    Well, drakensang have so many servers but, only grimmag and heredur is active with many lobbys and pvp! my sugestion is : Unification of All "Dead Servers" like aghaton,tegan,balor in 2 servers of PVE and 1 big server for pvp.

    With this change in servers will have so many lobbys, somy groups, so many pvp!

    Bigpoint shoud have done this long ago already. its good for the game to unite the servers.

    Game has to expand, not to shrink.

    They should fix some burning issues and run a big ad campaign instead, aimed especially (but not limited to) the geographical areas corresponding to the underpopulated servers. Trust me, it'd fill those servers in no time if done properly. But they have to fix the game first, or those people would quit again.

    Players play those servers for a reason,, ping test,, language barriers etc..... you shut down those servers force those players to other servers they will quit. Guy in Australia gets a better ping in the USA servers then Europe servers. All the Indo, Aussie, NZ that entire part of the world could not play. Europe to far away for them.
    So you would add nothing by consolidating you would lose players.

    I am in the United states and doubt would play a European server.. I choose Tegan for the ping test. Tegan my MS is 25-30 average.. tried other toons on European servers,, my MS go's to 75-150. They would lose a good deal of the US, Mexico, South America, Canada players as well. The Europe servers would not grow they would stay the same. Bigpoint would just lose the revenue from the USA servers.

    Then toss in the language barriers. Isolate some guy from his friends spread them across three servers. Play on a server where a guy speaking Spanish now on say a server that speak primarily German. They won't stay.

    But knowing the direction Bigpoint has taken the game they will probably do it. They destroyed PVP it is zero fun now, they are in the process of destroying events now,,, so sure I imagine they will destroy the servers as well.

    And here is why you can't just consolidate servers:

    You can not unite, but allow players to switch to another server. The Balor-PVP server is a dead server. Surprisingly, in order for the PVP to go to the PVE server!

    It's hella work and it's not worth it.

    I'll repeat, they only need to fix the critical issues (eg. lack of balance) and then advertise the game strongly. Those servers would repopulate again in no time.

    Even if BP decide to merge dead servers,i dont think that will help much with the decline of DSO.Instead of trying to improve DSO,BP is trying to get more money from players.Just for the record i have a lvl 55 mage on tegan server with 200ms latency always (PVE only).
