(i seriously can't believe ANOTHER expansion is on the way for WoW)
The original Everquest has 14 expansions and counting. As long as people keep buying them, there's no reason to stop. Starcraft 2 is actually quite fun. Friends at Blizzard got me a beta copy.
Everquest is still active? I thought it died years ago. lol and i so hate you for the beta copy :(

Hell yeah EQ is still active... it's teh bomb

If you want to go back even farther, Ultima Online is still soldiering on after all these years, predating EQ by about a year and a half.

There's a reason that most MMO and game companies say "when it's done." Because that's how these things work, and whining for a set date won't get you anything. Hell, Blizzard has a "when it's done" policy that's so famous, Diablo 3 and Starcraft 2 have been in that state for going on several years now.
Reminds me of another game that had a "when it's done" policy, Duke Nukem Forever! LOL!

Character Creation Suspended on Multiple Worlds

As part of preparation for the World Merge, the following services have been suspended on 16 worlds that are designated as Source Worlds and Destination Worlds. These services are scheduled to be reinstated upon the completion of the World Merge.

[Affected Services]
- Creating new characters on designated worlds
- Issuing Gold World Pass on designated worlds

[Affected Worlds]
Sylph/Valefor/Leviathan/Quetzalcoatl/Pandemonium
Garuda/Cerberus/Kujata/Bismarck/Seraph/Lakshmi
Asura/Midgardsormr/Fairy/Remora/Hades

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

My guess is this coming Monday or Tuesday. March 15th or 16th, respectively.

Only GM Dave knows the truth.. http://bannable-offenses.blogspot.com/

Too many guessing and hear-say.. None of you know anything and are just playing the "I heard" "I think" game.

When is it gonna happen? Wait and see. It will be in the /servermes and on POL and FFXI homepage when it is to be announced. I mean honestly, people need time to empty D box and AH items. Sit back, smoke a bowl and relax until the big announcement.

Actually disregard my previous. They're going to announce this week that the merger is going to happen the following Monday or Tuesday (22 or 23rd). Being that things in your Auction House and Delivery Box will be destroyed and cannot be recovered they need to give plenty of notice.

I guess some don't like the idea of merger, we here at Ifrit are seeing a lot of new faces.

This is Correct, if read properly it clearly states the Merger will not happen until the maintenance for the quarterly version update which a date is still TBA so once we get the date for the update all ur AH and DB items are safe =D

(p.s. Welcome to all Remora players in advance)

JP PoL says it's the 23rd. In all honesty, why does the exact date matter?

Because some of us that are merging don't want to lose our items in the AH we would be selling without some kind of notice. That could be a good reason.

True. But if the rumor was the 9th, why wouldn't you have prepared for the earliest date?

Need a link, or a screenshot. It's not proof or the truth until you show it.

Besides, according to everyone the merge happened on the 9th, the 10th, Mondays, the 15th, tomorrow, and the 23rd. Welcome to your new server.

No link, a JP member said POL says it was the 23rd. You should just prepare now, you know how SE is, they'll probably merge the moment something expensive off AH sells <_<

I think SE could care less about what sells on the AH.

Twas said that the merger will happen the same time as the update. The update is supposed to happen before the 24th so logically the update and server merger will be next Monday 3/22/2010!

yes this as been confermed and the reason the JP pol message says the 23 and not the 22 is because they are techicly 1 day ahead of us, so the 23 for them is the 22 for us. Thus the confusion with the post about the JP POL message.
