MegaServers are on there way to DC Universe Online this Monday allowing for much larger player populations. The new MegaServers will combine the current servers allowing for more players in cites, combat area, alerts, raid zones and pretty much everywhere else.
Aside from the obvious increase in player populations, the new servers will be arranged in “Phases”, with each server having a minimum of one PvE and PvP Phases. However there could be multiple Phases on each server which leads to a scenario where friends or guildmates are on different Phases. Thankfully there is a simple solution for players who can just select the Phase they want to be on.
Name changes will be required for some as some players might have the same name as someone else. Those players who’s names are changed will receive a free name change token so they can update it to something else if they don’t like the new name they got. This goes the same for clan or League names.
Server will go down for the mergers for about 10-14 hrs with the schedule posted below.
- EU PC 8/8/2011 8:00AM PT/4:00PM CET
- US PC 8/10/2011 8:00AM PT/4:00PM CET
- US PS3 8/11/2011 8:00AM PT/4:00PM CET
- EU PS3 8/15/2011 8:00AM PT/4:00PM CET
This will consolidate all servers into just 4 MegaServers. I wish every MMO did this.
