gamigo Produces Timetable For Transferring Your ArcheAge Account To Kakao Games
Transfer process begins Nov. 18, with gamigo's service shutting down on Dec. 1.
When we learned that Kakao Games would take over publishing rights for ArcheAge from gamigo "in December," that wasn't exactly the case. gamigo will end its ArcheAge service on December 1, but there are other dates to keep in mind, as gamigo outlined in a post today explaining in detail what players will need to do to keep their data intact.
The really important date is November 18. That's when gamigo will perform maintenance on ArcheAge and there will be a page set up that lets you transfer your character between services. It's important to note that there's no set date for when Kakao will start its ArcheAge service. Additionally, while you can keep playing on gamigo's service until the company takes ArcheAge offline on the first of December, none of your progress will be saved past the date when you initiate the transfer.
In other words, if you're a regular ArcheAge player, you'll probably have to make do without the game for a few weeks while Kakao spins everything up. If you're a less-regular player, you'll still want to get the code that lets you transfer your account between services, which will be valid for several months.
gamigo has produced a more detailed FAQ explaining the transfer on its forums. Some data and forms of progress will be lost: guilds will be reset to level one, mails will be deleted, and your friends list will be wiped. Significantly, all players will lose their land as part of the transfer, and gamigo warns that "There will be a land rush, but the time and date has to be determined yet." Better make sure to take that day off from work or school, because if previous land rushes are any indication, all the good spots will be claimed within about five minutes of the servers opening up.
