Terrain - 15

If all else is equal, a guild coming up against a force greatly outnumbering its members, will result in the flight of members.

Players: This is common in MMORPGs where game servers are pitted against other servers with unequal populations. Members will naturally flock towards servers with higher populations to ensure they have other people to play with, who serve as a protective and social measure.

Designers: It is in the best interest of players to ensure balance in the number of players across game servers. Additionally, by limiting the amount of transfers, along with making it unsavory to transfer, this helps to ensure balance among servers. Finally, when all else fails to create balance, the combining of servers to ensure population balance is advised.
