World of Warcraft – Major server merges for Asia

After the major server closure in the Korean server (link), more bad news arrived over the past week. Over in the China server, which the game license was renewed just recently, publisher NetEase announced 12 PvP servers will be merging into just 6, effectively downsizing the PvP servers by half. Is it a sign that China gamers are not that into PvP as a whole, or simply because they are tired of the game?

Over at the Taiwan server, the same server merging procedure was carried out. 9 servers were merged into 5, with the final server getting just a name change. Of course, both China and Taiwan servers will provide free transfer for the affected accounts. It seems like Blizzard really needs to get Project Titan out by next year to stop the leaking monthly payments plug.
