    so basically, Yin will have better rates and new players will be joining a server called Yang instead of Yin?

    Will the server keep the rates or will it go back to being x1 for all rates? I mean it's understandable to have these rates for new players so they can get into the game faster. But it's unfair if the rates go back to normal after server merges. Since alot of players spent so much time and some money to get where they are on Yin.

    I'm usually one to defend your updates and stuff, but this seems to be a bad idea. Would've been better if you had more specific events for Yin to attract more players there.

    But I guess we can only wait and see.

    Yang will have better rates, yin stay the same. After the reason is over yang will merge to yin. So basically nothing changes. I don't see how this would be a solution to increase yin population.

    What the "Season 1" is?

    So You guys think that there will be a huge amount of new players, who will start from scratch and then after a non specific period of time, they will be transfered to Yin (but they will lost their bands/league/M&D/band attributes/friendlist/ combat record/ etc -- because JW don`t know how to transfer it all. Right?). Hmm good luck.


    As this so called Yang server will be with 4x drop, how You gonna protect Yin from big injection of items and massive inflation?

    Better idea would've been if "yang" to be seasonal server and you get a reward on existing server at season end. Maybe it would have been more "competitive". But autofarmers would win I guess.

    It's a booster server, after a set time all chars will be transferred to Yin and the server will start from 0 again, probably one month duration.

    Well it won't bring more players to Yin. If they would've wanted to fix Yin, they would've made Yin specific events. Now it'll only put more inflation on the server.

    :D :D :D :D What about to creating script to generate gold for autofarmers ? :D You just boosted Gold sellers VNs abusers etc.

    And x4 drop and x4 skill increase is something what should be on all servers. PPl are playing only during events even then there is terrible rate ...

    wow...and people said my Merge Tao and Yin idea was bad....

    this is basically throwing money away...

    Hey guys here is an idea.
    Our 2 servers can't even hold a good population...1 is practically falling apart...
    LETS MAKE ANOTHER, YAY!! US!!

    Maybe I shoulda waited abit...like I was thinking....before investing more lol...
    there goes the argument that Yin and Yang can't be merged.....or server hopping can't be done...

    Clearly there are tools.............

    I doubt it, depends if there's something more specific about the server than just rates and it also depends on how long it will take till the transfer.

    One month isn't much specially without gear and who ever has good items on Yin wont use the booster server unless it has something unique available that they could transfer, of course this depends on Red Fox on how much time they decide to host it, if it's 6 months then probably some inflation will be done but nothing new there, there's no valid gold sink ingame anyway.

    Either way at this moment in time I don't really see the benefit of the server, with srs and potala anyone could be powerleveld to HI in a weekend with ease and most items are cheap cause of branches, it ain't worth farming them yourself (banners/flag/beads) so 4x on a "new" temporary server wouldn't be of to much interest for oldies.

    But who knows, it might be a good move for new player retention.

    That's the whole deal with the new server, they are hoping for a new wave of players to jump in. Better idea would be, new players get special gear, buff (higher exp, drop rate) and for only a period of time.

    Anyone can abuse a "new" player only feature on either yin or tao, it took me 4 hours to level a char from 0 to HG 6 so I could farm KL as a example with whatever bonus they would give without to much effort.

    I think overall it's a good initiative, but having yin the final destination isn't the best part. Nothing can help pvp servers in 9dragons.

    There will be 2 Seasons or maybe more. The first season will merge into Yin and the second season will merge into Tao. Yes, the event server is like a "speed"/"booster" server and will be closed after three months (still under discussion).

    Okay, now it's getting ridicolous. Why do you think this will repopulate Yin server? This was your plan to save Yin? People will only wait for second season to start since they already have characters on Tao?

    Why don't you make it merge into Tao server and just make Yin players to move there, since it's dying afaik. Makes a lot more sense, no matter how you look into that. No point in Season 2 merge if people actually get a lot of stuff on Yin after this. Will it "balance" anyhow? That was your chance to lower the costs to keep just 1 server after half a year or smth.

    Also, is it fine if I just remove all of my current Yin chars to be "qualified" to the merge?

    This is sooooooo stupid... You'll better be fixing bugs and improving the game to run as smooth as possible, instead of splitting that little community (that barelly shows up in the wars) into peaces.
    GM are you trying to improve the game, or damage it?

    Edit 2:
    He has the point...

    No its not interested for ppl and i will tell you why.
    That is because they still dont understand why are ppl leavingand what is causing low population.

    Its not about XP or lvl as you said chars can be poser leveled but for what ?

    1. problem P2W as hell but np
    2. The biggest problem that doesnt matter on your lvl or gear this game is boring demotivating gambling etc.

    Most of us play this game because of friends or nostalgic. Byt otherwise think why would new player grind or farm ? You will spend months to gain materials and you will all fail after your long time effort. You can spend time farming materials and pay money with refine and you can stay on +11 or worse. You can t go some dungeon unless you have 2 PCs and almoust top gear all time only wasting of time and dissapointing.
    Doing dungeons without drop event ( srs for example even with x3 ) is waste of time because you are doing runa and many times your drop is totaly nothing...

    I don t care let say they can put tiger ex for 500$ to IM for those who has not time but let others to farm it with 100% chance.
    If for example new that i can do dungeon with normal gear and every single run i will drop item and dor example after collecting 100 items i can trade it for bead i will play every day because it will have sence and i will have goal etc . This system is sick now if it will not change game will die doon and boost swrvers will not help.

    Just look on new patch they are ignoring my quesrion about deco but i am sure that it will be IM based. If there will be for example 10€ for 100% craft why not.
    But if it will be failing and 20 egs will cost a loat what is motivatin ppl to spend hundreds of dollars and got nothing just fails ?
