Ok so, might cop some flakk for this, but anyway.
A couple of mates of mine and I, who used to run a long term ECO server, have had issues with player abandonment, and when we jumped to other servers we had issues with mismanagement. So we came to an idea,
How would the ECO community feel about a Single Shard, or a limited shard server system? So, more public servers, or a subscription cost for running a server? In the case of the later, pay SLG $15 a month to run a server. Free to play on the server for players, but actually running the server costs directly to SLG.
With the kind of player number requirements that we've seen ECO *need* to function smoothly, we reckon it'd help the game a lot if the number of servers were reduced and thus, player concentrations increase.
Idk, we are a bit of a unique group. But we're curious about how the community at large feels!External link →
