I'm sure that you have a discussion about this privately, but speaking publically as the greater French nation here...

It appears that Represailles is dissolving and Flat Earth is moving to Rackham.

I would say with about 75% certainty that La Compagnie will be moving to Antigua. The French community there is small and dedicated, a bit like our our old Bonny during better times. Most folks seemed friendly and fun, from what I could tell, though it is clear they have very few RP aspirations. We might run into a bit of bias the way we used to with the "carebear" label that the RPers all had to work to shed, since they're clearly not accustomed to RPers being out and about, and may still be under the mistaken illusion that we do little other than sit in Grenville tavern. But here's hoping it goes a bit smoother now that everyone's higher level and the entire world's been shaken upside down.

What is Highland's thoughts?

The general concensus so far seems to be Antigua. My experience there last night after making a bit of a nuisance of myself on Nation (on purpose) was not negative at all, and I got some /tells from RP'ers begging us to come to Antigua.

Hew had similar positive reactions, and the focus on Rackham seemed to be all around how much help we'd give them in the map contest, and be damned to RP.

I got very much the same impressions and responses. I think we could all be of use there.

Sov Coop and STORMSAIL are coming along to Antigua, most of the major pirates societies are not. Still not hearing anything official from Spain, they may be making their move on a national scale.

Greetings from Roberts here. I saw your post on our forums, and I wanted to provide you with some more information about our server to help you make the decision.

I see that you attach alot of value to being able to RP without being looked down upon. On the French side we have at least one RP society called La Flotte Royale des Colonies, it is a French speaking society though. There are alot of French speaking players on our server and that might improve immersion. I can also tell you that the British have mixed US/EU RP society called Saint George Squadron of the White.

I'm sure you will be welcomed and treated with respect here. You also shouldn't let the EU tag scare you away, we have plenty of players that play late at night.

I realize we can't force you to come here, but we hope you'll consider it. I hope the information I've given helps you make your decision easier.

The St. George were our RP arch enemies in Beta. I almost joined them before I found HC.

Firmus and I talked it over last night and think Antigua is the better choice. I've tried alts on many servers before I made my home on Bonny - France. I have and French alt I started with on Rackham and leveled a bit as my first character.

Roberts would be nice, but the eventual move to a Europe location of the server could pose lag problems in the future. Firmus and I also have a bit of time invested in spaniards on Roberts that I would hate to give up.

Antigua seems to have a more mature crowd from my experiences there (Actually have a Brit alt there but very young. Will probably delete him today and move my young Naval Officer from Bonny to lock in my transfer access.)

Our guild leader is currently a little tied up with other matters and since there are already a number of our members really leaning towards Antigua, I just made that the official "tentative" choice of the HC. Simply meaning that I asked that we hold off just a bit longer to allow other members to weigh in before making our final decision but it looks like the HC will be moving to Antigua!

See you there Chantilly (probably)!

We'll be making our final call tonight, but I think it's a pretty safe bet we'll be sharing seas.

Vanguardia (Spain) and Glastonbury (Pirates), the other two major RP guilds, just committed to Antigua. So the decision's been very much made.

It sounds like FLS is considering letting all the RP guilds move to one server to keep our community. There are a few posts by Joe about the consideration as well as possibly officially naming one server the RP server.

It is near the last page of:

http://www.burningsea.com/forums/showthread.php?t=24760

Since it sounds like most of the RP guilds are moving to Antigua I hope that is the one they decide.

Sounds like something they should have decided on/put into place before opening up transfers.

Here are the relevant posts:

Letting the French, Spanish, & German speakers move to Roberts might even out their population balance. Forcing some to choose one of the US worlds isn't a happy choice for those players.
We are looking into doing something very much like this. It's going to take a few hours to get it all figured out, but expect to hear more about it later today.

If its the first, as much as I realize and do appreciate why you'd do it, its going to majorly suck to split people up like that. if its the second, it'll at least be tolerable. Hopefully, my society decides quickly, so we can get alts transfered. Most of our mains have worked too hard to get to the map win to transfer away 4 days before it happens.

Edit: I saw elsewhere that someone said it was clarified to the second one. If so, I missed it, and ignore this
I'm awake!

25% is an approximate number. We don't really care if the remaining servers end up 30%, 30%, 20%, 20% instead of 25%, 25%, 25%, 25%. What we want to prevent is 50%, 20%, 20%, 10%. If a huge percentage of the players go to one server that server will be overloaded and the others could still be underpopulated.

The caps are there to keep things from being wildly out of whack, not to enforce some kind of ideal balance.

Joe, at the very least is it possible to get a commitment from FLS that if an individual society runs up against the limit you'll help us get our remaining players over to our chosen server despite the limits? Or that if we will wholly unbalance that server due to our size that you'll work with us to determine another server we can fit our entire society on?

We have individuals who have been playing together for a long time (since beta) or even earlier games and have forged friendships in game. They would be pretty upset if they couldn't stick together as a group.

This one just as additional info:

Any ideas people?

--------------- From http://www.burningsea.com/page/news/...ticle_id=10753

What happens to my society?
In addition to resetting your friends list, if you are a Society Leader, transferring your character to a new server will reset your Society list as well. In order to assist Society Leaders with the task of keeping track of Society members, we have created the /dumpsocietyinfo command. Society Leaders using this command will create a file containing a list of your Society members titled societyinfo.csv,which can be found in the Pirates of the Burning Sea directory in your My Documents folder
This is unfortunately a known issue that TestCo & DevCo have been working hard to solve. Currently, the workaround is to have another member of your society run the command, as anyone in the society has the ability to do so, and hopefully it will work for them. Please feel free to file a support ticket about that issue as well.

I have been gone only a few days and honestly have not a clue what or why is going on with server stuff but it sounds like HC is moving to Anty.

I am going to make the transfer and hope that is the right thing to do.

*sigh* Walks off trying to figure out why FLS makes life so damn complicated.
