A few days ago, this went up on the HZ frontpage:
http://community.istaria.com/pg.php/unity_transfer

While this is not the final item, clearly we're getting close to be able to finally transfer our characters over. So, who's going to do it, and where will you go? Personally I'm going to Chaos, and have already established myself there.

I'm undecided yet and would love to hear more comments.

Chaos makes more sense to me due to proper population, but there are more plots and stuff on Order.

Plot reclamations are to start shortly after the transfers - that's why the reclamations haven't been started since VI took over. There will be plots enough for everyone on both shards, and since we get tokens there's a decent chance you'll be able to get Tavu back, if you so desire.

Chaos does, indeed, have more people. Around 100 during the evenings, as opposed to Order's 40. Of course, this also leads to a bit more friction between elements on the server, but that's just to expect. Order, on the other hand, can be a bit finicky due to RP. Sometimes it's hard to know when someone means something, or when they're just roleplaying.

So guess a few days before the reclamation is the actual deadline to make up our minds.

Now if I just would remember which char owned my plot.

Tramsan: Could you login to Chaos and tell me the plot value of the Tavu Masterplot?

The 1s Subplots will suck badly at auctions, but at least Monkee still has Parsinia and Soresha her Lair. Meta and Me will have to get lucky.

The above linked page has been updated with final details, and submissions are now officially being accepted. (They were before, too, just not officially.) A new announcement on the forum says amongst other things "as early as next week - if not sooner."

http://community.istaria.com/forum/showthread.php?t=18076


It turns out we won't get either plot tokens nor novians, after all. Plot tokens I can understand, but no novians really tickles my angry bone. Well, I'll be on Chaos if you need me.


Ps, Arcat, on Blight the Tavy master plot is 9g720s, but since it's owned it might be changed. Looks like a legit number, though. I checked the owners on Chaos, and I can't say I remember seeing any of them. It's quite possible Tavu will be reclaimed, but we will probably not be able to compete for it. You'll probably be able to get a decent sized plot somewhere else, though, without a T5 guildhall taking up all the space. smile.gif

I gave it a second and third thought.... but I won't create a NA subscription. And therefore I will not reactivate nor transfer metagruen.
Been rather happy atm with WoW again. Somehow I resubbed that recently.
I don't know what would be left as goals for me in HZ.
But I wish you all a smooth transfer and happy grinding smile.gif)

First some useful info:

Link to details of subscriptions

Regarding plots/lairs: No tokens means competing in the auctions after the plot reclamations. That doesn't bode well for winning a pretty lair like mine, since the current players have had a long time to save up money for it. Rough estimate from trams is that plot reclamations and auctions will be 1 or 2 months after the unity transfers.

Guild listings from some old screenies dated August 2006, might help with remembering the character names:

Now for my thoughts/plans...

I'd vote for Chaos myself. I'm actually holding a lair on both shards on inactive accounts, and the Order lair is nicer, but... I don't think I can manage the roleplay on Order. I played there a little bit in the past and struggled with it. So realistically it should be Chaos for me. (Unless everyone else wants to go to Order, and you don't make me talk in roleplay language to you!)

Once we've made a decision on the shard, I'll reactivate the account holding that shard's lair and get my characters transferred. I suspect I'll just be flying around occasionally, maybe we can arrange some occasional evenings hunting together, but I'll be waiting for the auctions.

Once the auctions arrive, I'll up the subs so I can hold the current lair in reserve and the bid on my old lair and maybe a few other nice ones, we'll see what happens. After that I can see me logging in to fly around and do some occasional lair building. I might get a plot as well, since you need 2 accounts to run 2 PCs at once anyway.

There's no chance of me returning to being a full time player at this time, I'll just be "occasional". I love my dragoness, but I have loads of content to do in Vanguard (plus the modding!) and nothing left I'm keen to do in HZs except fly around, dig resources and build a lair back up. Though that may take quite a while, even with flying cargo disks and lairs being easier to build now. wink.gif

@Arcat: I would say the forms/techs mules are more valuable than the spare equipment.

Well so far that's Chaos:4 Order:0 then. (Arcat, trams and I talked about it on IRC at the weekend). However like you, Arcat and myself are also waiting for more people to speak up before sending in the transfer requests. Someone might have a really good reason for avoiding Chaos and going to Order?

Sor

PS: I've started obsessing about my lair again, whether I can win it back, whether I could find another spot I could build the same lair plans into... arghhh!!!

New info:

"A question was raise in game this weekend while I was playing regarding what it means to have a subscription.

Please note that a "trial subscription" is not what we mean. We will not transfer characters if all you have on your account is the two-week trial. You must have at least a monthly renewable subscription in order to have characters transfered."


Also, someone poke the people in VG. tongue.gif

Well, if it would be as at end of 2006 I'd have prefered to go for Order, but now...well I allways refused to go for 2 mmorpg at same time - and don't think I'll change this. And hey the monthly fee is still pretty tough for peeking in once a week for waving around. So as there will be no tranfer for me now, you don't have to mind my old preferences - not sure if it would still be the same with the current player count. So Joaqim, Beleenda, Meleenda and Dinax just continue sleeping for now wink.gif

Hi Joa,

Thanks for letting us know your decision. In 2006 I'd also have preferred Order, but the population count is something I think I'll like.
Maurice said earlier to Sor that he's not importing his character as well.


This means for me personally green lights for Chaos - unless someone wants to throw in his/her Veto smile.gif


Update: I'll be importing ALL guildmules and drop 4 of them after the first month.
That should be more than enough time to trade contents of the mules to another member.

best,
Arcat
