Well as expected the updated happened when I was sleeping. It’s quite annoying that all their updates and schedules are LATE WEST COAST time. I mean come on 9PM PST is like midnight EST and I go to bed around 11 😡 Oh well anyway here’s a brief breakdown…
Wednesday, April, 15th, 2009 at 9:00 PM PST (12AM EST)– Albatross18 Account migration begins (I’ll be sleeping so I will do this on Thursday morning)
Thursday, April 16th, 2009 at 7:00 PM PST (10PM EST) – Pangya USA opens for Open Beta
Thursday, April, 16th, 2009 after 7:00 PM PST (10PM EST) – Another Account Migration time
The recovery process includes your level, characters, caddies, mascots, items, and gift boxes. Elements such as Pang, records, trophies, guild affiliation, et cetera will NOT be migrated.
First, you’ll log into your Ntreev USA account (you can create an account if you don’t have one yet). Then, provide your Albatross 18 account ID and Date of Birth. Finally, choose whether you would like to keep your old In-Game Name (IGN), or if you’d like to create a new one when you first log in.
The account migration will take place on: 12:00 AM ~ 2:00 AM PDT (3AM – 5AM EST) on Friday, April 17th
For those transferring accounts a very important notice:
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO KEEP SPECIFIC DATA (CHARACTERS/NON-STACKABLE ITEMS/CADDIES/MASCOTS) FROM YOUR ALBATROSS 18 ACCOUNT, DO NOT ACQUIRE THE SAME CONTENT ON YOUR NTREEV USA ACCOUNT!
This means that if you have a set of Medieval clubs fully upgraded on your old Albatross 18 account, DO NOT buy that clubset on your Ntreev USA account! If you do, you’ll keep the Ntreev USA version, and the Albatross 18 version will NOT be migrated. The same applies to characters, caddies, masctos, and any other non-stackable items. Stackable items will be merged with your current account, so feel free to buy power potions!
And that’s that. My suggestion? Don’t mess around with it, wait to play until Friday if you are transferring accounts. Don’t risk fucking up your character just because you couldn’t wait 1 freaking day. I’ll probably be playing some eroge/wii pangya and won’t actually begin playing until Friday. I imagine that pre-maintenance there’s gonna be a slew of bugs/lag/a ton of people trying to log on at once so I’ll just wait.
Since they are not transferring guilds, there’s been discussion on twitter about re-creating a guild. I’m actually thinking of making the twitter guild since a lot of twitter friends are gonna be playing Pangya (or at least trying it out.) I hope I get enough people to join so that we become official. See you all on Friday! 😀
