Servers - EU Server Retirement

    We have made the decision to not renew the EU hosting for Shotbow. For many months now, the US instance of Shotbow has been helping cover the costs for the EU instance by a large margin. In addition, many EU players stated that they have been using the US instance as their primary instance for some time. As a result, we felt this was the best course for the longevity of the network.

    Going forward, eu.shotbow.net will point to our US proxies. We will maintain that for some time to prevent confusion. Additionally, we will be transitioning inventories and stats from the appropriate game modes to the US over the next few weeks. How stats and inventories are handled (merged, best inventory, user choice) will happen on a game mode by game mode basis.

    I know it is hard to see a major change like this, but we've been discussing it for some time and the ability to streamline our offering to a single region reaps a ton of benefits for the development of updates and game modes going forward.

    Thanks for all EU players who have supported us over the last few years and we hope you are able to find a comfortable home in our US instance going forward.

    The stats will be transfered, how - each gamemode will do it differently, yet to be decided.

    Did you already remove EU items ? For MineZ I stored items on both EU and US and I'd like to transfer EU items to another account so I can keep both.. Or it's possible to transfer to another account ? (I guess not)
    I got my answer about EU being available.

    I, too, have only ever had bad latency on US servers (never less than 100 ms, usually more than 150 ms). This is one of the reasons why I disagree with this decision.
    But if the EU hosting isn’t renewed, maybe you can buy better hosting in the US which offers better latencies all around the world?

    EU was fun and so is US! Thanks for this update. In addition, people are complaining about ping. I had 15 ms on EU Shotbow and on US I have 150 average. Honestly, I don't think it's too bad. I've won Smash matches, Annihilation games and a lot of other stuff with US ping.

    Come on, this is the best for Shotbow and that's what we should be caring about. I respect the decision and try to make the best of it, because being optimistic about it is better than complaining about it.

    The stats and levels ect SHOULD be transferred over to U.S however we are unsure how long it will take. With EU being down all gamemodes will need worked on to transfer things so sit tight. As stated above, it may take a few weeks.
