The Zeth'Kur problem

Recommended Posts

It has been a week since the poll on the Zeth forums, and with over 68% votes in favor a merge what else are we waiting for?

Friday peak was 1.3k and our lows are now dropping below 600 during NA hours, we lost 12% and 10% of our population on Saturday and Sunday respectively last week compared to the week before that, these trends are consistent over a 30 day period and even get worse the further back you go.

So what are we waiting for? New content did not bring people back to Zeth clearly, in fact we lost people even with new content out. The ranking community continues to grapple with contracting brackets and guilds are continuing to struggle to fill raids, especially the remaining North American ones, the situation just isn't tenable long term.

I understand some of you are worried about economic issues regarding a merger, or even names, but I believe those issues take backseat when you look at how fast of a decline Zeth'Kur is undergoing. 

As for the staff, last weekend you did a good job addressing that Zeth indeed has an issue, but what are you guys going to do now that we know the problem? The longer you sit on this issue the more people quit and the worse things are on Zeth. Just some food for the thought.

Sorry to everyone else who has to read this stuff everyday, but this is our only real way of getting the staffs attention and in turn you guys talking about it.

The fact is and has always been that Zeth is losing 25% of its peak population every week. We're now seeing sub-1k averages for most of the day. This is not conducive to the raiding or pvp environment and will only be solved by a merge or transfer from Zeth to Elysium. Those who want to stay are welcome to enjoy their dead server. Or the admin can do a full-on merge and save costs on having Zeth in the first place. Its a win-win for staff and the community.

For the OVH server lease expiration date to approach, perhaps.

Expires in May.

Why do you go so far for this?? just let your characters go and reroll - there is no way you've advanced very far this early in patch progression either way.

It is not fair for the elysium community who has fought queues, gankers and whatnot to get to 60 and get their items/proffesions on a competative realm.

Zeth'kur has had it much easier in every aspect no matter what you tell yourselves. Just simply reroll if you wish a higher pop and stop CRYING.

NO ONE but you are to blame for this, EVERYONE knew this would happen and if you really claim you didn't then it still doesnt mean you should have your characters transferred to a realm where people have actually worked for their items.

Honestly it is not fair in any way that ZK chars should be transferred to elysium. Give me just 1 good arguement.

Will the real slibzshady please stand up

Elysium players enjoyed 1 more week of playable content. For hardcores players, this makes a difference.

Also I could guess Elysium players would be significally well better raid geared than ZK ones where this endgame content well iz ded.

"Lol just let the server die quit crying bro"

 

So you could not make up a valid arguement as to why people from ezmode ZK should get transfers to a competative realm.

Because it would be bad for the project as a whole if they let a server completely die? You realize Elysium has lost a large chunk of players as well right?

Merging would revitalize the project similar to what Kronos went through when they combined their project into one realm. Since Elysium has consistently lost players across the board on all realms they need something positive, a merger would be a nice boost.

You clearly have made up your mind and formed your own opinion regarding the merger, there is zero purpose in me convincing you otherwise, this thread is for the staff mostly.

Reposting here since the same buy is throwing the same flame in all of these discussions: 

 

@slibzshady

Since launch the admins openly stated if a merge would be needed down the road they would be doing it.   ZK was an overflow fix due to queues.  Their choice to move there, you as well as all Elysium players benefited from as it reduced YOUR queue times, reduced YOUR leveling difficulties, and increased YOUR time in game vs fighting the queue boss.  It works both ways.

It is EXTREMELY easy to level on ZK in comparison to Elysium past L30ish. It's practically a PVE server. If any transfers are allowed they should be to Darrowshire as well as Anathema since it has had transfers already anyway.

Elysium doesn't need the ZK characters and they should simply not be there, sorry.

Elysium is the only viable server to merge with since the patch and content are the same.

Elysium is same progression, many of us have characters on Anathema and Darrowshire, level 60 ones at that. Merging into Elysium is the only real option.

Bumping, 1.7k Sunday peak, last Sunday we had 2k, 15% turn over of 300 people in 7 days. This is not sustainable.

So basically ZK has more people than any other private vanilla server, more than merged kronos, but you want free transfers from casual server? Instead of making countless posts about merge you could leave ZK and play on more populated one. Do you really think everyone on ZK prefers overpopulated server or people from Ely want this merge? 7.9k peak on sunday is fine for Elysium, also server capped at 8,5k, why the fuck people from Ely supposed to sit in queue again?
