The call has come down from the starter's booth: you have been given a tee time, and it's at twilight rates to boot!
The Pangya Open Beta Begins on:
Thursday, April 16th, 2009 at 7:00 PM PDT (-7 UTC)
The Albatross 18 Account Migration process will begin on:
Wednesday, April, 15th, 2009 at 9:00 PM PDT (-7UTC)
There will be a short Beta Preparation and Migration maintenance on Thursday, April, 16th, 2009 between 4:00 PM and 7:00 PM
The Account Migration process will commence again on:
Thursday, April, 16th, 2009 after 7:00 PM PDT (-7UTC)
(There will be a "Recover Account" button on the Official Pangya site. The Actual migration will require a Maintenance)
Servers are opening then and you'll be able to log in and enjoy Pangya in its new home. Starting April, 15th, 2009 at 9:00 PM, you will be able to request recovery of any previous Albatross 18 accounts you may have. The recovery process includes your level, characters, caddies, mascots, items, and gift boxes. Elements such as Pang, records, trophies, guild affiliation, et cetera will NOT be migrated.
The process is simple and will be initiated via the website (http://pangya.ntreev.net/). First, you'll log into your Ntreev USA account (you can create an account if you don't have one yet). Then, provide your Albatross 18 account ID and Date of Birth. Finally, choose whether you would like to keep your old In-Game Name (IGN), or if you'd like to create a new one when you first log in. Please note that if existing IGNs do not adhere to Ntreev USA naming conventions, a rename will be prompted regardless.
Once you have confirmed the transfer, your actual account data will be merged in the next server maintenance.
The first maintenance period scheduled after launch will be held from 12:00 AM ~ 2:00 AM PDT (-7 UTC) on Friday, April 17th
In other words five hours after the game launches. You can play Pangya in the meantime, but please bear in mind this very important warning:
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO KEEP SPECIFIC DATA (CHARACTERS/NON-STACKABLE ITEMS/CADDIES/MASCOTS) FROM YOUR ALBATROSS 18 ACCOUNT, DO NOT ACQUIRE THE SAME CONTENT ON YOUR NTREEV USA ACCOUNT!
This means that if you have a set of Medieval clubs fully upgraded on your old Albatross 18 account, DO NOT buy that clubset on your Ntreev USA account! If you do, you'll keep the Ntreev USA version, and the Albatross 18 version will NOT be migrated. The same applies to characters, caddies, masctos, and any other non-stackable items. Stackable items will be merged with your current account, so feel free to buy power potions!
Thank you all very much for your patience during this transition period, we look forward to seeing you all on the greens soon.
Swing for the Heavens!
