    Exclamation Note for Switching Between Europe and North America Regions after EU Patch

    Hi all,

    Please note that after the Europe game updates, if you were previously playing on a Europe region shard and attempt to change your region to North America, the patcher will prompt you for a full re-download due to the versions not matching.

    You DO NOT NEED to redownload. Once the North America region is updated tomorrow, you will be able to switch back and forth again at will.

    We'll be looking into making these split updates more seamless for multi-region players.

    That's brilliant.

    Trion's step towards no IP blocks and permitting this sets a new standard for publishing games, worldwide.

    For whatever reason, even though I'm playing on a NA server, the autopatcher this morning patched me (I guess) to a European version. No now I can either wait until "tomorrow" to play, or re-download the entire game client yet again.

    My personal experience with this game launch has been really unsatisfying.

    LoL you really are in love with this game aren't ya? Many games have been doing this already, most notably Everquest II.

    Default Switching

    Well, I was previously playing on a NA Server, then switched last night to an EU one so my hubby and I could play on a German server (he's a native).

    So what if I can't switch back until the NA servers are patched. It's fun to be able to play either one at will and I'm really enjoying my Rifting. Thanks again Trion!

    Why we can have multi regions at first place? Ofcourse is nice to log on to US and say "hi" to someone who just showed you some tricks to be a hero in PvP, but playin in the other continent - suicide...

    Ooh, this is cool. I'm EU but my sleeping pattern is more US so this gives me a lot more options to PvP ^^
