Nohbody reports that the European Jumpgate server will shut down at the end of the month. Jumpgate is the Massively-Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game that almost became Privateer Online.
The loss of the EU server means that the US server will now become the worldwide server by default. Provisions are being made to transfer active EU server accounts to the remaining Jumpgate server. Current EU players who wish to keep flying may do so. NetDevil expects a somewhat bumpy transition period as the billing and support teams, as well as the community, all adapt to the new situation. NetDevil will alter the Terms of Service for Jumpgate to remove the article prohibiting European players on the former US server, which had been required by contract with Mightygames.
