City of Heroes: Victory

Victory to merge with Homecoming

Recommended Posts

Hello, with the recent announcement that Homecoming has been granted a License to operate their City of Heroes™ Servers, we have been invited to merge Victory in as a 6th shard along their existing shards.  You will need to opt in to the transfer of your City of Heroes™ data to Homecoming, if you do not link your Victory account to Homecoming, your data will not be transferred, and you will lose your Characters and Supergroups.

If you do not already have a Homecoming account you will need to create both a Forum account AND Game account here: https://forums.homecomingservers.com/getting-started/, and then head to our Account panel https://cityofheroes.dev/forums/account-tools/gameaccount.html/ and link the accounts.  There is no ETA currently for the merge, but it will be happening in the near future.

When our server is merged into Homecoiming, you will keep your characters, their inventory, character descriptions and any Supergroup bases your characters own.  Your global handle may end up changed if it conflicts with an existing global handle in use on Homecoming.  Auction house data may or may not come across, and Architect Entertainment (Mission Architect) arcs will NOT transfer, if you wish to bring your MA Arcs across please make sure you save the arcs and custom critters and re-publish them after the merge.

Do we know when/if the link to connect our accounts will be running. Still getting an error message.

This should be fixed now.  Forum upgrade disabled the module this was hooked in.  Sorry about that, thanks for letting me know!

No issues linking for me.

Do you know about email items? should i make sure to claim my account items before the move?

 

Global emails should transfer over with no issue. Currently Character Items migrate, but not Account Items.  The migration code is still being written though so don't worry about claiming account items just yet.

got the new accounts per the instructions.  i dont see my characters yet.  how long does it take to move over?

 

I'm not sure what instructions you are referring to, or what you mean by "Seeing characters".  If you mean the email from "Closed Beta" that's not us, and their server merge is a different thing from ours.

Does anyone know how they will be handling renaming characters with the same name?

That isn't going to be an issue, Victory will be a 6th shard on the Homecoming server select list.

Hey so...Bluejay here. What do I gotta do? I have my account on Victory. Even if I don't get transferred, I'd really really like to get the name again and play there when I play at all! Victory for life!

 

Edit: I think I pressed the right button

If you go to https://cityofheroes.dev/forums/account-tools/gameaccount.html/  And you see a section for "Your Homecoming account", then you're good to go.

At this point it doesn't seem as though this is ever going to actually take place. 

I mean it has been almost 6 months at this point. 

The merge *is* happening, there have just been a few delays that keep pushing this back at the last moment every time.
