I think I've missed the earlier eMail about an upcoming transition of all SOE games, or I just deleted it because I wasn't playing any SOE game anymore, but yesterday this came into my in-box:

Yes, it's right. SOE is forcing it's EU customers to sign-up with ProSiebenSat.1 (7Games, a rather untrustworthy MMO publisher).

There are just a couple of things not clear in this message, and one of them (the main part actually), is weather or not this only effects the logon to the existing servers, or that all gaming data is transferred to ProSiebenSat.1 as well, forcing all EU players to team up again on new servers.

On the EverQuest II forums, this topic is heavily discussed (I only entered today since I missed out on the previous message), and a couple of players tell me that it's only a logon and administration thing that ProSiebenSat.1 will do. I do have to logon using a (new?) ProSiebenSat.1 launcher for EverQuest II and can then logon to the old US servers. On the other hand, the FAQ is not very clear about what's gonna happen, except that we (EU players) are forced to use the new service that's coming up.

For now I have no idea what to do, other than just wait and see what's gonna happen and (more importantly) how it's gonna happen. All I know is that somewhere late July I can expect a new eMail with details on how to make the account transition and what it all will really mean. I certainly won't lay EverQuest II aside now, because I'm having too much fun at this very moment in Norrath

An other interesting thing to mention is that Vanguard: Saga of Heroes is not mentioned in the eMail. Last year around this time there were rumors that devs were assigned to it again, and later last year even rumors that it might go Free2Play as well, but with this eMail not mentioning Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, I fear for it's future
