Strongly disagree here.
While Im disappointed yet again that Funcom has pulled the wool over our eyes, I do look forward to a new map.
I really, really hope that its an instanced type of map, just like the dungeons we can access from our current server…or rather, the new map is a separate server but tied only to current servers. Example, right now, pvp server #1. New map comes out, called New Map server #1. Only players on old pvp server 1 can access New Map server 1. (hope this is clear, its kind of like cluster servers on Ark). Each current server will have its own New Map server, accessable through the old map, maybe like an obelisk, a ship to board, sorcery teleportation etc.
Now for what I would love, and where we disagree. All your toons, inventory, materials and thralls can be moved from one to the other, so you can take materials and thralls, build a new base on the new map, then ferry items back to the old map, and vice versa.
In my opinion, if they don’t do it this way, or allowing only your naked toon to transfer and no items, is a slap in the players faces.
