Important update for those of you on “World servers”. Evony is merging these older servers together in a campaign called “Call of the Warlord”. They call these WN1 WN2 and WN3. If you see any threads on the forums with those names in them they are about the world merges.
Old servers W1 – W5 have already been merged.
Servers W6 – W11 are being merged now.
Servers W12 – W17 are next to be merged.
Apparently a lot of things happen. You loose your valleys. Your cities are transported to random locations within the region and your alliances disappear and have to be reformed. IN exchange you’ll get a more active server with a lot of top players. You’ll also get 50 evony cents to help get you started.
I suggest anyone who is on one of these servers spend some time reading the game forums to get more information on this.
Here are some tips from another player that has already been through a World Merge.
the merge of W1-W5 was a bumpy ride for sure…. but now you should see the activity level on the server! WOW!
here is what I would do if I knew that I was going to be forced through another merge
-stockpile a week of food in each city – no exceptions
-create and rank up some accounts on the other servers for the free coins
-find a way to keep in touch with alliance members during and right after the merge and regroup faster (skype, messenger etc.)
-build some twig cities to claim as many adv teleports as possible – npc any you don’t want after the merge
-collect any real life email addys of people you want to keep in touch with… many people will quit over the stress of the move
-do not log in on the first day of new server – let everyone else discover any bugs first without risking your account
-sit back and enjoy watching all the people totally freaking out over the merge (I hated the idea of the merge at first but now the new server and diplomatic dynamics have grown on me)
-be patient if there are any issues with your account transfer, Evony will get to most of them eventually
Good luck everyone! Hang in there, it will only hurt for a little while
