My thoughts on this i have never posted on however,
if a realm is over populated then there should be a fair malus for new players
IE: syrtis has 50% more players
therefore there should be a 10% malus making them earn 5% less on xp/rp/gold for the realm average
It is an easy equation to fix in the programming language and would eventually balance realm population
Obviously this should also reflect on active realm players
that aside i have always played on Ra/Alsius, and the issue of an overpopulated realm was never an issue
They used to say if an infinite number of chimps typed we would get the works of Shakespeare, the internet has proved this is NOT the case...
