If you happen to be an Aussie who likes to play PlanetSide 2, listen up: Your regional server is about to be merged and put down. On Tuesday, August 27th, at 9:00 a.m. EDT, the Briggs server will merge with the Japanese SolTech server. That same morning, there will be a character transfer window opened between SolTech and the US West Connery server until Monday, September 30th, should players wish to make the migration.
According to the forum post announcing the merge, the population on Briggs was too small to justify the operating costs. “We appreciate the support the game has received from all of the Briggs players and hope they will continue to play PlanetSide 2 on either SolTech or Connery servers for the foreseeable future,” Daybreak says. “Our apologies if this announcement seems a bit late, we spent a very long time weighing all our options as to how best to proceed.”
