I've been advocating the years of progress being quite a painful thing to lose, but I honestly doubt Ankama would consider or have time to bother with that.
1. Server costs. Ankama has to make money somehow, and Remington and the Fench community seem to be the most important. The latter statement is pure speculation based on the population size of Remington being higher and French community seemingly more favored or listened to for obvious reasons, but server costs for keeping all 3 servers up is just not feasible anymore and that is why this is happening.
2. Old unoptimized code in the game. There's just no way around it. Unless you have a big hope that Ankama is about to pull some Haven World revamp out of their magic hats, Nox and Phaeris will be losing their haven worlds, and there is very very little chance we will have another shot in getting one in Remington. "Being fair" isn't exactly the most fair comment and suggesting Remington lose their haven worlds and give everyone a chance to get a HW is just being mean to a larger playerbase, and let's face it. Remington is simply larger than the other two servers.
Honestly, any suggestion to Haven Worlds as if wanting to rework it or change the code around it is almost akin to shouting into the void.
Xillor has made a thread with the list of concerns already which summarize a good point of it. It would be better if we argue about things that have a chance of happening. Keeping our haven worlds is just not possibly one of them. Well, this is all under the context of the fact we have no information whatsoever, so we are just basing on what previous merges or migrations are.
As for Remington and havenworld are concerned I did mention it was a crab bucket approach. How is being larger superior? You make it so it seems there is no hope and that we should just accept that everything will be lost so there is no point in asking for it not to be. How is taking away from Remington and what they are taking away in theory from the other two servers any different? Size should not matter and im sure this is where you will retort *size does matter because remington isn't the one being merged* I would ask what server you play on because if it is Remington then of course you wouldnt want them to remove what they are going to remove from us there is a bias just like i have a bias that they should take things away to make it more even. Heck i have even advocated in game to my guild mats they should wipe the markets and all kamas when they merge. I even think the Remington merge is a short sighted id because can the server even handle it? I think it would be better to try and either one create a new better server in general and move everyone there. I am much more open to losing some things then i think most will be for example haven world i could lose mine but id prefer not to simply due to usefulness. I am much more concerned about achievements and items personally but different players care about different things.
Honestly, any suggestions that we should just say and do nothing is like shouting into the void.
