Tera’s producer has announced that the game will be facing a reduction in their current list of servers. Starting from the 18th of September, Tera will be hosting three servers only: an unnamed PvE server, an unnamed PvP server and the existing RP server called Celestial Hills.
The producer stated in a letter that this decision was taken to ensure a large and active population in a given server.
All players who currently have more than eight characters will have to delete some of them in order to play. Not complying will have you locked out from the servers. Banks will be merged once the server trimming occurs and all vanarch statuses will be reset.
A comprehensive list of obvious questions have been answered by Tera’s customer service. You can go through their FAQ here.
