Regional FlagFort Aspenwood PvP lobby deadSource

I’m currently not in any guild. But I’d like to start PUGs occasionally and do some free / paid tournaments.

Every time I login, no matter what time of day, the Mists lobby is totally dead. Theres 20-30 people in there max.

First, is the lobby server merged with the rest of the NA servers? If not, why shouldn’t it be?

Second, if it’s not merged, is there a server with a more active PvP population? Or is this generally how it goes on every server?

Yes, the lobbies are merged for game matching. Also, a lot of the lobbies I’m in seem dead now because a lot more people are playing paid tournaments. So they’re not waiting around in lobby for tournaments to start, they’re in game, so the lobby feels more empty.

The lobbies are merged for game matching = when you play a match all players on the same server (NA/EU) go to the same place.

:) You repeated what I said, and you’re correct! GJ!

Correct, the lobbies themselves are not merged, they only meet up when you go to play. You can still invite people across lobbies for games as long as they’re on your server though (Na or Eu).

I’m on Stormbluff now, and people are coming in/out of paids.

Don’t you see the problem with that?

Because Heart of the Mists are not merged, it is difficult for players to find and set up teams. If the lobbies were merged between Homeworlds, people can organize together more easily.

Totally see your point, I’m just explaining how it works so that everyone understands.

We have solutions to this coming down the pipe.
