Hi,

How about a suggestion to merge EU1 and EU2 servers in one,, 30k players per server is low to get decent MM and would remove the hussle of changing servers to platoon up.

And if one day players come back remake EU2 again

 

Thanks

I just logged in to check how many that were online, 96k+ people and peak hours have just started so it will most likely rise a bit more before people go to bed, so no I don't agree with you. However one idea may be to merge the servers or something similar during none peak hours.

Like Bracciano said, it didn't work well when we did it on the NA....       What did Quit because of the Game itself, Quit because their Pings went well above Playable for them.....     

 

Chicsgo, while fairly close to Centrally Located, was too far for most Players to get an Acceptable Game out of ....      Mostly West Coast too seemed Hardest Hit and Rural Areas that were Close to a Main Server....      I'm not sure you want to Combine both EU Servers, not from my Experience....

I doubt it'd be practical to merge the servers during off hours.

True that, but there are ways to make it work and it would improve MM during those hours of the day/night, is it worth the hassle and effort well that's another question.

I have seen some people claim that the better players are on EU2 because it's the server where clan wars are played.

Do players still even use EU2 ?

Pretty sure that isn't possible,at least,not on physical terms. Given if you know, how a server operates....

128k players yesterday, too much for a single server.

I thought when they ran that x5 but only on EU1, it might be because they were thinking of cutting down to 1 server and presumably cutting costs a bit.

Don't be so lazy, 

Also, don't base your suggestions on 1 server at a particular time of day. Check a bit and think before you post.

I don't think WG tech guys would like the idea of having to stop a server, explain to the players why their game is being disrupted, then wait for the player population to rise (about an hour later), redstart the downed server, announce it to the players, and then do the same again the next time the population drops, all to save YOU and your platoon from changing servers manually.

And the players whose game gets interrupted wouldn't be please either.

Sure it's getting warmer and warmer outside. Thus the population drops. But having 2 different is still not a bad idea. As when there is an event like this. You don't want all the yolo mission farmers on one server. As with 2 you have one that's a bit better than the other. And you can change depending on how it works. And there is also a ping issue. Not everyone has the same ping on both. And being forced to play on the one with the worst ping because the other shutdown is not ideal either. As NA did notice when they did merge theirs. As not everyone lives close to both servers to get the same ping.

By "one day" you mean 30 mins after you posted?

Including merging EU 1 and 2 WG should also include RU servers form the non-asian/european/kalingrad/st petersburg part of russia too.

You don't have any evidence for this.

And before you come back with "But the MM is crap", you have no evidence that increasing the number of players would alter the outcome of the MM algorithm.

Says the guy who isn't in a clan.  I play very few games on EU1.  During the day, at the weekend, I often specifically play on EU1 because at ALL other times I use EU2.
