A: We will be merging the Cities from the Domain in which players have logged into most recently. For example, if Player X has Cities on two Domains that are getting merged together, this player will have to log into the Domain with the Cities they want to continue playing prior to the merge. Any training or building queues from these Cities will be carried over to the new Domain.
We will be providing players with plenty of notice as to when each Merge will take place. That way you can make sure you’ve logged into the Domain of the Cities you wish to keep. It should also be noted that the merge will take place over a period of days. More specific information as to when and which Domains will be merged to come.
====================== questions ===================
i have 2 such domains which are going to be merged. and yet it is not clear to me what i should do. after the said notification... which is suppose to be... ? mail? another faq? or caravan announcement? to let me know when it is suppose to start... then ONLY at this time I log into only one domain (which has the better buildings and queued troops) and don't login my other domain and starve out the troops?
how long since the announcement will the merger occur? (supposedly "plenty of notice" may mean 5 or 10 days)? wouldn't it be more prudent since there will be state of flux and lots of confusion to turn OFF troop desertion BEFORE the merger AND after the merger? this way one avoids the another set of complaints which is bound to happen?
more importantly since we are NOT to login to the domain from which cities (and building within) are not going to be migrated... we are indeed abandoning them since we can't actively defend or manage the troops. would it also not be reasonable for the period of time since the announcement of date of merger to set domain wide truce. .. 7 day beginners protection for all if you will. each player has an option to invoke it till the merger is finalized.
and the above wording is vague. if i log into the domain which i only want the troops/items to be migrated but not cities... then i log into the domain which i want the cities to be migrated AFTER the merger date announcement... will i still have the domains CORRECTLy migrated? (not the other way around). up to when, the day before, can i login all the domain making sure that the last domain i log into is INDEED the domain which i want the city migration. will the migration tool that you use take a prelim-snapshot of the domains some days prior (to determine the login order) or will it discern the domain login order at the time of execution?
