ArcheAge Merging Servers (Again) And There Will Be A Land Rush (Again)
gamigo is merging ArcheAge servers -- no, wait, it's server evolution -- next month. The free-to-play ArcheAge servers will be getting compacted on March 11, with pay-to-play ArcheAge Unchained getting smooshed down a week earlier. The EU servers Taris and Ezi will become Arkanis, while the NA Kadum and Nui servers will become Dochul. Unchained gets the even harsher treatment, as 12 servers will become four.
Of special note is the fact that land ownership -- a major part of both games that players constantly strive to obtain -- will be reset when the servers merge. That means another land grab shortly after the newly merged servers open up, which is usually a chaotic an messy affair that leaves nobody -- apart from a small number of super-players and/or hackers -- happy. Those land rushes are scheduled for March 20 in ArcheAge and March 13 in ArcheAge: Unchained, and gamigo has promised it "will be monitoring both servers closely" to ensure that no "land hacks" exploit the process.
On the bright side, all fully built structures will be refunded as kits and players will receive 250 Tax Certificates for each house or farm they own.
For more details on the server merge, including what will happen to all your non-land stuff, check out the FAQ on the ArcheAge forums.
