Server Merge Delayed

Server Merge Delayed -

Aion developers have announced that the anticipated server merges will take place later than planned. Now set for July 14th, devs indicated that the delay was implemented to deal with any issues arising from characters with the same names being placed on the same server.

Once the merge occurs, a character with a name that is up to 14 letters long will have a two-letter server abbreviation added to the end of the name. For example, “Fergreedy” on Azphel would become “FergreedyAZ” after the merge.

A character name that is 15 letters long will have a one-letter server abbreviation added to the end of the name. For example, “Misterhappyface” on Azphel would become “MisterhappyfaceA”.  

In the rare instance that two characters transferring to a merged server share the same name and it is 16 letters long, one of the characters will be renamed. We understand that this is an inconvenience, and regret the need to change anyone’s character name.  We will keep a close eye on the few characters that this name conflict will affect, and can confidently say the percentage of this occurrence will be very low.

Lastly, we’ll be providing all Daevas with a free Character Name Change ticket so that they can later pick a new name.

Read the rest of the announcement.
