Considering how much people flock to Jack and how they break the layers capacity I would say, no.
Adding more layers or servers to displace the volume of people would be tricky since, as I said, people flock to a sighting on Jack.
That and with the introduction of more servers/layers equals more chances of Jack appearing throughout causing a rather unbalanced mix of people so one or all sides would face the lack of needed people to take on Jack.

We did it in 2010 with 3 servers just fine.

People complain about the lag and layer issues no matter whether we have 2 or 3 servers, events or not.

Yes but with events, it would make sense that more people come out and flood the servers and layers.
Then again if they avoided the events because of the lag someone else could share that same thought and stay away too?

Trying to cater to the minority that complains no matter what happens is never a good direction to go in.

I look at it this way, If people dont like the event becuase of the "event lag" then they shouldnt get on, They should NOT however try and ruin it for those of us that DO like the events and will put up with the lag to collect loot for recipes from the past events smile

Dear Owlie,
Why don't you ever plot to take over Gaia H.Q.?

I suggest the act of "flooding".
As in, next ATA, gather a bunch of friends (around 20-50) and constantly post zOMG Halloween related requests and questions, blocking all other questions and feedback and getting them lost in the storm of requests of a similar nature.

It leaves an unsatisfactory taste in the admins mouths but leaves an impression of the importance of the issue.

I've been thinking about doing something like that. I don't know how effective it would be but at least they would realize we really want it.

It pisses them off.
When E CORP did it to bring EB back, it caused Pan to pitch a fit and leave his computer.
We got the Easter Bunny back that year though.

A warning for flooding: They'll start to overlook the questions or ignore questions asked and pick them apart. Hiding a "slightly relevant but unrelated" question in there allows them to skimp around it.
