I just went to the Central Trade forum to see what kinda trading might be going on for LS, when I see this: I was only slightly peeved that 3-4 shards were being crammed into a single trade forum. It was frustrating to see the absolute perfect ring for sale, then realize it was on a different shard. I was able to cope though, as there were only a couple other shards to sift through. Now they go and do this and make it even worse! If we could freely trade among these shards with no extra costs, it might make sense to merge them. Now I have SEVEN different shards worth of posts to filter through, including one I can't even transfer to. This means possibly going through page after page after page of posts trying to find stuff on my shard. The part that really gets me is the "I hope this is more satisfactory." How would it be?! Did people really ask for this? This, coupled with the bombing of the old Stratics boards kinda reminds me of when EA blew up Haven and replaced it with what we have now. I really see no benefit to having the shards grouped together like this. Am I missing something?
