Progression Server Merge

Progression Server Merge - MMORPG.com

The Sleeper and Combine Everquest Progression servers will be merged on March 21st, 2007.

On March 21, 2007, we will be merging the EverQuest Progression Servers. Characters will be moved from The Sleeper server to The Combine server and The Combine server will retain its name. The Sleeper server will then be closed. In addition, we will be doing a character wipe on these servers for all characters that are below level 10 that have not been logged in within 90 days of the merge date will be deleted.

Check back on the EQPlayers Website on Monday, March 12, 2007 for updated information about the merge. We will provide the answers to other questions as needed before the merge.

Questions and Answers about the Merge:

Q: What will be the name of the server after the merge?

A: Characters will be moved from the Sleeper to the Combine server and the Combine server will retain its name.

Q: What will determine who gets to keep their character names?

A: Characters that have the longest played time will keep the character name. Characters that require a name change will have an x placed at the end of their name.

Q: What will determine which guild gets to keep its name?

A: Guilds with the oldest creation date on these servers will be able keep the guild name on the newly merged server. Guilds that require a guild name change will have an x placed at the end of the name.

Q: If my character name has to be changed how do I change it?

A: Check back on the EQPlayers Website on Monday, March 12, 2007 for information about getting your character renamed.

Q: If my guild name has to be changed how do I change it?

A: If a gets an x placed at the end of the guild name due to the merge, only the Guild Leader should /petition to get a new name for the guild. Be sure to provide a list of new guild names that you would prefer in case you are not available when the petition is being addressed. Please do not reserve the guild name with other characters.

Q: Does time in trader mode count toward time played for purposes of deciding who will have the X next to their name?

A: Yes being in trader mode counts towards played time.

Q: How do I make sure I keep my character User Interface and other character settings?

A: If your character switched servers, you can simply, rename the related ini files for your characters in the EverQuest directory. There are two files you will need to change; these files exist whether you have a customized User Interface or not:

Character_server.ini - This file stores friends and ignore lists, hotbuttons, ability and combat buttons that have been set.

UI_character_server.ini - This file stores the placement of your windows

Example: If your character name is Bobbie on the Sleeper server you would check the EverQuest folder for Bobbie_sleeper.ini and UI_Bobbie_sleeper.ini and change the name to Bobbie_combine.ini and UI_Bobbie_combine.ini.

Q: What will happen to my corpse?

A: It would be best to loot your corpse where available however, corpses will be processed with the merge. If a character gets an x placed on its name, the corpse will also get an x. Be sure to loot your corpse before getting the name changed.

Q: What happens with my information on EQPlayers?

A: All characters that have been moved from The Sleeper server to The Combine server will need to select Update EQPlayers under Characters in the EQ menu in game.
