Hm. That explains things. I was wondering if the merger test had begun when I had to update my client. When I didn't see anything, I checked here before creating a uselss spam thread asking when this would occur.

Makes sense too, it's 11:47 AM here on the East Coast.

The best guess for testing to start is 3pm PST, ie compertitition close time.
Would like developerers to confirm or deny this.
Also information from them of what they would like testing.
In order that this nothing (000) stage of merge is kept to a minimum, and we can get to the real fun.

Sorry if I missed it, but will existing characters/resources be transferred to the merged oceans? I realize no progress will be saved, but will we have the ability to blow all our funds doing stupid shiz? Or is it a "fresh" ocean in the sense that we'll have to create characters and the like?

Everything should be transferred over to the test oceans, just as they will be when the live oceans get up and running.

Saving progress on the test ocean would mean that progress on the production oceans would not be saved. That would be unacceptable to OOO (and most players) and I'm sure OOO would not let that happen.

Some sort of update on the status of the test release might be an example of professionalism.

First thing I noticed- boots, familiar, and hat were all unequipped. Not a problem, they're still right there in the booty panel, but if this is going to happen when the main oceans merge you may want some sort of "Don't panic!" warning.

Holy booched map, Batman. (I've bugged missing memmed lps already. Though in my bug report, I mentioned missing most of sapphire(including islands)...and then I noticed a second arch was missing, too. Yikes. Been too long since I've been on Midnight, clearly.)

(Portraits are also not displaying, but I assume that's intentional.)

It appears that cerulean is the only test ocean up...

For those that haven't logged on yet, here is the notice board news:

READ THIS!
THIS IS ONLY A TEST: This ocean is currently provided for testing purposes only. This means that any progress you make, any pieces of eight you spend, any ships you sink, anything you change or win or lose on this test ocean will be cleared before the official merge!
Where's my stuff? We took a snapshot of Midnight and Cobalt on December 31st for this test. Anything that happened after December 31st on the official oceans will not show up here, but fear not; you will not lose any property o r progress during the official merge.

Please report any bugs you find with /bug.
Please post suggestions for improvements to the forums for discussion.
This ocean will be available for a limited period of time and may frequently be taken down for updates. We apologize for the inconvenience!
Known Issue: Existing portraits are booched. We still need to migrate them over.
Thank you for helping us prepare to unite the oceans. We appreciate it!

Here's a rough idea of the merged map, combining my mostly memorized Midnight with my halfway memorized Viridian. The X is Conglin.



Looks like the interarches will be Pearl/Jade and Onyx/Opal.

There were tournaments posted with interocean charts. The Cobalt islands were Last Stand Hill and Sakejima, but I don't remember what the Midnight islands were.

Let's hope Onyx and Jade doesn't connect on Virdian/Meridian. Almost makes the least populated side of Viridian even more useless. And right after a island opens there...

Does this still mean that Emerald and Meridian will be up for testing in the near future (no dubs) or that all testing will be done on Cerulean?

They're probably trying to get the worst of the bugs worked out before testing the other two. They did specifically mention testing the green oceans (setting them to subscriber temporarily), so I wouldn't worry about it.

Now that there are very many more places that people could be, would it be possible to expand the /who list to at least include the number of people in other arches?

And I /bugged the missing league points as well. Though I didn't think to screenshot it. Doh!

My chart looked very much like Fiddler's, although I don't have any of Cobalt's islands yet. It seemed like it deleted everything in the third grid square from the top. I hope this is just a bug, and that our meming progress will be unaffected.
