The Merge was a connection of all the English speaking hotels. The Merge occurred on various dates with the different hotels connecting throughout April 2010. Below is a list of all the English speaking hotels that were merged to form Habbo.com (International):
- Habbo.com (USA)
- Habbo.ca (Canada)
- Habbo.co.uk (UK)
- Habbo.com.au (Australia)
- Habbo.com.sg (Singapore)
All the hotels eventually merged into Habbo.com (International). Originally the US and Canadian offices merged Habbo.ca into Habbo.com to form the first part of the merge. A month after it was decided that all English speaking hotels would be merged into Habbo.com. This started with Habbo.com.au. Habbo.com.sg shortly followed but it wasn't until April 10 that the merge was finished with Habbo.co.uk.
Many badges were awarded to members of each hotel after the merge as many people didn't agree with the idea of a merge of english speaking hotels and protested against it. Each badges reflected the images of each country's respective hotel. Below are the badges handed out to Habbos from different areas:
Because different hotels had released different amounts of furni and different lines of furni, the merge created some conflicts of value. For example on Habbo.com, military rooms were made out of Iced furniture because it was rare. However, after the merge they were forced to adopt the Habbo.co.uk style of using Thrones and Majestics because Iced then became so common. Merge Compensation was specially made furniture given out to those Habbos whose rares dramatically decreased in value after the merge as a form of compensation.
