WAR guild leaders hold conference on leaving the game

The crew at Keen and Graev's are in a bit of a dilemma when it comes to Aion Online. The situation goes like this: they decided a while back that they'd like to roll on the unofficial RP community since it tends to be more mature in nature. Unfortunately, many of the biggest and worst guilds from Warhammer Online's Pheonix Throne server (consistently the biggest RP server) have decided to leave WAR in exchange for Aion.

The WAR PT group stands apart from the already established Aion Roleplayers community. As a result, they've decided to choose an opposing server than the one the ARPers had agreed on. Due to their larger size, they will likely put ARPers server choice to rest and win the official poll in a landslide. So, the K&G boys have to decide: do they go with a smaller population and a better community or a big population and a worse community. It's a crappy choice.

Personally, I'm fine with either choice. RP will happen on either and I'm more than happy to add some deserving few to my ignore list. The bigger issue, in my opinion, is why so many guilds are planning on leaving WAR.

Have a look at this screenshot.

Mythic has had a shaky last year with this game. With several big releases on the horizon, they need to plan ahead for now for how they're going to handle the fluctuations in their community.

It's almost pointless to try to get their players to not try out the new games on the market. Even WoW isn't immune to player exodus when big titles release. For the sake of the game, I hope they have a few cards up their sleeve to bait these players back once they're gone.
