Bad times for FunCom's Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures MMO. The company announced today that they are merging servers in the US and Europe, not a good sign only a few month after the launch of their MMORPG.
The game Game Director explained the situation directly to players in the game's forum:
Another aspect which has popped up in the forums recently is whether we are going to do a server merge or not, and I can today confirm that we are actively working on an approach to merge servers, both in Europe and North America. It’s important for us to ensure the best gameplay experience for you all, and more healthy populations on each and every server will make sure we maintain healthy communities for the game in the future. Still, there are many complexities involved in this, and we want to ensure that everything happens as fair and streamlined as possible. That work has now started, and we are naturally making sure that guilds and players can get to new servers in the best possible way. We will come back with more info on this, but I hope that this will serve as a positive injection to the social scene in the game.
Let's hope the game starts picking up steam and adding those servers back: It could be an awesome game, and, judging from the rest of the post linked below, it seems like player feedback is taken seriously and some very cool tweaks are on the way.
