Also i just do not trust gpot with a server merge. I have a feeling alot of bs will happen as with all of their log in events and similar things. Prepare for "oh your character data was corrupt after the merge and we cannot restore it".
As much as I love in-game fighting for power, a merge would simply throw off a lot of guilds. Only end-game guilds I possibly see surviving a merge would be: - Ascendancy - Mercenaries - Valiance - WarSong - Chaos - Reborn
^ Those are the main competitive end-game guilds I see surviving with only few players possibly jumping ship or quitting.
Of course more of the medium to lower guilds could either survive or break, but those are the higher level guilds.
Balance would shatter with server merge.
Not to mention HUUUGE drama lol.
