Mega servers?

O.o

Think they will wind up trying to go to 1 uberserver with distributed instancing to bypass the need for cross server?  I dont really understand what other purpose this could serve.

Distributed instancing worked really well for Guild Wars. I'm not opposed to this.

This might not bode well for the game, but it does bode well for getting us into the PTS for testing HM TFB.

CO is an east coast server, so in theory we all have our characters on the special PTS.

Also: this server has a default of 12 character slots.  This makes me happy for the possible inclusion of more slots on live soon™

I am for any change that could boost our population and chances for more Rateds.

I also hate Surrena.

My sources say no.  Or... not yet.  Pitch a fit on the forums.  Lets make this happen. :P

Look at that, I actually got a dev to post in a thread. They exist. Surprising.

If they want either test to really succede they need 1.4 on the high pop.  No one will use it if they don't.
