To provide you with a more enjoyable gaming experience and to provide more competition, we’re going to Merge Servers on Tuesday, December 20th, 2016, US server time at 1:00 AM CST and EU server time at 7:00 AM GMT for estimated 3 hours. During this time, the server will be down and you cannot play the game. The servers that will be merged are as followed:
1. Log-in Rules
a. For the first time when a player logs onto the new server, the system will check if his/her character name was duplicated, if so, the player will be asked to change his/her character name based on the log-in sequence between/among the characters with same name.
b. If a player has multiple characters in the merged servers, the data won’t be removed or covered after server merger, instead, the player can select the character s/he wants to continue with by logging in the original server.
For example: Server #1 – Server #5 are merged and Player A has characters on both Server #2 and Server #5. He can continue with the Server #2 character by selecting “S2” when logging in, so does his/her Server #5 character.
2. Arena Ranking Rules
The Arena Ranking will reset based on the log-in sequence of the players instead of basing on Battle Power, also, the winning streak for Arena Battles will reset after server mergers.
3. Seireitei Protection Rules
After server mergers, the winner of the first Guild War will be the defending guild of Seireitei.
