Don't you people actually think gamigo and everyone else working around these two games know how they could revive the community?
No (sane) DP player would willingly switch to SH without losing all the progress, effort and money he spent in DP, knowing that SH will be the same except for being far more expensive, far less behind and they had to start all over.
And true, probably no SH player would switch back to DP because SH is so expensive and he already spent too much money (ironic, eh? ...)
I've had lots of fun in the game, even the last years during which almost nothing has happened. But with the latest changes, the game only got more empty, more people resining to a feeling they've had over quite some time and less players joing new because of the exact fact that Silluca has so nicely already pointed out here:
... we dont even have our own website after migration ...
And even if the games were merged (besides the gigantic workload this would probably cause and after the work they've just had with the migration ...) do you really think gamigo would in any way be interested in vouchering your WHOLE equipment and dragons?
Those items could be gifted to me in SH on my current character there and my DP characters could be deleted.
Sure, now that SH and DP are under one roof and even sharing one cash account there would probably be a away - but why should they ever spend the time, the effort and the money (because telling their staff to spend their time on transferring people's stuff instead of doing other things on the agenda is pure money) ?? You would have to spend the money equal to the staff's hours he made to transfer your stuff plus an amount x only as the price to do so. I doubt this price would be 10$ only.
Rather let those people start over again, buying new stuff for real money instead of giving them the things they already had and already payed for.
Sorry, I've defended this game long enough
