Cristalyan.5728 Posted October 9, 2019 Share Posted October 9, 2019 One of the most used arguments for the actual state of the WvW (no matter if in US or EU) is the population inbalance. The Alliance system, working in the same way as the actual Server system will change nothing. Maybe it will bring some money to ANet before WvW perishes. A (possible) method to address the imbalance (and the other big problem - the coverage) is to keep the actual linking system and to always link an US server with an EU server - only for WvW. In this way, due of the time differences, no matter the hour, the map will be populated and you will find fights - this is the coverage problem. The population problem ... HM. I bet that the most interesting matches will be in T2-T4. But I think we can find an eventual balance even here.I know, the databases for the two regions are on different servers. But a system for keeping the evidence of a player apartenence to a server exists (It may be a flag - different for each server). That means it is possible to have "neutral" separate servers containing 4 maps where a player will be redirected when pushing the WvW button - no matter on what region it is. The actual megaserver system will remain only for PvE. The technical problems are difficult, but nothing is impossible and this can be a start of the long awaited WvW rework. We can hope, the ANet developers (when allowed to do their job and not when forced to .... fulfill the marketing Dept. orders) are very skillful. I saw how two devs. from ANet not only maintain the old GW1 but they even updated it working on their free time. And they migrated the old GW1 servers on the Amazon cloud - so, we can be confident that ANet have the technical skill to do this. We only need to have the administrative support, too. Because even without being an expert, I suppose this method costs some money. Also, we may expect some language problems for such links, but I think we experienced them already, so, I think, this is not so game-breaking, What do you think?
