    Default Russians taking over Allods US and EU

    As u all know Allods had a rough time in the US and EU. With bad management and all that stuff.
    Mail.ru the original publisher with original developer will be taking over.
    They will start transferring accounts around March 18th.
    Great knews since Gpotato didnt really did a great job over the years i cant be more excited about it.
    Also new expansion is coming right after the transfer that is gonna change the game completely with the new stats system, new lvl cap and a new class engineer.
    Will make balancing stats a bit easier and less stressful

    Stay tuned for more info once more details comes up.

    UPDATE:
    Applying for transfer has began, but for now its only in-game. So if you guys got some Allods account u will want to transfer, you will have to download and login to the game. And the message like this will pop:


    Also they confirmed that they will be merging all the players from NA and EU servers into one, following Italian and Turkish players few weeks after.
    And the new expansion is also coming the same day they transfer NA and EU players, march 18th.


    UPDATE #2 17th March

    Tomorrow the NA and EU servers are shutting down and the transfer to the original publishers will take place.
    New website is open http://en.allods.com/.
    Transfer page for NA server, http://en.gpotato.com/Transfer/Allods.aspx
    Transfer page for EU server, http://en.gpotato.eu/Transfer/Allods.aspx

    Weren't the devs also the guys who basically said they don't give two shits about the players and said they'd make the game p2w because they only care about the money?

    When I played in the closed beta, and as it was moving to OB, I thought it was mail.ru who made the game p2w and forced the US publisher's hand in that regard after kicking the game's creator out of the picture who did not want the game to be p2w. That's how I remember it anyway.

    I may be thinking of the wrong game... but didn't the devs make it super P2W then offer "paid servers" so players could get away from it.

    Smart.

    I thought the thread title meant there was like a massive influx of Russian players, like the last time I played America's Army there was nothing but arab-speaking players in the chat window

    Yes game had some crazy restrictions and issues with item shop but that was like 3 years ago. Game has changed a lot since then.
    For me its one of the best F2P games out there.
    And all the things u buy in item shop or use to upgrade ur character u actually are upgrading ur account.
    In other free to play games, u use item shop to upgrade ur items , in Allods u use item shop to upgrade ur account.
    Since all those upgrades are shared across all ur characters. Also items that u bought to upgrade ur char are gonna be with u forever even when u change gear. The only issue i had with the game is population and bad managment which is gonna be a thing of the past soon.

    Management changes are okay but I doubt there will be a population influx.NA is low and EU servers are practically dead with the exception of 2-3 higher leveled guilds who play and that's no more than 200 players.Good luck getting solo to max level alone though because there's no one to help you with leveling.All alone for 98% of the game.Russians taking over doesn't mean that population will change .. not at all.RU Allods is pack full but that's Russia.They don't have many good games there either way.

    Even now leveling is not a problem. There is plenty of guilds that help new players on the US server.
    And there will be more population since US and EU are gonna merge into one server.
    Nnot to mention new players will have only one server to choose which automatically means more players

    Is it confirmed that the server is gonna be one ? And what about ping ? 1 Server located .. where ? If it's in NA there is high ping in EU and EU players will suffer SO much in PvP and the other way around I don't know how they think they can manage it properly like this.If the server is located in Russia that means high ping and awful PvP for both most of EU and NA.

    I highly doubt it's going to get any less p2w though. That's all that matters.

    mail.ru hosts archeage, why should they care about na/eu allods? lol no one will play that shit anyway because mail.ru are notorious for making ridiculous cash shops.

    At first yes but log into Allods RU and see .. people from 5 years play on it.The cash shop isn't trouble at all plus u can get everything from it in game with a tad bit of gold.They have so much more stuff NA didn't ever get .. I'm amazed.I just don't know if 100 ping is okay for this game's PvP to play it.

    you can play wow arena with 100ping and get to high rating, and that is several times more twitch based than this

    Ping is never an issue for games like Allods/WoW, u can play fine with 200ms.
    Also i get 140ms from EU playing on US server and I dont notice it.

    If you followed the news about Allods the past years you should be aware that it has P2P servers now which are actually quite highly populated.

    The dead feeling just comes because the world is so incredibly huge that if you are on the field it's fairly unlikely to meet someone else. It has many open areas and various different spots you can find monsters for a quest. But in the main town you will see several players all the time.

    Also wasn't the Russian server always P2P anyway? I thought the F2P P2W thingy was GPotato only.

    It actually was P2P right before it launched, when they completely changed it to F2P. Right at the end of the Tutorial zone, it had a message about purchasing the full game to experience it entirely. So, yes, it was supposed to be P2P but ended up being changed to F2P. I'm sure Mail.RU had no objections about making a P2P server.
    Current Games:

    Overwatch (NA - PC)
    Battleborn (NA - PC)
    Albion Online (CBT)

    Waiting for:

    No Man's Sky (PC)
    Chronicles of Elyria (PC)

    RU launched a p2p server a few months back too The game has always been a f2p game and always will be.They made a p2p server for people who wanted to pay to support the game and removed the annoying and time costing parts of the game in that server to make it easier for paying people and bring it all down to skills.This is what I like in Allods P2P.It's all about skill in there but I don't want to pay for a game I can't understand(coz it's in russian duuh ) or is practically dead in EU/NA ( a few hundred people at max isn't much)

    The mechanics of the game are good. Classes/factions/art direction were all good. But, runes and blessings and the p2w aspects is what killed it.
