Important Project Update 03.11.2017

Dear players, 

We would like to inform you about upcoming plans and some information regarding all of our servers, including progression to The Burning Crusade. Please read this carefully and use this forum to give constructive ideas and suggestions. As always, we take your feedback seriously and may action any information forwarded to us.

Nighthaven

Nighthaven is a fast progressive fresh server which launched on the 5th November 2017. This server will progress through the patches in around 12 months time. A full timeline can be seen here: https://forum.elysium-project.org/topic/57779-nighthaven-pvp-%E2%80%94-timeline

Nighthaven has been a huge success and with peaks reaching to 5,500 players and rising, we are extremely grateful to the community. We would also like to express how enthusiastic and friendly the community is. It is a pleasure to see such a community grow, even the Orcs are being nice!

The system running the server is handling all information extremely efficiently and we are addressing the random crashes which occur. Most crashes have been resolved now, and it has only been happening occasionally but we're almost there! The Game Master team are extremely efficient and tickets are answered within 15 minutes, if not sooner. This is dependent on the situation but most common issues are within the 30-minute mark! We will continue to advertise Nighthaven, and we will continue to provide transparent and recent updates regarding the server and all statistics regarding it. Thank you for playing, and don't forget to invite your friends!

The Burning Crusade

We have begun development and fixes to our TBC realm. So far, we have a strong team looking into all possibilities and the plan is to get a Beta version out for you in the near future. We receive many questions about this, so I will try and answer a few of them here:

  • How can we transfer and who can transfer? Before the launch, characters from Nighthaven will be invited to copy their characters over to our TBC realm.
  • What happens to our Vanilla characters? Nothing, they will stay uncopied on the Nighthaven server. They will be untouched and available for use anytime. As above, a copy of your character will be in the TBC realm if you choose to do so.
  • What about Stratholme characters? See below on details about Stratholme, but there may be a possible to have all previous backups that we owned in which we can transfer to the TBC realm for you.

Stratholme

Stratholme and the character restoration tool was purely made to give players a choice as to which server to play on, so we decided to give the community that choice. The character restoration tool is working for the majority of players and has successfully restored over 10 thousand player accounts. This transfer does not affect your Light's Hope characters and all information provided is securely protected, despite rumours. We can also prove that. We were extremely unhappy with the unprofessionalism of some parties, but the past is in the past.

On that note, we will, unfortunately, be closing the Stratholme server down. We will still provide character restorations in case of unforeseen circumstances so you will always have a home to go to. We also believe that if certain Private Servers are shutting down due to the launch of official realms, we want to give those players the option to stay alongside their friends and guildmates.

The server will be unavailable early hours on the 4th December 2017.

Why has this decision come about? 

We are aware that many factors come into this, so we will go through some of the basic ones.

We are well aware that a lot of players are loyal to us, and that they wanted to play on Stratholme for awhile. Unfortunately, due to the actions of particular individuals, and the unprofessionalism in how the situation was handled, it took us far too long to allow the players to have a choice in where they wanted to play. Ultimately, a lot of players wanted to move, but a lot also didn't want to. This break in playing time in which we were trying to restore services took longer than expected and now players are unlikely to want to return, and that... we understand. We understand that players want to stay with their friends and guildmates. We wish you the best of luck but please remember that we will always stand by the community of Anathema, Darrowshire and Elysium servers and will always provide a place for you when you need it 

We would like to thank this community for bringing us hours of entertainment whilst watching you Raid, PvP and trolling us on Discord. We wish you happy adventures and again, we understand as to why you'd choose to not go through the trouble when you have somewhere to play. But remember, the restoration tool is still available, and we will provide you with a home if the unexpected happens.

Thank you all for your support, and there will be some very exciting news coming up soon!

Regards,
Elysium Staff.

rip.

 

But an understanble cause of action.

 

I highly enjoy Nighthaven, I'll be staying on it eventhough I do sometimes have wet top tier mage dreams.

I have a character on Nighthaven, only to bide my time waiting to see if/when a PvE server would become available. 
I will not jump ship because it took too long to get Stratholme running, or for whatever security rumors are floating around. I'm fine with all that. I'm not staying for any friends or guildies. I'm staying because this has long been called the best private server.
I am lurking these forums to see if there's ever going to be a PvE server choice again, and if not, THAT, is the reason I jump ship. I'm sure I'm not the only one. About HALF the people that were polled, wanted PvE. How many that never even bothered or saw the poll wanted it?

So can I have my newly made character I have spent 16 hours on leveling restored to Nighthaven? I literally just finished typing up a huge report to post on bugs I found in Stratholme while leveling.

Sad... a shame my characters will be lost since they can't be moved to Nighthaven. I will not return.

Can we PLEASE just have a server I can use my characters from Darrowshire on, and stop all this up/down/transfer ?

Seconded, I'm never going back to Lights Hope even if it does have my characters on it. What they did was inherently wrong.

I quit playing a while ago and decided to come back because I like the game. My trouble is, I lost all of the characters that I spent a great deal of time on and I really really don't want to start over. Is there going to be some way to transfer the characters that I lost to Nighthaven?

So, that means I lost my Strathome character, right? Or how can I restore it?

You cannot play your old Nost/Elysium characters on Elysium Project right now. Either go fresh or go to LH.

Most people seem pretty confused about what is going on here.

The restoration tool.. It is not working. You can still pull up your old characters, but as others have said when you click "restore" the website responds, "server error".

I imagine this is because restored characters are supposed to be sent to Stratholme (Is this part true?), a server that does not exist. Why would you brag about and continue to run the restoration tool if the server it "restores" to has been shut down? That means the restoration tool is useless, as no one who plays on Elysium can recover their old characters on the new Nighthaven server. Is this correct?

Wait so, Stratholme is no longer? Our chars from Anathema & co are gone? My only option is to start over on Nighthaven? :(

That is the case. Nighthaven is our only realm and since it is a fresh realm, no character transfers are allowed at this point. We would like to have you on Nighthaven though. :)

Hours and hours of farming, grinding, lvling up professions and the like are gone to waste?

Gone for good.

No restoration or transfer to Nighthaven possible. They want you to spend the same amount of time you spent on Darrowshire/Anathema on Nighthaven again.

Gotta say, that's really disappointing. Was looking forward to leveling my alt there and raiding on my main chars... dunno if I have the energy to start over completely on a new realm. *sadface*

I can't help but think that closing the realm was premature. Surely, there might be a chance albeit a small one that some of the guilds would migrate back.

I might be lost here devs, but I heard rumours that we will be able to restore our old elysium/anathema characters when the tbc server launches(if that is true of course). So we will just have to wait around a year before playing our old character again?

Stop the fast paced progression.  The majority of the server doesn't want it.  WoW Classic is not going to even be a thing for another two years.

Actually, a vote was cast and many players did want it. In fact of 5 thousand players are playing which wanted it. WoW classic is always 'a thing' but the whole point of Nighthaven is a fast progressive server which will go to TBC in which we will be one expansion ahead of Blizzard. But we will always keep your Vanilla characters available for use.
