Well, this forum's largely a graveyard anymore, with only the occasional visit by wannabe shit-stirrers and attention whores. It usually isn't worth the trouble.

Actually, the population has increased enough that they are talking about starting a new server. These boards however, are mostly dead.

I doubt it's due to population increase. EMarr population is in the dumps anyway. They are trying to let players choose the server type hoping to spark some interest was my take on it.

Yeah, Emarr's dwindled to what? 5 or 6 raiding guilds? I remember the days when being one of the top 5 or 6 was quite an accomplishment =(.

Few more than 5-6 are actively doing some raiding at some level.
A few other smaller ones

It may look like we're small but from someone who works across many of the servers, we're actually much better off from a raiding guild perspective for level of raiding we do than many servers, even some with higher 'grouping population'.

But that's just a comment on the raiding part, not the grouping part.

This server has 2 two many raiding guilds on it so the top 1-2 are ALWAYS stuck NOT close to the top of SW progress.

Has ALWAYS been the problem on this server.

Reviction, even at the TOP was still like 14th SW progression wise.

There if you took 1-2 of the lower raiding guilds core and spread them into the TOP few this server would be HIGH end.

IE - its NOT the population that is low its the fact that its spread out.

First off, am I right in assuming this is Middie? There are 6 pages of characters starting with "Mid" on Erollisi Marr (and 3 letter names aren't possible through normal character creation), but Middie is the only one over 75 and is in Reviction.

Anyway, I just don't agree that distribution is the only reason Erollisi Marr isn't ranked high serverwide. Years ago, we had several high end guilds, lots of competition, and our upper guilds still had a pretty strong reputation among raiders serverwide. Even if all the guilds merged, there's no guarantee that Erollisi Marr would be on top. Everyone can't be on top, and sometimes it's as simple as someone else being better or luckier.

Think about it. There are currently 21 normal servers. Each server has more than 1 high end raiding guild. Let's be conservative and set that number at 2. Hypothetically speaking, that means there are 42 high end raiding guilds across all standard rule servers. Ranking 14th out of 42 isn't exactly being stuck at the bottom of the list of top guilds. Furthermore, there seem to be more than 2 guilds competing for the top spot on most servers, so the list of top guilds is likely longer than 60. Are you really worried about not being #1-5 on a serverwide list?

Mid,

When the 'low population' came up at first it was referencing grouping. I.e. folks not being able to find people on /lfg or /general to fill out groups or make groups. It wasn't really about raiding perse.

You got at what I was driving at that we have a large # of raiding guilds at a higher level (not cutting edge but higher level) for our population than quite a few guilds that used to have higher raiding guilds than us but who collapsed.

Numbers are spread out but when 4 of the top 5 guilds are fielding strong numbers, I'm doubting they'd suddenly collapse to become some powerhouse.
