Some thing I have asked already week's ago still not answered:
What happens if we have more characters then slots after the merge?

New questions: (asked by others as well)
What happens to our legacy levels
What happens if we already have a legacy on merge server but want to keep one from current server.
How will forced name change be sorted to be fair, ie F2p people or those that are no longer active, but may have had theirs first.
What happens to guild names as above.

If we get a free transfer before the closure mergers, will these be direct to West coast servers or just between APAC servers.

If the former (APAC to West coast), do all characters go to one place or can I make new toons now to 'seed' my legacy level over multiple servers, and is there an order in which we transfer which could influence who gets name rights on the destination server.

If the latter (APAC to APAC to West Coast) are we getting two times name screwed by taking advantage of this offer?

They've given us all the information that they have decided to. When the time comes, they will tell us what we need to know. Last time servers merged, it went pretty smoothly and entire guilds were moved. I don't like this, but it is what it is. They have decided. It appears that they are not in any hurry. I, for one, am in no hurry to change servers either, so how things are suits me just fine. Getting excited over it changes nothing, so I choose not to. I gave them my opinion. I'm sure it matters not, in the grand scheme of things. I'm just resolved to wait and see, since I have no alternative.

Have they actually confirmed they will 100% be doing server merg? I see all kinds of people presuming this is going to happen. Sure I think its the best option cause things are rather slow in game for us alot of the time, however unless I am missing a yellow post, I believe there have only been two primary posts from -eric? from what I'm reading I don't think they have said 100% this merg is happening?

The reason why I say this is based on what I am reading from yellow posts from -eric .

Part of first yellow post from -eric:

"With this in mind, we have evaluated all of the options and determined that the best solution, that will offer the best long term play experience, is to merge the APAC servers with higher populated North American servers."


And again in the next yellow post -eric acknowledges merging is the best option:

"It was because of this that we decided that moving APAC into the NA servers was the best option."

However, in this same yellow post note -eric also states:

"If we move APAC to NA some folks will see increased latency"


So in summary my interpretation is: "Yes we think merging the APAC servers with the US in our mind is the best thing to do, however we are not quite 100% sure yet if this will be happening." Agree?

The thing that concerns me the most about this is by not giving a 100% indication that this could draw this process out even longer.

Did you expect anything else? What I want them to address, is why they can't open transfers to Dalborra first as a trial of a Superserver. Then make a decision on whether to keep it or not.

Unsubbed. Will play till my 20 days of sub left finishes then uninstall. Pretty pissed off about a lot of things in this game tbh.

How are you going to address the lag issue that many APAC players experience on the U.S. servers?

Lol, you really expect them to do anything beyond the bare minimum of dumping us back on the US servers?

These were all asked and answered during the two rounds of server mergers. I believe the FAQ for such is still on the site (or searchable in the forums). I would imagine the answers to be the same as there would be nothing that would change them.
