Amazon’s had a rough start to 2019, with Tuesday causing outages for some Prime members. The company has attributed the problems to their AWS infrastructure update, which is set to happen later this week.
The New World merges that were supposed to happen this week have been postponed, and they’ll be followed by even more mergers, which should thrill the present playerbase.
The Mardi-to-Brittia merger was supposed to happen today, but Amazon’s services were down yesterday, affecting everything from video games and websites to my Fresh groceries, and now I’m hungry. In addition to yesterday’s server disruption, the studio has delayed the server merging to Thursday and added a merge for a Central European and South American set.
“Due to an Amazon service problem, we will have to postpone our initial merging till Thursday AM” (PST). The Community Managers will publish something about this if they haven’t already. It’s been a crazy day, and I apologize to anyone who didn’t get to play or who had other obligations today. We’re also continuing forward with two complete or nearly full set merges (this is merging inside a set, not across) on Friday, barring anything that would cause us to halt after the Thursday merge. The two sets receiving merges on Friday, as far as I’m aware, are Vanaheim Terra and Nibiru Mu.”
