I haven't heard anything like that.All I know about is people on the PvP servers [Removed for Content] about noone to play with.I don't see why SoE would merge the servers though with the new advertising program to gain back old and new customers.

I would think that it would depend on the result of the summer program.  To merge servers in the middle of it would not be a wise marketing move.

<p><b><span style="font-size: x-small;color: #9900ff;font-family: verdana,geneva;">I agree. It was even two named servers being talked about, namely Befallen and Blackburrow. </span></b></p>

Nobody from SOE has commented on any such thing. It has just been over zealous hearsay from players who don't understand that limited free transfers are a much better solution for both SOE and the players impacted.Unfortunately, rarely do these same people demanding "Merger!!" think about anything more than themselves.

You sure this isn't just someones wishful thinking? <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> It might not be the dumbest idea though, it has to be better with fewer and more active servers, rather than many barren ones? This is an MMORPG after all. The possible downside would be increased lag, though....

Interesting, I'd say Befallen is no serious need of a merge...but I don't know about BB

why would they need to have server merges? living legacy program has gone live.   <img src="http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/images/smilies/1cfd6e2a9a2c0cf8e74b49b35e2e46c7.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" width="15" height="15" />

<p>Server merges? well, the low level zones are deserted, but, 0+0 = 0, what I mean with that is they would have to merge every server into one + get new players + revamp all low level content to bring them back to life, however, at level 80 population is not doing too bad. </p><p>Soe has not said they will merge servers, they also have not said they will never do it, they said that they arent going to do any right now.</p><p>what you hear about merges is nothing except rumors.</p>

<p>I bet you heard this from your cousins uncle sisters best friends milkman whos related to a cop who pulled over a person who tired to use that line to get out a ticket  who was told this at a party that a girl was told this from her fathers best friend who works for SOE.</p><p>Give it up people unless you can post the "CREDIBLE SOURCE" dont post it.</p><p>Even after a merge were to happen people will still complain they cant find a group or cant find a tank, healer, chanters, true DPS or cant get into raid so they can get their mythical.</p>

SOE usually announces server merges well in advance and will usually throw in a free server transfer to a server of your choice as part of the process.

So, it is of course the first possibility people ignore in favor of the most drastic to post about.
