RIFT news » EU Shard Merge rescheduled for June 12th
The EU server merge that was scheduled for June 5th is being rescheduled for June 12th.
During the EU server merge an issue was encountered that prevented the merger process from completing. This issue has been resolved, but the merge process needed to be run again from the start, requiring the downtime to be extended by a significant amount of time. Due to the hour of the day and the need to patch on June 6th, we felt that it would be more beneficial for the community to postpone the merge until Wednesday June 12th.
This will reduce the expected downtime for EU servers on Thursday from 6 hours to 2 hours, and reduce the chance that the downtime would run into the event scheduled to run this weekend. Additionally, Thursday’s patch will include a new set of vouchers that can be used to transfer rare event currency between characters on an account.
Once again, we apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
