Server Lag

This has probably already been suggested, but Nexon should condense all the servers and keep like 5 of them. Obviously, keep the most populated ones: Reboot, Bera, Scania, Windia, and one other. This way, we can have more channels per world and there would be less lag. There are currently 18 worlds in GMS right now. Each world having 20 channels making it 360 channels overall. With only 5 worlds, there can be a max of 72 channels per world. Make that 50 channels per world, as the end goal is to reduce the amount of channels taking up processing power. Then, there would be 250 channels in total from 5 worlds. That is 110 less channels to manage.

For all the players who would disagree with this decision because they don't want to lose their original world, Nexon should give them some form of compensation and recognition. The players who had their characters moved from their orginal world to the now condensed one can choose which of the 5 worlds kept to go to. They are then given a permanent cash item that indicates their original server (maybe a faded background banner with effects?). They could also be given an extra title that can be worn separate from the title slot. For compensation, Nexon should give them what they deem necessary.

The main problem of Maplestory has been that players either stop playing, or they feel pressured to play on another world due to the lack of population in their world. This then creates the problem of overpopulation and leads to massive server lag. Players get on to afk for special events, get on to cube during dmt, and get on to farm during 2x events. Let's not talk about the massive amount of botters in Maplestory (they add to the population as well).

With the aforementioned solution, Maplestory would have a more close-knit community, less lag, and Nexon may even have less management and work needed to maintain their game.

    Sorry, but I already world leaped from Scania to GRAZED. And the last thing I need is a lagfest overall, and crowded maps.

    Even with 50 channels, there's still too many characters overall. Let alone, If I have to move worlds again. I want to move ALL OF MY CHARACTERS. None of this 6 max garbage thank you.
