Heroes of Arkesia,
Later this summer we plan to conduct a region merge to fold Europe West into Europe Central. We know players have been requesting region merges, and our teams at Amazon Games and Smilegate RPG are currently building the components to make this happen.
At this time, we don’t have any other region merges planned. While we have seen feedback that some players in South America would like us to consider a merge, merging South America into North America could create a suboptimal player experience due to increased latency. However, we will continue to monitor and look for ways to improve the player experience.
As we move toward the region merge our team is working to identify the full policy, similar to the plan we released during the last round of server merges. We’ll make sure to keep you updated and share the plan as soon as it’s finalized.
Similarly, we know that players on some lower population servers have been inquiring about server merges. After the August region merge, we will begin identifying servers in need of a merge. Stay tuned for information on region and server merges here, on playlostark.com. In the meantime, we’ll see you in Arkesia.
