View Full Version : State of the game - March Edition

It's the beginning of March! Time for the monthly state of the game from the GMs.

March Event should be coming soon, hopefully we can get the developer version instead of our not-so-impressive non-developer version of the event. All I can say is that developer or non-developer, it's a Scavenger Hunt style event. But the developer assisted one is 90 times better.

Also for March we should be seeing the patch that helps new players level up faster. I don't think it's a change of missions or exp rate, but what I do know is that it's a whole new batch of weapons to speed things up for new players. Actually, cross out the new on that. It's more or less old weapons reborn. So yeah, REAL Airmuskets are coming if you want an example. (So if you oldies want an airmusket, you'll have to make a new char) I'll give a small list of whats coming.

Air Musket (BS type)
Rafflesia (TT type)
Edelweiss (Bate type)
Angelica (Demonhunter Type)
Butterfly (Hawk Type)

Thats just a small bit. But lets just say that they are basically untradable uniques given to chars as they level up. But I will say this, these weapons pretty much make newbie life easy. So if the names seem like typical engrish well, thats the best we can do lol.

There is also a lot more to the "Beginners" patch as I call it. But I cannot say anything yet. Having been going through JAO trying out what they got for the Beginners patch, it does make things easy. It seems highly possible to hit 70 in a week with just 2 hours a day after this. (Well the help should only go up to 70 i think, still early stages of localization)

In regards to 3.3, as I said not too long ago, this Beginners patch would be the last major patch (Aside from event patches) before the Ep3.3 patch.

So basically, we're on the final stretch to 3.3. We should be testing it very soon actually. I haven't had the chance to try the KAO version so my knowledge on it is still quite blank.

About the Black Cards that we had during valentines, once everything is confirmed with the Billing department, I'll be able to start distributing them around.

I think thats it for now, any questions and such just post.

REMOVE STONES FROM THE MAPS!:)

Or at least make it so ANI cannot access it. This way, They can't bring in 4-5 MG's at the beginning and just Coh 40 heros into the map. I think it makes sense, Lets make a vote:)

Yeh but when bilbato and MG1 both fly thru invisnced and NO ONE FROM BCU CHASES THEM! It kinda hard. Us higher people are trying toi keep people off the MS and the camp at the gate lets MG1 and Bil get thru. I think if people atleast said MG IN it would help us higher levels a little bit. Besides, No one should even be able to get to stones if BCU is doing the right thing.

On a side note, How was the event last night?

There's also only so much information I have about 3.3 since we don't have the test server of it yet so I don't even have much to tell anyways.

There are definitely going to be a lot of changes, one thing I know is that the Infinity Field will be a drastic change and more to be added. Also I said this before and I'll say this again.
