A quiet, but necessary, program began today over at Tulga's Horizons. More appropriately, 10 days from now, users who own more land plots than they have subscriptions will begin to recieve e-mails. The goal in this is to be able to re-distribute the plots of inactive accounts (and those of people who have too many), throughout the game.
What is Plot Reclamation?
Plot reclamation is the process by which we will reclaim plots from inactive subscriptions and auction them back to the active community.
Why do we have Plot Reclamation?
We are doing this because there are many plots that the community worked hard to build and now they lay unused or inaccessible. We want to give all of our active players a chance to claim a piece of Istaria and continue to build their community.
Who is affected by Plot Reclamation?
Plot reclamation will affect inactive subscriptions or those active players with more plots then subscriptions. Each player's Horizons account can have one or more subscriptions and each subscription entitles a player to plot ownership in Horizons – multiple subscriptions does entitle multiple plot ownership. Any subscription that becomes inactive reduces the number of plots that can be owned and an email will be sent to the owner of the accounts who own more plots than their number of subscriptions allows. This email explains that the number of plots exceeds the number of active subscriptions. The player needs to either add or reactivate a subscription, or sell off their extra plots. The email provides a time frame for this action. If nothing is done, plots will be randomly selected and auctioned back to the community so that the number of plots owned by an account matches the number of subscriptions.
