You may or may not have read my topic 2 days ago where I complained about grinding necessary to advance in WAR. I play a Witchelf on a openrvr/rp realm marked as medium-population for both factions pretty much all the time. Which I rolled with thinking that medium, like in any other games, means "the golden middle between nobody there and inflated and about to burst".
So in my hour of darkness, with no scenarios popping as always, and no RvR going on as always, and nobody there to do a PQ as always, between solo killing ilirian woodrester and ellyrian grasscutter, I created a witchhunter on a high/full server yesterday, just to check population numbers and how the experience gain is on these servers.
It's a joke, honestly, no, more than that. First of all, as a sidenote, I totally realized, again, why order is underpopulated. I don't know why Mythic was as stupid as this, but about any destruction class looks and feels cooler than the order guys. AND, having the direct mirror as a main, Witchelf owns Witchhunter any day by melee burst damage.
But that's a sidenote, mainly I wanted to state that leveling is incredibly fast and fun when you can join these scenarios all the time. I primarly sat in the starting village with a scenario popping every 30 seconds, until I quit at 4 am in the morning. I leveled from 1 to 9 in 3 hours. So yea, no revelation there.
But long story short. The point is, my Witchelf server was marked as MEDIUM population, on a Fridays peak hour, there were 11 destruction people above level 30, 87 people levels 20 to 30, 70 people levels 15 to 20. So I though well might scale with the low level cap.
But NO, it doesn't, I did that again on the high/full server and got intruiging results. ONLY level 40, more than one page, only level 39, more than one page, only level 38, more than one page, all the way down to level 24, where I stopped doing this.
I did that again with the pure, low population RP realm I created a character on someday and it was shocking, to say the least, all destruction characters from 10 to 40 fit on one page. Friday, 10:30 pm.
I didn't bother to find our how many people exceed the search results, but for Christs sake, it's crystal clear that they don't scale crap here. A server's like "medium" when 200 people are playing simultaneously but turns high with 1000, 1500, or more. I don't wanna rant more than necessary, but what is this **** anyways, 200 people make a medium population? On a regular server in any other game 200 people per faction are close to "empty". You can usually play full well on a "medium" server in any game of your choice with plenty of people around to play with.
No let's cross the border to conclusionland and look at the german european servers (that's what I'm looking at here). There are 3 servers marked "high" population during peak times, and about a dozen servers that are markes mid or low.
Seriously, MERGE the FU**ING SERVERS!!!
EDIT: Yea and I know, nobody cares, but I think I'll quit after the free month until they solve this, I'm not rerolling, they either fix their crappy server policy or they can go to hell and take they game with them.
