Blade & Soul: The Future of The Earthen Realm & Servers Consolidating
Jonathan Lien talked about Blade & Soul past, and how it went from the launch till now with the various events and updates.
He mentioned that they have had several pain points they have needed to correct or are still working on, beside mentioning that the BnS team priority is to ensure that they make the best decisions that contribute to its longevity.
Which means the feedback from the community is important to improve the community overall experience.
The letter included an announcement of the new Fortune Falls update.
Immediately ahead of us is the new Fortune Falls update—you’ll be able to explore a new event dungeon, where you can snag an awesome swimsuit set and valuable upgrade materials for a limited time! And on the horizon, you’ll be able to explore a new major update named Dark Origins. It’s got two brand new high level raids, a continuation of our story quests, a new dungeon, systems updates, and LOADS of new gear and cosmetics. Dark Origins will be hitting in August, so make sure you’re ready.Also there will be a server merge/consolidating on August 9, due to difficulty in finding raiding groups.
To help all players have the ability to experience the new raids, we are consolidating servers on August 9. This will affect both North American and European servers—the end result being that all players will be transferred to two realms for North America (Yura and Zulia) and three for Europe (Jinsoyun, Eisenherz, and Naksun). We’ll have more details in the next few days, but to prepare for this, we’ll be disabling server transfers after the July 26 maintenance.For more info you can read the letter "here".
