Lands of Hope Server Merge

This past week the Lands of Hope servers formerly known as Hellsgate and Trollsgrove have been merged together into one new server known as "Hope". The main reason for this merge is that the PvP enabled server Hellsgate did not have as big a population as is required to keep PvP fun and exciting for everyone on the server, this meant that newer players were put off from joining because it seemed like the established players would always pick on them which wasnt necessarily the case it was simply that those players had no one else to fight. The server merge has seen the redesign of several key systems including Stealing, PvP and Lockpicking this has meant that outside of PvP there is no other way to "grief" another player on this new server.

It should also be noted that PvP is now entirely optional a player can turn on PvP by simply typing /pvp into chat, such players can then turn off pvp by typing the same command although there is a 10minute timeout preventing you from turning it off immediately. You may only PvP another player if they have PvP turned on, in this way it prevents people from being killed when they have no interest in PvP at all.

This new PvP system also sees the introduction of a PvP themed story line, and a PvP faction and reward system with those people that PvP regularly being able to unlock new interesting rewards, we also have Death and Destruction days (every Tuesday and Saturday) where the experience and pvp fame gained from a kill is increased to encourage pvp action on those days.

We have been extremely pleased with the response from this change, everyone seems to be happy with the new system and the increased PvP action is has brought, it also seems to have brought a new sense of community to many of the players from the old Hellsgate server. What’s more the server merge was done without any loss of data, all players, buildings, pets, and associated data was successfully merged with no negative side effects.
