There are not enough people playing this game and the amount of servers make the game seem very empty which can be very boring.... With paid instances and now the new update with mining, there really is no need for competing anymore other than through slayer, but the slayer would be more profitable again as well....



Upvote if you agree we should reduce the amount of servers


I really think 10-15 servers are enough

As long as there are any cases of obnoxious crashing that would remain (such as slayer), and as long as the servers can't handle more than ~300 players without starting to lag (not to be confused with the lag some players have due to their own ISP), reducing the amount of servers shouldn't even be considered. If you want to be social, hop over to one of the populated worlds, and if you don't want that, pick a quieter server. Both types can already choose accordingly, so reducing the amount of servers and the problems it'd cause wouldn't be worth it at all.

No such thing as "upvoting" on the forums; did you mean to post this to Reddit?

Are you insane? That'd mean that quite literally every server would be capped at 2k players on average. The amount of server lag, player lag and people crashing each other would enormously damage the game.

No.
Some things still have quite some competition and reducing the amount of severs will only make it worse.

This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

No support. I actively search for worlds that are not populated when I log in so I can try and avoid other players.

Also like you already posted OP, slayer would be a disaster if there was only a few worlds

Agreed.

No support.

They have polled this time and time again and it always gets worse results than the last.
