You guys know my deal, I play Eve. The game uses only one server for its 250-300k accounts.
While 250k doesn't seem like alot since everyone plays on one server Its packed and has a great economy and Large community.
Technical lmitiations set aside for a second, wouldn't you rather have a MMO that lets the entire community play on one server, in one game world?
Look at the MMOs that released in the passed 4-5 years, they have what 50-400k subs (with the exception of wow) these MMOs release with 5,10 maybe even 20+ servers for a community of 200k or less.
Imagine a Game like WAR with all 200-400k accounts on one server. Its would be chaos like the developers intended. A game like Lotro with 100-300k accounts on one server would be amazing you would never have a hard time grouping for a dungeon again.
I know atm due to technical limitations this isnt possible, but lets say it was possible.
Would you prefer a MMO with one server/game world for the entire community or the multi- server system we have now where only about 5%-10% of the community actually plays together?
I'll toss up a poll I'm actually interested in reading what you guys think.
