It's been a rough ride for players of Vanguard: Saga of Heroes
over the past few months, with the dreaded "maintenance letter
" back in December that left players uncertain about the game's future. That uncertainty wasn't helped when rumors began circling
that the game would be merging servers, followed by a confirmation of same
. As of now, the server merge is complete
, with the game's population all concentrated on a single server dubbed Telon.
The good news for players is that the merge, on a whole, went fairly smoothly
. There was a slight extension of the expected operation time, which is really normal when dealing with a large-scale operation. It should also help the game's players enjoy the game with a larger population to draw from. The bad news is... well, a server merge is never exactly a comforting fact for any game, and we can only hope that the long-term benefits for Vanguard
outweigh the negatives.
[Update: This does not affect the EU server which is set to merge at a later date. Thank you to everyone who tipped us on this!]
