- All servers will be set to central time zone, changing all the siege, arena, and dred times. Some servers may later be set back to another time zone after things have settled down and the times themselves are set to change to allow for a wider variety of time zones to participate in sieges/arenas/dred.
- Zikel will be merged into Vaizel and the server will be renamed to New Tiamat. All characters and legions on Zikel that conflict with characters and legions on Vaizel will be given names consisting of random characters. Everybody on Zikel will get name change and a plastic surgery ticket per character for any changes that need to be made. Legions on Zikel may get a name change ticket for free as well. MAKE SURE TO TAKE THE NAME YOU WANT ON VAIZEL IF YOU WANT TO KEEP IT. Edit: updated news from Nyx states that "There will be a specific clause regarding inactive accounts, so that you will not lose your name to someone who hasn't logged in since 2009 :) " and that there will be a name appeal process
- The merge will be completed March 28th and characters from both sides will be playable on the same account until April 11, 2012.
- Characters with conflicts will receive a free transfer.
People with race conflicts have to get a transfer before the 11th. It is a shame to see such a merger just before the game goes f2p where all servers are likely to immediately fill. This may be a bit of cynicism, but is it possible that NCsoft West is trying to save money on getting a new server and is squashing the old servers together just to avoid starting a new server like Gameforge did when they launched.
Give us your opinions.
