  • [Merge] Dragon Pals Server Merges for 10/24 @ 3:00 PM GMT+8

    A server merge is scheduled for Thursday, the 24th of October, beginning at 3:00 PM GMT+8. These servers will be down for approximately 2 to 4 hours to allow for adequate testing but could be longer. Please watch this thread for any updates or changes.

    The following servers to be merged are:
    • S1-3-5-6-8-11-13-15-18-19-20-22-24-25-28-29-30-32-35-37-39-40-42-44-46-48-49-51-54-56-58-60-62-64-68-72-75-78-81-83-87-91-95-99-103-107-111-115-117-119-121-125-127-129-131-134-136-138and S140-142-144-146-147-149-151-153-155-157-159-161-162-164-167-168-170-171-172-173-174 and S176will be merged together.

    In order to avoid the loss of any character information, please refrain from making any new characters on these servers until after the merge has been completed.

    So the merger has happened, but not only has this thrown any balance this game had out the window, but Dragonian's Duel, Solo Showdown, and Tribal Clash are broken. I've heard that SS tends to go down for a few days after a merger, but shouldn't it have gone back up by now? Are there ANY plans to try and make these activities operational?

    And just some personal feedback on this whole fiasco: this merger took a LOT of people by surprise, and many players are still learning that this event has occurred. Maybe instead of posting such a HUGE announcement on a forum that's hardly used, maybe have the mentor(s) spread the word? Or put out a system announcement to play in the game every hour or so? or a message to each person in the game via the in-game email system? Heck, even something as simple as "server merger scheduled for Oct. 24, 2019, please check the forum for details," would have made the transition SO much smoother from a player's perspective.

      Merges always changes the game balance, specially when all servers are merged in a single one.
      We are still expecting a feedback about Solo Showdown, but Tribal Clash and Dragonian Duel shouldn't work anymore since they requires at least two servers to make the pairment.

      About the announcements: This time was much better than last merge at 2018, when it was totally unexpected and not even mentors were aware when that happened. Hardly used or not, the forums always were the main source for official information and the fact that people don't check it anymore don't justify the fact they weren't notified. The forum post was made one week before the merge happens and I highly recommend everyone to check if there are any news here once or twice per week. It won't take even one minute.

      As stated before we have not many mentors around and since they are volunteer we can't guarantee when they will be online and if they will be able to visit servers to tell players. We try but sometimes it's not possible.
