So what I was thinking was instead of having a few realms that everyone could join, have a few realms where you can only join a specific one or two.
Basically how this would work is something like this:
Realm 1: Only 0/8’s
Realm 2: Only 1/8 - 3/8’s
Realm 3: Only 4/8 - 6/8’s
Realm 4: Only 7/8 - 8/8’s

This idea was from a comment below by @BaraBlazer, thanks!
Players would be split into realms according to how many potions they have drunk.
Wis, Spd, and Dex would be 2 points each for each potion drunk.
Vit, Att, and Def would be 4 points each for each potion drunk.
Mana and Life would be 10 points each for each potion drunk.
If you have:
0 - 50 points = You go into Realm 1
51 - 200 points = You go into Realm 2
201 - 350 points = You go into Realm 3
351 - 550 points = You go into Realm 4
551 - 700 points = You go into Realm 5
Above 700 points = You go into Realm 6
We have 6 realms here which might be a bit too much, so if the server had under 3 x 85 = 255 people there would be 3 servers (each realm would be 2 realms condensed, for example Realm 1 in a server with under 255 people would be Realm 1 + Realm 2 (0 - 200 points)). If the server had under 85 people there would only be 1 server.
To prevent those with higher and lower rolls from getting an unfair selection, if you max any stat, the points allocated to that stat will automatically change to the default. For example the default max value points for a stat would be [(max base value of your stat) - (average value of that stat)] x 2 (for example if it was a Knight, the dex stat would give you (50 - 29) x 2 = 42 points.
This way, the points you could get is for a Warrior is Life (210) + Mana (120) + Def (100) + Att (124) + Vit (144) + Wis (42) + Spd (48) + Dex (42) = 830
I haven’t done all the maths for the other classes but I imagine that all 8/8’s would be in the last realm.
Using this way, you can’t just make a char 1 pot maxed from each stat without being moved into a higher number Realm.
There could be more than one of each realm if the realm is full so that everybody could get in. How you would tell which realm was which would be something like this: For example you have a “Realm 3” for 201 - 350 point players, and it was called “Medusa”. The name of the realm would then be called “Medusa ”.
I believe that this would help a lot of players to get more and compete for more loot, basically make the game more fair for those who are tired of running to a cube god and having it steamrolled by 8/8’s with pixies and dbows.
Hope you like this idea, feel free to comment and give suggestions!
