Apperently, SOE teamed up with ProSiebenSat.1 Games to host their games now. So far I'm okay with that, but a FORCED account transfer is something I don't want to happen. Why..? ProSiebenSat.1 Games is one of the 2 worst EU gaming publishers around (yes, the other one is FROGSTER), and I don't wany them to hold my data and host MY games. Not to mention, looking at US->EU transitions in the past (Lineage II and Aion come to mind), these transitions tend more to be a failure than a success, with the new EU servers left to die, or very low populated.
I do enjoy playing EverQuest II right now on the US server (went there on purpose) because it's an alive server. With the upcoming transition, I'm not sure what will happen to the server population, merges or whatever might happen. I might as well end up on a German server (not my native language, but it won't be the 1st time SOE takes Dutch players for knowing German...) or a server that ends up dead.
Think if SOE sticks to this FORCED transition, my best guess will be to cancel all recent cc payments I made and not play EQ2 anymore...
