PostSubject: Server Mergers Starting   Mon Dec 01, 2008 3:12 pm

As announced a few weeks ago, we will merge the Age of Conan servers before the Christmas Holidays. Today we want to give you some detailed information about how these merges will happen and what this will mean for you, the players.

We will be spreading the server merges over the next few weeks so not all the servers will be merged at the exact same time. It is important to us to ensure that the merge process goes as smooth as possible. Therefore it is vital that we spread out the work rather than doing these complicated processes all at the same time in order to minimize possible risks.

The first servers that will be merged are the US servers ‘Bloodspire’ and ‘Hyperborea’. The list of servers for the next merges will be published shortly.

It is important to know that during the time servers will be merged, all servers of the same territory (US or EU) will not be available. This means that during this week's downtime - where the two above mentioned servers are merged - all US servers will be unavailable. The exact duration of such a downtime will be announced soon but we do expect them to be longer than the usual update downtime.

When the merge process is complete we will be giving all active subscribers an appropriate amount of free game-time to compensate for the additional downtime required for the merges. The details of this will be communicated once the merge process is complete.

It’s important for us to ensure the best game-play experience for you all, and more healthy populations on each and every server will make sure we maintain healthy communities for the game in the future.

Once the merges are complete we will be offering a free one-use character transfer option for all characters so that if you wish to join a different community after the merge than the one you were allocated you are free to do so. This transfer will be free of charge and can be used once per character and will be available from your billing pages.

Also after the merges are complete we will be opening up new ‘fresh start’ servers in both the US and EU territories. One each for PVE and PVP rulesets. Transfer will not be allowed to these servers after the merges. These new servers are designed to allow players to start afresh in a totally new environment should they wish to do so and forge a new community instead of joining one of the newly merged ones.

We wanted to post this announcement with a server merge FAQ but we will aim for tomorrow instead. We saw no point in holding back the bulk of the announcement just on that minor issue.

Sounds like the planned merge failed due to unexpected issues. Anyone able to confirm this?

There were some technical issues during the process of the server merge of 'Bloodspire' and 'Hyperborea' which makes it necessary to investigate the process in detail. To ensure that players of those servers are not experiencing any unforeseen problems when logging back in with their characters, we decided to roll those two servers back to the state they were before the merge. So both 'Bloodspire' as well as 'Hyperborea' will be coming back up in the same state as before.

The small update has been deployed to all US servers though and clients will update normally.

We will of course be back when the issue has been further investigated so please stay tuned for more information soon.

I'm sorry to hear that you all are having these issues. I hope that things work themselves out for you soon.

I was disappointed to hear that Tabula Rasa is shutting down next month. Warhammer is really seeing low populations now too, most of us have cancelled. My son and I are playing EQ2 now.

Tough times for MMO's...
