New servers to support new content like Ragnarok, yeah, but there aren't any plans to create a new PvE cluster (for now - again not set in stone) like what we're doing for PvP

There is really no need to create new PvE cluster. PvE players new and old don't mind playing together and we don't raid one another.

PvP on the other hand.. the change was needed and decision to create a completely new cluster is good for new players imho. But it's nice that old players can continue to play without losing their stuff.

The new PVE servers will be available on August 8th?

@Jat I think you missed one important thing in your newsletter here, nowhere do you mention PVE servers in this. Will they become legacy servers too or will they just get new servers and all be connected to each other?

Edit: NVM just seen the response from before.

Is Nitrado going to be a paid service? I assume so, just wanted to ask since i'm psyched to learn more details on that for my server! Good update!

Yes you'll pay a monthly fee for the servers based on how many slots you pick.

NO NEW PVE CLUSTER? ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND??

I just want to get a fresh start on PVE away from the cheaters, man.. What the hell is wrong with you guys..

 

So your new players have to play PVE with TONS of people who cheated.. That's great Jat. Just great.. Not.

 

Our decision hasn't been set in stone regarding a new PvE cluster, it's a possibility, but for now the team feels it isn't necessary.

Is it possible in the far future that the new servers (once established with people and such) will allow cross transfers to and from the Legacy servers? Much like how Scorched Earth was for a time isolated. Also from the PvE aspect I saw no note of new servers. Will that game mode not receive any new ones?

Is there no option to host locally? Or its just not advertised as much right now for more official partnership reasons?

That may be because you usually do not trade with people you do not know on PVP. Noone will trade high end items/dinos with people that can potentially use em against you.

so ya. No wonder 99% of the trade forum is PvE

Why do you think that it isn't necessary? The economy is screwed. You used to be able to trade people items, but now everything is worthless. Please don't favor PVP over PVE like this.. That's not fair guys..

From the sounds of it, it's going to be paid servers. If you want a free server buy another PS4 with a subscription and host a server there. But then it's not really free if your paying to host a server on another PS4.

Do not think that this would make sense. Legacy players will always be two years ahead of the new servers, no matter how long you wait. It would neber be fair towards the onces playing on the new servers.

That's maybe why they are so many dupers on PvP, more than PvE.
