ArcheAge goes offline for two days for 2.0 and server merges

    
93

ArcheAge is beginning its great 48-hour blackout today as Trion Worlds rolls out Update 2.0 while simultaneously merging several servers in its “evolution” initiative. “It made more sense to do this all at the same time so we’d only have one united land rush and one set of guild restructuring,” Trion explained.

The studio posted a helpful FAQ to educate players on what will happen during this time and what to expect when the servers come back up on Saturday. Come the weekend, there will be three types of servers: legacy servers that aren’t affected by the merge, evolution servers that are made up of merged shards, and a pair of fresh-start servers for those looking for a new beginning.

The update will be a major upheaval to land owners, as all Diamond Shores houses will be demolished on legacy servers, and players everywhere will be scrambling to secure land plots for their homes. Trion says that it will work to avoid additional server merges and will be creating an automated transfer system for the future.

NobleNerd I like watching the BBB complaints. That is a way to deal with these company’s. I filed one when AA came out of closed beta. I bought a package to do the closed beta and when the game launched to was plagued by massive queues so I logged a complaint got a refund from Trion thanks to Scott Hartsman and still got to keep my founders pack.

So…. in 2 days the shit will hit the fan. I will watch for the huge complaint forum post of all the issues this will cause.

Not really, I’ll give probably 60% of the blame to XL. They failed to do anything about the hacking and botting in the KR and RU servers. When they released the NA and EU servers those kinks should have been ironed out or at least minimized. Trion’s bad monetization and management pretty much guaranteed its doom for those who can overlook the cheating.

Talizzar MinionDave  Worse I’d not be surprised if they did it intentially either.

Reminds me of back in the first 4-5 months of Defiance when their twitch streams discussing it were full of contradictory statements and just out right lies.  Then when Turretgate crap hit the fan followed quickly by the SD office scuttling, their entire twitch steam archives were “lost” with the now canned, director of community giving some sort of vapid excuse. It was just too convenient at the time(especially when you factor their removing some of their blog posts about the game at the same timing “mysteriously” and stopped allowing commenting on it).
