I have to be honest, I agree with some of the players, we are not trying to make new shards. We have made a few exceptions that you are allowed a house on siege and a house on a production shard to bring in new players. We would never make another shard with Siege ruleset that would be cutting off our nose to spite out faces. Not to mention all the headaches it would cause for the Developers when creating new systems. I know a lot of players has asked for a legacy shard. Even that is really difficult to do but if we were to do anything I would vote for that.
