Play On Each Server?

Today in the Utopia Bugs & Suggestions forum, Mehul divulged the possibility of Swirve legalizing 'server-multis', and asked for the opinion of the playing public. If Swirve decides to make the change at some stage in the future, players would be allowed to keep a province on both the WoL and BF servers, without risk of deletion.

As a side-effect of the change, kingdoms would no longer be transferred between servers, meaning each server would become the permanent home for their respective kingdoms regardless of size or strength. Battlefields would also be opened up for new players wishing to join an established kingdom.

Public opinion so far seems to indicate approval of the idea, but is far from unanimous. We will have to wait and see whether or not Swirve goes ahead with the plan.

It will certainly benefit some and hurt some. As for an overall positive or negative effect, I'm not sure, only time will tell...

Big no.

Disregarding aspects regarding cheating/scripting/etc, the primoary concern is player interest.

If you have a honest player in 2 KDs (case of genesis and one normal server), activity is decreased on both.

MERGE BF and WOL into a single large server... if possible. That's the solution.

This is not a good idea.

I think we all agree that activity is the key to becoming good at utopia, and to be the best, one pours a lot of time into their one province. It is a sense of pride, nothing less, and a lot of time is spent maintaining their pride. Two provinces is extremely time consuming, and whilst a minority could handle it, the majority would abuse the legalisation. Utopia has a bad inactive problem as it is, once players realise they can only spend time on one province, the other one, and their kd will be neglected. You will see an unprecedented increase in inactives- mark my words- and the whole game of Utopia will be rubbish.
