Hi everyone!

Today we've got a small-ish update that brings the following changes:

- Re-added some old event maps that were taken out of the game previously
- Fixed A-GEAR barrier appearing after warp
- Tweaks to Suppy Shops to prevent exploits

In game-related changes:

- OldSchoolFags brigade moved to BCU
- _BGearModel_ removed from BCU leadership staff

Last, we wanted to give you an update on the state of the game. We already told you that Episode 4.2 was in the works, and we'd like to announce the following changes it will bring:

- Two new maps, Lost Oasis and NGC Marine Lab
-- NGC Marine Lab features a repeating event to take down the NGC Mothership
-- Lost Oasis has its own version of the Crystal Trigger System as well as a new shop
- Over a hundred new weapons
- Upgraded versions of existing armors
- All slot armor appearances added as time-limited contours, at a lower price (7 days and 30 days)
- New Hyper Option Cards (pending name change) that offer a better range of prefixes and suffixes to players, can be purchased from the new Lost Oasis shop
-- Hyper Option Cards are available both for cash as well as for War Points

We'll have more details to announce in the future, but for now we'd love to hear your feedback. Please note that all of these are subject to change.

As an aside, remember that you can log in at 4:00 and 4:30 PM EST for our Valentine's Day event, and you'll get special goodies for logging in today as well as for showing up for 5:25.

Have fun!

Insta winsocket when you log in. FIX PLEASE

Also, "fixed barrier appearing after warp", does this mean that if you activate it before going into a warp, you wont have it when going out of it?
That would kill rushes.

Every time I log in (after character select, loading screen goes fine, then i see myself in town for a second), then I crash... and get an error pop up. I'm not suing compatibility mode and I tried running with and without administrator.... what's the deal? are you other guys having this happen too? I dont want to miss the valentines day event lol.

Edit: GM Invo posted just before me... guess we just have to be patient?... (eww.....)

I think this fixes the random bubbles appearing around gears that shouldnt have it like the MG flying around 2 days ago with a blue bubble.

The problem wth AG bubbles is they dissappear after you warp, but they are still active.

Basically current slot armors that you can buy for 8k+ credits will now be just contours that last either 7 / 30 days!

Back to slot machines for armors :S

They won't be that expensive. Same goes for time-limited contours, they are much cheaper than the current permanent ones.

If they are I think they should have a slight price reduction in SP. Paint on armor shouldn't be so hard to get in my opinion.

I`ll actually be annoyed if paint contours are time limited.

If they were time limited paint contours in the WP Shop I wouldn't mind. But we can all hope :ROLLEYES:
Kinda just glad there's progress, where there have been times where nothing has been going on in the development side of things.

I do not know 100% right now, however I believe what is happening is that time-limited ones are replacing all the existing ones in the cash shop. If you own permanent contours, you will NOT lose them.

I'm sorry but that would be bat**** stupid. It is seriously retarded to remove permanent ones in favour of limited, which noone will buy because THEY ARE LIMITED. What you should to is add 500 CHEAP contours (for example, the paintshop colors!), and a cheap contour removal card that will give you the contour back, and then keep it that way.

You will gain MUCH more profit from this. I PROMISE. (well its more like you will actually GET profit from this idea, something you WONT get from the limited ones)


Edit; What i mean by cheap is like 1,2k credits. NOT more. If you also lowered all your credit prices, people might actually start buying credits again, considering how little 10k credits actually give you.

So now, you need to pay WPs to look different, but to look different for a limited amount of time? Even when not pushing for a cash-biased idea Masang manages to **** it up.

Lets think about this, even though the temporary contours will be cheaper and will solve the problem now with the permanent ones (maybe clearing up come Support ticket issues?). Removing the permanent ones thus forcing players to spend more credits in the long run after your temporary one runs out once a month is not at all what anyone would want. I don't know if this was Suba's idea or Masang's but it should in my opinion be re-thought.

As I said I don't know 100% if permanent ones are being removed from the cash shop. What I did say is that you will definitely not lose any old items.

I have asked for a contour removal card before that gives players back the old contour, but Masang Soft did not like the idea and turned it down.

Its still a really bad idea though. Atleast some people were buying the old contours..

You need to change your model to quantity instead of quality. (quailty as in a few, highpriced contours)

I agree, that is one thing we are trying to push with Masang Soft. Ideally, I want to lower contour prices but have them come out more frequently (i.e. 1 set a month). But, it requires more development time. It's on my list of things to push for when 4.2 is out of the way. :)
