View Full Version : 1 Server? 2 Servers? 3?

As you guys may have remembered, Aeria had 2 Servers: onyx and sapphire. Sapphire was added due to a growth in population, but then they later considered a server merge that never happened before the game closed.

My question is: Would this game be better off with just one server or multiple servers.
All opinions are welcome.

Depends on what kind of support they have.

Starting with 3 and then merging down to 1 within 3 months seems to be a nice idea, provided they can actually do it fairly early and without problems.

If not... better start with just 1, let's not further split the community.

So far, i am estimating that we will have a population is around 300 people, consider the difference in time zone, i don't see why we need 2-3 servers. Most vendors who hosted the game had only 1 server for DOMO and if my memory does not fail me, sapphire had lesser population and my friend from that server told me most of them had to go solo when players in Onyx are partying.

I think 1 - 2 would be most reasonable. I feel that 3 would just be too much unless we get that many people.. but I doubt we will.
One when the game opens up, and if the server reaches its capacity then 2.

There's 2,400 likes on Facebook... did you mean 3000? I imagine with mules/afk'ers, we'd have at least 500 or so on at once at least.
I like having one server unless it gets TOO crowded. Sapphire was unnecessary if you ask me, or at least it was unnecessary at the time it opened.

I agree with what you said. ^^! I would like one server so I can get to know everyone better but I know 1 server means more lag depending on the number of people in it

1 server, because we can start playing game together. like at DoMO TW.
all in 1 LOL

Definitely agree only one server. Chinese version only has one server and it's doing fine.

Now...what do you guys think the server should be called?

So long as we have a stable or somewhat stable economy? Lawd Saphire had the cheapest prices of Aerias and TW

I'd rather not be paying anything over 350k for any clean costume.

I think the majority will be old players returning for the nostalgia. DOMO is a pretty outdated game.

Sure, but I doubt they'd open a server for 300 people, that doesn't make financial sense

I hope there will be just one to begin with, and finally Onyx and Sapphire can be united! :D
Would be sad to see that all the people on the forums split in two..

On the other hand, if they start just one and then add one later it will probably be like before where one server has loads of people and the other is struggling to find teams!
And with all the PR they are trying to pull I would not be surprised if there will be 2 servers, maybe it's for the best after all..

So honestly, I don't know what I'd prefer. I'm just gonna go with whatever Suba decides :P

I imagine DOMO isn't resource intensive for servers (especially 7 years on) so I don't see the downside in 1

I do think there should be only one server to start with, odds are that'll be all we need anyway, besides, I want to be on the same server as people I used to know so I can pester them~

As for server names, I hope they avoid Onyx or Sapphire like the plague... Seeing as their site has a lot of green on it, maybe Emerald? I dunno, not much thought went into that lol

I'd rather we started with just one. I feel like fragmenting our community to start with would be a bad idea. As far as performance on servers; Yeah, it's old so it likely won't take too terribly much, but it's also quite possibly badly optimized.

One server is always a better option, unless you don't have an option to increase the server capacity.

If we're going to name it though the GM's should hold a poll or something along the lines of the most popular names so far. My vote's on Onyx being one of those names.

Greetings,
In my opinion they should start of with just one server and see how many people actually joins in and plays.
If DOMO grows (it sure will) they should add another server, but I think it will be more than enough to have only one server within the first two or three months.

I think one server is more than enough for a start. that way we don't accidentally end up scattered in a different server from our friends from the go and we would have a more connected server that ain't super small? with names for servers, I'm just happy if they are related to the game :P

Agreed.
I think all the DOMOs started out with one. Aeria is the one that decided for another server.

It's funny that a lot of the ppl on the Onyx server thought that the Sapphire server was "pointless"... But in my opinion the Sapphire server is what made DOMO fun for me.

I started off in Onyx, hated the game and the community. And then when they opened Sapphire I moved onto that server. I loved the fresh start and really the new server is what made me fall in love with DOMO. If it wasn't for the second server I would have quit DOMO and never played it again.

So I'll honestly say that one server is good for a while but if there is a need for second server then I am all for it. But I doubt we'd need more than 2.

Depends on what kind of support they have.

Starting with 3 and then merging down to 1 within 3 months seems to be a nice idea, provided they can actually do it fairly early and without problems.

If not... better start with just 1, let's not further split the community.

I agree with this because once Sapphire server came out I felt like I lost contact with a bunch of friends who decided to switch.

I remember when sapphire first came out.

That's probably why more people migrated to sapphire and onyx became deserted.
