Merge Plan Notice

Recommended Posts

Greetings Inheritors,

 

We have been receiving a lot of feedback from all of you recently and have decided to merge ArcheAge and ArcheAge: Unchained services, which was one of the topics most frequently brought up. We went through many discussions and concluded that we could not provide you a smooth gameplay experience with the game's current servers. Especially, in the case of ArcheAge: Unchained, the population per server has reached a point where it is no longer possible for you to enjoy systems are they were designed to be. Unfortunately, with the current server population, we can't continue servicing ArcheAge: Unchained alone. We regret to inform this decision to our ArcheAge: Unchained players.

 

Although, comparatively speaking, we can continue servicing ArcheAge, we internally reviewed if merging ArcheAge and ArcheAge: Unchained would be possible to provide you a better gameplay experience and a more stable service, and are now preparing for the actual merge. We hope the merge of ArcheAge and ArcheAge: Unchained leads to an active and lively field PvP as well as Faction War. Players in the server that has recently opened have been sharing their concerns regarding the merge. We are trying to come up with different ways to aid those players who are not strong enough to compete with the existing players yet upon merge. We sincerely apologize to our ArcheAge: Unchained players once again that this decision had to be made.

 

The merge will take place during the maintenance on November 30 (Thurs). Below are the details of the specs that are applied upon server merge which are subject to change.
