`Regional` Servers: Recent idea that could prove interesting.

Now, we all know that there is lots of talk and strong opinions on the issue of communication in the game world, and how many feel that you lose some of the fun when you don't have such free and open communication with most people in the game. Not everyone would say that it's such an issue, but everyone could agree that not having others you can relate with in a social setting can make things a bit awkward. And it's this issue that has sparked a thought that might be of interest to the community!

What if...... you were given the opportunity to have everyone from your region (for example North America, Europe, Asia/Australia, Middle East, etc) transfer to one server, so that you have more of the opportunity to have that type of localized environment? If a server was selected, and the players from that region were given 1 free transfer chance to go to that server, so that you're now able to play with a better concentration of the people in your area.
Now, these `regional` servers wouldn't be IP locked or anything like that, and others are certainly welcome to play there (CO is an international game, after all), but this provides the players from that region to relocate themselves to one spot, improving the gameplay environment for those on that server by ensuring there is a higher population from their particular regions.
For example, say that the Colombus server is chosen to become the North American `regional` server. All the players from North America (Canada, US, Mexico, etc) would be given a chance to transfer to that server for free, making it the one server with the highest concentration of North American players. People from other regions would still be able to play there, if they wished, but would not get the free transfer chance. This would likely be done with each region, so that Europe would have theirs, Asia/Australia, and so on. You still have the chance to play with friends from other places, still have plenty of competition, but you're guaranteed to know you'll have plenty of locals to socialize with in the game.

This is obviously pretty rough draft stuff at the moment, but there was some interest in that idea, and we're very curious to hear the thoughts and feelings from those in the community about the issue and this recent proposal.

So? What do you think about something like this being done? What could you see as possible positives/negatives?

I Do like that idea, BUT, although this is an international game, These Servers should at least IP based in some points:
-the server MUST be newly opened
-free Transfer for 1 certain region per "Region Server"
-new characters MUST be from this certain Region
-server transer Open for ALL regions (the character MUST be First reborn lvl 100+ and at least 3 months old)
-the region server should be located in that region (e.g. the european server should be in central europe), to also solve the ping problem, because we all know, the farther you are away from your server, the worse is your ping. Me as european, I got a ping of 50-150 on any EU server, while having 350-800 on any US server.

e.g. If the Server is Free Transfer for NA, new characters on that server can only be created by players in that Region, but players from Every Region can join the Server at the cost of the Server Transfer price.
this means, the Server is Open for everyone, but it has some restrictions to "foreign" players so players from a certain Region Won't be overcrowded by players from a "foreign" Region.
Without any restrictions, These Region Servers will become just like our Servers are right now in a very short period of Time.

Sounds okay. Personally I probably wouldn't move. Already got some good friendship in my server.

Potential problem to think about is server crowding, if only one server is chosen.

I think you're missing understanding him the server aren't moving or anything they still will be same server we have now. There just going to pick server at random so ppl of that area can move and have more ppl of there language this isn't a ping issue it a communication one

I think he idea is pretty interesting,but,i prefer to play a game with multy cultures (something like co1 used to be were the majorty spoke english even if we had our national languages).

I can't say i don't agree,but i honestly i won't start playing on a european server -____- (its just that diversity makes the game interesting and fun,still its sad because most eggys find it hard to learn a international language for some reason,but that's because they don't have to because they are the majority those days -____- ).

I forgot something in my other post:

Please, just create an EU only server, like you did with the NA only server and let ppl transfer there from the VERY start!
>>Communication issue? What communication issue? That would be the result, there WON'T be a huge communication issue on IP based servers, as we have it now on kinda EVERY server.

P.S. This is just another alternative way to solve this problem.


How much would it help, if e.g. 100 players from region (let's call it) A come to a server, populated with 2900 players from region (hm...) E? I'd say... not at all!

Now the thing is: new servers with restrictions (as i mentioned in my post above) would help to keep the variety active, because my alternative does not prohibit players from region B,C,D or E to join the region A server, but it keeps their population low enough to have the majority of ppl being of your very own region. Even if only 100 ppl from A do the free transfer to their new home, and 10 ppl from E transfer for 3k cps to that server, the chances of meeting someone who DOES understand you would be massively higher, than just letting ppl transfer to certain existing servers on which we already have the communication issue, caused by any group of players who DO NOT understand you, you're trying to solve.

Well it is a small solution to both ping and environment, as the servers would be in that area (NA is a US server, EU is EU, possible Aus based server, etc) so that you would have a steadier ping and be able to play with more people from that region.
And other people would be able to play there still, if they wanted, it's simply giving each region a chance to have their own kind of "home" server.
