A new update on official servers
FEBRUARY 9 - COMMUNITY MANAGER (JENS ERIK)
A week ago we made the tough decision to end the partnership with our previous official server partner (see statement from 03.02.2017 for more information). Since then we’ve been working hard on getting new official servers online. You have been incredibly patient with us in this matter and we wanted to reach out and express our thanks for your patience.
We also have some good news for you. Today, when the next patch is released, we’ll start the process of bringing official servers back online.
First 81 servers will be going up in the US, with 31 European servers going up tomorrow. Servers will start with a player cap of 40, but this will increase as we monitor performance on the new hardware and are able to ensure an acceptable level of stability and server performance. The plan was for players to keep their progress, but we encountered some instances of corrupt data. Be prepared that there is a change your progress has been lost.
We are still waiting on hardware for servers on the west coast of the US, South America, Eastern Europe and Oceania. We will be receiving more hardware over the next few weeks and these servers will go up when the hardware is available. We know a lot of players in these territories are waiting for the official servers come up and we’re working hard to make that happen. We truly appreciate your patience.
We also wanted to make a comment about server settings: The settings on the official servers are not “the way we intended the game to be played”. We intended for server admins to create a wide variety of servers with different settings to players could choose a server that best fit their playstyle. We high encourage you to explore the thousands of player-run servers that are out there to find a server that suits you best.
Once again we thank you for your patience.
Your cross awaits, exiles.
