So last week it was announced that GOA would be handing over the EU reigns to Mythic. In a statement posted on the herald the following could be found:
BioWare Mythic is pleased to announce that we will assume operational responsibility for Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning European players beginning 7 July 2010.
On Tuesday, 29 June 2010 Mythic will be taking a data stamp of all European account, character and guild information from GOA, for both present and past players. Once this has occurred, all player and guild progression will not be saved for a period of a few days. Please note: While we do not anticipate any issues, please be aware that at any point during this transitional period that we may need to restore character and guild data from the 29 June 2010 data stamp.
When the process has completed, the European Mythic servers will be brought online and will be continually monitored during this transitional period. All game play during this period will be free for existing subscribers and current European subscribers will receive two weeks of free game play beginning 7th July.
See you on the battlefields!
I hope that this transition goes well for the EU community. I’m sure that many will be happy to finally have direct access to Mythic, and to feel like they are more of a driving force behind the game. Anyway to our EU brethren, good luck with the transition!
Note: The new servers will be hosted in Germany.
