News: Flying Lab Software cuts the MMORPG from eleven servers to four servers.



Pirates of the Burning Sea, the swashbuckling MMORPG, has hit a bit of a swell. Developers Flying Lab Software announced that the title will see seven of its eleven servers closed in order to consolidate the playerbase onto the remaining four servers. Players on the affected realms will receive a one-time character move to a realm of their choice, an option available to all of their characters. Societies (guilds) and friends list, will unfortunately be lost as a result of the transfer.

"Through feedback from our players and evaluation of our server populations, it has become clear that key game features require populations of higher density in order to function at optimum levels," said developer Flying Lab Software.

"When you take into account both the disparity in player time zones and the delayed launch of our title in some countries, we were spreading our overall population too thin."

?Providing our customers with the best game play experience is our first priority. Condensing our populations will lead to a richer, more vibrant game play experience for all involved, and our customers whole-heartedly agree. The character transfer option will not be available to our Australian customers on the Invincible server.?

Fans who have more questions regarding the transfer process should head over to the official website where the team has posted a detailed FAQ. Hopefully the team at Flying Lab Software can sustain itself with the lower than expected subscription numbers, otherwise the sea-faring title that broke free from the fantasy/scifi MMORPG mold may be sunk completely.
