Ive played EQ since Beta and still do to this day. Although with the server mergers going on Im considering quiting but Ill see how it goes before i make a final decision.
Well, you know eventually thatís going to happen. I donít even see why itís an issue unless there is something about your favorite servers they donít have on others.
Based on what Iím seeing on the official site forums, many players are actually looking forward to the mergers because it will mean new players and/or characters they donít normally interact with. I play a wizard on 7th Hammer and the recent merger with Lanys T'Vyl means some of the zones are packed with players. The observations some have made is that zones like PoK have become central grounds, leaving other zones mostly devoid of other PCís, but at least they are in there.
Likewise I play my barbarian on Zebuxoruk and it is soon merging with XegonyÖwill give me more players to contact. I just donít see the problem if your characters thinly spread over more servers, merging is a good concept for everyone.
