Home Server Selection

57 posts in this topic

Posted

Greetings Adventurers,

With the approach of the New World, we will be centralizing our service into a single NA or EU regional server. In order to process the information provided from combining multiple servers into a single entity, players will be required to select a Home Server prior to the beginning of maintenance on 11/30/2016.

Our system tracks the last server you have logged out of, which then sets this as the current Home Server, and must be the final server logged into or out of prior to the beginning of maintenance. You may do this for both NA and EU, as each will be considered their own regional server.
 

The Maintenance times for additional clarity are as follows:

  • PST: 11am (Wed, November 30th) -> 12am [Midnight] (Thu, December 1st)
  • CST: 1pm (Wed, November 30th) -> 2am (Thu, December 1st)
  • EST: 2pm (Wed, November 30th) -> 3am (Thu, December 1st)
  • CET: 20:00 (Wed, November 30th) -> 09:00 (Thu, December 1st)
  • UTC: 19:00 (Wed, November 30th) -> 08:00 (Thu, December 1st)

** Important **

  • Failure to select the correct home server could result in issues with the below listed categories as well as other potential areas of the game, and cannot be adjusted at a later date.
     


We'd like to take a moment to highlight the importance of this decision in the below categories: 

[ Guilds ]

The selected Home Server will determine which characters are considered your primary play characters. This directly affects which guild your characters will belong to, as guilds are tied to your family name players cannot belong to multiple guilds.

  • ie: Player Billy has characters on Edan and Uno, and both of them belong to a unique guild on each server. Little Billy would like to be in the guild in which he currently plays on Edan, in order to accomplish this he must ensure that the last server logged out of prior to maintenance is Edan.

[ Nodes / Houses ]

The selected Home Server will determine which nodes are kept, the nodes in the Home Server are kept. The nodes from other servers are converted to Contribution Point EXP, and are added to the Home Server's Contribution Point EXP.

Houses will also be determined in this fashion, the Home Server will be kept and any other houses will be removed with any stored items placed into the appropriate regional warehouse.

[ Contribution ]

The selected Home Server will determine which contribution exp is used as the total amount, and the rest of the servers are converted into Contribution EXP, and get merged into the Home Servers total experience.

  • ie: Sally has 100 contribution on Alustin and only 15 contribution on Jordine, in order to have the desired amount of contribution Sally will need to ensure that she has logged out of Alustin prior to the beginning of the maintenance.

For those of you who may have additional questions or concerns, we've taken several of them and addressed many questions via our FAQ which you can read more about this process here: http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/119305-faq-the-new-world/

You already know there are going to be complaints about people "not knowing" that they logged off on the wrong server by mistake.

Though with a logon message, in game mail, forum posts and system messages I would wonder how someone who missed it made it out of Olvia.

There's more to this game than just Olvia?

 

The maintenance page says something about the return of the Suport event loyal/new/returning, are we getting another make-boss-gear-easy-to-get-event?

Nothing.

 

The contribution XP part, why does home server matter if the contribution will be converted to XP you should end with the same number or points or higher as your highest character, or does it follow some different formula than the one used to level it up?

You end up with the exact same CP regardless of what home server you select, CP is converted into CP EXP and calculated from there.

means that unfortunately you will be forced to play with your 'friends' because after tomorrow there will be only 1 server, you won't be able to get rid of them not even in game ,i feel sorry for you :|

The last server I logged out of was Uno.  When I logged back in the message said Edan............  I think you have some issues.  I was even channel locked on Uno when I logged back in.  I predict major issues.

[ Home Server ]

Home Server is essentially the server you would like to be considered your primary character(s), generally speaking it's the server you log into every time to play. The reason this is of importance is due to a few things the home server will determine, namely what guild you belong to, your node levels, and houses you rent.

[ Guilds ]

The example given above for the guild portion, explains what happens if you belong to two different guilds on two different servers. The Home Server (the last server you have logged out of prior to maintenance) will determine which guild you belong to.

example:

  • You have a character on Alustin in the guild "A", and a character on Jordine in the guild "B". If you were to log out of the server Jordine as the final log out before maintenance starts when you next log in (after maintenance) all characters will belong to guild "B".

This is the same for all other areas of concern, and thus is why it is very important users make sure they set the appropriate home server as we cannot undo the changes later.

[ Your Friends ]

What this means in regards to playing with your friends from another server is, you will now be able to play with them on a single Regional European server.

4a. How many character slots will we have after the merge?

The default amount of character slots remains the same, meaning 6, and the maximum amount of characters slots expandable also remains as 12. If you have activated Character Slot Expansion Coupons, they will remain active after the merge. In case that you activated more than 6 Character Slot Expansion Coupons on the same region, you will be refunded the excess amount.For example:

  • Player 1:
    ○ 6 character slots (default) on Server A
    ○ 6 character slots (default) on Server B
    ○ Will have a total of 6 character slots on the New World
  • Player 2:
    ○ 6 character slots (default) on Server A
    ○ 12 character slots (bought 6 more) on Server B
    ○ Will have a total of 12 character slots on the New World
  • Player 3:
    ○ 8 character slots (bought 2 more) on Server A
    ○ 12 character slots (bought 6 more) on Server B
    ○ Will have a total of 12 character slots on the New World and the 2 character slots left will be refunded.
  • Player 4:
    ○ 12 character slots (bought 6 more) on Server A
    ○ 12 character slots (bought 6 more) on Server B
    ○ Will have a total of 12 character slots on the New World and the 6 character slots left will be refunded.
  • Player 5:
    ○ 8 character slots (bought 2 more) on Server A
    ○ 8 character slots (bought 2 more) on Server B
    ○ Will have a a total of of 10 character slots on the New World.

the characters on my home server do not belong to a guild so will they all belong to the guild on A or will they be kicked

Sorry totally didn't get that from your original post. I honestly have no clue and haven't read anything about that scenario. I'd presume they'd get removed if its taking all info from the home server. Maybe someone will clarify though.

Edit: Although it does say " as guilds are tied to your family name" so maybe you might get the guild from A. Really need a CM to answer that one.
