As I said in the post that was removed... and very on topic...

You got jokes. 

 

The problem isnt just you dont communicate outside of these forums.  And good you put it in game on the login, in pink.... really pink?    But the people who DONT login anymore because they are sick of the dead servers or lack of content.   When they see a big patch hit on the Steam downloads they will wonder, "maybe he fixed the game"... then come back and go "WTF?!"

 

At least you tried....

Thats why patchnotes are there which are communicated in steamforum steamnews and in this forum.

You are just a bitch because admin owned you

pink?

might be due to some colour blind conditions ? C'mon man, take it as it is.

The announcement is out there. Plus we are all, in our own, venues of announcing it as well to our own gaming communities that share time in NA from time to time.

Most EU players cant even attack US ports during weekends because of this.

THE PEOPLE NEEDS TO SLEEP.

 

This merge will only made that EU RVR community leaves the game because NA has gone unhealthy for them.

And why do you have to attack US ports?  You don't want them to attack your ports and set off time ports than maybe don't attack there ports.  There is a majority of EU clans right on this server so shouldn't the EU's stick to fighting other EU clans if they don't want other time zone battles to happen?   I mean I plan to only worry about battles with other US and AUS/SEA clans/players myself.  I might get involved in some screening during EU main prime time on the weekends, but other than that I don't plan to spend my mid day messing with your prime time.  

If you don't want flips in other time zones than you pay the fee, if your to broke to pay the fee or don't want to grind than maybe you shouldn't own the port.  Let some other clan own it that is willing to pay the fee and fight for it.

When is it happening???

That's THE most important question.

To much delay will harm the game.

 

Yah @admin we really need an ETA on this. Even if it's something like a couple weeks from now or will it be next week?  A lot of folks want to just drop every thing and get it over with.  Though if we have to wait weeks or until the first of the year your going to loose and piss off more players.  Lets just get this done and over with.

The time window is 2-3 hours. You will always have people online to defend even if you yourself isn't online. If you lose the port in your time that US players stayed up late to take how can you complain when you yourself have to do the same thing to get it back? Where is the unfairness?

Please someone from EU enlighten me why its such a problem. I don't want to fling shit I just wanna understand.

You are right. No problem if ppl wants to play in an non restrictet way. Those that have chosen to play on EU, did soe because they wantet some restriktions. So now ifthey wanner play NA, they are forced to play on a server they turned Down.

actually global player turned Down there own server. If they had liked the gamerukes on global, well there would more players there then on EU server

Experiences that Hethwil dont have a clue when he was sailing in his privateer all the time.

You mean making the game work for him the way he likes to play rather than bitch about some broken mythical "end-game content"?  Are some of you peope so one-dimensional in real life?

BOORRRRRRRRRRING.

Simple enough. Even if we set the timer and you show up in oure timezone. We might win some of the pb and some we are going to lose: But unikke you we wont be up at Night to win it back. So in the end we can only lose.

I do even think a lot of port will be with out a timer, simple because lots of EU players not are going to be part of the RvR under this game ruleset. In short time global will play on a server in regard to RvR as the one they play on now.

Can the Devs please clarify exactly what will be transferred over and what will not when the server merge happens. I have read the forum posts and the message on the login screen but it is still unclear regarding some items. On the login screen it mentions opened skillbooks, what is an opened skill book? is this one that you have already learned? if so what about closed skillbooks that you were saving because they are needed in some recipe that you do not yet have all the parts for? What about permanent upgrades are they classed as assets?

We also need a clear answer regarding how characters will be handled between servers, will the Global characters be lost and the XP be in the form of a redeemable on the new server, what if the character on the new server already has some xp, is the redeemable xp going to be in addition to that? What if the character on the new server is in a different nation, will they be allowed to change?

What if you prefer the name of your character on the Global server but already have a character on the EU server with a different name, do you get to choose which name?

These are all specific things that need to be clarified in advance to prevent arguments and disgruntled people once the merge has happened, and please let the Devs respond to these questions not other people with what they perceive has been said in the brief announcements.

@Archaos Delete the char from EU and create a new one. You will get all your stuff from global as redeemable. 

Please let the Devs respond, your response does not even start to answer my questions and can only serve to create more confusion. At no stage have I seen any response from Devs saying to delete a character on the EU server.

If your happy with the name of the char on EU you don't have to delete it. If you want to change nations than use forge papers.  The delete option is only for those that want to change the name of there chars.  Though I do agree we need a bit more clear info. Along with an ETA of when this is going to take place.

This still does not answer most of the questions, what if my character on EU has some experience does the transfer xp allow me to jump a rank because my Global character was higher level or even same level?

What about unopened skillbooks? are these just lost.

They need to give clear guidance on how it will happen otherwise you will get the usual s**tstorm from disgruntled people who have lost items, especially if they lose items that are parts of rare skillbooks.

Yep agree we need a bit more details and more clear answers.  If we can stack the XP it means some folks will level up or even max out there chars.  I know my crafter has gained two rank since the wipe so this would let me prob max it's rank out even though it's level 50 crafter.  Not that it needs rank as it's just used and abused to make ships and cannons lol

All assets will be transferred to the merged server. You do not need to delete the current character on PVP EU - you will be able to use stuff from Global PVP on your current character (including experience). If you do not have a character on PVP EU, after the merge just create a character and all stuff will be in your redeemables. If you wish to change the name, you can delete your PVP EU character, redeemables are safe until used.

Clarification regarding books:

  • If you learnt Book A and you also have another copy of Book A in your warehouse on PVP Global, you will receive 2x Book A in redeemables.

Clarification regarding Ship slots:

  • All learned slots from all ships will be transferred as a new type one experience redeemable including all ships (separate from general battle and craft experiences). E.g. If you have 1 open slot on Ship A on PVP EU and had 3 open slots on Ship A on PVP Global, experience from these 3 slots will be added to the current 1 open slot.

Clarification regarding Clan Warehouse:

  • Clan assets will be in an officer redeemables  who logged in last.

Clarification regarding installed upgrades and guns:

  • Installed upgrades and guns will be in your redeemables

Thanks.

And a permanent upgrade installed on a ship on global will be a redeemable on Caribbean?

What about cannons already on ships?

(include as redemables) ...money and monetary costs of buildings and outposts and dockyard slots

Admin, does this include the resources/materials needed to build a shipyard (stone, iron fittings, etc)? I own a level 3 shipyard in Global.

I am a Global player and we need to see this change happen quickly.  Global is a ghost town right now and everyone is holding their breath waiting for the merge.  Playing right now is pointless.  Please make this happen quick.  The time is now...

I wish they would pull the plug already on global, man it's killing me. We finally have it but now the wait.

you can already move

all assets you have on global will come to you redeems once merge starts (hopefully next week) :). All you have on the Caribbean will also be there.
