Isn't it a bit excessive and over kill to have 200 channels hanging in a server? I get that people want to have a channel of their own buts it makes the game seems kinda dead if you see 5 people on in Ch 1 in the morning and night.

    When S2 was new, my guildmate and I noticed a bug:
    Our towns stopped showing other people. 100% solo RPG.
    Keyword: noticed. It went unnoticed for months.

    .

    I think 50 channels would be fine.

    Yeah I think cutting it back to around 20 would be nice. Even on release I thought 200 was ridiculous, and that's probably when we had the most people playing.

    Having a lot of people in the same channel lags like hell, due to lack of proper multicore support. Having 1 core being maxed out and lagging, while 7 cores idle is painful to look at.

    As long as there is enough to still have "Guild Channels" being a thing I 'd enjoy to lower it.

    If they can use those funds to solve a server merge scenario would be great tbh than lowering channel counts

    Condensing the channels down is just like a band aid, to the problem of the lack of players and the need for a server merge

    Anyone notice when they get kicked from Ein Lacher they are sent to a half channel? What I mean is you see some people of ch 1 and you can't see the others.

    It's hilarious that people ask for less channels whilst I'm just sitting around in my own paradise known as channel 0. :^)

    One thing these extra channels have done is give me private time to record video footage

    I don't really mind either way. I would rather they just stop sending you to other channels since I'm always being sent to 1-5 .
    That being said, they can probably reduce the amount to 50 or 100 without many players having an issue with it.

    Also I want to thank the OP for.making a pretty unbiased poll.

    I wouldn't say that, The third poll option seems snide and sarcastic to me, and he frames it by making his case without presenting a counter argument. Because calling something both "excessive" and "overkill" is unbiased and not redundant right?

    I wouldn't really object to there being 100 channels for the record, but imo, reducing the number of channels is pointless. There's still exactly the same number of people playing so you'll see the same absence of boats whether you jam everyone into a handful of channels or not. The only difference will be that you'll now be forcing people who lag terribly in crowded town channels to bear with increased lag. People who have been playing the game a long time already know that things are quieter atm than in the past and if your concern is new players the game automatically places them in lower numbered, more populated channels.
