This post was made at a time when there were substantially less kings, and they didn't anticipate many more coming out of the woodwork. They could handle missing out on a couple kings, but now they're losing at least one per server, and won't see any more.
mmm - i took it that the post was made 3 months ago when there were less kings in anticipation of exactly this moment in time
that there is an issue i fully agree with
i just don't believe saying 'hey everybody, ignore what the devs are saying and spend $10,000 regardless because i think they are wrong' is the way to go about it
problems i see:
if we say end up with say 9 kings on NA-E then what happens? - does each king end up with substantially less land than kings on other servers? (which trickles down meaning each duchy is considerable smaller, each county is considerably smaller meaning it can't support as many characters which in turns mean even trying to build a couple of towns within a county might be difficult, let alone a city etc - aren't you in effect punishing ALL of those players to accommodate a couple of individuals to whom the situation was made explicitly clear MONTHS ago?
do you open up another NA-E server to accommodate 3 individuals, and ignore the fact that you would then need to have another 100,000 players to populate that server (something they have said they would consider if the general population of players justified it)
do you open up another starting continent on NA-E with 6 kingdoms on each, which in essence means finding more players to populate each starting continent as per the scenario above
