Ok, Rosey, just for you, bruh, one at a time...

FYI: (*=your answer)

NGD ran Ra, & Horus.
Gamigo AG leased Muspell, Niflheim, & Nemon.
UnitedGames leased Tyr.
GameSamba* leased Raven (2011?).
BoaCompra leased Piranha.

Muspel + Niflheim = Valhalla now.
Horus + Tyr + Raven + Nemon = Haven now.
Ra + Piranha = Ra now.

Yup, that is when multi-realming on Horus (now, Haven) went from being the gameplay exception, to being the rule instead, & the current way-of-things.

Yup, & that is mostly due to two factors at play: 1) the aforementioned multirealming ofc, & 2) the simple fact that it takes at the very least 2-or-3 to 1 odds to successfully invade due to CoR's invasion mechanics.

How? (I'm repeating what I've heard here) They have various pools of players. Over time, they rate these player pools as an entire realm by their gameplay skills/results. Periodically, they do reviews, & may shift one realm pool up to a 'better' server, or down to one that's 'worse'. Those that lose population, they bolster with those new players entering the game, or those requesting server transfers. This overall process in theory is designed to maintain a reasonably fair balance of both realm populations & realm competitiveness within each server.

Ditto ... yet the players can also make the game UNplayable
