Megaservers Question

Ok,

I have read that there are two Megaservers, one for the US and one for Europe. These individual Megaservers allow for both PC and Mac users to co-exist in the same space. Each PC/Mac user will have the option to choose which server they want to use.

Firstly, is this accurate and correct? Can anybody verify this?

If correct then my question is this, "When someone creates a new character, is that character available for use on either Megaserver or is it limited to the server on which it was created? i.e The character is non-transferable between the US and European Megaservers."

The reason behind this question is simple, I have a variety of online friends who are scattered throughout the world, therefore I'd like to make an informed decision about which Megaserver I should begin in, as this will isolate a segment of my online buddies.

I'm sure i'm not the only person who is currently in this predicament! (Only if the theory above is valid)

Not sure if you will be able to join either server.

I do know you can't use one character on both servers. The character is limited to one server.

Whether there will be a migration setup later in the year I don't know, it's possible, probably for a fee. If it happens, it will be in the future, as of now they have said the character you create is only available on the server you create it on.

Edited.

Just done a bit more research and yes, you will be able to choose either the NA or EU server no matter where you live in the world.

So as you've just said, you might be living in North America but all your friends play on the EU server, you can join the EU server. The only thing you can't do is bring your NA server character over to the EU server. Not at the moment anyway.

Yes and No, if you both choose to play using the US server then you both use the US server. Same goes for the European server. However, like Estenil explained above, you CAN NOT migrate characters between the US and EU servers. You'll need to to create a NEW character if and when you change servers.

I'm going to speak with my online buddies and find what their preferences are, as for the beta test it's not too important but when the game officially launches then this will be a key decision for many.

I'm in Europe, I haven't joined a clan/guild yet and neither have any of my online buddies. When the official launch comes around, I don't want to jump in and be overrun all the time by groups. Therefore finding out who, of my online buddies, is on which server, what their alliances are and what their in-game intentions are will be important. It sounds a lot more complicated than it really is.

My hope is to have at least 6-8 reliable counter-parts, in order to assist each other in completing various tasks and battles.

Good Luck.

Thanks for the detail! I'm in an EU guild so I need to be sure to pick the correct one as I live (somewhat) close to NA.

Will have to give the heads up to any other NA players that are friends.

Cheers :)

They separated the regions due to possible lag in Cyrodiil, PvP can be harsh if you have high latency to the server.

my concern about the megaserver is what will htat mean for RPers? will we have sanctuary or will we need to turn on our blinders to griefers all the time?

You should be able to set your filters to avoid most, of not all, of the griefers. I'm not sure as of right now what doing so will entail, but zenimax has promised that we will only share our game world with people we would want to share it with.

Sorry to say, but all I've heard about is two servers. Maybe this will be the exception!

I LOVE to be able this answer this question with a resounding YES, but it's not going to happen anytime soon. It's a shame that they don't market the game better towards the Asian region. They're missing out on a heck of a lot cash, considering that China and India make up for a least a THIRD (33%) of the world's population. You'd think for that reason alone they'd introduce a an individual Megaserver and support system just for that region. The benefits far out way the costs!

Maybe one day....
