The RIFT platform team has been working hard to improve our serversí performance we have recently released a change that will drastically increase the maximum capacity of our game servers . That means that our servers will support more players at the same time than before.
This technology change allows us to pool all European servers together. All European players will therefore join the same Dungeons and Warfront queues, as well as participate in the same Conquest battles coming with the 1.9 update. This will result in a noticeable reduction in queuing times and will allow you to jump into the action more quickly.
In order to adapt the current structure with these latest improvements, the new EU-English pool shards will be:
- Argent (PvE RP)
- Blightweald (PvE)
- Bloodiron (PvP)
- Icewatch (PvE)
Riptalon, Sagespire, and Steampike will then become trial-only shards; characters will still be accessible at any time, and you will be able to relocate to another shard in a few minutes thanks to the free transfer tool.
The sub-forums belonging to those trial-only shards will be put into archive mode; rest assured, no messages will be deleted.
With the huge increase of the server capacity, we should be ready for the impact of Storm Legion and all of your friends and guildmates.
If you have any questions about how to transfer your guild or your character, you can find more information at in our support portal at https://support.trionworlds.com/app/...13/kw/transfer (sub correct link as appropriate). The plat and level restrictions on transferring characters will be removed to allow you to transfer quickly.
