Does this mean we'll be able to make new characters in Balmung/Gilgamesh again or is that still transfer/after maintenance only? I hope not, that's probably what's keeping the gil seller at bay. I don't think server capacity would go up as a result of this, so probably not, its more about reliability and a more central location for better response times. The old servers were in Ontario, Canada iirc, which isn't exactly close if you live in the south, the new servers should be more centrally located.
Unfortunately what they should do and what they actually do very seldom align. I hope all goes well and I can care less for any down time as long as they get it done right so please take your time and be patient ppl there are a lot of games out there to kill time with. TWO WHOLE DAYS. We will have to cruise about on GTAV instead. Blade & Soul Gold Small price to pay so they can bring in the improvements with stormblood. I dont mind losing sub time at all. Well... At least its in May and I have plenty of advance warning. Interesting read overall. Funny how it always NA complains. We never got any extensions when they added EU Data centre. Lmao it is Centre as well. Centre, center, organisation, organization, both are correct, what's your spelling like lmao!
Its nice and all to know the date, but after a few weeks since the initial announcement it would be nice, as an EU player on one of the NA datacenters, to know where the new location is. It doesn't have to be specific to the point it says the town it is in, but knowing if the relocation is West Coast, Central or East Coast at the very least should be the kind of information that we should been shared by now. Don't forget your paying customers who play from outside NA on NA because they have international connections with people they met for over a decade of playing games and that the current location was the best to serve all interests among those connections. I think it's currently here in Alhambra, CA. Curious to where it's moving and why.
