If the new server is just an extension of entity does that mean my characters will be the same? If not what happen to the new ones when the merge is made?

 

They'll be placed on the current servers which means if you're a F2P user you'll have to either delete an existing character on Entity or buy a character slot so that when the merger occurs you don't go over your character slot limit and get locked out of a character.

Thank you for making this decision, I hope it works out for those having such constant trouble.  I have been fortunate to have little issue.  I'm am glad to see you went with moderation this time.

 

 

If I may make a suggestion, for the time being you may want to considered opening free server transfer between the server types, PvE to PvE and PvP to PvP at least if not PvE to PvP and vise versa.  This way new and old players can still meet up for the time being but will eventually be all in one place once it settles down and is merged.  This of course is assuming that doing so wouldn't mess up something of a technical nature.

When you over fill a bucket with water and them set another empty bucket next to it... and direct the water flow into the new bucket...  Does the over full bucket become any less full?  Or do you need to poor some from the full bucket into the new bucket to releave the fullness?

 

This analogy isn't accurately describing whats going on, its a gating issue, from everything I've seen.  Imagine you have a pipe hanging over a bucket, with a hole in it, only so much water can get into that bucket, the size of the bucket is irrelevant.  The problem is that the hole isn't big enough.  So they are making more holes to allow more water(people) in the bucket(mega server), not more buckets.

Why pour water from Glass A, into Glass B, to pour it right back into Glass A?

because you've been making glass A bigger in the mean time.

They are most certainly adding another bucket... they are also splitting the pipe as you put into 2.

 

Actually I think it's more like using a funnel to fill the bucket... and the funnel is getting backed up... so they are adding a second bucket with a second funnel... the original hose is still filling the first bucket... and they've added a second hose for the second bucket...  so the first bucket will continue to have the same problems it's having now as none of the flow is being directed away from it.

 

Everyday the over abundance of people already on A will try to cram through the funnel on A unless there are transfers to allow them to go to B.  Once the Funnel on A is upgraded to handle the flow then B can be poored into A.

Hey Everyone -

Thanks for all of your questions. I'll be updating the forums post with a FAQ and answers in the next day. I see that there's some confusion about timing, and the merger process in particular, and I hope I can help.

In regards to timing, we're looking to do this within the next 24 hours and we'll update you as to when that can happen when we have more information. We want to make sure that we've addressed everything before we make this move. And, in regards to the merger - a merger of the realms will happen once after dramatically improving the game experience, reducing lag, and improving queues.


But the question is: we can transfer our character to the new server? And if yes, gor free?

Thanks

Thanks very much for the update.

Simply letting us know what is going on and that you're working on it goes a long way.

We'll see you on Nexus!

not very likely on either imo. obv their ressources are needed somewhere else atm than moving chars from x to y.

This is a hotfix implemented for NEW players (level1)

This is good news.  Stress on the current 2 servers have been a pain for everyone.

Yes. You'll be able to transfer characters for free between "sister-servers" (e.g. Jabbit and Jabbit-2). This will be free while there are multiple servers - but we've planned to charge for it as part of free-to-play, so we'll get back to that after services are normalized.

this is truely awesome :)

 

and before someone asks... the merging back is also free.

so you can transfer your level 11 (or whatever) char to the new server

for example EU PVE1 to EU PVE2,

NOT EUPVE1 to EUPVP2

or EU TO NA

or NA TO EU

Yep. We're hoping this full addresses it - but this is our first F2P weekend - it's hard to gauge just how many people will be coming in. 

 

It's a good problem to have, for sure, but we still want to resolve it. We want people playing, not tanking the queue boss.

WTH and i thought we had Mega Servers.

 

Splitting the cmmunity up again, hm not smart.

 

And after the launch pressure will be gone, what becomes of the Servers?

 

Will the merge to one or what?

So what would one benefit from transfering to the sister server? Will players from Jabbit-1 be able to communicate with people from Jabbit-2, and see them in openworld, join the same guild?  When will the merge happen? And post merge, what happens to the hardware for e.g. Jabbit-2, will it be used or scrapped? From what I've read "Megaserver" is just a name and not the actual technology?

They will merge them when they fix the stability issues.
