I am a prerelease player that moved from Regulus to Aldebaran after server lockdowns because none of my friends could join. The difference in population was apparent the moment I entered the server and it’s only gotten worse. Most areas in Aldebaran only have 1 channel and even then the channel isnt yellow. There is barely enough people to do chaos gates or ghost ships. I have failed multiple ghost ships already due to insufficient amount of players. Most islands only have 5 players at most if any at all. Even at T1/T2 world bosses, there are only 5 people participating in them.
I’m sure that many other servers created after launch are having the same issue and I am requesting a merge sooner rather than later. It really isnt fun playing in a server that feels deserted.
