I need my pikachu line stickers for these threads, the laughing pikachu would be absolutely perfect right about now lol.
We have had multiple "epona like" servers over the years. I believe at one point there were 3 servers with basically identical rules. 2 of them completely died out because people kept xfering to dom clan servers, and epona was only one to survive. Since then Epona has picked up players because well, frankly, it is the only one left. Since then we have had 2 other servers try to be open, and both collapsed and eventually had to turn into dom clan structures to survive.
Epona has lasted because it is active and because it is unique. Other servers that have tried to do the exact same thing have collapsed because people who go to Epona want Epona exactly, not many wanted a quieter Epona.
I get some of you are newer players and its easy to just "ok boomer" this post (Even though I'm only 22 ._. ) since I've been around since 2012, but take a moment and look at relevant examples from the game's history and don't just keep spamming these posts.
Taking this into account there are two solutions, but for optimal results they really both need to occur:
1) The lag and log in issues need to be fixed. This is something legitimately every server faces, from the smallest to the largest, in very close and similar magnitudes. It is not due to Epona's size but rather just a lot of people logging in for one boss. Even if only 20 people are logging in, it can still create the issue. Thus the issue needs to be solved across the game, not just thinking its isolated to Epona.
2) Supply and Demand: For those of you on Epona who want an Epona 2, why didn't you xfer to Nuada or the other servers whose names are escaping my tongue (or fingers I suppose) atm. You chose Epona for the same reason everyone else chose Epona over the identical substitutes. As such, creating a "new server" won't solve the issue, the only thing that will is low drop rates coupled with too many players encouraging some to xfer to the substitutes, hopefully before they collapse. And if not, xfering there anywhere and trying to bring it back.
So let's end these threads please...
A) Epona is not broken, the game has issues
B) Epona is not magical, it is however unique and that by every economic model explains its survival over the years
C) Epona generates the most plat purchases per server because it has the most people ._.
D) Let's focus on the whole game instead of pretending the game revolves around a single server
