Tera's 18 servers get merged into three

Things continue to look bleak for developer En Masse's action-RPG MMO Tera, as it announced that the MMO's servers would be merged from 18 to just 3, one covering PvE, another PvP, and the other a roleplaying server.

This follows a round of layoffs at En Masse.

According to an open letter by producer Chris Hager, "We’ve got several metrics to measure server activity—and many of ours are below the mark. We’ve also been listening to the issues our players have been having in the game: lack of resources, lack of groups, extended wait times for dungeons, and so on. We feel that the best way to address these problems is to increase the number of simultaneous players on our servers.

“Where some might look on this as a negative, I feel differently. By combining our servers, we facilitate a more unified community and give players a more full, alive world where finding groups, locating rare items (for lower prices), and getting into dungeons quickly are the norm. Most importantly, combined servers will allow us to run more regular, player-focused events where we get to interact with our players.”


One of the surest signs of a struggling MMO is the merging and/or cutting of servers.

I really don't understand this swath of MMO's appearing and failing one after the next. WoW, while ailing, is still a behemoth and all they do is copy it. When will they learn?
