Default a new server would be terrible

and definitely not classic.

was it classic for everyone to rush to level 34 to farm manastones? guises?

most people didnt know those items existed in 1999.

how many people out there did the same thing on Wuarm as they did on Greeen and are planning to do the same on the next p99 server?

god i hope they dont make a new p99. if you want that experience, theres always TLP.

I'm neither here nor there on a new server... I mean, there was blue, then there was green, right? Although I see your point about all these existing players just creating accounts on a new server to be the first to do something.. which is also the point of competitive gaming.
I hear of calls to server merge too and I suppose that's to alleviate the user profile issue and the degree of top heaviness.
But, and it's only ,my opinion, after years and years of hearing about new servers being the panacea of all the world's ill's, I personally think ongoing recruitment of new players TO the game will be of greater benefit.
And that's a huge challenge given the age of the game. I do think the FTP quality will be a greater draw as pennies become tighter. Or maybe that's just me.

Wouldn't merging the servers double the top heaviness, not alleviate it???

Probably. I'm not saying that reasoning is correct and I'm not calling for it. Precisely the opposite. This is why I would be more inclined to look at attracting new players to keep the churn going. But with no revenue stream other than donations, then the effort and expense made attracting new players has to be appropriate to the reward gained. I feel, by and large, that effort has to be down to us. Word of mouth is as cheap as chips and very effective.

I mean, there's loads of discussion on this. Look at the TLP's in live. They all end up being top heavy, guiding the "new" players up the levels until instanced raid content is reached, then after a while they open up a new server.

The only thing in question there is how much revenue is generated in live by actually attracting new players vs how many are old players rolling alts on new servers and simply maintaining their subscription. Either way, it's a lucrative revenue stream for a twenty odd year old game.

I guess it boils down to maintaining interest. Whatever way it is done, it needs to match the circumstances. Wasn't green meant to merge with blue then a new green server launched? (I'm not sure on this, as I'm new) If so, I think you have P99's attraction model there.

A new red with chanters nerfed and channeling fixed and bowquest nerfed and clickies unnerfed would be fun. Also perma legacy. And item loot.

There already is a red and nobody plays it. So no.

It was at this point I decided to no longer be kind to the casuals as they have extreme short term memory. They did this to themselves, unfortunately.

Okay I guess

If it's not something I personally like then no one should be able to do it.
