According to a report from IncGamers, there are no plans close any other EU Warhammer Online servers.
“GOA, European publisher of WAR, has no plans to scale back the WAR servers,” said a spokesperson. “There is an ongoing optimization process that deals with efficient distribution of players between the servers, which is designed to ensure all players get the best possible experience.”
Merging two low population servers into one works, because many quests in WAR require a high level of players to accomplish a task – like sacking a city.
On the flip side, the fate of low populated US server Ostermark is still up in the air at this time.

Speaking to VG247 this morning, Warhammer Online’s European publisher, GOA, has assured that all registration issues gamers are experiencing with the game’s open beta will be resolved before release on September 18.
“These issues will of course be completely fixed for the launch,” said a rep.
The firm also said that current problems with new users getting onto the open beta are being sorted now.
“We are currently handling the various issues we have and are hoping that they will be resolved ASAP,” the spokesperson added.
As you can see from the official site, almost 900,000 people have now registered for the beta.
Not long now.

Mythic boss Mark Jacobs has publicly blamed Warhammer Online’s European publisher, GOA, for registration errors at the opening of the Warhammer Online beta in Europe, saying the firm “messed up.”
“GOA messed up, they apologized and they are working hard to do better,” he said on his blog.
“This is a good start but not an excuse for them. Neither their CEO nor I am defending what happened yesterday. It was an ugly day.”
Jacobs said he understood frustration at the errors – which meant that new players weren’t able to register for the open beta – but called for calm after things got heated in the snafu’s wake.
“I think that the players have every right to be angry, disappointed and frustrated,” he added.
“I agree with them 100% but what I do not agree with is the level of threats and abuse that followed. I know why some players feel that way but my not agreeing with their reactions does not mean that I’m excusing GOA, clear?”
