have word that free character transfers are coming on December 2 to Mythic's MMORPG, which is the positive news coming out of the plan to close another two US servers, Dark Crag and Phoenix Throne (thanks IncGamers
). Here's word:
Here at Mythic Entertainment we have always placed a high value on our communities and the players that make them up. This is especially true when it comes to our special rule-set servers like Role-Playing and Open RvR. There are many different things that have to be taken into consideration in order to nurture these communities. At the same time, WAR is a game that thrives on player interaction; whether it’s Public Quests, fast paced Scenario action or the thrill of large-scale Open-field Realm vs. Realm battles. Both of these factors must be taken under consideration when deciding the future of our unique rule-set servers.
For the past 14 months the Dark Crag and Phoenix Throne servers have been the home of two vibrant and passionate communities. We have watched these servers with great interest as they have journeyed through some amazing accomplishments since the launch of WAR, such as the first ever king kill on a North American server.
And so, it is after careful evaluation and much discussion that we are announcing free character transfers off of the Dark Crag and Phoenix Throne servers. At this time we plan to enable these free character transfers on Wednesday, December 2nd. Below are the prospective destination servers for both Phoenix Throne and Dark Crag:
Phoenix Throne will be able to transfer to either Iron Rock OR Badlands
Dark Crag will be able to transfer to either Gorfang OR Volkmar
In order to welcome all of our players to their new homes we will be enabling a 20% bonus to experience and renown during the weeks following the open character transfers.
Have a happy holiday and we’ll see you on the battlefield!
Thank you for your continued support.
Please keep conversation in this thread civil and on topic.
