80-90% of the forum community (who have bothered to reply to this post), which consists of what, 5% max of the game playerbase? I'm not going to bother counting individual profiles on this thread, but I'd assume there's probably only 30-40 different people commenting on this thread.
The community on the forums is not always representative of the community as a whole. The people who gravitate to the forums are usually either players who are bored, genuinely want to make the game better, or are really upset about something and want to vent. A topic on a controversial change immediately after an update usually tends to attract more of the third.
All that being said, I do agree that a disproportionate number of players aren't happy right now, though I think most of that is because of the lag...If lag wasn't an issue on release, I think there would be a lot less uproar about the change. Obviously there are quite a few who think it's a great or horrible idea, but honestly I think a lot of players simply don't really care that much about whether or not the castle is cross-server or not.
