Maybe my viewpoint is so different because I've read the Tensess forums regarding this thread. If you haven't read it, please go do it.
Loyalty on Tensess appears to be way worse than it is on Nezeb and people guild hop a lot from what I've read. If they merge servers "I can 95% guarantee you"
that it will turn into Mercs (with the elite valiance/3rd faction/eminence/warsong players) vs. Ascendancy (with the elite reborn/chaos players) eventually. Established guilds will always win out against newer ones and ones with bad leadership. The fact that Ascend/Mercs have been the top 2 guilds of their respective faction since forever proves that. People go to greener pastures, whether its for greed, better progression, or their current guild just sucks. And considering how weak these Tensess guilds appear from the outside, I foresee the same fate for them.

1. They'll look for guild with the most realgar (Looks at the top 5 Guilds in AC->
Once a guild drops out of it they will cause drama and find greener pastures)
2. They'll look for guild with Instant Astral Parties (They want to make it
feel like their entire guilds are obligated to find parties for them all
the time, they all wanted it on a silver plate they never created)
3. Guild with the most freebies. (If a guild can kill more bosses in GT and DC then
applications will start pouring in)
So to those of you saying this merge will create more competition, I'd love to hear how 2 super-guilds getting more 'super' creates competition (our fights would be more competitive
but in the end Mercs would still be Ascend's only competition
), and if you honestly believe Valiance/3rd Faction/Reborn/Chaos would last if they merged with Nezeb.
