WAR: Server Cloning to Ease Overcrowding

Posted Thu, Sep 18, 2008 by Taea

Mark Jacobs of Mythic Entertainment published a letter to the community yesterday. After reviewing the Code of Conduct for Warhammer Online, it was decided the window would not need to be clicked everytime players log in. The EULA window will still require acknowledgement every time. Even more improvements have been made to lessen game crashes, and several full servers will see some relief.

Since we launched the Head Start program, we have told people that after launch we would allow them to move characters from a high population server to a low population server free of charge.

Tomorrow morning, we will begin a process to essentially clone (who says you can’t mix sci-fi and fantasy) all character, Auction House and guild information of several of our high population servers to brand new servers. Players and guilds can choose which server (old, new or both!) they wish to play on. Nobody’s characters will be deleted and because they are being copied to clean servers, everyone gets to keep their names and their guild names. As far as we know nobody has done this before in the MMORPG industry and we are proud to be the first to offer this to our players.

So, it is up to you, whether you are just an individual player or guild to stay on the existing server or to move to the new server. Here are the servers that are being moved and the names of their clones:

Phoenix Throne => White Tower

Skull Throne => Tower of Doom

Volkmar => Magnus

Badlands => Mordheim

Dark Crag => Eerie Downs

Once again we have shown our commitment to make WAR the best MMORPG on the market both through our commitment to game development and customer service.
