Move to test =), the day that a spammail is sent or farmers start up has yet to come in there =) discuss lol edit: ofcourse there are other reasons to go there: 1 non screwed up economy, stuff is actually priced on whut its worth 2 helpfull people (donno if i should get included in 2 but <img src="/smilies/69934afc394145350659cd7add244ca9.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />) 3 Great for soloers due to bonus xp 4 great for tradeskillers due to bonus xp 5 great for raiders due to bonus xp (dohh faster lvling is faster 70) and almost no competition for the high end raidbosses 6 Great for me, the more people to talk too the better <img src="/smilies/69934afc394145350659cd7add244ca9.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> 7 donno yet but will prolly lead out of this topic maybe edit: to clear up one big misunderstanding, test WONT EVER get wiped of ur characters **disclaimer** read sarcasm, sigh, ohh and test IS great regardless of sarcasm

Yay, let's encourage people to play on a test server to not test, but rather simply play the game with bonus exp and no plat seller spam.  Yaaay. /sigh, is it really any wonder all the patches that hit live end up buggy as heck?

ugh never heard of sarcasm? doubt anyone would wanna play on test anyway for the abovely named reasons and if they do they are most likely already doing that. and another note bwahh lighten up. the more people test has, the easier bugs get noticed wether ya like it or not, and that tile is simply an eye catcher, i know partially asking for flames, but it does catches peoples eyes

Complain about the system, complain about Sony, complain about design decisions and bugs and patches and everything else, but don't imply, insinuate, or state that the people who play on Test don't care about investigating bugs and following them up properly.  We routinely stop dungeon crawls or raids or crafting or whatever for everyone to stop and do a couple of /bugs and a /feedback on something, before we pick up and start again.  If those don't change something, that's a different story, but leave the players alone.

Regardless what SOE says id going on, the population on my server has lowered pretty drastically since before Halloween..We thought it might come back and stay good after the EOF release, and for a scant 2 weeks, maybe 3 it did....then it started going down again...Everyone blamed the holidays and winter break...Well winter break ended a month ago for college and the population has dropped even further..T6 and T7 zones have a handful of players, middle tiers are nearly empty....Guilds are emptying out...people are leaving....I know that some servers still have a healthy population....Some of the empty ones need to be merged...
