today I'd like to end the day with several bits of information for you:
1. War Server merges
Since the war servers are special and we've encountered many issues during the merge so far, we decided to have a good and long look at the situation so far now and the war servers again. During that good, long look we noticed several things we'd need to do differently. Most important of which making sure we actually have enough spots on the target server. There's really no good reason to mess things up even more over the holidays now, so we've decided to postpone the war server merges until after the holiday season and make the necessary adjustments. What this means for you: all war servers remain as they are for a while longer. We'll make info posts about this again after the holiday season (=early in January).
We're aware of this being rather shocking now, however, it makes more sense to make the adjustments we found necessary during our evaluation than to go through with it just to run into those issues we think we may run into if we don't.
2. Graveyard players transferring to new servers, ending up in the top 50
We're obviously aware of this having happened. To be very clear and blunt about it right away: no, this should not have happened and we're sorry for this oversight. We're investigating the issue. Players having done so will be moved back to the graveyard servers.
3. Trade ships going missing
We're aware of that issue and it has been forwarded and is being worked on. Unfortunately we have no fix for it just yet.
4. Delay in fleet and troop actions
We're aware of that issue and it is still being investigated. As soon as we have a fix for that, we'll inform you.
