ArcheAge’s ‘altogether different’ approach to server merges

ArcheAge

Trion hasn’t formally announced server merges for ArcheAge yet, but the publisher is at least thinking about it, judging by a forum post made by community manager Evan “Scapes” Berman last Friday. Developer XLGAMES is working to automate the server transfer process, which is currently available in the game’s native Korea, and Trion says that when it becomes available in the west (“later this year”), it will also work for broad scale transfers.

So, is an ArcheAge server merge in the cards? Well, yes and no, according to Scapes: “We do not currently have plans to merge servers in the traditional sense. Instead, we plan something altogether different and look forward to revealing the plan as soon as we work out the details.”

ArcheAge players have long speculated that server merges will be hugely problematic due to the game’s limited land plots and the fact that they’re highly desired and even necessary for many gameplay activities.

Walah NobleNerd You don’t blame the community for dev decisions, and it is excessive to respond by such cries with 5 extra servers regardless.

They are just a poorly run company, now with Q4 projections they see they can’t possibly afford 22 NA/EU servers, and must downsize by half.

They will lose half of their playerbase with this bullshit server merge, which result in another land rush, which means the land hackers win in the end.  Trion has never had any ability to stop them.

kgptzac Esoteric Coyote The fact that XL/Trion didn’t handle it well does not invalidate the potential for persistent, open-world housing or land ownership.

Yeah, I was wondering if Trion was going to implement a similar Rift-type server-hopping the minute I saw this headline….

Not true. The game should have never had as many servers as it did. Anyone that played the other regions already knew this. The cries from the community when the game first released caused them to make way more servers than necessary.

Poor “pvp wolves” (as gangers called themeselves)…is time to go and cry on the next upcoming MMO for “world pvp” and insult on forums the pve players that will ask of a pve server…
One thing I know for sure, that if Archeage had pve server, I would be there and raising my farm and building my ship..I would have leveled different alts and so on..
