Legendary author Douglas Adams once quipped “I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”

Realizing that this is neither a promise or guarantee, Windstalker has given us a glimmer of detail about the much-needed Server Merges that will merge a number of lower-population Live PvE servers…

.@Henry15Stefans we are targeting end of august for #eq2 merges/consolidation.

    I still think some form of open cross server travel for gold sub members would have been so much better. /..\

    I think the intention is that cross-server is still coming in addition to these server merges – but won’t be ready for a couple of months or so yet.

    Whether the cross-server will just be limited to dungeon finder or not though will be interesting to see.

    ‘Maybe’ only a month off and not even a hint about which servers are being considered….

    I’m hoping for a merge of Splitpaw and Antonia Bayle. That would save me a lot of money 🙂

    I don’t think they will be a merge of just 2 servers, I believe we will go down to about 4 servers. Which is why its taking forever

    With Stormhold being launched I have quit playing on AB, but they do need to merge the servers.

    I’ll get excited when I see who gets merged where.

      AND WTH IS SOMETHING like that not on the forums, but through a twitter account. Haven’t they learned to leave twitter alone?

        I don’t mind. It drives traffic here. 😉

        But mostly I think Community and Marketing want to be involved in all important customer messaging, which can get complicated and time consuming. But Holly can drop a tweet on a weekend or from outside the office.

    I’m hoping things won’t be messed up on servers for a week or so when this happens. At least good old steam is always there when I need other distractions!

    With Holly on TLE at the weekend asking about lag for EU players I bet Splitpaw is going to”merge” with at least one U.S. Server and then be located in the U.S. Making it a lot easier for cross server dungeon finder etc

    Well nothing official on the forums, or facebook, only twitter. It will be interesting to find out who/where/when and what, the main 4 answers we ask.

    They should have merged servers before doing the TLE servers.
