Post Zaken & Chronos Server Merge Guide

On Wednesday, August 23, 2017 during weekly maintenance Zaken will be merged with Chronos. With this date rapidly approaching we want to make sure players on both Servers are aware of how they'll be affected by the process. First, it's important to note that the plan with this Server Merge is to transfer Zaken characters and clans to Chronos directly, instead of resetting both Servers as has been done in the past. Players already on Chronos should therefore feel little impact beyond welcoming new players to their community.

Our goal is to ensure that this process is as smooth and pain-free as possible for everyone, but especially for those of you with characters currently on Zaken or Chronos.

Check out the full guide article to help you prepare for this merge, and feel free to use this thread to discuss the transition or raise any questions you might have.


Cheers,

The Lineage II Team

Only Zaken players gets a free change name? UNFAIR!
Reset all the names in chronos and give equal opportunity for everyone to pick their names

This.

It's very unfair for your zaken community to not allow them some way to get into Clan halls, because none go for sale hardly ever. I understand though now the idea is to get them to merge, and join pre-existing clans on Chronos.

Zaken players cried, spammed and so on here at forums for years.

Now what, they want people from Chronos to give their clan halls, castles etc. to Zaken players as a sign of good will and welcome?

Anything else? Maybe every player from Chronos need to mail 1b to a random Zaken player, eh?

If you do not like this merge rules you are always welcome to rot at Zaken!

Default Re: Zaken & Chronos Server Merge Guide

Thank you Conguero for the official merge guide.
Now I know exactly what's gonna happen. In order to preserve the names of my toons on Chronos, I was like to make Fresh LvL1 toons in Zaken on seperate accounts only to find out some of them were taken already! OMG! but now I know I don't need to panic no more.

The clan leader where my main characters are staying was worried that he may lose the clan hall due to the lack of Adena, so I was even thinking about making a donation for the clan hall...something like 20B?
I was gonna mail him the Adena but now I know I don't need to do that.

I'd like to extend my thanks to draecke. I think his post raised some serious questions about the merge information and urged you, Conguero to post the official merge guide at the home page.
Anyways, thanks again.

Cheers!

You dont understand your position...you dont own chronos server, it belong to NcSoft.Actually you dont own anything...not a single pixel .

Ppl are free to express their position...what they belive is right or not.

Nobody want or said about your CH, Castles are siegeble since I remember.
Ppl just want to play under the same name like I did from 2012...Why you think this is so bad to ask? Why you need my name?

The situation of the server Freya is pitiful. Zero fun, zero competition, all monopolized by a group. The same situation that led the server zaken to disappear.

ohh, but in zaken was competition...not the same with freya and naia.
If you take a look at hero monument you will understand. In freya and naia i see only 1 ally...in zaken never was like that.

Zaken died first coz ncsoft fault .....they do not adress bot ppl issue in time and do not advertise/marketing enough to bring more ppl, second due to bad gmt...Base ppl are gmt+1 or gmt+2....they cant denied
And baning entire contries due to losing teritories in favor of innova was the drop who fullfill the glass .

Now they force ppl join chronos or pay for transfer..and not event let us keep the name...GJ NcSoft, you are awesome(i have doubts americans know what sarcasm it is).

Name disputes can be appealed by contacting support in cases of name sniping by inactive characters. In general name disputes will be addressed by a combination of factors such as creation date, play time, and level.
Good to know.

Wink Re: Zaken & Chronos Server Merge Guide

I'm on a Fishing Expedition in Naia. The Fish are great over here, especially the fat ones here in Aden Castle Town waters. I am gaining more and more experience by the day. I am 105 now, so nothing more to gain. Now I am waiting for the Server Transfers to re-open on the 30th of August. I will be heading back to Chronos since I caught all the best Fish in Naia.

I got nearly ~80k Fishing Reward Boxes ... the big question is now ... what to do with them.

I will be re-united with some of my oldest friends in Chronos. Chronos was the original server I used to play long before Zaken opened. Gustin was my 1st and oldest server in my L2 history. I hope NCsoft will allow me to take back one of the oldest names of which most of the Players know me by. It's inactive on one of my oldest Accounts though .....

Thunder, Thunder, ThunderXL ... no I don't like Thunder Cats.

Random, merge that trash Freya server into Naia so MAX can start to die when they lose dragons.

I believe the how time past all servers will become one in 1-2 years... they merge all old 3 to freya... merge zaken to chronos, next step freya to naia and next naia and chronos to one ... remember this thread and visit in one year to see did this will not happen or be in plan

Default Re: Zaken & Chronos Server Merge Guide

This is the 2nd biggest insult to injury in the whole NCWest history lolz.
First was not perma banning the 3rd party software users and now the players of Zaken don't get proper merge....epic fail.

I do understand that Chronos is much bigger server than Zaken, BUT so it was Shilen compared to Bartz and Magmeld.
By not doing proper merge with reset to nicknames, CHs, Castles, Heroes, CoC etc, you'll be better off just deleting these ppl's characters.

Neutron should step to, very very seriously and provide equal chance for everybody, no player is any different than the rest to deserve a special treatment. This is pure double standard, which is a very very big No-No.
