To be clear, i am one of the players that said yeah these older worlds A,B,D,E,F,G,H,I even J probably best to combine them and create new 1 or 2 new servers to combine them or flow into more active server such as colorado or kansas. But it has been indicated by CM that they will close few at time and review will be in new year. Houston is one of the handful worlds where there is guaranteed daily battles. Know silly to say please allow migration into this worlds or that but was very disappointed to see that houston taken off list, even when there are people asking to go to houston. I am very sad to hear about galv and houston up for review, galv being my first server, and in its glory days .. dang it was great server where learnt so much from great players .. but realisticly totally understand the rational that for inno it is about the numbers, and money and that makes sense. Houston on other hand is few dozen less players then other worlds of "active players" where thee is rare ff's low market activity, kinda chore even to get crafts to do quests whereby Houson is
pretty much guaranteed daily battles, friends chat daily in ff's, and lately we have had extra nice of happy chatter in saloons with opposing team. But this
isnt the review of what worlds up to be closed, so will be only post to speak of why would like to see migration open to go to houston.
* So all that being said, know helen and odders both asked about migration into houston and hope can be reconsidered. Please advise (recognize Aug 9 coming soon).
* Also recognize that this thread kinda got off topic. Tbh we saw it was about W1 closure and where they would go. Totally felt for the bit of sadness of
saying goodbye to a server. I know people i have met in YIP Badgers WK and in AZ mean a great deal to me so offer my thoughts of not easy. My hope is you talk to people about the different servers. Every player likes game for different reasons and each world offers different things.
* With the thread going bit off topic, it came as pretty big surprise about galv and houston up next for review next year. Tbh heard people admit they kinda
stopped reading, heard it in colo saloon and came rushing back. I dont know if all players in houston and galv are even aware. But also recognize that this
thread is not to advocate to close or not close galv or houston but rather to speak about W1 and where they can migrate to. Sp hoping if need to either speak strongly for or agains houston and galv maybe a new thread be created, so we are mindful to the W1 players and not battling here, and to invite those that are and we dont go on another off topic thing as before
Other stuff may find interesting, that may not be reflected by looking at active players alone (who says size and frequency dont matter!!

(quick note: 7 awesomia dig in initiated by inno, some worlds would of meant no digs if no awesomia, houston, idaho, juarez likely regular battle would
replace awesomia if not dug, houston stated goal was 1 daily battle pretty close to reached, idaho and juarez had several battles during event plus other days multiple battles, houston trend increase in overall numbers, idaho fluctuates little then bigger battles, juarez trend decrease in overall with gap)
