In our last post, we talked about how we plan to make your APB experience run more smoothly by upgrading the district server hardware to the latest generation technology. Today we'll share our plans to address your calls for server merges, how that fits with the console release, and what you can expect during this process.  Click here to read the full blog post.

Let's name the servers with car's name, like EU: Jericho and US: Vegas :P

Anyway nice blogpost but was better if you make a detailed post the same day you announced the server merge.

So we can expect in one month (22 April) a full implementation of SoftLayer with the merge i guess.

This is the first time G1 make something good and requested by the community. For this time i'll say...GJ G1.

 

Also ETA on Engine Overhaul?

 

PS: Tiggs, pin this topic and unpin the unecessary ones

Wow, Zanyy was right, they are giving out free name changes for those who are proved "unworthy of G1 standards".


Its funny too because they've never quite replaced me. They just keep recycling my work 8)

APB Reloaded, the only game where the US is better than EU at being criminals.

Finally some information.
Keep us informed please.

I like for EU server to be called Jericho like KitttyMosh said. 
I would also see Agrotech or Broadwing working well. 

Edit : Gonna copy Kemp from down below, these seem the best :

US : Somatic
EU : Agrotech

And again u proof u know mommy about ur game !!!!Patriot (EU1), Obeya (EU2)!!!!

Basically this. Get your butts together and fix your "typo".

 

As for the rest of it... looks pretty good. I'll love to see how it will turn out.

 

As for names.. I'd love Nulander for the EU one. Praise the Pioneers!

I don't really see why would you want to move the US server to a central location to eliminate every possible non-American player ... I mean the US servers are struggling to keep going as it is, with aussies+some europeons, I don't see how could they sustain without those extra hundreds of people.

 

I honestly hope it's not going to be an another shot in your own foot :/

My suggestion for the new EU World is Agrotech because it's my favorite gun manufacturer in the game. =D

Agrotech for HAN
Somatic for EU

Colby/Joker can be renamed to Patriot because 'Murica.

Also, I hope you will implement character transfers because all those Aussies who play your game have characters on Colby and now that the server is even further away they won't be able to play with their character in an enjoyable way.

I secretly wish for Nekrova for the EU server names. (Nekrova, specially because i keep pronouncing it "NEKO"-nova )
 
Agrotech for Asia/Aussie Bros and .....
 
...

Colby/Joker can be renamed to Patriot because 'Murica.

^ Yep. x)

As always Tiggs, amazing news.

I am really looking forward of this, lets hope APB population keeps growing so we will finally have one of the largest communities online.

Long live APB reloaded.

Texas, really? 

Edit: Also it mentions character age in the name changing section. Character age should be the determinant factor in this as long as the player is active

Even though Jericho is part of the Patriot manufacturer, it would make a cool server name. Somatic and Stabba are ..meh...

 

US: Jericho

EU: Agrotech

Asia/aus: (no idea)

 

 

it would be nice to have a name swap with the russian apb. Lets offer them "Nekrova" and take "Pioneer" back lol

LOL scrolled right to the bit about character naming.

So let's say a hacker (banned) shared the same name as your character. I am going to assume you get priority hands down? (of course this assumes you keep hold of banned characters)
