I was part of the latest wave of server merges and I am of the opinion that Evony screwed the proverbial pooch on this one. They merged 2 servers into a super server. Now the server is like a ghost town. 300 miles for attacks???
Even porting into other states attacks are still over an hour away in most cases. I am not counting the unaligned people as they are either inactive or not worth attacking as they have nothing in the way of resources or troops.
I also see quite a few dead players that got brought over in the merge.
Personally all the zero popped players should have been co-located in one area designated the Evony graveyard.
I think when they merge 2 servers they should leave the dimensions the same.
Super servers should be left for 5 or more servers merging.
3 and 4 servers should stay on the same size maps.
This is just my opinion though. It is not the opinion of the dozens of people I have seen quit in the past week.
