Title: Merge with Druzzil
Post by: Calixto on December 19, 2008, 11:34:27 PM
On January 21, 2009, EQ  will be consolidating "The Combine" server and "Druzzil Ro (Tarew Marr)" server into one server to be titled "Druzzil Ro (Tarew Marr, Combine)." The merge will begin at 3 a.m. PST and will last approximately five hours.

In addition, in conjunction with the upcoming EQ 10th Anniversary celebration, SOE is expecting to add a new EQ server in March 2009 and players will be able to vote on a new server type. To provide your input on the type of server you'd like, visit EQplayers.com in January.

We hope that these changes will provide players with an even more enjoyable EQ experience.

Character Names

Priority for character names will be based on the date the character was first created. Subsequent players with the same name will have an "x" appended to their name until a unique name can be determined. The same process will be applied to guild names. Players who wish to change their names can type "/changename" into their chat windows. Guilds that wish to change their names will need to use the "/petition" command.

Inactive Characters

Accounts with characters below level 10 that have been inactive for six months or more will be purged from the EQ system.

Accounts with More Than Eight Characters

Accounts with characters on the merging servers will have their character names alphabetized, and only the first eight listed will be accessible until characters are deleted to make room. Any characters past the first 8 are not deleted, they are simply inaccessible until one of the first 8 is deleted to make room.

Shared Banks

If a player's account has characters on both servers, the most recently updated bank will have priority unless it is empty. Players must empty out the shared bank they don't want to keep before the merge. If players wind up with the wrong shared bank (they didn't empty out the other one in time, etc.) they can use "/petition" to have the other shared bank copied over.

UI and Character Settings

All character UI and character settings will need to be reset.

Corpses

All corpses will be sent to Shadowrest.

EQ players

Player information will be updated to reflect new names/guilds/servers.

Artifacts

New servers will allow two of the same artifacts.

Server Transfers

Free server transfers from the surviving server (Druzzil Ro) will not be available in connection with this server merge.

I just got the email from sony...
Is this a bad or good news for us? Al I really hope is that we will remain the #1 guild of the server and be able to recruit more members!

Well I figured Calixto was playing a good one on us, but if Porc got the mail too then it must be real, and SoE is really just that stupid.

The servers are Druzzil Ro(Xev), or Drinal(Tarrow Marr). If they really are merging us...Don't you feel like your character is in good hands!

Half of us will end up on Drinal, half on Druzzil.

When they did merges in 2005 the higher population server kept its name.

Pravus Mortis is the top guild on Druzzil and according to progression chart they have only beaten 2 events in MMM along with BB / Queen as far as top content goes.

The Devs are dumb and seems got the names wrong, but I don't see an "or" in there anywhere.  I'm sure they aren't going to put half on one server and half on another.

You just said it youself. I was saying it sarcastically because the devs are indeed dumb. Jim and Joe will be in charge or moving everyone's characters, but Jim read Druzzil Ro(Tarrew Marr) and sent his half of the characters to Druzzil, while Joe gets tarrew marr stuck in his head and sends his half to Drinal. I'd give it a 50/50 chance.  :P

Greeting and Salutations Realm of Insanity.

Let me be the first to welcome you all to the Druzzil Ro server.  I hope you all will enjoy the new server.  Hopefully the merging of the servers will give both of us what we are missing.  Druzzil has not had a reputable higher end guild in quite some time, this will change on January 21.  Hopefully with the merge your raid numbers will be able to flourish on the new server.  I wish you all the best of luck in the future on the Druzzil server!

If you could make raids again simp you'd do fine.

We aren't really getting responses from anyone on Druzzil and there are no Rangers on the combine left other than Calixto and I.
