Merges 2022

  • Ave Gladiators,


    on 21.06.2022, maintenance will be carried out to update the game to version v4.3.0 in preparation for the server merge. During the maintenance the servers may be offline for a few minutes. You can read the full changelog for version 4.3.0 here: Changelogs - Game updates


    The merges will run according to the schedule which will be added in this thread. Please note that servers will be merged in groups, not all at once, so keep an eye on this topic in the coming weeks to learn when and where exactly your server is going to be merged.


    The FAQ posted below contains everything that you need to know about the merge and what it will mean for you.


    Kind regards

    Your Gladiatus Team

  • FAQ:

    Heroes of Rome, lend me your ears: the day of the server merge approaches!

    By merging provinces, we will bring stability to the Roman Empire and give them a new lease of life. Here is everything you need to know.



    We will be merging existing communities into newly launched servers as follows:


    - The destination servers for merges will be newly opened English servers.

    - There will be servers for 1x, 2x, 4x and 5x game speeds.

    - Players will be able to choose their own display and communication languages on the new servers.

    - Merges will be grouped based on community and speed settings and done in batches, instead of all at once.


    Name Conflicts


    - Character Names:


    If a name appears more than once, the corresponding character name will be given a code (e.g. Caesar will become Caesar#en20). Upon first logging in, you will then be able to choose a new name at no cost.

    If you do not have a name conflict but would like to have a new name, you will also have an opportunity to rename yourself once for free.


    - Guild Names:


    The same rules apply as with the character names. However, Guilds will not be forced to change their names after the server merge.


    Arena and Circus Turma


    - The Arena and Circus Turma pots will be reset.

    - Arena cooldown and attack protection will also be reset.


    Reports and Statistics


    - The following features will still be available on the destination server, but will not be migrated from the original server:

    - Battle reports

    - Statistics for first-time defeats of bosses

    - 7-day highscores

    - Recruiting messages


    Centurion


    - The Centurion periods will be extended by the duration of the server merge.


    Market, Merchant, and Auction House


    - Placed offers will still be available after the merge.

    - If the duration of an offer expires during the merge, the items will be returned as a package.

    - Bids on offers will be refunded.

    - Items sold to the Merchant can only be bought back after the merge if the Merchant has not been reset during the merge period. If the Merchant has been reset, no buy backs will be possible.


    FAQ - additional information:

    • server mergers do not affect vacation mode,
    • accounts marked for deletion during the merge will not be there afterwards (meaning if you set your account for deletion before merge, after the merge is finished/done that account will be gone).

  • Additional information regarding package duration:


    Please note that the packages duration will not be frozen/prolonged by the duration of the server merge. Therefore packages which are due to expire exactly on the merge day should be handled/taken care of beforehand (for example a day before).

  • Ave Gladiators,


    due to unforeseen technical circumstances we are forced to delay v4.3.1 and the merges.

  • The new dates for the first wave of merges have been decided.


    The current plan is as follows:



    • July 20th at 9:00 CEST– 1st Merge - Target EN 47


    • July 25th – 2nd Merge - Target EN 49


    • July 26th – 3rd Merge - Target EN 50


    • July 27th – 4th Merge - Target EN 51


    • August 2nd – 5th Merge - Target EN 51 EN 50 EN 49 EN 47

  • Dear Players,



    Please note that while the merge is running all affected servers will not be available for the whole duration of the merge process. Once the merge is finished, you will be able to play your accounts on the target servers and the source servers will be closed.



    We currently don't know for sure, how long the merge process itself will actually take. We'll keep you updated and will inform you, as soon as we know more about it.



    Thank you for your patience and understanding.

    Your Gladiatus Team.

  • Dear Players,


    we had to stop today's EN merge due to unexpected issues that did not occur during our internal merge tests.

    Source servers that were supposed to be merged today will be reopened, so you can play your accounts on the old rounds.

    The merge process will be restarted tomorrow, 21.07.2022 at 9:30 CEST.


    We apologise for any inconvenience this has caused and appreciate your understanding as we work to resolve these issues.


    Your Gladiatus Team.

  • Additional information:


    Mergers carried out on servers in your community may temporarily affect the cross realm arena and circus (Provinciarum Arena & Circus Provinciarum). If there are players from merged servers on the opponent list, attacking them will result in an error message that the battle could not take place.
    This issue is fixed during the automated opponent list generation on each server and should not persist for longer than 24h.

  • Dear Players,


    today's merge for the target server EN47 has been completed. Please note that due to the high load shortly after the merge, you may experience longer loading times or smaller issues in the game.

    We are monitoring the situation and ask for your patience as we work to resolve these problems.

    Due to this we will also leave the signup closed on this round (EN47) until the situation has improved again.


    Kind regards,
    Your Gladiatus Team

  • Dear players,



    We are aware of the extreme loading times, lags and problems on EN51. Of course, this is not a state we want to leave like that obviously and are already working on a solution since this morning. We hope to have found the cause soon and will inform you as soon as we have news.




    Kind regards,

    Your Gladiatus Team

  • Ave Gladiators,



    We are aware that en_51 is currently suffering from poor performance and are trying to address the issue. But to be sure not to add to the problem, the rounds scheduled to be merged to en_51 on August 4th (pl_35, pl_37, pl_46, pl_51) will be merged to en_55 instead.



    Here is the updated plan for the next week merges:

    pl_40

    pl_35
    pl_37
    pl_46

    2) exact time unknown, starting once the previous merge (for EN55) is done -> Target EN 50 (4x speed)

    pl_36

    Reminder: While the merge is running all affected servers (=target and source servers) will not be available for the whole duration of the merge process.
