DC Universe Online Server Merges Begin Today

The DC Universe Online Facebook Page announces that the first of the previously announced server mergers for DC Universe Online is taking place today, beginning the process whereby the 26 servers for SOE's superhero MMORPG will be merged into four regionalized "MegaServers." This starts with the merger of European PC servers, which is, subject to change, to be followed Wednesday's U.S. PC merger, Thursday's U.S. PS3 merger, and the European PS3 merger slated for next Monday. They explain the downtime associated with this, how they are dealing with duplicate player and League names that this will result in, and how players will now be able to switch between PvP and PvP play on the same server. Here's word from DCUO executive producer Lorin 'DeadMeat' Jameson: "I am very excited about this move to MegaServers and I know that everyone is going to be happy with how this will expand your game play possibilities and the level of fun you have in DC Universe Online. We will be keeping everyone updated on the progress of this plan in the Announcements sections of the forums so stay tuned!" Thanks GameInformer.

Without any ire towards Sony or DCUO (not a player of any of their games), it's utterly ridiculous to launch an MMO in this day and age without shardless and scaleable server technology. Nothing says 'bad launch' like not having enough servers to handle the unpredictable load in the weeks after launch and nothing says 'dying MMO' like seeing news that they're 'merging servers'.
