I'm going to keep an open mind about this change, But there isn't anything in it for a casual like me, and it does worry me about what this will really mean for casual players. I guess if there are enough channels it might not make any difference, while giving the node wars a long called for boost. But I was expecting and desiring this as much as I longed for President Trump.

I expected server merges but this is wayyyyy tooo early. At least release all awakenings and valencia part 3 as to finish off 2016 with a bang, THEN server merge before releasing the snow-land content of 2017...

This is such too sudden.

well, interestingly enough, this is how the game was originally structured so it may in fact end up helping. 

edit: also, 36 channels provides the opportunity for u to find low pop channel - low pop usually = smoother

so that's nice too~

good overall !

If it does help with connectivity... Then I am in fact in total favour of this move after all.

Well if a channel is crowded or not can be pretty random.

Sure there will be probably about 5 Mainchannels then i guess

 

But searching a free spot with a 15min channelswitch cooldown? funtimes ( i mean that actually doesnt change from right now )

 

If they want channles to be more crowded they have to reduce the number of them. But that would be also make grinding spots a mess

Dont merge the items with this server merge idea, it will make a unfair advantage for the people that havent picked up the items on the other channels.

14. What happens if a player ends up with too many characters after the merge?

If a player has more than 12 characters, characters are sorted from the highest level to the lowest level. The information for all characters is kept. However only the first 12 characters with the highest level are playable. If you delete one of the 12, the next highest level character in line will show up on the list. The characters not in the top 12 can only be deleted, and they will be automatically deleted after 90 days. All characters created before the merge will have a 10 minute delete confirmation time.

 So does this mean you just get free character slots, where other players payed before to get to 9 slots for example?

think of it this way: when you log back in after a maint there is lower number of people on channels, this directly related to smoother experience from what i've noticed. prob feels that way for everyone. if u can find low pop chans should be the same sort of thing

@CM_Praballo

So, people who didn't abuse this are getting a disadvantage, right? If I had characters in one server only, I'm going to be a fool who doesn't have every free reward merged. 

Also, what are you doing with race horse channels? Are you going to keep them in Velia 1 and 2 or are you going to expand that?

What about unclaimed rewards? I don't bother claiming rewards unless I want to use the items from them so I don't need to waste space on them. Will these be merged?

What is next, new players saying: "Take all characters to level 1, is unfair for all new players, and wipe everyone's gear." -----ing L'Oreal, you don't deserve anything snowflake.

You knew about this time ago you decided not to do it, it was a gamble, you lost, deal with it and GFO.


More tears please, are yummy.

Loyal points (weight + spaces + artisan memory)

Event stuff (x2 boss armor + x3 pets + gold ingots + hard/shard crystals)

Leveling stuff (gold ingots for leveling up to... 55? 56? + Blackstones +shard/hard crystals, 4 hours work) --> the only reachable stuff right now

Contribution exp (really guys, WTF)

And this was a way knowed by people which was waiting for the merge, this is not new.

You f**ed my game experience. I am really sad with this move.

Merge? Yay Finally!  

But  this part pissing me off.

3. What will happen to players with warehouses across multiple servers?

All warehouses will be merged based on region. Even if the total number of items a player keeps in storage exceeds 192 slots (which is the maximum capacity), each of the items that exceed the limit will be merged into the same Town's Warehouse. The items will show up in order of the time they were stored; the newest one first, and the oldest one last. As items are taken out of the warehouse, any items in the overflow slots will move into normal accessible slots.

You will not be able to put more items in your warehouse if it already has all available slots filled.

If you have expanded your warehouse on multiple servers and the combined slots would exceed 192 slots for a specific warehouse, you will be refunded the exact amount of pearls spent for those slots.

What happens to worker's lodging coupons? Do those merge or do they get refunded for every one you have over 3?

Point 3. Lolno

 

Get out, you're merging the warehouses of the kids that abused the events to get multiple boss gear pieces across servers and now merge it so they have it all on the same and have massive advantage over others.

 

Literally get out that's retarded.

Why?

When you play the game, you can login to 3 different servers in your region. You can make characters there and play them - thus taking time away from playing your main characters on your main server.

There's no exploit, no abuse, the KR merger was handled the same way so people could expect it happening here too.

So when you are now butthurt you didn't follow the same strategy - simply playing the game - you actually just come out sounding stupid.

The decission to blindly merge all the items in warehouses accross the servers without checking the hours / server played and logging frequency is plain stupidity.

Players exploited the attendance reward on all 3 servers and now on the server merge the economy and player power will be unbalanced even more with easy gains.

Everyone has been waiting for the server merge and now with one decision you managed to ruin it. Letting people keep the attendance rewards from all servers is just pure stupidity in a competitive game like this and gives some people an unfair advantage. Just reconsider.

You got to love all those salty jealous lazy idiots that prolly knew they could make characters on different server and benefit from the different rewards it had to offer, but since they did not do it and realise now that it was a mistake not doing it, are getting super salty and calls out exploit everywhere...

 

Jelly much?

I have some question:

- What abount unclaimed reward?

- what about boss gear from attendence reward from 3 different server?

- why jordine is the only server down?

 

and this :

 

Loyal points (weight + spaces + artisan memory)

Event stuff (x2 boss armor + x3 pets + gold ingots + hard/shard crystals)

Leveling stuff (gold ingots for leveling up to... 55? 56? + Blackstones +shard/hard crystals, 4 hours work) --> the only reachable stuff right now

Contribution exp (really guys, WTF)

And this was a way knowed by people which was waiting for the merge, this is not new.

I'm thinking this example is for someone with twelve slots on one of the servers. Of you have only got six slots now, I don't think they will give more slots but rather they will only shows six at a time. I haven't purchased any extra slots, and am not expecting any without hitting then. But if I had bought 12 slots for one server, and even one extra shot on another.... boy would I be PISSED.

But I might be wrong, and I'm gonna roll silver chargers on other servers now just in case.
