I read the announcement but there's so much listed in there I can't remember what we already had and what is new other than no logout penalty for commerce.
The big ones are the bank/check/auction upgrades. Or at least, those are the big ones for me. I have a *LOT* of crud I need to clear out, and house shops were never good enough.
The return of free Nao rezzes: I don't know if this is going to work the exact same as before, but it's something we had back in the day. It made me very angry that it was removed back then. Now I'm not so sure. I don't really use them often enough for it to matter anymore, but it is one less thing to deal with. Back in the old days you got a rez 3 times per in-game day. I don't know if that's going to be the same now.
No expiration on combo cards, echostone tab, etc: This is mainly a QoL upgrade. One less "thing to do" to maintain your character.
I'll add my piece here. I do not think Alexina should merge with the others. Locking out newbies for a month would generally be bad for business. I have seen dead servers on various games, and Alexina is *NOT* one of them by any stretch of the imagination.
Even at 7AM I found active players messing around in various areas, running content, or just having fun. Were they speaking out loud? No. Because discord, groupchat, and guildchat are a thing.
Are there AFK players? Sure. Because Mabi has a lot of events that require extra login time, Mabi is the one MMO that lets you get away with AFKing, and because it's the time of day that most people are working.
Does channel 1 fill up like it used to? No. Because auction house now serves the purpose of "shop channel". So people who are online spread out more, have less AFK alts on other machines, etc. There's nothing artificially locking players to a single channel like there was before.
The other servers have been asking for this for years. Let them have it. Honestly, I think most of this is jealousy that the other servers are getting something "new and shiny" and Alexina is "not". Even though the "new and shiny" thing is neither new nor shiny, and doesn't affect us in the least, so long as people don't meme the whole thing into a FUD-panic.
Double check what they meant, or have them double check their inventory. Seriously, I've been watching a discord full of people shouting all afternoon, you are the only one reporting lost items, and now you're saying it's not even from you? I don't think the server would have been reopened had inventories been broken to the point of losing items. They would have rolled back and tried again next week.
Stuff I have tested that are fine:
Items on self, pets, dressing room, etc.
Quests. Even tried logging out just before a turn-in and was able to log in and turn in the quest fine.
I have tested multiple channel changes and logouts.
What *is* being reset are *any* window settings, including hotkeys and bag locations on your screen. Side hotbars won't appear regardless of what your settings are.
TLDR for anyone else watching: Go ahead and do the bare minimum to get your event dailies done, indulge in cash shop, whatever. Just don't go all out fixing your hotkeys today. (Thus it may not be the best day to be trying to run anything serious, like Tech or Phantasm.) There's people in-game running the event dailies just fine.
