    I believe the confusion is that there was no clearly stated time. Just the day, which is the 22nd. Does that mean the cross-platform merge starts at midnight, 00:00 of the 22nd at gmt+8, or is there a different timeframe when it's expected to start?

    Not to be rude, but "R2Games will have a cross-platform server merge on 22nd November (GMT+8)" tells me nothing.

    Honestly, just be glad they at least made a platform merge. Might not been able to merge at all and your progress would be for nothing. Yeah they didn't really think it through but at least there was still a chance for this to happen.
    In some cases, the progress was for nothing. Some people work or cant get on all the time. So... Yeah. Some of these people ive been playing with since March 2012, and now theyre getting deleted.

So a lot of my friends who are NOW active have to accept that there account which took them almost 5 years is going to be deleted. What the **** is wrong with you R2? Do you not realise that people put thousands of hours and thousands of pounds/dollars, w/e into your game only for you to return the favor by deleting their toons? Was it so hard to give a months notice before hand? i mean, youre already screwing us by completely changing the timezone aswell.

    This'll be the last post I make on here arguing for any sort of assistance. I've sent a couple tickets in regards to my own toon as well as one ticket with the message below.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Hello, I'm sending this e-mail in regards to the Crystal Saga server merge of Kongregate, Armorgames, and Newgrounds.

    On November 9th it was announced that Armorgames, Kongregate, and Newgrounds would be shutting down all of the Crystal Saga Servers on the 22nd, and that players had to create accounts on r2games.com and send support tickets to transfer characters. According to this announcement this had to be done by the 18th.

    This deadline needs to be extended in some way. There have been several instances of player being unable to meet the deadline for various reasons. There was a lack of information for many people as some had to wait to find out their tickets needed resending as well some being unable to meet the deadline due to inactivity.

    Players only had roughly 7 days due to the information being due by the 18th of November, some mistook this as the final day, though it was stated info had to be collected by this date. The server announcements were far and in-between. Quotes from player’s state that the Server Announcements came all at once just once warning of the server closing on Kongregate around 24 hours before hand.

    Also Armorgames gave an even later announcement, screenshotted below at the time of this e-mail. With that timeframe almost nobody could have transferred their account unless they found out through some other means.

    Newgrounds had no such announcement in a forum or comment. Their only announcement was word of mouth and maybe a server update in World Chat should they happen to be online.

    There were no e-mails sent by R2, Kongregate, Armorgames, or Newgrounds, and no in game notification. And this all happened in a very sudden and short amount of time.

    It seems like a shame that some players have to lose YEARS of their work on characters due to something as simple as a server transfer that seems so sudden and over-complicated for what it is. Character such as the ones down below.

    I beg, and urge you to please reconsider, the deadline for these characters especially given the above issues.

    Thank you
    - A Devoted Crystal Saga player.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I do hope you all consider the points above and please help us in this if you can. I know you moderators can get through better than we can to the actual r2 staff, so that is why I felt sharing this here as well.

    I have screenshots but unfortunately I can't figure out how to post them, I'll update this post once I find a way to place them in this post without breaking the forums.

    The devs will be asked about the tickets that were sent in a little late. I would still send in a ticket now if you haven't already done so. It doesn't hurt to ask. But if they are able to squeeze in the last few late comers, today would be the absolute last day, and there's no guarantee they will be able to work in the ones who are late.
    Thank you so much for all your patience. We appreciate your help and know you're doing your best. We're just trying to get answers and are extremely frustrated because many of our friends who have worked on their characters for upwards of five years on these characters and they're likely to be deleted because of the lack of communication on R2's part on the host servers.

    Any suggestions for the people who were unable to submit a ticket before the deadline? We had one person who missed the deadline by only 3 minutes...
    Others I have heard submit tickets on time but never received a response. This merge process was hasty, many active players risk being lost in the shuffle.

    I would have loved to have been able to visit every server to make sure everyone knew about it, but I didn't have the time to create that many characters. The one server I did visit for a few minutes had a red announcement pop up in chat telling people the servers were shutting down and to visit the forum. I could only assume the same announcement went out to all of the servers shutting down.

    Personally I find it inconvenient as there were no e-mails sent, just this announcement on the forum that some don't check and a small announcement on the little forum on Kong that I (and maybe others) don't read.

    I also find it strange that the deadline was only 9 days. Though some say they were denied when they applied on the 18th so the deadline might have only been 8 days if it was apply before the 18th. (Which isn't much better.) It seems awfully short considering something so serious.
    I agree. It's not fair to players who have spent thousands of dollars on this game only to be a day, maybe only an a few minutes, late to transfer their character. I only found out about the transfer, because luckily someone on our server reads the forums.
    It would have been nice to have had a moderator come on to the server and make an announcement at regular intervals through the submission period.
