Well the game is dying. The merge is evidence of that. But the server losing 1/2 its members??? The server should actually have about 5X the amount of players it has now. Many are coming back to give it 1 last bang. I am guessing the population will be something like it was at the beginning.

There will be alot of people that are quiting due to this though, don't get me wrong there. Everything everyone has worked hard for, like owning a CH will be ripped from them, and the chances of getting another one are pretty slim. Some people won't like the PVP that is more then likely to start up, unless some ally makes a super power. I am hoping the server is at minimum 2 sided, and perhaps 5 sided would be a nice change. In the end, there will probably be at least 3-4X the amount of people on the server then there is right now.

A clan hall is not that great to have anymore. Forts to fight for enough and more fun too.
And I dont think theres a lot of people left who hate pvp/getting PK'ed that much that they would quit suddenly now now that the game is so easy.

L2 is so cool because *nobody knows* what's gonna happen on this server. Merge all the WoW servers into one and you have exactly the same game, people raid get their farm items and get better gear. They are actually merged in some way with cross server party matching.

Merge all the L2 servers and you dont know if you gonna get PK'ed, have to fight for grind spots or be left alone the next weeks or who will make the most powerful clan.

I am going off what happened when they did the merges last time (And those were small merges), and all the threads about people quitting becuase of the merge.

As for fortresses, I can tell you there won't be enough to go around. Should make for some fun though, as every 4 hours they will probably be seiged.

Its not that many new players in L2 tbh, like a dozen per server? lol, almost everyone that plays have played for years and are lvl 76+.
Just join a clan, almost every clan has low lvl alts and stuff you can exp with (if u want the company ofc hehe), good luck

I just started 2 weeks ago, very fun with clan and stuff
