No one can deny the fact that most survival servers out right now are in an awful position right now. Barely any players play on most of the new servers which were released and advertised using sponsored youtubers, and they just sit there waiting to be closed down. I propose that all the survival servers be conjoined into just Survival again to not only simplify the menu, but just so people have somewhere everyone can experience pixelmon with other people. If you play on any survival server, most of the players have quit and moved on because the server has gotten boring and the lack of players gives no friendly atmosphere and only broadcast spam. Yes if the servers were conjoined, there would be huge issues with all the people who paid for items on Alpha, or yellow, or red, or whats it on now? Bedrock? There are too many servers as it is, and with the inclusion of a new server called survival, the other survival servers which have lost their way can have map downloads in the announcements, and a few months before being deleted. Yes I know the admins are working on the diamond and alola regions, but that menu doesn't need to grow, it needs to compact itself. Pokeplay has never really stood out as a survival pixelmon server, but the roleplay ones always stuck out as they were unique. They should be priority over having what is it, 10? survival servers no one plays on.

You may want to transfer your hard earned pokemon over and my answer to that is No.
When alpha was brutally reset, the admins decided that players would be able to carry over their pcs... That was a mistake. This caused a huge imbalance in the economy, and quickly became the main source of everyone's wealth. Yes, people paid for their legendary keys, etc. But then again, did they expect to pay 50 bucks and expect those pokemon to accompany them forever?
Having a new map would mean a clean slate and a great way for everyone to experience true pixelmon with their friends and not relying on what they had before. It would be a utopia (probably) and hopefully it will be considered.
Some would argue that they paid good money for their ranks, and now they're all being deleted. If they really care that deeply about their ranks, then I think that they should be awarded 1 rank transfer onto this Mega survival server. The admins will argue that they wouldn't be making money, or that conjoining the servers would lose potential profit, but it's not like anyone will buy a rank on a server with 0 players at every time of the day. *cough cough* johto *cough*
Also with this mega server, the player cap would be increased, and the world remain the same size, BUT with the nether, the end, AND ultra space :D now this isn't a quick project, so it would probably take time if even considered, but if you think about rival pixelmon servers, they have actually decent supporters, and all give players access to these realms.
Pokeplay as a server has made at least $200,000 as of 12/23/19. On the store it says the store has achieved a $1000 goal 242 times so far, and this continually grows with passing days. This money should be turned back into renting a good supporter which outmatches the current one. I'm not going to go into detail about that with my lack of knowledge on the subject, but I know whatever the server is being supported on right now isn't practical.

Now onto the non p2w server. (Maybe a donar only requirement for the irony)

Everyone nowadays always begs their parents to let their kids use their credit cards to buy ranks, pokemon, etc. before being scolded. I think a non p2w server should be added where you can't buy any ranks, or pokemon, but you can support the server by donating and getting the cool miscellaneous player sashes and stuff, so you would be able to still buy those. Also /nick with colors because who doesn't love having colored names? (With blacklisted names ofc)

Otherwise, this server will not support tokens, ranks, keys, or purchased legendaries, and everyone will have tpa perms with 2 sethomes.

All a suggestion, not an attack, I love pokeplay as it is right now, but it's gone downhill, and thats an undeniable fact.

I mean, the whole shadow and light pokemon thing is basically a less gratifying loot box system being that you don't get to choose which mon you get out of it but there is no loot box animation. If anyone wants to play with the special mon competitively they have to dump $15 USD each time for a 1 in 38 chance to get the normal shadow mon they need or a 1 in 23 chance for a normal light mon.

There is no lootbox thing for the shadow and light pokemon, once you add them to your cart, you can select which pokemon you want to get.

I expected more criticism, but to save the effort of re explaining, the only thing I ask for is just keeping the survival server situation stable and in a way which will keep it alive and not put all the eggs in alpha. And a new server where it's totally no way influencable by paying so the economy is entirely made up of hard earned pokemon and grinding rather than paid for shiny legendaries and also a server where the only commands given are /tpa, /sethome, /home so players can all /tpa and they will rely on using iv calculators, etc.

Public /tpa would be more of a convenience, more homes for money is also quite unfair for most players, and you can't say paying for an extremely difficult to obtain pokemon isn't in most people's definition of "p2w".
In simpler terms, you are paying for a shiny legendary
Thats paying, to win. Win being extremely valuable or end game items in game which are obtained in other means besides gameplay.

pay to win is if we disabled legends spawning in survival completly secondly ok tpa i agree
Glad we can agree on something, and let me repeat myself.

"A new server where it's totally no way influencable by paying so the economy is entirely made up of hard earned pokemon and grinding rather than paid for shiny legendaries "

Hopefully that clears up any previous misconceptions you may have had reading.
