Dear MapleStory players,

On June 8, preparations will begin to migrate the Nexon Europe MapleStory service to the
same Nexon Global Launcher currently used by Nexon America. This migration is
part of our ongoing commitment to better position the company for growth across the
Western market. In addition to bringing all Nexon Europe and Nexon America MapleStory
players onto the same service, this migration will combine billing, customer support and
other player-focused services. When the migration of the Nexon Europe MapleStory
service is completed later this year, European MapleStory players will be getting all
the latest content updates even faster than before.

What does this mean for you?

If you are a Nexon America player, there is no real impact to your service. Once the game
migration phase is completed later this year, the existing Europe MapleStory servers will be
available to you when you log into the game. This will allow you to create characters to play
with your European friends if you wish to do so.
 
As a Nexon Europe player, there will be some behind-the-scenes actions to migrate your
account to the new service and allow you to play on the new combined Global MapleStory
(GMS) service. First, you will need to opt into the new Terms & Conditions and Privacy
Policy, and then we will be able to migrate your Nexon account, NX balance, and character
data to the new service. The exact migration of these elements will happen in phases,
with the initial account migration phase beginning tomorrow, June 8.

Once the game migration phase is complete later this year, all Nexon Europe MapleStory
players will be able to access the new GMS service and you will be able to play on the
Europe servers with your existing characters and in-game content as well as creating new
characters on the North American servers if desired. No data will be lost between services
however, a few EU only system and items will be removed and compensation will be made
where necessary.

You will need the Nexon Global Launcher to play the game going forward. Please
keep in mind that current Europe MapleStory players will only be able to play on the new
GMS service if they opt-in to the new service and accept the new Terms & Conditions and
Privacy Policy.  We can legally only allow access to players who opt into the new service,
so if you don’t opt in, you will not be able to play MapleStory once the transfer takes place,
until you accept the new terms. A full Q&A on the service migration and what it means for
you is available on the MapleStory forum here: 
https://forum.nexoneu.com/showthread.php?1541384-NxA-%E2%80%93-NxE-Migration-FAQ%E2%80%99s

We hope that this move will allow us to better service the MapleStory community.

The MapleStory team.

The FAQ they posted on the forum:

NxA – NxE Migration FAQ’s

1. Why is the European service being migrated?
This migration is part of our ongoing commitment to better position the company for growth across the Western market.

In addition to bringing all Nexon Europe and Nexon America MapleStory players onto the same service, this migration will combine billing, customer support and other player-focused services. When the migration of the Nexon Europe MapleStory service is completed later this year, European MapleStory players will be getting all the latest content updates even faster than before.

2. What does this mean for me? 
If you are a Nexon America player, there is no real impact to your service. Once the game migration phase is completed later this year, the existing Europe MapleStory and Vindictus servers will be available to you when you log into the game. This will allow you to create characters to play with your European friends if you wish to do so.

As a Nexon Europe player, there will be some behind-the-scenes actions to migrate your account to the new service. First, you will need to opt into the new Terms & Conditions and Privacy Policy, and then we will be able to migrate your Nexon account, NX balance, and character data to the new service. The exact migration of these elements will happen in phases, with the initial account migration phase beginning tomorrow, June 8.

Your email can be the same one used for your Nexon Europe account, or any other email as long as it has not been used to register an account with Nexon America. Once this is done, the account migration will be complete and you will be able to log into your migrated account through the Global Launcher. 

If you are a Nexon Europe player you, will not be able to play MapleStory, Vindictus, or Combat Arms immediately using the Global Launcher. Announcements on when the service for each game will be available will be given at a later date. You will still be able to play these games using your EU account until each service has been migrated over to the Global Launcher. 

3. Which games will be affected with the migration? How will the migration affect the supported regions for MapleStory, Vindictus, etc?
MapleStory, Vindictus, War Rock, and Combat Arms players: After your account has been migrated, you will not be able to play these games using the Global Launcher until that game has been fully migrated. Announcements for each game will follow at a later date. The European service will still continue to operate during the migration period, and you will be able to play those games using the EU launcher until those games have been fully migrated. 

Please keep in mind that current European MapleStory and Vindictus players will only be able to play on the new GMS/GVS service if they opt-in to the new service and accept the new Terms & Conditions and Privacy Policy. We can legally only allow access to players who opt into the new service, so if you don’t opt in, you will not be able to play MapleStory or Vindictus once the transfer takes place, until you accept the new terms.

4. Will my European NX totals and cash shop purchases carry over with the migration?
Your NX Totals will safely carry over when each individual game service is ready to migrate. *When that happens, a prompt to migrate NX totals will appear and you will have the option to migrate your totals at the time.* Your cash purchases will also transfer at this time. 

The Global Service differentiates NX obtained through PayPal/Credit Card (defined as NX Credit) and Prepaid Cards (defined as NX Prepaid). *Your NX totals at the time of migration will be split into NX Prepaid and NX Credit based on how the NX was obtained.* There are restrictions for transactions using NX Credit, please refer here (http://www.nexon.net/nx/guide/) for more details. 

5. When can we expect the migration to take place from the European Service to the Global Launcher? Will there be any service downtime?
The European Service will experience downtime during the migration period. The schedule is as follows: 

28th September, 2016 (tentative)

Titles will be migrated one by one to the Global Launcher, with additional details in the future.

6. Is there anything I need to do on my end before the migration?
No prior preparation is needed before the migration for either European or North American players besides opting in for the new services (EU players only). 

7. As a European player, where will I need to go for game announcements and community after the migration?
All announcements for your favorite titles will appear on the Global Launcher, which will include links to official websites, forums, and social media channels.

8. With the migration, will I be able to merge a North America and Europe account? Will I be able to transfer a character between servers?
No. You will not be able to merge a European account with an existing North America account.

9. What happens if my game has been migrated to the Global Launcher and I didn't create a Nexon Global Account in time?
Once your game has migrated to the Global Launcher, you will receive a notification upon logging into the Europe Launcher. You will still be able to set up your Nexon Global Account and upgrade the Europe Launcher to the new Global Launcher.
If you experience any issues with this, please contact our [CUSTOMER SUPPORT TICKET]

10. I have an account in Nexon America and in Nexon Europe. Will they become one in the Global Account?
If you have an American and a European account, they will become two separate Global Accounts. If both accounts use the same email address, you will receive a prompt to change your email address when you update your account to a Nexon Global Account.

11. I logged in with my Facebook account. How will the migration work for me?
The first time you login with your Facebook account, you will have the opportunity to update your account to a Nexon Global Account. You will be asked to provide an email address to associate with your new Global Account. 
It will not be possible to log into the new Global Account or the Global Launcher with your Facebook account. After you have updated your account to a Global Account, you will be able to login with your email address immediately.

12. What will happen with my game and personal data?
During the migration you will get a prompt for the new policies and agreements. Please read them carefully to be fully informed. We can ensure you that your data will be handled with high security standards and will only be used for the purposes mentioned within the policies and agreements.

13. Will the games of Nexon Korea also be available?
No. Currently, Nexon Korea games will not be accessible with the new Global Launcher.

14. My favorite game is not listed as a game which will be migrated. Where can I find more information on this?
Please visit the website for your specific tile in question, which will contain appropriate answers.

15. If I have an open ticket on the Europe server, will it be serviced or will I need to open a new ticket? Moving forward, where will I need to go to open a new support ticket?
For the time being, continue using the Customer Support portal for your region. Once migration is complete, we recommend that you file new support tickets at that time for any outstanding issues.

16. What will happen to the Europe community forums and social channels?
For the forums, we are in the process of migrating all to a new Global Forums Platform. This process has already been in process for our newer titles such as First Assault, Riders of Icarus, and LawBreakers, but we will eventually migrate our current forums for other titles to this new platform. Dates for each individual forum are unknown at this time.

For the Social Channels, such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and more, we are in the process of combining those pages into one large Global page which will serve the needs of our new Global Service. A date for the completion of this merger is unknown at this time.

17. How will the migration affect future updates and maintenance?
Updates to our titles within the Global Launcher will continue as they have in the past. There may be some extended maintenances that will occur, but aside from that, service will be updated and have maintenance performed on a similar cadence to our current schedule.

18. What will happen to the GM’s across each service?
This conversation is still on-going for the upcoming migration, and we’ll provide an update once more information is known.

19. [MAPLESTORY ONLY] Are there plans to perform a World-Transfer Event directly with the migration?
There are no current plans for this.

20. [MAPLESTORY ONLY] Will the European and North American regions culminate in having the same content?
Once the game migration is completed, the Content and Events will be the same and further details on item differences are still being reviewed at this time. There may be the case that a few EU only system and items will be removed and compensation will be made where necessary.

21. [VINDICTUS ONLY] Will the European Server continue to be an XE server, or will they adopt the North American Premiere Service?
The European Service will be adopting the North American Premiere Service.

For any additional questions, please file a [CUSTOMER SUPPORT TICKET]
