Yes, I would have to agree with Colorspecs, we have already been warned not to question the legitimacy of players' right to express their forum opinion, haven't we...I could say something more specific about some people thinking they're above such advice but I will refrain...So, whilst it's important to get across what play is like on one server, and may not be in general or specifically the same on E or anywhere else, it adds nothing to the debate to criticize his account of his experience as described. We are, though, going round in circles stating the obvious that altering one thing could impact players differently on different servers. Of course it will. This is why what needs to be done - of which there are good ideas here - needs to take account of this as broadly as possible, again, obviously in as dynamic a way as possible to incorporate the main ebb-flow currents of numbers playing on each side on any given server at any one time/one week/one month. We already know from Sapience that overall pvmp numbers remain more or less stable over significant amounts of time so armed with real numbers, I hope Turbine will come along again here and give us some specific thoughts about the ideas generated here so we can drop or help refine what has been suggested so far.
