    I've said it before and I'll say it again, as long as Gamigo only tells us about things AFTER they happen, they'll never be able to get on top of things. They will ALWAYS be behind.
    Not many people are bright, sorry to say.

    And about the first sentence: 'PLENTY OF TIME? Heck no. For you maybe. But for plenty of others this isn't 'plenty' of anything, but plenty of disrespect [again]. Don't pretend to speak on behalf of Gamigo OR on behalf of the playerbase, please.

    Oh really? And what does that tell us? With something that has the HUGE impact this will have, just tossing this out there and be incommunicado yet again, after what, after 8 months of letting us all hang out to dry - what does that tell us [ok, well everyone but HR12 then]

A key line to pick out from the above answer is:

    We can all hope that's genuinely true, but there's no guarantee that those will be the only "issues". We all want to know with absolute certainty that we won't (for those of us that have them) lose any of our characters and guilds that we put work into when mergers take place.
    Or are you working for them and have you just 'chosen not to tell us'.... or something.

    Nothing against you personally, but it really has to stop somewhere ....

    I'd have to start white knighting before I could actually stop being one, but I understand it's an easy phrase to throw around when you don't agree with someone.

    About as tiring as being called one. »\_(ツ)_/»

    Context matters, but I'll clarify just for you. Plenty of time to answer questions. It will obviously never be enough time for everyone to hop on their accounts and get their stuff organized in preparation for any mergers. I also pointed out (which you even quoted) that even then, there was still that much more time between December and now when they could've addressed those questions.

    I have never claimed or pretend to speak on behalf of of the entire playerbase, but I do have plenty of friends and people I know that share the same concerns. There's also a lot of people who I don't know that share those concerns. I don't think it's a difficult to understand when I say "we, others, people" in my posts that I don't mean literally everyone.

    Like I already pointed out, they left us out to dry since december. If they weren't going to address peoples concerns back then, they shouldn't have brought it up in the first place until they were more certain about it. In that regard we agree. I don't get special treatment like you seem to delusionally believe. I simply press the CMs and the couple of Devs that share their time on discord (when possible) when I want answers. I don't always get them, but I share them when I do.

    This always makes me smile. It's like me saying you work for another game company and frequently hop on here to talk about how bad the game is because it's your job to trash talk to the competition so people will go to the game made by said company you work for. I suppose both are technically within the realm of possibility, but you get the point.

    "Not personal", but you took the time to semi derail (which I'm also doing) the discussion and quote me to say how tired you are about your perception of me white knighting as well as countering my post in general which is fine if you and others want to, but don't pretend it's not personal right at the very end is all.

    Lets keep it on topic going forward.

    This does not bode well for people with lots of alts with the same name in different shards.

    While I feel bad for the EU players hopefully Gamigo does not go through with this on the NA shards.

    I am afraid that this will likely happen with a couple NA shards... Especially with Seastone and Hailol being fairly quiet, and to an extent Wolfsbane. Doubt Greybriar, Deepwood, and Faeblight are on the chopping block.

    While I agree that they should have had a FAQ or Q&A prepped and ready to go. However, at this point - it feels as if Rift is just a background-thought when it comes to details.

    Default additional new language servers for RIFT?

    in the early days of Gamigo's takeover --I remember a post from a dev that mentioned plans for adding more languages (and for each language a server ofc) to RIFT--I guess that plan has been shelved?

    Nope, just more languages:

    Something we’re thrilled to announce is that in the coming weeks we are going to implement German and French Customer Support and Community Management. You can contact all of us in English, of course, but we believe that giving you the possibility to express yourselves in your native language is always better. On the same note, we do not rule out adding additional languages down the road.

    You need to fix the 'return of a return' mail bug before the shard merges.

    When you send a mail to someone, and they return it to you and then you return it back, the mail then gets stuck in the final recipients mail box for 90 days.
    The items inside the mail are lost and you cannot delete the mail.

    These mails will prevent people from being able to transfer shard.

    Soooo... when are we going to get an update about whether hundreds to thousands of hours of time spent on characters is going to get binned by server merges making some of us go way over the character-per-shard limit?

    Not another damn penny.

    Question EU Live Shard merges

    I fear that the merger will cause a total mess, as now!
    And why are the EU servers always affected?
    We (EU servers) already have the most failures and buggies on the American server.
    That will surely mean that we can not play for at least two days!

    I'm not thrilled about it. Sorry I can not say anything positive. It is simple enough to server failures on the EU server.

    If Gamigo at least did something meaningful, like all things, clothes I can buy for brands and the Tenebrean Engine, etc. would make Sergerbound instead of soulbound!

    The answers to this will literally determine whether I just pack it in and walk away from the game right now or not, because I have put a mind boggling amout of hours and effort into my characters, and if that's going to be lost then what is even the point of continuing?
    Seriously,
    You can't make a post like that and then ask your player base for questions...There are LITERALLY thousands we can come with, both technically and game play wise. There must be a better way? My first question is why is there like 10 trial shards locked? Are they for the Asian market you are expecting? Are you trying to push NA and EU out? Cause your doing a good job!!!

    Those shards you can see has nothing to do with gamigo or the server merge, THOSE are the old shards that got merged years ago, where there is likely still a char on in case the owner comes back and wanna move the char, its still there.

    Try Easy mail addon ;-) When we had BETTER autumn event with artis in special zone. I've send and return and return on alts tooons of mails with arties (so I can get that 90 days and forget about it). With easy mail i deleted, tooked that items etc.

    By the way my char A send email to char B and char B did RETURN and char A got that returned mail and later char A moved to another shard, that returnd mail auto RETURNED to char B (got that few times)
