Warhammer Online servers closing, transfers offered

Tuesday, 8th February 2011 05:42 GMT By Brenna Hillier

EA is tightening Warhammer Online’s plus-one-against-ogres belt, with one European and two North American servers facing shutdown.

Free transfers to existing servers are being offered to current players, according to an announcement on the Warhammer Online website, with the closures described as designed to “enable players to experience more action during all hours”.

On the US side, Iron Rock and Volkmar dwellers will both be eligible for transfer to Gorfang, which will have multi-realm switched on, allowing Order and Chaos players simultaneously.

The German server Carroburg will be folded into Drakenwald, likewise made multi-realm.

Transfers become available on February 9, when Iron Rock, Volkmar and Carroburg will become legacy servers, disallowing new sign ups. After three weeks, all three will be disabled.

Thanks, Massively.

    How long will it take to ban this troll?

    BTW, what a shame, WAR is a damn good game… but it’s actually dead.

    I’m sad :(

    The MMOrpg space is just too crowded on PC.

    If done correctly a few of these “dying” games could work and thrive on a console. They would have to drop to a 5-10usd monthly subscript plan, maybe even go f2p(w/microtransactions). And the controls would need to be tweaked. But a PVP based experience like warhammer would feel right at home on PSN/LIVE.

    Too bad console platforms/gamers are so MMORPG phobic. And so affraid of subscriptions.
