ArcheAge : Character Transfers & Possible 'Non-Traditional' Mergers

Posted May 26, 2015 by Suzie Ford

The Trion team spent the last couple of weeks visiting XLGames in Korea to discuss the way that player characters are transferred from one server to another. At the moment, it is a manual process but the team is working to release an automated option in the near future.

In addition, the possibility of server merges received brief notice:

We do not currently have plans to merge servers in the traditional sense. Instead, we plan something altogether different and look forward to revealing the plan as soon as we work out the details.

Check out the discussion on the ArcheAge forum or here on the MMORPG.com forum.

Posted May 25, 2015 by William Murphy

It’s been awhile since we last saw an installment to the living story, and the HoT expansion is still a good bit further down the road, we expect.  Still, we can see how our past actions continue change, and evolve the world of Tyria.  Scarlet left Lion’s Arch a mess, but now is the time to repair, rebuild, and look towards the future.

The Witcher 3 : 5 Things MMOs Could Learn from The Witcher 3

Posted May 25, 2015 by William Murphy

Like most things, it seems like we go through phases of getting big, sprawling single-player RPGs to sink our teeth into. It’s a totally different genre than the MMO game, for rightful reasons, but there are a lot of overlaps as well. Most people that enjoy MMOs probably enjoy single-player RPGs as well and I’d wager to say that the majority of the people that read this are either playing currently or at least have an interest in playing, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. If not, you should. Our review –in-progress seems to be indicating it’s a pretty awesome game so far!

EverQuest : Ragefire Progression Server Reopens

Posted May 22, 2015 by Suzie Ford

Daybreak Game Company has announced that the Everquest progression server, Ragefire, has reopened. The server will run alongside current servers, but players will be able to experience the game as it was at launch in 1999 and as expansions launched over the years.

Q: Which versions of zones will be on the server?

Like the previous two Progression Servers, zones that were graphically revamped (Freeport, Commonlands, Nektulos, Lavastorm, Ro) will be in their revamped form. Our Progression servers have to co-exist with live servers, so we need to have the same geometry running on all of them. In cases where the geometry was the same but population changed, we will use the original populations where possible:

  • Splitpaw - Will begin in its first revamped form (with the Ishva Mal).
  • Cazic-Thule - Will begin in the form after Rubicite was removed.
  • The Hole - Will begin in its first form (with Master Yael).
  • Plane of Hate - Will be in the current layout, but with population much like the original zone after the first loot revamp.
  • Plane of Fear - Will have population the same as the first loot revamp.
  • Droga/Nurga - Original population.
  • Firiona Vie - Original population.
  • Veeshan's Peak - Original population, but no death restrictions.
  • Plane of Mischief - Original population. The "easy" entrance will not be active until it changes to the current version.
  • Grimling Forest - Original population.
Zones that are set up in this manner will transition to their current datasets in roughly the same timeframe as they originally changed.

The team has a great Q&A for players interested in Ragefire on the EverQuest forum.
