Trion announced this week that it would soon be “evolving” some of the ArcheAge servers.
“Evolving?” you may ask. “How does that differ from a merge?’ Unlike traditional server merges, these evolutions will move two separate servers to a new server. The downside is that players will lose their property in the process. If you do choose to evolve, then you’ll be refunded all the building kits evolved in your property, then you can just stake your claim once again. Evolved players will also receive a compensation package.
You can also choose to transfer, but that has its own set of downsides, and on top of that they won’t receive the compensation package.
You can read more about the transfers on the official site.
