As you probably know Italy has a separate commercial agreement with Mithyc and italian DAoC servers are run by a company called CTO and not by GOA.

I have recently read about the very bad economic situation CTO is running in.

That is not due or related with DAoC in any way but mainly for other economic bad deals and debts the president of CTO, Mr. Madrigali, did (Basketball teams acquired and broke, very high debs etc.).

There is a big moan wave between italian players. After a long time of very good server management seems as the situation is dramatic atm (they still waiting SI and 1.62).
The big majoirity of italian players is moving or has already moved to US servers.

I was just curious to know if there are rumors of contacts or discussions between CTO and GOA on a possible acquirement of italian base servers to GOA.....

Hope not as it would mean we would probably have to wait longer for patches...

GOA Employee 1: We're hosting the italian servers now! Get more staff!
GOA Employee 2: Quick, phone the zoo!

I think he means buying the servers outright, not the italian playerbase. THe best way to get a 3rd english server is to get as many friends/relatives/strangers as possible to play the game. GoA have stated again and again that as it stands the UK playerbase cannot support a 3rd server :D

They've had SI for ages now, and I think they're running 1.62.
No news about Trials of Atlantis on their site though, while they used to patch around the same time as GOA, so they're definitely slowing down :(

The best thing you can do is ask Mythic to try and take over your servers, the last thing you want is GOA running them.

FS, more GOA whines. GOA aint doing that bad a job IMO, yeah the CS side needs a revamp, but give it a rest eh.

Bring the Italians here too, more players = more money = hopefully better service.

Or import their DB to the brit servers and give em a patch to come up to our level :) then gifv 3rd english server :)
