Important: Server status announcement

Recommended Posts

example:-

I have 1 pirate character and 1 Spanish character on the EU server, both have a shit loada of crap.

I have 1 British character and 1 Russian character on global, both with a crap load more stuff too.

The question is:- which characters do I get to keep, which will overwrite which and what stuff do I get to keep?

You cant have 2 chars on one server (per steam account). 1 char per server is the limit atm

Makes no sense at all. Liq, i have 2 x steam accounts sorry.

Well then it will be 1 final char per steam account. 

Stuff from your global server chars get merged into your eu server char.

Cant mix up the two steam accounts.

We need good clear answers, so that we know what to do on each server, to make the best of this.

I'd really pissed off to find I lost most of the stuff from one, due to being misinformed.

I assume he has two accounts like some of us.   I'm thinking they should allow some way to do a name/nation change for those folks that are merging over.  Since the wipe I haven't played much on EU server but I still have chars in nations that don't make what I have on GLOBAL (which I play pretty much all pirates).  

Sir Texas Sir is in GB and I have no plan to play GB on EU so I would want to change that nation to what ever nation my clan ends up going to when this happens.

Just a scenario here:

Most US tz players on global are in US/GB/PR. Right? Then those nations will have a large us tz playerbase. If global has taught us anything that birds of a feather flock together. So those TZ player will *probably* group up, whatever noble intentions are mentioned. i've heard even @Christendom complain about this. So we'd get the same issue as before: Stacked timezones outside the mainstream (eu-based) timezone. With all issues involved: Flip during primetime, defend during off-time. One sided fights.

We've seen it happen before and if you don't think it has changed you are an idiot. 

And this is without any salt. I've invited Christendom into REDS personally. So yes, hell froze over in that respect. But the night- defense options are a thing I fear will happen again. I'm not against a server merge, but I am sceptical about this mechanic.

I must agree. It just doesn't make sense.

IMO the only good that can come from this change is that now at least Christendom will stop hello kittying spamming every damn thread of the forums with off-topic MERGE propaganda shouting.

In your case 

Steam1 : Global account 1 -> redeemables -> EU account 1

Steam2: Global 2 -> redeemables -> EU account 2

There is not going to be a port wipe at this stage. 

 

Seems to me like this should be the biggest element of conversation here.  I'm not sure if resetting or not resetting would actually create more satisfaction on the newly merged server.  But if I had to guess, I would think an immediate map reset would be a better move forward.  To me, not resetting ports right now may tend to create resentment and maybe permanent grudges between clans.

That going to suck for pirates since the Russians (I believe former pirates) took Kidds.   Hmm.   So basically any of the refugee's from the other server will have to start from scratch clan based and fight over scraps of the EU clans that are all ready established and got a foot hold of the server.  You might want to rethink this as it would be a good time to do a reset of the map and retest battle/port mechanics again.

I doubt it. Now the spam will be about killing the PvE server: The more things change, the more they stay the same.

LOL - this nations with minus 40 mil daily for unkeep costs will get their arses kicked hard. Add to this all ports you want defend 100K each :P 

Didn't even think of that but that would double the cost of all ports own.  We have about 23 ports on Global and that is over 2.5 million in cost a day, but with income we where only having to pay in around 600K a day after cost.   It's not to bad, but I can see clans owning less ports.  That might be good if they don't do a wipe than many clans are going to drop there extra ports to give the new clans a chance at some of the scraps, but still established clans will have all the best pickings for there nations.

Why should it, read the first post, and u will read the exact same. U will get the redemes on the char on the renamed server. Depending on ur steam id.

All this mechanics will may work but with full server...adding extra costs taking your time from fun - pvp, rvr etc. Fact that pop will boost by 200+ players for week or so change nothing.

My apologies. I merely infer from the fact that you are only allowed 1 character per server on each steam account and that redeemables are not transferable between steams accounnts or even regular accounts.

[edit out - the moderation team] You get merged to eu server and want map wipe so russian clans can loose their warehouse, when yours is safe in the redeemables

Capture port and set up
