first off, and before anyone jumps at my throat: i think that the ideal scenario is new server(s), meant for the eu/na population. now, and this is what i think innova should know: if somehow you guys doubt there will be enough eu/na population in the long run to make at least one server offering a great experience, i believe that there are options other than simply not opening servers and keeping things as they are. a) open eu servers that you know you can merge.... with ru servers down the road if needed. yes, we'd be a lot behind, yes gaming with russian is often a very difficult/frustrating experience (but then again, bad blood on a pvp server = awesome things happening). and either way, that's still better than nothing offered for eu/na players. you'd just have to make ru servers playable from an english client. probably not too difficult to achieve. b) if you're even less sure you got enough customers for eu servers, and think it's pointless to open some that you'd have to merge with ru servers very soon, well, then simply release an english client to get started on existing ru servers. a little advertising to go with it and you'd get something interesting going. my point is, there are many ways to get us happy. some are better than others, but if you feel the best option isn't achievable, it's a lot better to settle for an option that'll still make many customers happy, than just letting us all down. again, new eu servers would be ideal. but that's just food for thoughts.
