    From the WAR Herald:

    This might be what's in store for our overpopulated Euro servers?

    I'm assuming this is just a quick temporary solution whilst the characters on the servers aren't too high level. Maybe Mythic doesn't actually have a character transfer system sorted yet and they're doing this to try and solve the problem.

    Hopefully this might sort out some of the population issues if GOA decides to take the same action for our overpopulated servers.

    Interesting idea, if it works.

    I wouldnt hope for much, chances are one of each pair will be left like a ghost town.

    I guess they will monitor how many people want to switch so not too many leave, will be interesting to see if it works.

    Maybe I'm just thickheaded but why would I want to have same char on another server (which I have to level aswell since nothing post-copy gets transferred)?

    Edit: Mr. GR which server do you play btw? :)

    Wonder how long before the Daoc crowd pops up screaming about how they didn't get this cloning treatment.

    This just copys the server files and puts them on another server. It doesnt mix 2 servers files together. So the DAoC server would be even more thinly spread out if they used this method.

    The character is copied. Level/name/inventory/everything. Consider it a chance to get rid of all the queues without levelling to your current level again.

    Yeah I was being thickheaded. I see this a good thing for guilds and friends that were forced to compromise due to the queues.

    Its a good idea. It will effectively half the population on the servers with the biggest problems with over crowding and it won't force anybody to re-level or split up if they don't want to.

    I am sure they have a character transfer and server merge plan already in place for a bit later. Server cloning is something they can only do when opening a brand new server. In this case the other option is simply opening an empty server.

    am i being think , but if half the desrtuction move to the other server there will be no order or a severe lack of becuase why would the order change to the newer server

    I pray they don't do this to us. people just need to be less shortsighted and stop whining. The queues will die down soon, better to put up with it now and have a great server later than cry now and have 2 small pop servers later

    TBH I thnk that one of the biggest problems is the ratio of Chaos to Order. The Chaos characters are way more popular than the Order characters.
    I watched a group of Chaos folk running around yesterday conquering just about every Order outpost on the tier. There just wasnt enough of us playing Order to make even a half hearted attempt to stop them. While it may have been fun capturing everything it must have been a bit dull having no players responding to their attacks.
    So come on folk lets even the odds Let the Order ranks grow.

    Do you think they have set the server limits low to get people spread across all servers? When things settle down I expect that these limits will rise. We have some bad queues on our server however there doesnt seem to be loads of people running around?
