    Some of those servers need merging badly. I'd hate to be in those servers.

    This'll lead to people hoarding channels that are prominently used as well as epic prices, rusted and b4 keys spiking afaik on top of what was previously mentioned. In before the cc please memes.

    LOL, have fun doing your Lumiknight quests, with 60 channels it was easy to avoid most players being in the same map.

    I believe that they increase chest spawn rate to compensate for the reduced channels. Rusted keys price will in fact decrease, by a large margin.

    MS2's population dropped severely, and thus there's no point in Nexon wasting money on unnecessary server resources. It's not to "punish the players".

    Well even though it's not to punish players it definitely will and with every patch they have pushed so far they seem to punish us players vs bots meso sellers and buyers >.<

    Another pointless complaint thread. halving the channels isn't going to change anything.

    Of course it is. Pet farming for one. I don't know how the spawn rate works, but right now it's bad enough having to cycle through 60 channels to find the pet spawns (esp. on pets that ONLY spawn in one place) but at least with 60 channels you have a higher chance of both finding a spawn and finding a spawn without competition. 28 channels in Ludibrium Crater or Boulderwhite Cliffs will hurt for the dailies.

    I don't see the problem.

    The only problem is that you are complaining about the server huge decrease. This is NOT a problem. MS2's population has decreased so much, and it will be too costly to keep those big servers open.

    So this thread needs to be locked.

    Treva - You might actually have to go and kill people in PvP maps. Oh dear.

    World Boss - Since I don't typically play at peak times, I can't really comment on this one. With Fair Fight on all bosses, off peak hours tend to be "kill ch 1" and go do something else. I'm sure peak times go through at least 28 channels, by your implication?

    Gold/Wood Chests - Never had to cycle through more than 30 channels. There's plenty of "good" maps to go through.

    Look on the bright side. At least we will see more bots in each channel, giving us the illusion that the population is healthy.

    You know if you kill things for like, a couple minutes max, pets will spawn, right?

    Doesn't matter if people are taking up all the channels.

    Honestly didn't know how much/if that affected it. As I said I was unsure how the spawning worked. It will still affect the types of zones I mentioned for the dailies, but won't likely impact the other zones where pets are a non-issue. Thanks for the info!


    That being said, I 100% understand why it's being done, and in the end... Nexon saving money on servers will save the players some money for a while (there shouldn't be a drive to up prices or add speed to the inevitable P2W system)

    I just wanted to acknowledge that yes SOME stuff will be affected by it, whether or not there is a large impact.

    Based on my observations, when there are more people in the map, more hungry pets spawn. It may not be a bad thing for pet farming. Not sure about the bosses situation. But look at that 6k daily users graph, I'd think at least 20-30% are bots... lol
