Servermerge and maintenance December 1st and 2nd

  • Dear players,



    we now have a date for the merge.



    The merge phase will start on 30.11.2021 12:00 server time, from which point on you will have 2 weeks to choose a target server from the available servers listed to you ingame.


    The choosing period ends on 14.12.2021 12:00 server time. Accounts that haven’t chosen a target server until then will be placed on target servers randomly assigned by the system.

  • Changes to Normal Server Transfer

    • From now on, transfer items will be available in the shop.
    • Various transfer items are available that can be used to make different numbers of transfers, up to the maximum number of Town Relocations.
    • The transfer items remain in your inventory as usual. You don’t have to use them immediately and you can also stock up by buying several items.
    • To transfer, you need to use one of the items from the inventory.
    • After using the transfer item, you will be redirected to the transfer page:
      • Once there, you choose a target country and a target server from the list.
      • You can use the “Inspect Destination” button to check whether you can relocate to that server. In addition, you will see which fields are still free on the server.
      • Use the “Start Transfer Now” button to start the transfer. If it is not possible, the transfer aborts and the transfer item is not used. The reason for the failed transfer is then displayed.
    • If you leave the transfer page without completing the move, the transfer item will not be used and will become inactive again. You must reactivate it to start a new transfer.
    • Transfers can cause a loss of resources in active fleets.
    • After a successful transfer, your account on the old server will be locked before it is deleted there. Your account on the new server will be displayed in the lobby.
    • After a move, you will be rewarded with temporary premium access and items.
    • After you move, you will automatically be in vacation mode until you log in for the first time.
    • The following rules apply for transfers:
      • You cannot move to a server where you would immediately be in the top 50 of the rankings.
      • You cannot move between normal and war servers.
      • If your name has already been taken, you cannot move. You will have to change it first.
    • Other (alliances etc.) remain the same.

    Server Merge

    • If a server merge is initiated, all players will receive a notification at login and an in-game indication of how long the server merge will continue.
    • The transfer page shows you the progress of the server merge and includes FAQs about it.
    • During the server merge, you will not be able to register on the corresponding servers.
    • Any player can move free of charge to one of the servers displayed on the site, subject to the following:
      • You cannot move to a server where your name already exists.
    • The servers will be closed as soon as the server merge time expires.
    • Any account that has not been moved is automatically transferred to a random target server.
    • After the server transfer is complete, you will receive the same number of town relocations as you have towns at the time of the transfer.
    • Inactive accounts are moved to the Asphodel server (see “Other Changes”).
    • If your name is already taken after a forced transfer, you will automatically be assigned a new one.
    • You will not be able to use normal server transfer items while a server merger is in progress.
    • The Festival of Worlds takes place on the target servers. For players who have relocated, this will run for 7 days longer.

    Other Changes

    • The merchant ships which you earn by inviting friends to place will become permanent ships with the server update to the new game version. These are no longer locked to friends and will also accompany you during server moves.
    • Inactive accounts will be moved to the Asphodel server from now on.
      • Asphodel is a special unplayable server.
      • You can return to active servers from here at no cost.
      • The transfer process is the same as outside the Asphodel server.

  • Dear players,



    unfortunately we have to postpone the merge by two more days again.


    Thanks to your reports on the PTR as well as the efforts of our QA we found some more things that needed fixing.



    Furthermore we want to bring back the ingame ip sharing functionality at full, meaning: you will not need to create support tickets to announce your IP sharings but can continue to use the ingame function as you are used to right now.



    The corresponding update maintenance will therefore take place on 01.12.2021 between 10:00 and 15:00 (CET).



    The merge phase will start on 02.12.2021 12:00 server time, from which point on you will have 2 weeks to choose a target server from the available servers listed to you ingame.


    The choosing period ends on 16.12.2021 12:00 server time. Accounts that haven’t chosen a target server until then will be placed on target servers randomly assigned by the system.

  • Dear players,


    due to unforeseen technical circumstances the merge for all countries that will merge to BG as well as the war servers will start at 14:00 CET instead of 12:00 CET. This does NOT affect all the other countries and servers. This only affects BG, RS, SI, SK, YU and the war servers.
