We’re excited to announce that we will be consolidating 9 of our servers into 3 massive conglomerates. This server merge will improve Ministry of War’s gameplay by providing players with new and exciting competitors as well as a fresh start for Contested Zones.
The servers involved in this merger are listed below:
Group 1: ANNIHILATION & TSUMANI & JUSTICE
Group 2:SURVIVORS & QIRIMIRAGE & VICTORIA
Group 3:DESTINY & KINGDOM & DESTROYER
There will be a backend maintenance involved to complete this task, we will be taking the servers offline around 21:00 PST Jan. 30th 2012.Please keep an eye on your in game mail to see the exact time and duration of the maintenance.
You may be curious as to what the new server names will be, that’s where you come in. We will be holding a Guild event to determine who gets to name the newly merged server. This is a rare opportunity to really make your mark in Ministry of War. Don’t miss out; check out more information on the events page and in your in-game mailbox.
What You Can Expect
Account and Characters
If you have characters on more than 1 servers to be merged under a same account, we will designate the character from ANNIHILATION / SURVIVORS/ DESTINY as the default hero. A new account will be created automatically on the other 2 servers in order to accommodate the new characters. The new account will be made the following changes:
Group 1: old name_CP8forTSUMANI, old name_CP8CP8 forJUSTICE.
Group 2: old name_CP9forQIRIMIRAGE, old name_CP9CP9 forVICTORIA.
Group 3: old name_CP10forKINGDOM, old name_CP10CP10 forDESTROYER.
If you have characters on different servers and they are under different accounts, the characters will be immigrated to ANNIHILATION / SURVIVORS/ DESTINY.
If your character needs to be renamed, the new name will be “old name*”. Another *will be added if necessary until the character names are different.
If there is a duplicate of your guild name, the new guild name will be “old name_CP”. Another _CP will be added if necessary until the names are no longer the same.
If there is a duplicate guild flag, a random color will be given to the new flag.
