BioWare Releases Oceanic Launch Details, Includes Server Names & Types
Fearless Community Leader Stepehen Reid just took to the official forums with a post that should be of great interest to TOR players in the Oceanic region of the world… launch details and server names just for you! The biggest advantage here is of course that these servers are located regionally, and game performance should be markedly better.
BioWare had previously announced that they would be launching the game in Oceana on March 1st, and now we have details… and in fact, depending where you are, the launch of these servers might even be as soon as tomorrow!
Here’s our official launch timing. All servers will be online simultaneously at approx 5:01AM CST (Austin time), but with timezones straddling a date
New Zealand: 12:01am NZDT (March 1st)
Australia: 10:01pm EDT (February 29th)
Singapore: 7:01pm SGT (February 29th)
Hong Kong: 7:01pm HKT (February 29th)
Of further interest are the server names and types – crucial for MMO fans to rally their friends and all get on the same page:
We’ll be launching with three initial servers dedicated to these territories. As previously mentioned, these servers are physically located in Australia:
Master Dar’Nala (PvP)
Gav Daragon (RP PvE)
Not covered yet is the clarity on character transfers for players that have already started them on North American or European realms. Reid mentions that an FAQ will be coming out tomorrow, and perhaps we’ll know more about it then.
In the mean time, head over and check out Mr. Reid’s entire post!
