Ok, we've all seen more than enough Asura bashing and warnings to fill a lifetime....perhaps the reason returnees rush there and people flock there is more than just a connection to the reddit....maybe the rest of us on the small servers need to show why we like our little homes, and brag about them a bit!

For example, if you never want an Ambuscade wait, always having empyrean weapon item camps to yourself (even during campaigns!), and a lack of merc shouts, Leviathan might just be a great home for ya! Sure, we're not as big in the endgame scene, but that doesn't mean there isn't one, and people are very willing to give newbies and returnees a little help and a chance.

Yeah, we're small, but small town neighbors are always the ones you can rely on in a pinch. Small servers are much more about relationships than prowess and gear. So if you're just missing the connections made, perhaps that's the right environment for ya.

much appreciate the comment, but the irony is not lost that the 1st comment is from an Asura account (possibly you're not still on that server just still using your original account I know, its just humorous)

asura is the best no question, unless you count server hopping to transfer items for profit

We like things a little slower on Lakshmi. Cold iced tea, lazy afternoons rockin` on the porch.

Can get a bit dangerous.. The teenagers sometimes sneak up on to McGregors Farm to nick apples. Local kids sometimes get too close to my lawn.

Its not all work here, though.. In the fall we have the harvest festival and a barn raisin' every so often as well. And momma makes moonshine in the goat barn.

Lakshmi is all right. Fine place for fine people.

Every time I see Bahamut posts I think of when my buddy transferred there cuz Antiquity sounded like it was gonna be the greatest thing ever and then... Alei took everyone's stuff and ran or something.

Lakshmi was a ghost town when I was there several years ago. I would shout for hours and get 2-3/6 people required to get anything done. I’d be shocked if any single box players can accomplish anything over there via pug scene. Hope homies back home are still doing okay!

I wonder if remnants of my previous yells are still echoing through the streets of Western Adoulin…

It comes in waves. A lot of it gets buried through the ungodly amount of bot/rmt shouts. Even with 2 spam addons loaded and 100+ rmt blocked, its nonstop garbage to sift through. And then there's also dozens of other people also shout watching just like you may be, so you have to respond quickly to shouts or you will get left out

@Buukki- kind of my desire with this post is to show players who want to be active there is more than Asura. Yes, you have to work to make it happen, and once some servers get so desolate during your play times, it can become impossible.

I just wonder how many others feel like its impossible, and if all those people went to a smaller server and worked together, they might have a better game experience than trying to sift thru those 100s of RMT shouts and such.

I don't advocate for people to come to Asura anymore. It all comes down to the person and your playstyle, what you're looking for, and what you can put up with. If you're the kind of person who wants to sit around and do nothing and wait for someone to set something up, it won't really matter where you go. Asura might be a better option for players to group up with, but there's still hundreds of players over here who haven't done modern content, despite the high population. You do have to collaborate anywhere you go. If you like setting up your own stuff, Asura is great for saving time because there's so many people to choose from. Also a great place to make money. Buying rare items is incredibly easy here now with trove.

There's also other major frustrations on Asura that are pretty unbearable. I.e. don't even swart farm during an Omen card campaign. Farming an empyrean boss like Apademak is infinitely more frustrating on Asura. Bots are everywhere. CP/SP camps are loaded most of the time. The pros and cons basically balance each other out.

Personally, I had to move off of the smaller server or I would have 100% quit. I have limited playtime and conflicting interests during certain peak seasons, so I need to be around active players at all hours of the day. So this just works for me. YMMV. I don't think advocating for Asura all of the time is the move anymore. Its definitely not for everyone (I personally enjoy it).

great points all of them. As was mentioned in an earlier post, I spent over a year on Bahamut (a much larger server than Leviathan) and met great people and got so much better faster because of the benefits of a large server. So its always a give and take like you point out.

I just sense that for years we only talk about the negatives of both types of servers ("Asura's so crowded you can't CP/etc","Leviathan's so small there's no one to do anything with", etc). And the benefits of a large server are of course pretty obvious, so maybe its time to talk a bit about the not-so-obvious benefits smaller servers can provide.


....Oh, and apparently Lakshmi has Sweet Tea. I might have to transfer.

Sidenote: my disdain for Asura originates like many stores of hatred and jealousy. See, Asura stole away Pandemonium, my birth server, like the new guy who marries your mom during "her change" after she leaves your dad.

I'm not calling you Dad, Asura!

Miss you Galka.

Lakshmi just wants you to rest your weary souls in her bosom.

RIP Fairy. Miss you. Ain't no shout drama like shout drama about Poof.

As for Asura...well, some of our servermates got Spike Flail nerfed, that's something I suppose?

Barely anyone plays the game really, even on Asura most people logged in are mules/RMT and/or AFK etc.

Just from these forums I'd say Bismarck is a cool *** server. Although having Vize is a PLUS! So sad he left.
