Game Email Address Issue

[email protected].com is currently down thanks to being unexpectedly shutdown by GoDaddy without notice. This email address has always been included with the domain but they decided to abruptly discontinue that service. The email was the only thing still holding us to Godaddy, so soon our domai...

Anything but routine server maintenance

These forums were offline for the past 24 hours due to some complications with a database upgrade because nothing ever goes according to plan. Data was never in any danger of being lost, but a few annoying steps along the way really risked my laptop being thrown out the window. Thankfully cooler hea...

Re: Weapons Update

Yes, tell your friend there will be one large class balancing act before launch to bring everything inline with the current damage changes to weapons and naturals. The last push up to launch will be all about updating classes and their skills.

Re: Weapons Update

Naturals, and to a lesser extent ranged weapons, do function differently from close combat. Bows are getting the same treatment as the other weapons as far as readjusting damage for each material type. Naturals have been undergoing small upticks in damage but will likely need one more adjustment aft...

Weapons Update

The biggest reason for taking the game offline is because of the massive amount of work needed to re-balance the game's items. We learned a lot about what not to do with items and came up with a game plan on how to make items meaningful and valuable again. We flooded the world with custom items beca...

Covid-related excuses

First off, the game is not dead. I didn't want to go into any detail before acknowledging that the relaunch is still in the works. It's been a turbulent year, as EVERYONE is aware, and we have not been immune to the fallout. I thought it would be easy to chalk up the downtime and delay to covid and ...

Status Update on Server Maintenance

We are in the middle of some major upgrades at our hosting center, which started at the end of last week, a couple of days ahead of the scheduled date of 6/13 we were given. That work was not completed so I have kept the game offline this week until their next scheduled work day on 6/20. Once the wo...

Game Server Offline 4/24-4/26

There's a few issues going on right now that I can't address because I am working on a big task for the backend of things this weekend, so I am taking the game offline until Monday, 4/27. The Blessing of the Fleet will be rescheduled to run on the 29th. I apologize for the late notice but there's so...

Spring Progress

Nothing like a plague to free up some time to tackle all those nagging projects that need completing. Austere reminded me that we were better prepared for this pandemic because of the mossy butter plague that swept across the isles back in 420 AoM. Hopefully it's not a sign of things to come as all ...

Re: Shield Block

This is an issue not just with shield block but all defensive skills due to the way the defense is substituted for the attack. I think it's something we'll be able to address over the summer when we go through all the skills to finalize them for the relaunch. Edited to add: We don't usually show the...
