Urgent plea to redistribute new players.
As you, and quite a lot of players, know, a while ago you have decided to not place new players on their national servers, but to funnel everyone into int4. This means exactly what it sounds like. When a new player starts playing, they will have to abandon their starting castle to move over to the national server. Once they discover there is a national server, they mostly don't want to move anymore. This has resulted in the sad fact that there is now an influx of 0 new players on NL1.
The foreign lords event that started yesterday had 27(!) sub lvl 70 players with a FL score after a day. Multiple of these 27 are beyond a doubt and well known 2nd accounts. What is left is about 15 that are "new" or restarting players. 15, on the entire server.
Lvl 70 players are quitting, thats what people do sometimes, but there are never any new players. We are bleeding out.
Therefore I urge you to either reconsider the default int4 server, or offer players the option of transferral to those servers. Im not going to start over, but Im not going to keep spending money on a server that is being suffocated by GGS. This is no lack of interest of new players, this is mallicious intent by GGS
