    Well, I logged on at 1100 CEST and we had the TR completely gated and NC held 2 territories adjacent to their gate. So the lock looks like it's an 1045 CEST job. It's early morning, for a sunday, but not really alarm clocking.

    That's tremendous. Now we just need to stop anyone from warpgating us and we will be looking at another month of uninterrupted Indar ownership!

    Let us celebrate with a round of Space Giraffe!

    I sense some epic Scarred Mesa Skydock defenses on the horizon!!!

    As for this whole Miller thing, i personally feel like this talk is a bit unnecessary. I enjoy being the underdog. If you can even say we're the underdog. We still manage to pull our weight and make big impacts. It's just when it comes down to a huge TR force that we get into any real problems... Don't get me wrong though, the situation is only going to deteriorate, so i agree there needs to be the inevitable merge.

    If there were to be a merge, (being speculative here) an outfit of our size might have some problems getting everybody on during alerts. Likely alleviated by the 4th continent, sure. But even then, there are so many things to factor in, such as other outfits, if the other server is more 'Noob friendly', the combined faction pops.

    Ideally it would be with a similar or lower pop EU server. That way it might lesser the impact. You have to remember, if Miller gets merged, that means the huge numbers of TR come along to, and not only that, but they add onto the other merger TR pop... Vanu willing the chosen server has a larger VS pop. At least that way it might even out and be a nicer fit!

    My experience is that its fine in prime time as populations start to even out anyway and pop limits mean its always possible to find a fair fight. Outside of prime time however the pop difference can get to the point where its ruins my enjoyment of the game.
