Well, I kind of recall from the last merge that it was denied left and right by GMs etc until about a month before the actual merge was to take place. So really, no surprise that someone is going to deny it at this stage.
However, I predict Apoc's population will begin a dramatic decrease in the next month or two if a merge DOESN'T happen, heck it's already starting you can probably see that from the amounts being spent on the past couple promos. There is exactly ONE Kingdom with actual power here and it will take many more months for another Kingdom to rise in power enough to even stand a chance at being a feasible rival. In the meantime, I know of numerous people who DO spend and are now completely bored and either quitting or taking extended breaks.
This server NEEDS for something to change, cuz right now it's just Farmville and i'm pretty sure that's not why many of us came to this game. Heck, we even separated one alliance from the rest of Kingdom recently to have a war out of boredom. Because there are NO real issues on Apoc to actually fight over and these people are actually allies and good friends, it lasted all of a week then ended cuz we got bored again fighting for no reason at all. Now we're back to Farmville because everyone has adequate wonders and no shortage of grain spots here. This server's lack of action isn't really why i've spent money acquiring and upgrading heros, in the hopes that Apoc *would* get another merge and have some good solid competition and battles. That is why most of us wanted to play this game to begin with.
In short, you've got an excessive population of stronger players on Titans and a severe lack of enough of them on Apoc to actually have some decent war entertainment. Maybe a merge isn't needed if you can figure out some possible way of injecting one of the stronger Kingdoms from Titans onto our server? Sure would be fun getting my cities burnt to ash again and actually having SOMEONE to fight against and someTHING to fight for.
