    So finally, Anet went and removed a tier, but they brought back that two link experiment which went so 'well'.

  • Links will go back to a 2 months rotation correct?

  • Positive that's has been cut a tier

    Mixed feelings about reducing 1 tier in EU. I have suggested this in the past. Feels weird. Wonder if the queues will be an issue, or not.

    Every EU server got a link. Piken may have gone the longest (or maybe Piken and Dzag). So hopefully they enjoy it / make the most of it.

    We'll see how it goes and report back. Fingers crossed.

    @McKenna Berdrow.2759... didn't you say around September 2016... that Baruch never ever would have a link? That German servers never ever would be linked with non-German servers?

    I can post the original "speech" you gave us here, if you wish. I have it saved.

    How feels to be wrong? B)

  • Finally! One tier less for EU. Took you long enough to do the right thing.

    I am speachless, feels weird being a host to a zheeerrg server. (i know many bandwagoned from BP to euro servers for what i have been told), still.. doubt we are more active.
    sometimes outside NA timezone nsp have like 3-5 players lol.. tsk tsk poor BP, maybe this will make nsp players play again :astonished:

    Vabbi is mostly void server now. The language racism from german links made it unplayable for Vabbi people for months, who could, did left to other servers. Only really few people are on Vabbi at this moment...

    ^^before it was: 27 to 15 -> 3 server without link
    now it's: 27 to 12 -> 3 server-tripple (if you want to avoid quadrupple)

    You cannot get 4 tiers without Tripple+.

    Is there any kind of limitations on transfers on the 3 vs 2 links or is it just normal population per world based?

    Because 2 international + 1 national combo seems like it's gonna be huuuuuuuuuge after a round of transfers...

    Early feedback from T1 EU reset ... big queues, to be expected I suppose. Not a lot of action in game except Team chat went nuclear over Brexit discussion. Every single keyboard warrior suffered typing injuries, I think.

    so wvw is not officially dying? Thats why we wont have any tier5 anymore?
    is this game so dead?

  • NA should have three tiers tbh, do that and expand map capacity and things should be much better on this side of the pond.

    I think that link is needed because we don't have ppl during the daytime because our real life schedule while international servers lack ppl at nightime. It would provide benefits for both sides. You think we like to play against 50+ ppl blobs on daytime when we're like 20? It's the same issue for both sides but at different hours.

  • @SWI.4127 said:

    Yeah, but this seems to be a recent thing, some update probably added content that is somewhat overloading he servers, nothing anet can't fix if they're willing to reduce the number of tiers.

    12 host servers and we always rotate between the same 4 and its not fun cause we end up in tier 4. oh look bg got a link even though they still dominated most tiers they were in when they actually logged in and played

    Monkey changed servers? He used to be on DB. He was our own little piece of crazy then too. You either love him or hate him. <3

  • Excuse someone who doesn't WvW much but, what does that mean?

  • International links were a mistake. Please keep national servers together, people are actually transfering away rather than play with the french. Both parties would prefer it this way too.

  • what time does the re-link actually happen today?

  • Name and shame any person or guild transferimg to DR because of the link?
