One year since Gameforge decided to merge the servers. After this year, I kinda want to hear some opinions on this again. Do you think it was a good decision?
Personally, I still stand by the idea of an European Server. However, I'd like that server to remain European. My main issue with the merge is the fact, that we got Players from other regions, mostly from south america, who play on this server with extremely high delay. Due to how Elsword is coded, this affects the entire game negatively for everyone in direct contact with any one of those Players. The influences range from freezing mobs in Dungeons over teleporting patterns and bugged rank-gain in Drabaki to unhittable nor comboable opponents in PvP. That's the Trade-Off we got for more populated servers and personally from the perspecive of a DE-Player, I don't think that was worth it. I'd also like to use this occasion to poke badidol and Athena again for a solution to this or any news on how Gameforge plans to handle this.
So that's my opinion on the matter and the merge. As much as I love to play with and against other European Players, I hate fighting Lag even more than fighting no one at all. But that's just my personal stance, so what about yours? Do you think the Trade-Off was worth it or not?
