in the details of the patch on the site, one of the main things they are doing is 'Server configuration changes and upgrades'.. considering the patch is supposed to be 19 hours long, is this gonna be a merge?

    But there is only two lines describing what they are doing for a 19 hour long patch.. And the other line is about the extra channels..

    "Server configuration changes and upgrades will be made.
    Increasing the number of channels to 30 for Bera and Reboot worlds."

    At the current state of the game, who would have the balls to say "server upgrades" without addressing the dying population issue? You guys may be right, but one can dream.

    Oo, ok i don't know then but it isn't merge

    If it was they would likely have made it more aware by being specific and mentioning it on the main page

    I believe there might be one next year though

    1. SavageAce said (on the Q&A Twitch Stream a couple of weeks ago) that there will be no world merge/alliance/leap this year.

    2. A world merge is not something that Nexon can spring on us without prior notice.
    There are decisions that need to be made regarding accounts with too many characters, items in storage, items in Auction House, items in Cash storage, etc, to fit in a single world. There are guild and alliance name conflicts to be resolved. And probably more issues that require players to prepare for moving.

    3. If you're implying that the server changes are being done in preparation for a future merge: it's possible. But Bera is currently too laggy, even with just its own population. If the server upgrades and changes cure that lag, then you can start talking about sending even more players into Bera.
