So you are creating total 4 servers. In 2 years or less these servers are gonna be dead (like after previous merges). So u gonna be left with 4 dead servers and start create new ones again very fast, cause profits will go down. Instead u shouldve keep it like it is (still create new servers for new players) and only make international provicarium arena, so I can fight with gladiators in my league from all servers (now it's only community servers like US, EN, PL, DE etc). Provincarium should be all communities.
My problem with this is some weaker players gonna get attacked and they will stop playing. Like 1st player is 120lvl and the 2nd is 128. They wouldnt be seen on provincarium arena (cause 1st player has way less base stats than 2nd player), but now they all together. Same if someone is lvl 200 and they will attack lvl140. That shouldnt be possible. You should unable attacks below ur league lvl or at least don't count it to stats.
If u aint top1 guild or top1 rank and someone will dethrone u, u might lose motivation to play as well. So you will lose 80% of players and 80% of ur profits or something like that. Many players will stop playing. That merge would be a good excuse for them to quit.
You shouldve just keep all of them on these seperated servers and make more interesting provincarium arena (where u match with players ur rank). The only good idea is that next servers will be all international and that should be a thing long time ago. But lets be real guys, this game is a solo game. You should just keep ALL players seperated and only let them fight on provincarium arenas. You need to grasp that. Don't let players attack each other with high level of difference. Like fights between 90lvl and 140lvl shouldnt exist. Just fights with provincarium arena. Make some global ranking highscore and thats it.
Solution: block fights within server, only allow fights through Provincarium arena and add also players from your own server to Provincarium too, so that way u got all players within your rank to fight

Do you seek revenge from another gladiator? Challenge him now for 10 to a duel in the arena.
Like for example in CS:GO u have rank system as well and u dont allow lower rank players to be matched with higher rank players. Overall need to be balanced. Why they do this? Because they know players would leave and lose motivation to play. So there should be only fights within your range/leagues like in Provincarium
Merges are bad cause u wont have hundreds dead servers, but only 4 dead servers. I dunno how u gonna profit that. So later on dont blame players that they leave and that the game is dead. You know NOW that these 4 servers are gonna be dead pretty fast, cause u got ALREADY experience with merges, that shouldnt be surprise. Is that gladiatus last dance before closing?
I personally not gonna play much, maybe during microevents, but thats not even sure
