There’s rather gigantic news that Mythic is merging forty low-population servers. Forty. The merges affect every server except for Phoenix Throne. Two notes:
1) I haven’t seen the detailed information on this, but it certainly implies, at least at first glance, that WAR’s population has contracted very considerably since launch.
2) Expect shrillness from various haters. Regardless of what the ignorant think, this is a very good thing for the game, because the simple fact is that the WAR experience kind of sucks on the great majority of servers due either to poor factional balance or underpopulation, and this should help that, possibly only a little, but more likely a great deal.
I would say “Bravo, Mythic!” but “This should have been done two months ago” is probably more appropriate.
