I personally feel really bad for all the people of Midgardsormr. I know that if it were me, I'd be pretty pissed off. Losing my names would be what would probably irritate me the most. I really think it's a bad idea all in all. There are benefits, but the chaos caused will outweigh them. I dread seeing /sea bhafthicket 75 return 30 and have 20 seeking. Not so much for me (BRD cheater), but for everyone else, it'll suck, and I feel terrible that they're forcing this on all the fine people of Midgardsormr.
However, try to see the good. With more people to draw from, it'll be easier to get things done. Missions, quests, etc.
I really think the reasoning behind these merges is in preparation for the level cap breaking. Think about the amount of content they'll need to add to get us all to 99, not to mention a whole new endgame. The sheer mass of new stuff is unimaginable to me. It will be a new game, and I think if the servers weren't merged, everyone's levels would end up being spread so thin that nothing would get done.
Quez has always been a stable server (though that may mean nothing after today's merger). Be glad you're not moving to Shiva, which I seem to always see on the "world recovered" list.
They're going to have to do something to whitegate. Double the population's lag? Pass on that.
Also: Quetzalcoatl is not harder to spell than Midgardsormr, they're both bizarre. I wonder if they took this into account in the merge?
Anyways, I know none of you want to come here, but it's out of our hands. So, welcome. I think it'll be fun to meet all the new people.
