I hope they take into consideration new players. It shocking to find a new player; I know lol. I am level 70 on Aries. I got there by solo AFK training with regular remote. I joined Aries because it was the only server with other players. I have no GS or E-Remote as I don't pay for online games. I cannot buy anything from other players since everything is so expensive. I'm in no guild cause the guild I was in collapse and went inactive and no new guilds are available. Also I play when I can, not on everyday so that probably why I can't get in guild too.
Putting all high level players into one server will shift the game greatly. How do you expect me to continue to play with such a huge disadvantage? How do you expect new players to join if you get rid of low level players? I think you need to consider a rebalance and not just a merge. I enjoy the game very much and I will continue to play and hopefully get to where all you pro players are some day. Congrats to you all for your accomplishments! :-)
