You might be joking, but SE have said that is what they will do if enough people don't leve voluntarily.
Which is exactly what they should
do. It ain't like people haven't had enough notice at this point, when did they announce this, a month ago? Longer?
I just can't wrap my mind around people not wanting to leave...odds are, if the server is at max capacity, then there is a lot of competition for HNMs, Dyna, and other endgame ***. Since, arguably, the bulk of the players on any given server, at this point, are involved in the endgame scene in some
respect, it would stand to reason that moving to a lower populated server would just give them some stretching room to do the things they do without another LS breathing down their neck.
I mean, I can understand that trying to migrate a 50+ person shell from one server to another is probably a little difficult to organize (getting the entire shell to even agree
on where they're all going is probably a task in itself) but there's tons of small shells out there that could do it without any real fuss...
Eh, what do I know? Fairy doesn't really seem too crowded to me, and my core group is small enough that I'm sure if it came down to it, we'd be able to jump ship pretty easily and with a lack of QQing about it lol
