Update from Nevrax:
The merge between Arispotle and Windermeer will be taking a bit longer than expected. Arispotle will not be available again tonight at midnight as previously announced. Arispotle will be re-opened tomorrow morning at 9am Paris time.
The reason for this delay is that our System Engineers are spending more
time than originally planned on duplicate character names. There is a considerable amount of duplicate character names across both servers, and the guys want to take the time to handle them properly and not rush just to match the deadline...
And since delaying it only for a few hours would get us to the middle of the night, we post-poned it to the next morning, to be able to deliver better
support once the server is open again.

April 6, 2005 : Merge between Windermeer and Arispotle successful !
Just a quick note to inform you that the main and toughest part of the merge between the Artispotle and Windermeer shards, performed on Monday, was successful. The highly critical operations needed for the shard merge kept the system engineers busy for 19 hours, and the few glitches that occured were quickly fixed. Now, 24 hours after the reopening, we can confirm you that everything is running fine. Tomorrow afternoon, between 12 am and 2 pm (Paris time), there will be a quick patch to add the final touch such as honorific titles for the characters who originated from Windermeer. Thank you for your support !
