Here's a little proof that none of the merged ( i ) or ( I ) players have been taken out of vmode.
Snapshots from todays OGniter search for ( i ) and ( I ) players.
Those are all pre-merger UNI 1 accounts. I know because I have either raided or farmed almost every one of them.
I came to UNI 1 during the first merger. There had to be many Taurus inactives not in VMode that out rank these UNI 1
