It’s all well and good to prefer lower-population servers, but you can also reach a point when the population is so low that you can no longer find players to actually share the game with. This is the motivation behind EverQuest II‘s upcoming server consolidation, but the newest letter from the producer promises that it will be an actual consolidation rather than simply merges by another name. Smaller servers will form one new server, and characters will have server-of-origin tags to identify them (and hopefully keep their names).
Players from larger servers won’t have to worry about this, however, and can instead focus upon campaign updates, the upcoming community roundtable, and expansions to guide functionality. You can check out all of the details in the producer’s letter itself, whether you’re deeply concerned with server consolidation, want to get in on that community discussion, or consider all of the above equally important.
