Post subject:  Server Transfer Announcement - WotV's New Home

Hello all,

As you all know, the gates to Snowbourn will be closing for a final time at the end of the year.

Over the last few weeks, the officer team have been researching into the options for our new home. We've been speaking to members about their thoughts, and spending time logged on the other servers to scout the path for our next adventure.

We are now happy to announce that, once Snowbourn transfers open, WotV will be building our new home on Evernight.

We're aware that some members would prefer to move to Laurelin, and we'll be sad to lose those that choose to part ways here. Thank you for choosing to journey with us until now, and know there will always be a home for you with WotV, wherever we may be.

We'll keep you updated with more details when we get them as to when we will be able to transfer the kinship - it won't be for a while yet, so watch this space!

We look forward to a new dawn for WotV on Evernight, and to exploring this next chapter for our kinship with friends old and new!

Elvi

Wonderful news as now I know my destination for both of my original homes!

Now the only issue is the stuff they're resolving with transfers...............

Do they have a rough schedule sort of thing that they've put together yet or are they still thinking on what order?

this is the thread where the official posts are lost in the mire of people's comments!

in summary:

- Snowbourn is the last EU server to be opened for transfer
- They are looking at beginning transfers off closing worlds in October, so we'll be looking at November, possibly December for our turn

Hi all,

I'm considering starting a new character over on Evernight. That was the first server I ever played on! The class I'm still looking at is the LM. I like the idea of having pets with me.

Well I hope you'll be hooking up with us when we arrive :-)

I love my LM too!

I can agree with Jar that LM's are loads of fun.

Easiest strategy: Let your bog guardian do all the work :lol:

I tried to do the 'placeholder name' thingie today that people have been talking about and suggesting. I tried four characters and it said their names were taken. I didn't try any others.

I don't want to be the ~1 person. I've had the chars whose names I tried since 2007. :(

Bog guardian, how I loathe thee. I was really annoyed they did that when they implemented the skill trees. I deliberately hadn't bothered to get my guardian with the Moria rep because I didn't want it. I DID however want my eagle, which I worked my ARSE off for with those damn level 45 quests, and then they gated the thing!

The new hardware is coming along great. We have all the equipment in place and built out and are now onto the arduous task of moving all of the software and data from the old hardware to new, making sure connections are correct, running QA tests etc. We should be having a load test on the new Bullroarer Beta world soon and will make announcements about it as soon as we have a date locked down. The aim is to have everything completed and live before the US Thanksgiving holiday. In the meantime we are monitoring the Evernight population closely, have added some additional hardware resources to it to increase capacity and if we start seeing issues we might have to slow down transfers, but we hope it will not come to that as I know everyone on the closing worlds is looking forward to their opportunity to transfer.

If the schedule keeps up on the way its going right now, then we should be transferring on the 15th of November.

Potentially, but we'll wait and see :)
