A message from McKenna Berdrow:

I want to update everyone on the design we currently are investigating to help achieve population balance between worlds, and the goals we hope this new World Restructuring system can achieve.

The goals of the World Restructuring system are:
  • Create great matches
  • Handle population fluctuations
  • Balance teams
  • Diversify WvW experiences

tl;dr

Highlight for me:

We also want to give titles related to the worlds on which players currently are playing when World Restructuring goes live.

So where will you guys go from here when it hits?

Our server's holding a meeting regarding the changes within a few days. I and Flukks both brought up the idea of trying to get the perspective of the lower tiers heard as much as possible in the discussion on restructuring. I didn't find any clear word on whether we get to name our own guild alliances, or how prominently they'd be displayed if implemented. Imagine an Ehmry Bay alliance, not treated as a second-class server any more but an equal to other server communities, like ours or Blackgate's.

We're probably going to utilize our forum as an alliance forum; y'all could consider restructuring the same way. At least now the trials of World Linking that severely ravaged all the lower-tier communities are finally going to be over.

It sounds vaguely like one guild in particular will "make" the alliance, and then can invite other guilds to it.  So I assume at the very least it will be identified by that guild's name, if not a custom name.

I still need to talk to the other guild leaders about plans.  It sounds like this is a long way off, though, so we've got time to get our ducks in order.  One potential issues is the size of the alliances, sounds like they might be somewhat small.  We can deal with that when we know more, though.

And yes, having some name recognition for the first time in forever would be absolutely fantastic.

I intend to (try to) utilize these forums as an alliance forum as well, with alumni and friends welcome as always.

This is interesting. I'd like to try and stick with the Ehmry Bay folks as much as possible.

Interesting.  One imagines that most of the smaller servers will each just form their own alliances, while the bigger servers will be forced to break up into multiple alliances.

I think... I think I... I.. like it?

That's basically where I'm at.  If they can figure out how to matchmake properly, this is probably exactly what World vs World needs.

Soooo, does this mean we may see you again someday? :D

Cross-posting this from Ehm C's post:

As a guild with Ehmry Bay literally embedded in its soul, the Ehmry Bay Stock Exchange volunteers to host an Ehmry Bay Alliance.  All are welcome to join.  We have a long time to go before we can actually set it up in-game, though.
