it's never too late ^^
People who left, left because of the new EP contents
I don't know you but on US and PL shaiya I do know a lot of players that would start playing on scandinave server, even if it's not their country one.
For exemple, myself, i'm canadian. I played US shaiya and then i played Polish shaiya while i didn't know a word of it. I learned it, played it, and still do.
So even if it's not their languages ( altho you can traduce it in english since it's the most spoken language in the world after chinese ), lot of players from US, GR, PT, PL, IT, TR and probably others around all the world would join the fictive SN ( scandinave ) server just to be playing in ep 2.5 to ep 4 once again. You don't need to talk swedish to kill people in pvp lol. I didn't need to spek polish to kill peeople in pvp or talk in teamspeak, and what... today i have over 150k kills there and i enjoyed all the time i played there.
But like many other servers we had the updates to ep 5.2 and now we are in 5.4 and like many of you, i saw 3/4 of the server quiting and going to guild wars 2 or Aion because they couldnt enjoy playing shaiya anymore.
Making for exemple a Swedish shaiya, don't mean you will have only swedish people playing it. Just like on US shaiya for exemple, you will have turkish, polish, french, german players all over the place. they are atracted by the context.
so you will not have the 25 000 ppl from th country but some of the 6billion on the earth ^^
