What happens when people move on from a virtual world? That's what's being discussed over at Slashdot today as the news that Sony would be merging Everquest servers hit the Internet. The idea is that as more and more people leave the MMORPG game behind for newer online experiences, the original world of Everquest doesn't need to be so, well, massively multiplayer anymore. Various realms are being combined to streamline things a little. While this in itself is minor news in the grand scheme of things, it does raise the question as to just what happens to a MMORPG when the players stop playing.
