Goodbye overflows, hello overflows!

Seems like a good change, something to make sure maps always feel populated. It's basically like a polished version of the overflow system taking over. In possibly even better news;
"we’ve developed a new schedule for boss events so each boss event occurs at the same times every day and on every world, allowing you to know when a boss event will happen and where you need to be. We’ve also added an additional system of triggering our most hardcore, mega-organized encounters for our large guilds."

No longer will I see a boss fight pop up over a site pulling from the API, only to zone in on an overflow that doesn't have it running!

Bit wary of how this affects server communities... The RPers and WvWers and such

I expect servers to be something of a "in name only" thing, something used for WvW and whatever special cases need to be met beyond that, they specifically note PvE is combining, not the game as a whole. So that should basically all function as normal.

Wonder what RP'ers will do though, I kind of doubt they'd be on an island, maybe it'll be something commonly done over guild chat instead of map?
