The servers will be taken offline Wednesday, June 14th at:
- 10:00 - 15:00 Central European Time (CEST)
- 01:00 - 06:00 Pacific Daylight Time (PDT)
- 09:00 - 14:00 Western European Summer Time (Ireland, Portugal and UK)
- 11:00 - 16:00 Eastern European Summer Time (Romania, Bulgaria, Estonia, Greece, Turkey, etc)
The purpose of taking the servers offline is to perform the server merge.
The Guild Tournament this week will be cancelled and registration will reopen as normal at the beginning of the next week.
We are currently aware that players who are coming from various servers may be worried about their rank resetting on leaderboards. Ranks won't be reset however with the merge your place on the ranking boards will be changed in accordance to your new position taking into account players from both servers. You will still however be rewarded and we will explain this to you below by using Moonsea and Corral as examples:
Let’s say we have 200 people on the ranking board for Moonsea and the lowest person on the ranking board has 10,000 Might, and on Corral the lowest person on the board has 5,000 Might, everyone on the merged server who has anything above 5,000 might will be rewarded with a compensation item known as the ‘Cosmic Elite Pack’. This pack will give you awards Imperial Notes and Bronze Shards which ranges all the way up to 2,888,888 Imperial Notes and 288,888 Bronze Shards. In this example, every person on the merged server who is above 5,000 Might will receive a reward and this will not be exclusive to those who re-appear back on the ranking board.
Those of you who have previously completed and obtained server-firsts for various dungeons in the past will still keep your Titles, Achievements and Cosmetics, however, you will find that your statue will no longer be present at the dungeon as this is what is being reset. You can run through the dungeon once more with other friends or guild members to help them obtain achievements and regain your statue, or if you only managed to obtain one Server-First achievement, you can go ahead and tackle others to obtain more to get further achievements, titles and cosmetics for your character.
By not resetting the Server-Firsts we would have provided unfair treatment from those coming from the secondary server (Corral, Eventide, Muroc, Tusenwood) merging with the primary servers (Moonsea, Tidewater, Darkfall and Snowpine) as the system would then have to decide who would get to keep their statue and who would not. This also opens up opportunities for those who want to compete again for other achievements which we previously touched upon.
After discussing a suggestion with the team made by one of the community members it was decided that for those of you who have currently hold Server-Firsts, we will be providing a ‘Hall of Fame’ web-page in the near future which will allow you to have your name and achievement immortalised on this webpage in recognition of your achievements - we will be providing more details on this to once everything has been finalized.
The server-first maintenance will take place next Monday, June 19th, 19:00 until 20:00 CEST for EU servers and 6pm until 7pm PDT for NA servers.
Approximately 5 hours, from 10:00 to 15:00 CEST/01:00 to 06:00 PDT.
During the maintenance, all servers will be inaccessible to all players.
