I come from The Kabam Website of "Stormfall". (A Seperate Server/Realm)

I also have intel that we will be moved to the Plarium Server/Realm, I have an Account already in Both Plarium Servers/Realms.

Will we in the Kabam Server/Realm come to an already established Plarium Server/Realm, or will there be a Transfer of all our Beacons in a New Plarium Server/Realm. There is SO Many unanswered questions.

We in our Kabam Server/Realm have been Given this Message in-Game and on our Stormfall Forums:

CRITICAL: Server Shutdown Imminent!

Payments Will Be Suspended Soon!

Dear Player,

IMPORTANT!

From 15 February 2017, all in-game payments on this server will be disabled!

On 20 February 2017, this server will be shut down permanently.

But have no fear! Your hard work developing your Castle shall not go to waste. We will save your progress and you will be able to continue playing Stormfall: Age of War from your same account on a different server!

Fear not, Lords and Ladies! Further instructions shall be provided on February 20th.

*****************************************************************************************************


So if we are to be Shut down and moved on the 20th, It would be good to be very Prepared for such move and given better intel before Feb 20th


Thanks for any help we can get

I haven't heard anything about this happening.  So if it does you will probably be moved to a separate server and just be on the plarium.com site instead of kabam.

Hey, that was the 1st league I was in !


Given you were all on the Kabam server so it was just me and one random guy out of 20 that breathed here on this server.


But that was my first League !

All players from Kabam server will be transferred to a new server on plarium.com, however, all progress/Beacons/troops/neighborhoods will be the same as on Kabam server. So don't worry, all progress will be saved.

So this is not a merge of servers?

You are simply changing the server on which game data is hosted and nothing at all will change for the players (apart from a bit of downtime). I assume simply because Kabam don't want to continue supporting their own server?

That is correct, everything should be the same.

 I guess it just reached critical mass vs revenues.

Kabam has cut 8% of its development workforce, early 2016, it has been losing revenue BIG time,  $180 million of sales in 2012, $360 million in 2013 and $400 million in 2014. Meanwhile it kept buying dead tittles, it bough games such as Kingdoms of Camelot and The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth to mobile. Then with financial difficulty it kept selling out its mobile games, to Chinise companies. It sold Kingdoms of Camelot: Battle for the North, The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth, and Dragons of Atlantis: Heirs of the Dragon to  Gaea Mobile. 

Then in 2013 it committed suicide when management announcedit will'' hire professional managers that favored strategies geared toward short-term revenue goals followed by an IPO''

Kabam is "It is running out of cash'' and its happeining in a very fast rate. 

But I heard A BEE buzzing bee that plarium is looking to consolidate its servers and to to use the KoK/UE money  to transfer its servers to Http+7

Just because something isn't a lie does not mean that it isn't deceptive. A liar knows that he is a liar, but one who speaks mere portions of truth in order to deceive is a craftsman of destruction.....Gedleyihlekisa: Oracle the postremogeniture

Yes, this is not a merge of servers, we'll add a new server for players for Kabam with all data. And other players will be able to play there too. 


We appreciate our players and we will do our best in order to save their achievements in the game. However, closing our games on Kabam is a two-way solution. It was nice to work with them, however, due to changes, which are taking place on Kabam now, it was decided to close our games there.

Yes it would have been nice to know that it could take up to a week for this move




Now we Wait....

But I have a Question ...

Is there going to be a "3rd" Realm/Server players can see and come join our Realm From Kabam??

Somewhat like the pic below?



If so ... I AM RECRUITING LoL

We suppose it will take one or two days to finish the process of transfer.

Was prices on Kabam less than prices here on Plarium? Would cost of things maintan the same, or become the same across the board?

No reason or evidence to believe that


I have played on all servers (inc facebook) for a long time
Facebook is considerably cheaper, but kabam and plarium should be identical

The main difference will be unlimited friends which kabam has always been denied

My biggest concern is that kabam players are mostly old-school gamers who do not rely on credit cards to gain unfair advantages


An influx of plarium coiners will kill the kabam server in no time at all - kabam already lost 50% of their beacons in recent massacre events

No doubt the new server will be filled with bots, alts, hackers and scammers within 24 hours of opening
