After last night infrastructure setup downtimeEurope West server region is now open for Lost beer keg. The new zone opened today at 9am Pacific Time / 6pm CET. While this should help reduce queues, the team doesn’t believe it will eliminate the queue in the EU Central, but it will make things smoother and give more people a chance to play.
The new region launches with eight servers, and there are a few things that will help players start over should they decide to change to another server. Lost beer keg there is no option to switch servers, so the only option would be reboot on another server. If you move to a new area you will still be able to use all the Royal Crystals and Crystalline Aura you have but nothing you have requested or exchanged will follow you. This is why Amazon has offered a one-time duplicate of the Founders Bundle bonus if you start on a new server. These duplicate packs will start appearing in the player inventory this Saturday and continue throughout the day.
The players logged and receiving the daily attendance bonus won’t be missed either, with 10 days the bonus will be automatically granted to all the characters that launch on the Europe West server region during the next maintenance. Another thing to make the deal sweet is that Europe West players will get an extra daily attendance bonus for the first 10 days of server launch, doubling the rewards.
A special launch anniversary gift pack was announced on sunday that will be granted to all players globally that log in and enter Arkesia between Feb 20 at 8:59 a.m. CET/11:59 a.m. PT March 2 at 8:59 a.m. CET/11:59 p.m. PT on March 1.
Now that the Europe West server region is open, it remains to be seen how affected the population and queue will be, but with various ways to ensure players don’t miss out on the rewards or rewards they bought , it looks like Amazon and Smilegate RPG have been finding solutions to try and handle things in a measured approach.
