RIFT: Trion Answers Questions About Server Merges (Massively.com)

Despite a few months of RIFT being at the top of Raptr’s most played games, and despite having some great financial numbers, RIFT is going to undergo server merges.

The official announcement and details are over here.


Your spider-machine mount will still be pimpin' after the merge.

Next week’s RIFT server merge is far from the first time that the game has compressed its servers, but it’s still producing no shortage of anxiety and apprehension. The game’s community managers took to the forums to answer some of the more pressing questions, starting with the (unwelcome) news that the merged EU servers will wind up without a server flagged for roleplaying. Name changes will be necessary; surnames are possible for the future, but they will not be in place for the merges.

Players with more than the maximum number of characters after the merge will only have access to the first 12; players will need to delete existing characters to see the characters in overflow, but they will not be lost. Guild banks do not need to be emptied. Players are also reminded that characters can be transferred before the merger. The one bright point is the fact that the EU servers will have an auction house supporting French, English, and German clients at the same time, allowing all players in the region to interact successfully on the merged worlds.
