It has been brought to my attention that unfortunately both the SEA and EU hosts will not be able to continue their duties.
This is very unfortunate from a player standpoint as it will require manual migration of save files to continue playing. When a new set of hosts has been properly recruited (and this time I will be explicitly clear about the long-term ramifications of this task), ZHRPG will be temporarily down in EU and SEA and brought back up under a new name. This will also reset its popularity in those regions.
When that time comes, I will write directions for how you can continue enjoying ZHRPG with your existing save files and will personally assist anyone who requires help in doing so.
I apologize for this inconvenience, but hopefully it will result in more reliable updates to the series in the future.
If you are interested in volunteering your hosting space for ZHRPG, please read the following rules...
As a ZHRPG host, you will have to:
be prepared to assist ZHRPG as a permanent host for as long as ZHRPG is maintained (ideally several years)
sacrifice all your b.net hosting space to support current and future chapters of ZHRPG
follow simple directions for updating the map in your region in a timely fashion
maintain and update a b.net forum thread to keep players in your region informed of news and updates
never under any circumstances give out my maps to anyone (they become public for studying purposes a few weeks after release anyway)
The updating process takes on the order of 10 minutes and will rarely be required more than once a week or two. This is not a large time commitment. It is a commitment of trust and dedication to the long-term maintenance of the series.
What you will gain:
early access to new content
a master save file granting you access to all the unlockable heroes early
If you are interested in becoming a host for ZHRPG, please contact me via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will perform some upload tests to make sure that you have the bandwidth to handle uploading the map files within Blizzard's upload time limit.
