#1 TIP TO SAVE THE GAME (lakoo read)

Sorry for the caps-lock but this is important. If you haven realized yet, the population of the Arcadia server is shrinking at an alarming rate as players that have played for years r growing bored. Why? Well the answer is easy. it isn't that the game is SOO outdated, or that the events are dull now. The reason is simply that we aren't GETTING ANY NEW PLAYERS! Yes ik we whine that noobs annoy us and that they are dumb but without them there is no new energy or joy in the game. Without them, smaller empires die out as pro players go only to top empires, and without any new players to fill the void in these empires ppl get empty, bored, and quit the game. Now you may wonder why no new players are coming and i can tell you EXACTLY why. Bosnia, the reason Arcadia is dieing is because the Bosnia server is listed first and so new player are MUCH more likely to join it instead. Dont believe me? look at your own data, which server are new accounts more likely to make a character on. If you dont believe that data then look at any other game with multiple servers released at the same time, (maplestory for example) the servers listed first have 10 to100 times the players as servers that are listed below. This just how our brains are wired to work. So if you want to save the Arcadia server i STRONGLY recommend you switch the listing of the servers so that Arcadia is the first new players see and are prompted to join. Of course doing this will decrease numbers in Bosnia if you do this permanently too but if you don't support Arcadia as well then you will lose the server that owns and works of most of your fansites (empirejunkies, empirewiki, empireonline comic, ect), and the players that are most active in helping to assist the community his game has. Im not saying to permanently switch the severs so that the Bosnia server dies for Arcadia's sake, but you need to switch the order of them on occasion so that new players are encouraged to join Arcadia sometimes, and Bosnia at others. And you can switch them back and forth at your own discretion, but I will warn you now that if Arcadia isn't switched to be the one new players are encouraged to join very soon, then you may find that almost all of the servers players, along with its fansites and support, gone before the new year.

(and no, an event for Acadia only wont help, it will just annoy the Bosnia server and waste your time. Just about the only way to save Arcadia, is to have new players who are testing the app for the first time see Arcadia as the first choice. It is stupidly simple but it works.)

hope things go well for you guys

    Hi all, thanks for your feedback, especially the elaboration from RyuFang, which we have forwarded to the management for consideration, particularly on the occasional switch. Please let us know if you have more to share with us. Thank you.

    I have noticed it is not the user who selects the server the first time they play but the system. Maybe a sub routen for every 50-100 players then switch server with option to for other server.

    I highly agree. There was no need for the new server. I now feel like the server is empty. Seriously this is a big problem!

    The game is boring because they make an event boss very hard and only certain class/job combination win it. This game is so unbalance. Pls manage all the class.
