I like Deadethos the way it is. It doesn't take long to browse the entire FM and it's not that hard to find a training spot during 2x.
I know that a lot of people want more active servers and what not but casual players like me exist too. Several people in my BL and even our guild are like this. All you see is "hi" or "grats" and very little conversation. It's not because we hate socializing or each other but most of us have very stressful jobs/school stuff that at the end of the day, we just want to relax with some mindless grinding or fully immerse ourselves in new content.
That said, I think the best compromise here would be to make 4 GMS servers.
Reboot - can't merge that w/ non reboot obviously
Scania - this will most likely never be merged with any other world given the population.
Active (and Active and
All the other accounts in all the other non reboot/scania worlds can then choose which server to play in. It's a lot harder to do but it's a lot more fair for people who prefer not to be bombarded with useless smegas, ks'ed out of maps, disconnect several times from the massive influx of players logging in etc.
The problem with this will always be migration. I think it's the reason the merges weren't "actual" merges. It's extremely difficult to mix data (most would have duplicates) from one world to another. It's way easier to keep the current log in path and just redirect them to the same end server than it is to switch log ins. I assume this is why migration events are few and far between and why the EMS migration took a while.
So I hope if you guys get to have a choice in going the active route, I hope we get to have a choice as well. Tbh, if there's a "DEAD" server option, I'll probably be the first to sign up and highly likely find the same set of people there.

I think people are forgetting the big elephant in the room that the game as a whole is on the decline. Even big servers like scania are continually losing population. So a server merger will just delay the inevitable.
Seems like reboot is the only server maintaining it's numbers. Nexon should start looking at the success of reboot and think how it could be a model for the games' future. Perhaps there could be a big bang 2. And why shouldn't there be? More and more games are de-emphasizing raw p2w (CS:GO, dota 2, league) and it's thus generating numbers. At this rate the game will just be all reboot in a matter of a few years until nexon starts to look at the trends and rework the game fully.

I'd rather they just merge the FMs and PQ entry maps.
