Suba Games are pleased to announce that the long-awaited launch of ACE Online Episode 4 will begin on Thursday, November 15th, at 11:00 AM Eastern Standard Time. No, this is not a drill!

Due to the update process, the ACE Online server may be down for several hours as the update is applied and tested.

ACE Online Episode 4 is a major content update that brings the following significant changes:

Crystal Trigger System

Travel to Ash Lane, a brand-new level, and you'll find a formation of crystals. When using the item Bionic Core of the Phillion, you will be able to destroy the crystals... the order you destroy them in can trigger boss battles, special events, or items. Crystals respawn 1 hour after they are destroyed.

NGC Strategic Point War System

The brand new non-player faction, the NGC, has been discovered! Both ANI and BCU must rally and fight together to destroy the NGC Strategic Point in the brand new Floating Lake map. The nation that deals the most damage to the Strategic Point . The NGC Strategic Point respawns 12 hours after it is destroyed.

New Missions

ACE Online Episode 4 offers 9 new story missions dealing with the new NGC threat, which take place in brand-new maps.

Evolution Type PETs

Players can now purchase Evolution Type Personal Electronic Toys at the War Point shop. After being equipped with either a Buff Auto Use Socket or Condensed Kit Auto Consume Socket, these PETs can be given a share of your XP to boost their effectiveness!

Hundreds of New Items

ACE Online Episode 4 brings a brand new tier of items to the table that go beyond level 100! Dozens of upgraded engines, weapons, crafting materials, and more are available for use! Additionally, existing items, such as Hologram Cards, can be bought using War Points.

New Characters & Appearances

Two brand new characters to play as have been added! Requires a Character Change Card. Starting appearances of all GEARs have also been updated.

And More...

There are even more changes in Episode 4 than is possible to list here, from new Cash Shop items to changes to monster drops, to new I-GEAR skills. We encourage you to check out the game and see all there is to see!

We know the wait has been long, but we'd like to thank all existing ACE Online players for their support and patience, and we're pleased to be able to present the update. To any existing Suba Games users who haven't played ACE Online yet, or if you've just discovered ACE Online, join us on Thursday November 15th!

Update: We've got a brand new trailer ready that shows off some never-before-seen Episode 4 footage!

Check it out here!

I can't help but notice you used that in singular form, as in we're getting Silence and not the Reduce Damage skill. Please tell me I'm wrong.

Not yet... there'll surely be a (T)Rollback after the server fails to update....

And EP3 took 2 days of server downtime, the last major patch took 6... are you sure your time scale isnt horribly off? Things inevitably go wrong, are these factored in?

Also, grind maps? blegh, lvl 100 noobs = more spi from km's for me :D

Are you SURE it works? as in like, SURE? because last time it definitely didn't. If you need last minute testing, let us know now, I've got quite a comprehensive knowledge of glitches and, other things, and would volunteer my testing services if you need it

I want to be excited, but between AR and AO I've seen too many patches fail and need to be rolled back. In AR's case one of em took like a month for them to actually get the patch in.

I highly doubt those bugs would appear, however nether bgear or igear would be that bad. Mgears though... good luck trying to kill em then. Also RD is only 35% max, just like bgear.


I certainly hope there wont be a reset. Till everyone hits 101, with everyone grinding to 101 it will make things a mess. ON TOP OF THAT, it cause the maintenance to last way longer, and that would suck.

How exactly? Bgears have the 35% nerfed RD, igears get the 45%. the eva/def armor fixes i can see, but let's be honest 180% eva is possible at lvl 100 with 25x attack still. MEANING 180% eva and enrils hitting for 1.6k's.


have fun with that

Igear RD is exactly the same as the current Bgear RD. I don't know where you got this 45% from, they just copied the skill over. Eva/Def fixes also don't exist. (well, they are in the database, but no one can gamble them) The only reason KAO had them for a short time was due to a bug in the code.

Also, Igears actually get 3 skill changes.
Reduce Damage added
Silence overhaul
Hypermoving adds 20m/s

Man woried too much on iger new skill? Get use to it soon like were been use to bgers skill for ages. And bout those armor fixes dat givs eva/def i doubt we gona have it. And highly bgear wont ohko igear dat easy anymore

CosmicCube
November 13th, 2012, 11:26 PM
Considering the lvl 100 bawoos are between spools and hammers, and the lvl 110 bawoos are basically hammers... yea... bgear shouldn't have much problem 1 hitting an igear even with RD in place.

Yup but grinding 100 to 110 is da problem and we dont know if we still have this 200%HH XP in ep4. And the 102 cpu got some amazing stats and ther is a cpu that totaly fit for iger with def stats on it.

RD only adds 35%, an Igear at level 98 has 6 k shield?

That means they will get 2.1 k shield extra, which is what? 1 1/2 bawoo from a bgear at his level.

So no biggy.

The default ship armor appearances were changed. Contours *should* be the same. If people really liked that one and it's been changed, we can ask Masang Soft to put it back in as another contour.


i think that only IGears will receive skills update
will get more survivality... MGs will still the same, getting ohko

maybe on ep. 5
We have some ideas kicking around for how to rebalance the game, specifically making buffs last far less time and have longer cooldowns in order to make combat much faster and deadlier than normal (instead of the near-immortality some have in 1v1 situations). But will Masang Soft want to completely rebalance the game and future updates, especially for just our region? I'm not so sure.

You should wait a while to see how the balance really is before you get any ideas regarding balance changes. Non-IGs are preemptively complaining because their easy-mode switch is about to be destroyed.

Make ragings last a minute'n a half with current CD's. Make it so you have to rebuff when you die again, but this time, maintain ragings. Sound good? Tell Masang to make it happen. TIA
