[Dev Update] Taiwan Service Migration - 8 April 2008
Because of recent changes to Taiwanese law that restrict our ability to maintain a quality game experience for players and maintain the in-game economy, ArenaNet and NC Taiwan have agreed to close Guild Wars servers in Taiwan. In order to continue to provide service to NC Taiwan players, all Taiwanese accounts that were paid up and in good standing as of April 1, 2008 will be migrated to the North American servers on April 10, 2008.
Retail accounts will continue to function as normal. Monthly accounts that were paid up and in good standing as of April 1, 2008 will be upgraded to retail accounts at no charge. All account restrictions, such as trading restrictions, which were applied on March 31 will be lifted. As a condition of their migration and being able to play Guild Wars from the North American servers, players will need to accept NC Interactive’s Guild Wars User Agreement for North America.
