Migration has started! 6% of players are being sent over… this is going to be a little slower than PC, as players need to restart the game in order to move over, and restarts happen less frequently on consoles, due to the nice way they leave a game in a “suspended” state.

The migration should now be complete. As all players start their games they will now be taken to the new servers.

We discovered on PC/Mobile that - due to the relocation of the servers - some players who were logging in fine before now had some problems, while others with prior problems were now logging in fine!
In most cases on PC/Mobile that seemed to resolve itself over the next 24 hours.

If you continue to experience issues from Jan 24th 11am GMT onwards, either add to the forum post Console Server Migration or contact our support team at https://gemsofwar.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
