I think the whole concept of a servers merger is to make the game a better product for the players and to make it more profitable for the company, less servers should mean less cost to k2 to run and better gm support. If it was me I would have a large build up to server mergers day, all clans would be canceled but no np loss, all csw holders canceled and give everyone 1 week to get clans together and organize before the first csw, I think I would include some boss events that kind of thing to kick it all off in that first week.
I would also tie it into some patch with a new xtrap or anti cheating patch and bitfrost.
And This would be my choices for mergers
Ares + Diez + Zigenon new name Azazel
Bera + Cypher + Olympia new name Pragg
Edna + Manes + Pathos new name Magnus
Ronark + Lagos + Girakon new name Ellyrion
Akara + Carnac East new name Tiranoc
Carnac West new name Carnac
Yeah whatever too much time on my hands, names taken from WH btw.
