter of people, USA server has 60,000 players. So heres what i propose; for a month (or more) at least International 1 should be made the default serve again. It should be enough to restore the population of International 1.

    Agreed. Int2 default would not be that bad either. USA1 already has 60,000 players. Other country based servers are thriving too, whereas int1 is dying.

I have been members of prominent organizations in International 1 and International 2, and have played in United States 1 with my forum buddies as well. It has shown me many things, but mainly that every action that is partaken in this game and in the world can only be deemed right or wrong depending upon your perspective. Never pass the blame, fight hard to succeed. As a non-ruby player, I managed to create and nurture not one but two of the most successful alliance families in International 2. Believe, there is always another path. Success is determined by the amount of effort you are willing to put in"

    yeah usa 1s strong alliances have like 65 players (HIVE, for one), so I agree. I think it should rotate like so:
    jan.-int.1 feb.-int.2 mar.-usa1
    this will be a neverending cycle, although adjustable depending on server populations.

    A cycle for those servers that need it is an interesting idea. That way no one serve ever becomes depopulated.

    could not agreed more. Int1 server is down to 12,000 members. Was before 30,000. Hard time to get alliances full.

    Don't double post, just edit it. Also, like akusto said, what would happen to people with 2 accounts with one in each server? Banned for "multi-accounting"? Let them be?

    Int1 is down to round 12,000 (EUROPE 12.000) members, i don't know how int2 is, but with this kind of numbers you got high level players (round 3,800 / 3.800 players) and low level players (< level 20) round 4,000 / 4.000 players middle is round 4,000/4.000 so int1 is getting a bit low on players right now. It is very hard to get new players to you alliances and soon int1 will be dead just because of the less players.

    GGS have to do something about it. Make Int1 default server or let them swith between server. Merge both server.
    But the need to act now!
    And for the double players on both server, well if the merge we can find something to solve this problem.
    Maybe GGS can merge the servers, but not real merg it, but just add map of int1 to int2 for example. Then you still got to play on you normal server, but the people aren't real merge. Their is a threath going on with a proposal like this.

    Honestly, I don't see the logic in having a national server as the default one when you have international servers. Is American glorificationism infecting the minds of GGS too now? O_o

    I really would like to merge with International1. When Int1 was default, we had too less number of players. The same story with Int1. The merge could give us less problems, more fun and more players. But there should be problem about where to put all the players. Lots of peoples in Int2 have outposts and castles at the same koordinates where Int1 players. There I could make two the same maps, put on them players, and unite them. No other way, but the merge is important if designers don't want to lost players from both servers.

    It's a good idea to merge int 1 and int 2, but the problem is that all players have their castle in the same coordinates so that would be a problem. U can do that every castle and op get a randomized place and everyone get one free ''move your castle'' from the kings market.
