yea i bet names would get messed up i remember when they switch to ke or maybe it was rofd and everyones names and clans had like wierd alt letters haha. but if they did it right they would do something like what chabo said with the a and b thing or 1-2.
but merging is a great idea..i think less people will continue to quit the game because of boredom if they merge and make servers more active. but...........they will need to do this without there trademark updates which involve...dc,errors,bugs, and new hacks. also servers should be merged with servers of equal game structures. like you cant put ares with a new server..just wont work. and definetly dont touch swest lol.
