Ok so Not EVERYONE is a Alpha Tribe member. but a good chunk of those playing on official servers that are getting shut down are. Because in 90% of the cases the people on these super lowpop server that are getting shut down the server is run by 1 group. This group has gigas, Wyverns and everything else that is super end game and they don't even want to think that a group can join the server and might one day be able to knock them off their throne of being the best on the server so they wipe them over and over and over again untill that person or group of people leave the server. This is what Alpha tribes do. There are servers that have big tribes that rule the server but they arn't alpha tribes because they don't wipe out everyone else they enjoy people playing and enjoy having pvp matches. There was on official I can't remember which that had 2 large tribes with multiple gigas and they didn't kill everyone they even hosted pvp events. They setup arenas where small groups could go out and fight and the winner would get a mastercraft longneck rifle crafted for them. These guys I would love to see on a new server even if they kept everything they had because they made an official server fun to play on. They even on multiple occasions would watch a raid to make sure it didn't go to far. They would watch as a group broke into a base and stole stuff. If the group started to destory the entire base just because they would stop them and if they droped everything on the ground just to have the other group not have it the big tribe would go in collect the stuff and give it back to the raided person before it despawned. Thats what I want to call an alpha tribe and if I EVER made in on official I would either want to be on one that played like that or be part of one. If every Apha Tribe played like that it would be someone I would want to help defend in a big raid because thats the type of group I would love to see on a server.
Thank you WIldcard (No this isn't sarcasm) 90% of the people complaining about the old legacy stuff are literal alpha tribe members that are upset that the base they made from the tears of everyone else are being taken away. They complain that after they finnally made it so no new people will join a server and that their group is the only one that plays on it is getting removed. If they were nice about it and let pvp happen the way it should instead of wiping people constantly so that no one wants to play on their pvp server or pillar spam enough so that no one can build on their pve server then this wouldn't happen. IF your server was the nice server that had a large group of friendly players there wouldn't be any issues and everyone would be happy. As for the old servers not being linked to the new servers. Old servers are just that old. They have old saves that are likely going to be in a different format than what they want to put the new saves under to make it less corruptable also they want to make it so new people coming in won't have to worry about people day one on a new server having a full metal base with gigas and wyverns being max level. This is the best thing that could happen in my opinion. They didn't wipe the old servers and are only shuting down ones that only 1 tribe play on. On top of that they are putting them on a seperate cluster so anyone new coming in can now start fresh and not worry have to deal with alpha tribes already being setup and running that they have to worry about.
