[Petition] Normal Server Single World Merge
The game has not that many people in it I'm sure you all know. The highest pop is Reboot NA, but the drawbacks of taking away Auction House, Trading, and Meso Market are just too devastating to switch from normal servers to reboot.
With Reboot having ~50% the pop and the other normal servers splitting the other 50% with Bera having the most of that share(< ~18%)
The server really does feel empty sometimes
So perhaps a revival of the playerbase? Merging all normal worlds is the only option because new players will not come, only nostalgic players will wonder about the game
And when they see how low the pop is the game becomes a turn off. Separating population is no way to keep a game alive especially with player count this low.
The main complaint against a single server world merge (merging all regular servers into 1 server) is server instability, lag, maps being taken.
-Even on Bera you see CLP maps being up for sale. A small world less than 18% of GMS pop, 30 channels all taken.
If we merge all worlds, would there be a need for separate server computing for all normal servers?
No, it would actually be even better because all resources would concentrate into one server creating better server stability
- All wasted resources on running the server in areas that don't need computing across the 5 worlds disappear, because in one server there is a less likely chance of that resource not being used
All Normal Servers normally run at 10-40% load, so the new server gains 40-160% load(Relative) for a server that can handle 400% load (100% load x4 servers)
That in itself is a massive performance boost.
Maplestory 64bit patch is also coming out in a couple months making the server even better
Maps like CLP, 1-5 being mass trained on
Solution: Raise the amount of channels
-With the new server resources from merging all the normal worlds the strain wont be an issue
(Especially since most servers run at 30-40% load)
- If we assume Bera has all 30 channels taken, with 4 normal servers in total
Bera Population: 17% of GMS
Normal Server Population: 44.7% of GMS
(44.7/17)= 2.63 (The amount of players playing GMS in Normal Servers Using Bera as a Unit of 1)
Thus we have to account for around 79 channels to satisfy the massive amount of people who want to train in these maps based on calculations
BUT 79 is a bit overkill, I would personally set it at 60. Then nexon may roll out some new training maps that are even better in the future.
You'll have to make the players take a survey based on their preferences in the new server (Please ask for player input)
Undeniably there will be a bit of congestion in these maps, but they are always taken no matter the server, Reboot is completely full but they still manage to thrive by taking maps that are a little worse. With this new merge will come better metas to come for training as well to combat the population growth.
This ultimately is an effort to revive the liveliness of normal GMS servers
There may be issues to the approach, but if you ask the community and find out their sentiment we can find the best approach
Any issues you want to say? Leave a comment below and maybe we can make a solution of a compromise
It's a massive change
We have to go about this meticulously in order to make the right choices, so take it slow and we can develop the idea well
