Region Transfer Update
The social and community aspects of Road to Survival are one of the biggest reasons why many players come back day after day. Building relationships with your faction and engaging in cross-faction rivalries make the game fun, exciting and rewarding. Over the past few months we’ve seen a lot of discussion within the community around the amount of player and faction activity on specific realms and concern that it will lead to reduced competition and engagement. We know this is a critical issue for our players.
We have been considering this issue for awhile. In the past, we’ve tried to solve this by stimulating some of our older and lower trafficked realms via merging realms or by opening up older realms to new players. What we found was that these approaches did not work well. Players on merged realms found the experience extremely disruptive, while new players joining old realms were at too severe of a disadvantage.
We’re now working on an approach that we believe will provide a better solution. Currently, players cannot transfer their in-game progress from one realm to another. We’re going to change that by allowing players to transfer their in-game progress from one realm to another, with some limitations to protect newer realms. Whether it’s to seek new competitive challenges, join friends on a different realm, or just to mix things up, our goal to make sure all players are playing on realms that are exciting and provide them with the experience that they want.
We’re working to launch the realm transfer feature this summer. Look for additional details in the coming months.
