9Dragons Acclaim accounts to be restored
In October, Acclaim shut down their servers for 9Dragons abruptly after announcing the game’s transfer to GamersFirst, with the new publisher hoping that they would be able to recover account data.
Today, GamersFirst has announced they’ve been able to restore characters above level 80 from Acclaim, and those characters can now be claimed on GamersFirst 9Dragons accounts. The characters had to be rebuilt from templates based on submissions from players, rather than transferred from Acclaim.
GamersFirst publishes many other MMOs including Knight Online, War Rock, and Hukumdar Online. They are also preparing to publish a free-to-play version of APB.

“We are excited to finally be able to offer character restoration options for the 9Dragons community,” said David Demers, Associate Producer of 9Dragons at GamersFirst. “We want players to know that we appreciate their support during our transition.
